Found June 17, 2013 on Football Nation:
My, oh my, how the NFL off season flies.It seems like just yesterday, Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco was hoisting the Lombardi trophy, Ravens' legend Ray Lewis said his goodbyes and the staff in Baltimore decided to get rid of the half the defense. Soon after, Roger Goodell dug himself even deeper with the fan base (and running backs for that matter), and eight new head coaching vacancies were filled in a matter of weeks.Well, already we're months past the Draft, and we're even through with OTAs. With that, training camp is literally right around the corner and that means the 2013 season is finally starting. Honestly though, does it ever end?Some may hate this part of the season, considering there still isn't any football being played.

The only thing in Philadelphia affecting the team is, DeSeason Jackson’s mouth. Why won’t he give Chip Kelly time?

Chip Kelly knew it was going to be tough coming into the NFL with his offensive system. The last thing he needs is a guy like DeSeason Jackson running his mouth about naming the starting quarterback before camp even gets under way.

Buddy Ryan One of Four Eagles Coaches That Made NFL “Worst” Lists

Nobody knows the torture of suffering through bad head coaches quite like Philadelphia Eagles fans.  Hell, there are even some fans who considered the last few years of Andy Reid, the winning-est coach in team history, as cruel and unusual punishment. However, there is no way on earth Andy Reid would or should ever make anybody’s list of worst head coaches in the NFL. Recently...

Arrows Still Point To Michael Vick As The Starter

Fantasy Football Rookie Report: Eagles QB Matt Barkley

I don't think I have kept my love for the Matt Barkley pick a secret since it happened.My belief is that Chip Kelly would not have made the trade up in the fourth round if he wasn't so sure that Barkley would fit into his offense nicely.Everyone knew there would be a quarterback battle in Philadelphia at the end of last season, but now it's a competition between Michael...

The treadmill gave me my 4.2 speed Juan… I’m excited to see what the Eagles’ offense will look like in training camp and during fake games.  Should give us a glimpse of what could be in store.  I have kinda warmed to DeSean at his current ADP and he could be the guy that breaks out in the passing game.  We shall see.

(Photo credit) In 1996, owner Art Modell moved his Cleveland Browns to Baltimore, leaving behind all traces of the former franchise. Brown became purple, “Browns” became “Ravens," and one of the fiercest rivalries in the NFL, Steelers-Browns, became a new-yet-not-new rivalry, Steelers-Ravens.  The...

'Hard Knocks' won't cut the cuts

When the Cincinnati Bengals last appeared on HBO's "Hard Knocks" in 2009, one of the most memorable moments featured a player getting pulled out of bed at 5:30 a.m. so The Turk could deliver the news he was being cut. Such a procedure certainly wouldn't fall under the more "humane" process that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is seeking for how player...
