How far are the Philadelphia Eagles from competing for a Super Bowl?

You may not have heard but on Sunday the (fundamentally evil) New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks will play in the Super Bowl. Both won the top seed in their conference and are generally revered as the two best teams in the NFL right now, so it should be a good one. But what about the rest of the league? Should we just assume that the Seahawks and Patriots are the best...

Three cornerbacks the Philadelphia Eagles should consider in the NFL Draft

To say that the Philadelphia Eagles had cornerback problems in 2014 would be the understatement of the year. Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher got toasted consistently by the better wide receivers around the NFL (sometimes the mediocre ones too) and were a big reason why the Eagles fell apart late in the season. Now the word on the street is that both Williams and Fletcher won...

Report: Eagles interested in Hamilton Tiger-Cats CB Delvin Breaux

With the season now over for the Philadelphia Eagles, it is time to look at what went wrong and what positions they need upgrade during the offseason. One particular position that the Eagles will have to upgrade at is cornerback.

Cary Williams Could Care Less If Eagles Cut Him In Offseason

Cary Williams should be done in Philadelphia, and the Eagles should do a complete overhaul of their awful secondary. The embattled cornerback was asked about his future in Philadelphia after the Eagles watch Odell Beckham Jr. go wild in the secondary. According to several reports, Williams made it clear that Chip Kelly’s system wears the players out, and he doesn’t really...

Report: Philadelphia Eagles will cut ties with cornerback Cary Williams this offseason

I just don’t know how Philadelphia Eagles fans are going to recover from today’s news about their cornerbacks. Earlier today we learned that Bradley Fletcher is battling a hip injury and may be unable to play this week against the New York Giants, but now the other shoe has dropped and a far more serious problem is on the horizon. According to the Philadelphia Enquirer, the Eagles...

Ricardo Lockette flops during verbal spat with Cary Williams (VIDEO)

The two were jawing throughout the NFC matchup and at one point, Lockette attempted to do something about it. So he flopped.

Seahawks' Ricardo Lockette takes epic dive against Eagles (VIDEO)

Zach Mettenberger is no slouch at QB for Titans… I don’t view the Eagles’ Sunday home game against the Tennessee Titans as a lock… Sure, the Titans are 2-8 and their head coach Ken Whisenhunt is probably consulting psychics at this point… but they have been in a lot of games close until the end. Moreover, they have introduced a young QB named Zach Mettenberger into the...

Cary Williams: Andre Johnson Is ‘Not The Same Guy’

Cary Williams usually talks to much, but this time I believe he’s on to something.  Andre Johnson spent most of the offseason clamoring to get out of Houston, before showing up to camp and playing the loyal soldier. Johnson has 48 catches, 563 yards and 1 touchdown for the 4-5 Texans.  After the Texans 31-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles at home, Williams told the media that...

VIDEO: Philadelphia Eagles CB Cary Williams talks getting burned by Brian Quick

The back shoulder fade is probably the most difficult pass to defend in football. When properly executed between the quarterback and wide receiver, there’s really very little that a defensive back can do to stop it. Whether the catch is completed or not is pretty much entirely up to the offense. Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Cary Williams knows this firsthand, because he got burned...
