The joys of being Super Bowl champions are seemingly neverending. The knowledge that you are the best in the game and your hard work and talent have gotten you the highly coveted Lombardi trophy. For a year your team’s named is referred to as the “World Champion Team XYZ.”  You get to bask in the privilege of having your accomplishment honored by the President of the United States of America. Of course, we wouldn’t know anything about this as Eagles fans. And it hurts like hell. Seeing The Team That Won’t Be Named north of us on I-95 have the opportunity to meet and joke around with President Barack Obama on Friday over their accomplishment in February was maddening.  I lept up to turn off the TV at the sight of them at the White House with their ear-to-ear grins even though the remote control was right next to me. Slamming a button on a remote just doesn’t have the same, satisfying feeling. Yeah, Philadelphia Eagles fans have a huge chip on our shoulders until we can cross the hurd...

Philadelphia Eagles: Joe Banner shown the door

The Philadelphia Eagles announced today that Joe Banner would no longer serve as president of the team. The decision, while not shocking, is peculiar because of the fact that training camp is just over six weeks away. Why was this move made now? What led Jeffrey Lurie to dismiss his long time friend? These are all valid questions that I don’t think we will ever know the true answers...

The 6-foot, 230-pound Brown ran for 136 yards and a touchdown last season while backing up LeSean McCoy with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Andy Reid Says Give Donovan McNabb a Chance

When 13-year Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid said he would recommend free agent quarterback Donovan McNabb to other NFL teams on May 15, what would be a better ringing endorsement? Not convinced?

Good and Bad Can Come From Banner’s Stepping Down

As the shock of the news of Joe Banner’s stepping down as Philadelphia Eagles President wears off, it leaves me with several thoughts about the whole thing. As with most things, I try to see the situation from both sides. As far as I can see, there is good and bad that can come of this. From an Eagles PR standpoint, this could be a really good thing. Joe Banner was a lightning...

Chargers sign Ronnie Brown

There’s been talk of them doing so since the draft, but the Chargers signed a veteran running back today, signing Ronnie Brown, 31 in December, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles. This signing is hardly an indictment against Ryan Mathews, who the coaching staff has been talking up as a feature back all offseason.
