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...

Wild ride sees Philadelphia Eagles land on top in opener against Jacksonville Jaguars

Chip: ‘I booed myself’ It was truly a tale of first halves. The first half was a nightmare; the second half, a revelation. Seriously, weren’t they playing Jacksonville? Why were the Philadelphia Eagles such a mess? In the opening quarters of the game, Foles was unsteady, holding the ball too long. The confidence of last season seemed to elude him. His first half achievements...

Debunking the “missing piece” and “X-Factor” theories as Eagles take on Jags…

Why the Philadelphia Eagles secondary may be much better than you think

Coming into this season the biggest question mark for the Philadelphia Eagles is its secondary. You have probably heard by now that Philly was not very good at defending the pass in 2013. In fact, no team gave up more passing yards per game in the NFL (289.8.) Over the offseason the Eagles signed safety Malcolm Jenkins in order to establish leadership for the unit, but it’s another...

Eagles looking for improvement in pass defense

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Ten of the 11 likely starters on the Philadelphia Eagles defense appear to be the same as the unit that finished 29th in the league in overall defense and last in the league in passing defense.

Malcolm Jenkins’ leadership already paying off for Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles secondary in 2013 was a mess, lacking identity, leadership, and aside from improved play from cornerback Brandon Boykins, they struggled to hold their own. Early on in training camp, recently signed free agent Malcom Jenkins is already showing his worth. Jenkins signed a three year/ $16.25 million deal to come in and replace the void left by former safety...

OF THE 32 NFL teams, 19 have won the Super Bowl. That's 59 percent. The Eagles, of course, live among the 41 percent that have not.

Malcolm Jenkins brings stability to Eagles secondary

There are a lot of qualities that go into making a good free safety in the NFL. Speed, acceleration, agility, ball skills, leaping ability all play an important role, but the biggest one is awareness. A safety can have all of the athletic prowess in the world. If he gets caught napping for a fraction of a second or he misreads a deep route it will spell disaster for his defense nine...

What can Nick Foles bring to the Eagles this season?

When Chip Kelly brought his high-octane offense to the Philadelphia Eagles, people salivated over the prospect of quarterback Michael Vick spearheading the attack. The former number one overall pick with the speed of a wide receiver looked to be a natural fit in Kelly’s offense. However, after an injury in Week 5 last season, Vick never regained the starting job and is now with...

Malcolm in the Middle of Eagles preseason speculation…

I heard a remarkable statistic the other day, that the Eagles defense in 2013 was on the field 210 more total plays than any other team in the league. Can that stat be possibly true? Am I “mis-remembering” it? That would be the equivalent of two extra games that the defense had to play. Before I spend hours trying to look it up, let’s just say the Eagles defense in 2014 will...
