According to Brent Celek, the Eagles have gone from the Dream Team to everyone's favorite punch line.

"We've got four games left to prove that we're a legitimate team, because right now the world's laughing at us," said Celek to Johnathan Tamari of

While people in Philly may not be laughing about what has been arguably the most dissapointing season in the franchise's history, he is right about the national media. ESPN and the NFL Network have been ripping the Eagles since their embarrasing loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday, and really have not taken this team seriously for weeks. They point to the dissapointing play and the bad attitudes that have marked this Eagles season.

Celek is one player who has lived up to expectations this season, as he has become a more intrical part of the passing game. Ater being asked to block most of the last year, Celek came up big in both the Washington Redskin game and Dallas Cowboy game, two games that were must win at that point of the season.

It is also nice to see a player on the Eagles acknowledge that they are not deserving of praise, unlike other's in the locker room who have scolded fans for booing and not showing support.

"We've got a lot of talent, and we're just not living up to it," Celek said. "I'm embarrassed about it. I'm sick about it."

Report: Andy Reid Stays Unless He Fires Castillo

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk believes there is a way that Andy Reid could remain the head coach of the Eagles. Per a league source, Reid’s future will hinge on his willingness to admit that it was a mistake to shift Juan Castillo from offensive line coach to defensive coordinator.  If Reid concedes that he erred, and rectifies the blunder by firing Castillo, Reid will stay...

Misery continues for the Philadelphia Eagles as they log another loss

Who Will Replace Andy Reid?

After last night’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks, its looks like Reid has lost control of the Eagles. He's had his fair share of chances and it tenure has run its course. He has to do a better job yet never does. He hired former Offensive Line Coach Juan Castillo to run his defense. What is he doing? But who will replace the most successful coach in the history of the franchise...

Eagles DeSean Jackson performing himself out of a big contract

What seemed to be an endless supply of new faces and free agents at the start of training camp for the Philadelphia Eagles seemed to make a sure path to the Super Bowl. Sitting at 4-8, thirteen weeks into the season, nothing could be further than the truth. And while DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy are both making less than $1,000,000 on their respective rookie contracts, one...

NFL Network Took A Few (Unnecessary) Shots At DeSean Jackson

We have had our fair share of anger towards DeSean Jackson, but last night the NFL Network took things too far. They portrayed DeSean Jackson as ignoring Vince Young on the sidelines, when it was pretty clear that Young was talking to Riley Cooper. Here is video of the incident, courtesy of Black Sports Online.   Our friends over at Crossing Broad captured the audio of...

Vick’s contract will be a factor in Reid’s status

Earlier this week, the word on the NFL street was that, despite the implosion of the Dream Team, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie would keep coach Andy Reid. After last night’s sleepwalk in Seattle, it’s hard to feel good about Reid’s future in Philly. But then there’s this.  Quarterback Mike Vick has a fully guaranteed base…

From The Bleachers 12.2.11

As the end of the week approaches, a pair of OWS contributors banter about some of the important (and not so important) news items of the week. …the Eagles. So, um, they’re kind of bad, huh? All that aside, my favorite character in this whole thing is Desean Jackson (or, as the back page of the NY Post will soon label this clubhouse cancer, DISEASE Jackson). He’s kind...
