Three weeks into the NFL season, are the Philadelphia Eagles where you thought they would be, with the record of 1-2? If you answered yes to that question, and think no adjustments need to be made, please stop reading here.

This type of thing happens in the first few weeks of the season, partially due to warmer temperatures, and partially due to conditioning. In the end, all that matters is they won the game.

QB Michael Vick took a beating at the hands of the Chiefs defense and the fast tempo seemed to only help Kansas City. Vick looked like the 2011-12 version, and that's not a good thing.
The purpose of Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense is to run as many plays as possible in the shortest amount of time to maximize scoring potential.
It worked for two quarters.
Since cramming 53 plays into the first half of their season opener, the Philadelphia Eagles have run 145 plays in the last 10 quarters. Not coincidentally, they beat Washington 33-27 in Week 1 and lost the...

The Eagles have released cornerback Brandon Hughes, the club said Saturday.

Yup, this is happening. The crusade to get Vinny Curry more playing time has begun.

I am fully aware that the 2nd year end only played 12 snaps versus the Kansas City Chiefs, but did you see what he did? One sack, one tackle, and applied pressure...

Week Four Rankings
Michael Vick – Vick finds himself near the top of rankings once again this week as the Eagles head to Denver in what should be a shoot-out. The Eagles should lose this game handily but should see plenty of garbage time production. Hopefully the Broncos don’t cause too many fumbles or picks which could tarnish Vick’s potential fantasy production.
