Philly Sports Muse:
Running back LeSean McCoy was the last member of the Philadelphia Eagles to be featured on the NFL Network’s countdown of the league’s top 100 players of 2012. Shady came in at number 18.
Though McCoy wasn’t as displeased about his rating as quarterback Mike Vick, the opinions of his peers are still important to him. And he plans to prove them wrong in next year’s countdown. Shady took to Twitter to reveal his feelings on the ranking, saying, “Rating me #18 out of the whole NFL …. Next year top 5.”

The highest NFL player on the list is Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, whose earnings in the past year made him the 10th ...

Safety Oshiomogho (O.J.) Atogwe signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles and knows that he will need to hit the ground running in order to get up to speed on learning the team’s defense without the benefit of OTAs and minicamp, all of which have passed. But it’s a challenge he’s ready to face.
“I’ve been fortunate in my career to be able to pick up defenses quickly...

As I lick my chops anticipating the journey to Lehigh Valley for the start of the Philadelphia Eagles training camp, I can’t help but wonder, as most beat writers and blogs are doing, what the bigger position battles are to keep an eye on. Who starts at safety? What linebackers will make the grade and be starters for the 2012 season? The list is seemingly endless.
In my quest...
By Len PasquarelliThe Sports Xchange Seven-year veteran safety O.J. Atogwe, added this week by Philadelphia, balked at suggestions his best football is behind him. Still, Atogwe, 31, hasn't been as productive in recent seasons, and there is a reason (or at least a perception) why the Eagles will represent his third team in three seasons. That said, Philly coaches still feel...

But Vick lost everything following his 2007 arrest on dog fighting charges, for which he served 18 months in federal prison. Everyone who follows professional football has [...]
