How will the new PAT rules affect the Philadelphia Eagles?

The Philadelphia Eagles did not get their wish with the new proposed PAT rule. Extra points will be moved from the two-yard line to the 15-yard line, the defense can now return a turnover on a PAT or two-point conversion attempt, but if a team is attempting a two point conversion, it’s still from the two-yard line rather than the one like the Eagles wanted. No worries, the Eagles...

Testing the comfort zone of the Eagles O-Line…

I get the sense that Chip Kelly feels pretty comfortable about his offensive line heading into the next stage of the 2015 preseason. Sure, the prospect of losing the somewhat disgruntled Pro Bowl left guard Evan Mathis (money matters) doesn’t sit well with many fans— but Kelly seems okay with that possibility. Kelly relies on the evaluation and development of O-Line talent by...

Why Chip Kelly and the Eagles May Not Attempt Many Two-Point Conversions

The Philadelphia Eagles attempted but failed to change the NFL rule and make two-point conversions easier by performing them at the one-yard line.

In the 2014 NFL Draft, it was a shock when the Philadelphia Eagles selected Louisville lineman Marcus Smith II with the 26th overall pick. Most fans were frustrated with the pick, hoping that the Eagles would take a well-known receiver or safety. Howie Roseman, at that time the team’s General Manager, saw something in Smith, and had the final say on the first round selection. I’m...

Philadelphia Eagles: New kicking distance for Cody Parkey

The NFL has changed its rules to try making those 30 seconds following a touchdown a time other than to grab more chips, suds, or both. Attempting an extra point from the 15-yard line means gaining that extra point on the frozen concrete of northerly stadiums in the middle of November just got harder. Kinda. There was no debate over whether or not the rule should have been changed...
