Kissing Suzy Kolber:
Everybody had a good chuckle when the cameras spotted Andy Reid in his Tommy Bahama drafting poncho during the first round of this year’s draft. Thankfully, local sports radio in Kansas City actually got around to asking Reid about it, because the world is much richer for Reid’s response. “You know what, over on the Plaza [in Kansas City] there’s a Tommy Bahama shop,” Reid told The Program’s Soren Petro on Monday. “There’s a lady over there who took care of me, the manager of the store over there. She heard the story about the Tommy Bahama shirts and she sent that one over to me without any fanfare or anything. I appreciated that.” “You wear them and you can hide cheeseburgers underneath and no one will ever know.” Hide cheeseburgers? I thought Andy Reid was all about cheeseburgers for everybody. I suppose that’s the sort of discipline you have to instill when coaching a new team. You withhold the cheeseburgers now, then reward the players with cheeseburgers when they do well. The pos

If you watched the 2013 NFL Draft, and noticed the Kansas City Chiefs war room, you might have seen a curious sight. Head coach, Andy Reid, wearing a rather colorful shirt. In case you missed it, the guys over at SB Nation’s Arrowhead Pride have supplied a picture of Reid’s shirt.

The Philadelphia Eagles drafted USC QB Matt Barkley with the first pick in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Apparently they feared that the Chiefs may take him so they worked out a deal with the Jaguars to move up to the first pick (only gave up a seventh-rounder).
And we thought we knew Chip Kelly, huh?

LSU wide receiver Russell Shepard may have gotten Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles in a bit of trouble.
He's claiming that Kelly called him during the sixth round to let him know that they could not draft him due to lost picks in trading up to grab QB Matt Barkley.
“I actually took myself off the draft board during the draft,” Shepard said on WNXX radio, via LouisianaDaily...

While the news of the Philadelphia Eagles’ selection of Matt Barkley was still setting in, the Eagles were still busy making their remaining picks in the 2013 NFL Draft. The four picks following Barkley for the Birds were all on defense. To round out their selections, the Eagles drafted S...
The 2013 Philadelphia Eagles draft class has Chip Kelly’s fingerprints all over it. The team has stated the entire time that the decision-making would be a collaborative effort. But, make no mistake, these are all Kelly-type players.
Much more-so than in recent years, I found myself having a dizzying array of feelings during this draft. I was excited, frustrated, surprised...
It’s all about competition now for Eagles coach Chip Kelly and his quarterbacks, but at some point someone has to take the lead.
While that process has been going on for a month, the competition level was raised when the team drafted USC QB Matt Barkley.
However, Kelly want his starting quarterback to earn the role, even if that means a starter won’t be named until preseason...

It appeared, for about a minute and a half, that James Casey was the Philadelphia Eagles tight end begging to be bought at rock-bottom prices in drafts this summer.
Not so anymore.
I’ve talked plenty over the past few months about the merits of streaming tight ends if you don’t secure one of the elites in the first couple rounds of your fantasy drafts. Teams are throwing more...
QuarterbacksEverybody is trying to figure out why Chip Kelly and the Eagles decided to trade up and draft USC quarterback Matt Barkley in the fourth round.
I was shocked at the move myself, until I stepped back and considered the obvious. Kelly and his staff aren’t sure about any of the Eagles quarterbacks. Are any of [...](Read more...)

With the 2013 NFL Draft almost in the books, I think it’s safe to start diagnosing and criticizing Howie Roseman and Co.’s 2013 draft class. After all, the latter is what we do best here in Philadelphia isn’t it?
I’m not going to cover every draft pick in this article, I just want to talk about the most compelling three picks.
Let’s get right to it.
The nature of drafting QBs that even people who don't follow college football have heard of is that they have far more interest for the general public than any other position. The Eagles are about to learn all about this as Matt Barkley, once a top-10 lock and eventually a fourth-round gamble, joins the flock.
The thing about QBs... unless we're about to enter...
