Oh, Eagles. The Philadelphia football team may suddenly be the laughingstock of the NFL, but gosh-darnit, at least they're having fun out there.
Trailing 28-13 with a minute left in the third quarter, the Eagles tried to hide Riley Cooper by having him lay down on the Superdome turf. Cooper jumped up, returner Brandon Boykin tried to throw a backwards pass to him and Cooper took it all the way back for a touchdown. It all worked so well. Until everyone noticed the yellow flag lying on the turf — just as Cooper had done moments earlier.
In 2012-Eagles' fashion, Boykin's pass didn't travel backwards, it traveled forward and the entire play was nullified. Perhaps the Eagles were hiding that play -- much like they were hiding Cooper -- all season, waiting for the perfect time to call it. This was that time, but it failed. Much like the 2012 Eagles have done a lot lately.
Now if there were a way to blame this on Michael Vick somehow. Perhaps Vick taught Boykin how to throw backwards. Yes, that will do.

If not for the fact that it was ruled an illegal forward pass, the trick play Riley Cooper and the Philadelphia Eagles nearly pulled off during their game against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night would have been one of the most unique in NFL history. As you can see from the video below, [...]
Just how bad are the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles? If not for a key lucky break in each of their three wins, Andy Reid’s team would be 0-8 right now.
Just a mere two weeks ago, I posted an article titled 10 Reasons to Remain Optimistic About the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2012 Season. The Eagles were 3-3 at the time and my thought pattern was that you could see the Eagles’ record...
Marcus Vick went off on the Philadelphia Eagles over Twitter while watching “Monday Night Football,” demanding that the team should trade his brother, Michael.
“Please trade my brother. We requesting out of Philly!!!! Please please please……” he wrote on Twitter during Monday’s game between the New Orleans Saints and Eagles before deleting the tweet.
That tweet was...
Eight games into the season is probably far too early start talking about a replacement head coach for a team that still has their head coach. In most cases it is. In the Eagles case, it is pretty much a forgone conclusion that Andy Reid will get the boot eventually. The team has lost four in a row and is getting worse by the second. Experts around Philly know it’s only a matter...

The Philadelphia Eagles have announced big news today...just might not be what you were looking for. Just one day after the Eagles were defeated on Monday Night Football, the Eagles have announced that they have extended the general manager. GM Howie Roseman has been given a 4 to 5 year contract extension.
Due to the current state of the team, there has been no official comment...
Another blow for an already injury-riddled offensive line.
Todd Herremans was forced to the sidelines late in the first quarter with a right foot/ankle injury. His return is doubtful.
The veteran tackle was pulling on a LeSean McCoy run to the left side, was tripped and landed awkwardly. He was assisted off the field and after a brief inspection on the trainers table, was carted...

There will be no excuses for the Eagles offense this week.
Andy Reid’s offense is ranked 28th in the league, managing just 17.1 points per game. Through the first six games of the year, the offense has looked painfully inefficient and hopeless. Poor playcalling...
