  1. 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…

  2. 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.

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

    Sep 14, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    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.…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Flyers to (Eventually) Sign Dan Cleary to ‘Baffling’ 3-Year Deal

    Sep 10, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT

    cleary

    Where to begin. Do we start with the Flyers’ always-maddening salary cap situation, which prevents them from physically signing anybody to an actual contract right this moment? Or should we talk about the multi-year deal the club is giving yet another player in his mid 30s? How ‘bout we just go with the news that…

  10. Hold Your Horses: Chip Kelly’s Debut Exaggerated by Floundering Redskins

    Sep 10, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    chip-vick

    One of the pressing questions for the Eagles heading into this season was what if Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense goes three and out, and their defense had to go back right on the field after they just came off? New question: what if the Birds’ opponent goes three and out on offense? The answer is…

  11. ENOUGH TALK: Eagles Finally Kick Off Chip Kelly Era in Washington Tonight

    Sep 9, 2013, 5:43 PM EDT

    vick-chip

    This is the day we’ve been waiting since before Chip Kelly was hired, when it was becoming apparent Andy Reid’s run was coming to an end. Some disgruntled followers have no doubt been waiting even longer. But the time has finally come for this Chip fella to show us why he was one of the…

  12. Vick: Eagles’ Offense ‘Something like you’ve never seen before’

    Sep 9, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    vick-jags

    We’re counting down the seconds until Chip Kelly unveils his offense for the entire NFL-watching world to see. Preseason offered only a glimpse into what the first-year head coach has in store for the Eagles; now it’s time see the real thing. If Michael Vick is to be believed, we’re in for a real treat.…

  13. Hal Gill a Long Shot for Flyers Roster, Just Happy to Be Here

    Sep 9, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    hal-gill

    Over the weekend we learned the Flyers invited 38-year-old defenseman and 15-year NHL veteran Hal Gill to training camp, which opens this Thursday already believe it or not. Given the problems the Orange & Black had in their own end last season, it’s good to see they are still looking into options even as the…

  14. Eagles-Redskins Storylines and Predictions: Can Birds’ D Keep RG3 and Alfred Morris from Spoiling Chip Kelly’s Debut?

    Sep 9, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    griffin-eagles

    Is RG3 Ready? There’s already more coverage of Robert Griffin III than you can shake a stick at – even I wrote about him last week – so chances are you’re sick of hearing about the Redskins’ quarterback. We won’t spend dwell on this, but it’s worth noting RG3 is only eight months removed from…

  15. 2013 Philadelphia Eagles: Predictions for All 16 Games

    Sep 5, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    mccoy-skins

    Week 1 at Washington – Win, 37-27 Chip Kelly shocks the world with his offense – by coming out and running the triple option out of the Flexbone on Monday Night Football. Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, and Bryce Brown combine to rush for over 300 yards against the Redskins, who are caught completely off-guard by…

  16. ESPN Writers Hate the Eagles, Love Andy Reid

    Sep 4, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    USA Today Images

    ESPN.com’s stable of NFL writers released their “expert” guesses predictions for the 2013 season ahead on Tuesday, and believe it or not, the Eagles didn’t receive a whole lot of love. Not a single one of them chose the Birds to come out on top in the NFC East this year, and by my count…

  17. The Flyers Cross Their Fingers on Simon Gagne

    Sep 4, 2013, 2:40 PM EDT

    gagne

    Paul Holmgren would probably love to have Simon Gagne back in Orange & Black this season. It’s just that the Flyers’ general manager’s hands are tied right now. As Sam Carchidi pointed out in Tuesday’s edition of the Inquirer, Philadelphia is roughly $1 million over the NHL salary cap at the moment. They’ll drop below…

  18. Nate Allen to Start at Safety for Eagles, but Earl Wolff Will Play

    Sep 4, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    nate-allen

    The Eagles have begun preparing in earnest for their Week 1 matchup with the Washington Redskins next week, but there was just one situation left to settle first. We had a fairly certain idea as to whom would be starting at 21 of the 22 spots on offense and defense, but who won the battle…

  19. Phillies Prospect Breaks a Rib While Getting Off the Couch

    Sep 3, 2013, 4:15 PM EDT

    blueclaws

    Now you have an excuse to stay on the couch the next time your spouse/parent/employer asks you to get up and take care of business. Remaining comfortably reclined, preferably with a blanket and the television remote, is in the best interest of your personal health. They won’t believe you at first, but calmly explain the…

  20. ‘We Will Rise’: This Video Will Get You Pumped Up for the Eagles

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:19 PM EDT

    eagles-tat

    Football fans in the Delaware Valley and all over are starting to get excited. The NFL kicks off the regular season on Thursday, then after a full slate of action on Sunday the Eagles head to Washington for the first half of a Monday night double header. In preparation for the return of the Birds,…

  21. Is RG3 Ready for Week 1 Against the Eagles?

    Sep 3, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    griffin-eagles

    Two situations spring to mind when I think about Robert Griffin III under center for the Washington Redskins just eight months removed from a torn ACL, not to mention without attempting so much as a single pass in a preseason game this summer. First, I think of Donovan McNabb in 2007, less than one year…

  22. Youth and Movement: The Phillies Traded John McDonald… Oh, and Michael Young

    Sep 1, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    michael-young

    One of the most baffling things that happened with the Phillies this summer was their inability to move Michael Young at the trade deadline. The guy is 36, a free agent at the end of the year, and blocking somebody with any potential future in Philadelphia no matter where he plays on the diamond. Well…

  23. Video: How Did Villanova’s Fake Punt Work? Answer: They Were Playing Boston College

    Sep 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    nova-fake

    Kudos to the Villanova Wildcats for employing an original fake punt that worked to the tune of a 47-yard touchdown run. It’s not every day you see a real snap, followed by a fake snap/fumblerooski thing, followed by an I-have-no-idea-what’s-going-on-because-the-camera-lost-sight-of-the-football. I was prepared to be impressed, but I couldn’t quite figure out how this actually…

  24. Danny Watkins Headlines Cuts as Eagles Get Down to 53 Players

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:05 PM EDT

    watkins

    Nothing cements a player’s bust status quite like the moment he’s released. The time came for Danny Watkins on Saturday as the Eagles trimmed their roster to 53 players in preparation for the regular season. We knew going in to training camp that Watkins had virtually no opportunity to start. Birds head coach Chip Kelly…

  25. True Freshman Christian Hackenberg Impressive in First Win for PSU

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    hackenberg

    Bill O’Brien had a difficult decision to make on his quarterbacks entering his second season as Penn State’s head football coach. With Matt McGloin graduated and off to the NFL (McGloin made the Raiders, by the way – although that may just be a sad statement about the state of the Raiders), it was down…
