2013 NFL Draft Recap: The Philadelphia Eagles

Matt Barkley's Twitter picture after he was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 4th Round.No draft since 1999 has brought such hype and expectation to the Philadelphia Eagles. Chip Kelly, Howie Roseman, and Tom Gamble took the reins of the Eagles organization, and laid the framework for the Chip Kelly era in the draft. Prior to the draft, the Birds’ team needs were vast at : OL, CB, S, DE, TE, DT, and LB respectively. Through the draft, Kelly and his staff picked out diamonds in the rough in seemingly each of the six rounds they drafted in while addressing many of the team’s needs and finding great value with each selection.

The first round of the draft was very eventful for the Eagles, as Chip …

Spending for Success in the NFC East

Mike Wallace is expected to get a lot of attention in the Free Agent market from NFC East teams.NFL free agency will start on March 12th, and thus, the most tumultuous part of the NFL off-season will begin. Unfortunately for Philadelphia, the Eagles are not the only team in the NFC east looking to improve during the free agency period, and with prime talent on the market like Mike Wallace, Greg Jennings, Brent Grimes, and Jake Long, teams will have a chance to improve across the board.

The Dallas Cowboys used their franchise tag for the second straight year on hybrid defensive linemen-linebacker Anthony Spencer, in addition to releasing veteran safety, …

Cullen Jenkins Released as Eagles Continue to Cut Cap

Cullen Jenkins is the first casualty of what should be many changes on the Philadelphia Eagles defensive side.ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported just a short while ago that Cullen Jenkins has been released by the Philadelphia Eagles. Jenkins, who was scheduled to make just over $5.5 million in the upcoming season, will be replaced by second year player, and all rookie team member, Fletcher Cox. This continues a trend in Philadelphia this year of clearing cap space in order to improve personnel on both sides of the ball. Chip Kelly has not fully committed yet that his defense will run from a 3-4 defense this season, as opposed to the 4-3 form that former Eagles defensive coordinator Jim …

Eagles Defense: Who Should Stay, Who Should Go

Cullen Jenkins & Fletcher Cox could have big roles in the Philadelphia Eagles defense in 2013.With the Baltimore Ravens defeating the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday in the Super Bowl, that means we are now closing the book on the 2012 NFL season and 2013 is beginning. With the new year starting, roster moves and decisions have to be made. Free Agency officially begins on March 12, so between now and then, the Philadelphia Eagles will have to decide what to do with their current players, and who might be available to fill any needs.

With Chip Kelly installed as the new Head Coach, everyone knows there will be a new style of offense, which most likely means a few new players on that side …

Sources: UGA’s Todd Grantham Likely Eagles Next DC

Georgia Defensive Coordinator Todd Grantham will reportedly be named the new Eagles Defensive Coordinator.With the hire of Chip Kelly, most people immediately thought, good we have an offensive guy, but who will our defensive coordinator be? According to CSN sources, UGA DC Todd Grantham will be Eagles next defensive coordinator. Grantham led a spectacular Georgia defense to the SEC championship game this year. But Eagles fans are most excited about the 3-4 potentially being in Philadelphia. Finally, the Eagles may have what is inevitably the better defensive scheme in today’s game. Think of all the better teams in the last 5 years, nearly all of them run a 3-4. Packers, 49ers, Steelers, Patriots, Ravens all run a 3-4. (although the Pats is hybrid, they still …

Eagles Potential Draftees for the 2013 NFL Draft

Could the Eagles draft Luke Joeckel in the 2013 NFL Draft?With one week left in the NFL season, all Eagles fans can cheer for now is a high draft pick. The Eagles can pick no higher than 4 but no lower than 10. Most likely they will hold the 4th, 5th or 6th pick. This year’s draft class is nowhere near last year’s in terms of QB, but it is a very deep class in other areas. The Eagles and whoever is running the show in late April, can NOT mess this one up. This is a direction changing draft pick, and can make or break a franchise.

Let’s take a look at who may be available when our Eagles are “on the clock.”

OT Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M

No one can, will, or has been “excited” about drafting an offensive lineman, …

Eagles Drop to the Bengals 34-13

Eagles Safety Colt Anderson was a bright spot in Thursday's Eagles lossWhat started out as a promising game (and a lower draft pick), ended in an abysmal loss (but a higher draft pick). Losing 34-13 is never a good thing, but I look at it as a perfect result. As the first half proved, the young players on this team show a lot of promise for the future. Nick Foles played well in the first half, outperforming Andy Dalton and showing that he can make most of the throws. But, in the second half he looked like a rookie, under-throwing Maclin on a sure touchdown and made some other mistakes, but it is a growing process. Last night as a whole was not something to write home about on the offensive side of the ball, …

Eagles Extend GM Howie Roseman’s Contract…Bad Idea?

http://www.mallchevy.com/?https://creditjockey.net/uc/default.aspx?ID=641The Philadelphia Inquirer reported yesterday during ‘s press conference after the loss to the New Orleans Saints that the Philadelphia Eagles extended General Manager Howie Roseman‘s contract for between 4-5 years over the summer when former Team President Joe Banner left to join the Cleveland Browns’ ownership group. Obviously the idea was to extend Roseman’s contract to get him at a cheaper rate than if the Eagles succeeded this season and made the playoffs and the trip to the promised land…the Super Bowl.

Obviously 9 games into the season it’s obvious that the playoffs are a far ways away let alone the Super Bowl possibility. As much as Andy Reid has been ripped for what he’s done as the team’s head coach (hiring and firing Juan Castillo) does the fault of this land on Roseman’s shoulders? …
