Found July 31, 2012 on Eagles Addict:
On July 30th, yours truly visited the Philadelphia Eagles training camp as a member of the media.  I’ve been to camp numerous times before, but this was my first experience with media credentials. Therefore, I decided to go to both the morning walk-through practice as well as the afternoon practice.  Being that I was a “newbie”, my plan was to just sit back and observe not only the practices, but what the other members of the media did. To be honest, I had no idea what to expect in attending camp in this manner. Thankfully, what I found was that everyone I spoke to was nice, helpful and informative.  This goes for several Philadelphia Eagles employees, other media members and the lone player I chatted with. Here are some of my experiences along with some notes and observations of both practices… Morning Walkthrough and Learning the Lay of the Land On the practice fields, there are defined areas where the media is allowed.  However, there is also one area that is smack-dab in the mid...

Eagles' Babin out 2-3 weeks with muscle tear

An MRI exam revealed Babin has a second-degree strain, which occurred Saturday during a one-on-one pass-rushing drill against right tackle Todd Herremans.

Crazy Day Off for Eagles... back to work Wednesday...

To be honest not really a day off, as teammates and coaches were in meetings all day... but a day off in the sense it gives guys 24 hours to assess their sore bodies and put together a plan to avoid unnecessary pain today...Too bad that notion does not apply to WR Ron Johnson, who was unceremoniously waived by the team with a relatively paltry injury settlement of $60,000 for the...

The lost time in training camp is a disappointment...

Fantasy Football: 2012 Running Back Tiers

Tier 1: The Elite 1. Arian Foster 2. LeSean McCoy 3. Ray Rice Who I want the most: LeSean McCoy. I love Arian Foster. I love Ray Rice. But like last year, I really love LeSean McCoy. And after these guys, well, let's just say the running backs are a crap-shoot. These are hands down the elite, the most proven, and the closest to a surefire running back you will get this...
