The Philadelphia Eagles started off their 2012 campaign with a win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Not the prettiest performance ever, but a win nonetheless. It was a game that was vital for both the team and head coach Andy Reid, who had buried his son only one day earlier.
Reid was ecstatic at the end, after Alex Henery booted a 51-yarder that essentially ended the game.
Coach was unbelievably happy (for good reason) especially for a preseason game. That said, there were more than a handful of things that went wrong for the birds, on both offense and defense.
Some players broke out, while some (Kafka) broke hands. Lets see who will be ready to play Monday August 20th when the birds take on the New England Patriots in Foxborough.
QB Nick Foles
We'll get the most obvious player (in my opinion) out of the way, Nick Foles, who had an electric game last week. I myself was originally born in Philadelphia, PA, but then moved out to Tucson, AZ, when I was 8 years old. I hav...
BEST OF MAXIM
Former Eagles offensive lineman Tra Thomas retired as a Philadelphia Eagle on Thursday. Words simply weren’t enough to express how much the honor meant to Thomas, who expressed deep appreciation for the team and his former coaches Andy Reid and Juan Castillo. There is no point in telling you what Thomas said. You just need to watch.
Philadelphia made the right move on this one...
It ended at Lehigh on Tuesday with Andy Reid circling the perimeter of the field and high-fiving all the fans within reach...Next up is a serious preparation at NovaCare in Philly for the New England Patriots... and the inevitable toll of the bell for the next round of cuts...The plan is to use the Patriots game as the main preseason tuneup for the regulars, who will go at least...
We are concerned about this team...which as our Gatekeeper Brizer has pointed out, is an entirely different issue from "worried"...We have issues. Not entirely happy with the LB or OL picture at this juncture..not sold on the defensive secondary depth, either... and not crazy about the QB mix...But Andy Reid seems to like what he sees...Before breaking camp on Tuesday...
The 2012-13 Eagles season has begun like nearly every other season, with an uninspiring pre-season game. The aftermath of Thursday’s game I am finding to be quite amusing. (That would be the callers to talk radio already predicting DOOM). Not that the Eagles first-string performance was amusing offensively or defensively but what were you expecting? Offensively, the 6 plays...
Tuesday marked the last day at Lehigh University for the Philadelphia Eagles team in 2012. Since late July, we’ve learned a lot about this team and the possibilities for the upcoming season. Here’s a look at five things we can takeaway from Lehigh.
1. Tough camp, tough team: Head coach Andy Reid told his team during OTAs to except a tough training camp. He delivered on his...
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick says head coach Andy Reid has filled a void in his life and has become a father figure to him.
“I can say that while coach has been in my presence, while I’ve been here, he’s been a sort of father figure,” Vick told NFL.com, as the Eagles went through their final day at Lehigh. “(As) a father figure, you’re mentoring...
Week Two recap of Hard Knocks: Joe Philbin is dealing with issue after issue. First, it was the death of Andy Reid’s son and then it was Chad Johnson allegedly head-butting his wife. For us, the real drama was whether Lauren Tannehill would finally be in a bikini on South Beach. No dice. However, there was a moneyshot of Lauren and Jake Long’s wife, Jackie, at the Dolphins first...
For the first time in a long time, the Miami Dolphins were the center of the NFL universe as everyone was excited to tune into this week’s Hard Knocks episode.
The buildup of HBO informing everywhere that they would be covering Chad Johnson's release had the show set up for one of its largest ratings in the shows history. The show got off to a little bit of a surprising...
HBO’s Hard Knocks Training Camp with the Miami Dolphins second episode was about as emotional as any episode in the series’ history. There were three specific storylines from the episode that highlighted the feelings among the players and coaches alike that encompassed the struggles of a grueling NFL training camp.
1. Joe Philbin’s level head
Joe Philbin is unflappable, that’s...
