  1. If nothing else, Eagles are safe at safety again

    When was the last time the Philadelphia Eagles had two reliable (let alone competent) safeties in their defensive backfield? We have to go back to 2008, when future Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins and uber-solid Quintin Mikell were patrolling the secondary. With the re-signing of Nate Allen to a one-year contract on Monday, it appears…

  2. Counting Down the Eagles’ Needs: No. 1, Safety

    Free agency is here, and the draft is right around the corner. 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 previous installments on the linebackers, cornerbacks, defensive line, specialists, wide receivers, offensive line, quarterbacks, tight ends and …

  3. Gameday: Eagles without three starters on defense versus Washington

    Big game for the Birds today. Huge game in fact. A win would give Philadelphia a half-game lead over idle Dallas in the NFC East standings. A loss will drop the Eagles to 5-6—2-3 in the division—muddying their path to the playoffs. If the Eagles are going to extend their winning streak to three games,…

  4. Key matchups to watch in Eagles-Broncos tilt

    DeSean Jackson vs. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie John Gonzalez had a nice story some days back about these two flashy stars renewing their rivalry. Not only were they going at each other in practice every day over the previous two seasons, they actually have some history on the field. DeSean Jackson and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie crossed paths twice…

  5. The Eagles Need Safety at Help: Wait… No, That Sounds About Right

    It’s been so long since Philadelphians have experienced good safety play, they might not recognize it if they saw it. On the other hand, we’ve become connoisseurs of sorts when it comes to bad safety play, and Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field was something of a tasting festival. I’m not going to add too much…

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

    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…

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

    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…

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

    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…

  9. Earl Wolff Runs with First-Team Defense, Clay Harbor Trying Out Wide Receiver

    The other shoe finally dropped after Nate Allen’s rough outing in the preseason opener. According to reports out of the NovaCare Complex, the fourth-year safety was replaced in the defense’s top pairing at practice on Monday by rookie Earl Wolff. Wolff being elevated to the first string at this stage in camp is big news,…

  10. Five Tough Questions for Eagles Training Camp: Safety

    We pick up our training camp preview at safety, where it appears the Eagles have an even more wide-open competition than at quarterback. It’s anybody’s guess who will be starting come Week 1.

  11. Handicapping the Eagles’ Safety Competition

    Much of the media focus during spring OTAs has been geared toward trying to pick out which passer has the advantage in Chip Kelly’s quarterback derby, although if Monday’s practice was any indication it’s really a two-horse race. With the anticipated battle between Michael Vick and Nick Foles taking shape, perhaps no competition at the…

  12. Watch Eagles Draft Pick Earl Wolff Jump onto a 5-foot-8 Shelf

    This is not not impressive. The Eagles selected safety Earl Wolf out of N.C. State in fifth round at 136th overall. Wolf’s mother was actually raised in North Philly, prompting him to say: “So, basically, I’m coming back home.” Wolff stands 6-foot tall. That’s 72 inches. This shelf he’s about to jump onto is allegedly…
