  1. Everybody is piling on Tony Romo’s choke job

    Dec 16, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    Packers Cowboys Football

    Tony Romo and the Cowboys put together a spectacular display of fourth quarter ineptitude on Sunday afternoon. For whatever unknown reason, the Cowboys opted to throw the ball over and over instead of hand it off to help the clock tickaway as they had a pretty damn comfortable lead. Romo gave us all an early…

  2. Meltdown in Minneapolis: Eagles streak snapped in 48-30 loss to Vikings

    Dec 15, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    cassel-td

    This had “trap game” written all over it. Shades of Joe Webb some fans even lamented in the lead-up to Sunday. Whether this loss will be remembered similarly in Philadelphia Eagles lore probably depends on how they finish the season, but today, it feels devastating. After holding nine straight opponents to 21 points or fewer,…

  3. GIF: Nick Foles’ block woulda been pretty sweet if it wasn’t illegal

    Foles.illegal.block

    Going for it on 4th and 1 is a ballsy move. Calling a double reverse on 4th and 1 is the ballsiest. Chip Kelly did both. Maybe you didn’t like Chip getting extra cute when he only needed a yard to move the chains — Hi, Shady McCoy — but the play worked beautifully. Right…

  4. Report: University of Texas wants Chip Kelly

    Dec 15, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    When the Philadelphia Eagles’ record was 3-5, there might’ve been a shred of doubt Chip Kelly would go crawling back to college for the right offer. Now that the Birds are 8-5 and making a strong push for the playoffs, Chip’s retreat just doesn’t seem possible. Apparently, that won’t stop the University of Texas from…

  5. Report: No Adrian Peterson for Vikings vs. Eagles

    Dec 15, 2013, 9:24 AM EDT

    Adrian Peterson, Kurt Coleman

    Philadelphia Eagles fans hoping Sunday’s showdown in Minnesota will be a walk in the park received some good news late Saturday night. Running back and reigning NFL Most Valuable Player Adrian Peterson has been ruled out for today’s game according to Vikings analyst Sean Jensen. In addition to Peterson being out with a foot injury,…

  6. The Eagles are in ridiculously good health

    Dec 13, 2013, 2:29 PM EDT

    chip.kelly

    Yeah, yeah, we’re jinxing them. Now that we got that out of the way, you really have to marvel at how bare the Philadelphia Eagles injury report is for this time of year. As the Birds prepare for Sunday’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings, just four players make the report. Starting safety Earl Wolff (knee)…

  7. Connor Barwin says Eagles used medical latex gloves under football gloves for Snow Bowl

    Fan favorite Connor Barwin was a guest on Jimmy Traina’s podcast over at FoxSports.com today and shared a couple of the secrets the Eagles used during the Snow Bowl against the Lions in frigid Philadelphia last week. Some of the tricks to stay warm were pretty typical, like a long-john type pant underneath their actual…

  8. Chip Kelly doesn’t believe in any stupid SI cover jinx; but the power of the conch compels

    Dec 11, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    foles-cover

    A couple of solid one-liners from Chipper at his Wednesday press conference. First, he was asked about Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles being jinxed due to the second-year quarterback earning a spot on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated. Q: Are you aware of the @SInow cover jinx? Coach Kelly: I don’t believe…

  9. Comment of the week sponsored by Smith’s Restaurant and Bar: On the Snow Bowl atmosphere

    Our January 23rd, The700Level.com meetup at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar in Rittenhouse is quickly approaching. Just a few reminders that it’s a Thursday night so you really should have no excuse not to come, the Flyers will be on many of their 11 televisions, but really it’ll be a great chance to mingle with both…

  10. Nick Foles gets the Sports Illustrated cover treatment

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

    foles-cover

    Even though it may not mean as much as it did 10-20 years ago, making the cover of Sports Illustrated is still pretty damn cool. Chalk it up as just the latest honor bestowed upon Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles. The unforgettable sight of Foles standing tall in the face of a blizzard has now…

  11. Here’s a lovely Winter Wonderland video of the Snow Bowl

    #SnowBowl from Philadelphia Eagles on Vimeo. Playing in the snow never gets old. Playing in the snow and winning a huge football game going away is something you’ll remember forever. The folks behind the #FlyEaglesFly campaign put together this lovely video from the Snow Bowl victory set to the holiday classic, Winter Wonderland. The “and…

  12. Cowboys lose, Eagles take over first place, obligatory Jerry Jones sad face

    Dec 10, 2013, 12:07 AM EDT

    sad-jerry-chicago

    It’s only fitting that the hottest team in the NFL is also in first place. By virtue of a 45-28 Dallas Cowboys loss on Monday Night Football, the Philadelphia Eagles have taken over sole possession of the lead in the NFC East. In the grand scheme of things, the designation means very little. The Eagles…

  13. Photos and Time Lapse: This is what Eagles fans faced upon returning to the parking lot Sunday

    This picture was taken at about 6 p.m. Sunday, and comes to us courtesy CSNPhilly’s Tim Riday, who like most of you just wanted to go home at that point.

