Just when you think the NFC East might not be the league’s toughest, the New York Giants, who barely won the division title, made a monstrous raid on the Super Bowl and took all the candy. The Giants are not the favorites to defend their title in the NFL’s most competitive division.
The 2012 Beast of the East will not have football’s best record. NFC East teams run a gauntlet against each other and the NFC North where even the Cleveland Browns have a rugged defense.
The betting crowd favors the Philadelphia Eagles to retake the division after its 2011 swoon. The Eagles are in the same division as Daniel Snyder, yet failed to heed the adage, “You can’t buy a championship.” That talent infusion will pay off this year, now that the Eagles have had a full offseason to jell. The Eagles, especially the defense, came on strong to finish the season with four straight wins. Philadelphia’s 17 sacks during that run was one-third of the year’s total.
The 2012 Eagles moved ahead by standing pat...

The beginning of Philadelphia Eagles training camp signals the closing of the offseason; therefore, it’s time to go back and determine which upgrades will be most beneficial for the future.
After making some quality moves to begin the NFL free agency period, Andy Reid received high marks for his selections in the NFL Draft.
Now while these upgrades might not have you...

Eagles CB Nnamdi Asomugha had the opportunity to speak at an event for President Obama in Oakland on Monday. Everyone knows how big of a sports fan President Obama is. He took the opportunity to give some advice to Eagles QB Michaek Vick via Asomugha. “He told me,” Asomugha said (via the Philadelphia Inquirer), “to [...]
Michael Vick burned all his owners last season, including me. But it’s a new year and Mike has another opportunity to prove his critics wrong. The studs are set. Rodgers, Brady and Brees have played themselves into a separate category. They’re goin’ after the tier one running backs are selected. Then who? Well Reid’s strategy remains pass oriented. Vick will get his. And...
Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, if Mike Vick does indeed slide at any point in the 2012 season, I think that Eagles fans owe President Barack Obama a fruit basket, at the very least.
Why? Because Vick, more than ever, seems to have received the message.
When asked about his reaction to Obama’s comments on Thursday, the quarterback said that he heard the...

DeSean Jackson is a polarizing fantasy player. One week he’ll go nuts and the next he’ll go off. The Eagles finally paid the man, so the pouting and lazy route running are hopefully done with. I’ll still grab Jeremy Maclin over D-Jax and be a happy guy.

Thanks for letting me borrow your shirt Juan…
Jeremy Maclin is good. According to him, he’s DAMN GOOD. I love this shirt and I love me some Jeremy Maclin this season. The cat is almost out of the bag on the Eagles WR, so getting great value is waning. Still, he should easily be the #1 WR on a team that loves to throw the ball.
