  1. Eagles on pace to break NFL’s all-time rushing mark

    Sep 26, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Is LeSean McCoy the best running back in the NFL today? We actually asked that very question back in 2011, when Shady was en route to a league-high 20 touchdowns and wound up finishing fifth in yards from scrimmage with 1,624 in 15 games. There were backs who wound up with better totals, but for…

  2. Random Eagles Thoughts: 1-2, Time of Possession, and Mike Vick

    Sep 23, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    chip-vick

    On Being 1-2 Expectations are on a roller coaster. They started low before the season got underway, climbed exponentially after the Eagles throttled Washington in Week 1, now we’re down in the dumps after consecutive losses. All the while, how good this team actually is likely still lies somewhere in between. That said, their 1-2…

  3. Video: Chip Kelly’s Phone Goes Off, He Gets Embarrassed

    Sep 20, 2013, 4:25 PM EDT

    chip-kelly-hat

    Rough couple days for Chip Kelly, whose team has lost its last two in a row, whose two-point conversion tried last night failed, and whose cell phone went off in the middle of his press conference Friday. Anybody recognize the song? It sounds familiar, but I can’t place it. [Update: Commenter “thewrongalex” tells us it’s…

  4. Vick: ‘I take sole responsibility’ for loss to Chiefs

    Vick: “I take sole responsibility for what happened tonight. I didn’t execute.” — Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) September 20, 2013 That’s awfully noble of you, Mike. Don’t get me wrong, you deserve some of the blame, but there is plenty of it to go around the Eagles’ locker room after their 26-16 loss to the Kansas…

  5. Eagles-Chiefs: Commence The Andy Bowl

    Sep 19, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    big-red

    It’s rare when any game on the Eagles’ schedule takes on an air of meaning larger than any against, say, the Cowboys or Giants. Maybe this isn’t it quite on that level either, but there is certainly a greater feeling of importance surrounding tonight’s contest than a regular season meeting against the Kansas City Chiefs…

  6. Eagles as West Bromwich Albion? This “Pick Your Team” Thing Goes the Other Way, Too

    Sep 19, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Screen shot from The Guardian.

    The Union are on a bye week. Their playoff hopes, which seemed so promising less than a month ago, are now gasping for air in the deepest portion of the Delaware River. The only thing positive that came out of Saturday night’s 1-0 loss to Houston was my nearly 2-year-old son’s initiation into Lot A…

  7. The Eagles Made Dubious History in Their Loss to the Chargers

    Sep 17, 2013, 5:27 PM EDT

    nate-allen-file-photo

    Now that we’ve had a couple days to reflect on the Eagles’ 33-30 loss in their home opener on Sunday, I actually feel quite a bit better about it. Sure, the defense is an utter mess, but despite conceding 419 yards and three touchdowns through the air to quarterback Philip Rivers and forcing just one…

  8. The Eagles Need Safety at Help: Wait… No, That Sounds About Right

    Sep 16, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    nate-facemask

    It’s been so long since Philadelphians have experienced good safety play, they might not recognize it if they saw it. On the other hand, we’ve become connoisseurs of sorts when it comes to bad safety play, and Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field was something of a tasting festival. I’m not going to add too much…

  9. Key Mismatches Favor the Eagles in Week 2 Versus the Chargers

    Sep 14, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    celek-sd

    Breaking down matchups the Eagles could potentially exploit against their upcoming opponent was often an exercise in futility during the Andy Reid era. It didn’t matter whether the Raiders had the 32nd-ranked run defense in the NFL or winds were gusting up to 60 miles per hour in Cincinnati. The Birds were throwing the football.…

  10. Should the Eagles Trade Vinny Curry?

    Sep 11, 2013, 3:03 PM EDT

    curry

    There was a lot of surprise and disappointment when Vinny Curry’s name popped up on the inactive list for Week 1. The 2012 second-round pick was coming off a monster preseason where it appeared at times as if he was unstoppable, but on Monday he found himself caught up in the numbers game again. Chip…

  11. Vick and McCoy’s Usage Should be Monitored During Early Portion of Schedule

    Sep 11, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    lesean.mccoy

    The Washington Redskins defense weren’t the only ones who looked completely exhausted by the end of the Eagles’ 33-27 win on Monday night. Michael Vick was hit seven times on dropbacks and ran nine times with the football, and was noticeably hobbled in the final minutes. By his career-high 31st carry, LeSean McCoy practically needed…

  12. DeSean Jackson Owns the Redskins, Says Defenses ‘better get in shape’

    Sep 10, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    desean-hall

    Among the most positive signs from the Eagles’ 33-point offensive outburst on Monday night had to be the performance of DeSean Jackson, at least as far as individuals are concerned. Coming off of consecutive seasons with declining numbers, the two-time Pro Bowler showed he’s ready to serve as the torchbearer for the wide receivers in…

