Nate Allen has the measurables--- people tend to forget he has a low '40 time of 4.40 and a high '40 time of 4.59... that's pretty impressive speed for a safety.
I guess the biggest complaint in the past about Allen was he didn't know exactly where that speed should be on the football field at the most opportune time in a game.
Getting lost in a defensive...

This is the first pick that the Eagles have made that won’t be a lock to make the 53-man roster. Wolff will need to compete with Nate Allen, Kurt Coleman, and Colt Anderson for one of [...](Read more...)

The Philadelphia Eagles
are in need of secondary help this offseason, and they are one of the teams
that have expressed interest in free agent safety Laron Landry, according to

According to Zach Berman at the Philadelphia Inquirer, "It is "very unlikely" that the Eagles will use the franchise player tag on any of their seven unrestricted free agents, according to a league source. That group includes cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who was likely the only player under consideration.DRC wasn't exactly very hyped up when coming to...
Andy Reid is coaching all the way to the end with the Philadelphia Eagles.
That means making moves that might not be popular or might have been a longtime coming or both.
One of his most recent decisions is to bench safety Nate Allen, a second-round draft pick in 2010, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. The Eagles will roll with Kurt Coleman and Colt Anderson...
SecondaryTags: Howie RosemanNate AllenPhiladelphia EaglesFor years Eagles head coach Andy Reid has gone out of way to protect his players. He’s still doing that but not nearly as much. It could because he’s on his way out or there could be another reason. It could be a way to shine light on the poor job done by talent evaluator...
What is with everyone that thinks Howie Roseman should be fired and Jeff Lurie is disrespecting the fans by not addressing the media?
For weeks now, everywhere I turn I hear about how the Philadelphia Eagles should fire Roseman along with Andy Reid and everyone else at season's end. I also hear a lot of people seemingly angry at Lurie for remaining quiet while the team is crumbling...
For weeks now, everywhere I turn I hear about how the Philadelphia Eagles should fire Howie Roseman along with Andy Reid and everyone else at season’s end. I also hear a lot of people seemingly angry at Jeff Lurie for not coming out and addressing the media about the state of the franchise (or firing Reid before the end of the year).
Just this morning, these two subjects were...
The Philadelphia Eagles could have four new starters in the secondary next season. Nnamdi Asomugha, DRC, Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman could, and perhaps should, be gone after this year, albeit for different reasons.
Whether it’s coaching or just a dysfunctional mesh of personalities, these guys can’t communicate on the field with one another and/or they just plain stink.

The Eagles will be officially be without Danny Watkins for the 2nd straight week.
Watkins is inactive today against the Dallas Cowboys, meaning rookie Dennis Kelly will get his 2nd start of the season. It also means the Eagles will have only four of the five projected offensive line starters.

Safety Nate Allen was sidelined for Fridays practice with a hamstring injury.
This is a concerning development for the Eagles, who lack quality safety depth. Allen exited in the fourth quarter against Detroit with a hamstring injury a couple weeks back and it cost the defense.
Nothings finalized yet, said Allen. Were going to take it day-by-day and see how it feels...
Key to victory: Give Shady the ball. Image via Philly Sports Central
The Atlanta Falcons look pretty beatable for an undefeated team.
Their six wins have come against nary a winning team, .500 being the best record of an opponent they’ve faced this season. A 30-28 win in Week 4 against the Panthers or a 23-20 victory in Week 6 over the Raiders can’t exactly be described as impressive...
After two straight losses with the defense giving up the lead in the fourth quarter, the Philadelphia Eagles and Andy Reid decided to end the Juan Castillo defensive coordinator experiment for good. In a somewhat surprising decision to start last season, Reid not only moved the 13 year offensive line coach to the defensive side of the ball but him in charge of it. The results can...

Attention Juan Castillo: Whatever you do this week, make sure Larry Fitzgerald’s whereabouts are accounted for on every single snap he’s on the field. And make sure you relay this to Nnamdi, DRC, Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman as well.
In case you didn’t realize, Larry Fitzgerald absolutely loves playing the Eagles. We all know he’s one of the...

Eagles vs. Browns Week 1 Analysis
Expectations are sky high for the mega-talented Philadelphia Eagles, meaning they should have little trouble picking up the win over the Browns in Week 1.
