It's our turn now.  A lonely nation beseeches the Eagles to "show me what you can do!"... Personally I think you attack the Redskins' linebackers' pass coverage early with your tight ends and set the tone... But who knows how Chip Kelly and staff plan to play it out? Thanks to Anthony Brown of , we are at least warned of a few roadblocks that await us. Per Mr. Brown, these facts are evident: 1. RGIII is perfectly healthy and ready. Mike Shanahan could have kept Griffin on the bench for this game and gotten no criticism for it if indeed Griffin were not 100%. But in fact, RGIII is completely healed and ready to play. 2. Brian Orakpo is perfectly ready to play, too.  Torn pec muscles are no joke, but Orakpo got as much if not more medical attention to correct his medical issues as RGIII. Orakpo's main concern is to avoid arm tackles. 3. RGIII has been told to throw the ball away when he might be in pressure si...

Eagles used celebrity flash cards for play calling

Take a moment, soak it in, and understand that yes, what you are seeing is real.  The Eagles let it be known that they were going to introduce some innovative signs to signal plays as part of their high-paced, no-huddle offense, but I don’t think anyone knew it would be taken this far.  Among their various forms of signage, the Eagles used flash cards of Elvis and Rocky, oh yeah...

Michael Vick was “hobbling” after Monday night’s win

According to,  Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was seen hobbling after last night’s win over the Redskins. Vick had a great game, but took way too many shots and failed to protect himself, which isn’t a surprise given his injury history. I find it really interesting that Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and Vick aren’t worried about him getting injured.  Sadly enough...

Eagles DeSean Jackson hits his “Cousin Terio” dance in the endzone

The first Monday Night Football game of the 2013 NFL season did not disappoint.

Michael Vick Says If Cary Williams Is ‘Hot-Headed,’ it Will Hurt Eagles

Cary Williams was brought to Philadelphia to bring Super Bowl experience and quality play at the cornerback position. So far Williams has been anything but an experienced veteran for the Eagles.  On the heels of his fight with Riley Cooper on Thursday, the question now being asked, is whether or not Williams is a liability for the Eagles. Michael Vick, who is the teams captain,...

Eagles Accuse Redskins of Faking Injuries (Video)

It’s amazing that no matter where Chip Kelly coaches, players on the other side happen to go down with a lot of injuries. Last night there were accusations by the Eagles players that some of the injuries by the Redskins were fake. Some of those “injuries” did look a little suspect. It is pretty strange that the Redskins were getting cramps in game 1 during the first quarter...

Eagles vs. Redskins Week 1 WTF and WTG Awards

The Chip Kelly era is off to a good start as his Philadelphia Eagles beat the Washington Redskins 33-27 in Week 1 of the 2013 season.  The offense was a machine and the defense was surprisingly adept in the first half of the game. However, in the second half things got a little uneasy as the Eagles had to hold-off a Redskin rally. Below are my WTF and WTG awards as well as some...

Michael Vick Says He Could Have Played Another Four Quarters Against Redskins, Admits Eagles Offense Can’t Get Much Faster

Michael Vick is fast. The Eagles’ offense on Monday night was even faster. Chip Kelly‘s influence on the Eagles’ new-look offense was obvious against Washington on Monday. The Eagles ran 77 offensive plays in the game, some which happened within 10-12 seconds of one another. At times, the Eagles looked like they weren’t even communicating with one another anymore, but rather...

Vick, McCoy lead Eagles over 'Skins

Just try to keep up with Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and the Philadelphia Eagles this season. Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins sure couldn't. Playing at a frenetic pace that left the Redskins bumbling and stumbling, the Eagles unleashed coach Chip Kelly's offense on the NFL and crammed 77 plays into 60 minutes of football. They had their share of miscues, of...

Eagles Win Opener; Washington Breathless

The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Washington Redskins 33-27 in Chip Kelly’s debut on Monday Night Football. The Eagles offense ran the Washington defense ragged all night long, as Michael Vick went 15-25 for 203 and two touchdowns while adding 52 yards on the ground and rushing for one score. Although the Eagles offense will be the story, the defense played very well for most of...
