Watching the Philadelphia Eagles play football last season must not have been brutal enough.
Zach Berman (@ZBerm) of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the Eagles will be raising ticket prices for the first time since 2009.
The ticket pricing will be raised from the $70-95 range to about $75-105.
Berman also noted that the Eagles ranked 11th in ticket pricing in the NFL last season, but had the lowest out of the NFC East teams.
Eagles President Don Smolinski sent out this letter to the team's season ticket holders, "We have made some dramatic changes this offseason, including the hiring of Coach Chip Kelly. But one thing that hasn't changed - and Coach Kelly appreciates this - is that the passion [the fans] display and the support [the fans] provide with [their] loyalty to [the] Eagles makes this a special place to play football."
If you though that the drama surrounding the Eagles organization would finally come to an end with the departure of Andy Reid, then you are in for a surprise. Look forward to another eventful season for the Eagles. But one last word of advice: Maybe try to eat dinner at home before coming to a game in order to make up for the extra money that you will spend.

Wing Bowl, the annual day of chicken wing-eating gluttony in Philadelphia, happened this morning at the Wells Fargo Center. James ‘The Bear’ McDonald of Granby, Conn. won the 21st edition of the event by eating 287 wings, knocking out hometown favorite Jonathan Super Squibb. As always, the real show was in the seats of the sold-out arena, where fans began drinking as early as...
Tim MacManus of Birds 24/7 expects to see the Eagles to find another tight end at some point during the offseason.

Celek, 28, signed an eight-year deal worth $34.01 million...

In the unending speculation about who will be under center for the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2013 season, several names have been tossed around. Is Mike Vick more likely to stay with the team in Chip Kelly’s spread offense? Will Coach Kelly like what he sees in Nick Foles’ progress?
Who knows, but it sounds like one thing Kelly will want to do is reunite with a...
