Tweet Per a report from Philly.com, an attendant responsible for watching Philadelphia Eagles players’ cars has been accused of stealing over $225,000 from offensive lineman Todd Herremans personal bank account. Robert Von Ryan, 37, of Philadelphia, was charged with bank fraud. According to federal prosecutors, Von Ryan entered the vehicle of an Eagle identified as “T.H.” From the car, he took documents that contained the player’s checking account number. Using the number, Von Ryan transfered $225,034.52 from Herremans’ UBS checking account to his own, said U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger. The transfers occured between 2009 and 2012. According to the report, Von Ryan was a subcontractor and not a direct employee of the team. If convicted, he faces up to a 30 year sentence and a fine of $1 million. Moral of the story? Never leave banking information laying around in your car, whether you’re a multi-millionaire or rolling around with just hundreds in your bank account. This could happen to anyone. -ALR

Drake the kind of guy who could be surrounded by a room full of chicks and make that facial expression.
Drake was in Philly Saturday night, and ran into Laura Roberts, the fiance of Eagles safety Kurt Coleman. Roberts was celebrating her bacherlotte party when Drake just happened to walk on by.
The rest is all in his expression.

Forbes has released its latest poll of the most disliked players in the NFL once again. While you might think that time would heal some wounds for people when it comes to Michael Vick--it hasn't. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback is still the most hated man in the NFL (than again he did bank roll a dog fighting ring so I understand).
What may be surprising is who came in...
Eagles Photos Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will take the first-team reps in practice on Tuesday, says offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. “Mike will be out here taking the first-team reps,” Shurmur said. “He’ll be out there practicing and taking the reps. I wouldn’t encourage you to assume anything. Coach (Kelly) has talked about it —
The performance by Nick Foles and the offense in the loss to the Cowboys was disappointing to say the least. The thing that may be the most disappointing is that they performed that way and the defense played very well. Dallas had the second highest scoring offense coming into Sunday and the Eagles defense only allowed 17 points.
After allowing nearly 35 points a game through their...

You are hosting the 1-6 Giants in your own backyard (albeit no home-field advantage based upon recent history), your two most proven QB's are gimpy at best, and you are headed into a Bye week after the game...

How is it again that the Linc came to be cursed? Anyone got a theory?
I’m thinking it’s time to take drastic measures, like maybe sacrificing a goat or something. Plus, then, tasty goat (well, depending on your religious persuasion).

Last week: 22 (+0)
This week, Nick Foles struggled and got hurt and Matt Barkley absolutely sucked. And just like that, Michael Vick’s hamstring is magically better. Foles was awful before his injury, completing 11 of 29 for 80 yards, but Barkley was somehow even worse. He completed 11 of 20 for 129 yards, but he also threw 3 picks. Vick isn’t great either so this...
