Eagles Won in Week One But Paid a Huge Price

#455159856 / gettyimages.com Coming into their first game versus the Jaguars, many predicted it would be an easy victory for the Eagles. Philly was expected to rout Jacksonville on their way to their 4th consecutive 1-0 start. They did accomplish that, however it was not exactly how they drew it up.

Eagles overcome horrendous 1st half to outlast the Jags, 34-17…

There’s an old military quote from WWII, it had something to do with the Battle of the Bulge— maybe it was General Patton who said it, I’m not sure— but it went something like this: “Another victory like this and we are finished…” In other words, the Eagles won their home opener against a resilient opponent in the Jaguars on Sunday, but oh at what a cost! Injuries all...

Eagles rally from first half woes for win over Jaguars

Three turnovers allowed the Jaguars to open up a 17-0 lead at the half. But the Eagles returned to form in the second half, trimming the lead to three points before tying the game early in the fourth. With 34 unanswered points...

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

The hype is understandable. Eagles fans are desperate for a safety who can line his guys up and provide leadership in the secondary. Malcolm Jenkins (#27) is labeled the “missing piece” in that scenario. And then there are the “X-Factors” whom Dave Spadaro of PE.com has designated as the Birds’ secret weapons: Nolan Carroll—nickel/dime CB, KR…. Brandon Graham— OLB…...

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...

Philadelphia Eagles Training Camp Battles

Which of these top 10 safeties could the Philadelphia Eagles take in the NFL draft?

The Philadelphia Eagles may have signed Malcolm Jenkins, but there is still a need to add depth at the safety position. Nate Allen played better last year (although some failed to see this), but Earl Wolff was slowed by injuries almost all season. The Eagles have lacked a game-changer at the position since Brian Dawkins left, so getting back to that style of defense should be a priority...

Twitter reacts to the Philadelphia Eagles bringing back Nate Allen

One of the more maligned players over the last few seasons, safety Nate Allen will be back in a Philadelphia Eagles uniform next year. That’s not as bad as people are making it out to be, though. Allen struggled in his first three seasons, but he was used improperly and had to adjust to a new defensive coordinator every time. 2014 will be the first time in his career where he doesn’t...

Re-signing Nate Allen a No-brainer

Whatever your feelings on Nate Allen may be, bringing the 26-year old safety back on a one-year, $2 million deal was a no-brainer. I get that Allen isn’t the most popular Eagle. Frankly, I wouldn’t have complained if Allen never put on the Midnight Green ever again. But there are just too many reasons why the deal makes sense: 1. Allen was probably the best safety left on the...
