  1. Eagles-Giants TV analyst: ‘What a sorry excuse for professional football’

    Oct 28, 2013, 10:04 AM EDT

    Giants Eagles Football

    It’s one thing when we all sit at home and make fun of just how awful of a football game we watched between the Eagles and Giants yesterday. But that’s part of the reason Twitter and hard alcohol exists, so we can bitch about the things we endure as Philly sports fans, try to make…

  2. Inexplicably, Chip Kelly opts for almost unprecedented onside kick with 4:11 left in Eagles’ loss to Giants

    Oct 27, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT


    For reasons unbeknownst to most all, Giants punter Steve Weatherford double-clutched kicking a high snap out of his own end zone and taking the safety, instead gift-wrapping a two-yard touchdown for Eagles special teamer Najee Goode. Crazier: With 4:11 to go, the score 15-7, and with the Eagle defense having to that point allowed 12 yards…

  3. Offensive: Eagles offense held without a touchdown for second straight week

    Oct 27, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT


    As bad as things got in Andy Reid’s final season in Philadelphia, never did the Eagles go two full games without scoring a touchdown on offense. Even without 80 percent of the starters along the offensive line, even with LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson missing in the end, whether it was Michael Vick or Nick…

  4. Freddie Mitchell says brain injuries contributed to tax fraud, had judge watch ‘League of Denial’

    Oct 25, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT


    Former Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchel was in court this week down in Orlando in front of a Federal judge who the former People’s Champ hoped would show him some mercy. FredEx claims that head injuries he suffered playing football contributed to the tax fraud he plead guilty to earlier this year. The details are…

  5. This is basically a 46-second Eli Manning derp face in video form

    I’ll admit, the love theme threw me off for a second. But then the joy of watching Eli Manning derp around the field thanks to the handy work of your Philadelphia Eagles made everything right in the world. It’s the latest production from the Eagles in their great #FlyEaglesFly series. Smart work on the editor’s…

  6. Phil Simms names Eagles offense one of NFL’s five worst units

    Oct 25, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Phil Simms

    In terms of quality, there isn’t much separation between the offenses for the Eagles and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger—that’s the NFL according to Phil Simms. The former New York Giants quarterback and CBS analyst was listing the top and bottom five units in the league on Showtime’s Inside the NFL this…

  7. Charles Barkley doesn’t care if Mike Vick needs a cane and a walker

    Oct 24, 2013, 5:09 PM EDT


    Sixers legend Charles Barkley is never one to be shy about his opinions on all things sports. He was a guest on 94 WIP on Thursday afternoon and talked, among many other things, about the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback situation. Not surprisingly, Sir Charles has a strong opinion. We’ll update this post with more from Chuck’s…

  8. Will Michael Vick be effective if he can’t run?

    Oct 24, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT


    The good news for the Eagles is Michael Vick is expected to play on Sunday—at least that’s the consensus among reporters. Chip Kelly sounds far less convinced, although who knows how much of that is gamesmanship on the head coach’s part. The bad news is Vick’s hamstring still may not be 100 percent by Sunday…

  9. Eagles might not be in position to take a franchise quarterback in first round of 2014 NFL Draft

    Oct 23, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT


    A quick look at the NFL standings shows that, even with the Eagles 17-3 loss to the Cowboys and 3-4 record, if the season ended today, 13 teams would draft before Philadelphia in the first round of 2014: Tampa Bay (0-6), Jacksonville (0-7), NY Giants (1-6), Minnesota (1-5), Houston (2-5), Oakland (2-4), Washington (2-4), Pittsburgh (2-4), Atlanta (2-4), Tennessee (3-4), Buffalo (3-4), Arizona (3-4) and Cleveland (3-4). Save…

  11. No rule of thumb for Chip Kelly’s decision to kick 60-yard FG at end of first half

    Oct 22, 2013, 7:18 PM EDT


    Fans were less than enthused with Chip Kelly’s decision to attempt a 60-yard field goal during the Eagles 17-3 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. “Charlie College,” they called him on the blogosphere and talk radio airwaves, insinuating that the brains behind a college football revolution struggles to grasp basic NFL strategy. Turns out, there’s…

  12. GIF: Andy Reid is now actually the Kool-Aid Man

    Oct 21, 2013, 7:17 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-10-21 at 7.06.20 PM

    The guy goes by Big Red for 14 seasons in Philadelphia and then goes to Kansas City — where he’s still big, and now actually clad in red. Naturally, references to the Kool-Aid Man — best known for breaking through walls and going “Oh yeah!” — abounded, and LSUfreek of EDSBS fame has captured it…

