  1. 5 statistics that should (but won’t) end Eagles quarterback debate

    Oct 14, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT


    The trendy stat of the day for Michael Vick supporters, Nick Foles detractors, and fence-sitters everywhere: opponents’ record. The opponents in games Vick has started and “finished” (technically he was pulled from the Denver game, but the result was not in question) are 15-7. The record of the two teams Foles has beaten is 0-11.…

  2. Even the Eagles players can’t keep track of their starting QB: Shady McCoy edition

    Patriots Eagles Football

    Mike Vick, Nick Foles. Both pretty good quarterbacks! But who is the starting quarterback for next Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. WE MUST KNOW NOW PLEASE! Homie Chip don’t play that. The Eagles head coach was a perfect politician on Sunday after the Eagles win over Tampa and again today during his Monday press conference.…

  3. Foles, Eagles, Foles!: A legend is born. @FakeWIPCaller is ready to call the Eagles’ quarterback controversy.

    Oct 14, 2013, 11:18 AM EDT


    In Sunday’s thrilling victory over Tampa Bay, Eagles fans got a glimpse at the future of the franchise — and that future is Nick Foles. Not only did Foles throw for 296 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, but he was poised, confident, and didn’t choke at all. Foles led the first-place Eagles to a…

  4. Foles should be the starter: second-year QB masterful in Eagles 31-20 win at Tampa

    Oct 13, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT


    If I’m Chip Kelly, I’ve seen all I needed to from Nick Foles. Simply put, the kid is playing a better quarterback than Michael Vick right now. The second-year field general picked up right where he left off last week in the Eagles’ 31-20 win over Tampa Bay. Foles completed 22 of 31 attempts for…

  6. GIF: Shady McCoy gets rocked, flipped in midair, fumbles

    Oct 13, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    LeSean McCoy rocked in Tampa

    After the Eagles drove right down the field with ease on their first drive of the day in Tampa, their second possession looked off to a promising start with Shady McCoy finding some open space up the right side before he got absolutely leveled by a pair of Bucs defenders. LeSean was lifted into the…

  7. Nick Foles drives Eagles right down the field to take early 7-0 lead

    Oct 13, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT


    Well that was a pretty damn fantastic way to open a football game. A well-executed screen pass to the dangerous Shady McCoy went for 44 yards on the first play from scrimmage and the Eagles were off and rolling. A couple of nice completions to Riley Cooper, DeSean Jackson, and the first of the year…

  8. Staph infection outbreak could force NFL to move Eagles-Bucs game

    Oct 11, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT


    Crazy news coming out of Tampa Bay on Friday. Three players on the Buccaneers roster have contracted MRSA—a strain of staph infection that’s resistant to some antibiotics—including two new cases just this week. How serious is the outbreak? The NFL may have to move Sunday’s Bucs-Eagles tilt. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Players Association…

  9. Let’s watch Dave Spadaro attempt to defend Riley Cooper when up against Reuben Frank

    Oct 10, 2013, 6:51 PM EDT


    Eagles WR Riley Cooper has not had the best of seasons. That’s one way of putting it. columnist Reuben Frank has put it another way — with numbers. Let’s check some of the stats: Fewest catches among WRs with 5 starts: R. Woods (16), R. Streater (16), C. Givens (15), R. White (14), D.…

  10. Caution: 5 reasons the Tampa Bay Bucs could upset the Eagles

    Oct 10, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT


    It sure seemed like the Eagles were catching a break when I first saw Tampa Bay on the schedule. The Buccaneers will be searching for their first win of the season on Sunday. They’re mostly in the news these days because of a messy divorce with their former franchise quarterback. From an outsider’s perspective, they…

  11. Video: Shady McCoy stands by his negative Knowshon Moreno tweet

    Oct 9, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Looks like he's yawning.

    Sadly, this video does not feature the very beginning of LeSean McCoy’s chat with the media today in which he somewhat humorously started things off by saying he believes Tampa Bay Bucs RB Doug Martin is in fact a “heck of a running back.” Alas, we’re left with McCoy standing by the negative tweet about…

  13. DeSean Jackson: ‘I don’t think [Darrelle Revis] can run with me’ [UPDATED w/ video]

    Oct 8, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT


    If Darrelle Revis is experiencing any ill effects from his ACL tear from last September, he hasn’t allowed it to slow him down on the football field this season. Revis Island may have moved in the offseason, but just like that place from the TV show Lost, it’s still somewhere wide receivers can disappear for…

