Found May 22, 2012 on Eagles Eye:
I had forgotten how much fun OTA coverage can be for Eagles fans. We didn't get any OTA's or minicamps last year either...and we missed out on a lot. The NFL should realize by now it must at all reasonable cost avoid interruption of year-round events and coverage. There's too much fan interest to risk alienating it. For now, the league is getting a pass from fans on last year's lockout and work stoppage...just don't let it happen again.A bit of the outdoor scene at yesterday's voluntary OTA minicamp at NovaCare Complex in Philly...The thing that struck me most about being away from the computer for most of the day was how much live commentary on the OTA's I was missing here... thanks to relays by Kenny, Boner, Blas, Spiffo, JB and a host of other friends who were watching live reports from PE.com and also forwarding tweets from Geoff Mosher and Jeff McLane...Man, this Twitter thing becomes more meaningful when an inside reporter can give instant descripti...

Demetress Bell confident, getting comfortable with new Eagles teammates

The offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles in March was quiet, calm, and everything was going well. Until news that Pro Bowl LT Jason Peters had ruptured his Achilles, that is. Philadelphia’s offensive line was set to finally have continuity in 2012, which would have served to strengthen the foundation laid in 2011 . Peters and the rest of the o-line were no small part of what led...

Diamonds in the rough: 2012 NFL rookies that may surprise

Since the completion of the 2012 NFL Draft and spring rookie workouts, we’ve heard a lot of buzz about how the new acquisitions look, sound, feel, and possibly even smell.

2012 Eagles Cheerleader Bikini Shoot In Bahamas

How we let this one slip by is mind boggling. Of course the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders were in the Bahamas earlier this month to shoot the team’s bikini calendar. Guess we were busy staring at Cowboys cheerleader asses. Anyway, this one looks like your normal shoot. Sand, water, chicks with giant boobs, surf, sun, blah, blah, blah. Sorry, ladies, it’s going to take a better...

Eagles’ Brandon Graham: “Right now I’m a bust”

Getty Images Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham told the media on Tuesday that he’s a “bust,” and the criticism that he’s received has motivated him to prove people wrong.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham admits that he is a draft bust

Since the Eagles drafted him with the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, defensive end Brandon Graham has been hampered by injuries. If you consider 16 tackles and three sacks in two seasons contributing, I guess you could argue that he has been an asset for the Eagles. Otherwise, he has been a major disappointment. Fortunately for Eagles fans, Graham seems to embrace being...

Eagles' Jackson ready to lead, be accountable

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson isn't focused on the kind of improvement most players are in the typical NFL offseason program. Signed to a five-year contract extension in March, Jackson won't have to deal with the distractions he faced a year ago when he held out of training camp in a contract standoff with the Eagles. In fact, the newly minted receiver wants to reciprocate...

Eagles’ Brandon Graham in excellent physical condition

The Eagles took Brandon Graham 13th overall in the 2010 NFL Draft, a pick that has been widely criticized since, especially since the divisional rival New York Giants selected Jason Pierre-Paul 2 picks later. However, Graham’s struggles so far have not exactly been the Eagles’ fault or anything they could have foreseen. Graham has had a lot of issues with injuries in his first...

Set to erase 2011, eager Eagles get back to work
