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

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    shady-giants

    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…

  2. 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.…

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

    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…

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

    Oct 3, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    chip-wave

    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…

  5. Chip Kelly: Harold Carmichael’s 1984 retirement is killing the 2013 Eagles

    Oct 3, 2013, 11:55 AM EDT

    In 14 NFL seasons, 13 of which he spent with the Philadelphia Eagles, Harold Carmichael caught 590 passes for 8,985 yards and 79 touchdowns. After spending the final year of his career with Dallas in 1984, Carmichael retired from the game. And that decision is just killing the Eagles’ offense right now. Geoff Mosher has a…

  6. Is the worst already over for the Philadelphia Eagles?

    Oct 1, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    avant

    In case you’re still searching for silver linings from the Eagles’ 52-20 drubbing in Denver two days ago—their third consecutive loss, and looking increasingly less competitive with each passing week—well the good news is there actually are some reasons to remain upbeat. Go ahead and scoff at the mere implication the sky isn’t falling. If…

  7. NFL.com analyst names Chip Kelly a top candidate for USC job

    Sep 30, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    chip-kelly-hat

    One of the true destination jobs in all of college football opened up over the weekend when the University of Southern California fired head coach Lane Kiffin. It’s easy to land top recruits, you’re living on the beach—where do I send a resume? At least one analyst believes Chip Kelly might be asking the same…

  8. Better ingredients. Better pizza. Better quarterbacks. Papa John’s.

    Sep 30, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    Peyton-Manning-Papa-Johns

    Apparently some players on the Philadelphia Eagles may have been yelling “Papa John’s!” at the line of scrimmage when Peyton Manning went into his “Omaha! Omaha!” audible calls / mock-pointing-out-defensive-short-comings during yesterday’s game. I didn’t hear it, but plenty of people did apparently. One blog post even went so far as to title itself: NFL…

  9. ANNIHILATED: Broncos humiliate Eagles 52-20 in Denver

    Sep 29, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    broncos-humiliate-eagles

    Well, we told you there was a chance to win. Actually, I said it, and I stand by it. I also said what actually wound up happening—an embarrassing 52-20 loss—would not surprise anyone either. The Denver Broncos are an amazing football team, which should be fairly obvious to everybody by now. The next defense that…

  10. Key matchups to watch in Eagles-Broncos tilt

    Sep 29, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    desean-drc

    DeSean Jackson vs. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie John Gonzalez had a nice story some days back about these two flashy stars renewing their rivalry. Not only were they going at each other in practice every day over the previous two seasons, they actually have some history on the field. DeSean Jackson and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie crossed paths twice…

  11. 3 reasons the Eagles could upset the Denver Broncos on Sunday

    Sep 27, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    shady-29

    Somewhat lost amid all of the hoopla over the buzzsaw known as Peyton Manning is the fact that the Eagles are an NFL team with a chance to win a football game this Sunday. Sure, you hear a few people touting this idea, but it sure seems like most are chalking this up as a…

  12. What time is it in Denver? Check your Rolex

    Sep 26, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly and Bill Belichick

    (What, you don’t have a Rolex? That’s weird. Bloggers always own a Rolex or two…) Chip Kelly has no shortage of unique methods, from music at practice and personalized smoothies to his entire approach to offense. He even has a way of acclimating his players to the time difference on a west-coast trip, like the…

  13. Eagles on pace to break NFL’s all-time rushing mark

    Sep 26, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    vick-mccoy

    Is LeSean McCoy the best running back in the NFL today? We actually asked that very question back in 2011, when Shady was en route to a league-high 20 touchdowns and wound up finishing fifth in yards from scrimmage with 1,624 in 15 games. There were backs who wound up with better totals, but for…

  14. Now you can get drunk on an official bottle of Eagles wine while whining about the Eagles

    Sep 26, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT

    eagles_rollout_cabernet_magento-134x480

    It’s a tradition that’s been passed down from Philadelphia fathers to sons for decades. There’s nothing quite like sitting down on the sofa for Eagles gameday on Sundays with a nice cooler full of cabernet sauvignon. For years, South Philly natives have used delicious red vino to drown the sorrows of NFC Championship games lost.…

  15. Here’s former Eagles DE Hugh Douglas’ mugshot

    Sep 25, 2013, 1:52 PM EDT

    0924-hugh-douglas-mug-3

    Things have not been going well for former Philadelphia Eagle Hugh Douglas. Douglas was fired from his position as an ESPN TV personality in August for a messy racially-charged incident and now comes reports from TMZ that he was arrested in Connecticut yesterday on charges of assault and strangulation. From the TMZ report: The alleged…

