What can Nick Foles bring to the Eagles this season?

When Chip Kelly brought his high-octane offense to the Philadelphia Eagles, people salivated over the prospect of quarterback Michael Vick spearheading the attack. The former number one overall pick with the speed of a wide receiver looked to be a natural fit in Kelly’s offense.

Who’s the best QB in the NFC East?

Usually in the NFL, how the team’s quarterback performs is a direct reflection of their win-loss record. Two years ago it was RGIII who was the toast of the NFL as he led his Washington Redskins to the division title.

Eagles changing the makeup of receiving corps to handle physical defenses

If there was one thing that could be taken away with hindsight from the DeSean Jackson drama, is that the receiver may not been big enough for what the team expects to happen this upcoming season. Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly has insisted that letting go of the big play threat wasn't personal, and maybe on some level it was, however, the personnel the coach has added dictates...

Who will make the cut on the Eagles defensive line?

Heading into the 2014 season, the Eagles sport one of the youngest and most athletic defensive lines in the NFL. However, the Eagles struggled to get pressure on the quarterback last year (tied for 20th in sacks with a mere 37). Because of this, one large point of emphasis will be increasing the number of “impact plays” as the players move into year two under defensive coordinator...

Chip Kelly says Eagles haven’t arrived yet

Chip Kelly oversaw one of the most dramatic turnarounds in recent NFL history last season. The Philadelphia Eagles finished 4-12 and last place in their division during the 2012 campaign. Over the following offseason they didn’t make any major personnel changes; no big name free agents were signed and no future hall of famers were taken in the draft. The big acquisition came at...

Nick Foles can’t be another Kevin Kolb

It may seem unlikely to start an article with the headline above, Kevin Kolb and Nick Foles are two different people. They both play on two different teams, so what do they have in common? Allow me to give you a brief history lesson, but don’t worry I promise it won’t be too long and boring. Kevin Kolb was drafted by the Eagles in the second round in the 2007 draft. After sitting...

Philadelphia Eagles: Why to watch Jordan Matthews at camp

Pressure makes diamonds. This upcoming training camp will be monumental for the Philadelphia Eagles and Jordan Matthews.
