As we get ready to start the Chip Kelly era of Philadelphia Eagles football, the QB drama and offense are not what’s of concern. The offense has the talent and coaching skills to compete this year.
Hell, I’m even excited about the apparent improvement to a special teams unit that has been dreadful and uninspiring the past two years.
However, the defense is a different story.
The Eagles’ defense has been a unit in disarray since Jim Johnson passed away. Sean McDermott couldn’t fill Johnson’s big shoes and then there was the whole Juan Castillo debacle followed by the complete collapse under Todd Bowles.
Then you mix in Jim Washburn’s “Wide-Nine” and the questionable relationships he had with the other defensive coaches and it was a recipe for disaster.
The game planning, cohesion and communication on defense has been severely lacking for the past four seasons. Players were questioning the coaching staff and each other. There was no continuity and at times, a severe lack of respec...

Things got a little heated during Philadelphia Eagles practice on Thursday when wide receiver Riley Cooper mixed it up with cornerback Cary Williams. Cooper, of course, had himself a real rough preseason and training camp after footage emerged of him using a racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert (a story tastefully and subtly chronicled […]The post Footage surfaces of Riley Cooper...
Philadelphia eagles coach Chip Kelly's has been known for slow starts when going into a new coaching gig, according to Sam Donnellon of Philly.com. "Work in progress," Kelly has said repeatedly this summer, trying to keep expectations to a realistic level.
Earlier we told you about that Riley Cooper and Cary Williams got into a scuffle on Thursday. And there’s video of the scuffle.
A few things the video shows:
Cary Williams was MAD.
Riley Cooper seemed to stop mid fight as if he wanted no parts of a fight with Williams
Williams clearly wanted all parts of Cooper.
Maybe there’s more to this than just a normal practice fight...
Because of Chip Kelly, being the Oregon Ducks Placekicker was the easiest job in the world. You didn’t have to do a whole lot.
Well, maybe the second easiest job. A weatherman in San Diego just has to show up every day and say “it’s going to be: nice.” CC Lewis Black for that joke.
Chip Kelly was very aggressive in terms of going for it on fourth down and on two-point conversions...
This was bound to happen, and now hopefully it will pull the Eagles together.
Jeff McLane is reporting that Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper and Cary Williams got into a fight at practice this morning.
No word on what started the fight, but we can be certain that the trolls will blame it on Cooper’s use of the N word last month.
Here are some additional details and the video...

When Riley Cooper and Cary Williams got into a fight at Philadelphia Eagles practice on Thursday, Michael Vick stepped in and tried to prevent the situation from escalating. As the video we posted earlier shows, Cooper walked away and looked like he wanted nothing to do with the scrum. Williams, however, seemed furious. Cooper insisted […]
Things can get heated between teammates during a typical NFL practice. But when Eagles cornerback Cary Williams and receiver Riley Cooper got into at practice on Thursday, it took two unlikely figures, receiver DeSean Jackson and QB Mike Vick to step in and get Williams back in line.
Williams was covering the receiver during one-on-one drills. After the play, they stood toe...

Former first-round draft pick Danny Watkins has signed a $555,000, one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins after being cut by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Watkins, a guard, spent two seasons with the Eagles and started 18 games before losing his job early last year. He was a surprise choice with the 23rd overall selection at age 26 when the Eagles made him the oldest first-round pick...
“I will jump that fence and fight every ******, here.”
There is no foreign fuel that conjured Riley Cooper’s words at that Kenny Chesney concert this summer. It wasn’t the warm air. It wasn’t the country music. It wasn’t the alcohol, or the anger, the adrenaline. Tongues can be loosened by such an atmosphere. But ignorance is only released from hearts that contain it...
