  1. VIDEO: Cary Williams Brawls With Riley Cooper at Practice

    Sep 5, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    9-5-13-cooper-williams

    We don’t know what this was about or why it happened — you will all undoubtedly guess. But your video of Riley Cooper and Cary Williams mixing it up is above. Williams was lined up on Cooper, Williams jumped over Cooper’s back in coverage, the two went to the ground, and then began fighting once…

  2. ESPN Writers Hate the Eagles, Love Andy Reid

    ESPN.com’s stable of NFL writers released their “expert” guesses predictions for the 2013 season ahead on Tuesday, and believe it or not, the Eagles didn’t receive a whole lot of love. Not a single one of them chose the Birds to come out on top in the NFC East this year, and by my count…

  3. Nate Allen to Start at Safety for Eagles, but Earl Wolff Will Play

    Sep 4, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    The Eagles have begun preparing in earnest for their Week 1 matchup with the Washington Redskins next week, but there was just one situation left to settle first. We had a fairly certain idea as to whom would be starting at 21 of the 22 spots on offense and defense, but who won the battle…

  4. ‘We Will Rise’: This Video Will Get You Pumped Up for the Eagles

    Sep 3, 2013, 3:19 PM EDT

    Football fans in the Delaware Valley and all over are starting to get excited. The NFL kicks off the regular season on Thursday, then after a full slate of action on Sunday the Eagles head to Washington for the first half of a Monday night double header. In preparation for the return of the Birds,…

  5. Is RG3 Ready for Week 1 Against the Eagles?

    Sep 3, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    griffin-eagles

    Two situations spring to mind when I think about Robert Griffin III under center for the Washington Redskins just eight months removed from a torn ACL, not to mention without attempting so much as a single pass in a preseason game this summer. First, I think of Donovan McNabb in 2007, less than one year…

  6. Danny Watkins Headlines Cuts as Eagles Get Down to 53 Players

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:05 PM EDT

    watkins

    Nothing cements a player’s bust status quite like the moment he’s released. The time came for Danny Watkins on Saturday as the Eagles trimmed their roster to 53 players in preparation for the regular season. We knew going in to training camp that Watkins had virtually no opportunity to start. Birds head coach Chip Kelly…

  7. Kurt Coleman Plays Cornerback, Actually Holds His Own, and Rex Ryan Approves

    Aug 30, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    coleman-rex

    The Eagles have seven cornerbacks on their roster (for now). Two of them – Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher – didn’t play at MetLife Stadium on Thursday because they’re starters. Two more – Brandon Hughes and Curtis Marsh – were unavailable due to injury. That left Brandon Boykin, Trevard Lindley, and Jordan Poyer to handle…

  8. Nick Foles and Some of the Eagles Wrap Up the Preseason Tonight

    Aug 29, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    foles-jets

    The best part about Week 4 of the preseason is it’s the end. All 32 teams are in action tonight, though we use the term “team” loosely because you won’t see m/any starters. The quality of these games is always poor, and by now I’m sure we’ve all had our fill of glorified scrimmages that…

  9. NFL Settles Concussion Lawsuit for $765 Million

    Aug 29, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    LeSean McCoy

    Is it me, or does this seem like a win for the National Football League? For the relatively low price of $765 million – just south of $24 million per owner, which works out to roughly 20% of this season’s salary cap – the NFL was able to settle their lawsuit with over 4,500 former…

  10. Jerry Jones Has ‘Brain of a 40-Year-Old,’ Cowboys Got the ‘Secret Sauce’

    Aug 29, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    jerry-jones

    Word to the elderly: this is not the way to convince people you are still as sharp as you used to be. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones desperately wants season-ticket holders and fans to believe he hasn’t been running the football operations into the ground for the better part of the last 15 years. You…

  11. The Over/Under on How Many Starts Vick Makes in 2013 Will Surprise You

    Aug 28, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    vick-hat

    Some people believe Michael Vick is a very good to great NFL quarterback, some think he’s an overrated, inconsistent, and flawed player. Wherever you happen to fall on that spectrum, there’s one aspect to Vick’s game almost everyone can agree on: he’s injury prone. Vick is the Eagles’ starting quarterback for now, but even if…

  12. DeSean Jackson Is Really Into Sparkly Things, Including Footwear

    Aug 27, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    DJacc.loubitin

    As a recovering sneakerhead, I can usually appreciate a good collection when I see one. No doubt there will be at least a few pairs of Jordans, some Air Force 1s, possibly a few rarities. Can’t say I’ve ever seen any Christian Louboutins before, but DeSean Jackson revealed that he is rocking quite a few…

  13. Kevin Kolb’s NFL Career Might Be Over

    Aug 26, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    kevin.kolb

    Poor Kevin Kolb. He arguably never got a fair shake in Philly, hustled in and out of the lineup for Wildcat packages in his first game as the starting quarterback until he was injured and ultimately replaced. Never had a chance in Arizona behind one of the most putrid offensive lines imaginable. Now he may…

