  1. Breaking down the Eagles’ dominant finish in Green Bay

    Nov 11, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    mccoy-oline

    When was the last time we saw the Eagles simply overpower an opponent the way they did the Packers in the fourth quarter on Sunday? There are a ton of things to like about the Birds right now. Nick Foles can’t seem to make a mistake. LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson are about to reach…

  2. Video: DeSean Jackson takes preemptive measures to avoid Philly on Philly booing

    The Eagles offense looked pretty solid on Sunday in their victory in Green Bay. DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper were once again recipients of long touchdown passes from Nick Foles and everybody should be happy after the game, right? [GIF: DeSean Jackson's 55-yard TD with a lucky bounce, swagger through the roof] The questioning in…

  3. Eagles surpass last season’s win total 10 games into 2013

    Nov 10, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    eagles-d

    The Eagles might be a year or two away from contending for a championship—they don’t even know who their franchise quarterback is (or do they?)—but at least one thing is now certain. This year’s team is officially better than the 2012 iteration. After finishing 4-12 in Andy Reid’s final season as head coach, Philadelphia has…

  4. Clay Matthews club-hand is legal because it’s covered in some soft stuff

    Nov 10, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Clay Matthews

    “How the heck is it legal to have a giant club for a hand and play in an NFL game?!?” is probably what you were wondering when you saw the covering Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has on his hand today as they take on the Philadelphia Eagles. Matthews is playing in his first…

  5. GIF: DeSean Jackson gets a little lucky, still catches 55-yard TD

    Even though he needed a little bit of luck to catch this 55-yard TD pass from Nick Foles, DeSean Jackson still showed the swagger we’ve come to love and expect from him as he backpedaled into the endzone. DJacc clearly beat the Packers’ secondary but Foles ball was a bit under-thrown. Nothing a little luck…

  6. Eagles look to get back to .500 against the Packers at Lambeau

    Nov 10, 2013, 12:54 PM EDT

    shady-pack

    All eyes will be on Nick Foles this week to see if the second-year passer can string together two quality games in a row, but the game’s outcome has more far-reaching implications for the Philadelphia than the future under center. With a win over the Packers, the Eagles can improve their record to 5-5 and…

  7. Shawn Andrews accuses Donovan McNabb of mistreatment, says he requested a trade

    Nov 8, 2013, 5:42 PM EDT

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

    Fresh off the heels of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation, former Eagles offensive lineman Shawn Andrews is accusing his ex-teammates of mistreating him during his time in Philadelphia. Of all people, Andrews had plenty to say about Donovan McNabb — albeit without ever saying much of anything. Andrews went on 97.5 The Fanatic Friday afternoon…

  8. The Evster reviews NFL Network’s ‘The Football Life: Randall Cunningham’

    Nov 8, 2013, 7:30 AM EDT

    RC JC

    Growing up, no one, and I mean NO ONE, made me lose my shit more than Randall Cunningham. Not Shawn Kemp. Not Frank Drebin. Not even the lovely ladies of Hustler magazine and their knee-high tube socks. Randall Cunningham was The Ultimate Weapon Bonkers Machine. So when I heard that the NFL Network was going to…

  9. Can the Packers beat the Eagles without Aaron Rodgers?

    Nov 7, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    Aaron Rodgers

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist Bob McGinn was in the news this week for his unfortunately-timed article “Packers could win without Aaron Rodgers,” a story that ran two days before the All-Pro quarterback suffered a broken collarbone. Oops. McGinn tempted fate, writing “Fools will cry that I’m jinxing Rodgers and the Packers” before inadvertently forecasting with…

  10. PSA: Randall Cunningham featured on NFL Network’s A Football Life tonight

    Nov 5, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    RANDALL CUNNINGHAM CUNNINGHAM

    The Flyers are in Raleigh to take on the Carolina Hurricanes, a meeting of four-win hockey clubs wallowing in the bottom half of a weak Metro Division. Not exactly appointment viewing for all but the most Flyered up among us. The local sports calendar is not bereft of quality sports television programming however. The NFL…

  11. Eagles Extras: Rodgers injured, Nnamdi cut, Foles to the Hall of Fame

    Nov 5, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    foles jersey

    Nick Foles is Canton-bound! Well, his jersey is anyway. The Pro Football Hall of Fame requested some game-used gear from Foles’ historic seven-touchdown performance in Oakland, and what better than his white no. 9 to display in the museum of football? A few reporters were able to snap a quick photo of the jersey as…

  12. What’s next for Nick Foles?

    Nov 4, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    foles9

    Like everybody else, I’m having a little trouble wrapping my head around what Nick Foles accomplished in an Eagles uniform on Sunday. On one hand, I don’t care who you are or what the situation is, seven touchdowns in one game is damn impressive. There’s a reason only six other players in the 94-year history…

  13. Ray Emery: A true Philadelphia hero for our time

    Nov 4, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    ray.emery

    On Friday night, things were looking pretty ugly for the Flyers, and for our city too. The Flyers were down 7-0 to the Washington Capitals, in front of a hostile Wells Fargo Center crowd. In the third period, things looked pretty hopeless. At that point, some teams would have rolled over and died. Some teams…

