  1. Shawn Andrews accuses Donovan McNabb of mistreatment, says he requested a trade

    Nov 8, 2013, 5:42 PM EDT

    Left: Shawn Andrews. Right: Donovan McNabb hugging Shawn's brother Stacy.

    Fresh off the heels of the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin situation, former Eagles offensive lineman Shawn Andrews is accusing his ex-teammates of mistreating him during his time in Philadelphia. Of all people, Andrews had plenty to say about Donovan McNabb — albeit without ever saying much of anything. Andrews went on 97.5 The Fanatic Friday afternoon…

  2. The Evster reviews NFL Network’s ‘The Football Life: Randall Cunningham’

    Nov 8, 2013, 7:30 AM EDT

    RC JC

    Growing up, no one, and I mean NO ONE, made me lose my shit more than Randall Cunningham. Not Shawn Kemp. Not Frank Drebin. Not even the lovely ladies of Hustler magazine and their knee-high tube socks. Randall Cunningham was The Ultimate Weapon Bonkers Machine. So when I heard that the NFL Network was going to…

  3. Can the Packers beat the Eagles without Aaron Rodgers?

    Nov 7, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    Aaron Rodgers

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist Bob McGinn was in the news this week for his unfortunately-timed article “Packers could win without Aaron Rodgers,” a story that ran two days before the All-Pro quarterback suffered a broken collarbone. Oops. McGinn tempted fate, writing “Fools will cry that I’m jinxing Rodgers and the Packers” before inadvertently forecasting with…

  4. PSA: Randall Cunningham featured on NFL Network’s A Football Life tonight

    RANDALL CUNNINGHAM CUNNINGHAM

    The Flyers are in Raleigh to take on the Carolina Hurricanes, a meeting of four-win hockey clubs wallowing in the bottom half of a weak Metro Division. Not exactly appointment viewing for all but the most Flyered up among us. The local sports calendar is not bereft of quality sports television programming however. The NFL…

  5. Miguel Cabrera visiting all the wrong Philly sports franchises

    What do you do if you’re a big-league ball player with time to kill in a cool city? Apparently, you go on a tour of the local professional sports’ franchises. Over the weekend, Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera made a pit stop inside the Flyers dressing room at the Wells Fargo Center where he…

  6. Eagles Extras: Rodgers injured, Nnamdi cut, Foles to the Hall of Fame

    Nov 5, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    foles jersey

    Nick Foles is Canton-bound! Well, his jersey is anyway. The Pro Football Hall of Fame requested some game-used gear from Foles’ historic seven-touchdown performance in Oakland, and what better than his white no. 9 to display in the museum of football? A few reporters were able to snap a quick photo of the jersey as…

  7. What’s next for Nick Foles?

    Nov 4, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    foles9

    Like everybody else, I’m having a little trouble wrapping my head around what Nick Foles accomplished in an Eagles uniform on Sunday. On one hand, I don’t care who you are or what the situation is, seven touchdowns in one game is damn impressive. There’s a reason only six other players in the 94-year history…

  8. Nick Foles ties NFL record with seven touchdown passes

    Nov 3, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    nick.foles.cooper

    Even those folks who have been clamoring for Nick Foles to be the Eagles’ starting quarterback for the remainder of the season couldn’t have seen this coming. Foles threw more touchdown passes than incompletions in the Birds’ 49-20 victory over the Raiders on Sunday, tying the NFL single-game record with seven scores. Foles’ line: 22-of-28…

  9. Eagles-Raiders: Will Nick Foles rebound? Can Birds score a touchdown?

    Nov 3, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    It’s been three weeks—21 full days—since Nick Foles placed a 36-yard rainbow between three defenders and into DeSean Jackson’s waiting arms in Tampa Bay. That was the last time the Eagles’ offense reached the end zone. Over the past two games we’ve seen Foles regress to Bobby Hoying levels of ineptitude, watched as Michael Vick…

  10. Catching up on some big Eagles storylines heading into Week 9: Foles starting, Sopoaga traded and winning the division

    Oct 31, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    eagles-logo

    The Eagles are coming off of back-to-back losses to division rivals at the Linc by a combined score of 32-10. Chip Kelly’s offense has not produced a touchdown since October 13 against the winless Tampa Bay Bucs. We’re at the midway point in the season, and the buzz around Philadelphia has clearly shifted as many…

  11. Peter King: Eagles ‘the disappointment of the season’

    Oct 28, 2013, 4:13 PM EDT

    Chip Kelly

    Expectations were low for the Eagles heading into the season, although I’m not sure anybody thought a Chip Kelly offense would go one game without scoring a touchdown, let alone two in a row. Still, Philadelphia wasn’t exactly thinking Super Bowl this year, and most didn’t have them this team in the playoffs, so a…

  12. Reminder for Chip Kelly: the Broncos won games with Tim Tebow at QB

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    barkley

    Practically every Eagles fan understands this team in all likelihood does not have its franchise quarterback. For all the words that were spent on Michael Vick, Nick Foles, Matt Barkley and which one should or should not start, there are legitimate doubts that any one of them could ever be the man in Philadelphia. Chip…

