    The full 90-man roster has reported to training camp in Philadelphia, which means preparation for the 2013 season is about to begin in earnest for the Eagles. Before veterans started rolling into the NovaCare Complex on Thursday though, assistant coaches were made available to speak to the media in the morning, and there will no…

  2. Crazy Michael Irvin Says Chip Kelly Would Be ‘Crazy’ Not to Start Mike Vick

    Jul 25, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    michael-irvin-NFL

    The first 60 seconds of this video on NFL.com are borderline incomprehensible. Michael Irvin, in assessing the Eagles’ quarterback battle– Hey, you know what? I’m just going to type his words verbatim. You see if you can make heads or tails of this. Question posed: Michael, is it an upset here if Nick Foles wins…

    In an interview with Paul Domowitch that’s set to run in full inside Thursday’s edition of the Daily News, Donovan McNabb touches on a number of topics related to his Eagles career – his opinion of Philly fans, whether or not he’ll be booed at his retirement ceremony at the Linc this September, and some…

  4. Pulling Back the Curtain on Eagles Sports Science Coordinator Shaun Huls

    Jul 24, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Shaun Huls

    When Chip Kelly introduced his coaching staff back in February, we saw the newly created position of sports science coordinator and wondered what exactly Shaun Huls does. Is that a glorified strength and conditioning coach? Is he the one responsible for the smoothies? Sadly, Chip offered little in the way of insight, and Huls’ role…

  5. Mike Vick: Starter or Not, Eagles and Chip Kelly Are Best Opportunity

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    Michael Vick’s motives are pure. If a 33-year-old quarterback entering his 11th NFL season doesn’t realize the days of shoe deals and video game covers are either over or at least coming to an end, then he’s probably the recipient of some bad advice (DeSean Jackson apparently thinks that’s unlikely for what it’s worth –…

  6. Eagles Get Lane Johnson Under Contract, Now Let’s Go Camping

    Jul 21, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Lane Johnson NFL Draft

    The Birds got their first-round pick to ink his new deal, and with time to spare. After much hand-wringing over “offset language,” Lane Johnson agreed to a four-year contract worth close to $20 million late Saturday night. Johnson was the club’s last rookie left to sign. He will report to training camp on Monday, along…

  7. Dallas Cowboys Intend to Sign Demetress Bell – Celebrate Good Times C’mon!

    Jul 19, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    demetress-bell

    Cowboys fans better pray neither of the team’s offensive tackles gets injured this season. It’s not like they have a Jason Peters or some other All-Pro type down there. No, the problem is Demetress Bell could be on their bench. An ESPN Dallas report says the club intends to sign Bell after he passes a…

    We pick up our training camp preview on the other side of the ball, where Chip Kelly selected long-time NFL assistant Billy Davis to be the defensive coordinator, and the Eagles are widely expected to transition to a 3-4 defense of sorts.

    Guess what? Donovan McNabb has opinions. What a jerk. I know, right? Guess what else? McNabb gets paid to express those opinions by the NFL Network. What a jerk. I know, right? Yeah, but seeing as it is his job and all, we as Eagles fans or members of the media who cover the team…

    Michael Vick’s star hasn’t merely fallen – it’s plummeted. Just a few years removed from being voted the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year, Vick took a pay cut over the winter and now is embroiled in a quarterback competition.

    This is Eagles running back Bryce Brown, and his canine companion is Eilis. Brown asks, “Does this look like a fighting dog to you?” There seems to have been some confusion over a story involving Brown and his family pet over the weekend. Eilis and her litter of puppies were among 27 dogs seized in…

  19. What Exactly Did Chip Kelly Do to Warrant NCAA Sanctions? Not Much

    Jun 27, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    chip-ducks

    You no doubt have heard by now that the NCAA levied sanctions against the University of Oregon football program over recruiting violations between 2008 and 2011. You no doubt have heard this because the big story from the ruling locally was Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is prevented from returning to the Ducks or college…

  20. DeSean Jackson Jumps off Balcony into a Pool, Because That’s Not a Bad Idea

    Jun 20, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT

    I’m generally of the opinion that arguments starting with “Athletes shouldn’t do X” (flamenco dancing, for example) are a little overblown. But when you’re DeSean Jackson, and your entire career is built on your raw athleticism, maybe…just maybe…jumping off a balcony and into a pool is a bad idea. Because maybe…just maybe…it’s a bad idea for…

    There is a quarterback controversy on the Eagles after all. Michael Vick and Nick Foles are… wait for it… cheapskates, and their offensive linemen are fed up with it. How can you tell?

  22. Is Buddy Ryan One of the Worst Head Coaches in Modern NFL History?

    Jun 14, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    We tend to look back on the Buddy Ryan era with a certain fondness despite the fact that he didn’t lead the Eagles to so much as a single playoff win in five seasons as head coach. Let’s not mince words: the man is a Philadelphia legend. Buddy assembled one of the greatest defenses of…

    Today’s Eagles non-controversy: add DeSean Jackson to the list of players who believe it’s important for Chip Kelly to name a starting quarterback ahead of training camp. That puts the list at two and counting. DeSean was grilled about the Birds’ QB competition during an interview on the NFL Network on Tuesday. When pressed about…
