  1. What They’re Saying: A.J. Burnett to the Phillies?

    Jan 29, 2014, 4:19 PM EDT

    burnett

    Reports indicate free-agent right-hander A.J. Burnett will return to pitch a 16th season in the big leagues, which immediately led to speculation that the two-time World Series champion could be a fit for the Philadelphia Phillies. After all, he is 37. Not unlike the Bobby Abreu signing from last week though, there is a case…

  2. Counting Down the Eagles’ Needs: No. 8, Quarterback

    Free agency is right around the corner, and the draft will be here before you know it. With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason in full swing, we’re examining where the roster stands at each position, counting down based on team need. Check out the previous installments on tight ends and  running backs. It’s amazing to me…

  3. Keith Law calls Phillies’ recent draft ‘perhaps the best’ in MLB

    Jan 28, 2014, 12:21 PM EDT

    Phillies draft pick J.P. Crawford and his purple bowtie

    They might as well change the name from Citizens Bank Park to Jurassic Park since it will be home to the prehistoric Philadelphia Phillies in 2014. The roster is old in a way that’s both funny and sad at the same time, and nothing is going to change that right now. Help is on the…

  4. Video: Jeremy Maclin running sprints at Eagles practice facility

    Jan 27, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    maclin

    How is Jeremy Maclin’s recovery coming along? You be the judge. The Philadelphia Eagles Tweeted this Instagram video of the wide receiver running sprints at the NovaCare Comlex on Monday, and he appears to be moving around pretty well. Maclin missed all of 2013 with a torn ACL suffered in training camp. Oh, who are…

  5. Nick Foles named co-MVP of 2014 Pro Bowl

    Jan 27, 2014, 6:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles

    Full disclosure: I didn’t spend one second watching the Pro Bowl. If you did happen to tune in though, you witnessed the latest chapter in the legend of Nick Foles. The quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles connected on seven of 10 pass attempts for 89 yards and a touchdown to Cleveland Browns tight end Jordan…

  6. Marlon Byrd claims Phillies aren’t old, needs a dictionary

    Jan 26, 2014, 11:06 AM EDT

    marlon.byrd

    Say what you want about the Philadelphia Phillies and general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., they’re not worried about perceptions. The organization’s relentless pursuit of players approaching their 40s is both funny and sad at the same time, but people affiliated with the team still seem to believe in what they’re doing, or at least they…

  7. Jamie Moyer could be next Phillies TV color analyst

    Jan 23, 2014, 11:30 AM EDT

    moyer

    I still can’t get used to the fact that Wheels and Sarge are no longer part of Philadelphia Phillies broadcasts, but maybe that’s because their positions have yet to be filled. Rumors and speculation have pinpointed several potential candidates to take over, but no replacement yet. Add another name to the pile. According to Phils…

  8. Counting Down the Eagles’ Offseason Needs: No. 9, Tight End

The Philadelphia Eagles could literally change nothing…

  9. Jason Kelce to compete at Wing Bowl

    Jan 21, 2014, 10:44 AM EDT

    Jason Kelce

    Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce could be mildly described as a Pro Bowl snub this year. That’s a position where a lot of the voting is based on reputation, so even though he graded as the best overall center according to metrics site Pro Football Focus, it’s tough for a third-year player to earn an…

  10. Best of all, Steve Mason’s new contract gives Flyers flexibility

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:31 PM EDT

    Steve Mason

    By all accounts, everybody was a winner over the weekend when the Philadelphia Flyers and Steve Mason agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $12.3 million. The orange and black can finally put the goaltender carousel in storage for awhile—at least we hope so—while Mason earns top-20 netminder money with a chance to cash in…

  11. Seattle-Denver Super Bowl rare matchup of two best teams

    Jan 20, 2014, 10:02 AM EDT

    trophy

    Obviously, any Super Bowl that doesn’t pit the Philadelphia Eagles against the AFC representative is not the best possible matchup. In terms of who were the best two teams of the 2013-14 season though, this year the big game appears to have gotten it right. For only the second time in the last 20 years,…

  12. Thoughts on Mel Kiper mocking wide receiver to Eagles in first round

    Jan 17, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

    kelvin benjamin

    It’s never too early for a mock draft (it’s almost always too early for a mock draft)—especially when it’s Mel Kiper, Jr., the face of NFL Draft coverage. Needless to say, his first take on the Philadelphia Eagles’ No. 22-overall selection probably raised a few eyebrows. Despite the presence of DeSean Jackson and a clamoring…

