Riley Cooper drops the ‘n’ word at Kenny Chesney concert

Riley Cooper got himself into a little bit of a fight in the parking lot outside of a Kenny Chesney concert about a month ago, but nothing much was made of it.

Eagles rumors: Philly to replace Jeremy Maclin from within

The Philadelphia Eagles have already suffered their first significant injury of the season, as the team lost wide receiver Jeremy Maclin for the season due to an ACL injury.

Chiefs' Charles should be next in line of RBs to shine under Reid

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- Duce Staley. Brian Westbrook. LeSean McCoy. If there's one thing coach Andy Reid's history with the Philadelphia Eagles proves, it's that he loves versatile running backs who are just as comfortable bursting around the edge for huge runs as they are setting up as wide receivers and hauling in rainbows down the seam. That role is now in the hands of...

Marcus Vick places bounty on Riley Cooper after racist remarks

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper uncomfortable situation with his quarterback Michael Vick just got a lot more uncomfortable.

Philadelphia Eagles to Retire Donovan McNabb's Number

The Philadelphia Eagles held a press conference on Monday for quarterback Donovan McNabb to officially retire as a member of the Eagles, but franchise owner Jeffrey Lurie did one better. Lurie said the Eagles would retire the quarterback’s No. 5. The number will be officially retired at halftime on Sept. 19 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Perhaps, the Eagles chose that game on...

Chippah holds back on the hitting...

I guess Chip Kelly decided to limit the actual hitting and tackling this past Sunday at the public training camp session held at the Linc. Probably a wise decision, I suppose. Not that the devastating knee injury to Jeremy Maclin on Saturday had anything to do with hitting or tackling. It did not. Still, there was a squeamish feeling surrounding the Linc on Sunday. As Jordan...

Raanan says Vick is winning the job...for now...

I had to go deep into my bullpen today to bring out Jordan Raanan in relief. He's the NJ.com guy who's coming up fast. Good looking guy, too, so you might be seeing him soon on visual media. What happened to make me call in this favor from Raanan? I accidentally deleted my original article before hitting "Save". It was an all-original piece, too, and it had...

Reids' Chiefs get tackling early in training camp

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt admitted to cringing on Monday when he stopped by to see his team practice through intermittent rain just four days into training camp. The sight of Jamaal Charles hauling himself off the soggy turf has that effect. Under new coach Andy Reid, the Chiefs are going full speed and tackling to the ground less than a week into their workouts at Missouri Western...

Marcus Vick put bounty on Cooper for racial slur

Marcus Vick, younger brother of Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, is at it again on Twitter. Vick, the QB, has had to ask his bro to pipe down and shut it before, and it looks like he just might have to do it again.  Marcus follows his brother’s team very closely, and its for certain that Riley Cooper’s antics at a Kenny Chesney concert have not gone unnoticed by young Vick....
