Eagles

  1. Mike Vick Now Among Bearded Philly-Athletes Elite

    May 14, 2011, 6:47 PM EDT

    Many of the Eagles got together over the weekend in support of the DeSean Jackson foundation’s efforts in the fight against pancreatic cancer. Aside from supporting their teammate and a great cause, much of the talk revolved around informal team workouts to be held at a yet-to-be-determined location. Mike Vick spoke to reporters about these…

  2. Quotable: DeSean Jackson to Lobby for Asomugha

    May 13, 2011, 11:13 AM EDT

    Athletes want to get paid, but there’s also a recent trend, mostly surrounding our beloved Phillies, where a player may choose to go to a team he really wants to go to even if it’s not for the absolute most money he could have gotten — money on the table. Now, that’s not to say…

  3. Kolb-Watch, Day 1,475: Yours for the Bargain Price of Two Seconds?

    May 12, 2011, 12:37 PM EDT

    One Cardinals beat writer thinks so. Kent Somers with the Arizona Republic blogged about Kevin Kolb’s value yesterday, and he concluded a package of picks headlined by a first may be too rich for the Eagles quarterback. Somers compared Kolb’s situation to that of Matt Schaub, which is funny because he too was blocked by…

  4. DeSean Jackson Is Enjoying His Offseason

    May 12, 2011, 12:04 PM EDT

    So that’s what DJacc has been upto…

  5. Bernard Hopkins Felt the Need To Open His Mouth About Donovan McNabb Again

    May 11, 2011, 1:56 PM EDT

    Bernard Hopkins is one of the greatest boxers of his generation and a Philly guy taboot. We’d probably hold him in a much higher regard, however, if he didn’t consistently feel the need to pick on Donovan McNabb. What exactly Hopkins has against McNabb is unclear, but B-Hop has waged a verbal assault on Donovan…

  6. On The Potential QB Market

    May 10, 2011, 10:03 AM EDT

    NFL.com blogger Elliott Harrison takes an interesting look at the experienced quarterbacks that are available that a team like the Cardinals could look to to run their offense if a league year ever happens. Harrison agrees that Kolb is likely the hottest commodity out there but he believes it’s based more on what team’s think…

  7. Around the NFC East: Asomugha to Dallas?

    May 9, 2011, 10:46 AM EDT

    Asomugha to Dallas? Vince Young to the Redskins? And a look at the Giants continued improvement on defense.

  8. Mayor Nutter Plays QB for the Soul On the Streets of Philadelphia

    May 6, 2011, 10:46 AM EDT

    The Philadelphia Soul decided it’d be a fun idea to hold an open tryout/promotion of sorts in the heart of Center City Philadelphia on Thursday afternoon. As part owner Ron Jaworski told SportsNite, the Soul isn’t exactly the No. 1 football team in this town, so they have to do things a little different. They…

  9. Watkins Selection Can Be Judged From Day One

    May 4, 2011, 1:52 PM EDT

    Whatever players were on the board at 23, whether right guard was the biggest need or not, there is one simple way to break down the Eagles’ first round pick this year. If Danny Watkins is starting Week 1, it was the right call. Was it the sexy pick? Far from it. Colorado’s Jimmy Smith…

  10. That 2011 Eagles Draft That Happened

    May 2, 2011, 8:57 PM EDT

    Perhaps I’m in the minority here, but the whole NFL lockout business really took away much of the hype surrounding this year’s draft for me. Both in the weeks leading up to it as well as following along as it happened, my interest levels this year weren’t as sky high as usual. I’d say the…

  11. Eagles Draft Wrap-Up: The Lockout Is On Again

    May 2, 2011, 5:17 PM EDT

    Just when teams began allowing the players to use their facilities again, and amid whispers the league year could start as early as Monday, the court of appeals granted the NFL a stay on the Judge Nelson ruling that supposedly reopened the league for business. For the time being, everything will immediately return to square…

  12. Eagles Select Temple Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, Utah State Corner Curtis Marsh UPDATED

    May 2, 2011, 4:20 PM EDT

    With the 54th pick in the NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles have selected Temple safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, making him the highest drafted Philadelphia college athlete the Birds have taken since Villanova quarterback Jim Grazione in 1959. A four year starter for the Owls, Jarrett is capable of playing either safety position, bringing versatility to an…

