The Philadelphia Eagles special teams must standout if they want to win the division

The Philadelphia Eagles are 5-7 are still in contention for the NFC East title. Sunday’s win against the New England Patriots saved their season, in large part because of the special teams getting two touchdowns: a blocked punt by Chris Maragos returned by Najee Goode for a touchdown to end the first half and a 83 yard punt return by Darren Sproles in the third quarter. Maragos...

Why the Philadelphia Eagles need more creativity at inside linebacker

I’ve been vocal since the early parts of the offseason that the Philadelphia Eagles were doing the right thing by spending most of their resources on building depth as opposed to finding a “superstar safety” like Jairus Byrd, now of the New Orleans Saints. The allocation of resources is a major part of team building, and the team was very thin at a lot of positions. With the...

Eagles Must Feel Good About Their Backup Inside Linebackers

The NFL Draft has come and gone and if there was one surprise, it was that the Eagles didn’t select an Inside Linebacker to potentially be DeMeco Ryans’ heir apparent.
