When the Eagles burned their first-round pick on Danny Watkins two Aprils ago, he was projected to slide in at right guard and stick there deep into the future.

It is about a small window of opportunity... and that window is framed by heavy lifting, a lot of running up hills with weights attached, severe diet control, and incredible confrontation with heat and physical abuse... and that's just the entry point of qualification for training camp.
NewsI hope Nate Allen, Danny Watkins, Trent Cole, Brent Celek, Phillip Hunt, Michael Vick, Nick Foles and just about every player on the Birds roster realizes how important the three practices the Birds are having this week.

As March draws to a close, football’s focus turns increasingly to the upcoming 2013 NFL draft, which is exactly one month away.

This year’s draft will be different from that of 2012,...

For weeks now, everywhere I turn I hear about how the Philadelphia Eagles should fire Roseman along with Andy Reid and everyone else at season's end. I also hear a lot of people seemingly angry at Lurie for remaining quiet while the team is crumbling...
For weeks now, everywhere I turn I hear about how the Philadelphia Eagles should fire Howie Roseman along with Andy Reid and everyone else at season’s end. I also hear a lot of people seemingly angry at Jeff Lurie for not coming out and addressing the media about the state of the franchise (or firing Reid before the end of the year).
Just this morning, these two subjects were...
With Dallas Reynolds still out with a sprained ankle, it looks like Evan Mathis will start at center for the Eagles.

"Trying to get the five best guys," offensive...
