DeMeco Ryans has emerged as a real leader for Eagles defense…

I hope you don’t mind my homage to the unsung hero of the Eagles’ current defensive system— DeMeco Ryans. DeMeco as you know is the 9th year inside linebacker who wears the radio-helmet that gets the last-second calls from the sideline and who basically captains the Eagles’ front-seven defense. In recent weeks DeMeco has been […]

Monday (July 28) at noon is when the contact drills begin for the 2014 Eagles— and a full house of curious fans is expected at Lincoln Financial Field to witness the occasion. There is to be no tackling to the ground, but guys will be hitting each other in full pads, so the competition for […]

It’s way too easy to get lost in the illusion that our attention and energy spent on following the Iggles is more important than it really is […]

Malcolm in the Middle of Eagles preseason speculation…

I heard a remarkable statistic the other day, that the Eagles defense in 2013 was on the field 210 more total plays than any other team in the league. Can that stat be possibly true? Am I “mis-remembering” it? That would be the equivalent of two extra games that the defense had to play. Before […]

Eagles on the eve of instruction— some questions I have heading into TC…

Players report to Training Camp on July 25, a mere week and a half away. Their first order of business will be undergoing medical exams and conditioning tests. Ever wonder exactly what those “conditioning tests” are? Well, each position group has to complete a series of sprints at various yardages under certain time limits. As […]
