Found September 04, 2013 on Eagles Addict:
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...

Here’s video of the fight between Riley Cooper and Cary Williams

Earlier we told you about that Riley Cooper and Cary Williams got into a scuffle on Thursday. And there’s video of the scuffle.

Will Chip Kelly go for 2 all the time with Philadelphia Eagles?

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...

Eagles CB Cary Williams & wr Riley Cooper get into a scuffle at practice

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...

Riley Cooper’s slur still hits, still hurts

“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...
