Ex-Eagle running back Keith Byers was on WIP and suggested that LeSean McCoy was one of the best backs in the league and the Eagles should do more rushing than passing. While many remember Byers block on one of his best friends Pepper Johnson, I remember a Buddy Ryan team that went into Denver and beat the Broncos, heavily depending on Byars. The Eagles won 28-24, as Byers ran for 96 yards and 23 carries, and two touchdowns. Now it might be raining, heavy winds due to the effects of hurricane Sandy and Reid still might pass the ball. Why not keep it close to the breast, give the ball to McCoy all day and see what he can do? The Eagles are 3-3 and you might think the season is on the line for the Eagles and Reid. Maybe not. Matt Ryan is a beast and could tear the Eagles apart. But if the defense get pressure, they could record its first sack since Week 3. If I were new defense coordinator Todd Bowles, the first thing I would do is scrap the Wide 9 and play to his players’ strength. T...

The time for Eagles’ Andy Reid to panic is now

The Philadelphia Eagles longtime Head Coach Andy Reid is slowly coming to the realization that this season will be his last. Andy Reid on the hot seat rumors happen every year, but this season, more than any other season has shown signals from actions and rhetoric that this may be the last. Firstly, Juan Castillo fired during the Bye Week is a move that shows the desperation the...

Where are the Eagles headed the rest of the season? A look at their remaining schedule and the NFC East

The Eagles are an interesting team to follow.  They have enough talent on offense to be very successful, but they are weak on defense.  The biggest criticism I have of the Eagles offense is that they need to call plays that help out their strengths.  I do not understand how McCoy doesn't get 30 carries a game.  That would allow Vick to set-up play action and cut up defenses...

Asante Samuel has a lot of personality issues, and Eagles fans better cheer for him

Cornback Asante Samuel makes his return to Philadelphia this weekend, and he thinks that, for all he's done for fans during the four years he was an Eagle, he deserves a warm welcome. What does he think he is, some sort of Super Bowl Hero? He very well could've been just that, albeit for another team, the New England Patriots. Samuel dropped a game clinching interception...

Rested Eagles shoot for 14-0 after bye under Reid

Whether they're cellar-dwellers or Super Bowl contenders, the Philadelphia Eagles don't lose after a bye. Under coach Andy Reid, the Eagles are 13-0 after a week off since 1999. Stretching that streak to 14 won't be easy, however. The Eagles (3-3) host Atlanta (6-0) on Sunday. ''I think the coaches use the bye to figure out what works and what doesn't, what...

Michael Vick Could Lose Starting Job While Healthy

It would come as no surprise to see Nick Foles take over as the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback should Michael Vick go down with yet another injury.  However, Vick may be replaced while healthy.  The Eagles fell to 3-4 on the season and coach Andy Reid is working on saving his own neck.  The only way to do that would be to save the Eagles' season. According...

Asante Samuel can’t understand why Andy Reid dissed him

Atlanta Falcons cornerback Asante Samuel appeared apoplectic over Andy Reid’s decision to ignore the ex-Eagle during a post-game handshake. Samuel’s Falcons squashed the Eagles 30-17 at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday in front of a disgruntled, comatose, Hurricane Sandy-ready crowd. Following the game, Samuel rambled through an interview and wondered why his former coach...

Blame Reid in 30-17 loss to Falcons at wet Lincoln Financial Field

It’s funny: I am not angry over the 30-17 loss the Eagles suffered to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Well, I am upset that the Falcons scored on their first six possessions and held a 24-7 halftime lead. The Eagles made third-down stops, only to be overturned by penalty. The Eagles could not stop the rain and wind, nor could they stop Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan and the rest...

Falcons beat Eagles to remain NFL's only unbeaten team

PHILADELPHIA - The Atlanta Falcons had to work too hard and too long for some of their earlier victories, and they didn't want the same thing to happen again. So they scored early and often and rolled to a 30-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at rainy, windy Lincoln Financial Field to remain the NFL's only undefeated team. The Eagles had changed defensive...
