Nnamdi Asomugha was brought to the Philadelphia Eagles organization when they signed him to a five-yard, $60 million dollar contract when he took to free agency.It bolstered an already potent defensive backfield as Asomugha was expected to be the lock-down corner on opponents’ top receivers, but that didn’t happen in 2011 and isn’t happening in 2012.Asomugha continues to be targeted by opposing quarterbacks this season and was beat by Antonio Brown for a touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he was unable to hold onto the ball.Week after week, Asomugha isn’t living up to the lofty expectations set for him and the Eagles.Even former Eagles linebacker Seth Joyner piped in on the situation.… Read more

Another Eagles game is in the books, and so is another close outcome. However, the Eagles ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard this game.For the first time this season, the Eagles came into the game as an underdog. Despite being the dogs, I still felt this was a very winnable game for the Birds.It’s hard to win a football game when you don’t protect the football though...
The turnovers continue for Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick and at some point, you must raise the question as to whether or not this will be his last season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Yes, Vick is an exciting, dynamic player, but his reckless ball control issues are not stopping and most likely cost Philadelphia the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Yes, the Eagles...
The explanation is pretty simple to me, he doesn’t secure the ball properly when he runs. It is one thing to fumble when you get hit from the blind side or in the process of passing, but what Vick has never learned in his ten years in the league is how to protect the ball when he is running. Here is what Vick had to say courtesy of Pro Football Talk. “I wish I could tell you...
Update to the previous post: Within minutes after my initial post about the show this morning, something came up that I now cannot be available, so you have my apologies. However, starting 2 weeks from today, the plan is to do a weekly talk show.
Feel like talking about Philadelphia Eagles football? About the NFL in general? Or perhaps you want some fantasy football advice...
While most of the Philadelphia Eagles’ players
who entered the week banged up will be able to suit up today against the
Pittsburgh Steelers, linebacker Akeem Jordan has been ruled out.
Jordan is dealing with a hamstring injury and
will be replaced in the Eagles’ lineup by Jamar Chaney.
Defensive tackle Derek Landri, safety Colt
Anderson and offensive...
Shortly after every Eagles loss, the debate begins about who’s at fault. Usually the most likely suspects are Andy Reid or Michael Vick. Both have track records for making decisions that cause most of us to wonder… ‘what the hell were you thinking?’Reid had one of those moments yesterday as the Eagles were driving the ball down the field in an uncharacteristic, 17 play, 79...

Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles were on the wrong side of another 2-point game, this time against the Pittsburgh Steelers, losing 16-14 on a last second field goal.
For the 4th time in 5 games, the Eagles were involved in a game that came down to the wire and decided by 2 points or less. The previous 3 times the Eagles prevailed, but...
Coming into the season, Jim Washburn said if the defensive line didn't get 50 sacks, he should be fired. Unless things change, he might come back to regret those words.
Through 5 games the defensive line has only 7 sacks, putting them on pace for just 22 on the season- less than half of the lofty prediction by Washburn.
The Eagles have not recorded a sack in 2 games and while...
Ben Roethlisberger getting sucked into the ground? I don’t mind.
If it were to happen, the Eagles would of course wind up safely where Hines Ward lands in the clip.
A girl can dream.

PITTSBURGH -- At some point, the Philadelphia Eagles' high-wire act to start the season was going to come crashing down. It was only fitting that it came at the hands of another comeback artist. Ben Roethlisberger engineered a game-winning drive that ended with Shaun Suisham's 34-yard field goal as time expired, and the Steelers edged the Eagles 16-14 Sunday at Heinz Field...
The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Philadelphia Eagles 16-14 on Sunday and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon.
Nice bracket coverage on the early deep pass Jeremy Maclin by both Ike Taylor and Ryan Clark. The defense had the Eagles in a 3rd and long, but Jason Avant moves the chains after he is passed off from James Harrison to Cortez...
