Morning Muse: Philadelphia Eagles defense needs to bring the pressure, and quickly

The Philadelphia Eagles lost to the New England Patriots 42-35 on Friday night in Foxboro, falling to 0-2 in the preseason. The days of saying, “It’s just the preseason,” quickly fade as the Birds prepare for the all-important third preseason game on Thursday night at home against the Steelers. It all seems so similar to last season–growing confidence in the offense, continuing...

Henery's miss comes after solid camp

Despite the improvements that Alex Henery displayed during training camp, the Eagles kicker hooked a 47-yard field goal wide in the 42-35 preseason loss to the Patriots on Friday night. It was his first field goal attempt of the preseason, and the kick was not even close off his foot. "You've got to make 47-yarders in this league," coach Chip Kelly said. Kelly said...

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Alex Henery ranked 2nd best in NFL…

… In fantasy that is, but maybe in real life as well. With a week of preseason games now in the books, the 2014 NFL season is officially underway. And that can only mean one thing: Fantasy football drafts are about to start happening. In order to get a jump on the competition, it’s never to early to start putting together a draft board. To help the cause, cover32 will be ranking...

Jon Striefsky: the Soul of an NFL kicker

Last week I wrote about Alex Henery and the kick he missed in the playoffs against the New Orleans Saints. My belief is that the Eagles blew a number of opportunities in that game and that blaming Henery for the loss is unfair. I also thought that the kick was not automatic by any means, but not having ever kicked a field goal in my life I wasn’t sure, so I decided to ask somebody...

Kicking Alex Henery: who to blame for Eagles playoff loss?

When things go wrong in the NFL playoffs it’s only natural to try to pin the blame on somebody. For example, let’s say that the Eagles lose a playoff game by two points. During that game their kicker missed a field goal. Field goals are worth three points. Simple math indicates that if only the stupid kicker had done his job the Eagles would have advanced, right? Wrong. Of course...

Report: Eagles Sign Kicker Alex Henery To An Extension

Photo: Wikipedia Commons Eagles kicker Alex Henery had a down year in 2013.  With just an 82.1 field goal percentage last season, Henery ranked 22nd in the league among kickers.  The down year caused many Eagles fans to be down on Henery.  However, a report this morning says that Henery will be sticking around. Dave Mangels of Bleeding Green Nation reports: Alex Henery has been...

Mailbag: Henery’s future, free agency and Bill Davis

Thank you to everyone who sent us questions this week via e-mail. We appreciate the involvement as we wind down towards the end of the NFL season. They’re going to cut Alex Henery, right? – Dale from Sellersville I wouldn’t say they’ll cut him, but I fully expect them to bring in some competition. Henery’s stats aren’t all that bad, it’s just his misses stand out a...

Eagles Would Be Wise to Part Ways with Alex Henery

Alex Henery's struggles against the Saints both kicking field goals and getting deep kickoffs were a microcosm for his 2013 and the reason the Eagles likely will move in a new direction. (Image courtesy of The frigid temperatures of Lambeau Field didn't seem to impact kickers Phil Dawson or Mason crosby on Sunday afternoon. In spite of temperatures in the single...

Alex Henery Fined $15,750 by the NFL

Eagles kicker Alex Henery is starting to get on thin ice with the Eagles. He failed to recover a fumble on special teams, and he’s missed a field goal in consecutive games for the first time in his career. So it’s not a surprise that Henery wants to give his all now, and is looking to impress the fans – and more importantly the Eagles’ front office – with his effort. In...

Alex Henery shanks field goal attempt really, really wide left (Video)

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Alex Henery made one of the more awful field goal attempts of this NFL season during Sunday's season finale against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. To say that Henery's 28-yard field goal attempt in the second quarter was no good would not do justice to describe just how horrendous the kick was, as it was shanked wide left by at least...
