Darren Sproles Is An Eagle

The Shiny New WeaponIn another one of those small ball moves that the faithful like, the Philadelphia Eagles picked up Darren Sproles from the Saints for a fifth round pick. (The same one, I believe, that they got from the Patriots for nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga. So, um, for nothing.) Combine this with the pick up of FA CB Nolan Carroll from the Dolphins, and the team has clearly...

Do the Eagles really need to look elsewhere for a nose tackle?

As free agency approaches, talk around the Philadelphia Eagles is starting to focus on positions of need. On the defensive side, it seems that nearly every position has been mentioned as a position of need. While help with the secondary and pass rush are obvious keys, nose tackle has been cited as a position as well. The Eagles entered 2013 needing a nose tackle for the first time...

Why the Eagles will probably add a run stuffing, gap eating nose tackle in the offseason

The Eagles drafted NT Bennie Logan, a promising LSU product in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. The rookie began the season as a backup to Isaac Sopoaga, but impressed the coaches enough to snatch the starting NT position after only eight games (Sopoaga was shipped to NE for a sixth round pick). Logan is one of the more athletic NT’s in the league, and showed the ability...

The Eagles’ biggest disappointment in 2013

Safety Patrick Chung was awful in his first year with the Philadelphia Eagles. Brought in as a free agent last season, Chung wasn’t supposed to be the next Brian Dawkins—but he was expected to provide some sort of upgrade from what the Eagles had the previous year. Nate Allen hadn’t panned out as hoped, Jaiquawn Jarrett was a bust and Kurt Coleman was nothing more than depth...
