How would you grade the Eagles 2013 Draft?

With the 2013 NFL Draft almost in the books, I think it’s safe to start diagnosing and criticizing Howie Roseman and Co.’s 2013 draft class. After all, the latter is what we do best here in Philadelphia isn’t it? I’m not going to cover every draft pick in this article, I just want to talk about the most compelling three picks. Let’s get right to it. Lane Johnson I’m not...

Chip Kelly already flirting with replacing Vick, Foles

Chip Kelly has been in Mobile, Alabama for the Senior Bowl only a few days and he’s already flirting with the idea of bringing in a new quarterback.High on Kelly’s wish list is Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel, who Kelly recruited heavily while at Oregon, narrowly losing him to Florida State (Manuel wanted to stay closer to home). The two met and discussed some things, and...

Juan Castillo hired by Ravens, going to the Super Bowl

Just two weeks before the Super Bowl, Juan Castillo has been hired by Jim Harbaugh to be the Ravens “run game coordinator” the rest of this year, and will be retained next season as well.Good for him. Now I have even more reason to root for the Ravens in the Super Bowl.

Joe Banner continues his hate on the Eagles for hiring Chip Kelly

Excuse me Mr. Banner, step away from the hater-tots.In a statement made to Peter King in his Monday Morning Quarterback column on SI.com, Banner says quote:We removed ourselves from the process. We really liked Chip. He’s intriguing, a very different thinker, and very smart. But you could see he was uncertain what he wanted to do. He may be in Philadelphia 10 years or longer and...

Eagles reportedly hire Jerry Azzinaro as new defensive line coach

Wait, I thought you weren’t supposed to hire position coaches before you hire a defensive coordinator. Oh well.The Eagles will reportedly bring in Jerry Azzinaro as the new defensive line coach. Azzinaro coached defensive line at Oregon, and is a firey, passionate guy. Think of an Italian Jim Washburn, but slightly less crude.Given the fact that Jim Herrmann (who coached in a 4...

Should the Eagles run a 4-3 or a 3-4 defensive scheme?

As the Eagles search continues for their next defensive coordinator, several names have been mentioned, most recently Jim Herrmann, who is currently the linebackers coach for the New York Giants.Herrmann is known to be an “old school” defensive coach, and played and coached (defensive coordinator) under legendary Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler, who was about as “old school”...

The Eagles should draft Jarvis Jones with the 4th pick

At 6’3″ 240lbs, Jarvis Jones is the best linebacker in the country hands down. In fact, he might be the best defensive player in the country. With the 4th pick in this years draft, the Eagles should give strong consideration to drafting Jones, who would undoubtedly make an impact from day one. If the speculation that the Eagles are going to hire Todd Grantham and move to a 3...

Examining quarterback options for Chip Kelly’s offense

As I think through some of the possible options for Chip Kelly’s next quarterback, several names come to mind. Let’s take a look at Chip Kelly’s options. Nick Foles This seems to be the most realistic choice in my mind for several reasons. In...

NOT BREAKING NEWS: EAGLES HIRE CHIP KELLY AS HEAD COACH

Well, so much for Gus Bradley.In a complete curve-ball of a move, the Eagles have hired the now former Oregon head coach, Chip Kelly to lead them back to the promise land.Kelly, considered by many to be one of the most innovative offensive minds in the game, is coming into a somewhat messy situation with the Eagles.With uncertainty surrounding the quarterback position, most of the...

Mike McCoy should be the next head coach of the Eagles

With the end of the Andy Reid era on the horizon, many names have been floated out there as possible replacements for Reid. John Gruden, Bill Cowher, Nick Saban, Chip Kelly, Brian Kelly. We’ve heard all those names over and over again. Not many people are talking about Mike McCoy though. McCoy, who is currently the offensive coordinator with the Denver Broncos, has said to have...

The Eagles should trade LeSean McCoy

Today, I had a rather heated argument with a coworker. You’ll think I’m crazy, but just hear me out. The Eagles should trade LeSean McCoy. Not because he’s not good–he’s clearly a top 3 running back in the league, and he’s one of my favorite players. Because the Eagles have A TON of holes to fill, namely along the offensive and defensive lines, and they basically need...

DeSean Jackson on Nick Foles

I know as far as Nick Foles what he is capable of doing coming out of college from Arizona, he’s definitely a great quarterback. I think the sky’s the limit for him. He’s a talented player. He’s just hasn’t really gotten that opportunity, as far as this season.

Nick Foles must play if the Eagles have a chance. Yes he does.

Yes I just said that. I just said that a rookie quarterback must play if the Eagles have a chance to turn their season around. Just hear me out. Every one is saying that the Eagles were only a few wins away from being 5-1 before the bye, so why panic? Others are saying they were just a few losses away from being 0-6. I tend to agree with the ladder. Of the 3 wins the Eagles have...

My hate for Andy Reid is at an all time high

After having some time to digest the firing of Juan Castillo, my hate for Andy Reid is at an all time high–and if you look at my text exchange with one of my buddies, I’m clearly not the only one. I’m not the world’s most religious guy, but I truly believe that God is looking down over Andy Reid. Because there is no other way this man could have had the success he’s had...

Andy Reid Fires Scapegoat Juan Castillo

Well there you have it folks, Andy Reid is officially in desperation mode. Sure, it was Andy’s fault because he hired Juan Castillo in the first place, but who would have known (even Andy) that Juan Castillo would have been this bad. For someone who has been a “defensive guy” his whole life, Castillo never grasped the nuances of running an NFL defense. His mistakes were so...

Eagles pull rabbit out of their asses, beat Baltimore Ravens in comeback win

Well folks…there you have it. The Eagles are 2-0 and beat one of the most physical teams in the league. There is a lot to be happy about and a lot to be concerned about at the same time. One thing is for certain, the Eagles find ways to lose both of these games last year. They were just not wired to grind out and win close games. So what’s changed? Defense. For the first time...

These Angry Birds are the Real Deal

  Eagles sack Joe Flacco  Is it likely the 2011 Eagles defense tightens up enough to allow the offense to pull out back to back one point victories?  Uh,…na!  That defense coughed up fourth quarter leads like Donovan McNabb coughs up McRib sandwiches in Superbowl huddles.  But these Angry Birds are different. The long missing leader that this defense has been lacking just...

When Michael Vick is your quarterback, it’s a foregone conclusion that you’re going to have at least one or two turnovers. You can’t turn the ball over in the NFL period, but especially against a team that can move the ball like the Ravens. Throwing 4 interceptions against the Browns doesn’t...
