Eagles' defense fresh in 2nd half of games

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles' up-tempo offense, which is wearing down opposing defenses, may be helping their defense. In their first two games, the Eagles have allowed 34 first-half points in wins over Jacksonville and Indianapolis. In the second half, the same defense has allowed just 10 points. The Eagles came back to win both, becoming the first team in NFL...

Why the Philadelphia Eagles need more creativity at inside linebacker

I’ve been vocal since the early parts of the offseason that the Philadelphia Eagles were doing the right thing by spending most of their resources on building depth as opposed to finding a “superstar safety” like Jairus Byrd, now of the New Orleans Saints. The allocation of resources is a major part of team building, and the team was very thin at a lot of positions. With the...

Philadelphia Eagles: Week 2 preview

Monday night’s matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium is sure to be a high-scoring affair. The Eagles surrendered 17 points last week before scoring any points of their own, while the Colts fell behind 24-0. Both teams quickly rebounded, as the Eagles posted 34 and the Colts 24. While both offenses are very capable of gaining points...

Eagles scramble to restock roster…and the first week of BriSuksEgg fantasies…

Eagles personnel office is busier than usual this week. New troops are being signed to relieve the casualties. Besides signing Houston veteran LG Wade Smith to help fill in the depth on the offensive line, the Birds also moved big rookie Kevin Graf (6-6 RT from USC) up from the PS10. Graf by most accounts is not NFL-ready at right tackle…yet. As for the help needed at inside linebacker...

Jobs on the line in Philadelphia Eagles’ final preseason game

The Philadelphia Eagles will face off against the New York Jets tonight at the Linc to end their 2014 preseason.

Philadelphia Eagles should be a playoff team in 2014, but 10 sleepers will challenge

One of the great things about the NFL is that nearly every team can make a case for the upcoming season being “their year.” That’s because every campaign sees plenty of worst-to-first turnarounds, where non-playoff teams from the year before suddenly find themselves in postseason contention down the stretch. Some of this is nothing more than false hope, summertime bravado that...

Eagles Linebacker Takes Shot At Andrew Luck For Attending The World Cup

I have never heard of Emmanuel Acho before today, but apparently he’s a linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles. Entering his third NFL season, he has two combined tackles in his pro football career. I have, however, heard of Andrew Luck, the first overall pick in the 2012 Draft who has thrown for over 8000 yards and 46 touchdowns in his first two seasons as an NFL quarterback....

Eagles Must Feel Good About Their Backup Inside Linebackers

The NFL Draft has come and gone and if there was one surprise, it was that the Eagles didn’t select an Inside Linebacker to potentially be DeMeco Ryans’ heir apparent. Hell, they didn’t even sign a rookie free agent at that position. That speaks volumes about how they must feel about Najee Goode, Jake Knott, Jason Phillips and Emmanuel Acho. To me, the defining moment in the...
