  1. 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…

  2. Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks responds to Rihanna’s stated crush oh him

    Jan 6, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT


    Apparently a popular trend on the Internet, and more specifically the photo sharing site Instagram, is to overshare with the world and let them know who you have a crush on. On Monday it’s for the men, on Wednesday it’s for the women. Or so the acronyms go anyway. This is all pretty trivial and…

  3. Was 2013 actually a missed opportunity for the Eagles?

    Jan 6, 2014, 10:13 AM EDT


    No matter where you turn, the sentiments are largely the same. The future is bright for the Philadelphia Eagles. They were ahead of schedule this season. With a couple free-agent upgrades and another quality draft, the Birds are primed to be contender in the NFC for the next few years. The flip side of the…

  4. Nick Foles: ‘I’m hurting inside right now in my heart’

    Jan 5, 2014, 7:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles

    Whether you want to admit it or not, I think all of us were quietly thinking, hoping the 2013 Philadelphia Eagles might be one of those special teams that does the unthinkable and wins a world a championship in a year when nobody was expecting it. That feeling exists largely due to Nick Foles. Statistically…

  6. Just your typical shirtless fan in a HOT TUB in the Linc lot for Eagles-Saints freezing tailgate

    Jan 4, 2014, 3:49 PM EDT

    If you’ve left the house today then you know it’s freaking cold outside. Really cold; well below freezing, in fact. But that hasn’t stopped thousands of Philadelphia Eagles fans from getting down to the parking lots early to get in the traditional activities of grilling, playing cornhole, drinking some frosty beers… and soaking in a…

  7. Eagles vs. Saints: 4 stats that matter

    Jan 4, 2014, 1:06 PM EDT


    Drew Brees: home vs. away It’s been such an amazing year for quarterbacks in the NFL that Drew Brees is almost flying under the radar. 2013 was the fourth time the Super Bowl XLIV MVP threw for over 5,000 yards in a season, but the first it wasn’t good enough to lead the league. In…

  8. Watching hundreds of other people shovel snow at the Linc is way more fun than actually shoveling

    Jan 3, 2014, 4:50 PM EDT


    Alternative post title if we were a New Orleans sports blog: Hundreds stockpile ammo to be targeted at Saints on Saturday night Shoveling snow is the worst. It hurts your back. You get all sweaty. Then it snows again and you have to go back out and do it all again. Your floor gets all…

  9. Philly transplant and current New Orleanian Jrue Holiday sticks up for Philly fans in Santa bait piece

    Jan 3, 2014, 2:10 PM EDT

    Sometimes when the Earth is at a certain distance from the Sun during a certain time of year and the clouds high in the atmosphere become too condensed with H20, gravity forces the water molecules to fall from the sky, often freezing along the way and forming things called snowflakes. Sometimes, in certain parts of…

  10. Yes, the Eagles have a Snapchat account

    Jan 3, 2014, 12:04 PM EDT


    In an overcrowded, constantly changing media landscape, Snapchat is here to stay.  Alright, I don’t really know that for sure.  But my friends and I like Snapchat.  So hopefully that counts for something. If you don’t know about Snapchat, here are the basics: You can send pictures or short videos, and friends can see them…

  11. Exclusive (Hah!): Potential character designs for undercover cops posing as Saints fans

    Jan 3, 2014, 10:20 AM EDT


    In an effort to curb the violent incidents that keeping up at sporting events around the country, the Philadelphia police department has come up with a pretty decent idea for Saturday’s night Eagles-Saints playoff game at the Linc: @PhillyPolice will be wearing @Saints jerseys & hats, be careful who you pick on @LFFStadium during @Eagles…

  12. The Evster: What kinda name is Drew Brees anyway?

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:02 AM EDT


    Ready for some quick, mind-blowing, knock-your-balls-off Evster research? The name Drew is of Welsh origin meaning “wise” (seriously, I looked it up), so it’s only fitting that Drew Brees would grow up to be one of football’s all-time smartest quarterbacks. Strong arm? Sure. Accurate? Absolutely. Lame haircut? You know it. But what sets Drew apart…

  13. DeSean Jackson gives up to the minute snow updates

    Jan 2, 2014, 10:28 PM EDT


    In case you don’t have windows, Ya Boi Djacc has you covered. DeSean Jackson may be an All-World wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles but he may be giving local weather forecasters on Twitter a run for their money this evening. And the caption to go along with the photo: SnowLife out here in Philly…

