  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. ‘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,…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. Phillies Sign Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez After All, but at a Discount

    Aug 30, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    cuba.baseball

    Is it safe? Do we have confirmation? Okay, because the last time there was a report of the Phillies signing Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalzez, like two weeks later we found out, uh, that never happened. Apparently it’s a done deal now though, only the Phils won’t be locked into a six-year contract worth $48…

  21. Kurt Coleman Plays Cornerback, Actually Holds His Own, and Rex Ryan Approves

    Aug 30, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    coleman-rex

    The Eagles have seven cornerbacks on their roster (for now). Two of them – Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher – didn’t play at MetLife Stadium on Thursday because they’re starters. Two more – Brandon Hughes and Curtis Marsh – were unavailable due to injury. That left Brandon Boykin, Trevard Lindley, and Jordan Poyer to handle…

  22. Nick Foles and Some of the Eagles Wrap Up the Preseason Tonight

    Aug 29, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    foles-jets

    The best part about Week 4 of the preseason is it’s the end. All 32 teams are in action tonight, though we use the term “team” loosely because you won’t see m/any starters. The quality of these games is always poor, and by now I’m sure we’ve all had our fill of glorified scrimmages that…

  23. NFL Settles Concussion Lawsuit for $765 Million

    Aug 29, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    LeSean McCoy

    Is it me, or does this seem like a win for the National Football League? For the relatively low price of $765 million – just south of $24 million per owner, which works out to roughly 20% of this season’s salary cap – the NFL was able to settle their lawsuit with over 4,500 former…

  24. Jerry Jones Has ‘Brain of a 40-Year-Old,’ Cowboys Got the ‘Secret Sauce’

    Aug 29, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    jerry-jones

    Word to the elderly: this is not the way to convince people you are still as sharp as you used to be. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones desperately wants season-ticket holders and fans to believe he hasn’t been running the football operations into the ground for the better part of the last 15 years. You…

  25. The Over/Under on How Many Starts Vick Makes in 2013 Will Surprise You

    Aug 28, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    vick-hat

    Some people believe Michael Vick is a very good to great NFL quarterback, some think he’s an overrated, inconsistent, and flawed player. Wherever you happen to fall on that spectrum, there’s one aspect to Vick’s game almost everyone can agree on: he’s injury prone. Vick is the Eagles’ starting quarterback for now, but even if…
