  1. If nothing else, Eagles are safe at safety again

    When was the last time the Philadelphia Eagles had two reliable (let alone competent) safeties in their defensive backfield? We have to go back to 2008, when future Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins and uber-solid Quintin Mikell were patrolling the secondary. With the re-signing of Nate Allen to a one-year contract on Monday, it appears…

  2. Is Nate Allen good now, part of the Eagles’ future beyond this season?

    Rueben Randle, Nate Allen

    One of the more incredible developments this season has been the emergence of the Eagles’ bend-don’t-break defense, which has now made it eight straight games holding opponents to 21 points or less. It’s quite the reversal from a year ago, when the Birds’ D did not allow fewer than 21 over their final 11. What’s…

  3. RG3: Eagles defense ‘knew what was coming’

    We get so caught up talking about the quarterback sometimes, it’s easy to gloss over the job the Eagles’ defense has done this season. They’ve now gone seven consecutive games without allowing an opposing offense to score 21 or more points in a game, and nine of 11 this season. The rankings still have Philadelphia…

    You wouldn’t think it just to look at the group on paper, but the Eagles’ defense has played well more often than it has not this season. To reiterate, they’ve had more good games so far than bad. Yes, I’m aware Philadelphia is ranked 31st overall in total defense and 30th in points allowed. Yes,…

  5. Hold Your Horses: Chip Kelly’s Debut Exaggerated by Floundering Redskins

    One of the pressing questions for the Eagles heading into this season was what if Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense goes three and out, and their defense had to go back right on the field after they just came off? New question: what if the Birds’ opponent goes three and out on offense? The answer is…

  6. Eagles-Redskins Storylines and Predictions: Can Birds’ D Keep RG3 and Alfred Morris from Spoiling Chip Kelly’s Debut?

    Is RG3 Ready? There’s already more coverage of Robert Griffin III than you can shake a stick at – even I wrote about him last week – so chances are you’re sick of hearing about the Redskins’ quarterback. We won’t spend dwell on this, but it’s worth noting RG3 is only eight months removed from…