  13. Chip Kelly, Never Satisfied, Wants Eagles to Be Even Faster

    Sep 10, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    chip-playchart

    No, really. Chip Kelly thought the Eagles were a bit slow with their pace of play last night. Not satisfied with running 417 plays*, Kelly pointed to players not getting the ball back to officials quick enough after plays, instead leaving the ball on the ground. After watching last night’s game, I think Eagles fans…

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

    Sep 10, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    chip-vick

    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…

    These photos are real. Taken by the Associated Press from tonight’s Eagles victory over the Redskins. And they are glorious. Not only did Chip Kelly make one hell of a first impression with the city of Philadelphia with the game he called, he also showed a sense of humor with his playcards you see below.…

  16. ENOUGH TALK: Eagles Finally Kick Off Chip Kelly Era in Washington Tonight

    Sep 9, 2013, 5:43 PM EDT

    vick-chip

    This is the day we’ve been waiting since before Chip Kelly was hired, when it was becoming apparent Andy Reid’s run was coming to an end. Some disgruntled followers have no doubt been waiting even longer. But the time has finally come for this Chip fella to show us why he was one of the…

  17. Vick: Eagles’ Offense ‘Something like you’ve never seen before’

    Sep 9, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    vick-jags

    We’re counting down the seconds until Chip Kelly unveils his offense for the entire NFL-watching world to see. Preseason offered only a glimpse into what the first-year head coach has in store for the Eagles; now it’s time see the real thing. If Michael Vick is to be believed, we’re in for a real treat.…

  18. @FakeWIPCaller’s Essential 2013 Eagles Preview: 10 Things I Hate About the Eagles

    Sep 6, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    Michael Vick

    For all those years, every true Eagles fan prayed that one day, we’d at last be rid of Joe Banner, Donovan McNabb, and Andy Reid. One by one, we got our wish. So why does being an Eagles fan still suck? Here are ten reasons why, counting down: 10. Michael Vick, whose last playoff win…

  19. 2013 Philadelphia Eagles: Predictions for All 16 Games

    Sep 5, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    mccoy-skins

    Week 1 at Washington – Win, 37-27 Chip Kelly shocks the world with his offense – by coming out and running the triple option out of the Flexbone on Monday Night Football. Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, and Bryce Brown combine to rush for over 300 yards against the Redskins, who are caught completely off-guard by…

  20. ESPN Writers Hate the Eagles, Love Andy Reid

    Sep 4, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    USA Today Images

    ESPN.com’s stable of NFL writers released their “expert” guesses predictions for the 2013 season ahead on Tuesday, and believe it or not, the Eagles didn’t receive a whole lot of love. Not a single one of them chose the Birds to come out on top in the NFC East this year, and by my count…

  21. Danny Watkins Headlines Cuts as Eagles Get Down to 53 Players

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:05 PM EDT

    watkins

    Nothing cements a player’s bust status quite like the moment he’s released. The time came for Danny Watkins on Saturday as the Eagles trimmed their roster to 53 players in preparation for the regular season. We knew going in to training camp that Watkins had virtually no opportunity to start. Birds head coach Chip Kelly…

  22. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly from the Eagles’ Third Preseason Game

    Aug 24, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    Despite pulling out a 31-24 win in Jacksonville on Saturday night, there is no question this will go down as the most disappointing of the Eagles’ four preseason games. All you’re really looking for from these glorified scrimmages is execution, and it was lacking in bounds by Chip Kelly’s squad. The offense looked sloppy and…

    Aug 24, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    vick-jags

    This has been the most exciting Eagles preseason in recent memory, probably since at least 2004, but it doesn’t take very long to grow weary of games that don’t count toward the standings. I think I speak for everybody – fans, players, even the coaching staff – when I say I’m ready to get to…

  24. Coming to Terms with Vick as the Eagles’ Starting QB… Again

    Aug 21, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    vick-point

    There may not be a more outspoken critic of Michael Vick the football player than myself since his arrival in Philadelphia in 2009. It’s got nothing to do with past criminal behavior – he paid his debt to society. In fact, I kind of like the reformed Mike. He strikes me as a thoughtful and…

  25. What They’re Saying: Players and Coaches React to Vick Being Named Eagles’ QB

    Aug 20, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    Chip Kelly dropped some big news today, naming Mike Vick the Eagles’ starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Washington Redskins and the foreseeable future. He probably could have waited another week to make an announcement, but Vick was clearly ahead of Nick Foles after the last preseason game and that was unlikely to change,…
