On the day of dress rehearsal, the Philadelphia Eagles showed they are ready for the real thing in their 31-21 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was a sharp showing all around for the Eagles, who were able to display their depth at a number of positions.
First off, the offensive line finally did a good job of protecting the quarterback. Offensive tackle Allen Barbre, who will...
Outside of a handful of players, the second preseason game for the Philadelphia Eagles was much more positive. Sure Curtis Marsh got torched for three quarters, Allen Barbre got beat off the edge pretty bad and the defense still struggled, but there were too many positives to focus on.

Allen Barbre sees being a starter for the Philadelphia Eagles pretty much the same way as being a reserve.
"I guess I don't really feel any different," he said. "I come out and work hard every day. Whether I'm a backup or whether I'm a starter, I want my team to trust me and I want to go out and play for my teammates."

Chip Kelly wasted little time (what’s new?) in resolving the competition for the right tackle spot left wide open for the first 4 weeks of the season due to Lane Johnson’s suspension for failing a banned substance test. Allen Barbre is the man according to Chip.

The Eagles offensive line had a rough go early on last season, dealing with multiple injuries, but by season’s end, the team had established one of the better offensive lines in the league when at full strength.
Going into this season, they are already dealing with adversity. ESPN reported in late June that 2013 first round pick offensive tackle Lane Johnson had been suspended...
With right tackle Lane Johnson facing a four game suspension, the Eagles leave themselves exposed on the right side of the offensive line.
Johnson’s replacement is expected to be journeyman tackle Allen Barbre, who showed competence last season in the wake of Jason Peters’ injury against the Green Bay Packers. However, opposing defensive players should be licking their chops...
When your football team is in the news in July it’s generally not a good thing. With two months to go before the NFL season kicks off, the Philadelphia Eagles can’t be happy that their players are making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Back in April linebacker Jake Knott was suspended for four games, and now it appears that another Eagle has been bitten by the PED bug.

The Eagles have locked up tackle Allen Barbre for the foreseeable future. He’s a journeyman lineman who was drafted in the 4th round by the Packers in 2007. He spent three years in Green Bay and struggled to find a role as he moved around and tried out left guard. He then spent some time in Seattle and Miami before coming to the Eagles last year.

This one isn’t even close. I could talk about Allen Barbre and Marshall Newhouse until we all get headaches; and while talent wise they may actually be worse, it is pretty obvious that the worst tackle ever drafted by the Packers is Tony Mandarich.
The former Michigan State standout was once dubbed by Sports Illustrated as the best offensive lineman prospect of all time, but he...
Jason Kelce may have just signed an extension, and Evan Mathis may be coming off a Pro Bowl season. But that doesn’t negate the fact that aside for Kelce, the Eagles’ interior line is slowing creeping up there in age.
Both Mathis and right guard Todd Herremans will be 33 and 32 next year, respectively. According to the Eagles official depth chart, Allen Barbre is listed as the...

Since 2010, no other NFL team has had more players suspended for PED use than the Seahawks, and now they could be hit with fines from the NFL as well.
