  1. Why aren’t the Eagles trading for [Player Z from Mars]?

    Sep 24, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    howie

    Two-time All-Pro safety Jairus Byrd is stuck in Buffalo playing on a one-year deal thanks to the franchise tag, and he seemingly wants out. The Eagles are desperate for so much as a capable safety, so why doesn’t general manager Howie Roseman pick up the phone and make that call? The Cleveland Browns just shipped…

  2. Claude Giroux: ‘If it was the regular season, I’d have been playing’

    Sep 24, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    giroux

    That’s Claude Giroux’s sweater in his locker stall. He’ll suit up in a game on Tuesday night for the first time since the infamous pitching wedge incident, as the Flyers play their penultimate preseason game against the New Jersey Devils. Whether Giroux was going to skate—or should for that matter—was a topic of discussion all…

  3. The time Michael Vick outdueled Peyton Manning

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    A lot of us—myself included—are just about ready to chalk up the Eagles’ trip to Denver this Sunday as another loss. The Birds have their share of flaws, but Peyton Manning has been simply masterful so far this season. You could argue he’s never been surrounded by so much talent before in his 16-year career,…

  4. NCAA announces Penn State to get some football scholarships back early

    Sep 24, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT

    Navy Penn St Football

    It’s been little more than a year since the NCAA handed down one of its stiffest penalties of all-time, but it seems college athletics’ governing body is finally ready to ease up on Penn State. On Tuesday it was announced the sanction the program’s football scholarships will be gradually restored over the next few years—earlier…

  5. Random Eagles Thoughts: 1-2, Time of Possession, and Mike Vick

    Sep 23, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    chip-vick

    On Being 1-2 Expectations are on a roller coaster. They started low before the season got underway, climbed exponentially after the Eagles throttled Washington in Week 1, now we’re down in the dumps after consecutive losses. All the while, how good this team actually is likely still lies somewhere in between. That said, their 1-2…

  6. After Matt Read Extension, Brayden Schenn the Only Young Flyers Forward in Need of Deal

    Sep 21, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    Brayden Schenn, Matt Read

    There’s nothing overly provocative about the four-year, $14.5 million extension the Flyers finalized with Matt Read on Friday evening. For once general manager Paul Holmgren didn’t sign a player into his late 30s, so we can all be grateful for that. The hockey community seems to stand in agreement this is nice value for a…

  7. Video: Andy Reid So Happy He Could Literally Kiss the Philadelphia Media

    Sep 20, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    reid-gatoade

    Call me an Andy Reid apologist, but I found it hard to be overly upset about the Eagles’ 26-16 loss on Thursday mainly because Big Red was so damn happy about it. Between the standing ovation a beautiful Philly crowd gave the head coach of 14 years and the Gatorade shower the Chiefs players gave…

  8. Vick: ‘I take sole responsibility’ for loss to Chiefs

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:00 AM EDT

    vick-sole

    Vick: “I take sole responsibility for what happened tonight. I didn’t execute.” — Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) September 20, 2013 That’s awfully noble of you, Mike. Don’t get me wrong, you deserve some of the blame, but there is plenty of it to go around the Eagles’ locker room after their 26-16 loss to the Kansas…

  9. Eagles-Chiefs: Commence The Andy Bowl

    Sep 19, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    big-red

    It’s rare when any game on the Eagles’ schedule takes on an air of meaning larger than any against, say, the Cowboys or Giants. Maybe this isn’t it quite on that level either, but there is certainly a greater feeling of importance surrounding tonight’s contest than a regular season meeting against the Kansas City Chiefs…

  10. On the Legacy of Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb in Philadelphia

    Sep 19, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    MCNABB REID LURIE

    Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb probably aren’t as polarizing in Philadelphia as they often seem. There is just this extremely vocal minority that refuses to display any appreciation—or even a modicum of respect in some cases—for the two men who were the faces of the Eagles’ franchise during the greatest era in the organization’s history.…

  11. Randall Cunningham II Might Turn Out Better Than the Original

    Sep 19, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    RANDALL CUNNINGHAM CUNNINGHAM

    A few months back, the National Football Post had a little story about a high school quarterback from Las Vegas named Randall Cunningham II – your eyes do not deceive you, Randall has offspring. We picked it up, and the RC2 sensation began sweeping Philly. Cunningham II is still in high school, but he’s already…

  12. The Eagles Made Dubious History in Their Loss to the Chargers

    Sep 17, 2013, 5:27 PM EDT

    nate-allen-file-photo

    Now that we’ve had a couple days to reflect on the Eagles’ 33-30 loss in their home opener on Sunday, I actually feel quite a bit better about it. Sure, the defense is an utter mess, but despite conceding 419 yards and three touchdowns through the air to quarterback Philip Rivers and forcing just one…

