  1. ‘Get the Screen Game Going!’ Eagles Trying, Failing

    As fans clamor for Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg to fix a stagnant Eagles offense that ranks tied for 28th in points per game, one of the common complaints we hear is the coaches aren’t dialing up the screen pass like they used to. On Wednesday, Pro Football Focus debunked that myth.

  2. This Halloween, Give Thanks for the Sixers

    Thanksgiving may be three weeks away, but Halloween is as good a day as any for Philadelphia sports fans to give thanks. Be thankful for the return of the 76ers, and their offering of a diversion.

  3. Grin and Bear It: Andy Reid Here Until the Bitter End

    Want Andy Reid gone? At the current rate, you’ll get your wish soon enough. Then again, maybe it won’t come quite soon enough for some of you.

    After 14 years, Reid may very well be headed for a pink slip in the next two months. Don’t expect the news to come down today though, nor this week or the next, probably no sooner than the end of the season. No matter how much you think he deserves it, there is simply no point in dumping the head coach at this stage, as some folks have already suggested.

  4. Eagles Take Step Backwards, Lose to Falcons

    If Juan Castillo’s dismissal was supposed to light a fire in the locker room, then it was unsuccessful. If it was intended to correct problems on defense, Todd Bowles appeared to have the exact opposite effect.

    After holding opponents to 18.8 points per game through six weeks, the Eagles’ defense gave up 30 on Sunday. After losing fourth-quarter leads in consecutive games, and seven times over the past two seasons, they surrendered six scoring drives on the first six possessions.

    They were a no-show up until the final minutes, or just long enough to tell the remaining home crowd, “Thanks for coming.”

  5. Photo Finish: Eagles THIS Close to Victory

    Oct 28, 2012, 4:09 PM EDT

    Which is to say they were not close at all.

    Don’t let the final score fool you. It took the Eagles’ defense until midway through the fourth quarter before they got their first stop, and Michael Vick and company simply could not keep up. The Falcons won 30-17, dropping Philadelphia to 3-4 on the year.

  6. Storm Clouds, 6-0 Falcons Confront Andy Reid, Eagles

    Oct 28, 2012, 11:10 AM EDT

    As the Delaware Valley prepares to face the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, Andy Reid is one of the few folks concerned with another looming storm. Reid is coaching for his job, and with a 3-3 record, he can see the dark clouds gathering.

    An Eagles win today would be like a ray of sunshine peaking through. A loss would be like driving toward the oncoming chaos.

  7. Does King Have Falcons’ in Check Already?

    Oct 26, 2012, 9:56 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/924879.jpg

    Coming out of a bye week where Andy Reid admitted he would consider all options, the only apparent change in the Eagles’ starting lineup was made at left tackle.

    King Dunlap won the job from Demetress Bell during training camp, then lost it due to a hamstring injury sustained in Week 2. Now that King has taken it back in time for Sunday’s game against the Falcons, here’s why that’s a good thing.

  8. Is Vick’s Contract One of the Worst in the NFL?

    Oct 25, 2012, 4:25 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/924187.jpg

    ESPN’s John Clayton ranked the 10 worst contracts in the NFL on Thursday, and Michael Vick’s (supposed) six-year deal worth $100 million made the list. Actually, it was second.

  9. Asante Samuel Demanding Eagles Fans Cheer for Him Assures They Will Boo

    Oct 25, 2012, 3:09 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/924119.jpg

    Going to the Eagles game this Sunday, and wondering what kind of reception to give Asante Samuel when he walks out of the tunnel? In an interview with AtlantaFalcons.com (via PhiladelphiaEagles.com), Asante issued an ultimatum of sorts to the Lincoln Financial faithful.

    Cheer for me — or else.

  10. Updating Jrue Holiday’s Contract Situation

    Oct 25, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/924083.jpg

    With Jrue Holiday set to become a restricted free agent at season’s end, the 76ers have been quietly at work trying to hammer out an extension with their point guard before the window to negotiate closes in six days. But as the deadline nears, reports are Holiday’s camp has already turned down a significant offer from the club, and is apparently under the impression he could do better on the market.

  11. Roob Stat: Eagles’ Pass Rush and Outer Space

    Oct 24, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/923215.jpg

    Last week we posted a fun stat about Alex Henery being the most accurate kicker in NFL history with a minimum of 30 attempts, as brought to you by CSN’s Reuben Frank. That stuff is what Roob does.

    This week’s stat is much more depressing, as it relates to the Eagles’ inability to record a sack in any of their last three games — but it’s still kind of fun.

  12. Opposition Beat: Talking Eagles-Falcons with Chris Dimino of Falcons Radio Network

    Oct 24, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/923083.jpg

    Each week during the 2012 season, we’re hitting up some of the most knowledgeable people on the Internet when it comes to the Eagles’ opponent that particular Sunday. This week we chat with Chris Dimino, a sports talk radio host and Falcons analyst for 790 The Zone in Atlanta.

  13. David Herndon Claimed by Toronto

    Oct 23, 2012, 4:59 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/922441.jpg

    And just like that, the David Herndon era is over in Philadelphia. According to reports, the right-handed reliever was claimed off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday.

