    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…

  2. 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…

  3. Eagles-Cowboys, Week 17, Sunday Night Football, for the NFC East title

    Dec 29, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT


    Eagles fans have been waiting all week for this. Some of us have been waiting all season. Improbable as it seemed to a few, this matchup in Dallas has been setting up as the decisive battle for the NFC East championship since the schedule was released back in April. Winners move on to the playoffs.…

  5. Eagles Pro Bowl snubs, ranked

    Dec 28, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT


    With a 9-6 record, the second-ranked offense in the NFL, and a defense that’s held 10 of its last 11 opponents to 21 points or less, the Philadelphia Eagles managed to send just two players to the 2014 Pro Bowl. Running back LeSean McCoy and left tackle Jason Peters were beyond worthy candidates, but where’s…

  6. Terrell Owens uses cheesesteaks, bikini models, and Philly hate to sell burgers

    Dec 27, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT


    If your family is anything like mine then you likely had a conversation over Christmas dinner that went something like this: “Whatever happened to Terrell Owens? I haven’t seen any news about him trying out to become professional bowler or play basketball against little people or even make a CFL or LFL team lately? I…

  7. Nnamdi Asomugha to retire from football—we get Nnamdi’d one last time

    Dec 26, 2013, 11:30 PM EDT


    Wide receivers around the NFL shed some tears on Thursday evening upon hearing the news that four-time All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is retiring from pro football. Multiple outlets are reporting Asomugha will sign a one-day contract with the Oakland Raiders on Friday then ride off into the sunset. He last played for the San Francisco…

    Dec 26, 2013, 11:04 AM EDT

    Chip Kelly, Nick Foles, Riley Cooper

    The year 2013 got off to a pretty good start for Philadelphia sports fans, with the firing on New Years’ Eve of Andy Reid. Unfortunately, nothing else good happened for quite awhile, with the Phillies, Sixers and Flyers all turning in awful seasons. It was another year without a local championship, just like all of…

  10. Tony Romo won’t Romo division away because he’s out for the season

    Dec 23, 2013, 4:44 PM EDT

    Tony Romo

    Didn’t see this one coming. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a back injury, which means the Philadelphia Eagles will be facing Kyle Orton in Week 17 for the NFC East title. Honestly, it’s a shame. While it gives the…

    APTOPIX Lions Eagles Football

    It wasn’t long ago that our year-end lists of best and worst Philly games of the year were chock full of things like playoff clinchers, post-season upsets, and crushing losses when a championship legitimately seemed in reach. Sad to say, the stakes for sports in the city of Philadelphia were a lot lower in 2013,…

  13. Video: ‘Santa’ interrupts Chip Kelly’s news conference

    Dec 23, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT


    It’s not often Santa comes off looking like a dope. “Santa Claus” decided to drop in on Chip Kelly’s day-after press conference on Monday to give the Philadelphia Eagles an early present, tell a corny joke or two and let everybody know that Nick Foles is his quarterback for the next 1,000 years, too. In…

  14. Photos: It was so warm in December the Eagles cheerleaders still wore shorts

    Bears Eagles Football

    December 2013 will forever be known as the month with both the blizzardy conditions Snow Bowl and the game on December 22nd that was so damn warm the Eagles cheerleaders still wore shorts. I guess global warming does have some advantages at times. Philadelphia reached record highs yesterday with the thermometer topping out at 68…

  15. ‘We want Dallas! We want Dallas!’

    Dec 23, 2013, 12:08 AM EDT


    The Chicago Bears had everything to play for with a division title on the line. The Philadelphia Eagles had the bare minimum to gain—improved seeding in the playoffs, if they get in. Guess which team showed up? The Eagles blew the doors off the visiting Bears 54-11 at Lincoln Financial Field in front of a…

  16. Watch Chip Kelly: ‘We’re from Philadelphia and we fight’

    Dec 22, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT


    When you absolutely beat the living daylights out of a team on prime time in front of a national audience, it’s only fitting you show a little swagger afterwards. It started with LeSean McCoy in his postgame chat on the field with NBC’s Michele Tafoya. “I think this week we got fitted for the crown,…

  17. Shady McCoy’s Madden-like spin move

    Dec 22, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Eagles are cruising past the Chicago Bears tonight en route to an NFC East showdown with the Cowboys next Sunday evening. But before we focus on the serious task at hand in Dallas, it’s worth savoring this one. Nobody makes you appreciate the beauty of football more than Shad McCoy. He’s padded his…

  18. Eagles at Cowboys flexed to Sunday night for NFC East crown

    Dec 22, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT


    NBC executives are probably a lot like you. They want to watch Shady McCoy play football as much as possible. It was announced during halftime of the Eagles vs. Bears games tonight on NBC that the Birds’ game next Sunday against the Cowboys will be flexed to the prime time slot on Sunday Night Football.…

  19. Tony Romo puts damper on big party potential tonight at the Linc; next week in Dallas for NFC East crown

    Cowboys Redskins Football

    It’s never a great thing when you’re counting on the Washington Redskins. Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys found a way to fight back today down in DC and juuuust missed crumbling for the second week in a row. The Redskins had the Cowboys up against the ropes in the fourth quarter but Romo found…

  20. Report: Michael Vick ‘open’ to returning to Eagles in 2014

    Dec 22, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT


    Michael Vick will be a free agent at season’s end, and there’s little doubt he would like to start in the NFL—he’s said as much. But suppose there isn’t much interest in a 34-year-old quarterback with two career playoff wins. What will Vick do then? Perhaps the four-time Pro Bowler will return to the Philadelphia…

  21. Eagles won’t rest their starters this week… but the Bears might

    Dec 20, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT


    Chip Kelly was adamant that the Philadelphia Eagles would play their starters this Sunday night against the Chicago Bears, regardless of the game’s influence in the standings. His opponent, on the other hand, is not so sure. Turns out the Birds aren’t the only team that might not have that much to play for this…

    When I say, “KILL!” you say, “BEARS!” KILL! BEARS! KILL! Welllllllllllll, I sort of really like bears. Both the animal and the football team. They’re so furry and cuddly, and have never changed their helmets, and even though Philly fans are supposed to be the ANGRIEST fans around, it’s kinda hard to hate a city…

  23. Comment of the week sponsored by Smith’s Restaurant and Bar: On questionable Chip play calling

    Dec 18, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT


    If you’re not going to be down at the Linc on Sunday night for the big game against the Bears, the smart move would be to head to Smith’s Restaurant and Bar in Rittenhouse and surround yourself with fellow Eagles fans. Nothing like a good random high five after a big touchdown — unless you…

  24. Eagles playoff scenarios: Philly can clinch versus Chicago on Sunday

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:57 PM EDT


    We’ve been fielding quite a few questions over the past 24 hours or so about the remaining playoff scenarios for the Philadelphia Eagles over the final two weeks of the season. So as a public service, here’s a quick, handy guide for the remaining possibilities, as there are only a few. First and foremost, the…

  25. Jerry Jones doesn’t hire a GM because he’ll just ruin the Cowboys anyway

    Dec 17, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Eagles got knocked down a peg on Sunday, but that’s okay, because the Dallas Cowboys in December. Tony Romo shoulders a lot of the blame for their historic collapse—as well he should—but let’s not forget their porous defense, clueless coaching staff, and most of all, the man behind the curtain. It’s a Dallas…
