2013 Eagles: Loss to the Saints and Season in Review

It was more than most expected.  It was probably more than I realistically expected.  At the beginning of the season I had said the Birds would go 9-7 and maybe sneak into the playoffs, but I knew that their full potential would probably be needed for my very optimistic opinion to come true. Many though […]

Who Balled & Who Stalled: Eagles Season Ends in Heartbreaking Fashion, 26-24 to Saints

In one disappointing end to an otherwise incredible season, the Philadelphia Eagles fell 26-24 to the New Orleans Saints at Lincoln Financial Field.

Xs and Os: Eagles-Saints Wild Card Round Preview and Prediction

Fantasy Watch: LeSean McCoy (PHI) and Jimmy Graham (NO) It is fair to say that the Eagles will have a huge mismatch in the run game. The Saints are porous against the run, ranked 28th in yards per carry allowed (4.6), starting with their front three; disregard defensive end Cameron Jordan, who made the Pro […]

Eagles Offense Could Break 10 Franchise Records This Sunday

Coming into the 2013-2014 NFL season, many “pundits” predicted that Chip Kelly’s spread offense mentality that he brought from Oregon would not work in the NFL. He could not run the same read-option running plays five times on the same drive and be a successful NFL coach. Boy, have they been wrong. The Philadelphia Eagles […]

Xs and Os: Eagles-Bears Week 16 Preview and Prediction

Playoff Implications: Bears (8-6) @ Eagles (8-6) This game has huge implications for the NFC playoff picture. The Bears lead the NFC North, but only by .5 a game over the Packers and 1 game over the Lions. The Eagles lead the NFC East, but only by a game over the Cowboys who they play […]

Eagles Bucs

Xs and Os: Eagles-Buccaneers Week 6 Preview and Prediction

Fantasy Watch: Riley Cooper (PHI) and Doug Martin (TB) The Tampa Buccaneers run defense is stout. Led by defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and middle linebacker Mason Foster, they are ranked 9th in the NFL giving up only 94.3 yards per game. Last season when the Eagles played the Bucs with Nick Foles under center, the […]
