I had an opportunity to speak with Gayle Jackson, DeSean Jackson’s mother, after a private screening of the documentary “The Making of a Father’s Dream,” which was released on Father’s Day. How did it feel to relive such emotional moments in her family’s history, and for the world to be see such a different side of her NFL star son? The film is the product of 18 years of footage taken by Byron Jackson, DeSean’s older brother, from when DeSean was just five years old through his time in the NFL.

Fantasy Football Rookie Report: Eagles QB Matt Barkley

I don't think I have kept my love for the Matt Barkley pick a secret since it happened.My belief is that Chip Kelly would not have made the trade up in the fourth round if he wasn't so sure that Barkley would fit into his offense nicely.Everyone knew there would be a quarterback battle in Philadelphia at the end of last season, but now it's a competition between Michael...

It's too early to tell, since rookie Zach Ertz just became eligible to practice with the Eagles, but apparently some outside sources already like what the Chippah is cooking up with his TE emphasis on offense.
