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

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...
