Eagles

  1. Eagles Pro Bowl snubs, ranked

    Dec 28, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT

    foles-desean

    With a 9-6 record, the second-ranked offense in the NFL, and a defense that’s held 10 of its last 11 opponents to 21 points or less, the Philadelphia Eagles managed to send just two players to the 2014 Pro Bowl. Running back LeSean McCoy and left tackle Jason Peters were beyond worthy candidates, but where’s…

  2. Nnamdi Asomugha to retire from football—we get Nnamdi’d one last time

    Dec 26, 2013, 11:30 PM EDT

    nnamdi-d8

    Wide receivers around the NFL shed some tears on Thursday evening upon hearing the news that four-time All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is retiring from pro football. Multiple outlets are reporting Asomugha will sign a one-day contract with the Oakland Raiders on Friday then ride off into the sunset. He last played for the San Francisco…

  3. Tony Romo won’t Romo division away because he’s out for the season

    Dec 23, 2013, 4:44 PM EDT

    Tony Romo

    Didn’t see this one coming. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a back injury, which means the Philadelphia Eagles will be facing Kyle Orton in Week 17 for the NFC East title. Honestly, it’s a shame. While it gives the…

  4. Video: ‘Santa’ interrupts Chip Kelly’s news conference

    Dec 23, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    santa-chip

    It’s not often Santa comes off looking like a dope. “Santa Claus” decided to drop in on Chip Kelly’s day-after press conference on Monday to give the Philadelphia Eagles an early present, tell a corny joke or two and let everybody know that Nick Foles is his quarterback for the next 1,000 years, too. In…

  5. ‘We want Dallas! We want Dallas!’

    Dec 23, 2013, 12:08 AM EDT

    mccoy-fans

    The Chicago Bears had everything to play for with a division title on the line. The Philadelphia Eagles had the bare minimum to gain—improved seeding in the playoffs, if they get in. Guess which team showed up? The Eagles blew the doors off the visiting Bears 54-11 at Lincoln Financial Field in front of a…

  6. Report: Michael Vick ‘open’ to returning to Eagles in 2014

    Dec 22, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    mike.vick

    Michael Vick will be a free agent at season’s end, and there’s little doubt he would like to start in the NFL—he’s said as much. But suppose there isn’t much interest in a 34-year-old quarterback with two career playoff wins. What will Vick do then? Perhaps the four-time Pro Bowler will return to the Philadelphia…

  7. Eagles won’t rest their starters this week… but the Bears might

    Dec 20, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    bears-trestman

    Chip Kelly was adamant that the Philadelphia Eagles would play their starters this Sunday night against the Chicago Bears, regardless of the game’s influence in the standings. His opponent, on the other hand, is not so sure. Turns out the Birds aren’t the only team that might not have that much to play for this…

  8. The Evster’s Guide to Hating the Bears

    Dec 20, 2013, 8:02 AM EDT

    Bill Murray

    When I say, “KILL!” you say, “BEARS!” KILL! BEARS! KILL! Welllllllllllll, I sort of really like bears. Both the animal and the football team. They’re so furry and cuddly, and have never changed their helmets, and even though Philly fans are supposed to be the ANGRIEST fans around, it’s kinda hard to hate a city…

  9. Eagles playoff scenarios: Philly can clinch versus Chicago on Sunday

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:57 PM EDT

    eagles-logo

    We’ve been fielding quite a few questions over the past 24 hours or so about the remaining playoff scenarios for the Philadelphia Eagles over the final two weeks of the season. So as a public service, here’s a quick, handy guide for the remaining possibilities, as there are only a few. First and foremost, the…

  10. Jerry Jones doesn’t hire a GM because he’ll just ruin the Cowboys anyway

    Dec 17, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    jerry-jones

    The Philadelphia Eagles got knocked down a peg on Sunday, but that’s okay, because the Dallas Cowboys in December. Tony Romo shoulders a lot of the blame for their historic collapse—as well he should—but let’s not forget their porous defense, clueless coaching staff, and most of all, the man behind the curtain. It’s a Dallas…

  11. The Eagles, Matt Cassel and the unpredictability of the NFL

    Dec 16, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

    cassel-phi

    Over the course of a season, there are always going to be weeks that remind us we can never be too sure about anything in the NFL. A club that’s won five straight loses to an inferior opponent missing its best player. A defense that’s held nine consecutive teams to 21 points or less gets…

  12. 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,…

  13. 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…

  14. 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,…

  15. 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)…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

    Lions Eagles Football

    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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

    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.