  13. What They’re Saying: Danny Watkins

    May 2, 2011, 2:16 PM EDT

    A quick look around the Internets to see what people are saying about Eagles 2011 first round draft pick Danny Watkins. Sheil Kapadia, Moving the Chains: The best thing that you can say about the Watkins pick is that he should be a plug and play player, as Mike Mayock would say. According to DraftMetrics.com, …

  14. Canadian Danny Watkins Learns Quick, Says He’s Already a Flyers Fan

    May 2, 2011, 2:12 PM EDT

    Sure, he may have been goaded into his answer, but hockey-loving Canadian Danny Watkins says he’s already a Flyers fan. Pretty sure Philly fans are gonna like this guy (even if they didn’t love the pick).

  15. Eagles Draft 26-Year-Old Rookie, OL Danny Watkins

    May 2, 2011, 2:11 PM EDT

    On one hand, the Eagles filled a position of need in the first round of the NFL draft. On the other, he’ll already be 27-years-old before the post-season rolls around. Nonetheless, for the first time since 2006, the Birds stood pat in their draft position, choosing Baylor’s Danny Watkins. The 6’3″, 310 lbs. offensive lineman…

  16. What Will the Birds Do in the First Round?

    May 2, 2011, 1:47 PM EDT

    Just a quick pulse-taking among the Philadelphia faithful—which of the following do you think the Eagles will do in the first round of the NFL Draft tonight?     (A) Make a selection at 23     (B) Trade up         (C) Trade down If you pick A, let us know which player or position you think they’ll target. Two…

  17. “With the 23rd pick…” What Is the Eagles’ Biggest Need?

    May 2, 2011, 1:41 PM EDT

    Last night, I was all set to fix the final installment of our draft preview, but instead, I called an audible to insist the Eagles trade Kevin Kolb. Sure, it was pure fantasy. The NFL won’t allow player trades tonight (swapping picks is LEGAL however), despite the fact that the lockout ended three nights ago.…

  18. The Eagles Should Trade Kevin Kolb — Right Now

    May 2, 2011, 1:34 PM EDT

    Technically, the NFL lockout is over. Maybe it will be reenacted, maybe not, but at this very moment, only the league thinks this thing is still on. What can stop an intrepid team such as the Eagles from making moves? While it would be extremely unpopular among a group of owners desperately calling for timeout,…

  19. What About the Offensive Line?

    May 2, 2011, 12:21 PM EDT

    The Eagles’ problems on defense are well documented. They have a new defensive coordinator, Juan Castillo. The unit he takes over gave up a franchise record 31 touchdown passes last season, while sporting a historically pathetic 78% conversion rate inside the red zone. We did  a whole series on what they need to do to…

  20. Michael Vick Speaks Out Against Dog Fighting App, Thereby Bringing It to All of Our Attention

    Apr 26, 2011, 5:54 PM EDT

    When I woke up this morning, I didn’t know there was an app for Android phones that appears to involve raising and training virutal dogs for the purposes of fighting. I’ve still not actually seen it. But I have seen, read, and heard that Michael Vick has spoken out against the app along with various…

  21. The NFL Lockout Is Over (For Now, Sort Of)

    Apr 26, 2011, 12:13 PM EDT

    Big football news out of Minnesota this evening, where Judge Susan Nelson has granted the players an injunction in their antitrust lawsuit against the NFL, lifting the lockout. The news per ESPN’s Chris Mortensen indicates the owners will appeal the ruling as expected. In the meantime, the owners requested an immediate “stay” that would keep…

  22. Do Eagles Need to Draft a Cornerback in Round 1?

    Apr 26, 2011, 12:13 PM EDT

    Even before the Andy Reid era began, Philadelphia’s defense was routinely anchored by a pair of Pro Bowl caliber cornerbacks, and 2010 might have been no different, if only the front office held on to Sheldon Brown. Instead, the Eagle of eight years was traded while the getting was still good, packaged with Chris Gocong…