  14. If you haven’t heard yet, you certainly will: Nick Foles and Drew Brees went to same Texas high school

    Jan 2, 2014, 4:06 PM EDT


    It’s true. The two quarterbacks going up against each other in the NFC playoffs on Saturday night attended the same high school in Austin, Texas. That’s a fun quirky fact you’ll likely hear a couple of times on the telecast on Saturday. But it’s not as fun as one might hope. Nick Foles and Drew…

  15. thekrisheim’s 2013 Year in Philly Sports

    Jan 2, 2014, 11:48 AM EDT

    Delmon Young

    One of our favorite end of year traditions here at is having one of our longest tenured commenters and friend, thekrisheim, reflect back on the year in Philly sports that was. You can read his look back at 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and today his look back at 2013 below. No playoffs, new…

  16. NFL Films segment on the Phish and Russell Wilson connection is great

    Jan 2, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT


    Alternative post title: “Of course we’re going to post the Phish and Russell Wilson NFL Films segment.” For the unfamiliar, Phish is a rock band from Burlington, Vermont and Russell Wilson is an NFL quarterback who plays for the Seattle Seahawks. The story of how the two came together for a NFL Films segment is…

  17. 5 reasons Philly sports fans should be excited for 2014

    Jan 1, 2014, 3:52 PM EDT


    5. Playoffs! 2013 came and went, and not one of the big four managed to reach their respective sport’s postseason. In fact, we have to go all the way back to May of 2012 when the Flyers and 76ers both advanced to the quarterfinals. Philadelphia did have some postseason representation in 2013. La Salle’s men’s…

  18. The Eagles know they’re hot right now

    Jan 1, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT


    It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. Get hot at the end of the season, squeak into the playoffs, and anything can happen. The Philadelphia Eagles know this as demonstrated by a pretty confident Shady McCoy who spoke with the media on New Year’s Day. From Eagles 24/7 beat writer Sheil Kapadia: LeSean…

  19. The two most popular photo galleries of 2013: Ice cold football and warm sunny beaches with cheerleaders

    Dec 31, 2013, 1:10 PM EDT


    It’s always fun to look back at the year in website posts to see what was most popular. It’s also not exactly surprising to see that the two most popular photo galleries on in 2013 were the Philadelphia Eagles football game played in a blizzard at the Linc and a team cheerleading event that…

  20. Winning on the road is hard to do in the NFL

    Dec 30, 2013, 6:57 PM EDT


    Admit it. Some of you thought beating the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East championship was going to be easy. Without Tony Romo? With the worst defense in the NFL? In the month of December, that franchise’s Kryptonite the last bunch of years? The Philadelphia Eagles did eventually take care of business, but it was…

  21. Video: Philadelphia Eagles, playoff party crashers

    Dec 30, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT


    You gotta hand it to the Philadelphia Eagles. Not only did they beat the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas to take the NFC East and earn a trip to the playoffs, but the organization has become extremely good at producing these hype videos. The latest in the series gets us prepared for the playoffs, which start…

  22. Photo and Video of the Night: ‘Rowdy’ the Cowboys’ mascot is sad, alone, dejected; Separately, Monty G makes sounds

    Dec 30, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT


    This is Rowdy. He’s the Cowboys’ mascot. This is Rowdy (courtesy USA Today Images) sitting on a chair, by himself, in AT&T Stadium following the Eagles’ 24-22, NFC East-clinching win over the Cowboys Sunday night. Below, conversely, is an Eagles fan named Monty G. You may already be familiar with his work. Skip ahead 50…

  23. A few NFL writers/analysts eating their words on Chip Kelly and the Eagles

    Dec 30, 2013, 12:49 AM EDT

    It’s the job of a writer or analyst — whether in print, on TV or this newfangled interweb thingy — to make bold statements. We’ve done it here at The Level, and we’ve been wrong sometimes, too. But with the Eagles going worst to first after Sunday night’s win over the Dallas Cowboys, we thought…


    Dec 29, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT


    It was no cake walk, but the Philadelphia Eagles took care of business in Dallas, defeating the rival Cowboys 24-22 to win the NFC East crown and a spot in the postseason. One year after posting a 4-12 record under Andy Reid, the Birds are 10-6 in Chip Kelly’s first season on the sideline. They…

  25. LeSean McCoy, the best Eagles running back you’ve ever seen

    Dec 29, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy

    Remember when everyone assumed Chip Kelly was going to come in and throw the ball all over the field? People who never watched college football assumed that because his Oregon teams scored 724 points per game, they never ran the ball. Well, LeSean McCoy never got that memo. With a second-quarter run Sunday night, McCoy…
