  1. Nick Foles was chosen second-to-last in the Pro Bowl ‘draft’

    Jan 23, 2014, 12:26 PM EDT

    BergS6wCAAEZp-N

    Thank goodness for Alex Smith! According to ESPN’s Phil Sheridan, the draft style format that is new to this year’s Pro Bowl did not go so well. Safe to say he was not a fan of the novelty act. Shady McCoy was drafted with the fourth pick overall today but DeSean Jackson and Nick Foles…

  2. Counting Down the Eagles’ Offseason Needs: No. 9, Tight End

    Free agency is right around the corner, and the draft will be here before you know it. With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason in full swing, we’re examining where the roster stands at each position, counting down based on team need. Check out the first installment on running backs. The Philadelphia Eagles could literally change nothing…

  3. Jason Kelce to compete at Wing Bowl

    Jan 21, 2014, 10:44 AM EDT

    Jason Kelce

    Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce could be mildly described as a Pro Bowl snub this year. That’s a position where a lot of the voting is based on reputation, so even though he graded as the best overall center according to metrics site Pro Football Focus, it’s tough for a third-year player to earn an…

  4. How amazing would a Richard Sherman vs. DJacc NFC Championship next year be?

    Jan 20, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT

    My only hope: Richard Sherman on DeSean Jackson for the entirety of next year’s NFC Championship Game. — The700Level (@The700Level) January 20, 2014 Count me among the “I found Richard Sherman’s postgame rant to be wildly entertaining if not a bit ridiculous” portion of the human race. But I don’t know about this Michael Crabtree…

  5. Seattle-Denver Super Bowl rare matchup of two best teams

    Jan 20, 2014, 10:02 AM EDT

    trophy

    Obviously, any Super Bowl that doesn’t pit the Philadelphia Eagles against the AFC representative is not the best possible matchup. In terms of who were the best two teams of the 2013-14 season though, this year the big game appears to have gotten it right. For only the second time in the last 20 years,…

  6. Thoughts on Mel Kiper mocking wide receiver to Eagles in first round

    Jan 17, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

    kelvin benjamin

    It’s never too early for a mock draft (it’s almost always too early for a mock draft)—especially when it’s Mel Kiper, Jr., the face of NFL Draft coverage. Needless to say, his first take on the Philadelphia Eagles’ No. 22-overall selection probably raised a few eyebrows. Despite the presence of DeSean Jackson and a clamoring…

  7. Important Things: The mini William Penn statue will jump from one Comcast tower to the other

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:23 PM EDT

    William.Penn.statue

    Remember back when the existing Comcast tower was going up back in 2007 or so and we all made a big deal about the little William Penn statue that some construction workers placed at the very top of it in an attempt to break the nonexistent “Curse of Billy Penn”? The “curse” that supposedly inflicted…

  8. Spotted: A giant TV showing Eagles football in new giant Comcast skyscraper

    Jan 16, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    Eagles.TV

    It’s not everyday that news hits of the tallest building ever in your city is going to be built. That’s what happened yesterday when Comcast announced plans for the tallest building in the United States outside of New York in Chicago, which they’re calling the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center. Other than drastically altering the…

  9. Counting Down the Eagles’ Offseason Needs: No. 10, Running Back

    Free agency is right around the corner, and the draft will be here before you know it. With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason in full swing, we’re examining where the roster stands at each position, counting down based on team need. Up first: running back.   How does it feel, Eagles fans? How does it feel…

  10. Quotable: Lesean McCoy thinks Eagles have enough talent to win ‘a couple’ Super Bowls

    Jan 15, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT

    lesean-mccoy-belt-slide

    At first glance, I was going to suggest adding this into the “Dream Team” and “Dynasty” list of the stupid crap Eagles have said about their Super Bowl chances in the recent years. But at second glance, it only sort of fits there. Otherwise, it’s what you’d expect any athlete to say — they think…

  11. Evan Mathis celebrates Pro Bowl selection with Tonya Harding quip

    mathis-block

    Someone tell Tonya Harding I don’t need her help getting into the Pro Bowl anymore. — Evan Mathis (@EvanMathis69) January 14, 2014 Both Evan Mathis and Nick Foles were officially added to the Pro Bowl game on Tuesday afternoon. It will be the first appearance in the game for both players. Mathis took the honor…

  12. Report: Detroit Lions to hire Eagles QB coach Bill Lazor for offensive coordinator post

    Jan 14, 2014, 4:02 PM EDT

    Eagles Buccaneers Football

    Nick Foles is heading to the Pro Bowl. Chip Kelly is taking a lot of the credit. Bill Lazor is—perhaps soon to be was—the man behind the scenes As an assistant, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach largely flew under the radar while Foles was becoming the highest-rated passer in the NFL. It sounds like folks…