  14. Nick Foles has thrown 7 TDs before… in a video game

    Nov 4, 2013, 8:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles went out and threw an NFL record-tying 7 touchdowns on Sunday in Oakland. It was an amazing performance that almost nobody saw coming. Probably not even Nick Foles. “I don’t think Nick Foles ever seen anything on his film that would give him any indication that he’d throw for 7…

  15. Nick Foles ties NFL record with seven touchdown passes

    Nov 3, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    nick.foles.cooper

    Even those folks who have been clamoring for Nick Foles to be the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the remainder of the season couldn’t have seen this coming. Foles threw more touchdown passes than incompletions in the Birds’ 49-20 victory over the Raiders on Sunday, tying the NFL single-game record with seven scores. Foles’ line: 22-of-28…

  16. Nick Foles was on fire in the first half

    Nov 3, 2013, 5:35 PM EDT

    Eagles Raiders Football

    The Eagles lead the Oakland Raiders 28-13 after the first half thanks in large part to the impressive play of Nick Foles and Riley Cooper. Foles was 15-19 in the first two quarters, good for 260 yards and 4 touchdowns to 0 interceptions. Foles had a perfect 158.3 passer rating in the half. The Birds…

  17. Eagles-Raiders: Will Nick Foles rebound? Can Birds score a touchdown?

    Nov 3, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    It’s been three weeks—21 full days—since Nick Foles placed a 36-yard rainbow between three defenders and into DeSean Jackson’s waiting arms in Tampa Bay. That was the last time the Eagles’ offense reached the end zone. Over the past two games we’ve seen Foles regress to Bobby Hoying levels of ineptitude, watched as Michael Vick…

  18. Catching up on some big Eagles storylines heading into Week 9: Foles starting, Sopoaga traded and winning the division

    Oct 31, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    eagles-logo

    The Eagles are coming off of back-to-back losses to division rivals at the Linc by a combined score of 32-10. Chip Kelly’s offense has not produced a touchdown since October 13 against the winless Tampa Bay Bucs. We’re at the midway point in the season, and the buzz around Philadelphia has clearly shifted as many…

  19. The Eagles show of brotherly love towards the Sixers is adorable

    From our own 10, 9, 8, 7 to the @Sixers: Good luck this season! #TogetherWeBuild #FlyEaglesFly #BrotherlyLove pic.twitter.com/RCDmFHbm4R — Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) October 30, 2013 For whatever reason, people get a big kick out of the different sports franchises in this town supporting one another in any way. Sometimes it’s as simple as Mike Vick…

  20. DeSean Jackson worth the money, not a headache

    Oct 30, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    desean.jackson

    It doesn’t take much rolling up of the sleeves to establish that DeSean Jackson is a less than cost-efficient asset. Since 2011, he ranks 33rd among NFL wide receivers in receiving touchdowns, 17th in receiving yards per game and 13th in yards per catch. All account for the first eight weeks of this year, his supposed “breakout” year. Yet…

  21. Freddie Mitchell gets three-plus years in prison for tax fraud, says TMZ

    Oct 29, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT

    Freddie.Mitchell

    I guess that means the judge wasn’t buying Freddie Mitchell’s defense that head injuries he sustained during his NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles contributed to the tax fraud schemes he pulled off once he was out of the league. After appearing in court last week, Mitchell was apparently sentenced today. TMZ has the report:…

  22. Peter King: Eagles ‘the disappointment of the season’

    Oct 28, 2013, 4:13 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    Expectations were low for the Eagles heading into the season, although I’m not sure anybody thought a Chip Kelly offense would go one game without scoring a touchdown, let alone two in a row. Still, Philadelphia wasn’t exactly thinking Super Bowl this year, and most didn’t have them this team in the playoffs, so a…

  23. Reminder for Chip Kelly: the Broncos won games with Tim Tebow at QB

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    barkley

    Practically every Eagles fan understands this team in all likelihood does not have its franchise quarterback. For all the words that were spent on Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Matt Barkley and which one should or should not start, there are legitimate doubts that any one of them could ever be the man in Philadelphia. Chip…

  24. Philadelphia bar still refuses to show Eagles games because dog fighting

    Oct 28, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Andy Reid, Michael Vick, Tony DUngy

    I suppose there’s good news and bad news for residents of Graduate Hospital / Fitler Square / South Street West / whatever-you-like-to-call the area of the city near 22nd and Lombard Streets in Philadelphia. The bad news is that you can’t watch an Eagles game at Doobie’s, the cozy corner dive bar known for it’s…

  25. You probably want to, but don’t write off Chip Kelly’s chance at being ‘revolutionary’ just yet

    Oct 28, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    chip-kinne

    With yesterday’s 15-7 downer against the Giants giving the Eagles two straight losses and Chip Kelly’s go-go/high octane/whatever offense two straight games without a touchdown, now seems a convenient time to mock that thing about that time Kelly was supposed to “revolutionize” the NFL. Count Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News among those who…
