I used to be one of Mike Florio's biggest fans. Back in 2001 when he was just starting Pro Football Talk.com, he seemed dedicated to the truth and was edgy and compelling... Nobody seemed more devoted to bringing us the underbelly of the back-story about the NFL and the Eagles. It was revolutionary sports reporting. Now, it has seemingly degenerated into a "reality show" of unsubstantiated gossip and conjecture.Mike Florio, attorney and ESPN analysyst, now 58... He is now a co-owner with NBC of his beloved Pro Football Talk.com... which since 2009 has turned into a quagmire of gossip and rumor, and which obfuscates the totality of a story for the sake of creating an instant internet buzz...Did the big NBC money persuade Florio to abandon the pursuit of NFL truth at all costs? Perhaps...but probably it was the lure of being so popular among his growing audience that he decided to keep pushing the envelope in pursuit of mass ratings.The recent Eagles story he covered is ...

Obviously with Jason Peters out of the fold for 2012 the Philadelphia Eagles were fortunate to land Demetrius Bell today. It’s being reported that the Eagles have signed him to a five-year deal.
It’s important to get out of the way immediately that Bell is not truly a replacement for Jason Peters. Peters was the best left tackle in football last...
With the addition of DeMeco Ryans, the Eagles may likely hold off drafting a linebacker in the first round. If they do, one option that may be available to them is North Carolina linebacker Zach Brown.
Brown stands at 6-1, 244 pounds and has outstanding speed. At the NFL Combine this year, Brown recorded a 40-yard dash time of 4.50 which ranked second among all linebackers.
NESN.com's Jeff Howe fielded questions from Patriots fans on Twitter Monday to fill them in about the team's plans for the upcoming NFL draft. Coming off a season in which New England was minutes away from winning the Super Bowl, the Patriots are in good shape, but they still have some holes to fill. Jeff answered fans' questions about potential running back targets ...
The Philadelphia Eagles will be on hand today for a private workout with Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill. With all the buzz about the Eagles and quarterbacks this offseason, one has to wonder if they have a serious target with one of their top three selections in the 2012 NFL draft.
I recently wrote about why the Eagles should avoid taking a quarterback with either...

The preseason schedule for the Philadelphia Eagles was announced on Wednesday. Generally not the most exciting of news, but it’s some sort of indication that football, even in preseason form, is getting closer. Therefore, I will gladly take it.
Here are the deets:

Nike has taken over the NFL jersey market from Reebok and unveiled their new designs for every team today. As you can see by the picture above, not much of anything has changed with the Eagles jersey, save for the swooshes on the front of the pants and the sides of the jersey. There had been speculation of color changes and slight modifications but it appears that the Eagles...
Today, the Eagles released their preseason schedule taking on most of the AFC North, with the exception of the New England Patriots. Similar to last years schedule, the Eagles will most likely have their starters play the 1st quarter, and then have the back-ups and third-string unit to play the rest.
There are a lot of fans who believe the preseason isn’t really important. However...
With all the buzz going around the Eagles organization about addressing the offensive tackle position, either in draft or in free agency, lets not get side tracked here, the Eagles still need someone at the outside linebacker position to help DeMeco, and make some noise on this defense. Even though acquiring DeMeco from the Texans was a good deal, when it comes down to game time...
The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they have agreed to terms on a five-year contract with free agent offensive tackle Demetrius Bell. Financial terms were not disclosed. A seventh round pick out of Northwestern State by the Buffalo Bills in 2008, the 6-foot-5, 311-pound Bell sat his entire rookie season before starting 30 of 31 games over the 2009, 2010 and 2011 seasons. Bell...
