Hey Eagles Addicts, do you like to play Fantasy Football? Do you want a chance to win a brand-spankin’ new Nike LeSean McCoy jersey?
If so, sign up to join our FF league here at EA and compete against myself as well as the two other EA writers: Ron Pasceri and Jasen Shen!
Brand new jersey, made by Nike
We’ll be creating a 12-team league so we need nine more players. The first nine people to either reply to this post or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, will be entered into the league.
I’ll definitely need your email address so if you reply to this post and are wary of leaving your real email address, just shoot me a quick note.
Once the league is set, I’ll be communicating with you via email for the rest of the details.
This is your chance to not only win a McCoy jersey, but it’s also your chance to show us how good you are at being a “fake” General Manager!
Think you got what it takes to beat the writers here?
And by the way, we, the writers, are not eligible ...
BEST OF MAXIM
As Philadelphia Eagles training camp continues, the contenders and pretenders for roster spots are starting to separate themselves a little bit. Nothing is settled yet, of course, but there are a few new players who have a legitimate chance of making this team.
By new players, I’m not referring to any of the Eagles’ draft picks because for the most part, they are all virtual...
On July 30th, yours truly visited the Philadelphia Eagles training camp as a member of the media. I’ve been to camp numerous times before, but this was my first experience with media credentials.
Therefore, I decided to go to both the morning walk-through practice as well as the afternoon practice. Being that I was a “newbie”, my plan was to just sit back and observe...
Eagles left defensive end Jason Babin could miss most of training camp with a partially torn muscle in his left calf. An MRI exam revealed Babin has a second-degree strain, which occurred Saturday during a one-on-one pass-rushing drill against right tackle Todd Herremans. Babin was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2011 with 18 sacks and three forced fumbles after re-joining the...
The longest tenured coach in the NFL right now is Andy Reid. He has been the coach in Philadelphia since 1999. Since he has taken over the Eagles, they have won 6 division titles. Been to the NFC Championship game 5 times(which he is 1-4), and has made it to the Super Bowl just 1 time (which he lost to New England 24-21). Since 1999 the rival Giants have made it to the Super Bowl...
The Philadelphia Eagles have traded linebackers Moise Fokou and Greg Lloyd to the Indianapolis Colts for cornerback Kevin Thomas and a conditional seven-round pick in the 2013 draft.
Thomas, a third-round pick in 2010, played in nine games last season with the Colts, starting five. He had 33 tackles and three knockdowns. Thomas spent his rookies season on injured reserve because...
The Eagles are committed to lightening the workload running back LeSean McCoy takes on this season. To do that, offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and coach Andy Reid must identify a steady backup who they can trust on all downs. They'll also have to convince McCoy to accept a breather from time to time. "With our running back position, I think that (general manager...
Former University of Michigan linebacker/current Philadelphia Eagles defensive end (same person, he moved positions) Brandon Graham is strong. That’s 500 pounds and that’s him throwing it up four times, rather easily too.
The Big Lead
The Philadelphia Eagles acquired cornerback Kevin Thomas and a conditional seventh-round draft pick in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts that sent linebackers Moise Fokou and Greg Lloyd to the Colts. Colts general manager Ryan Grigson had been the Eagles director of player personnel before being hired by Indianapolis in January, and this is the second trade he's made with...
No matter what I say or do, I won’t be able to convince owners who drafted Michael Vick last year that they should take him again this year.
The damage has been done. It’s irreparable. Fantasy owners don’t forget, and they hold grudges. It’s part of our game.
But for the other 11 owners in any given league, Vick and other post-hype players are ripe for the picking. The five...
