Chip Kelly’s Pre-Draft Watch List; Getting to Know Some Potential Draftees

Geno Smith could be at the top of Chip Kelly's want list on Draft Day for the Eagles.The time between free agency and the NFL draft is the slowest portion of the NFL off-season. The free agent pool has been depleted, new rules implemented (sorry Marshawn), new logos created (looking good Miami), playbooks explored and re-written, all that is left is the final piece of the NFL personnel puzzle: the NFL draft. The Philadelphia Eagles will draft fourth overall in this year’s draft, and have eight other selections in addition. The Eagles have draft picks in each of the first five rounds, and four selections in the final round of the draft. With much help needed on the roster, and an …

Would They? Could They? And Most Importantly, Should The Eagles Sign…?

Dashon Goldson should be at the top of the list for the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency when the deadline kicks off at 4:00 PM Tuesday.With just hours to go until free agency, all that is left for us to consider, is WHO the Eagles SHOULD sign, but the question will remain, will they? Philadelphia fans shudder with every memory of the horrendous moves by the front office in the 2009 free agency period, and the team’s needs this year echo those of free agencies past.

Philadelphia has been linked to free agents across the board from Jake Long to Dashon Goldson, but who are they really targeting? And more …

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, …

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 …

Eagles end the 2012 Season with Loss to Giants

Michael Vick more than likely has thrown his last pass as a Philadelphia Eagle.The Philadelphia Eagles’ 2012 season ended today at Metlife Stadium with a truly horrifying loss to the New York Giants, 42-7. The 14th season of Andy Reid as the Eagles head coach has also ended and quite possibly has coached his last Eagles game. There was nothing redeeming about this loss or the qualify of the effort put out on the field by many players on the 4-12 team. Michael Vick started the game and Trent Edwards finished it. Nnamdi Asomugha was benched.

The game started exactly like Reid’s coaching career in Philadelphia began…with a recovered onside kick. It would last all of 5 plays before Vick threw a ball over Brent Celek‘s head and landed in …

Eagles Problematic Spots for the 2013 Season

Eagles Safety Kurt Coleman has been a libility in the secondary.With no hockey season, Phillies winter wrapping up, and the Sixers sitting second to last in the Atlantic Division, there is not much to talk about. One thing that many fans have already been discussing is what should the Eagles do for next season. When will we get rid of Andy Reid? Who will replace our secondary? Is Nick Foles the future of the franchise?

I assumed with the rest of the city that Reid would be gone at the end of the season. We knew he would be able to finish out at least the season. Now, I am not so sure. With one year left on his contract, it is always a possibility that he will be standing on the sidelines for one more …

Eagles Defeat Tampa Bay 23-21 With Comeback

Eagles Quarterback Nick Foles engineered a come from behind victory over Tampa BayIf I told you Bryce Brown was held to six yards rushing, and Nick Foles was the leading rusher for the Eagles, that equates a loss. Right? Wrong. Nick Foles showed the Eagles faithful today why he deserves a chance at being the Eagles starting QB next year and perhaps beyond. 32-51 381 yards 2 TDs and 37 yds and a TD rushing was a star performance from the rookie out of Arizona. It is a big step in the development process for a young QB, getting that first win. Foles now has one, and is ready to continue to progress. The biggest thing was not the 380 yards or …

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

Looking at the Positives from the Eagles/Browns Game

The Eagles went into Cleveland heavy favorites over the Browns this past Sunday, but they only escaped by the skin of their teeth in a one-point victory. This has caused many people to hop off the bandwagon already. I have to admit, watching the game caused me to grow even more gray hairs than I already have. Michael Vick played like complete horse manure for 50 minutes, and the offensive line was more porous than a sponge. Most annoyingly, the replacement officials called an abundance of questionable penalties that stunted drives. Of course, that last one is commonplace across the entire league (just ask the Arizona Cardinals who were almost screwed out of their opening win because the refs gifted a fourth timeout to the Seattle Seahawks then lied about it), but having bad quarterback AND offensive line play can be a ticket to the bottom of the standings.
