  1. No gimmes on Eagles’ 2014 schedule

    Apr 24, 2014, 3:19 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    Last year, I thought Philadelphia Eagles’ fans expectations were too low, with many calling for 4-6 wins “at best.” Based on some of the reactions I’ve seen since the 2014 schedule was released on Wednesday, some of you might be a tad too high on the Birds heading into Chip Kelly’s second season on the…

  2. Video: This is what an NFL player riding a tricycle looks like

    As Connor Barwin so eloquently put it, Evan Mathis is about that green life. The Eagles lineman showed up at the NovaCare complex in South Philadelphia today with his new whip. Well, it’s a tricycle that he calls his whip to be more specific. He says he’ll ride it to practice every day. The reporters…

  3. 2014 Philadelphia Eagles schedule released, full slate inside

    The Philadelphia Eagles reported to the NovaCare Complex on Monday for voluntary workouts as part of Phase One of the offseason program. In case you needed more evidence though that training camp and football season are right around the corner, the NFL has released the 2014 regular season schedule. The Birds will open their season…

  4. Video: After hard-hitting Stephen A. Smith interview, DeSean Jackson appears on Arsenio Hall show

    DeSean Jackson had a busy Monday. The guy got a new boat. Did something with a snake. And even appeared on the Arsenio Hall Show. You can watch part of the segment above and the rest of it below. Arsenio throws strange objects at Djacc to see if he can catch them. One object he…

  5. The five best/worst tweets about Donovan McNabb’s mugshot

    Apr 17, 2014, 3:47 PM EDT

    mcnabb.mugshot

    The Maricopa County (Arizona) sheriff’s office released a mugshot of former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb on Thursday afternoon but it was initially unclear what alleged crime was committed. Deadspin then tracked down a criminal traffic citation from back in January, and PFT says the two are likely related. It’s still not really clear what…

  6. LeSean McCoy says he’d take his two-year-old son over Tim Tebow

    Apr 14, 2014, 1:24 PM EDT

    shady-belt

    The journalists over at TMZ tracked down Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy in a California airport in order to ask him the pressing questions of our day. Who embodies the spirit of Philadelphia more, Will Smith or Rocky Balboa? Really, that was the first question asked. Then they asked Shady about the most expensive…

  7. Report: Eagles made trade offer for Miami Dolphins OLB Dion Jordan

    Apr 10, 2014, 3:31 PM EDT

    Dion Jordan

    This time last year, there was rampant speculation as to whether the Philadelphia Eagles would use the fourth overall draft pick on outside linebacker Dion Jordan. The connection was simple: the Birds needed a pass-rusher for their newly installed 3-4 defense, and head coach Chip Kelly knew Jordan better than anyone from their rime together…

  8. The people who REALLY Don’t like Mike Vick are the Jets’ problem now

    Apr 9, 2014, 5:29 PM EDT

    Andy Reid, Michael Vick, Tony DUngy

    I was pretty surprised when Mike Vick first signed with the Philadelphia Eagles for a variety of reasons. One of the biggest was that the Eagles had a pretty great quarterback in Donovan McNabb at the time. Certainly chief among the others was the potential headache Vick’s baggage could bring along with him seemed like…

  10. Replacing DeSean: The other guys, but mostly, a draft pick

    Apr 7, 2014, 3:47 PM EDT

    Arrelious Benn, Chris Houston

    82 receptions, 1,332 yards receiving, nine touchdowns; that’s what the Philadelphia Eagles must replace in the NFL’s No. 2 offense after the release of DeSean Jackson. Where’s it supposed to come from? Not necessarily from any one player. In this four part series, we examine whose roles will increase as a result of the move.…

  11. DeSean Jackson basically admits to knowing and spending time with gang members but denies affiliation

    Apr 4, 2014, 7:02 PM EDT

    Image (1) deseanjacksonalmosttd.jpg for post 485842

    DeSean Jackson appeared on Friday night’s SportsCenter in a sit down interview with Stephen A. Smith that clarified a few questions but left us wondering more. I don’t think Smith did a particularly good job with DeSean, but he did get him to admit that he knows gang members and the response given when asked…

  13. DeSean Jackson will wear No. 11 in Washington; Here’s his new jersey

    Well, there you have it. No. 10 is no more — at least for DeSean. You may have heard D-Jacc was interested in telling the franchise QB down in Washington to change his number: “I definitely am familiar with the No. 10 on Robert Griffin,” Jackson said during a conference call. “But, you know, we’ve talked…

  14. Why does Chip Kelly attend so many pro days of players the Eagles probably won’t draft?

    This video segment about Johnny Manziel’s pro day is obviously a couple of days old but I just saw it for the first time this morning and found part of it interesting. In it, Johnny Football talks a little bit about his relationship with Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly from the time years ago…

  15. DeSean Jackson agrees to deal with Washington

    Apr 2, 2014, 1:27 AM EDT

    DeSean Jackson, LaRon Landry

    Well, this was just about the worst possible turn of events, now wasn’t it? Four days after the Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, he winds up back in the NFC East, agreeing to terms with divisional rival Washington. That means we’ll be seeing plenty of Jackson for the foreseeable future—at least two times in 2014,…

    That was fast. As you can see in the above photo, the Eagles have already removed the giant DeSean Jackson billboard/banner that hung on the side of Lincoln Financial Field. Here’s our post when it first went up when McNabb left town. The Eagles like to make the banner art somewhat ambiguous as not to…

    desean.jackson

    DeSean Jackson is no longer a Philadelphia Eagle but chances are he’ll pop up somewhere and give Birds’ fans headaches. Kind of hopping it’s not the Redskins, who oddsmakers are placing as the favorite to sign the speedy wideout. Reports over the weekend said DeSean would be visiting DC today as the first stop on…

    You probably heard that a dozen times over the weekend. Whether you were the one being asked or the words were coming out of your mouth, Philadelphians everywhere want to know what really happened with DeSean Jackson. I don’t think the answer is as clear cut as some would like it to be. I don’t…

    Lions Eagles Football

    It’s times like this where you have to force yourself to step back and look at a situation objectively, not through green-tinted glasses. The Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, and it is 100 percent Jackson’s fault. Look, I’m not going to attempt to spin Jackson’s release as the Eagles got better on the football field…

    Vatican Pope Family Meeting

    Unless you’re one of those people who love jerseys, maybe. Then you could possibly have more Philly sports jerseys than the Pope now does after Mayor Nutter and his cohorts showered the Pontifex with gifts, most of which were sports jerseys with “Pope Francis” on the back. From Dan McQuade at Philly Mag who suggested…
