The Philadelphia Eagles have released Kenny Phillips, the free agent acquisition they thought could help fill black hole at the safety position in 2013. Phillips just could never really get on the field in camp or in the preseason due to one injury or another.
For the past few weeks it’s been a quad injury, but the main issue with Phillips are his knees.
In 2009, Phillips...
Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly have a three down running back in LeSean McCoy, so when he says he’s not concerned about backup RB Bryce Brown’s fumbling issues, it’s not his primary worry. However, if McCoy were to get injured, Kelly’s concern might get heightened quite a bit.
Last week, Chip Kelly officially announced that Michael Vick will be the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles to start the 2013-14 season. This wasn’t exactly a surprise. Vick has had an excellent preseason and is the more experienced player, as well as the bigger locker room presence.
Foles was, undoubtedly disappointed. And of course, some people in the Philadelphia...

Jeff Mclane of the Philadelphia Inquirer believes there is a chance the Eagles cut FS Kenny Phillips.
Come Tuesday, all NFL teams will be forced to trim down their rosters to 75 players total. The Eagles clearly need help at safety next to SS Patrick Chung, however health issues could be Phillips’ down fall in Philly.
Phillips has missed the last two preseason games with the...

First year Philadelphia Eagles Head.Coach Chip Kelly found himself in an enviable position. He needed to pick who his starting quarterback was going to be and both of his options were playing well during the preseason.Prior to the third preseason game he went ahead and picked the veteran, Michael Vick. From the looks of the game against Jacksonville it was a pretty good choice.
It seems as though each week a different Eagles’ player has his wings clipped, having their season cut short, by an ACL injury. As of today, Eagles training camp has reported that four Eagles players will be sidelined this season as a result of ACL injuries; receivers Jeremy Maclin & Arrelious Benn, linebacker Jason Phillips, and third-year backup transitioning outside linebacker...

Tonight in Jacksonville, the Eagles turned the ball over and fell behind early. They made mistakes in special teams and the running game, with promising youngsters Damaris Johnson and Bryce Brown having killer fumbles. The game was on the road, in muggy conditions, and after a perfect punt, they were 99 yards away from paydirt and a win, with their scrubs in. Who cares...