  14. Mike Vick Wasn’t That Bad in Jacksonville, and Other Offensive Observations

    Aug 26, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Michael-Vick-throwaway

    On the surface, Michael Vick’s first game as the newly reinstated starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles seemed like a mess. He didn’t demonstrate flawless precision like the two games prior. He seemed to be holding on to the ball too long in general. He made some horrendous decisions with the football. Some of that…

  15. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly from the Eagles’ Third Preseason Game

    Aug 24, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, Chip Kelly

    Despite pulling out a 31-24 win in Jacksonville on Saturday night, there is no question this will go down as the most disappointing of the Eagles’ four preseason games. All you’re really looking for from these glorified scrimmages is execution, and it was lacking in bounds by Chip Kelly’s squad. The offense looked sloppy and…

  16. Eagles-Jaguars: Chip Kelly’s Dress Rehearsal Is Here, Battles on D

    Aug 24, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    vick-jags

    This has been the most exciting Eagles preseason in recent memory, probably since at least 2004, but it doesn’t take very long to grow weary of games that don’t count toward the standings. I think I speak for everybody – fans, players, even the coaching staff – when I say I’m ready to get to…

  17. Felix Jones, We Hardly Knew Ye: Traded for Former Temple LB

    Aug 23, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    felix

    When the Eagles brought Felix Jones into the mix at the end of May, it was with an understanding he was no lock to make the team. If he could demonstrate some of dazzling moves and explosion that led the Dallas Cowboys to draft him in the first round in 2008, there might be a…

  18. Coming to Terms with Vick as the Eagles’ Starting QB… Again

    Aug 21, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    vick-point

    There may not be a more outspoken critic of Michael Vick the football player than myself since his arrival in Philadelphia in 2009. It’s got nothing to do with past criminal behavior – he paid his debt to society. In fact, I kind of like the reformed Mike. He strikes me as a thoughtful and…

  19. What They’re Saying: Players and Coaches React to Vick Being Named Eagles’ QB

    Aug 20, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    Chip Kelly dropped some big news today, naming Mike Vick the Eagles’ starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Washington Redskins and the foreseeable future. He probably could have waited another week to make an announcement, but Vick was clearly ahead of Nick Foles after the last preseason game and that was unlikely to change,…

  20. No, the Eagles Should Not Trade Nick Foles Now

    Aug 20, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    foles-franchise

    You may have heard the chatter on talk radio or in some shallow corner of the internet. Rich Hoffman wrote what I’m sure is a thoughtful piece (behind a subscriber wall) on the topic today for the Daily News. Since Nick Foles failed to overtake Michael Vick in the Eagles’ quarterback competition, the team should…

  21. Vick Has 13th-Best Odds to Win NFL MVP This Season

    Aug 20, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    mike.vick

    From wide-open quarterback competition to most valuable player in the NFL? You can bet on it. Literally, you can. Maybe it’s only coincidence (probably not), but not long after Chip Kelly named Michael Vick the Eagles’ starting quarterback, his odds on winning some serious hardware improved rather suddenly. In fact, only 12 players are getting…

  22. Have We Seen Enough of the Eagles’ QB Competition? And More Observations

    Aug 19, 2013, 6:30 AM EDT

    Patriots Eagles Football

    At this point you probably should be resigned to the inevitable. Barring injury or a dramatic reversal of fortune, Michael Vick will be named the Eagles’ starting quarterback sometime between now and September 9. It’s not that Nick Foles has been bad by any means. The 24 year old moved the offense quite capably. It’s…

  23. Eagles Preseason Evaluations: What Is This Defense’s Strength?

    Aug 18, 2013, 7:30 AM EDT

    Fletcher Cox, Cam Newton

    As the old saying goes, it all starts up front in the game of football, and that certainly rang true for the Eagles’ defense against Carolina this past Thursday. Coming off of what one might go so far as to describe as a humiliating effort versus New England a week earlier, defensive coordinator Billy Davis’…

    Part 1 of our English Premier League Preview got a lot of great feedback on Thursday. Even the anti-soccer trolls left their dark basements to enjoy the sunshine, because they were nowhere to be found. Yesterday, we went through the 10 teams likely to finish in the bottom half of the 20-team league. Today we…

  25. Trending Up? Eagles Move Ball at Will, Allow Zero TDs Against Panthers

    Aug 15, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    mccoy-panthers

    It’s only preseason, and believe me, the Eagles still have plenty of kinks to work out. A pair of turnovers cost the offense an opportunity to jump all over the opponent early, an opponent that may have left the defense off the hook a few times due to their own inefficiency. When the gun sounded…