  13. These Still Frames of Home Plate Collision Give New Meaning to the Term ‘Dom Bomb’

    Sep 17, 2013, 3:08 PM EDT

    dom-bomb-f

    Somewhat lost amid Cliff Lee’s masterful execution on the baseball diamond in Monday night’s 12-2 victory was the vicious collision at home plate between Domonic Brown and Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis. Advantage: Dom. Brown dropped his shoulder heading into home and absolutely obliterated Mathis on this play in the third inning, leaving his feet as…

  14. Andy Reid Confident… That He Can Find Visiting Sideline at the Linc

    Eagles beat writers piled into a room at the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday to speak to Andy Reid – on the phone. The Birds’ head coach of 14 years returns to Philly with his Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night in a game that is sure to bring back feelings of nostalgia all across the…

  15. Oh Hey, the Flyers Played a Preseason Game Yesterday

    Sep 16, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    meszaros

    It would be remiss if we did not point out that the Orange & Black returned to the ice on Sunday in a sanctioned NHL game. There’s no lockout this fall because 2013 is an odd-numbered year that ends on a Tuesday, as stipulated by the collective bargaining agreement and commissioner Gary Bettman’s book of…

  16. The Eagles Could’ve Had Colin Kaepernick According to Report

    Sep 16, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    kap

    Interesting timing for Michael Vick to come out and set a new career high with 428 yards through the air against the Chargers. Little more than an hour before the contest, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Eagles had almost traded for one NFL starter one year earlier, and had designs on drafting another. In case…

  17. The Eagles Need Safety at Help: Wait… No, That Sounds About Right

    Sep 16, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    nate-facemask

    It’s been so long since Philadelphians have experienced good safety play, they might not recognize it if they saw it. On the other hand, we’ve become connoisseurs of sorts when it comes to bad safety play, and Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field was something of a tasting festival. I’m not going to add too much…

  18. Vick Throws for Career High 428 Yards in Loss to Chargers

    Sep 15, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    eagles-chargers

    Good news: Michael Vick looked fantastic for the Eagles under center. Bad news: Philip Rivers wasn’t coming off of an ACL injury, nor did the opposing quarterback miss all of the preseason. The Birds’ defense didn’t get the job done against Rivers quite the same way they did versus Robert Griffin III in Washington last…

  19. Eagles Gameday T-shirt: What Would Reggie White Do?

    We’re being told this was the hot T-shirt at Eagles tailgates today for the home opener at Lincoln Financial Field.

  20. Key Mismatches Favor the Eagles in Week 2 Versus the Chargers

    Sep 14, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    celek-sd

    Breaking down matchups the Eagles could potentially exploit against their upcoming opponent was often an exercise in futility during the Andy Reid era. It didn’t matter whether the Raiders had the 32nd-ranked run defense in the NFL or winds were gusting up to 60 miles per hour in Cincinnati. The Birds were throwing the football.…

  21. David Montgomery OK with Timing of Charlie Manuel’s Firing

    Sep 12, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    Charlie.Manuel

    Matt Gelb has a wide-ranging interview with David Montgomery in Thursday’s edition of The Inquirer. The Phillies president gives general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. a vote of a confidence – much to your delight – and talks the organization’s upcoming TV deal. But what we really want to know almost a month after the fact…

  22. So Is Dan Cleary Joining the Flyers or Not? Who Knows

    Sep 11, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    cleary

    Here’s an already somewhat weird story getting weirder. Yesterday there were reports that the Flyers had agreed to a three-year contract with Dan Cleary, only they couldn’t actually complete the deal because they are over the salary cap. The work-around was bringing the 15-year veteran in for a “tryout,” then once the season started and…

  23. Should the Eagles Trade Vinny Curry?

    Sep 11, 2013, 3:03 PM EDT

    curry

    There was a lot of surprise and disappointment when Vinny Curry’s name popped up on the inactive list for Week 1. The 2012 second-round pick was coming off a monster preseason where it appeared at times as if he was unstoppable, but on Monday he found himself caught up in the numbers game again. Chip…

  24. Vick and McCoy’s Usage Should be Monitored During Early Portion of Schedule

    Sep 11, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    lesean.mccoy

    The Washington Redskins defense weren’t the only ones who looked completely exhausted by the end of the Eagles’ 33-27 win on Monday night. Michael Vick was hit seven times on dropbacks and ran nine times with the football, and was noticeably hobbled in the final minutes. By his career-high 31st carry, LeSean McCoy practically needed…

  25. DeSean Jackson Owns the Redskins, Says Defenses ‘better get in shape’

    Sep 10, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    desean-hall

    Among the most positive signs from the Eagles’ 33-point offensive outburst on Monday night had to be the performance of DeSean Jackson, at least as far as individuals are concerned. Coming off of consecutive seasons with declining numbers, the two-time Pro Bowler showed he’s ready to serve as the torchbearer for the wide receivers in…
