It's almost Draft time and only hours before the MACH 10 deadline (12 noon Wednesday EST) for Eagles fans to submit their entries. Exciting though it is for us all, for JB "The Sage" and GK Brizer it's also just another rodeo.Past winners of the official MACH 10 challenge have included M. "Fanny" Harris (twice), Leo Pizzini, Brizer himself and JB "The Sage"... But the MACH 10 owes its origin to Brizer's foresight in the early days of Dave Spadaro's "On The Inside" fan gallery at PE.com. Brizer teamed up with JB to anchor the comments section with the sacred charter to "enlighten and entertain" Eagles fans willing to discipline their presumed football knowledge. And starting way back when the Eagles were still relatively new to the internet as a PR medium, these guys are still bringing it, and EEB is lucky to be able to share them with Spadaro's gang.JB "The Sage" (standing) and GK Brizer share some fina...

Asante Samuel has been traded to the Atlanta Falcons for what has been described as an “undisclosed pick” in this year’s draft. The consensus, though not official, is that it’s Atlanta’s sixth-rounder.

The 2012 NFL Draft is upon us, which means that thousands of people will be tuned into hours and hours of speculation and only minutes of actual drafting. For example: “With the first pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select Andrew Luck, quarterback from Stanford University.” It probably took you about four seconds to read that and will take about eight seconds...
Think back to December 1st, 2011, right after the Philadelphia Eagles took a beating at the hands of the hapless Seattle Seahawks, 31-14. Do you remember how you felt?
I do, and the two best words I can use to describe it without turning this into a profanity-laced tirade are angry and disgusted.
That was the Eagles’ fourth loss in a span of five games to drop their record...
It looks like Asante Samuel is going with a new set of feathers next season. The Falcons are "on the verge" of acquiring the four-time Pro Bowl cornerback in exchange for a late-round draft pick, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Samuel has played the last four seasons in Philadelphia after spending his first five seasons in New England. The 31-year-old has been the...
“Can you feel that? Can you feel this that dog-gone beating in your chest? Can you feel what is about to happen out here on this field man?”
That Brian Dawkins pre-game speech given in the huddle to his then Eagles team mates has been recited by my kid to his teammates before just about every game he has played since 2008.
Brian Dawkins inspired him like so many others to...
