Former Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jason Babin has had some time to reflect on his past in Philadelphia since getting cut about a month ago by the team before being claimed off waivers pretty quickly by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Of course, most Americans don’t know that because most Americans know nothing about socialism, and think it’s the same exact thing as Communism. You can thank Ronald Reagan and his propaganda campaigns against socialized medicine for that.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that the Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin “could be a potential trade chip in off-season.“
McLane adds that DeSean Jackson‘s $47 million contract extension makes it unlikely that any team would be willing to trade for him and the fact Maclin is a similar type of receiver could at least be enough for them to shop him around the league...
I thought guard Evan Mathis and kicker Alex Henery might have avoided the shutout... But no, not unless they get into the Pro Bowl as alternates.
It's no big whoop as far as the actual NFC vs. AFC All-Star Game in Hawaii goes. I don't even watch the game. I just watch the pregame features, maybe catch an isolated series of plays if our guys are involved.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is not willing to renegotiate his contract, which pays him $15.5 million next season, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Friday. The Inquirer cited a "source familiar with Vick's thinking" but Vick would not publicly comment. Vick is under contract through 2015 but the team is unlikely to keep Vick for $15.5 million next...

But owner Jeffrey Lurie has said nothing. Lurie...

There is nothing likable about the Philadelphia Eagles. Well, except maybe Andy Reid. I mean, the guy is a walking talking walrus who seems to be a pretty decent dude. But he is about to make an exit stage left, and that means there really isn’t a darn thing to like about that organization. They [...]
