Jeffrey Lurie delivered his annual State of the Eagles address before Thursday’s preseason game, and while the CEO didn’t have much of interest to say, the media was quick to hone in on the ultimatum of sorts he imposed on Andy Reid. Let’s see if we can deliver this is the simplest of terms using Lurie’s own words.

The Eagles and Jets will rest their starters — and Tim Tebow — in the fourth and final preseason game at Lincoln Financial Field.

A brief overview of all four teams in the NFC East. Will the Eagles wind up division champions?
Aug 28, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT
The Phils have posted a 24-17 record since July 13, which is a strong .585 winning percentage, and has them on track to finish the season at least .500.

Do you think Juan Castillo and this defense are ready to redeem themselves this season?
Aug 27, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT
After three-straight seasons breaking the franchise record in scoring, the Eagles took a step back last year as a result of turnovers. Will the offense become more efficient in 2012, or will it remain wildly inconsistent?

After a disappointing preseason, Brian Rolle has been replaced at weakside linebacker in the starting lineup by six-year veteran Akeem Jordan.

As is often the case during the preseason, it’s hard to say what the Eagles dismantling Cleveland by a final of 27-10 means for their Week 1 encounter, if anything at all.

If the NHL cancels games because of a lockout, they are counting on one indisputable fact: the fans will come back.
Aug 24, 2012, 1:03 PM EDT
Michael Vick will be held out of tonight’s game, but even with Nick Foles under center, tonight’s preseason game against the Cleveland Browns is a preview of sorts for Week 1.
Aug 24, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT
Late last night, the Eagles announced the passing of Hall of Fame running back Steve Van Buren, arguably the greatest player in franchise history. He was 91.

To the surprise of no one, Cole Hamels (14-6, 2.94) is having a teriffic season. The words Cy Young have even been lobbed around lately, although he’ll need to have quite the finish to truly get in the hunt.
Beating the potential front-runner tonight would be a good start. The Reds’ Johnny Cueto is absolutely cruising in 2012. His 16 wins and 2.44 ERA are tops in the National League. Needless to say, tonight has pitchers’ duel written all over it.

Nick Foles leads the NFL this preseason in passer rating, but what does that really mean?

Let’s jump right into the good and the bad from Monday night’s 27-17 preseason victory over the Patriots.
Aug 21, 2012, 2:43 PM EDT
Despite shipping the right fielder out to San Francisco a few weeks ago, the Phillies are still holding their Hunter Pence bobblehead giveaway at tonight’s game.
Aug 21, 2012, 8:16 AM EDT
Although Foles’ faster-than-anticipated ascendency is saving what would otherwise be a torturous preseason to date—and we the football-starved people appreciate that—it comes with a few grains of salt.
Aug 20, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT
So much for the Patriots testing the Eagles. Thanks to some brutal scheduling that has New England playing three games in a 10-day span, Bill Belichick decided he would rest a few starters tonight — basically all of them, actually.
Of course, this comes as horrendous news for the Birds, who thanks to some similarly awful scheduling — playing their Week 1 opponent four days from now — intended to use tonight’s game as their regular season primer. So, uh, now what?

Less than a week after agreeing to a six-year extension with Wayne Simmonds, the Flyers have now done the same for Scott Hartnell, locking up the feisty winger through 2019. We will update as the financial terms are revealed.
Aug 20, 2012, 1:37 PM EDT
Due to an unusual set of circumstances, the Eagles are holding their “dress rehearsal” one game early, which means when Monday Night Football kicks off tonight at 8 p.m., their starters will be going head to head with the reigning AFC Champion Patriots. Whether the opponent will treat the evening with any weight is another story.

This photo is all kinds of win, if only for the reactions in the bullpen — even though it is the play that was most associated with the Phillies 6-2 loss to the Brewers on Friday night.
Aug 17, 2012, 1:54 AM EDT
The Phillies’ bullpen falters again, this time surrendering the lead in the bottom of the eighth on a grand slam that handed the Brewers a 7-4 victory.
Fantasy Buyers Beware of Shady This Season; Plus An Eagle Not Named Jai Jarrett Who Struggled Against Pittsburgh
Aug 16, 2012, 1:21 PM EDT
Jai Jarrett wasn’t the only Eagle who struggled against Pittsburgh. LB Brian Rolle didn’t look sharp. Plus, fantasy peeps might want to beware Shady McCoy this season. And more on D-Ends.

Despite a solid effort from Roy Halladay, the bats and bullpen let the Phillies down in a 9-2 loss to the Marlins.
