Philadelphia Eagles GM defends choice to keep Chris Polk on roster

In my opinion the most perplexing move for the Philadelphia Eagles this week came when they decided to keep running back Chris Polk on the final 53 man roster, even after he did not play a single snap this preseason and several other backs made quite an impression. Matthew Tucker scored four touchdowns in August and that only earned him a spot on the team’s practice squad. Henry...

Barner joins a crowded Eagles backfield

The addition of Kenjon Barner only complicates the Eagles' running back situation, which will require difficult choices when the roster is cut to 53 on Aug. 30. Barner, a former Oregon standout acquired from the Panthers on Wednesday, is one of six running backs on the roster. LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles are the only locks. Chris Polk was well positioned at the start of...

Eagles shut out Steelers in 1st half, 17-0… go on to 31-21 victory…

I don’t know for sure whether the Steelers are that bad or the Eagles are that good… but it sure looked like the Eagles’ first and second units seem to be on the verge of coming together to become a very good team.
