Denver Broncos make a round of cuts that includes 11 players

Cuts are one of the most difficult things for an NFL team to do. They’re necessary, though, and even tougher when the talent evaluators are deciding on which men to cut on a team as talented as the Denver Broncos. Following their third preseason game, a loss to the Houston Texans last night, the Broncos have announced 11 cuts. Here’s a look at them from denverbroncos.com: Pos...

(John Grieshop) The Atlanta Falcons made a couple of moves on Tuesday, signing veteran linebacker Thomas Howard and releasing linebacker Jamar Chaney.

Filling the Roster Spots: Falcons Sign LBs Chaney and Gaither, FB DiMarco

He has experience at all three linebacker spots, but Chaney will likely play on the outside with the Falcons. (Elizabeth Robertson) The Atlanta Falcons were forced to fill three roster spots after injuries ended the seasons of two players (Kroy Biermann and Bradie Ewing) and forced Sean Weatherspoon to be placed on injured reserve-designated to return. To offset the blows to the...

The Eagles should draft Jarvis Jones with the 4th pick

At 6’3″ 240lbs, Jarvis Jones is the best linebacker in the country hands down. In fact, he might be the best defensive player in the country. With the 4th pick in this years draft, the Eagles should give strong consideration to drafting Jones, who would undoubtedly make an impact from day one. If the speculation that the Eagles are going to hire Todd Grantham and move to a 3...

No love lost between the Philadelphia Eagles linebackers and the departure of the Wide-9

It was no illusion. The Philadelphia Eagles defense played better than they had in weeks in Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It couldn’t have all been because the death knell had been blown to the Wide 9 with the firing of Jim Washburn, could it? Not all, but it certainly didn’t hurt. The linebackers  felt that new d-line coach Tommy Brasher’s more traditional...

Punt returner Damaris Johnson and linebacker Jamar Chaney are among the inactives for the Eagles against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Chaney had started the last two games for the injured Akeem Jordan, who returned...

All things considered, I think the Eagles come out of the woulda-coulda-shoulda 16-14 loss to the Steelers in pretty good shape... Yeah, we should have beat 'em... I know we let them off the hook. Physicality was not the issue. And maybe that's the good news. We matched up pretty well against the supposedly "more physical" team. Maybe we failed to get off blocks...

Philadelphia Eagles: How Penalties on 3rd Down Impacted the 2011 Season

As a supplement to my previous article about the Philadelphia Eagles getting back to the basics, I wanted to throw in some penalty statistics that may be of interest…or concern. A reader brought up a point about getting killed with penalties on third-down last year that either kept the opponent’s drive alive, or thwarted our own drive.  Since I can remember that penalties...

Early Look at Philadelphia Eagles LB Depth Chart

One of the most intriguing roster battles on the entire Eagles roster this offseason is the competition for the starting three linebacker positions. Last year the Eagle linebacker situation was something of a train wreck. So far the Eagles have used this offseason to trade for 7 year veteran Demeco Ryans and drafted Mychael Kendricks in the 2nd round of the NFL draft. These additions...

I had forgotten how much fun OTA coverage can be for Eagles fans. We didn't get any OTA's or minicamps last year either...and we missed out on a lot. The NFL should realize by now it must at all reasonable cost avoid interruption of year-round events and coverage. There's too much fan interest to risk alienating it. For now, the league is getting a pass from fans on...
