Tales of Brave Chip-Ulysses as Eagles audition 16 DB’s…

Maybe this is the Eagles era we will remember on our deathbeds, and we will chant in unison, “Those Were The Days…” That would be nice— because it would mean all the sturm und drang stirred up by Chip Kelly over these past 3 years paid off—he has basically ripped apart the Reid/Banner “Gold Standard” and installed his own peculiar vision of what a championship-caliber...

Philadelphia Eagles secondary by the numbers

The Philadelphia Eagles enter the 2015 season with five new starters on the defensive side of the ball. With the hope that the new starters are improvements over their predecessors comes the uncertainty of cohesion with such an overhauled unit. Unfortunately, the 2015 season spends little time letting them figure it out. Last year’s secondary for the Eagles were at times more porous...

Photo Credit: The biggest positional need on the Eagles’ roster was safety heading into the offseason. Devin McCourty was the only targeted safety in free agency that the Eagles had serious interest in, so it comes as no surprise that the Eagles still have a void at the safety position after watching Devin McCourty re-sign in New England.

The Seattle Seahawks are not an ordinary Super Bowl champion. What they did in 2013 through Super Bowl Sunday is damn impressive.
