LeSean McCoy, Michael Vick, and the offensive line may be the Philadelphia Eagles’ best defense against Peyton Manning and the Broncos.  The Eagles have the formula on offense that may allow them to pull off a stunning upset on Sunday. Our best defense against Manning? Photo: Getty Images The last time the Broncos lost in the regular season was Week 5 of last season when they fell to Tom Brady and the Patriots.  Many teams lose to Brady and the Pats, but the reason I bring them up is because their offense closest resembles the Eagles’ in terms of philosophy. In that game, the Pats, who ran their up-temp offense, rushed the ball 54 times for 251 yards and scored three times on the ground.  They ran 89 plays to the Broncos’ 66 and won the time of possession 35:49 to 24:11. The other key stat?  The Pats forced three turnovers that day to thwart opportunities for Manning and company. So, how am I comparing Brady and the Pats to what Vick and the Eagles can do?  Like I said, they have th...

Alex Henery Fined $15,750 by the NFL

Eagles kicker Alex Henery is starting to get on thin ice with the Eagles. He failed to recover a fumble on special teams, and he’s missed a field goal in consecutive games for the first time in his career. So it’s not a surprise that Henery wants to give his all now, and is looking to impress the fans – and more importantly the Eagles’ front office – with his effort. In...

The Eagles and Broncos may not huddle the entire game. Week 4 picks.

The Eagles and Broncos give us a match-up of two offensive geniuses.  On one side the greatest QB/Coach in Peyton Manning and the other, Chip Kelly, who is struggling after a fast start week 1.  This game will feature adjustments at the line, no huddles hand signals and who knows what else, buckle up. After a blazing hot 27-5 start to the season, I fell to the earth with a 7...

Eagles fall to Broncos 52-20: Initial Reaction

This one hurt, as the Eagles lost to the Broncos and dropped to 1-3, including three losses to the AFC West. Even though it was an extremely tough matchup for the Eagles on the road, a lot seemed to be in their favor. They were sure to have fresh legs after a 10 day rest, while the Broncos were playing on a short week following their appearance on Monday Night Football. The Broncos...

Referee gets run over by Brandon Boykin while covering a punt

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin was trying to down the ball inside the 5-yard line on a punt when he absolutely blasted this poor referee.  Boykin was concentrating on the ball and never saw him until it was too late for the ref.  The referee got up quickly and was okay, but that didn’t look pretty.  

Can the Philadelphia Eagles keep up with the Denver Broncos?

Can the Eagles D stop Peyton Manning from inflicting too much damage? The Philadelphia Eagles are in Denver to face the Broncos, and it is one of the most challenging games on their schedule. Denver’s #1 ranked offense faces Philly’s #2 offense. Both teams can be fast and explosive, but will Chip Kelly even want his team to work quickly, only to hand over the ball to Peyton Manning...

Dreaming of Streaming Week 4: Advice from Vegas

The King Degenerates in Vegas are sending emergency smoke signals in the form of a preposterous Week 4 over-under. They’ve set the Broncos-Eagles over-under at 58 — a number that simultaneously begs us to jam as many Broncos and Eagles into our lineups as possible, and run far, far away from their defenses. I’ve seen the Denver defense described as a must-play — a top-5 option...

The Matchups: The Birds v. The Broncos

Welcome back! It’s finally Sunday, and this week the Birds are in Denver. Now, if you’ve suffered through the endless cycle of pro-Manning propaganda as I have, you know that the Eagles have no chance. Really. They should not have left PHI. This was an expenditure that Lurie did not have to make. They stand not a chance in this endeavor. Manning is going to throw mad TDs while...

Eagles get ready to go up against Jack Del Rio...

Forget for a moment the challenge of stopping Peyton Manning and his multi-faceted Broncos offense... How will the Eagles overcome the challenge to score more points than Peyton does? This is a loaded question, because the Eagles defense and special teams are allowed to score points, too. But when you get right down to it, the Eagles offense will be relied upon to put dozens...
