It's Media Day for SB47 participants in New Orleans, which usually means 30 other teams in the league are scrambling to generate any kind of positive buzz they can for their own organizations.
News items are rolling in on the Eagles as the organizational puzzle is gradually being solved. This is no time for me to try to be clever; I'll just lay them out there for the Bored like a buffet at Brizer's Super Bowl party....
Eagles hire Virginia's OC Bill Lazor as QB coach...
Bill Lazor, who was the offensive coordinator at the University of Virginia, has been hired by Chip Kelly to join the Philadelphia Eagles' coaching staff according to Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com.
Lazor has been the offensive coordinator at Virginia since 2010, but has plenty of NFL experience prior to his move to the college game. Lazor coached in the NFL from 2001-2009, with all of his work coming on the offensive side of the ball. He was the quarte...

NewsTags: Michael VickPhiladelphia EaglesOn Wednesday, John Gonzalez of CSNPhilly.com wrote a column where he presented a case for the Philadelphia Eagles to retain quarterback Michael Vick, and give him one more shot as the team’s starting quarterback.
In the name of sanity, I can’t imagine why the Eagles, Gonzalez, or anyone capable of rational...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Philadelphia Eagles aren’t worried about releasing quarterback Michael Vick before his February 6th roster bonus kicks in. The bonus will guarantee him $3 million of his $16.5 million 2013 salary. Vick’s contract likely won’t be resolved by then.
New coach Chip Kelly is evaluating the situation and how Vick fits in his spread...
Much has been made of the Eagles having to pay Michael Vick a $3 million guaranteed bonus if he was on the roster 3 days after the Super Bowl.
Many assumed because of such a high number that it would be a forgone conclusion that Vick would be released by next week.
The Star Ledger via Jason La Canfora says not so fast. La Canfora is reporting that Vick may well indeed receive that...
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that sources have informed him that the Eagles are “unlikely” to make a decision regarding Michael Vick‘s future with the team before February 6.
This just happens to be the date in which the $3 million of Vick’s $15.5 million salary will become guaranteed.
La Canfora’s sources have mentioned that Vick is not willing to take a...
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has a clause in
his contract in which he’ll be guaranteed $3 million for next year on Feb. 6.
Still, the Eagles aren’t in a hurry to make a decision on Vick’s future, as the
guaranteed money isn’t a major issue for the team. For this reason, Vick’s situation
and Philadelphia’s ultimate decision on the veteran doesn’t appear...
Comcast Philly reports that the Eagles are looking into acquiring Baltimore QB Dennis Dixon after the season.Fantasy Spin:Dixon played under Chip Kelly at Oregon, so it makes sense that he'd go to the Eagles. With that said, Dixon hasn't thrown a pass in the NFL since 2010 and has only started two NFL games since entering the league in 2008. We doubt he'd have much of...
I remember when Media Day at the Super Bowl used to be three or four interview tables covered by one TV network, a few newspaper reporters and maybe two local radio stations. Now it has turned into a monstrosity. It's bigger than an Olympic Village..well, almost! Telemundo, Japanese TV, Al Jazeera...they're all there.

QuarterbacksTags: Chip KellyMichael VickNick FolesPhiladelphia EaglesChip Kelly has been head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles for a couple of weeks now, but still nobody knows who is going to be the Eagles quarterback. Kelly has had nothing but good things to say about both Nick Foles and Michael Vick, but he hasn’t shown us which one...
1. Quarterback The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to end the Michael Vick era this offseason. And while Nick Foles may be worth developing, he isn’t an immediate answer to their issues at quarterback. If they’re interested in keeping Foles, then signing a veteran makes the most sense. But if the new regime isn’t interested in Foles, Geno Smith may be a first-round option...
Philadelphia Eagles fans love Quarterback controversies, and there's no way around that. No one knows why, we just do. It might be because we're just infatuated with the idea of change, which would explain fans tracking Gus Bradley's plane across the country, hopping on the "Gus Bus" and then subsequently realizing they actually have no idea who he...
Philadelphia eagles running back LeSean McCoy is sorry for his obscene weekend Twitter exchange with the mother of his baby son.
McCoy, 24, released a statement Monday and admitted his account was not hacked, which he claimed it to
Philadelphia Eagles and new coach Chip Kelly are expected to
reach out to Baltimore Ravens practice squad quarterback Dennis Dixon about
joining their team following the Super Bowl, according to Geoff Mosher of CSN
There are strong indications that Kelly won’t waste too much
time after the Super Bowl before reaching out to Ravens practice squad
quarterback Denis Dixon and...
