Why the Eagles Could Still Trade For Marcus Mariota

Photo: Ryan Kang/AP Images As of this time, I still believe there is a chance that the Eagles will make a trade for Marcus Mariota.  The Eagles, and Chip Kelly himself, are doing their best to sell us on the notion that Sam Bradford is “the guy.” What I’m starting to think is that Bradford is really the “fall-back guy.” He will be the guy, but only if they can’t get...

The Case for Landon Collins

Could Landon Collins be the enforcer we’ve been lacking? Photo: Ben Queen/WVMetroNews photo Now that I have your attention with some highlights, the Philadelphia Eagles’ biggest need on the team is clearly Safety. The case can be made for Guard, Wide Receiver, as well as Quarterback if you wanted to, but I think it’s clearly the Safety spot across from Malcolm Jenkins. So...

Undrafted Free Agent Targets For Eagles

Every year at the end of the NFL draft every team grabs a handful of NFL hopefuls and add them to the rosters. These are all players that did things well in college, but for whatever reason, just weren’t up to standards on earning a draft pick. Currently on the roster the Philadelphia Eagles employ Trey Burton on special teams who was an UDFA last year. So, who’s this years Trey...

Talk Yourself Into Sam Bradford Yet? The Power of Suggestion

When the Eagles traded Nick Foles for Sam Bradford, what was your very first reaction?  Be honest, what were your initial thoughts on the news immediately after finding out? If you were like most people, you had some variation of a “WTF?!” reaction. Shocked.  Disbelief.  Anger.  Bewilderment.  Denial. Those would describe the vast majority of reactions to the move that I...

Eagles Mock Draft Post Free Agency

Now that Chip Kelly has finished razing what was left of the Andy Reid Eaglesand attempts to rename the Eagles the Ducks (joking) we can take a look at the aftermath and see what we think the team should do moving forward. I do think the Eagles have enough cap space for one more FA acquisition and I think it’s a pretty simple one as well. The Eagles need to add a lower tier WR...

The Evan Mathis Situation

Rumors have started to swirl that now, Chip Kelly, head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, is considering trading All-Pro LG Evan Mathis. Evan Mathis was a bit of a diamond in the rough that Howie Roseman found for the Eagles back in 2011 when he signed a one year prove it deal. After the pre-season ended, Mathis earned the starting gig and it’s all been uphill since there. Since...

A Quick Look at the Injury Histories of DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews

Both Ryan Mathews and DeMarco Murray are in Philadelphia today.  Mathews had reportedly agreed to a deal but hasn’t actually signed yet.  It could be that everyone is #WaitingOnDeMarco. So, while we wait, I thought it would be fun to look at their injury history.  Which player would you want? *Murray only has 36 more career touches than Mathews and just four months separate...

Sam Bradford is the End Game? If So, Chip Kelly Was Fleeced in Trade Value

Fair trade? Photo: In an utterly shocking turn of events, Chip Kelly and the Eagles traded for Sam Bradford just moments after the start of the official free agent signing period.  After the news broke there was about two or three hours of confusion as to what the trade details were. At first it was thought the Eagles and Rams had swapped first round picks...

First Jackson, Now Maclin and McCoy Are Gone…Is It Panic Time?

In the past 12 months, the Eagles have now lost their three biggest offensive playmakers: DeSean Jackon, LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin.  Jackson and McCoy were by choice but Maclin himself chose to leave for more money. No matter what the reason, we have now lost what was just recently our big trio of offensive skill players.  What the hell is Chip doing?!?!?!?! Although it...

After Losing Out on McCourty, Eagles Should Now Target Moore and House

The Eagles reportedly made a serious push for Devin McCourty and actually offered him more money than he received from New England, if you believe this report.  So, if that’s true, you can’t fault the Eagles for missing out on him, McCourty simply wanted to stay with the Pats. Byron Maxwell is reportedly set to come to Philly on a contract that he’ll never live up to ($25...

There’s other teams in the NFL with money to spend and needs at these same positions?  Tell me it’s not so!  Meh, who cares, the Eagles will still get their man (men)! Alright, alright…that’s...

Is Chip Kelly’s Scheme More Important Than the Individuals?

Photo: Rob Carr/Getty Images I went back and wanted to look at something today. It’s very well known that Oregon has never been abundant with NFL caliber talent until the Ducks started to actually win and recruit well (2011 and up). I wanted to see what kind of talent was actually on the team and where they stood statistically and if scheme really is more important than having...

The Case For the Kraken

Photo by Donald Miralle/Getty Images Now that the Kraken has been relieved of all drama attached to his year long suspension — that he unjustly had mind you since the case was thrown out — and in the wake of releasing Trent Cole, we should consider Greg Hardy. It’s no secret that there are a ton of question marks at the OLB position for the Eagles. Trent Cole was on the decline...

Smoke Signals Pointing to an Eagles-Bucs Trade For the No. 1 Pick?

Potential Eagles Draft Targets – Defensive Backs

There will be some new blood coming in via free agency, but as we’ve learned recently...

Possible Trade Targets For Eagles

Free Agents That Could Interest the Eagles

2015 Eagles Mock Draft With Trades Involving Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy

In the immortal words of Dee Snider from Twisted Sister: “I Wanna Mock!”  Or was that “Rock!”?  Meh, mock, rock…doesn’t matter, I like to do both but since this is an Eagles blog I suppose we’ll just stick to the mock for now. The NFL season is officially over so it’s time to start really focusing on free agency and, of course, the draft.  Doing a mock draft before...

As of Super Bowl Sunday, the Eagles currently sit at number 20 on the NFL’s first round draft board. However, whether they remain there is another story. Reports from multiple NFL circles indicate that Chip Kelly is not satisfied with going into 2015 with Nick Foles as his starter, and may be interested in bringing Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota on board. Kelly was himself famously...
