Morning Muse: Former Eagles DC Todd Bowles new head coach for Jets

It’s the offseason, which means that draft talk is in full swing. Will the Eagles make moves to get Marcus Mariota is the talk of today and every day. It won’t be quelled until draft day actually arrives, and we will collectively discover the answer in grand fashion. Read my lips: Marcus Mariota will not be drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles. No way, no how. It’s a fun fantasy...

With front office moves, Philadelphia Eagles ride or die with Chip Kelly

It has been several days since the Philadelphia Eagles’ front office turmoil ended with a restructuring that resulted in the promotions of former general manager Howie Roseman and head coach Chip Kelly.

Morning Muse: Eagles teammates have faith in Nick Foles

It’s the last day of 2014, and the Philadelphia Eagles are already settling into the reality of the offseason. After their 34-26 win over the Giants on Sunday, all was said and done for their season. The team once again found itself with a 10-6 record, but this time with no playoff berth. So, instead of cheering on the Birds, our joy this weekend will be rooting for the Detroit...

Happy Holidays from Philly Sports Muse

Philly Sports Muse wishes you and yours all of the blessings of the holiday season. Here’s to peace, love...

Morning Muse: Eagles' December meltdown complete with elimination from playoffs

The Philadelphia Eagles will not be ending the 2014 season with a playoff run. That reality was cemented after the Dallas Cowboys’ 42-7 blowout victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. The outcome is not surprising, as the Birds made their playoff odds infinitely more difficult with their loss 27-24 loss to the Redskins on Saturday. And the total December implosion of...

Philadelphia Eagles uninspired, undisciplined in critical loss to Washington Redskins

Sanchez Inaction Figure, via @RobTornoe of the Inquirer There are few times when I am rendered speechless, but the Philadelphia Eagles’ 27-24 loss to the lowly Washington Redskins–with absolutely everything on the line–has left me as such. As RG3 , DeSean Jackson and Jay Gruden yuk it up, celebrate the win and agree to let bygones be bygones, Philadelphia has some serious...

Philadelphia Eagles can’t hang on in loss to Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys got out to a quick 21-0 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles, a nightmare beginning to the rematch of the NFC East rivals. The 24 unanswered points then scored by the Birds in the second and third quarters were a rousing flash of the team we saw on Thanksgiving Day. Then came the final collapse, where Philadelphia ultimately fell 38-27 to Dallas at the Linc. We waited...

Morning Muse: Many reasons for concern after Philadelphia Eagles’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks

LeSean McCoy passed Philadelphia Eagles legend Wilbert Montgomery’s franchise all-time rushing record in his team’s 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. That may be about the only good news to report from the ugly defeat at the Linc. In a game that matched the NFL’s number one defense with one of its top offenses, Seattle’s D was too much for Philadelphia to overcome...

Connor Barwin on award: ‘People are taking notice of our defense’

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin had a hell of a November. He was a sacking beast, leaving opposing quarterbacks little chance to remain on their feet. His feats were noticed around the NFL, with Barwin named as the NFC Defensive Player of the Month on Thursday. It is the second time that Barwin has received the honor in his NFL career, the first with the Eagles. In Barwin’s...

Morning Muse: Misery for the rest of the NFC East edition

There was no Philadelphia Eagles football this Sunday, which gave Birds fans more of a chance to peak in on the action around the NFL. And laugh at the misery of the rest of the teams in the NFC East, none of whom had pleasant game experiences on Sunday. Mean? Perhaps. But it’s a Monday after a holiday weekend. You get a pass for delighting in the pain of others. Were you longing...

Preview: Eagles seek to throttle Titans

After the beating the Philadelphia Eagles received from the Green Bay Packers last Sunday, the Titans are the sort of opponent the Birds hoped to see. It’s no secret that 2-8 Tennessee isn’t a very good team. 7-3 Philadelphia should beat them handily. They need to get another win in the books to fully shake off what happened in Green Bay, and then focus all attention on their...