  14. Video: Just Terrell Owens Playing Basketball Against a Little Person

    Oct 23, 2012, 3:40 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/922361.jpg

    If this isn’t the most bizarre sports highlight you’ll see all day, I’d like to know what is. Terrell Owens was just going about his business at the gym one day, when a little person challenged him to a one-on-one basketball game. If you had to guess right now, who would you say won?

  15. How Good Are the Atlanta Falcons?

    Oct 23, 2012, 1:44 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/922297.jpg

    It looks like Andy Reid’s perfect record coming off of the bye week is in serious jeopardy this weekend. When the Eagles return to action on Sunday, they’ll be hosting the only undefeated team left standing in the NFL. That said, are the Atlanta Falcons really the big, bad unbeaten their record would make it seem? We investigate.

  16. Howie Roseman ‘insecure,’ Eagles’ Front Office a ‘divisive, paranoid place’

    Oct 22, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/921301.jpg

    A couple weeks back, an anonymous general manager ripped the Detroit Lions franchise from top to bottom in an article that appeared in Pro Football Weekly. As it would happen, the Eagles and GM Howie Roseman especially are not immune to the wrath of PFW’s sources, shrouded in mystery though they are.

  17. NBA General Managers Don’t Showtheirluv for Sixers

    Oct 22, 2012, 2:06 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/921251.jpg

    While there is a strong buzz around town that Andrew Bynum could lead the 76ers to an Atlantic Division championship, that enthusiasm isn’t shared by many league executives. In an annual poll of all 30 NBA general managers, the Sixers were chosen by only two of them to win the Atlantic.

  18. Eagles Receive Reinforcement for Struggling Defensive Line, but Will It Be Enough?

    Oct 22, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/921183.jpg

    In a bit of a surprising development, Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson returned to practice on Monday, and could be activated to the 53-man roster anytime in the next three weeks. Patterson was placed on the non-football injury list at the beginning of training camp following off-season brain surgery.

  19. Where the NFC East Stands After the Eagles’ Bye Week

    Oct 22, 2012, 1:29 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/920961.jpg

    If the Eagles have any designs on making the playoffs this season, they can’t rely on getting in with a Wild Card spot, that’s for sure. Besides the four division leaders, an additional four clubs are posting better records than Philadelphia in the NFC. Dallas also shares a 3-3 mark, while Detroit can match with a victory tonight. Only Carolina is stuck on one win.

    There is plenty of time between now and December 30 for the landscape to change, but giving eight teams a head start on six tournament berths means there are fewer routes to the postseason. The clearest path for the Birds is through the NFC East.

  20. Nnamdi’s Lesson to Castillo: If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It

    Oct 20, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/919727.jpg

    Anybody who used to visit Iggles Blog on the reg certainly would remember their video reviews. Unfortunately the video reviews are no more, but Derek has been using the All-22 to study the Eagles this year instead. This week, he broke down Juan Castillo’s coverages on every passing play the Lions attempted.

  21. Juan Castillo, Offensive Coordinator? To the Time Machine!

    Oct 19, 2012, 1:27 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/918913.jpg

    Once the pity party ends for Juan Castillo, the reality is he can find another NFL job next season most likely. After all, we are talking about a widely respected coach who has connections on staffs throughout the league, and he certainly is not the first to go through some shaming.

    The real question is in what capacity will Castillo be hired by another organization?

  22. Benching Vick Should Be Reid’s Last Resort

    Oct 18, 2012, 1:28 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/917783.jpg

    Whatever your opinion of Juan Castillo and the job he did as defensive coordinator, that experiment has concluded. It seems to me Andy Reid had far bigger fish to fry, specifically as it relates to the Eagles’ ghastly offense, but you can certainly find cause for Castillo’s removal. If nothing else, firing your friend and associate of 14 years sends a powerful message.

    Whatever the case may be, people were seeking blood over the club’s turbulent 3-3 start, and blood they got. Like spectators at the Roman Colosseum however, the citizens of Philadelphia do not appear to be satiated by a singular display of cruelty. All eyes turn to Michael Vick now as a city asks: will Reid squeeze the trigger on his quarterback next?

  23. Quotable: Crosby Being Crosby About Injuring Giroux, Losing

    Oct 18, 2012, 1:05 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/917755.jpg

    When Claude Giroux required off-season surgery on not one, but both of his wrists, the reason he gave was fairly straight-forward: Sidney Crosby. When pressed for comment on his predisposition to hacking the limbs off of opponents, a petulant Crosby was unapologetic for the damage.

  24. Joe Banner’s Departure from Eagles Also Became Official Today

    Oct 16, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/916327.jpg

    Joe Banner actually stepped down as Philadelphia Eagles president months ago, but remained with the organization in a consulting role — until today. In all honesty, he was just biding his time while he waited to become part of an NFL ownership group, a goal Banner finally realized with Jimmy Haslam’s acquisition of the Cleveland Browns complete as of Tuesday.

  25. Progress on NHL Labor Front? Owners Make New Offer

    Oct 16, 2012, 2:28 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/904935.jpg

    After weeks where both sides did little more than mark their territory, finally we may be getting some good news toward ending the NHL lockout. Commissioner Gary Bettman announced owners extended a new collective bargaining offer to the players’ association on Tuesday, proposing an even 50/50 split of hockey revenue.

    It was the first presentation by either side since before the lockout began.
