Every year, it seems that the Philadelphia Eagles have talent, and promise to bring home the Lombardi, but something always seems to happen, and no World Championship happens, and no ticker tape parade, and Eagle fans have to deal with "there's always next year." once again. Related posts:

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Eagles head coach Andy Reid benched wide receiver DeSean Jackson during today’s loss to the Patriots. “I just wanted to give the other guys an opportunity,” Reid said when asked about Jackson’s benching. When Reid was asked about how Jackson played tonight he had the following reply, “You didn’t [...]
If the Eagles go to Seattle and are beaten by a bad Seahawks team it will increase the chances that Andy Reid will be fired. The embarrassing loss to the Patriots surely gave Jeffrey Lurie and Joe Banner more reasons to consider firing Reid. Lurie is from the Boston area. He considered purchasing the Patriots.

Eagles QB Vince Young looked stellar – for three minutes, as his Eagles took a 10-0 lead early on, before the New England Patriots overcame their slow star to crush Philly in their house this evening. Patriots QB Tom Brady looked clinical once again, throwing darts across the field and connecting on deep balls to WR’s Deion Branch and Wes...
Julian Edelman showed his athleticism with a red zone stop of a scrambling Vince Young that ended up keeping the Eagles off the scoreboard.
The Philadelphia Eagles have ruled out quarterback Michael Vick (ribs), wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (hamstring and shoulder), and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle), for Thursday night's game in Seattle.
Congratulations to the British Columbia Lions, who defeated the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 34-23 in front of a crowd of 54,000 to win the 99th Grey Cup. I’m not sure that Vancouver deserves nice things, considering how the city responded to losing the Stanley Cup, but I can’t imagine that Winnipeg is too torn up about the loss. After all, the Jets are back!
Anyway, here’s what we...
At the end of Sunday’s brutal 380-20 Patriots win over the Eagles two players were firmly seated on their respective benches. One was Pats QB Tom Brady, leader of an elite but far from perfect team, who took a rest after amassing a three-touchdown lead. The other was DeSean Jackson, talented underachiever on a league-basement team, who was benched for poor play while the Eagles...
