Found May 25, 2012 on Eagles Addict:
Philadelphia Eagles second-year safety Jaiquawn Jarrett has to prove himself on the field this year.  In order to fight his way into a starting role, he also may be faced with the task of overcoming a strong bond that is forging between Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman. If the catch-phrase for the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles is “team chemistry”, that’s exactly what may be working against Jarrett in his bid for a starting role. Photo: eaglesearlybird.com If you happened to have read Jonathan Tamari’s article about the Eagles’ safeties, you may have noticed this part: As a pass flew in, Allen reached with his left hand, and swatted the ball to the ground. Fellow safety Kurt Coleman was waiting to congratulate him. Crouching, they slapped hands low four times – Allen swinging right, left, right, left – then each swung an arm overhead, connecting at the inside of their elbows. And this part: “Kurt’s one of my good friends and we just feel good back there together,” Allen said Wednesday after th...

Demetress Bell confident, getting comfortable with new Eagles teammates

The offseason for the Philadelphia Eagles in March was quiet, calm, and everything was going well. Until news that Pro Bowl LT Jason Peters had ruptured his Achilles, that is. Philadelphia’s offensive line was set to finally have continuity in 2012, which would have served to strengthen the foundation laid in 2011 . Peters and the rest of the o-line were no small part of what led...

Report: Vick event sparks backlash

A seemingly innocuous visit from Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick caused such a backlash for a Toyota dealership in Henderson, Nev., that it was forced to shut down the promotional page on its website. Vick, who was convicted of dogfighting charges in 2007, was in town for a youth football camp and stopped by the dealership to sign autographs and meet with fans Friday...

How will Eagles’ linebackers line up this season?

There might not have been a more publicly shamed group than the Eagles’ linebackers last year. Poor linebacker play became the poster child for the failure of the so called “Dream Team” last year as the Eagles, widely projected to win 12-13 games, won 8 and missed the playoffs. The Eagles, who have always notoriously devalued the linebacker position, have spent a lot of focus...

Eagles' Hanson: Every man for himself in CB competition

PHILADELPHIA -- With his 31st birthday fast approaching, Eagles cornerback Joselio Hanson has been promised nothing other than a chance to win the job he has held for the better part of the last six years. Signed out of NFL Europe in 2006, the 5-9, 185-pound Hanson has been one of the league's better nickel corners the last six years. But he heads into the spring OTAs needing...

The Eagles are primed for a bounce back year but title run is on Vick’s shoulders

Want one team that missed the playoffs last year but is bound to crack the postseason in 2012? Look no further than the Philadelphia Eagles. After opening their checkbook last season for free agents Nnamdi Asomugha, Jason Babin, Cullen Jenkins and Ronnie Brown, a lot of pundits just assumed that the Eagles would win the NFC East. But the team lost four of its first five games and...

People Threaten To Beat Up Michael Vick Over His Youth Football Sponsorship

While in Nevada -- for a youth football camp -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick caused a stir when he was seen at a auto dealership signing autographs and taking photos for fans. During the event, fans lashed out at the NFL star (via the dealership Facebook page).According to Las Vegas Sun, fans took to the Findlay Toyota's Facebook page to call Vick a "dog...

Philadelphia Eagles Fantasy Football Projections

QB Michael Vick (Philadelphia) I’m projecting a down year across the board for Vick once again. He proved last year that his performance against Washington in 2010 was a fluke. I expect him to regress back to close to typical Atlanta passing stats, where he never went over 3000 yards passing, only once threw more than 16 touchdowns and averaged 13 interceptions per game from 2004...

Balancing optimism with the mundane in Eagles' voluntary OTA's...

Our own commentator emeritus GK Brizer says it best--- what you can conclude about a team's prospects for a new season based on what happens in voluntary OTA's amounts to just about nothing...After all, it's a controlled environment with no real oppositional contact and a lot of feel-good-about-ourselves emotion in play.Still, you can get a general feel for the willingness...