  14. Remember This Guy: Eagles WR Chris T. Jones

    Oct 8, 2013, 2:29 PM EDT


    I find running to be maybe the most boring activity in the world. Why would I run somewhere, when I can walk there at a leisurely place? Really soak it in, you know? But I’m inching closer and closer to 30 now – still hoping for one more big, multi-year blogging contract – so I’ll…

    Eagles Cheerleaders Calendar Unveiling

    You probably aren’t reading these words but here’s a quick explainer anyway. The Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders unveiled their new calendar with a nice pair of events down in Atlantic City on Wednesday at the Chelsea Hotel. First up was a beach competition in which the bikini-clad cheerleaders teamed up with emergency responders who helped with…

  16. Eagles defense deserves credit for taking advantage of limited offenses

    Oct 8, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT


    You wouldn’t think it just to look at the group on paper, but the Eagles’ defense has played well more often than it has not this season. To reiterate, they’ve had more good games so far than bad. Yes, I’m aware Philadelphia is ranked 31st overall in total defense and 30th in points allowed. Yes,…

  17. The Holiday Inn by the Vet had terribly sad Christmas sausages, but it was also motivating

    Oct 8, 2013, 12:23 PM EDT


    Here’s a fun little anecdote about Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Terry Crews from the Daily News’ Molly Eichel. For those unfamiliar, before getting into acting Crews was attempting a career as an NFL player which included a brief stint with the Philadelphia Eagles back in the 90s. Safe to say his football career was not going…

  18. Chip Shots: If Foles throws 27 TDs in Tampa Bay, he can win job

    Oct 7, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT


    Nick Foles may get the start in Tampa Bay, but Michael Vick is still the Birds’ quarterback. At least that’s the way Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is looking at the situation the day after Foles replaced an injured Vick and led Philadelphia to a 36-21 win over the New York Giants on Sunday. Actually,…

  19. Report: Mike Vick to miss Sunday’s start against Tampa

    Oct 7, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT


    Mike Vick’s hamstring issues are expected to keep him out of Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Bucs, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Nick Foles, who came in and helped the team earn the victory up in New York yesterday, will step in and take the starting role. Vick not being able to go eases…

  20. LeSean McCoy tweets: Knowshon Moreno sucks

    Oct 6, 2013, 10:06 PM EDT

    Looks like he's yawning.

    Skip Bayless, Knowshon Moreno and LeSean McCoy walk into a bar … Knowshon sucks RT @RealSkipBayless: Peyton is doing what Peyton always does. But Knowshon is KILLING the Cowboys. — Lesean McCoy (@CutonDime25) October 6, 2013 Losing 52-20 to the Broncos will make you that blunt. So will trolling Skip Bayless. One way or the…

  21. Quarterback controversy? Nick Foles leads Eagles to victory in New York

    Oct 6, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT


    When Michael Vick left the game with a hamstring injury and less than two minutes remaining in the first half, the Eagles were ahead 16-7, and Nick Foles quickly led the offense on a scoring drive to tack on three. But midway through the third quarter, the New York Giants had retaken the lead, and…

  22. Eagles look to get back on track versus woeful Giants

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT


    Philadelphia is 1-3, coming off the heels of a 52-20 loss in Denver. New York is still winless and has been outscored 69-7 in their last two games. Your classic battle for NFC East supremacy, this is not. Although for what it’s worth—nothing if you ask Chip Kelly—the Eagles have a good chance to move…

  23. The Peyton and Eli Manning phone call transcript

    Oct 5, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    Eli Manning, Peyton Manning

    So apparently this week Eli called big bro Peyton to pick his brain about the upcoming matchup against the Eagles. You may recall that Peyton had some success against our birds last Sunday. I guess if Peyton were my older brother and I was playing for the Giants, I would probably be calling him too.…

  24. Eagles #FlyEaglesFly team release another awesome video featuring DeSean’s miracle return

    Image (1) 6a00d83451af4b69e20147e0db50c5970b-500wi for post 480054

    With the Eagles making pit stops at the Molly Pitcher Service Area this weekend before taking on the Giants at the Meadowlands, the fine people who brought you that amazing “We Will Rise” video now created a similarly fantastic video about DeSean Jackson’s Miracle at the Meadowlands. Do you remember where you were? I sure…

  25. Chip Shots: Kelly chastises McCoy for interruption, asks NFL for trophy

    Oct 3, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT


    The Eagles may be off to a 1-3 start under Chip Kelly, but if the pressure of the NFL is starting to get to the head coach, you wouldn’t know it from watching him. Chip was his typical snarky self at Thursday’s press conference. When somebody mentioned Philadelphia could move into first place in the…
