  1. The time ‘genius’ head coach Chip Kelly deferred to Cary Williams

    Dec 9, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    Want to know what makes Chip Kelly smarter than a lot of other bosses around the NFL? He knows he doesn’t always have all the answers and is willing to take good advice—even when it comes from a player. The Philadelphia Eagles’ offense was stranded in a ditch somewhere off of I-95 until cornerback Cary…

  2. Eagles officially the hottest team in the NFL

    Dec 8, 2013, 11:31 PM EDT

    eagles-oline-snow

    It’s cold outside and there’s snow on the ground, but the Philadelphia Eagles are white hot. With their 34-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, the Birds now own the longest winning streak in the NFL at five games. The Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers were the only two teams that owned longer streaks…

  3. Origins: How the Eagles came to draft Nick Foles

    Dec 8, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    foles-reid

    There are two really great stories going around about how the Philadelphia Eagles came to select Nick Foles, quarterback from the University of Arizona, with the 88th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and both manage to cover the pick from different angles. The first is Jeff McLane’s in Saturday’s edition of the Philadelphia…

  4. Video: Zac Rinaldo racks up 27 penalty minutes in 4 seconds of ice time

    Dec 7, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Zac Rinaldo Antoine Roussel Jordie Benn

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ uneven play continued on Saturday. Three days after upending the Detroit Red Wings 6-3, the Bullies were pummeled by the Dallas Stars 5-1, preventing their latest bid to climb above the .500 mark on Saturday. Obviously, this loss can be blamed on the orange and black having to go without Zac Rinaldo…

  5. Photo Essay: Patrick Chung wreaking havoc on defense… his own defense

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    chung-4

    Rookie safety Earl Wolff has been ruled out for the Philadelphia Eagles for the third consecutive week, which means Patrick Chung is in line for another start. Chung hates the Eagles. At least it seems like Chung—or Captain Friendly Fire—hates the Eagles. He’s certainly inflicted more punishment on his own teammates in the last two…

  6. Coming-of-age? Sean Couturier dominates in Flyers’ 6-3 win over Detroit

    Dec 5, 2013, 12:32 AM EDT

    Sean Couturier

    Sean Couturier turns 21-years-old this Saturday, but he’s already well into his third full season in the NHL, and really starting to come into his own as an all-around player. He may have made a name for himself in the Philadelphia Flyers’ nationally televised 6-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night. Couturier…

  7. Donnie Jones the 12th man for Eagles defense, Nick Foles the 13th

    Dec 4, 2013, 4:13 PM EDT

    donnie-jones

    Philadelphia Eagles punter Donnie Jones was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for the second game in a row on Wednesday, which is no surprise. His seven punts downed inside the opponents’ 20-yard line in the 24-21 win over Arizona was one shy of the NFL record. It’s not very difficult to…

  8. 29th in the NHL in scoring, hard to take Flyers ‘resurgence’ seriously

    Dec 4, 2013, 2:52 PM EDT

    Wayne Simmonds, Josh Harding

    The Philadelphia Flyers were better in month two of the regular season than in month one, but any talk of resurgence might be a bit overblown. After all, when you get off to a 1-7 start, usually there’s nowhere to go but up. So up the orange and black have climbed in the standings to…

  9. Is Nate Allen good now, part of the Eagles’ future beyond this season?

    Dec 3, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT

    Rueben Randle, Nate Allen

    One of the more incredible developments this season has been the emergence of the Eagles’ bend-don’t-break defense, which has now made it eight straight games holding opponents to 21 points or less. It’s quite the reversal from a year ago, when the Birds’ D did not allow fewer than 21 over their final 11. What’s…

  10. Video: Chip Kelly says Nick Foles is Eagles QB for ‘next 1,000 years’

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Nick Foles, Riley Cooper

    With a hard-fought win over a tough Arizona Cardinals squad, Nick Foles’ record improved to 5-1 this season. He’s now thrown 19 touchdowns to his zero interceptions. So are the Eagles any closer to naming the 24-year-old their franchise quarterback of the future? You bet. One week after officially naming Foles the starter, Chip Kelly…

  11. Cardinals hold, Eagles hold on to fourth-straight victory

    Dec 1, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    eagles-arz

    After setting a franchise record for most consecutive attempts without an interception, Nick Foles finally made a bad decision—horrendous, in fact. While nursing a three-point lead with four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles floated a pass into the middle of the field, a desperation play made under…

  12. Photo Gallery: Steve Mason all but stood on his head in Flyers’ shootout win

    Dec 1, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Matt Hendricks, Steve Mason

    Steve Mason continues to make the Philadelphia Flyers relevant. In the box score, it was another ho-hum 34-save night that carried the orange and black to a 3-2 shootout victory in Nashville on Saturday, but as you can see from these photos, the effort was far from routine. Mason kicks, pokes, swats, dives and sprawls…

  13. Hey, you can vote for Nick Foles in the Pro Bowl now

    Nov 30, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    foles-infograph

    Last week, we examined which Philadelphia Eagles might be deserving of a trip to Honolulu for the Pro Bowl this season, but lamented the fact that Nick Foles was not on the ballot. Well, now he is the team’s Twitter feed revealed on Saturday. Guess who’s finally on the 2014 Pro Bowl ballot … VOTE:…

