Stunning loss by Eagles to Miami, 20-19…

When you sign on as an Eagles fan, you should be no stranger to the concept of heartbreaking losses. This one, however, was exceptionally depressing and weird. The Birds finally got off to a great offensive start in the first quarter… and then, proceeded to waste a gritty defensive effort against the Dolphins and succumbed to the ultimate radioactive decay on offense. Give Miami...

Pros and Cons: Eagles dagger Cowboys in OT, keep pace with Giants in NFC East

Memo to Eagles defense—keep up the good work!

I will take the current Eagles mix of solid opportunistic defense along with power running in spurts on offense. Throw in Donnie Jones punting like Superman—and push ’em back, push ’em back, waaaay back! You can win a lot of games that way. The problem is when you play a really good team with a similar defensive profile, a good power runner— and they have a Top-10 quality...

Eagles Win Over Saints: Optimistic vs. Realistic

Are the Eagles ready to fly? Photo: The Eagles played their best and most complete game against the Saints and won big.  The offense rolled up 519 yards and 39 points while the defense forced four turnovers and sacked Drew Brees five times. It was the kind of game the Eagles needed.  After playing some really bad football for four weeks, this is the kind...

Chip Kelly reveals secret to Darren Sproles’ success

Chip Kelly is a huge Darren Sproles fan, like millions of football aficionados, but the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles loves the diminutive running back for more than his production on Sundays. Apparently, Sproles went to the Jerry Rice school of practice habits. According to Kelly, he takes just as much pride in what he’s doing during the week in practice as he does on...

Eagles Punter Gets Destroyed By Vicious Hit After Blocked Punt (Video)

Donnie Jones has had better days. The Philadelphia Eagles punter went through a disastrous series of events in Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. First, the Cowboys blocked Jones’ punt and returned it for a touchdown, but that wasn’t even close to the most painful thing to happen to him on the play. Jones had a chance to make a tackle, but Cowboys defensive back Jeff...

Cowboys block punt and return for touchdown

The NFC East showdown between the Cowboys and Eagles was one of the most anticipated games on the NFL’s Week 2 slate. It didn’t exactly live up to its billing in the first half. Most people watching the game either were lulled to sleep or pulling their hair out because they took the over. The Cowboys led 6-0 at halftime until the Kyle Wilber blocked a Donnie Jones punt and returned...

Week 1 wrap-up: Philadelphia Eagles vs. Atlanta Falcons

In their much anticipated start of the 2015 NFL season, the Philadelphia Eagles headed to the Georgia Dome to take on Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. However, the party was spoiled as a second-half comeback was not enough, leading the Eagles to drop their season opener by the final score of 26-24. Despite seeing Sam Bradford and the Eagles’ offense explode in the preseason,...

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...

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...

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...

The hype is understandable. Eagles fans are desperate for a safety who can line his guys up and provide leadership in the secondary.

And then there are the “X-Factors” whom Dave Spadaro of has designated as the Birds’ secret weapons: Nolan Carroll—nickel/dime CB, KR…. Brandon Graham— OLB…...