  13. Injuries muddy Eagles quarterback situation for Week 8

    Oct 21, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Vick and Foles

    Philadelphia’s quarterback controversy may have been laid to rest, but as of Monday it still isn’t clear who will start against the Giants in Week 8. If healthy, it will be Michael Vick—but that’s a big if. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly refused to name a starter during his day-after press conference on the grounds…

  14. Per Freddie Mitchell, Eagles lost Super Bowl thanks to Harrison’s HGH use, McNabb’s ‘s***ty a**’ arm

    A not-so-great former athlete with an outlandish sense of self who can’t seem to stay out of trouble, on social media and otherwise. Where have I heard this before? Like, really recently? Freddie Mitchell — best known for his great hands, but most recently known for a tax fraud scheme and having seven pounds of…

  15. Busted: Nick Foles plays worst game as a pro on big stage versus Dallas

    Oct 20, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT


    Chip Kelly’s analysis of Nick Foles’ performance in a 17-3 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys: “He was off.” You can say that again. And again. And again. Amid calls from fans and writers (such as myself) for Foles to take over the reins as the Eagles’ starting quarterback from Michael Vick, the second-year quarterback…

  16. Marcus Vick: Nick Foles supporters are ‘silly peasants’ and Eagles fans are ‘dumb motherf***ers’

    Oct 20, 2013, 3:42 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-10-20 at 3.28.36 PM

    Paging all you silly peasants and dumb mother– nevermind. Marcus Vick took to Twitter Sunday to rub in an especially insufferable first half of Eagles football with his typically insufferable tweets. And now, Marcus’ thoughts, as Nick Foles was going 11 for 29 for 80 yards while getting sacked three times. Bear in mind, this…

  17. Jerry Jones: Tony Romo ‘the best in the business in the fourth quarter’

    Oct 19, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Image (1) romodown.gif for post 485118

    There’s been some discussion in Philadelphia this week about Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo not getting enough credit for being one of the premier passers in the NFL. And actually, I agree with that premise. Romo has been putting up some gaudy numbers the last bunch of seasons. The reason he tends to go overlooked…

  18. This old NFL Films video on the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry is great

    Oct 18, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT


    A commenter posted this last night on Dave’s truly wonderful “Hater’s guide to the Dallas Cowboys” but we thought it was worth highlighting in it’s own post to remind you just how awful the Dallas Cowboys truly are. It’s a rather old NFL Films piece on the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry that ends sometime around the change…

  19. Video: Vick and Foles deliver joint press conference, won’t let job ruin the friendship

    Oct 17, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT


    The big news to come out of Michael Vick and Nick Foles’ historic joint press conference on Thursday was… wait—historic joint press conference? Yes, love was in the air as the two quarterbacks took the stage together to speak to the press—an NFL first according to Vick—and I’m sure there wasn’t a dry eye in…

  20. Hater’s guide to the Dallas Cowboys (and why you should never date a Cowboys fan)

    Oct 17, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    With first place on the line this weekend, I thought it would be a good opportunity to revisit our dear ‘ol divisional rivals from Texas. Now, the Cowboys haven’t really been on our radar these past two years; we’ve focused most of our energy on hating our own team. To truly hate another, as they…

  21. When’s the last time the home team won a football game at Lincoln Financial Field?

    Oct 16, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT


    Over the last two seasons, there hasn’t been a whole lot of winning football in this city. Dating back to the start of last year, the two teams that call the Linc home — the Philadelphia Eagles and the Temple Owls — are a combined 11-25. “I don’t know if Lincoln Financial Field is cursed,…

    Before we get to the comment of the week today, I’d like to invite you all to mark your calendars to come out to Smith’s Restaurant and Bar on January 23rd for Flyers watch party and meet up. How often do you get the chance to scream at people in real life who you’ve…

  23. You’ve got to start the reigning NFC offensive player of the week, right?

    Oct 16, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT


    Nick Foles was named the NFC offensive player of the week this morning after his impressive performance leading the Philadelphia Eagles to victory down in Tampa over the weekend. Also impressive is the rate at which Foles has been throwing interceptions. Which is to say not very frequently. knockonwood CSN’s Reuben Frank takes a look…

  24. Eagles LB Connor Barwin takes SEPTA to work

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:18 PM EDT


    Thanks for the ride to work @septa_social #bus17 — Connor Barwin (@ConnorBarwin98) October 15, 2013 Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin is an interesting guy. We’ve already determined he may be the headiest Eagles player ever and he’s done some unique things on Twitter in the past. So while it might be really surprising to see…

  25. DeMarcus Ware, DeMarco Murray likely out for Dallas vs. Eagles

    Oct 14, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT


    The Eagles are riding a wave of momentum into their battle for NFC East supremacy against Dallas in Week 7. Now they might be catching a couple of breaks, too. The Cowboys did not escape their 31-16 win over Washington on Sunday night unscathed. Injuries reared their ugly head for a pair of key starters…
