It’s a Travis-ty… Eagles linebacker quietly tears his ACL…Casey Matthews lives as Philly cuts continue…

I never saw Travis Long appear injured at all in Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Jets. Maybe what Hopper says is true— he played through it. That if true would be more evidence to support my theory that Travis Long is a gamer— and he had this team made as a Swiss army-knife kinda guy who could play ILB, OLB, and special teams in a high-quality utility way. I have...

Casey Matthews bulks up... does it matter?

Casey Matthews has bulked up from 232 pounds to 250 under the tutelage of his brother Clay (Green Bay Packers)... the idea is to become bigger so it's easier to shed those medium-downfield blocks by the 300-pound OL behemoths of the NFL.  Some folks worry that the extra weight will slow Casey down in nickel coverage of pass receivers... Does that really matter in this stage...

Eagles’ Casey Matthews bulks up to 250

One of the reasons Casey Matthews fell to the 4th round last year and subsequently was unable to hold down a starting job for the Eagles last year was his lack of size. At 232 pounds at The Combine, Matthews was described as Clay Matthews’ without the physical gifts, meaning he had his brother’s intangibles, but was too small to be a regular starters. That seems to have changed...
