Testing the comfort zone of the Eagles O-Line…

I get the sense that Chip Kelly feels pretty comfortable about his offensive line heading into the next stage of the 2015 preseason. Sure, the prospect of losing the somewhat disgruntled Pro Bowl left guard Evan Mathis (money matters) doesn’t sit well with many fans— but Kelly seems okay with that possibility. Kelly relies on […]

Tales of Brave Chip-Ulysses as Eagles audition 16 DB’s…

Maybe this is the Eagles era we will remember on our deathbeds, and we will chant in unison, “Those Were The Days…” That would be nice— because it would mean all the sturm und drang stirred up by Chip Kelly over these past 3 years paid off—he has basically ripped apart the Reid/Banner “Gold Standard” […]

Eagles picture book on a sunny May day…

Not much breaking news football-wise on the Philadelphia Eagles today— but it is good to see many of the players led by Connor Barwin assisting in the emergency relief efforts at the Amtrak derailment disaster scene just outside the city. Linebacker Jordan Hicks, the Eagles’ third-round pick out of Texas, agreed to terms with the […]

More questions than real answers for the Eagles

This is a cray-cray world for Eagles fans right now… We gamble on the health aspect of the ACL-injury recovery for QB Sam Bradford… We also hope for the best for his backup Mark Sanchez… We watch in awe as the Eagles draft a bunch of cornerback talent and sign a bevy of wide receiver […]

Vegas has the Eagles over/under Wins total at 9.5 for 2015 season…

We here at the EYE use the post-draft over/under NFL Team Win projections from the Vegas sports books as the basis for GK BRIZER’s annual “Dark Horse” Contest… The idea is to pick two teams you think will overachieve their preseason win projections.  Entrant with the two teams with the biggest positive splash differential is […]

Howie’s legacy and Chip’s new world order in Philly…

Eagles rookie camp came to a close on Sunday but it’s just the beginning of a long summer of graduate school-style education and trial by fire for 6 drafted and 16 undrafted newbies. 22 candidates vying for maybe 5 open spots on the Final 53 and another 5 or 6 jobs on the Practice Squad…those […]

The rookies (6 drafted and 16 undrafted) will be joined by eleven other guys who were invited to try out for the team: Daniel Fitzpatrick, DB, Tennessee State Ofa Hautau, DT, Oklahoma State Mike Johnson, WR, Delaware Vince […]

Betting on an instant draft upgrade for Eagles is risky business…

These days you can place a bet with a reputable sports gambling establishment on just about anything — including how well you think your team drafted based upon future impact. There are a lot of metric variables to consider in a future impact bet when judging a team draft. Some of these involve total snaps […]

QB still a $20 million question mark for Eagles…

There seems to be no way around the price tag for a championship-quality NFL quarterback. If you find your guy, you’ll end up spending about $20 million a year to keep him. If you cobble together a substitute group of quarterbacks for one season with championship upside, as Chip Kelly has done in Philly, you […]

Recap of Eagles draft…and the crowning of BROZ as a 2-time MACH champ…

Isn’t it ironic that our resident Eagles analyst ~BROZ took sides with the Rebel contingent of the MACH 10 Challenge—but the sanctioned version of the Draft contest took up for the traditional validity of his winning ballot— despite being deserted by his own troops, who declared DON PARDO as the alternative, unsanctioned 2015 champ? How […]
