Eagles' offensive tempo is more myth than reality

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Tempo. Chip Kelly made a name for himself by utilizing that offensive weapon at the University of Oregon. He landed an NFL coaching gig because of it. But a misconception exists about the offense Kelly brought with him from Eugene to Philadelphia.   "They actually run their offense much slower than (Chip) did at Oregon," Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson...

"He has good accuracy. He has...

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Maybe we're examining Todd Bowles' head coaching credentials too much as we speculate about how soon the Cardinals' 50-year-old defensive coordinator will climb the next rung in his career.  Maybe we're complicating the process as we wonder whether he'll excel in that position like he has in his current job. "I don't worry about being...

Game of the week breakdown: Eagles could expose Cardinals

When NFL coaches break down game tape to prepare for an upcoming matchup, they study the opponent’s last three or four games. What they see there strongly influences how they’ll plan their attack.