  14. Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians: read-option a ‘great college offense’

    Nov 28, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    chip-playchart

    At this point in the year, the Eagles’ offense is firmly entrenched as one of the better units in the NFL by almost any measure. They’re fourth in yards per game, ninth in points. They have the NFL’s leading rusher in LeSean McCoy, the wide receiver with the most catches over 20 yards in DeSean…

  15. How many and which NFL starting QBs would you take over Foles right now?

    Nov 27, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    foles-spike

    A few days back, a long-time reader posed an interesting question on Twitter. To summarize, how many NFL quarterbacks would you rather have over Nick Foles right now? Seems like an appropriate question now that he’s officially been named the Eagles’ starter. It’s difficult to answer, too. Foles still only has 11 starts under his…

  16. Sixers to retire Allen Iverson’s number in March

    Nov 27, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Image (1) iverson.loud.noise.ear.jpg for post 489651

    There aren’t many higher accolades in the world of sports than having one’s uniform number retired, never to be issued again. It’s a special honor usually reserved for a truly one-of-a-kind player, a distinction that could not be more appropriate for a six-foot guard from Georgetown, Allen Iverson. Nobody could ever wear the No. 3…

  17. Eagles hosting the suddenly playoff-minded Arizona Cardinals on Sunday

    Nov 26, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT

    LeSean McCoy, Rashad Johnson

    One of the great things about pro football in my humble opinion is how quickly a franchise can go from first-overall pick territory to world champion. It can take years to turn around a floundering Major League baseball team, and it’s damn near impossible to do in the NBA until the organization trips over a…

  18. Michael Vick reacts to Nick Foles being named Eagles starting QB

    Nov 26, 2013, 3:52 PM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    It can’t be stressed enough how impressive Michael Vick’s handling of the entire Nick Foles situation has been. We’ve seen so many veteran quarterbacks become indignant when a kid comes in and takes their job, and I know based on the comments fans have made in the past 11 months that many expected Vick to…

  19. Are the 2013 Philadelphia Eagles contenders?

    Nov 26, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Riley Cooper, Nick Foles

    Few people expected the Eagles to be in the thick of the playoff race heading into December, much less tied for first place in the NFC East. Chip Kelly’s inaugural season as head coach was supposed to be a rebuilding year. Instead, excitement mounts as Philadelphia makes its push for the postseason. After the Birds…

  20. Worst kept secret: Chip Kelly names Nick Foles Eagles starting QB

    Nov 26, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    foles9

    How obvious was it that Nick Foles would remain the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the rest of the season? Even Michael Vick thought it would be crazy to pull the second-year passer now. Chip Kelly would not confirm Foles would be the Birds’ signal-caller when Vick returned from a hamstring injury however—until Tuesday that is.…

  21. Shawn Andrews: Donovan McNabb was degrading, spread rumors

    Nov 20, 2013, 11:37 AM EDT

    andrews

    Former All-Pro offensive lineman Shawn Andrews was back in the news a couple weeks ago claiming he was bullied by Donovan McNabb while a member of the Eagles. Andrews declined to get too deep into specifics at the time, but he assured us McNabb rolled his eyes a few times. What Andrews wouldn’t tell Mike…

  22. Photo: Nick Grossmann’s ‘save’ bails out Flyers

    Nov 20, 2013, 1:14 AM EDT

    grossmann-save2

    Just how close was the Flyers’ flirtation with disaster on Tuesday night? There’s the shot up above—you be the judge. Sure, Philadelphia wound up defeating the Ottawa Senators 5-2, so in the grand scheme of things Nick Grossmann kicking the puck out of his own net might not seem to have mattered all that much.…

  23. Which Eagles belong in the Pro Bowl?

    Nov 19, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    lesean-desean

    Upon finishing up practice on Tuesday, the Eagles were officially on vacation until next week. That means come Sunday you’ll finally have time to rake the leaves, have dinner with your in-laws, or worse, fill out Pro Bowl ballots at NFL.com. The Pro Bowl has long been a punch line in NFL circles. Playing at…

  24. Edmonton Oilers GM heard Ilya Bryzgalov is a ‘terrible’ person

    Nov 19, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    bryz

    Ilya Bryzgalov is back in the NHL after a brief conditioning stint with the Edmonton Oilers’ AHL affiliate. It’s somewhat surprising it happened so fast. Little more than a month ago, Bryz was being courted by an ECHL franchise. Then again, I suppose Edmonton isn’t much better. The Oilers have a 5-15-2 record this season,…

  25. RG3: Eagles defense ‘knew what was coming’

    Nov 18, 2013, 3:18 PM EDT

    eagles-griffin

    We get so caught up talking about the quarterback sometimes, it’s easy to gloss over the job the Eagles’ defense has done this season. They’ve now gone seven consecutive games without allowing an opposing offense to score 21 or more points in a game, and nine of 11 this season. The rankings still have Philadelphia…
