Next Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach: Offensive or Defensive?

If, in fact, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid is fired at season’s end, we’ll be in the market for a new leader on the grid iron.  Besides the aspects of personality characteristics, track record and reputation, one big question is whether or not we should bring in an offensive or defensive-minded head coach. And furthermore, does that matter? Well, since winning the...

Philadelphia Eagles Fans’ Dilemma: Root For Wins or Better Draft Position

Unfortunately, the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season has reached the point of a real dilemma: Do we root for a win every week because that’s what we should do, as fans — or — is a better position in the 2013 NFL draft more important (which means they need to lose)? I guess the better question is what you would prefer: Getting a few more wins or just continue watching this team...

Jason Babin Just Another Example of How Andy Reid Changed

One year removed from an 18-sack season, Philadelphia Eagles DE Jason Babin was abruptly released yesterday.  I don’t mean to pile-on here, but I can’t say I’m sad to see him go. In fact, I was very surprised they signed him (again) in 2011. I normally do not play the “I told you so” game, but…I told you so.  Back in June of 2011, I wrote an article saying why I didn’t...

If MNF is Won, Eagles Still Have Chance Against Cowboys

If MNF is Won, Eagles Still Have Chance Against Cowboys By SBRForum.com Just about everything has fallen into place the way that the Philadelphia Eagles needed it to in Week 12, with the lone exception being a Giants victory. So many of the teams around them have dropped, and if they can beat the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football, next Sunday’s game against the Dallas...

Eagles vs. Panthers Week 12: The “Real” Preview

The 3-7 Philadelphia Eagles take on the 2-8 Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football in scintillating Week 12 action.  I’m sure this “battle of the disappointments” isn’t what the schedule-makers had in mind when they put this on the calendar last spring. It was supposed to Cam Newton, the rookie sensation in 2011, versus the resurgent Michael Vick.  The Panthers appeared...

Jeff Lurie Should Fire Andy Reid Now if He Insists on Going Back to Vick

Ever since Michael Vick went down with his concussion, I’ve been pounding the drum that Nick Foles should remain the Eagles’ starting QB for the rest of the season, regardless of how he or the team performs. I even went so far as to say that Andy Reid would be selfish not do so. Before all the Vick lovers come crying, this is not about him.  My reasoning for starting Foles is...

A Philadelphia Eagles Thanksgiving: What We Can Be Thankful For

It’s true that this 2012 Philadelphia Eagles team has played more like the prey, rather than birds of prey, but in the spirit of Thanksgiving I thought it would be better to take a look at the positive side of things. There hasn’t been much to cheer about this season, unfortunately.  And, we’re facing a future with the most uncertainty since after the 1998 season.  However...

The Eagles Need an Entirely New Secondary in 2013

The Philadelphia Eagles could have four new starters in the secondary next season.  Nnamdi Asomugha, DRC, Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman could, and perhaps should, be gone after this year, albeit for different reasons. Whether it’s coaching or just a dysfunctional mesh of personalities, these guys can’t communicate on the field with one another and/or they just plain stink. How...

For Eagles, Foles Not the Answer Either

For Eagles, Foles Not the Answer Either By SBRForum.com There’s only so many things that a head coach can change about his team before he has to go, and the Philadelphia Eagles look like they’ve hit that point. The men from the City of Brotherly Love have lost six games in a row and now have failed to cover five in a row. They have changed defensive coordinators and have changed...

Decision-Making by Andy Reid in Week 11 Was Almost Criminal

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid and his team have hit rock bottom after a completely demoralizing loss to the Redskins.  To boot, there were several questionable decisions made in yesterday’s game that reek of a man who just doesn’t know what to do anymore. First, the decision was made to start Jake Scott over an active Danny Watkins at right guard.  Scott had not...

Philadelphia Eagles Rookie QB Nick Foles: 8 Things We Need To Learn

The remainder of the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles season should be all about whether or not Nick Foles is the future of this franchise.  Assuming he plays for the rest of the season, there are some things we can look for in order to determine if he is, in fact, the future. If there is to be anymore excitement generated by the Eagles, it will be due to the play of Foles and how it energizes...

Will Playing Nick Foles Behind Eagles’ Horrible OL Jeopardize His Development?

Photo: Getty Images Since Philadelphia Eagles rookie QB Nick Foles is slated to make his first career start this Sunday, and perhaps play the remainder of the 2012 season, I’ve had a few people bring up the David Carr debate as a reason not to let him play yet. What do I mean by that?  In case you didn’t know or need a memory refresher, David Carr was the No. 1 overall pick...

Andy Reid Would be Selfish Not to Start Nick Foles For Rest of Season

After a game against the hated Cowboys in which the Eagles found a new way to lose, it effectively ended any slim hope that they could turn this season around.  Maybe they’re...

If Andy Reid is Fired, Should the Eagles Rebuild or Maximize Current Roster?

The notion that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid will be fired at the end of this season is gaining momentum.  Barring a miraculous turnaround, that’s exactly what will happen come January. Assuming that’s the case, the next question will obviously be: Who’s our next head coach? The two hot names out there right now being mentioned as potential replacements are Sean...

Marty Mornhinweg says the Eagles’ offensive red zone problems can be fixed.  Todd Bowles says the current problems on defense, including tackling, are fixable.  Howard Mudd says the...

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid used to be the man with a plan.  That was his reputation from the day he interviewed with Jeff Lurie and Joe Banner about the Eagles’ vacant head coaching position in 1999. Reid was a relative unknown at the time because he was just a quarterbacks coach in Green Bay.  However, Lurie and Banner noted how impressive he was during the interview...
