Philadelphia Eagles Position Preview: Running Backs

The 2015 Philadelphia Eagles somehow managed to bolster their backfield to be even more volatile than last season when they had LeSean McCoy. But with the free agent signings of Ryan Mathews and last season’s NFL leading rusher, DeMarco Murray, the Eagles find themselves with not only the most talented backfield in football, but also the deepest. The three-headed monster may end...

RB coach Duce Staley says DeMarco Murray is a 'perfect fit' for Eagles offense

Philadelphia Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley believes new rusher DeMarco Murry is a 'perfect fit' for the high octane offense the team runs.

Either way, Staley likes the fact Murray will carry...

Yinzing In Free Agency with Duce Staley

NFL free agency starts tomorrow and what better way to kick off the signing period than by commemorating one of the mediocre signings the Steelers had. Duce Staley was a stud on the Eagles when healthy. He ran like a bowling ball and was a good receiver out of the backfield. That sort of combo made his signing in Pittsburgh very tantalizing, especially when teamed up with an even...

Charlie College: Professors are secret to Eagles success

When you think of college ties in the NFL, you think of the many colleges and universities across America that sent athletes to the highest level of football. You think of coaches who also go from making adjustments and building a program every four years to bidding for Super Bowls. You may even think of alumni, not of a college but to a team, the way that Duce Staley and Tra Thomas...

Steelers’ Last Two Trips to Lambeau Have Been Interesting

I can still see the ball off Neil O’Donnell’s hand. It was fourth and goal and the Steelers trailed the Green Bay Packers 24-19 the day before Christmas in 1995. Awaiting the ball was Steelers’ wide receiver Yancey Thigpen. He was all alone in the back of the end zone. There were just 16 seconds left when the play began. A touchdown here would ice the victory and would give...
