QB still a $20 million question mark for Eagles…

There seems to be no way around the price tag for a championship-quality NFL quarterback. If you find your guy, you’ll end up spending about $20 million a year to keep him. If you cobble together a substitute group of quarterbacks for one season with championship upside, as Chip Kelly has done in Philly, you still end up spending about $20 million. Sam Bradford— $13 million in...

Not a great day for Matt Barkley as Eagles sign Tim Tebow…

“Oh good… Chip lost his mind.” And so Dr. Funt (the Canadian boy genius) commented upon the impending signing of a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles by the 27-year-old quarterback Tim Tebow. To many of us this makes no sense. To some of us, it is a perfect fit… Hudson Hawk and Fieldsie love the move. Geez, 4 quarterbacks on the roster now— and add G.J. Kinne...

5 Reasons Why Tim Tebow Should Make the 53 Man Roster

1. Tim Tebow is better than Matt Barkley in Chip Kelly’s Eyes View image | gettyimages.com Matt Barkley has done nothing in his short time in Philadelphia.  It seems apparent that Chip Kelly doesn’t really think he fits into his scheme and that he hasn’t seen a ton of development in the kid, which explains his willingness to trade him. Tim Tebow is someone from...

Matt Barkley solidifies himself as the third quarterback

If there were any doubts about Matt Barkley making the Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster, he silenced his critics on Thursday night. Barkley, the product out of USC, played very well against the New York Jets. It was his best performance of the preseason as he put to rest any conversation about a competition between him and G.J.

Eagles Open Practice and the Hall of Fame Game—it felt like a real NFL Sunday…

One impression I had coming out of the New York Giants-Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame game in Canton on Sunday night was how much better the Eagles’ backup QB’s are than the Giants’ or the Bills’. By “better” I mean more experienced and polished. For example, the Giants’ backup Ryan Nassib (whom we can claim as one of our own from Malvern Prep) looked tentative in the pocket...

I followed up on our esteemed Bored Chairman’s (GK Brizer’s) suggestion that one of the main objectives of OTA’s and minicamp is to push your regulars and your prospects into situations of failure.
