There will be no journalizin’ today. I’ll be taking the advice of one Donovan J. McNabb: But before I load up on ribs, I should note that the NFC East is very American. The Cowboys self-proclaimed themselves “America’s Team,” the Eagle is the national bird and appears on the presidential seal, and the Giants’ uniform […]
• During the 2013 draft, there was a lot of talk about guards being drafted highly, and whether or not there was value there. A common thing for people to say about highly rated guards was “Well if he’s Larry Allen then hell yeah you’d take him that high.” Here’s a rare video of Allen chasing […]
My buddy Ed Valentine over at Big Blue View brought up the debate of whether or not David Wilson should return kicks this season. That’s always a fascinating debate to me, and one that I’ve had quite a bit with DeSean Jackson and Dez Bryant as punt returners. One way to look at the debate […]
Over the last 3 years, teams in the NFC East have averaged 7.75 wins. That’s not awful, but it’s obviously just below the league average of 8. The NFC East ranks 5th among the 8 NFL division in wins during that span. The NFC East also ranks 5th over the last 3 years in point […]
This morning, Jamie Dukes went on NFL Network and spoke into a camera. Let’s put his words in print, just because: “When you get to take the reps first, when you’re the first guy to step under center every day at practice, that means you’re the starter. But for some reason, those folks in the […]
Justin Tuck is in the final year of his contract, and he says he doesn’t want to think about a new deal. He shouldn’t, because his value has probably never been lower.

Despite disappointing results in the last two games, the Eagles are a good football team. Going into this week, they were first in the NFL in point differential and second in DVOA. Now, they remain third-best in the former and should stay near the top in the latter.Two losses, by a combined score of eight points, do not end the season. But they do show us what kind of team the Eagles are: one that can't afford to make mistakes if they want to compete for the division title. The truth is that the Eagles don't have many difference-making players. Fletcher Cox and (old bu…
The following is a guest post by @sunset_shazz.This is a wonderful time to be an Eagles fan. Jim Schwartz’s Attack Nine defense is rapidly exorcizing the ghost of Juan Castillo. Doug Pederson has rejuvenated an offense that had become stale and predictable under Chip Kelly. And, of course, rookie quarterback Carson Wentz is turning heads across the league, not to mention in the oval office.Eagles fans, unexpectedly blessed with success, look to the poet Browning to give voice to their collective sentiment:The lark's on the wing; The snail's on the thorn: God's in Hi…
The following is a guest post by @sunset_shazz.In the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis, one of the key lessons learned was that you cannot afford to ignore rare events, and that you should not assume that an event that rarely occurs is the same thing as one that never transpires. One of the key errors in subprime risk modeling was the assumption that there was zero probability of home price decline. As an old colleague of mine used to say, “never is a long time”.Which brings us to our friend David Murphy, who, a few weeks ago, with the arrogance and overconf…
Last March, Jeff Lurie told reporters he was was tired of waiting for the Eagles to be great. He’d seen sustained success, he’d been to a Super Bowl, and he’d watched his franchise post a solid 20-13 record (including a playoff loss) over the prior two seasons. It wasn’t enough.“I’ve lived through a lot of division championships, a lot of playoff appearances, a lot of final four appearances, but our goal is we want to deliver a Super Bowl,” he said at the time. “And sometimes maybe I’m influenced by the notion of it’s very difficult to get from good…
The following is a guest post by @sunset_shazz.Earlier today, DN columnist David Murphy published a contrarian piece purporting to show that the Eagles have neglected the offensive side of the ball in the draft under Chip Kelly. His lazy “analysis” consisted of counting up Eagles draft picks for the offensive and defensive units over the past 3 years. Even the dullest of readers can see the problem: this method equates the pick of Lane Johnson with that of Jordan Poyer. Or Zach Ertz and David King.When pressed upon this obvious flaw by friend of the blog Noah Becker…
It's amazing what a win over Dallas will do for your spirits. The Eagles went into the bye week at 3-4, reeling from a loss to Carolina that wasn't particularly close. Post-bye, post-victory over a hated rival, and they're 4-4, with the wind at their back, a rejuvenated team.All it took was a few fourth down tries, a revived running game, and a kicker that finally made a clutch field goal longer than 50 yards. Suddenly it's "the biggest win of the Chip Kelly era" (which is really saying something about the Chip Kelly era, unfortunately).Sam Bradford is fixed. He's "cont…
I'm starting to think Chip Kelly, our beloved head coach and offensive mastermind, may not be on the same page with the Eagles general manager. In fact, hot take alert here, the GM may be actively sabotaging Chip. Let's examine the evidence.In 2013, Kelly proved he could take a collection of players drafted by other people and mold them into a successful team. The defense, sure, was a bit rough. But Kelly inherited an offense of Andy Reid's making and turned it into something special. The offensive line dominated, with the left side anchored by two all-pro players, an…
Last week, I placed the blame for the Eagles' 0-2 start squarely at the feet of the offense. Despite this week's win over the Jets (yay!), Chip Kelly's favorite unit continued to perform woefully.Yes, Ryan Mathews, subbing in for DeMarco Murray, rushed for 108 yards on 25 carries. But his numbers hide the fact that there were still far too many negative or no gain rushes (10 total). Between Mathews and Darren Sproles, the rushing game averaged just 3.47 yards per carry, a heady improvement from the prior weeks, but nothing to get excited about. Everyone on the offensiv…
If you watched the putrid Thursday Night Football game between the Giants and the Redskins last night, there was some solace for Philly fans. Mainly that everyone else in this division is pretty much just as #terrible as the Eagles.That does leave room for optimism, despite two of the worst Eagles games in recent memory, strung back to back at the start of this season. The truth is that as bad as the Eagles have been, they still can turn things around. The question is whether their awful play so far is the result of fundamental, uncorrectable problems or something more…
When Chip Kelly entered the NFL in 2013, many people derided his offense as a "college" or "gimmick" system, with its unconventional no huddle, quarterback read option, plus other aspects of the spread. Kelly pioneered packaged play concepts (those run-pass hybrids) and play call communication techniques like giant signs and coaches doing weird hand signals. Anyone who thought that wouldn't work was wrong. His offense rocked the league in year one, putting up big numbers and carrying a terrible defense to the playoffs.Many Eagles fans, including myself, enjoyed a victor…

Coming off a loss that Mike Zimmer termed “embarrassing,” a 21-10 defeat against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Minnesota Vikings will look at all options to rectify the situation.
It sounds crazy to say out loud, but you'll find out quickly just how hard it is to name five NFL quarterbacks who are worse than Blake Bortles. I know, it just doesn’t seem right. Go through the list of starting NFL quarterbacks and find five you wouldn’t take over Bortles. The challenge is tremendous. Most of the ones you wouldn’t take over Bortles are obvious and will not even be starting next season.
A few running backs put the rush back into in NFL games with big performances on Sunday, but that was just part of the record-setting and noteworthy action in Week 7.
