“Super” Reasons Eagles Need a First Round QB

Being that it’s Super Bowl week and that the Eagles’ biggest topic of discussion is about the QB position, I thought this would be a good time to look at some stats and history as it relates to quarterbacks and the Big Game. Please note that this article is not about the Eagles drafting Marcus Mariota in particular as much as it’s about them taking the plunge on a first-round...

Eagles Should Trade Up for Marcus Mariota: The “Why”, the “How” and Past Precedent

Should the Eagles trade up for Marcus Mariota?  That is the million dollar question that will be debated endlessly until draft day. It’s a fun topic because it is one that seems to be mostly divided between three groups: The “whatever it takes” group, the “it’s just not realistic” group, and the “no way would I give up the farm” group. The “whatever it takes...

Chip Kelly Must Make the Right Choice on Personnel Guy

Chip Kelly better pray he makes the right decision. AP Photo/Michael Perez Chip Kelly has now officially been handed the keys to the Eagles’ franchise.  His next move is to hire what’s initially being termed as a “personnel executive” to help him scout talent in both free agency and the draft.

How Chip Kelly Can Sway Things Back to His Favor

The recent news of Tom Gamble, the Eagles’ VP of Player Personnel, being fired came as a bit of a shock.  To me, it’s also more than just a shock, it could very well be a sign that Chip Kelly’s time in Philly could be short. After reading the numerous reports and insights of several Eagles beat writers, I’ve come away fairly convinced that this move was about a power struggle...

How About Josh Gordon or Torrey Smith For the Eagles?

We all know that the Philadelphia Eagles’ biggest needs are in the secondary.  And yes, they need to resign Jeremy Maclin and determine if they’re rolling with Nick Foles in 2015. But, there is another argument that even if we resign Maclin, we could use an upgrade at the No. 2 Wide Receiver position. My guess is that they’ll want to keep Jordan Matthews in the slot as much...

Chip Kelly’s Eagles: Why the Offensive Stats Don’t Match Observation

I suppose he has to be but the rest of Philadelphia has transitioned into offseason mode. One of Kelly’s responses...

Eagles’ Most Optimistic Path to Super Bowl XLIX

Eagles Dominate Dallas, Playoff Bye Week a Real Possibility

Photo: Tom Pennington/Getty Images The Eagles dominated the Cowboys and played their best game of the season against a quality opponent.  The scary thing is that it would have been even more lopsided had the Eagles performed better in the red zone. They were just 1 for 5 in converting touchdowns inside the 20.  Theoretically, had they scored TDs instead of kicking field goals...
