Patrick Chung

  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. Patrick Chung’s reign of terror in Philly is over

    Celebrate good times, c’mon! No, the Philadelphia Eagles haven’t completed any big free-agent signings just yet (outside of re-upping punter Donnie Jones for three years—more to come). However, they did manage to do one better. The team announced the release of safety-in-name-only Patrick Chung on Tuesday, marking the end of his one-year reign of terror…

  3. 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 …

  4. Meltdown in Minneapolis: Eagles streak snapped in 48-30 loss to Vikings

    This had “trap game” written all over it. Shades of Joe Webb some fans even lamented in the lead-up to Sunday. Whether this loss will be remembered similarly in Philadelphia Eagles lore probably depends on how they finish the season, but today, it feels devastating. After holding nine straight opponents to 21 points or fewer,…

  5. Photo Essay: Patrick Chung wreaking havoc on defense… his own defense

    Rookie safety Earl Wolff has been ruled out for the Philadelphia Eagles for the third consecutive week, which means Patrick Chung is in line for another start. Chung hates the Eagles. At least it seems like Chung—or Captain Friendly Fire—hates the Eagles. He’s certainly inflicted more punishment on his own teammates in the last two…

  6. 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,…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

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

    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’…

  10. 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,…

    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.

  12. 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…
