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

    Nov 26, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT


    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.…

  2. Video: DeSean Jackson helping one victim of bullying

    Nov 26, 2013, 12:09 PM EDT


    DeSean Jackson is something of a lightning rod athlete in the city of Philadelphia. He electrifies on the field with his speed but also raises some eyebrows at times with some of the things he does or says. We stumbled upon this video of DeSean making the effort to help one local kid who was…

  3. Eagles still control their own playoff destiny but wildcard now viable; plus black jerseys Sunday

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT


    Prior to this weekend’s action, it was commonly believed that the Birds would have to win the NFC East in order to earn a spot in the playoffs. After an exciting weekend of football around the NFL, however, it’s actually possible they could sneak in with a wildcard spot. Phil Sheridan blogging for ESPN explains…

  4. Nick Foles had a historic month of November

    Nov 25, 2013, 12:09 PM EDT


    Nick Foles has been downright impressive as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles — especially so over his past few games. Just how impressive has Foles been over the last few weeks? Check out this QB rating nugget for the month of November that was dug up by the NFL’s Director of NFC Football…

  5. The Cowboys won and there’s an Andy Reid / butt GIF going around

    Nov 25, 2013, 10:17 AM EDT


    The Eagles may have been off relaxing in the warm weather — we’re looking at you, Conor Barwin (okay, maybe not you exactly) — but there was plenty of great football to keep us entertained on Sunday. Unfortunately, the Cowboys eeked out a victory over the Giants to jump the Eagles as leaders of the…

  6. Mike Vick says Nick Foles should remain the starter

    Nov 22, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT


    For whatever reason, Chip Kelly doesn’t seem to be a fan of naming a starting QB. All of his intimations are that Nick Foles will be his guy. Nick is winning games and taking great care of the ball. That’s what Chip values at the position. So pretty much everybody agrees that Nick Foles should…

  7. The Evster’s tips for having a nice time while playing football on Thanksgiving

    Nov 22, 2013, 7:15 AM EDT

    turkey bowlllllll

    On Thanksgiving day, idiots all across America will lube up with Ben Gay and attempt to play some sort of game that kind of resembles football. Most games will be intense, some will be a nightmare, all will feature at least one dickhead who insists on punting the ball during warmups. I’ve never understood why…

  8. Chip Kelly and Nick Foles mic’d up for the Redskins game is awesome

    Nov 21, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Riley Cooper, Nick Foles

    The Sound FX clip over on the Eagles website of Chip Kelly and Nick Foles being mic’d up for Sunday’s win over the Redskins is fantastic. You get a glimpse into what the coach who loves speed is like on the sidelines and how everyone else, from the Eagles quarterback to the referees on the…

  9. Comment of the week sponsored by Smith’s Restaurant and Bar: The guy who praised Paul Holmgren

    Nov 21, 2013, 11:29 AM EDT


    I stopped in at Smith’s on Tuesday to have lunch. It included all the important food groups: vegetables, steak, and beer. Smith’s steak salad is great. And beer (Harpoon) with lunch is always a wise decision. May I suggest to the comment of the week winner that when you go to use your $25 gift…

  10. VIDEO: Donovan McNabb responds to Shawn Andrews’ claims: ‘Are you serious?’

    Nov 21, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Left: Shawn Andrews. Right: Donovan McNabb hugging Shawn's brother Stacy.

    Donovan McNabb responded yesterday to Shawn Andrews’ claims that the Eagles quarterback was degrading towards him and spread rumors that really affected his time in Philadelphia. McNabb was speaking on NBC Sports Radio and dismissed Andrews’ claims as outlandish more so than actually responding substantively to any of the claims: “For everything that I’ve been…

  11. Alllllllright! Way to go, Donnie!

    Nov 20, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT


    Eagles punter Donnie Jones was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his impressive performance on Sunday which Reuben Frank calls the greatest performance ever by an Eagles punter. We’re stoked for Donnie and just happy it gave us a chance to use the above headline.

