It’s kind of a flawed list considering where one of Philadelphia’s other teams sits in the pack, but your 76ers are earning some national love. So they’ve got that going for them, which is nice.

Eagles second-year offensive guard Danny Watkins is almost as well known for his prior life as a fireman as he is for being pretty good at football. After all, he bought himself a big ass fire truck this offseason. I guess with being a fireman comes the need to be a resourceful individual. Like if you don’t have any real food around you can just turn to indigenous insects.

That’s his name, so don’t want to wear it out — especially before one real game has been played.
The hope was that DeMeco Ryans would come over from the Houston Texans and stabilize a linebacker corps that was woefully in over their heads just a season ago. Unfairly or not, his arrival has been met with mixed reviews thus far — I’ll go on the record as siding with “unfairly.” Nonetheless, the seventh-year veteran’s athleticism has been called into question since an Achilles injury struck in 2010, and the idea he is still a three-down player is exactly that: an idea.

Some are much better than others. Sadly, the Philadelphia Eagles one just isn’t very funny. The Dallas Cowboys fan was pretty on point. I got a chuckle out of the Baltimore Ravens fan as well.

The Daily News published their big Eagles season preview issue today and it features the above pull out cover of Andy Reid and Mike Vick Photoshopped (we’re assuming) onto the heads of Eagles.
Like, the actual flying avian kind.

As we discussed earlier in the day, the replacement refs in last night’s Cowboys-Giants game did a solid job. They made a few generally questionable calls but nothing you wouldn’t see from a regular set of refs. But there were also rumblings that the NFL picked the best of the replacements to work last nights game to try and get a little bit of leverage by showing the replacements can be adequate.
Tony Romo May Have Played Quite Well, But At Least 82,000 New Yorkers Felt Like These Guys Last Night
Sep 6, 2012, 2:30 AM EDT
Eli Manning and the New York Giants may have been the ones celebrating a Vince Lombardi trophy prior to kickoff on Wednesday night in East Rutherford, New Jersey, but it’s Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys who are leaders of the NFC East this morning following their 24-17 victory last night.

The wait is over. Are you as excited as we are, even if it is a game between two teams you are hardwired to hate?
The NFL kicks off tonight at 8:30 in its traditional fashion, with the reigning Super Bowl champions playing host. Eight months after the New York Giants met the Dallas Cowboys to determine the last remaining playoff spot in the final game of the 2011 regular season, the rematch is set for the first game of 2012. And although there is less at stake this time around, at the end of the night, one of these two teams will be in first place in the NFC East.

Every week during the 2012 season we’re going to hit up some of the most knowledgeable people on the Internet when it comes to the team the Philadelphia Eagles are playing that particular Sunday. Up first, Scott Sargent of the go-to Cleveland sports site Waiting for Next Year.
Kulp:Third-overall pick Trent Richardson didn’t play all preseason after having “minor” knee surgery, but is expected to be ready for Week 1. How large a role will he play in the offense versus the Eagles?
Scott, WFNY: If any, I think we’re looking at a two-down situation with Richardson on Opening Day.

A look back at Sheldon Brown’s time with the Eagles, why he was traded, and what the team got in return.
The Tony Danza Prophecy of ‘The Garbage Picking Field Goal Kicking Philadelphia Phenom’ Almost Realized
Sep 4, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT
When I heard that the Eagles’ newest defensive addition acquired from the Cleveland Browns, safety David Sims, was a trash man at one point on his journey to the NFL, I couldn’t help but think of the cinematic classic starring Tony Danza, “The Garbage Picking Field Goal Kicking Philadelphia Phenom.”

A game-by-game prediction for the Eagles, who open their 2012 campaign this Sunday.

Jeffrey Lurie delivered his annual State of the Eagles address before Thursday’s preseason game, and while the CEO didn’t have much of interest to say, the media was quick to hone in on the ultimatum of sorts he imposed on Andy Reid. Let’s see if we can deliver this is the simplest of terms using Lurie’s own words.

A brief overview of all four teams in the NFC East. Will the Eagles wind up division champions?
Aug 29, 2012, 3:26 PM EDT
Great news, Eagles fans! You no longer have to worry about Eagles quarterback Mike Vick and his ribs. At least not if you put your full trust in the maker of the new super high-tech protective gear he plans on wearing.

My freshman year of college was a blur, but I do remember spending hours on end in other kids’ dorm rooms in Cheverus Hall playing 4-player Goldeneye for N64. Perhaps I should have spent more time working on my Freshman Writing Seminar so that I could learn to be creative enough to come up with an idea like NFL QBs as video game weapons.

Do you think Juan Castillo and this defense are ready to redeem themselves this season?
Aug 28, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT
Before there was DeSean Jackson’s punt return against the Giants, No. 36 pulled off one of the greatest plays for a come-from-behind Eagles victory that we’ve ever seen up at the Meadowlands. It was all made possible by Brian Westbrook.

Jason Kelce’s beard has been in the spotlight but now his hat is making waves.
Aug 27, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT
After three-straight seasons breaking the franchise record in scoring, the Eagles took a step back last year as a result of turnovers. Will the offense become more efficient in 2012, or will it remain wildly inconsistent?
Aug 27, 2012, 2:23 AM EDT
After a disappointing preseason, Brian Rolle has been replaced at weakside linebacker in the starting lineup by six-year veteran Akeem Jordan.
