Found May 17, 2013 on Sports by Colin:
“Noticeably bigger,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reports Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is “enthused about the offense” that new head coach Chip Kelly has instituted.

Brandon Graham, Trent Cole may have a hard time with Chip Kelly’s 3-4 defense

Trent Cole and has been one of the NFL’s best pass rushers over the course of his career and now he’ll be an outside linebacker in the Eagles new 3-4 defense under new head coach Chip Kelly. Cole will now have to learn how to drop back into pass coverage and read opposing offenses a lot more.  I can’t see this change as a good thing. The same goes for Brandon Graham, who...

Donovan McNabb Deserves to Have His Number Retired by the Philadelphia Eagles

Boy, talk about a story that shouldn’t drum up any controversy but somehow has. Donovan McNabb is quite simply one of the best quarterbacks to play in the last twenty years. His resume speaks for itself, but somehow, I don’t think many fans realize or take the time to look at where he stands next to some of the all-time greats.
