  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. Stay or Leave: Early look at Eagles’ 2014 free agents

    While it came too early this year—as it does too often around these parts—the offseason is one of the best things about the NFL. Organizations construct their rosters through free agency and the draft, and we get to play along as fantasy general managers, dissecting each decision along the way. As always, we’ll be examining…

  3. 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…

  4. 2013 Philadelphia Eagles: Predictions for All 16 Games

    Week 1 at Washington – Win, 37-27 Chip Kelly shocks the world with his offense – by coming out and running the triple option out of the Flexbone on Monday Night Football. Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, and Bryce Brown combine to rush for over 300 yards against the Redskins, who are caught completely off-guard by…

  5. 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…

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

    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…

  7. 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…

    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. [ Five Tough Questions for Eagles Training Camp: Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | Offensive Line Defensive…

  9. Handicapping the Eagles’ Safety Competition

    May 22, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT

    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…
