    Jan 22, 2014, 11:14 AM EDT

    ertz-1-hand

    Free agency is right around the corner, and the draft will be here before you know it. With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason in full swing, we’re examining where the roster stands at each position, counting down based on team need. Check out the first installment on running backs. The Philadelphia Eagles could literally change nothing…

  2. Jason Kelce to compete at Wing Bowl

    Jan 21, 2014, 10:44 AM EDT

    Jason Kelce

    Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce could be mildly described as a Pro Bowl snub this year. That’s a position where a lot of the voting is based on reputation, so even though he graded as the best overall center according to metrics site Pro Football Focus, it’s tough for a third-year player to earn an…

  3. Seattle-Denver Super Bowl rare matchup of two best teams

    Jan 20, 2014, 10:02 AM EDT

    trophy

    Obviously, any Super Bowl that doesn’t pit the Philadelphia Eagles against the AFC representative is not the best possible matchup. In terms of who were the best two teams of the 2013-14 season though, this year the big game appears to have gotten it right. For only the second time in the last 20 years,…

  4. Thoughts on Mel Kiper mocking wide receiver to Eagles in first round

    Jan 17, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

    kelvin benjamin

    It’s never too early for a mock draft (it’s almost always too early for a mock draft)—especially when it’s Mel Kiper, Jr., the face of NFL Draft coverage. Needless to say, his first take on the Philadelphia Eagles’ No. 22-overall selection probably raised a few eyebrows. Despite the presence of DeSean Jackson and a clamoring…

  5. Counting Down the Eagles’ Offseason Needs: No. 10, Running Back

    Free agency is right around the corner, and the draft will be here before you know it. With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason in full swing, we’re examining where the roster stands at each position, counting down based on team need. Up first: running back.   How does it feel, Eagles fans? How does it feel…

  6. Quotable: Lesean McCoy thinks Eagles have enough talent to win ‘a couple’ Super Bowls

    Jan 15, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT

    lesean-mccoy-belt-slide

    At first glance, I was going to suggest adding this into the “Dream Team” and “Dynasty” list of the stupid crap Eagles have said about their Super Bowl chances in the recent years. But at second glance, it only sort of fits there. Otherwise, it’s what you’d expect any athlete to say — they think…

  7. Report: Detroit Lions to hire Eagles QB coach Bill Lazor for offensive coordinator post

    Jan 14, 2014, 4:02 PM EDT

    Eagles Buccaneers Football

    Nick Foles is heading to the Pro Bowl. Chip Kelly is taking a lot of the credit. Bill Lazor is—perhaps soon to be was—the man behind the scenes As an assistant, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach largely flew under the radar while Foles was becoming the highest-rated passer in the NFL. It sounds like folks…

  8. Eagles you told Philly.com you’d rather the team keep over DeSean Jackson

    Jan 13, 2014, 4:27 PM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason already a week old, various media outlets are running through the tried and true “Stay or Go” exercise. We did that for the club’s 11 impending free agents, but it seems a little silly to do for the entire roster and coaching staff since a large percentage are definitely returning.…

  9. $50,000 reward offered for information on DeSean Jackson home burglary

    Jan 13, 2014, 8:13 AM EDT

    wanted-poster

    The big Eagles news over the weekend involved DeSean Jackson and money again, only this time he lost some and is even offering it up rather than asking for more. Jackson’s Philadelphia residence was reportedly burglarized between January 6 and 10, and the star wide receiver is offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads…

  10. Story time: Wilt Chamberlain feared death by soda poisoning, a tape of the 100-point game exists, and one man did actually die in his seat at the Vet

    Jan 12, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    wilt-100ap

    A reel-to-reel tape of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game exists. But like so much else about Wilt’s career, no one’s sure where the damn thing is. You may not be familiar with him, but Josh Pastner is the head coach of the Memphis University basketball team. His No. 24 Tigers — who will be ranked higher…

  11. Why the Philadelphia Eagles don’t need Riley Cooper anymore

    Jan 9, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    cooper-bye

    Randy Moss. Terrell Owens. Chad Johnson. These are names of players who fans suggested play wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles after Jeremy Maclin suffered a torn ACL in training camp. In 2013! That’s how desperate folks were to keep Riley Cooper off the field before he used a racial slur. Fast forward six months,…

