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...

Almost 24 hours following the Philadelphia Eagles’ humiliating 53-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, I’m still struggling to find the words to describe the game. So let’s see what others are saying.

Can the Philadelphia Eagles put an end to Aaron Rodgers’ streak of perfection at home? The Philadelphia Eagles face a massive test in playing the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field this Sunday.

Philadelphia Eagles survive heart attack-inducing late comeback from St. Louis Rams

The Eagles turned a game that should have put the St. Louis Rams away early into a contest that went down to the wire. Once holding a commanding 34-7 lead, the Rams went on a 21-0 run in the second half to come to an uncomfortably close 34-28. All this while St. Louis was led by Austin Davis, a quarterback making only his fourth start. The cartoon above perfectly illustrates the...

Morning Muse: Do the San Francisco 49ers have the edge over the Philadelphia Eagles?

The Philadelphia Eagles face off against the San Francisco 49ers this afternoon and “experts” don’t anticipate that the Birds will do well. The fact that a strong 49ers team has the 6th-ranked defense in the league and is off to an uncharacteristic 1-2 start doesn’t help matter. This is a must-win game for them, and at home, and Philadelphia has had to travel cross country–all...
