Which player is under the most pressure?
Chip Kelly is actually under the most pressure. Although the high-profile college coaches have had more success as of late, thanks to Jim Harbaugh, they still don't have a long history of transitioning into the NFL very well. Forget his scheme for now, I am most eager to see how long his players will put up with his dictatorship, which mandates almost everything, including the type of post-workout smoothie that they are allowed to drink. These are grown adults, not college kids. Will his style wear thin on the players as the season unfolds? As we have seen with other heavy-handed coaches, the team is all smiles when they win, but when they lose is when the true co...

BIG PAWS ON A PUPPY
Tweet Lane Johnson, the Philadelphia Eagles first round offensive lineman, became the father of one David Jace Johnson Saturday, just one day after making his preseason debut. Tuesday, the 6’6″. 300-lb Lane tweeted a picture of the newborn, revealing that young David has some of the largest hands you’ll ever see on a baby: Big […]
With Former Eagles Coach Andy Reid out in Kansas City , and high scoring Head Coach from University of Oregon Chip Kelly taking over, you would think he would want to push the pace with a naturally fast team and look to push it as he did in College Football, Will all of those plays work? Of course not, but the speed they have in D.Jackson, Mike Vick, and Lesean Mccoy, you would think...

The post Lane Johnson’s newborn son has some really big hands (Photo) appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
Philadelphia Eagles WR Greg Salas has gone from being a camp body afterthought to being in the conversation for a spot on the 53-man roster. That’s what two season-ending injuries to players ahead of you on the depth chart and making a highlight reel catch in a game can do. I just wrote recently that Ifeanyi Momah and Russell Shepard would be the main two competitors for what...
Eagles rookie offensive tackle Lane Johnson is 6-6, 310 pounds, and from Texas, so the fact that he would be this big burly guy is not surprising.
Johnson and his beautiful wife gave birth to a new baby boy named David Jace on Saturday.
Johnson released a wonderful photo of his newborn, and in the photo courtesy of Crossing Broad, you can see young David Jace is already following...
Cornerback Cary Williams arrived in Philadelphia this offseason signing a three-year $17 million deal after winning a Super Bowl with the Ravens. He was brought in to add some much-needed toughness to a unit that was mediocre against the run (17th overall in 2012 according to Football Outsiders) and nonexistent against the pass (dead last in the league).
Through the first few weeks...
ESPN has parted ways with former Philadelphia Eagles lineman Hugh Douglas in the wake of his alleged confrontation with “Numbers Never Lie” co-host Michael Smith. “He no longer works for us effective today,” an ESPN spokesperson said Tuesday, according to SI.com’s Richard Deitsch. The news should not come as a shock to anyone after hearing […]
Nick Foles, you're up.
Foles will be the starting quarterback when the Philadelphia Eagles play their second preseason game against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. Michael Vick started last week's 31-22 to loss to New England and now it's Foles' turn to take the first snap.
The two quarterbacks have been alternating days starting out with the first team...
Every team needs a leader for games, and especially when the games are on the road. The Eagles are no exception to that rule, and for them, Patrick Chung was that guy. Chung, who had problems last year and fell down in the charts for New England, signed a three year contract with Philly in the off season.He also stepped up his game this week, and for the rookies, he became a huge...
Eagles 22 – Patriots 31
Regardless of who you’re rooting for in the QB competition, both Vick and Foles looked sharp in their first outings of the 2013 season. Vick opened with a quick “looks like the Eagles we know & love” TD drive that featured a long pass to my boy Jason Avant and a beautiful TD to DeSean (–>) that gives me hope that we’ll see the return of...