  12. Just so you know, DeSean Jackson is not demanding a new contract

    Jan 7, 2014, 1:13 PM EDT

    Lions Eagles Football

    You can put down your torches and pitchforks, folks. DeSean Jackson will not be holding the Philadelphia Eagles hostage this offseason. The polarizing wide receiver took to Instagram on Tuesday to explain his comments about his hope for a new contract this offseason. Jackson just completed year two of a five-year deal, but when pressed…

  13. Stay or Leave: Early look at Eagles’ 2014 free agents

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:45 PM EDT

    maclin-cooper

    While it came too early this year—as it does too often around these parts—the offseason is one of the best things about the NFL. Organizations construct their rosters through free agency and the draft, and we get to play along as fantasy general managers, dissecting each decision along the way. As always, we’ll be examining…

  14. DeSean Jackson would like a new contract but what he’s chasing can’t be bought

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:23 PM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    DeSean Jackson spoke to the media today down at the NovaCare Complex and said a lot of things. The crux of it is that the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver would like a new contract after the career year he put up with the help of Nick Foles and Chip Kelly this season. He thinks he…

  15. Was 2013 actually a missed opportunity for the Eagles?

    Jan 6, 2014, 10:13 AM EDT

    desean-saints

    No matter where you turn, the sentiments are largely the same. The future is bright for the Philadelphia Eagles. They were ahead of schedule this season. With a couple free-agent upgrades and another quality draft, the Birds are primed to be contender in the NFC for the next few years. The flip side of the…

  16. Nick Foles: ‘I’m hurting inside right now in my heart’

    Jan 5, 2014, 7:30 AM EDT

    Nick Foles

    Whether you want to admit it or not, I think all of us were quietly thinking, hoping the 2013 Philadelphia Eagles might be one of those special teams that does the unthinkable and wins a world a championship in a year when nobody was expecting it. That feeling exists largely due to Nick Foles. Statistically…

  17. Eagles vs. Saints: 4 stats that matter

    Jan 4, 2014, 1:06 PM EDT

    brees-eagles

    Drew Brees: home vs. away It’s been such an amazing year for quarterbacks in the NFL that Drew Brees is almost flying under the radar. 2013 was the fourth time the Super Bowl XLIV MVP threw for over 5,000 yards in a season, but the first it wasn’t good enough to lead the league. In…

  18. Yes, the Eagles have a Snapchat account

    In an overcrowded, constantly changing media landscape, Snapchat is here to stay.  Alright, I don’t really know that for sure.  But my friends and I like Snapchat.  So hopefully that counts for something. If you don’t know about Snapchat, here are the basics: You can send pictures or short videos, and friends can see them…

    In an effort to curb the violent incidents that keeping up at sporting events around the country, the Philadelphia police department has come up with a pretty decent idea for Saturday’s night Eagles-Saints playoff game at the Linc: @PhillyPolice will be wearing @Saints jerseys & hats, be careful who you pick on @LFFStadium during @Eagles…

    5. Playoffs! 2013 came and went, and not one of the big four managed to reach their respective sport’s postseason. In fact, we have to go all the way back to May of 2012 when the Flyers and 76ers both advanced to the quarterfinals. Philadelphia did have some postseason representation in 2013. La Salle’s men’s…

    Admit it. Some of you thought beating the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East championship was going to be easy. Without Tony Romo? With the worst defense in the NFL? In the month of December, that franchise’s Kryptonite the last bunch of years? The Philadelphia Eagles did eventually take care of business, but it was…

    You gotta hand it to the Philadelphia Eagles. Not only did they beat the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas to take the NFC East and earn a trip to the playoffs, but the organization has become extremely good at producing these hype videos. The latest in the series gets us prepared for the playoffs, which start…

    This is Rowdy. He’s the Cowboys’ mascot. This is Rowdy (courtesy USA Today Images) sitting on a chair, by himself, in AT&T Stadium following the Eagles’ 24-22, NFC East-clinching win over the Cowboys Sunday night.

    WORST-TO-FIRST

    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…

    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.…
