  1. Counting Down the Eagles’ Offseason Needs: No. 10, Running Back

    Jan 15, 2014, 5:10 PM EDT

    shady-smoke

    Free agency is right around the corner, and the draft will be here before you know it. With the Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason in full swing, we’re examining where the roster stands at each position, counting down based on team need. Up first: running back.   How does it feel, Eagles fans? How does it feel…

  2. Quotable: Lesean McCoy thinks Eagles have enough talent to win ‘a couple’ Super Bowls

    Jan 15, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT

    lesean-mccoy-belt-slide

    At first glance, I was going to suggest adding this into the “Dream Team” and “Dynasty” list of the stupid crap Eagles have said about their Super Bowl chances in the recent years. But at second glance, it only sort of fits there. Otherwise, it’s what you’d expect any athlete to say — they think…

  3. Eagles vs. Saints: 4 stats that matter

    Jan 4, 2014, 1:06 PM EDT

    brees-eagles

    Drew Brees: home vs. away It’s been such an amazing year for quarterbacks in the NFL that Drew Brees is almost flying under the radar. 2013 was the fourth time the Super Bowl XLIV MVP threw for over 5,000 yards in a season, but the first it wasn’t good enough to lead the league. In…

  4. The Eagles know they’re hot right now

    Jan 1, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    mccoy-fans

    It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. Get hot at the end of the season, squeak into the playoffs, and anything can happen. The Philadelphia Eagles know this as demonstrated by a pretty confident Shady McCoy who spoke with the media on New Year’s Day. From Eagles 24/7 beat writer Sheil Kapadia: LeSean…

  5. LeSean McCoy, the best Eagles running back you’ve ever seen

    Dec 29, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy

    Remember when everyone assumed Chip Kelly was going to come in and throw the ball all over the field? People who never watched college football assumed that because his Oregon teams scored 724 points per game, they never ran the ball. Well, LeSean McCoy never got that memo. With a second-quarter run Sunday night, McCoy…

  6. ‘We want Dallas! We want Dallas!’

    Dec 23, 2013, 12:08 AM EDT

    mccoy-fans

    The Chicago Bears had everything to play for with a division title on the line. The Philadelphia Eagles had the bare minimum to gain—improved seeding in the playoffs, if they get in. Guess which team showed up? The Eagles blew the doors off the visiting Bears 54-11 at Lincoln Financial Field in front of a…

  7. Shady McCoy’s Madden-like spin move

    Dec 22, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT

    spinmove1

    The Philadelphia Eagles are cruising past the Chicago Bears tonight en route to an NFC East showdown with the Cowboys next Sunday evening. But before we focus on the serious task at hand in Dallas, it’s worth savoring this one. Nobody makes you appreciate the beauty of football more than Shad McCoy. He’s padded his…

  8. Biggest takeaway from Eagles Sunday: LeSean McCoy calls Nick Foles “Folesy”

    Dec 9, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

    AP-foles-mccoy

    You can debate whether or not Nick Foles has the makings of a true NFL quarterback–well, maybe you could a couple weeks ago, now the debate’s getting kinda one-sided–but he’s definitely lacking in at least one intangible category: His name kinda stinks. Peyton Manning, that’s a quarterback name. Tom Brady. Cam Newton. Andrew Luck. Michael…

  9. LeSean McCoy pulls Eagles sleigh to incredible win over Lions

    Dec 8, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    LeSean McCoy

    Go ahead, walk outside in the snow right now. Try not to fall. Now, get up. Dust off the snow. And try to cut, juke, and make 300-pound tacklers miss you. LeSean McCoy can. McCoy ran for a team record 217 yards as the Eagles came back from an early hole to beat the Detroit…

  10. Which Eagles belong in the Pro Bowl?

    Nov 19, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    lesean-desean

    Upon finishing up practice on Tuesday, the Eagles were officially on vacation until next week. That means come Sunday you’ll finally have time to rake the leaves, have dinner with your in-laws, or worse, fill out Pro Bowl ballots at NFL.com. The Pro Bowl has long been a punch line in NFL circles. Playing at…

  11. Breaking down the Eagles’ dominant finish in Green Bay

    Nov 11, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    mccoy-oline

    When was the last time we saw the Eagles simply overpower an opponent the way they did the Packers in the fourth quarter on Sunday? There are a ton of things to like about the Birds right now. Nick Foles can’t seem to make a mistake. LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson are about to reach…

  12. Eagles surpass last season’s win total 10 games into 2013

    Nov 10, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    eagles-d

    The Eagles might be a year or two away from contending for a championship—they don’t even know who their franchise quarterback is (or do they?)—but at least one thing is now certain. This year’s team is officially better than the 2012 iteration. After finishing 4-12 in Andy Reid’s final season as head coach, Philadelphia has…

  13. 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…

  14. GIF: Shady McCoy gets rocked, flipped in midair, fumbles

    Oct 13, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    LeSean McCoy rocked in Tampa

    After the Eagles drove right down the field with ease on their first drive of the day in Tampa, their second possession looked off to a promising start with Shady McCoy finding some open space up the right side before he got absolutely leveled by a pair of Bucs defenders. LeSean was lifted into the…

  15. Video: Shady McCoy stands by his negative Knowshon Moreno tweet

    Oct 9, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Looks like he's yawning.

    Sadly, this video does not feature the very beginning of LeSean McCoy’s chat with the media today in which he somewhat humorously started things off by saying he believes Tampa Bay Bucs RB Doug Martin is in fact a “heck of a running back.” Alas, we’re left with McCoy standing by the negative tweet about…

  16. LeSean McCoy tweets: Knowshon Moreno sucks

    Oct 6, 2013, 10:06 PM EDT

    Looks like he's yawning.

    Skip Bayless, Knowshon Moreno and LeSean McCoy walk into a bar … Knowshon sucks RT @RealSkipBayless: Peyton is doing what Peyton always does. 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…

  17. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. Vick: ‘I take sole responsibility’ for loss to Chiefs

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:00 AM EDT

    vick-sole

    Vick: “I take sole responsibility for what happened tonight. I didn’t execute.” — Reuben Frank (@RoobCSN) September 20, 2013 That’s awfully noble of you, Mike. Don’t get me wrong, you deserve some of the blame, but there is plenty of it to go around the Eagles’ locker room after their 26-16 loss to the Kansas…

  21. Vick and McCoy’s Usage Should be Monitored During Early Portion of Schedule

    Sep 11, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    lesean.mccoy

    The Washington Redskins defense weren’t the only ones who looked completely exhausted by the end of the Eagles’ 33-27 win on Monday night. Michael Vick was hit seven times on dropbacks and ran nine times with the football, and was noticeably hobbled in the final minutes. By his career-high 31st carry, LeSean McCoy practically needed…

  22. Hold Your Horses: Chip Kelly’s Debut Exaggerated by Floundering Redskins

    Sep 10, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    chip-vick

    One of the pressing questions for the Eagles heading into this season was what if Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense goes three and out, and their defense had to go back right on the field after they just came off? New question: what if the Birds’ opponent goes three and out on offense? The answer is…

  23. GIFs: Shady McCoy is Filthy against Redskins

    Sep 9, 2013, 10:37 PM EDT

    LeSean McCoy

    Chip Kelly’s highly touted fast-paced offense was fun to watch on Monday night in Washington — at least for the first three quarters or so. There were plenty of no huddles, intricate reads, goofy colored sideline signs, bells, whistles, all that. It was so fast! But the most exciting play in Chipper’s playbook may be…

    mccoy-skins

    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…

  25. 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,…
