Eagles Continue to Add Depth; Acquire LB Acho in Trade With Browns

Linebacker Emmanuel Acho was acquired by the Eagles Thursday for running back Dion Lewis.If you were looking forward to blockbuster trades and free agent signings from the Philadelphia Eagles this off-season, you were surely disappointed. Yet the prospective roster for the upcoming year keeps growing. The Eagles have added depth across the board, and that approach to personnel continued with a trade completed early Thursday morning.

Emmanuel Acho has been acquired by the Eagles in exchange for former fifth rounder Dion Lewis. Lewis was drafted in 2011, and never made much of an impact with the Birds, only rushing for 171 yards on 36 carries over two season with the team. Acho was a sixth round selection for Cleveland from a season …

Connor Barwin Last Piece of the Eagles’ Defensive Puzzle?

The Philadelphia Eagles added Connor Barwin to the defense on Thursday.What a Thursday in the city of brotherly love, the Eagles added yet another free agent in what has been a very busy off-season for general manager Howie Roseman. Earlier in the day, Philadelphia added secondary help in Kenny Phillips and Cary Williams, but the Eagles’ front office staff wasn’t finished for the day as the Birds also confirmed the signing of former Houston Texans outside linebacker Connor Barwin to a six-year deal reportedly worth $36 million with $8 million guaranteed.

Head coach Chip Kelly alongside new defensive coordinator Billy Davis have illustrated their intention to change the scheme of Philadelphia’s defensive unit, if only in part. Billy Davis

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 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, …

An Eagles Fan’s Holiday Wishlist

Eagles Head Coach Andy Reid will not be back next year. Who will the Eagles replace him with?With Christmas just around the corner, every Eagles fan is undoubtedly looking for a merciful end to this dreadful season in their stocking. However, Santa is no miracle worker and this team still has two games to play, whether we want them to or not.

Curses!

However, just because we have to suffer through two more painstaking games this season doesn’t mean we can’t look ahead to the future. To that end, here is a list of things all Eagles fans should ask Santa for this week.

1) Fire Andy Reid, Hire Mike Zimmer

I don’t think there’s an Eagles fan left in Philadelphia that wants to see Reid back as head coach next year. After years of garnering support from Jeffrey “The Grinch” …

The Eagles’ Letdown at the Linc

Eagles Quarterback Michael Vick Had a Face Full of Turf & a Concussion in Sunday's Loss“America’s Game of the Week” was an utter disaster for fans of the Philadelphia Eagles.  What started out as a promising mix of fantastic offensive drives and multiple sacks on Dallas Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo, ended in an abysmal array of fumbles, missed tackles, and back to back to back scoring drives against the Birds in a 38-23 blowout.  What happened?  Where did we go wrong?  Was it Michael Vick’s concussion in the 2nd quarter that ultimately sealed our untimely fate?  Was it another round of mistake-laden play-calling and wasted timeouts?  Or did the Cowboys just plain beat us?  If you guessed all of …

Eagles at Saints: HighPhive.net’s Staff Predictions!

Eagles Quarterback Michael Vick Will Lead His Team into the New Orleans SuperdomeTonight the Philadelphia Eagles will play the Drew Brees‘ led New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football. Both teams are in need of a win as the Eagles are 3-4 and the Saints are 2-5. The Eagles struggles have been well covered on this website and the Saints defense is one of the worst in the NFL this season.

Derek Sabato:

I don’t see a scenario in which the Eagles win this game. I’ve played it out in my head all week and not one of them resulted in a thought process leading to them winning. Michael Vick needs to light up the atrocious Saints defense to have some sort of shot …

Week 8: Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles at Waterloo

Eagles Head Coach Andy ReidThe Philadelphia Eagles emerge from the bye week with a 3-3 record on the heels of the figurative sacrifice of the oft criticized and frequently over matched “offensive-line coach turned defensive coordinator” Juan Castillo. Although most around the league (and fan base) knew the Castillo experiment was destined for failure, it regrettably took Andrew Reid and the rest of the Eagles brain trust 22 games to reach that conclusion – a frightening realization. However, despite the maddening mediocrity that has dominated the narrative of the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles – there still is reason to believe that the next 10 games may prove successful – and the requisite success needed to save Michael Vick and Reid’s jobs in Philadelphia may still be attainable. Many will say that the Eagles are one defensive stop …