  13. Eagles you told Philly.com you’d rather the team keep over DeSean Jackson

    Jan 13, 2014, 4:27 PM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason already a week old, various media outlets are running through the tried and true “Stay or Go” exercise. We did that for the club’s 11 impending free agents, but it seems a little silly to do for the entire roster and coaching staff since a large percentage are definitely returning.…

  14. Mike Vick’s alleged former stripper-slash-’secret girlfriend’ tells hilarious tales of orgies, affirmed straightness

    Jan 13, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    The thing about the year 2014 is that computers are relatively cheap and anyone can sit down and hunt and peck their way to tell any story they want. Bloggers exist, after all, and you’re reading this. So it’s always a bit entertaining when “secret girlfriends” try to write tell-all books. The latest target of…

  15. Nick Foles makes the Pro Bowl (which reminds you of things about the Pro Bowl)

    Jan 13, 2014, 11:58 AM EDT

    APTOPIX Lions Eagles Football

    If you’re anything like me, you might flip on the Pro Bowl for a few minutes on whatever day/night it’s televised if you’re not already in the middle of a Sopranos or Breaking Bad binge-watching session, but mostly because you’re curious what the weather is like in Hawaii or how awful of a shirt Andy…

  16. $50,000 reward offered for information on DeSean Jackson home burglary

    Jan 13, 2014, 8:13 AM EDT

    wanted-poster

    The big Eagles news over the weekend involved DeSean Jackson and money again, only this time he lost some and is even offering it up rather than asking for more. Jackson’s Philadelphia residence was reportedly burglarized between January 6 and 10, and the star wide receiver is offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads…

  17. Story time: Wilt Chamberlain feared death by soda poisoning, a tape of the 100-point game exists, and one man did actually die in his seat at the Vet

    Jan 12, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    wilt-100ap

    A reel-to-reel tape of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game exists. But like so much else about Wilt’s career, no one’s sure where the damn thing is. You may not be familiar with him, but Josh Pastner is the head coach of the Memphis University basketball team. His No. 24 Tigers — who will be ranked higher…

  18. Let’s listen to Shady McCoy talk about the new Super Bowl uniforms he won’t be wearing

    Jan 9, 2014, 2:15 PM EDT

    SP14_AT_SB_Vapor_Shield_HERO_001_26472

    This is kind of a bummer. Nike unveiled some new uniforms and other gear for the players to wear up in New Jersey for the Super Bowl in February. It actually appears to be some pretty sweet gear. But for some reason they had to bring on Shady McCoy for this midday talk show segment…

  19. Why the Philadelphia Eagles don’t need Riley Cooper anymore

    Jan 9, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    cooper-bye

    Randy Moss. Terrell Owens. Chad Johnson. These are names of players who fans suggested play wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles after Jeremy Maclin suffered a torn ACL in training camp. In 2013! That’s how desperate folks were to keep Riley Cooper off the field before he used a racial slur. Fast forward six months,…

  20. Chip Kelly’s players think he’s a great leader

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:27 PM EDT

    Chip.Kelly.boykins

    Everybody has an opinion on Chip Kelly. It’s safe to say he won over fans in a big way in his first year as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. By all accounts, the future is bright for those who bleed green. But what did his players have to say about him after one year…

  21. One final fantastic Eagles video to end the season thanking the fans

    Jan 8, 2014, 10:43 AM EDT

    Lions Eagles Football

    Chip Kelly and Nick Foles weren’t the only breakout stars for the Philadelphia Eagles this season. Their crack video production team really brought it week in and week out, from before the season even started with “we will rise” until today, they really did make wonderful videos on a weekly basis that truly got you…

  22. Just so you know, DeSean Jackson is not demanding a new contract

    Jan 7, 2014, 1:13 PM EDT

    Lions Eagles Football

    You can put down your torches and pitchforks, folks. DeSean Jackson will not be holding the Philadelphia Eagles hostage this offseason. The polarizing wide receiver took to Instagram on Tuesday to explain his comments about his hope for a new contract this offseason. Jackson just completed year two of a five-year deal, but when pressed…

    There are certain privileges that come with being one of the elite athletes in the world who can get signed to play for an NFL team. At most jobs, if you get fired and your company goes on to have a banner year, you’re left with nothing — unless maybe you had some sweet stock…

  24. Stay or Leave: Early look at Eagles’ 2014 free agents

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:45 PM EDT

    maclin-cooper

    While it came too early this year—as it does too often around these parts—the offseason is one of the best things about the NFL. Organizations construct their rosters through free agency and the draft, and we get to play along as fantasy general managers, dissecting each decision along the way. As always, we’ll be examining…

  25. DeSean Jackson would like a new contract but what he’s chasing can’t be bought

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:23 PM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    DeSean Jackson spoke to the media today down at the NovaCare Complex and said a lot of things. The crux of it is that the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver would like a new contract after the career year he put up with the help of Nick Foles and Chip Kelly this season. He thinks he…
