Eagles veteran players looking to break out of their career shadows…

Most of the speculative excitement about upcoming Eagles training camp will be focused upon the drafted rookies and the offseason big-name acquisitions. It always seems that way.  I had been thinking about giving some thought to the other guys, though—the returning veteran players whose careers are somewhat in the shadows of popular scrutiny. I worked on a rough draft of such...

Projecting the 2015 Philadelphia Eagles Offense: QBs & Parkey Edition

In less than a month, the Philadelphia Eagles will open training camp.  Without question, the most significant storyline will be the “open competition” at the quarterback position.  This will undoubtedly dwarf the following topics: Evan Mathis’ departure, the performance of Allen Barbre/Jason Moffitt/ Matt Tobin/Andrew Gardner/etc., the new-look Murray/Mathews/Sproles backfield...

Mandatory Eagles Minicamp Musings…

Brandon Lee Gowton, lead editor and writer for Bleeding Green Nation… I think… This edition of the EYE should be more about the longevity of the career of Eagles left tackle Jason Peters… he is still regarded after almost a decade of excellence and periodic bouts of fighting through injury as one of the best players and best left tackles in the NFL. But cut the music! NFLN’s...

Eagles LT Jason Peters not worried about playing without LG Evan Mathis

As the Philadelphia Eagles get ready to wrap up their third set of OTA practices, all-pro left guard Evan Mathis remains absent from the team's facility. Mathis is holding out for a new contract that would pay him like one of the best players at his position. Mathis has lined up next to left tackle Jason Peters over the last four seasons, and they have combined to make up arguably...

2016 NFL Draft Prospects: Guards

Eagles 2016 1st Round Pick? Photo: Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports It’s not a secret that the Philadelphia Eagles have some serious need for depth at guard and need to get younger. Evan Mathis might not be an Eagle this year and even if he does return he’s on the wrong side of 30. Allen Barbre is a player returning from a major injury and not proven, but the team seems EXTREMELY...

Eagles' OL Allen Barbre looks more comfortable at left guard

The Philadelphia Eagles are asking a lot from career backup offensive lineman Allen Barbre.

Philadelphia Eagles new look at offensive line

The Philadelphia Eagles may have quite a new look at offensive line in 2015. Given that Todd Herremans has been picked up by the Indianapolis Colts, and Evan Mathis has yet to report to voluntary OTAs as he and his agent have reportedly been looking at prospecting teams, the Birds are looking for at least two new starters for the interior line.   Contrary to popular belief leading...

Over the last four seasons, there have been no issues on the field for the Philadelphia Eagles at left guard. Evan Mathis has manned the position and according to Pro Football Focus, he has been one of the best offensive lineman overall in that time frame.

Eagles Offensive Line Under Pressure in 2015

Over the last few years, the Philadelphia Eagles have built up one of the most underrated offensive lines in the NFL. The process began with the acquisition of former Buffalo Bills OT Jason Peters, and the coming to form of long-time Eagle Todd Herremans in 2009. Soon came the additions of Jason Kelce and Evan Mathis and 2011, and the drafting of Lane Johnson 2 years later. Of these...

Eagles Offensive Line: Strength or Weakness?

With the fourth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles picked a raw but extremely athletic tackle out of Oklahoma, Lane Johnson. Johnson immediately stepped in as the right tackle for the Eagles and by in large, has played well.  However, since that time, the Eagles have had 20 draft picks. They have spent zero on offensive lineman. It was the first time in...

Some of the biggest concern’s of the offseason still remain unchecked for the Eagles. For example, a starter is still needed beside Malcolm Jenkins, a starting caliber wide receiver is still needed to replace Jeremy Maclin, and depth still needs to be added to an aging offensive line.

Behind Enemy Lines with cover32 Philadelphia Eagles

The Rams face off against the Philadelphia Eagles this week, so I sent five questions to Philadelphia Eagles managing editor Tim Weaver to get his thoughts on the matchup. 1. The Eagles are off to a 3-1 start, but they had to come back from fairly significant deficits in all three of their wins and then lost last week. Any explanation? Football is weird. Part of the explanation is...
