Although offensive tackle Luke Joeckel has been getting a lot of attention, small school product Eric Fisher is making a strong case that he should be the top offensive tackle off the board in this years NFL Draft. Out of Central Michigan, Fisher stands at 6-7 and 306 pounds. Despite the prototypical offensive tackle frame, Fisher showed some versatility, playing guard at times.
At the next level, Fisher will line up on the outside, but again teams should be aware that he has versatility. The majority of his tenure was at left tackle, but Fisher also lined up at right tackle for a handful of games.
What allows Fisher to succeed most at the tackle position has to be his footwork. For such a large guy, he is very quick on his feet and doesn’t let defenders beat him to the edge. He’s also able to shift and stay on defenders when they try to break off in another direction. Fisher does all of this while keeping a wide base that makes it very difficult to get around. Defenders who ...

If the Philadelphia Eagles pursue safety Kenny Phillips in free agency, they might be able to thank LeSean McCoy for making it possible. If you don’t recall, it was McCoy who put a juke on Phillips in Week 4 of 2012 that caused him to twist his knee and do some damage to his MCL and PCL.

That play knocked Phillips out of the game and basically...
It’s a common trend for college coaches that go to the NFL to try to bring as much with them. Some have success; however, most don’t do to so good. For every Pete Carroll, there is a Steve Spurrier, for every Jimmy Johnson, there is a Nick Saban. Carroll had previous NFL experience; Johnson was given the greatest heist in trade history when he inherited a gold mine for Herschel...
The Philadelphia Eagles have signed quarterback G.J. Kinne to a two-year contract.
Kinne played three seasons at Tulsa and signed as a rookie free agent with the New York Jets last year before being released in June. He played briefly in the UFL and Arena Football league.
Kinne finished his career at Tulsa ranked second in school history in passing yards (9,472), total offense...
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets aren’t interested in trading for Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who played for Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg last year in Philly.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has a little of free time on his hands before he begins his quarterback competition with Nick Foles, so what better way to use your time wisely, then to sign your family and yourself up for some dog training classes.

After spending the 2012-13 playing under the franchise tag, Dwayne Bowe has finally gotten a longterm deal done with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The wide receiver has obviously bought into what the new administration of general manager John Dorsey and former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is selling.

For a little while, there was a tedious debate about whether Michael Vick should be allowed to own another dog after he went to prison for dogfighting and doggy rapestands. Well, Vick does currently have a dog, so you can probably guess how all that turned out.
Still, dog lovers should be at least somewhat pleased to learn that Ookie is making an effort to care for Angel, the Belgian...
With Michael Vick seemingly a better fit for the new Chip Kelly offense of the Philadelphia Eagles and Alex Smith reportedly the new quarterback for former Eagles head coach Andy Reid in Kansas City, second-year quarterback Nick Foles would seem to be in limbo. There has been a lot of speculation that the New York Jets are now the most likely target of a Foles trade given that new...
The best kind of DeSean Jackson is one that’s engaged, involved, active, blazing around the corners of defenses, juking and hopping before weak-kneed defenders, taunting opponents and fans with equal fervor and, yes, a nuclear level of douchiness.
That was not 2012 Jackson. The guy you snatched in the late fifth or early sixth round of last year’s fantasy drafts posted abysmal...