  13. Counting Down the Eagles’ Offseason Needs: No. 10, Running Back

  14. Report: Detroit Lions to hire Eagles QB coach Bill Lazor for offensive coordinator post

    Jan 14, 2014, 4:02 PM EDT

    Eagles Buccaneers Football

    Nick Foles is heading to the Pro Bowl. Chip Kelly is taking a lot of the credit. Bill Lazor is—perhaps soon to be was—the man behind the scenes As an assistant, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach largely flew under the radar while Foles was becoming the highest-rated passer in the NFL. It sounds like folks…

  15. The best of Chase Utley’s Twitter chat

    Jan 14, 2014, 2:32 PM EDT

    utley-smash2

    Chase Utley has been making the media rounds in full force this week, which is odd because it’s Chase Utley. Utley hasn’t backed down from any line of questioning from what I can tell. He thinks the Phillies can be contenders this year, steroid-users like Alex Rodriguez are a disappointment, and the Fightins’ new TV…

  16. Eagles you told Philly.com you’d rather the team keep over DeSean Jackson

    Jan 13, 2014, 4:27 PM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason already a week old, various media outlets are running through the tried and true “Stay or Go” exercise. We did that for the club’s 11 impending free agents, but it seems a little silly to do for the entire roster and coaching staff since a large percentage are definitely returning.…

  17. What They’re Saying: Reviews on PSU’s James Franklin hire are glowing… except one

    Jan 13, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    James Franklin

    You really have to do some digging to find many negative viewpoints on James Franklin, who was introduced as the new head football coach at Penn State University on Saturday. The PA native resurrected a Vanderbilt program from its perennial 2-10 record to three bowl games in three years, accounting for nearly half of the…

  18. Luke Schenn tosses Dan Carcillo like a rag doll and more video and images from a chippy Flyers loss in NY

    Jan 13, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    Daniel Carcillo, Luke Schenn

    The New York Rangers may have won their battle against the Philadelphia Flyers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night, but as is usually the case in this storied rivalry, it just set the tone for the next meeting. The Rags jumped all over the Flyers, potting three goals in the game’s opening 10 minutes,…

  19. $50,000 reward offered for information on DeSean Jackson home burglary

    Jan 13, 2014, 8:13 AM EDT

    wanted-poster

    The big Eagles news over the weekend involved DeSean Jackson and money again, only this time he lost some and is even offering it up rather than asking for more. Jackson’s Philadelphia residence was reportedly burglarized between January 6 and 10, and the star wide receiver is offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads…

  20. Why the Philadelphia Eagles don’t need Riley Cooper anymore

    Jan 9, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    cooper-bye

    Randy Moss. Terrell Owens. Chad Johnson. These are names of players who fans suggested play wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles after Jeremy Maclin suffered a torn ACL in training camp. In 2013! That’s how desperate folks were to keep Riley Cooper off the field before he used a racial slur. Fast forward six months,…

  21. Giroux was near tears over not making Canadian Olympic team

    Jan 7, 2014, 3:45 PM EDT

    giroux

    You have to feel for Claude Giroux a little bit, who was left off of the Canadian hockey team’s roster on Tuesday for the upcoming Olympics in February. The Philadelphia Flyers captain got off to a slow start this season, and while he’s been hot of late, well, that’s what happens. How much did Giroux…

  22. Just so you know, DeSean Jackson is not demanding a new contract

    Jan 7, 2014, 1:13 PM EDT

    Lions Eagles Football

    You can put down your torches and pitchforks, folks. DeSean Jackson will not be holding the Philadelphia Eagles hostage this offseason. The polarizing wide receiver took to Instagram on Tuesday to explain his comments about his hope for a new contract this offseason. Jackson just completed year two of a five-year deal, but when pressed…

  23. Stay or Leave: Early look at Eagles’ 2014 free agents

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:45 PM EDT

    maclin-cooper

    While it came too early this year—as it does too often around these parts—the offseason is one of the best things about the NFL. Organizations construct their rosters through free agency and the draft, and we get to play along as fantasy general managers, dissecting each decision along the way. As always, we’ll be examining…

  24. Was 2013 actually a missed opportunity for the Eagles?

    Jan 6, 2014, 10:13 AM EDT

    desean-saints

    No matter where you turn, the sentiments are largely the same. The future is bright for the Philadelphia Eagles. They were ahead of schedule this season. With a couple free-agent upgrades and another quality draft, the Birds are primed to be contender in the NFC for the next few years. The flip side of the…

  25. Nick Foles: ‘I’m hurting inside right now in my heart’

    Jan 5, 2014, 7:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles

    Whether you want to admit it or not, I think all of us were quietly thinking, hoping the 2013 Philadelphia Eagles might be one of those special teams that does the unthinkable and wins a world a championship in a year when nobody was expecting it. That feeling exists largely due to Nick Foles. Statistically…
