Andrew Short writes on the Eagles Eye blog that Philadelphia's defense will be better this year, thanks to additions made to the linebacker corps. DeMeco Ryans brings leadership the unit lacked last season. Rookie Mychal Kendricks adds speed. "These young athletic LB’s should be able to play at a high level and match up with anyone, anywhere." Tiger Jones is the leading receiver in the Arena Football League while playing for the Philadelphia Soul. The local pro team noticed his efforts. The Eagles invited Jones to training camp and a chance at a roster spot. Jones (5-11, 195) has 2010 receiving yards and is third in TD receptions in the AFL. He has stopped playing for the Soul to avoid risk of injury. Every dreamer on the Soul understands that. Eagles' co-owners Jeffrey and Christina Weiss Lurie are divorcing. The move will not affect ownership or team operations the Luries told employees in a letter. It's not football news, but it made all the papers in Ph...

Predict the Eagles 2012 Season? No, Thanks.

In this, the longest, most painful stretch of football’s offseason, Philadelphia Eagles fans are looking for any bit of football news to tie them over until the start of training camp (just over two weeks to go!). Sports sites are full of predictions about the upcoming season–of individual players, units, and teams as a whole. It makes complete sense. What better activity to...

LeSean McCoy named a top talent to build around in the NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles are incredibly fortunate to have a talent as good–and as young–as running back LeSean McCoy. The team knows this, and acknowledged it by signing him to a long-term deal this offseason. For all of his success, Shady is only 23 years old (he’ll be 24 in a few days). He was the shining star of the Eagles’ offense in 2011 and will likely just keep getting...

Philadelphia Eagles: How Penalties on 3rd Down Impacted the 2011 Season

As a supplement to my previous article about the Philadelphia Eagles getting back to the basics, I wanted to throw in some penalty statistics that may be of interest…or concern. A reader brought up a point about getting killed with penalties on third-down last year that either kept the opponent’s drive alive, or thwarted our own drive.  Since I can remember that penalties...

Former Louisville Receiver Tiger Jones Signs With The Philadelphia Eagles

Former Louisville wide receiver Anthony “Tiger” Jones has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. Jones was most recently a member of the Philadelphia Soul Arena Football League. Jones has spent the past few years in the AFL, where he’s been one of the top receivers in the league. With the Arena League being in the middle of their season, Jones had to break the news to the organization...

2012 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Eagles TE Brent Celek

Eagles tight end Brent Celek will be a top-10 fantasy option this season and will be a steal for smart fantasy owners. Drafting and finding a quality tight end in fantasy football is always a bit tricky. Fantasy owners must decide if they want to invest an early round selection on a tight end such as the Rob Gronkowski or Jimmy Graham; or use a mid-round selection on players...

Don’t Sleep On: Brent Celek

I'm the runaway steal for TEs this year T...   2011 Recap:  Celek and Vick weren’t on the same page in 2010 and it carried over into 2011.  McNabb and Kolb had shown much love for the TE during their stint as starters, but Vick was looking for the homeruns with D-Jax/Maclin.   In weeks 1-5 he has not found the endzone and was looking like a lost case for fantasy owners...
