Eagles offense finally opens up vertical passing game

Through the first three weeks of the NFL season, the Philadelphia Eagles’ vertical passing game has been non-existent.

Bradford's tendencies could make Eagles more predictable

The Philadelphia Eagles offense has looked pedestrian in the first two games of 2015 compared to what it has looked like in years past. With six of the 11 starters being first-time number ones, the chemistry seems to be nonexistent and the offense has struggled to get its footing. The most important piece of the offense is obviously quarterback Sam Bradford. Bradford’s tendencies...

Should the Philadelphia Eagles get it over with and cut Riley Cooper?

Last year Riley Cooper of the Philadelphia Eagles was arguably the worst wide receiver in the NFL. Pro Football Focus ranked him dead last out of 110 wideouts. He was rated high as a blocker but his receiving rating (-12.7) was significantly lower than any other receiver’s.
