Thanks to Matt Bowen (former NFL safety) for bailing me out today...I was knocking my head against a wall on a story I was researching about the Cleveland Browns' version of Eagles Eye... it's a version of our own Bored called Orange and Brown Report, and it features a guy who fancies himself the voice of reason akin to the leader of our Eagles Bored, the esteemed GK Brizer... but he is a mere imitation who goes by the name Bo Davis, aka "The Menacing Mongrel"...I ran into problems of permission slips and publication releases...such is life... But I'll pursue the devil in the details to bring you the story later this week...The good news is Matt Bowen came to the rescue...Matt Bowen is retired from football now but writes a syndicated column for the Chicago Tribune and the National Football Post.com. He recently added "Livefyre" to his NFP blurbs, too, which is one of the things we have in common, and which means when you log on to his posts you can ...

In the 4th round of the 2012 draft, with the 123rd overall selection the Philadelphia Eagles picked Brandon Boykin, a 5-9, 182 corner from Georgia.
Boykin is a tremendously versatile athlete and the Eagles were widely hailed for the selection, including the fact that the pickup was a tremendous value. NFL.com’s Bucky Brooks calls Boykin a “multidimensional weapon,” an intriguing...

Kendricks was the 46th overall pick in last month’s draft. Head coach Andy Reid says that Kendricks will play as strongside...
Being the quarterback, it goes without saying that Michael Vick will be the biggest key to success for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012. However, he is also surrounded by the best supporting cast on offense during the Andy Reid era.
Players like DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, LeSean McCoy and Brent Celek all make life easier on a quarterback and Vick needs to...
Time is a funny thing. If you talked to any Eagles fan between the time the lockout ended and the season began, there was no more optimistic fan group. The team was “all in” and the season was Super Bowl or bust.
If you talked to those same fans between September and February you would have gotten the exact opposite reaction. It was time for Andy Reid to go. Michael...

According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Philadelphia Eagles have signed second round pick and former Cal linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a four-year deal.
Kendricks has a chance at competing for a starting spot at linebacker, after last season’s horrific play on defense.
Kendricks racked up 98 tackles, 3 sacks and 2 interceptions last season at Cal.
Happened a little bit ago, but new to me: Eagles offensive lineman Danny Watkins bought his own fire engine, fulfilling the dreams of boys ages 4-7 the world over. Watkins then filmed himself joyriding the truck with the siren running. Even though Watkins has been a occasional firefighter since he was 16, I’m not sure how it’s legal to do that, though I suspect it probably isn’t...

Kendricks was the 46th overall pick and agreed to his...
