Philadelphia Eagles flying high after total shutout of New York Giants

The Philadelphia Eagles head into their bye week flying on the highest note possible: On the heels of total shutout of those New York football Giants 27-0. 27-zip. 27-to-nada. However you say it, the score is beautiful. This is the game when LeSean McCoy finally got going, notching 149 rushing yards. The tight ends got into the act, with Zach Ertz and James Casey both getting in...

Week 5 wrap-up: Philadelphia Eagles vs. St. Louis Rams

After suffering their first loss of the season against a mighty San Francisco 49ers team, the Philadelphia Eagles barely escaped with the victory as they defeated the St. Louis Rams at home by the final score of 34-28. Just like last week, the Eagles special teams made their presence known in a big way.  After the Eagles defense forced a three-and-out on the Rams first offensive...

The question marks: 3 players with cloudy futures for the Philadelphia Eagles

It is still a transitional time for the Philadelphia Eagles in their second season under head coach Chip Kelly. Just because the time is considered a contender this season does not mean there is a finished product on the field. The offense may not yet have a franchise quarterback and the defense still lacks a full roster of 3-4 players. Some of these are obvious: outside linebacker...

The state of the Philadelphia Eagles defense heading into 2014 season

A lot of the focus heading into the Philadelphia Eagles’ season opener against Jacksonville is going to be on how Nick Foles follows up his Pro Bowl season, how the offensive line fares without Lane Johnson, and how the young receiving corps performs. But the Eagles defense is at an interesting point after the 53-man cuts and will provide plenty of intriguing storylines throughout...

Kelly on getting Curry with the starters: It was a big thing

Vinny Curry has been arguably the Eagles’ most consistent pass rusher this preseason, and yet, he has spent most of his time with the second team defense. That changed on Friday night when the defensive end was awarded some snaps with the starters. The Eagles have been reluctant to play Curry more because he is still adjusting to playing two-gap football on run downs. But he...

The key to the Philadelphia Eagles’ pass rush lies with Vinny Curry

One of the biggest weaknesses in 2013 for the Philadelphia Eagles defense was their inability to get to the quarterback. Taking a quick glance at the nominal stats, it would appear that the Eagles’ defense was only slightly below average at pressuring the quarterback, considering that they were ranked 20th with 37 sacks. However, when taking a closer look at the numbers, they...

Eagles Need to Unleash Vinny Curry in 2014

It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Eagles need to improve their pass rush in 2014.  Adding first round rookie Marcus Smith to the pass rushing mix this year should help as well as the returning players being more comfortable in the scheme. But, after finishing 20th in sacks, 31st in sacks per pass play and 32nd in pass defense, there’s no denying that the defense needs more...

Radical diet change propels Vinny Curry

Sometime in March, Vinny Curry made perhaps the most wholesale change of his life. He stopped eating hamburgers, gave up on milk and made sure that nothing that entered his body could be categorized as red meat or dairy. This from a guy who couldn’t drive by McDonald’s without pulling in for at least one Big Mac, and most likely two. Since that day, Curry’s diet has been...

Pre-Draft Inventory Check: Part 5 of 8 – Defensive Line

In this eight-part series, I will break down, position-by-position, where the Eagles stand, how long-term their current situation is and the likelihood of a draft pick being spent on that position. Next up: The D-Line. The Starters: The Eagles are decent along the D-Line, albeit unspectacular. However, the group is so young that...

Injured last season, ’13 draft pick could improve Philadelphia Eagles’ pass rush

Broken down, the core of the Eagles defensive line is young and promising. With Cedric Thornton and Fletcher Cox on both ends, and a now heavier Bennie Logan in the middle, the front line of the team’s new 3-4 defense is starting to take shape. None of those players are older than 25. After that, there are question marks. Part of this has to do with the scheme. Guys like Vinny...

Eagles’ OLBs Brandon Graham & Vinny Curry Possibly On The Trading Block This Offseason?

Sheil Kapadia of Birds 24/7 was asked whether or not he believes the Eagles could consider trading one of the outside linebackers such as Brandon Graham or Vinny Curry this offseason. According to Kapadia, there’s a “decent chance” that Graham or Curry gets traded at some point in the next few months. Kapadia mentions that there has been some confusion regarding how many...

Fletcher Cox. Cedric Thornton. Vinny Curry. Bennie Logan. All key contributors on the defensive line, and all no older than 25. A unit that wasn’t the best in 2012, the defensive line quickly emerged as one of the better units on the entire team in 2013. Even when the Eagles’ defense was struggling early on last year, the defensive line was still played pretty well. They’ll...

Weekly Vinny Curry Update

In a snowy afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field, our hero, wearing number 75, continued his strong play. Curry played 18 snaps, which appears to be a set back, was not when the Eagles defense was on the field for just 58 defensive plays. The defense end played in 31 percent of the plays, which is his normal playing time. Pressure was at a premium, while time in the pocket was not...

Eagles Defensive Lineman Proves Philadelphia is Still the City of Brotherly Love

Football is a violent game. It's one that does not lend itself to signs of love and affection during play--especially when referees are involved. No one loves the ref. In fact hatred of them is typically the only thing that players from both teams can agree on.  But those guys do a tough job; one that is thankless and no matter what will result in someone getting angry...