  16. Brent Celek knows the way to football writers’ hearts. Through their stomachs.

    Sep 25, 2013, 12:15 PM EDT

    BVBUFuYCIAAWZqo

    We wrote about Brent Celek’s mustache-themed eatery called Prime Stache back when it first opened up. He’s now expanded from just his location in Old City to a ‘stache on wheels. The Prime Stache lunch truck was down at the NovaCare Complex this afternoon providing the hungry and animalistic media with free lunch. Clearly Celek…

  17. Why aren’t the Eagles trading for [Player Z from Mars]?

    Sep 24, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    howie

    Two-time All-Pro safety Jairus Byrd is stuck in Buffalo playing on a one-year deal thanks to the franchise tag, and he seemingly wants out. The Eagles are desperate for so much as a capable safety, so why doesn’t general manager Howie Roseman pick up the phone and make that call? The Cleveland Browns just shipped…

  18. The time Michael Vick outdueled Peyton Manning

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    A lot of us—myself included—are just about ready to chalk up the Eagles’ trip to Denver this Sunday as another loss. The Birds have their share of flaws, but Peyton Manning has been simply masterful so far this season. You could argue he’s never been surrounded by so much talent before in his 16-year career,…

  19. Angelo Cataldi Goes In on Andy Reid, Journalism Goes “Woah There”

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:25 AM EDT

    ANDY REID

    “Four decades ago, I was trained at journalism school to value one thing above all others,” writes WIP host Angelo Cataldi in his recent Metro.us invective against Andy Reid. “The truth.” Well, clearly it wasn’t detail, even-handedness, or general narrative coherence, since none of those qualities are even remotely on display in “Andy Reid, Master…

  20. Roob on Eagles D vs. Peyton: Hopefully it doesn’t get really ugly

    Sep 23, 2013, 4:59 PM EDT

    peyton.manning

    The eyes of the Philadelphia Eagles’ fanbase now turn to Denver as the Birds are set to take on Peyton Manning and the Broncos next weekend at Mile High Stadium. CSN’s D-Gunn and Reuben Frank take an early look ahead at the matchup and Roob concludes about the Eagles defense vs. Manning-lead offense, “you just…

  21. Random Eagles Thoughts: 1-2, Time of Possession, and Mike Vick

    Sep 23, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    chip-vick

    On Being 1-2 Expectations are on a roller coaster. They started low before the season got underway, climbed exponentially after the Eagles throttled Washington in Week 1, now we’re down in the dumps after consecutive losses. All the while, how good this team actually is likely still lies somewhere in between. That said, their 1-2…

  22. Leonard Weaver’s musical debut is something else

    Sep 23, 2013, 11:52 AM EDT

    LeonardWeaver

    When you first listen to the new song “My Time” by former Eagles fullback Leonard Weaver you might think it was ostensibly a song about commercial airline travel, but after closer inspection, the listener can find a much deeper meaning. Anyone who follows Leonard Weaver on Twitter knows it’s nearly impossible to hate on a…

  23. A Story Involving Mike Vick, a Buffalo Wild Wings, Death Threats, and an Ex-MMA Fighter Who Wants Vick in a Cage

    Sep 22, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    What the hell is going on here? The Huffington Post has a story about a Mike Vick appearance at a Buffalo Wild Wings that’s been cancelled, although it turns out he was never really scheduled for such an appearance, protests were promised, death threats are being mailed, and, then in a separate but semi-connected chain…

  24. Video: Chip Kelly’s Phone Goes Off, He Gets Embarrassed

    Sep 20, 2013, 4:25 PM EDT

    chip-kelly-hat

    Rough couple days for Chip Kelly, whose team has lost its last two in a row, whose two-point conversion tried last night failed, and whose cell phone went off in the middle of his press conference Friday. Anybody recognize the song? It sounds familiar, but I can’t place it. [Update: Commenter “thewrongalex” tells us it’s…

  25. Donovan Loves You, Eagles Fans

    Sep 20, 2013, 3:32 PM EDT

    Donovan McNabb, Brian Dawkins

    We’ve all probably wasted more words on Donovan McNabb over the years than we all care to admit. The guy elicits emotions. All kinds of them. And the same can be said of his speech and number retiring ceremony during halftime last night at the Linc. I’ll note one part about the whole thing that…
