In 2014, Sanchez filled in...

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly does not care about time of possession

There are many ways that Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is making his mark on the NFL. From cutting players who don’t buy into his system, to the insane speed with which he runs his practices, he has tossed aside many long-held pro football traditions. Another thing that he is changing is the misleading statistic of time of possession. The attitude he has towards time of possession...

CB Byron Maxwell rated No. 4 for most likely to disappoint

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell Byron may not be the saving grace for the Eagles secondary they think he is, but he'll have a hard time doing worse than underachievers Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams. With that being said, Maxwell benefitted from having three Pro-Bowlers in the Seahawks defensive backfield and won't have that luxury in Philly. According to Marc...

Some teams are more equipped than others, but that doesn’t stop anyone from doing their best and trying to win it all.  If not, why even bother playing? The Eagles have made a lot of changes this...

Philadelphia Eagles: if Bradford is not ready

Come time for the 2015 NFL regular season the Philadelphia Eagles expect Sam Bradford to be their starting quarterback. Though Bradford has an elite arm, coveted accuracy, and the ability to make the right choice, when one considers the realistic expectations it’s hard to expect the Oklahoma alumni to overcome two major knee injuries. The best comparison of another starting quarterback...

Philadelphia Eagles Are Least Traveled Team in 2015 NFL Season

The Philadelphia Eagles have some hurdles to climb to get back into the NFC playoff picture.

Eagles add guard John Moffit, dump Manhart

As expected, the Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with free agent center John Moffit on Monday, per Moffit played two years in Seattle (selected in the 3rd round in 2011) before being traded to Denver in 2013, the same year he retired.

Eagles head coach Kelly: “We needed to rebuild the secondary”…

I guess we did have to rebuild the defensive secondary, although truth be told I was pretty darn content with Cary Williams at one corner. Quite frankly, the corners took a lot of heat over the past season because rotational help from the safety (I won’t name nates, I mean, names) was often late to the party. Three of the Eagles’ first four draft picks were used on the secondary...

What the signing of John Moffitt means for the Philadelphia Eagles

On June 25, the Philadelphia Eagles signed retired guard John Moffitt. Now, signing players out of retirement has been done before, but it is usually not too common given their age and ability to play the position anymore. However, the odd part about Moffitt is that he is only 28, has been out of the league since the middle of the 2013 season, and has now been signed to the team...