  13. Inexplicably, Chip Kelly opts for almost unprecedented onside kick with 4:11 left in Eagles’ loss to Giants

    Oct 27, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    chip-kelly-hat

    For reasons unbeknownst to most all, Giants punter Steve Weatherford double-clutched kicking a high snap out of his own end zone and taking the safety, instead gift-wrapping a two-yard touchdown for Eagles special teamer Najee Goode. Crazier: With 4:11 to go, the score 15-7, and with the Eagle defense having to that point allowed 12 yards…

  14. Offensive: Eagles offense held without a touchdown for second straight week

    Oct 27, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    vick-herremans

    As bad as things got in Andy Reid’s final season in Philadelphia, never did the Eagles go two full games without scoring a touchdown on offense. Even without 80 percent of the starters along the offensive line, even with LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson missing in the end, whether it was Michael Vick or Nick…

  15. Phil Simms names Eagles offense one of NFL’s five worst units

    Oct 25, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Phil Simms

    In terms of quality, there isn’t much separation between the offenses for the Eagles and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger—that’s the NFL according to Phil Simms. The former New York Giants quarterback and CBS analyst was listing the top and bottom five units in the league on Showtime’s Inside the NFL this…

  16. Will Michael Vick be effective if he can’t run?

    Oct 24, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    vick-run-gmen

    The good news for the Eagles is Michael Vick is expected to play on Sunday—at least that’s the consensus among reporters. Chip Kelly sounds far less convinced, although who knows how much of that is gamesmanship on the head coach’s part. The bad news is Vick’s hamstring still may not be 100 percent by Sunday…

  17. Injuries muddy Eagles quarterback situation for Week 8

    Oct 21, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Vick and Foles

    Philadelphia’s quarterback controversy may have been laid to rest, but as of Monday it still isn’t clear who will start against the Giants in Week 8. If healthy, it will be Michael Vick—but that’s a big if. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly refused to name a starter during his day-after press conference on the grounds…

  18. Per Freddie Mitchell, Eagles lost Super Bowl thanks to Harrison’s HGH use, McNabb’s ‘s***ty a**’ arm

    A not-so-great former athlete with an outlandish sense of self who can’t seem to stay out of trouble, on social media and otherwise. Where have I heard this before? Like, really recently? Freddie Mitchell — best known for his great hands, but most recently known for a tax fraud scheme and having seven pounds of…

  19. Busted: Nick Foles plays worst game as a pro on big stage versus Dallas

    Oct 20, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    foles-dallas

    Chip Kelly’s analysis of Nick Foles’ performance in a 17-3 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys: “He was off.” You can say that again. And again. And again. Amid calls from fans and writers (such as myself) for Foles to take over the reins as the Eagles’ starting quarterback from Michael Vick, the second-year quarterback…

  20. Video: Vick and Foles deliver joint press conference, won’t let job ruin the friendship

    Oct 17, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    foles-vick-presser

    The big news to come out of Michael Vick and Nick Foles’ historic joint press conference on Thursday was… wait—historic joint press conference? Yes, love was in the air as the two quarterbacks took the stage together to speak to the press—an NFL first according to Vick—and I’m sure there wasn’t a dry eye in…

  21. When’s the last time the home team won a football game at Lincoln Financial Field?

    Oct 16, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    USATSI_6584426_138566172_lowres

    Over the last two seasons, there hasn’t been a whole lot of winning football in this city. Dating back to the start of last year, the two teams that call the Linc home — the Philadelphia Eagles and the Temple Owls — are a combined 11-25. “I don’t know if Lincoln Financial Field is cursed,…

  22. You’ve got to start the reigning NFC offensive player of the week, right?

    Oct 16, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    nick.foles

    Nick Foles was named the NFC offensive player of the week this morning after his impressive performance leading the Philadelphia Eagles to victory down in Tampa over the weekend. Also impressive is the rate at which Foles has been throwing interceptions. Which is to say not very frequently. knockonwood CSN’s Reuben Frank takes a look…

  23. DeMarcus Ware, DeMarco Murray likely out for Dallas vs. Eagles

    Oct 14, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    d-ware

    The Eagles are riding a wave of momentum into their battle for NFC East supremacy against Dallas in Week 7. Now they might be catching a couple of breaks, too. The Cowboys did not escape their 31-16 win over Washington on Sunday night unscathed. Injuries reared their ugly head for a pair of key starters…

  24. 5 statistics that should (but won’t) end Eagles quarterback debate

    Oct 14, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    vick-foles

    The trendy stat of the day for Michael Vick supporters, Nick Foles detractors, and fence-sitters everywhere: opponents’ record. The opponents in games Vick has started and “finished” (technically he was pulled from the Denver game, but the result was not in question) are 15-7. The record of the two teams Foles has beaten is 0-11.…

  25. Foles should be the starter: second-year QB masterful in Eagles 31-20 win at Tampa

    Oct 13, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    foles-spike

    If I’m Chip Kelly, I’ve seen all I needed to from Nick Foles. Simply put, the kid is playing a better quarterback than Michael Vick right now. The second-year field general picked up right where he left off last week in the Eagles’ 31-20 win over Tampa Bay. Foles completed 22 of 31 attempts for…
