Some NFL players are forced to make a difficult personal decision about attending the birth of their child if it coincides with a regular-season game.
Not Darryl Tapp.
The Philadelphia Eagles defensive end received the blessing of head coach Andy Reid to miss last Monday night's 28-13 loss to New Orleans. Tapp instead stayed in the hospital with his wife Tiffany, a fitness instructor and competitive body-builder, as she gave birth to the couple's first child, Taylor Nicole. Tapp will return to his rotational role as a backup end Sunday in the FOX America's Game of the Week against the visiting Dallas Cowboys (4:25 p.m. ET).
In a question-and-answer session with FOXSports.com, Tapp talked about his decision to skip the Saints game, his family background and how he has forged a seven-year NFL career despite being one of the league's shortest ends at 6-foot-1 and 270 pounds.
Q: How do you describe the whole situation leading into the birth of your daughter?

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, [...]
Mike Vick was asked today by CSN Philly about the incredibly ridiculous rant given by his brother on Twitter yesterday while Mike was playing Monday Night Football, and it caught him by surprise. I find it hard to believe that he didn’t realize that it happened as it spread through the internet quite quickly, but I will say that he handled the question quite well.

I am not quite positive as to what a pretty defense is, but Philadelphia Eagles cornerback, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, claims that is how the defense views their defense. “Everybody looks at us as a pretty defense [and that] guys don’t want … Continue reading →

Last weeks game of the week picking the Dolphins in a close game found me on the short-end of the stick dropping my season record to 5-4. Turning it around and taking the hard route my pick this week, Cowboys 24- Eagles 13. Yes “The Boys” stink and the Eagles, well they are dysfunctional.
