Fightin For Philly:
NFL.com writer Chris Wesseling ranked the 10 best wide receiver duos in the NFL. Coming in at No. 7 were the Eagles’ DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper. Wesseling had this to say: Jackson isn’t a true No. 1 receiver — he doesn’t make contested catches in traffic or move the chains — but he’s a big-play machine in Chip Kelly’s offense. A liability in the first month of the season, Cooper has been a top-10 receiver in terms of yards and touchdowns over the past six weeks. He’s making a strong argument for the Eagles to move on from impending free agent Jeremy Maclin in 2014. Jackson ranks 3rd in the NFL with 985 receiving yards to go along with his 7 touchdowns. Cooper is 32nd in yards, ahead of players like Marques Colston, Vernon Davis and Larry Fitzgerald. He also has 7 TDs, which ties him with Jackson and others for 9th best in the league. Cooper has been playing much better with Nick Foles under center. Foles seems fairly confident in Cooper and Jackson, establishing a deep game that opposing defenses haven’t been able to cover.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Eagles are on a bye week. A much needed bye week because the team can get healthy and be prepared for the final five games of the regular season. As the Eagles have a half game lead in the NFC East, the Cowboys, Giants, and Redskins all play this week. The Cowboys play the Giants in the Meadowlands while Washington plays the 49ers. A Dallas win would put the Cowboys in 1st place...
After 11 games, LeSean McCoy leads the NFL with 1,009 rushing yards. Anyone who has seen him run will tell you about his amazing moves — his violent jukes, astounding cutbacks, his speed. Anyone who has tried to tackle him will tell you that he simply doesn’t like facing him. McCoy is good — that much is certain. Is he the best? I think he is. McCoy has fumbled...
It is safe to say at this point that the Philadelphia Eagles are on their way to the playoffs and being the NFC East champs. This upcoming week, they are on the bye and are going to be well prepared for the stretch that is coming up in December. They’ve jelled just at the right time and now with this break coming up, they can perfect what they’ve gotten so great at.
With Michael Vick’s recent comments that he believes Nick Foles should remain the Eagles starter because of how well he’s playing, we decided to reach out to Marcus Vick and ask him what he thinks.
I agree…. The #'s RT @ProFootballZone: @MVFive what do you think about your brother's comments that Nick Foles should remain the starter?

ESPN analyst Bill Polian was asked to describe what led to Redskins QB Robert Griffin III’s interception that ultimately sealed the Eagles’ victory. Polian’s response was priceless if you’re as immature as I am.
The Philadelphia Eagles have come together as a unit quite nicely over the past few weeks. A team who finished 4-12 last season, now sit at 6-5 through eleven weeks and surpassed their win totals from last season. A defense that was worse than atrocious last season has come together quite nicely under defensive coordinator, Billy Davis. The defense has not allowed more than 21...
Mike Vick was on 94.1 WIP yesterday, and said something pretty unexpected. In all honesty — in all fairness — how can you take a guy out of the game who’s been playing so well?… I understand the position that this team is in, and the one thing I never want to do is be a distraction or put our team and our coaches in a position where they feel like they’re not doing the...
Michael Vick has really never been in a predicament where he was a back-up, but on Thursday night in an interview Vick was asked numerous questions about his nagging hamstring as well as Nick Foles. “In all honesty, in all fairness, how can you take a guy out of the game who’s been playing so […]
Michael Vick is a changed man since returning to the NFL, and one thing that he is now, is class personified.
Nick Foles has thrown 16 touchdowns, and no interceptions on the season, yet it was Vick who had the courage to say what others around him were hesitant to.
According to CSN Philly, Vick said “there’s no way Foles can come out of the lineup now.”
Vick, during his weekly...
The Philadelphia Eagles have been a better team with Nick Foles as their starting quarterback this season. Over the past seven games in which he has appeared, Foles has thrown 16 touchdowns and not a single interception. He has successfully put to rest any speculation about a quarterback controversy when Michael Vick is healthy again. […]
I’ve noticed that some people on Twitter have started referring to Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin as “Boy King”. It’s really the only way to go with his last name.
So, here’s Brandon Boykin as the best known Boy King, King Tut!

It's not just about Chip Kelly, it's also about DL coach Jerry Azzinaro, DB coach John Lovett, OL coach Jeff Stoutland, QB coach Bill Lazor, DC Bill Davis and ST coach Dave Fipp.
I give the group as a whole a B+ grade going into the final trimester of a seriously entertaining Eagles season. The main reason for a high grade is these coaches have collectively transformed...
From the outside, it looks like Nick Foles is absolutely at the top of his game.
It’s impossible to imagine him playing any better. Heck, it's hard to imagine anybody playing any better.
He’s only the third quarterback in NFL history to throw 16 touchdowns in a season before his first interception. His 128.0 passer rating is the highest ever by a quarterback 11 games...
Washington Redskins cornerback E.J. Biggers has been assessed a fine of $21,000 for a helmet to helmet hit against Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, according to a league spokesman. The hit happened in the Redskins 24-16 loss to the Eagles this past week.
The play was occured when Eagles quarterback Nick Foles hit Jackson on a 19 yard pass play in which Biggers...
