Brandon Graham: The Most Under-Appreciated Eagle

It's incomprehensible that the Eagles almost let Brandon Graham slip away. That Graham was close to becoming a New York Giant this past March, as close as you can be without applying a signature to a contract, is positively astounding. On March 11, the second day of free agency, the Eagles managed to lure Graham back into the nest with a four-year, $26M deal in which just over...

RB coach Duce Staley says DeMarco Murray is a 'perfect fit' for Eagles offense

Philadelphia Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley believes new rusher DeMarco Murry is a 'perfect fit' for the high octane offense the team runs. Murray averaged 24.5 carries per game for Dallas last year on his way to a league-leading 392 rushes, but will likely lose a handful of touches on passing-downs to Darren Sproles. Either way, Staley likes the fact Murray will carry...

Byron Maxwell Bolsters Eagles Pass D, But Questions Loom Vs. Run

There aren't too many questions about the Eagles' front seven on defense.

Kiko Alonso, assuming he's able to get back to his whirling dervish 2013 form, brings pivoting aggression that allows him to both blanket tight...
