  1. Staph infection outbreak could force NFL to move Eagles-Bucs game

    Oct 11, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    rjs

    Crazy news coming out of Tampa Bay on Friday. Three players on the Buccaneers roster have contracted MRSA—a strain of staph infection that’s resistant to some antibiotics—including two new cases just this week. How serious is the outbreak? The NFL may have to move Sunday’s Bucs-Eagles tilt. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Players Association…

  2. Caution: 5 reasons the Tampa Bay Bucs could upset the Eagles

    It sure seemed like the Eagles were catching a break when I first saw Tampa Bay on the schedule. The Buccaneers will be searching for their first win of the season on Sunday. They’re mostly in the news these days because of a messy divorce with their former franchise quarterback. From an outsider’s perspective, they…

  3. DeSean Jackson: ‘I don’t think [Darrelle Revis] can run with me’ [UPDATED w/ video]

    If Darrelle Revis is experiencing any ill effects from his ACL tear from last September, he hasn’t allowed it to slow him down on the football field this season. Revis Island may have moved in the offseason, but just like that place from the TV show Lost, it’s still somewhere wide receivers can disappear for…

  4. Eagles defense deserves credit for taking advantage of limited offenses

    Oct 8, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    eagles-d-gang-tackle-giants

    You wouldn’t think it just to look at the group on paper, but the Eagles’ defense has played well more often than it has not this season. To reiterate, they’ve had more good games so far than bad. Yes, I’m aware Philadelphia is ranked 31st overall in total defense and 30th in points allowed. Yes,…

  5. Chip Shots: If Foles throws 27 TDs in Tampa Bay, he can win job

    Oct 7, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    foles-bucs

    Nick Foles may get the start in Tampa Bay, but Michael Vick is still the Birds’ quarterback. At least that’s the way Eagles head coach Chip Kelly is looking at the situation the day after Foles replaced an injured Vick and led Philadelphia to a 36-21 win over the New York Giants on Sunday. Actually,…

  6. LeSean McCoy tweets: Knowshon Moreno sucks

    Looks like he's yawning.

But Knowshon is KILLING the Cowboys. — Lesean McCoy (@CutonDime25) October 6, 2013 Losing 52-20 to the Broncos will make you that blunt. So will trolling Skip Bayless. One way or the…

  7. Quarterback controversy? Nick Foles leads Eagles to victory in New York

    Oct 6, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    foles-desean

    When Michael Vick left the game with a hamstring injury and less than two minutes remaining in the first half, the Eagles were ahead 16-7, and Nick Foles quickly led the offense on a scoring drive to tack on three. But midway through the third quarter, the New York Giants had retaken the lead, and…

  8. Eagles look to get back on track versus woeful Giants

    Oct 6, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    shady-giants

    Philadelphia is 1-3, coming off the heels of a 52-20 loss in Denver. New York is still winless and has been outscored 69-7 in their last two games. Your classic battle for NFC East supremacy, this is not. Although for what it’s worth—nothing if you ask Chip Kelly—the Eagles have a good chance to move…

  9. Chip Shots: Kelly chastises McCoy for interruption, asks NFL for trophy

    Oct 3, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    chip-wave

    The Eagles may be off to a 1-3 start under Chip Kelly, but if the pressure of the NFL is starting to get to the head coach, you wouldn’t know it from watching him. Chip was his typical snarky self at Thursday’s press conference. When somebody mentioned Philadelphia could move into first place in the…

  10. Chip Kelly: Harold Carmichael’s 1984 retirement is killing the 2013 Eagles

    In 14 NFL seasons, 13 of which he spent with the Philadelphia Eagles, Harold Carmichael caught 590 passes for 8,985 yards and 79 touchdowns. After spending the final year of his career with Dallas in 1984, Carmichael retired from the game. And that decision is just killing the Eagles’ offense right now. Geoff Mosher has a…

    One of the true destination jobs in all of college football opened up over the weekend when the University of Southern California fired head coach Lane Kiffin. It’s easy to land top recruits, you’re living on the beach—where do I send a resume? At least one analyst believes Chip Kelly might be asking the same…

  13. Better ingredients. Better pizza. Better quarterbacks. Papa John’s.

    Sep 30, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    Apparently some players on the Philadelphia Eagles may have been yelling “Papa John’s!” at the line of scrimmage when Peyton Manning went into his “Omaha! Omaha!” audible calls / mock-pointing-out-defensive-short-comings during yesterday’s game. I didn’t hear it, but plenty of people did apparently. One blog post even went so far as to title itself: NFL…

  14. ANNIHILATED: Broncos humiliate Eagles 52-20 in Denver

    Sep 29, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    broncos-humiliate-eagles

    Well, we told you there was a chance to win. Actually, I said it, and I stand by it. I also said what actually wound up happening—an embarrassing 52-20 loss—would not surprise anyone either. The Denver Broncos are an amazing football team, which should be fairly obvious to everybody by now. The next defense that…

    DeSean Jackson vs. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie John Gonzalez had a nice story some days back about these two flashy stars renewing their rivalry.

  16. 3 reasons the Eagles could upset the Denver Broncos on Sunday

    Sep 27, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    shady-29

    Somewhat lost amid all of the hoopla over the buzzsaw known as Peyton Manning is the fact that the Eagles are an NFL team with a chance to win a football game this Sunday. Sure, you hear a few people touting this idea, but it sure seems like most are chalking this up as a…

    Chip Kelly and Bill Belichick

    (What, you don’t have a Rolex? That’s weird. Bloggers always own a Rolex or two…) Chip Kelly has no shortage of unique methods, from music at practice and personalized smoothies to his entire approach to offense. He even has a way of acclimating his players to the time difference on a west-coast trip, like the…

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

    Sep 26, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    vick-mccoy

    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…

    It’s a tradition that’s been passed down from Philadelphia fathers to sons for decades. There’s nothing quite like sitting down on the sofa for Eagles gameday on Sundays with a nice cooler full of cabernet sauvignon. For years, South Philly natives have used delicious red vino to drown the sorrows of NFC Championship games lost.…

    We wrote about Brent Celek’s mustache-themed eatery called Prime Stache back when it first opened up. He’s now expanded from just his location in Old City to a ‘stache on wheels. The Prime Stache lunch truck was down at the NovaCare Complex this afternoon providing the hungry and animalistic media with free lunch. Clearly Celek…

    Two-time All-Pro safety Jairus Byrd is stuck in Buffalo playing on a one-year deal thanks to the franchise tag, and he seemingly wants out. The Eagles are desperate for so much as a capable safety, so why doesn’t general manager Howie Roseman pick up the phone and make that call? The Cleveland Browns just shipped…

  22. The time Michael Vick outdueled Peyton Manning

    Sep 24, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    Michael Vick

    A lot of us—myself included—are just about ready to chalk up the Eagles’ trip to Denver this Sunday as another loss. The Birds have their share of flaws, but Peyton Manning has been simply masterful so far this season. You could argue he’s never been surrounded by so much talent before in his 16-year career,…

    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…

    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…

  25. That Time the Ref Called the Entire Eagles Offense Except for Jason Kelce Offsides

    Offsides

    The Eagles most certainly didn’t do all they could to win last night’s game against Andy Reid and the Chiefs. It’s easy to point to the awful turnovers by Damaris Johnson and Jason Kelce as the most egregious of errors from the Philadelphia side. The most humorous of errors though? Clearly when the ref called…
