Found December 10, 2013 on Eagles Addict:
While Chip Kelly and the 2013 Philadelphia Eagles are in the midst of a playoff run, I thought I’d take a quick sneak peak at some potential free agent targets come the offseason. My philosophy for building a team is simple: you build in the draft and supplement your needs with free agency.  More specifically, always draft the best players available in each round and target needs in free agency if draft doesn’t hit all your holes.

Eagles' defense bends, doesn't break

All those yards the Philadelphia Eagles give up on defense aren't translating into points for the opponents. The numbers say the Eagles have the NFL's 3rd-worst defense in total yards, allowing 398.1 per game. Only Minnesota (401.2) and Dallas (426.8) give up more. But points determine the winner and the Eagles are keeping teams out of the end zone. Since Peyton Manning...

Weekly Vinny Curry Update

In a snowy afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field, our hero, wearing number 75, continued his strong play.
