The Philadelphia Eagles are set up to be contenders for a long time

Like many Philadelphia Eagles fans, I emerged from Sunday’s debacle angry about many parts of the Eagles’ performance. I pondered for the last couple of days which part of the game I would end up writing about this week. Would it be about Nick Foles’ third bad performance in four games and an increasing doubt about his ability to sign long-term as the franchise quarterback...

Fantasy Outlook for Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy

This article was contributed by Emile Velocovic. Any way you slice it, Week 4 of the NFL regular season did not go exactly as planned for the Philadelphia Eagles. They were unable to really get anything going against the San Francisco 49ers, and fans of the franchise were certainly frustrated. In fantasy football, people are starting to actually panic in regards to the play of Nick...

Time for the Philadelphia Eagles to Panic?

Is it time for the Philadelphia Eagles to panic? No, probably not just yet. Should they be worried? In a word, yes. On October 2, 2011 the Philadelphia Eagles took a 20-3 halftime lead into the locker room at Lincoln Financial field against the visiting San Francisco 49ers. In the second half, they slowly and painfully watched that lead evaporate, eventually losing the game 24-23...

Brilliant tweet from Sunday’s game kills two Philadelphia Eagles with one stone

As if the Philadelphia Eagles loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday wasn’t bad enough, this tweet by @FauxJohnMadden put a stamp on the defeat. Here is the tweet that nailed both Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy in one shot: Nick Foles quarterback rating today lower than what LeSean McCoy tips a waiter. — Faux John Madden (@FauxJohnMadden) September 28, 2014 The Eagles offense...

Moving on from a stupid loss like Clark Gable in “Gone with the Wind”… Eagles focus turns to Rams

I tried to put the “coulda shoulda” of the 49ers game out of me mind last night by sitting down in front of the Turner Classic Network airing of “Gone With The Wind” (1939). Oh yes I was definitely guilty of switching my “back” to the MNF broadcast of the pasting the Chieves were giving to Tom Brady and the Patriots… But I had never watched the complete 3-hour saga...

Big Play Breakdown: Eagles at 49ers

There was common theme to two plays that altered the Eagles loss to the 49ers on Sunday. The film shows it perfectly. When the Eagles failed to score at the end of the game and when they allowed a crazy touchdown to Frank Gore, a mistake that was plain to see proved to be the key factor. That is the subject of this week's Big Play Breakdown. Frank Gore's 55-yard touchdown...

Nick Foles Has Terrible Outing vs. 49ers

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completed 21-of-43 passes for just 195 yards and two interceptions.Fantasy Spin:OK, everyone is allowed a bad day now and then ... except Peyton Manning. Foles couldn't do anything on offense and still had a chance to win the game on the final drive, but came up short. Credit the 49ers defense and move on.

Eagles vs. 49ers Aftermath: A Look at the Bright Side

Photo: Clem Murray/ Staff Photographer The blame for the Eagles’ loss to the 49ers lies squarely on the shoulders of the person who set off the fire alarm at 2:00am at the hotel where the Eagles were staying.  It wasn’t the offensive line, Nick Foles or Chip Kelly. It was the fire alarm setter-off-er!  Yeah, that’s it! Oh alright, I suppose more of the blame should...

Total failing by the Philadelphia Eagles’offense costs game against the San Francisco 49ers (VIDEO)

Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles offense could get nothing going against the San Francisco 49ers. With the many  questions surrounding what this Philadelphia Eagles team is and what it isn’t heading into the fourth game of the season, there was never a question about the offense. The 3-0 start showed that, regardless of the start, the Birds would and could generate points...

VIDEO: This one-handed circus catch by Jeremy Maclin is bananas

There weren’t a whole lot of highlight plays for the Philadelphia Eagles offense in yesterday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers. As a matter of fact, this might be the only one. That just makes it all the more important that we recognize this insane circus catch by wide receiver Jeremy Maclin. Check it out:   As an added bonus, Jim Harbaugh challenged the play and lost a timeout...

There is absolutely no reason to be worried about the Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles weren’t supposed to win in San Francisco yesterday. They were coming off a tough, emotionally draining division win, and traveling across the country to play a supposedly pissed of 49er team that dropped two straight. And yet there they were, down six points late in the fourth quarter, with first-and-goal from the six yard-line, in position to win the game...

Monday Review: Eagles offense gets a wake-up call

When the Eagles moved the ball into the redzone against the 49ers, you had the feeling that somehow, they were on their way to finding a way again. Reality is cruel, but the football gods finally handed the Eagles a loss they deserved. A five-point loss should not write off a season and it should not take away from the first three weeks. But it did finally provide a reminder everyone...

Terrible loss to 49ers by Eagles, 26-21…only because it was so winnable…

This was one for the books— San Francisco 26, Philadelphia 21… The tragedy for the Eagles is we had this one in the bag… We just couldn’t get an offensive flow going. The Eagles scored off a blocked punt, a return to the house on an INT by Malcolm Jenkins, and a punt return by Darren Sproles for a score. You get those kind of gifts, you should win a game against even your...

It looks like the hit that Chris Baker laid on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is going to have some long-term repercussions.

NFL Week 4 Picks: Nick Foles, Eagles’ Undefeated Record On Line Against 49ers

It’s rare for a highly anticipated matchup to live up to its billing like Denver Broncos-Seattle Seahawks did last week, so give Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson credit for delivering on our expectations. Apart from that overtime thriller, though, Week 3 was a relatively straightforward round for picks. All three “experts” posted double-digit win totals, even with...

Chris Baker gets vindication – and it tastes good

Ever since DL Chris Baker of the Washington Redskins was called for a personal foul and ejected from last Sunday’s loss in Philadelphia for taking a perfectly legal opportunity to blow up Eagles QB Nick Foles, I’ve wondered how it was that the referees in that game suddenly forgot the rules. Or just decided to dispense with them. Everyone knows, and I’m including referees in...
