Eagles 53-Man Roster Prediction: Any Real Surprises?

Would a 6th Round CB making the team be a surprise? Photo: philadelphiaeagles.com Now that the Eagles’ mandatory mini camp, voluntary OTAs and the draft are over and free agency has settled, we have officially entered the summer doldrums of non-NFL activity.  So, what better time than to do the roster version of a mock draft? The Eagles have 90 players on their roster currently...

Jumping the shark on Eagles news coverage…

You know it’s a slow NFL news day when you see stories like this one:  “Pro Football Focus’ (PFF) analysts ranked Kelly’s Birds as the sixth best roster in the NFL, one spot worse than their 2014 ranking.” Now apparently this concocted angle bases roster strength on how many “elite”-ranked players you have on your roster. PFF considers Jason Peters, Evan Mathis...

Philadelphia Eagles Have NFL’s Best Long Snapper

Last year the Eagles Special Teams unit was ranked #1 in the NFL. Along with all members on kickoff and kickoff return, the three main stars were kicker and Pro Bowler Cody Parkey, old reliable punter Donnie Jones, and of course the “Magic Man” himself, long snapper Jon Dorenbos. Very little attention is brought to the long snappers in the league and usually people only see the...

Guessing the Eagles’ 53-Man Roster

Will UDFA WR John Harris make the roster? Photo: Richard Rodriguez/Star-Telegram Decided to take a pre-crack at the Eagles’ 53-man roster before the camps actually kick off. I always find it amusing to take a guess before the pre-season and see how wrong or right I was. QB – Bradford, Sanchez, Barkley I’m going with the safer pick here at QB and taking Barkley over Tebow....

Can the Philadelphia Eagles continue their dominance on special teams?

In 2014, the Philadelphia Eagles special teams unit was arguably the best of the three phases. It was also historically great with an NFL-record seven touchdowns. Head coach Chip Kelly and special teams coordinator Dave Fipp have worked wonders with a group of misfits and turned them into one of the best in the league. Four of the Eagles biggest special teams stars – kicker Cody...

RECAP: Special teams dominate for Eagles in game that was too close for comfort

The Philadelphia Eagles got a dominating performance from their special teams unit in a 34-28 win over the visiting St. Louis Rams today. Offensively and defensively there are still some problems but they were just good enough to hang on for a win. MVP – Special Teams For the second straight game the Eagles blocked a punt and Chris Maragos scored a touchdown on the recovery....

Philadelphia Eagles fans will want to monitor these Week 5 bold predictions

Anyone can pick games. Whether selecting winners or making guesses against the spread, it’s essentially an exercise in flipping a coin. But providing some specifics about what’s going to happen in a game, detailing how things are going to play out, takes some thought, imagination and guts. And it actually provides some insight into what’s going to transpire on Sunday and Monday...

VIDEO: Eagles punter Donnie Jones sings country version of Baby got Back

The last thing you want to do in the NFL is let a loss affect you. The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off a tough one on the road against the 49ers, but by the looks of things they’re not letting it get to them. In fact, they might be just a little too jolly for their own good. Here’s Eagles punter Donnie Jones singing an almost unrecognizable country version of Sir Mix a Lot’s...

Watch Eagles punter Donnie Jones sing cowboy-infused 'Baby Got Back' to Darren Sproles

In the Eagles locker room on Tuesday, punter Donnie Jones and running back Darren Sproles played a game where Sproles had to guess the tune that Jones sang for him.  Well, the headline already spoiled the song's identification, but thanks to WPVI TV's Jeff Skversky, you can still enjoy Jones' air guitar, cowboy-ish remix of Sir Mix-a-Lot's classic "Baby Got Back."  Actually, the...

The Road Diary: Eagles at Colts

Horsie Not Fat EnoughFor the past six years, I've taken the Shooter Mom to a road game for our beloved Eagles. Why a road game? Frankly, they are more fun. It's more relaxed from our part, since we're not as life and death on whether the club gets a win; you just don't expect it so much on road games, so a win is more of a bonus than a relief. The players tend to eyeball you up as...

Debunking the “missing piece” and “X-Factor” theories as Eagles take on Jags…

The hype is understandable. Eagles fans are desperate for a safety who can line his guys up and provide leadership in the secondary. Malcolm Jenkins (#27) is labeled the “missing piece” in that scenario. And then there are the “X-Factors” whom Dave Spadaro of PE.com has designated as the Birds’ secret weapons: Nolan Carroll—nickel/dime CB, KR…. Brandon Graham— OLB…...

No big splash for Eagles on Day 1 of FA....I guess we're saving our bullets for the Draft...

Nothing wrong with a conservative aproach to spending on free agency... Being a thrifty guy myself, I give props to Howie Roseman for not getting emotionally involved in the Talib and Byrd and Ward sweepstakes. Day 1 of FA Signings saw the Eagles play it close to the vest. Re-upping prime-time punter Donnie Jones to a 3-year deal was probably their most relevant move--...

Ranking the Eagles Re-Signings This Offseason

Free Agency starts on Tuesday, March 11th, but teams can already start negotiating with upcoming free agents. Will the Eagles be big spenders? Possibly, but I certainly would be surprised. Last year’s under-the-radar plan of adding guys like Connor Barwin, Bradley Fletcher and Donnie Jones to the mix sure seemed like a better strategy than 2011′s Dream-Team nightmare. That said...
