NewsTags: Billy DavisBrandon GrahamConnor BarwinPhiladelphia EaglesTrent ColeAlthough there have been a great number of conversations about Trent Coleâ€™s and Brandon Grahamâ€™s ability or inability to drop at the snap of the ball and cover the pass in Billy Davisâ€™ defense, the guy who will be the starter is going to be the guy who can get to the quarterback.

Chip Kelly knew it was going to be tough coming into the NFL with his offensive system. The last thing he needs is a guy like DeSeason Jackson running his mouth about naming the starting quarterback before camp even gets under way. You would think a guy like Jackson would realize Kelly is under enough pressure. The guy has been on the Eagles since 2008. He knows that starting a quarterback...
Mike Missanelli held one of the most controversial interviews in recent history on 97.5 The Fanatic just a couple Fridays ago. He conversed with newly acquired cornerback Cary Williams about the headlines he is making in the Delaware Valley. Middle-aged Philadelphia Eagles fans recall ex-NFL star Ricky Watters making his infamous â€śFor who? For what?â€ť comments very well. Ironically...

I had an opportunity to speak with Gayle Jackson, DeSean Jacksonâ€™s mother, after a private screening of the documentary â€śThe Making of a Fatherâ€™s Dream,â€ť which was released on Fatherâ€™s Day. How did it feel to relive such emotional...
Nobody knows the torture of suffering through bad head coaches quite like Philadelphia Eagles fans.Â Hell, there are even some fans who considered the last few years of Andy Reid, the winning-est coach in team history, as cruel and unusual punishment.
However, there is no way on earth Andy Reid would or should ever make anybodyâ€™s list of worst head coaches in the NFL.
NewsTags: Chip KellyDennis DixonMatt BarkleyMichael VickPhiladelphia EaglesEagles head coach Chip Kelly has gone out of way to make it seem that thereâ€™s a serious chance second-year quarterback Nick Foles could beat out Michael Vick for the starting quarterback position. Â I think thereâ€™s very little chance of that happening...
I don't think I have kept my love for the Matt Barkley pick a secret since it happened.My belief is that Chip Kelly would not have made the trade up in the fourth round if he wasn't so sure that Barkley would fit into his offense nicely.Everyone knew there would be a quarterback battle in Philadelphia at the end of last season, but now it's a competition between Michael...
Nick Fierro is coming up! Here we are in the dregs of the stupid season in the NFL--- the 6 weeks leading up to training camp--- and Nick fires out his greatest column ever for the Allentown Morning Call.
Not all of our readers here are big Nick Fierro fans. Afra and Mothra aren't too fond of his schematic critiques. But I saw something in Nick that was bigger than the technical...
It's too early to tell, since rookieÂ Zach Ertz just became eligible to practice with the Eagles, but apparently some outside sources already like what the Chippah is cooking up with his TE emphasis on offense.
I didn't expect the preseasonÂ "tight end positionalÂ innovations" of the Eagles in 2013 to really make a dent upon theÂ media radar.
But there it...
The treadmill gave me my 4.2 speed Juanâ€¦
Iâ€™m excited to see what the Eaglesâ€™ offense will look like in training camp and during fake games.Â Should give us a glimpse of what could be in store.Â I have kinda warmed to DeSean at his current ADP and he could be the guy that breaks out in the passing game.Â We shall see.