    Chip Kelly, Nick Foles, Shady McCoy and the rest of the Eagles weren’t the only professionals to put on a hell of a performance during the blizzard in South Philadelphia on Sunday. The guys with the cameras in their hands from the Associated Press, USA Today Sports, and other outlets used the serene setting to…

  15. Biggest takeaway from Eagles Sunday: LeSean McCoy calls Nick Foles “Folesy”

    Dec 9, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

    AP-foles-mccoy

    You can debate whether or not Nick Foles has the makings of a true NFL quarterback–well, maybe you could a couple weeks ago, now the debate’s getting kinda one-sided–but he’s definitely lacking in at least one intangible category: His name kinda stinks. Peyton Manning, that’s a quarterback name. Tom Brady. Cam Newton. Andrew Luck. Michael…

  16. The time ‘genius’ head coach Chip Kelly deferred to Cary Williams

    Dec 9, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    Want to know what makes Chip Kelly smarter than a lot of other bosses around the NFL? He knows he doesn’t always have all the answers and is willing to take good advice—even when it comes from a player. The Philadelphia Eagles’ offense was stranded in a ditch somewhere off of I-95 until cornerback Cary…

  17. Eagles officially the hottest team in the NFL

    Dec 8, 2013, 11:31 PM EDT

    eagles-oline-snow

    It’s cold outside and there’s snow on the ground, but the Philadelphia Eagles are white hot. With their 34-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, the Birds now own the longest winning streak in the NFL at five games. The Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers were the only two teams that owned longer streaks…

  18. Snowballs fly in Washington, Baltimore — classless Philadelphia Eagles fans likely to blame

    Dec 8, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    APTOPIX Lions Eagles Football

    In the pantheon of overblown/overdone/dead horse beaten things in Philadelphia sports, “they threw snowballs at Santa” is right up there with booing Michael Irvin and cheesesteak B-roll on national television. So far at least, we have heard no real horror stories from today’s game at the Linc. Judging by Twitter and online reactions, everyone seemed…

  19. LeSean McCoy pulls Eagles sleigh to incredible win over Lions

    Dec 8, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    LeSean McCoy

    Go ahead, walk outside in the snow right now. Try not to fall. Now, get up. Dust off the snow. And try to cut, juke, and make 300-pound tacklers miss you. LeSean McCoy can. McCoy ran for a team record 217 yards as the Eagles came back from an early hole to beat the Detroit…

    This picture comes to us courtesy CSN video producer Tom Finer, who’s currently working (going to be stuck for a while) inside Wells Fargo Center. It’s not like you’re unaware, but the Linc is maybe only 400 yards away from where this picture was taken: [Snow links: Linc photo gallery | Jason Kelce's beard] As…

    We’ve got something like 30 pictures of Lincoln Financial Field covered in snow right here, but they all pale in comparison to this gif of Jason Kelce from @_MarcusD_: The man is a young Santa Claus.

  23. Origins: How the Eagles came to draft Nick Foles

    Dec 8, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    foles-reid

    There are two really great stories going around about how the Philadelphia Eagles came to select Nick Foles, quarterback from the University of Arizona, with the 88th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and both manage to cover the pick from different angles. The first is Jeff McLane’s in Saturday’s edition of the Philadelphia…

  24. Photo Essay: Patrick Chung wreaking havoc on defense… his own defense

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    chung-4

    Rookie safety Earl Wolff has been ruled out for the Philadelphia Eagles for the third consecutive week, which means Patrick Chung is in line for another start. Chung hates the Eagles. At least it seems like Chung—or Captain Friendly Fire—hates the Eagles. He’s certainly inflicted more punishment on his own teammates in the last two…

  25. Connor Barwin is … THE JACKBACKER

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:28 PM EDT

    connor.barwin

    The Mike’s cool. But you know what’s really cool? The Jack. That’s the name the Eagles have given the position Connor Barwin has been playing for the Eagles as of late because he’s pretty much doing it all on the defensive side of the ball. CSN’s Reuben Frank has a nice article on Barwin today…