  12. Here’s a horse wearing an Eagles hat

    Nov 20, 2013, 12:37 PM EDT


    You know what a totally normal thing to see on the streets of Philadelphia is? A horse wearing an Eagles hat. Totally normal. This horse is wearing an Eagles hat. — Dan McQuade (@dhm) November 20, 2013  

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

    Nov 20, 2013, 11:37 AM EDT


    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…

  14. Which Eagles belong in the Pro Bowl?

    Nov 19, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT


    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 The Pro Bowl has long been a punch line in NFL circles. Playing at…

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

    Nov 18, 2013, 3:18 PM EDT


    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…

  16. Now the refs in Philly are apparently cursing at Eagles’ opponents

    Nov 18, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT


    Maybe spending all that time around 69,000 Philadelphians in South Philly rubbed off on the referees working yesterday’s Eagles-Redskins game. Because one umpire directed some very foul language at one of the Redskins players. You can watch the clip of Trent Williams discussing the incident above and read the transcript from the Washington Post below:…

  17. Foles: ‘Guys go to work knowing that we haven’t arrived—you never arrive.’

    Nov 17, 2013, 8:31 PM EDT


    What’s the secret to Nick Foles’ success this season? It’s quite simple, really. He just goes to work every day and tries to improve at his craft—that, and he channels the likes of Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. Foles said it, not me. Upon leading the Eagles to a third-straight victory…

  18. Eagles finally win at home, move into first place in the NFC East

    Nov 17, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT


    412 days had passed since the Eagles last won at Lincoln Financial Field—10 games and over a full calendar year. The Birds finally gave the home crowd a reason to cheer on Sunday though, their 24-16 victory over Washington ending the losing streak and catapulting Philadelphia into first place in the NFC East. The Eagles’…

  19. Watch Shady McCoy steal a Redskins fan’s flag

    Nov 17, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT


    Prior to kickoff this afternoon at the Linc, some Redskins fan was attempting to fly his Redskins Country flag in South Philadelphia. LeSean McCoy was not having any of it. Shady went over to high five some Birds fans and snatched the flag right from the aforementioned Redskins fan. He then walked away and tossed…

  20. Gameday: Eagles without three starters on defense versus Washington

    Nov 17, 2013, 12:52 PM EDT


    Big game for the Birds today. Huge game in fact. A win would give Philadelphia a half-game lead over idle Dallas in the NFC East standings. A loss will drop the Eagles to 5-6—2-3 in the division—muddying their path to the playoffs. If the Eagles are going to extend their winning streak to three games,…

  21. Eagles post cartoon of Nick Foles as Napoleon Dynamite

    Nov 15, 2013, 3:39 PM EDT


    Not sure if you caught this earlier in the week but Nick Foles, the current starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles who has yet to throw an interception this season, was asked about the frequent comparison he gets to the character in the movie Napoleon Dynamite. “I get it a lot,” Foles said with a…

  22. So were all of those previous #10mode efforts only really 8s or 9s?

    Nov 15, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    DeSean Jackson has been having a fine season. He’s put up some good numbers and caught some real nice and lengthy TDs. His teammates are even saying he’s been a better teammate this year. Eagles beat writer Tim McManus has an article about DeSean’s big turnaround this season and it includes this gem about DJacc…

  23. The power of Chip compels you… not to do that shot

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT


    Chip Kelly and his Philadelphia Eagles have a mantra. Habits reflect the mission. Whatever that means. Okay, what does it mean? Vinny Curry explains: “All he’s saying is basically follow the blueprint and pick your head up at the end of the season and see where we are,” defensive end Vinny Curry said. “And so…

  24. Place your bets: Eagles’ Super Bowl odds just keep improving

    Nov 14, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT


    Nick Foles, baby. Vegas loooooves Nick Foles. After their victory in Green Bay last Sunday the betting line on the Birds to win the Super Bowl increased dramatically, from a longshot 66/1 to a still pretty longshot 33/1, according to the lines at Also interesting, the Giants this week have better odds than the…

  25. Could Michael Vick remain in Philly beyond 2013—as a backup?

    Nov 13, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT


    Suppose Nick Foles plays well enough over the final six games in 2013 that the Eagles aren’t pigeonholed into drafting another quarterback. Maybe they do, maybe they don’t, but it’s not automatically the top priority going in. Between Foles and Matt Barkley, Philadelphia has two quarterbacks under contract for next season. Most teams carry three,…
