Thanks, ‘Meco… Eagles fans around the world appreciate your contribution…

At age 31, with a history of increasing injury frequency and with a new coaching staff and a switch to a 4-3 defense in 2016, inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans became expendable. The Eagles cut “Mufasa” yesterday. That is how it will read in the sports history books fifty years from now. But DeMeco Ryans means so much more to the Philadelphia Eagles legacy than that. The Eagles...

How do you feel about the 2015 Eagles so far?

        This is one of those “I’ve got nothing!” days for me— I mean, I’m glad the Eagles have extended inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans for another two seasons, and that’s about the extent of my enthusiasm for team news right now.  This means the medical outlook on DeMeco’s rehab from a reconstructed Achilles tendon is good.  The extended contract has a very gentle...

Philadelphia Eagles season ends in disappointment

DeSean Jackson burns Bradley Fletcher to help eliminate the Eagles from playoff contention. If I told Eagles fans at the beginning of the season that Tony Romo and DeSean Jackson would hand the Eagles two losses in a row to end their playoff hopes, it would have sounded like the ultimate nightmare. Now, that is the reality. Romo and the Cowboys came into Philadelphia in a primetime...

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell made the trip to Philadelphia for a preseason game against the Eagles on Thursday despite being arrested for possession of marijuana on Wednesday.

DeMeco Ryans has emerged as a real leader for Eagles defense…

I hope you don’t mind my homage to the unsung hero of the Eagles’ current defensive system— DeMeco Ryans. DeMeco as you know is the 9th year inside linebacker who wears the radio-helmet that gets the last-second calls from the sideline and who basically captains the Eagles’ front-seven defense. In recent weeks DeMeco has been quoted by many sources as saying, to paraphrase...
