I’ve talked a lot recently about forms pre-draft interest the Philadelphia Eagles have shown in prospects and what it may mean as far as who they may select, particularly in Round 1.
This time of year everyone is looking for a good nugget of information regarding what players the Eagles have been linked to in one way or another. Combine/Senior Bowl/Shrine Game interviews, Pro Day attendances by a coach, private workouts and official visits to the NovaCare Center are all taken as a form of pre-draft interest.
However, just because the Eagles have reportedly interviewed, worked out, or brought someone in for a visit doesn’t necessarily mean they’re eying-up that prospect and have intentions on drafting him.
All of these forms of “interest” in prospects are mainly information gathering because they’re “interested” in finding out as much information about a certain prospect as possible so they can make an ultimate decision on where they will rank that player on their draft board (or re...

Could DeSean Jackson be the key to the Redskins success next season?
This NFL offseason saw former Philadelphia Eagle DeSean Jackson get cut and then quickly land a spot on the Washington Redskins.
As the Redskins newest receiver, Jackson will face the Eagles not once, but twice.
And, it is something he is really looking forward to.
Monday night, Jackson appeared on the Aresenio...

We start with the quarterbacks.

There were some questions as to whether the offensive system Chip Kelly ran while coaching in college would translate to the NFL. If year one of his tenure in Philadelphia is any indication, his professional team will do just fine.
Philadelphia exploded out of the gate with a win against Washington, then went through some ups and downs. But a 7-1 second half allowed the Eagles to...

DeSean Jackson will continue to be linked to the Philadelphia Eagles until he becomes deeply entrenched with the Washington Redskins.
To achieve that immersion, the wideout will have to not only make big plays in 2014-15, said plays will have to lead to postseason success.
