Don’t ever let Asante Samuel tell you that he doesn’t read what people write about him. Clearly, the Eagles corner reads it all. In fact, he even takes note of the bloggers who give him respect, and he wanted all of us to know it Sunday morning when he took to his Twitter account to blast all the people who doubt him. As evidence to support his argument, Asante linked to a blog post from an NFC East website that used statistics to argue that he is still one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. At least some people do their homework and just don’t believe the damn people that never played football.… #greatness At least some people do their homework and just don’t believe the damn people that never played football.… #greatness — Asante Samuel (@pick_six22) April 8, 2012 Samuel followed that tweet up with a few others that showcase his insecurities. “They always say I’m a gambler but I don’t get beat!” he wrote. “Dude

Philadelphia Eagles Week in Review: The Hope for Demetress Bell and the Wait for Jason Peters

Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowl LT Jason Peters had successful surgery for his ruptured  right Achilles tendon on Tuesday. Even before the procedure was performed, speculation about a possible timeline for Peters’ return was rampant.

Eagles 2012 Draft Prospect: North Carolina Defensive End Quinton Coples

Two years ago, the Eagles drafted Brandon Graham and hoped he could be a forceful pass rusher opposite Trent Cole. Graham is yet to live up to expectations, so the Eagles may try to find a young stud again this year. One option they may explore is North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples. At 6-6 and 285 pounds, Coples doesn’t exactly fit the bill of pass rushers the Eagles...

Philadelphia Eagles: offseason news and notes (part two)

The Eagles front office has been busy lately. The Draft is quickly approaching and free agency is in full swing. It’s hard to believe that in just three and a half months the Eagles will be walking onto the practice field at Lehigh University. To put that in perspective, three and a half months ago we were all opening presents and singing carols around the Christmas tree. There...

Philadelphia Eagles sign OT Demetress Bell

Demetress Bell, who now spells his name wrong, signed 5 year, 35 million dollar contract with the Eagles. It’s a front loaded deal with not a lot of guaranteed money so he probably won’t be in Philadelphia for much longer than a year. They need a new left tackle with Jason Peters hurt and Bell was the best available left on the open market. They did overpay slightly for a player...

Philadelphia Eagles Reportedly Interested in S Yeremiah Bell

The problems of the Philadelphia Eagles secondary in 2011 are no secret. So a report that the team is interested in former Miami Dolphin Yeremiah Bell is not terribly surprising. The interest was relayed to a Miami television station via Bell’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, according to the Miami Herald. Bell (6’5, 205) was the longest-tenured player on the Dolphins (8 years) and was...

A few weeks ago the rumor was that the Philadelphia Eagles would trade up and attempt to draft quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The idea that the Eagles would target a QB of the future was very valid but to trade up to the top ten for a 2012 backup is not.
