Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants: 2014 Week 17 NFL Pick

Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) at New York Giants (6-9) This line has flipped from Philadelphia being favored by 3 to New York being favored by 3 over the course of the past week, a huge line movement. I love fading huge line movements whenever it makes sense and it does here. Would this line have moved 6 points if Cody Parkey, who had missed 2 field goals all year coming in, didn’t...

Sanchez to start vs. Giants— all we are saying is give Barks a chance…

Nick Foles (Quick Draw McGraw) and Mark Sanchez (Baba Looey) were okay as a QB tandem for Chip Kelly’s offensive system— but I’d like to see Matt Barkley showcased in Week 17. Chip Kelly is going to start Mark Sanchez at quarterback against the Giants and play his regulars. I wonder if this means Kelly plans to ride into 2015 with the status quo duo of Foles and Sanchez...

RGIII still has a long way to go to reemerge as an NFL star

Robert Griffin III gave his most effective performance of the year against the Eagles last Saturday. That stats show it. The stats show something else, too. RG has yet to out-perform opposing quarterbacks in any game he has played this year. The papers are crushing Mark Sanchez today, but he played well enough to win. The problem is that he had “Romo disease” against the Redskins...

Three reasons that the Philadelphia Eagles unravelled this season

The Philadelphia Eagles were officially eliminated from the playoffs yesterday following a Dallas Cowboys victory that clinched the NFC East title. The 2014 season was one that began with such promise, especially when no NFL team had more wins than the Birds just a month ago.

Philadelphia Eagles: Playoff hopes dwindle with loss to Redskins

A side-by-side comparison of the box score minus team names and final score would indicate a fairly dominate performance by the team that had 190 more total yards, 9 more first downs, a larger time of possession, and an equal number of turnovers. However, the Eagles managed to put all of their inefficiencies and mistakes-prone areas on display in their 27-24 losing effort to the...

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper Angers Fantasy Owners Everywhere By Actually Playing Well

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper had become a decent option for fantasy owners after the way he and Nick Foles seemed to bond last season.
