Eagles D must tighten up against underrated Houston offense…

Everybody’s talking about the Texans (4-4) bringing their aggressive defensive power against the Eagles (5-2) offense this Sunday. It’s being billed in Houston as a classic showdown. One of the best things to ever come out of Houston was my fave R&B group Archie Bell and the Drells. They had a hit out in the […]

Difficult schedule for Eagles in November

The Philadelphia Eagles were one of the last undefeated teams this year and have stayed strong since losing their first game of 2014. After eight weeks, the Eagles stand at 5-2, right in the thick of the division title race in the NFC East. A crucial stretch of their schedule comes in November, though, as […]


Red Zone TD Efficiency is the Elephant in Eagles meeting room…

Okay, so the NFL stats say the Eagles offense so far in 2014 is the worst “red-zone” team in terms of TD-scoring efficiency… What does that really mean? The Eagles have a minus-7 turnover ratio and the red-zone touchdown efficiency is at 34.78 percent, 32nd in the NFL. But when you analyze those numbers, it […]


At least Jeremy Maclin is really back for Eagles at WR… did a sweet infographic on the good stats and nice developments that came out of a tough loss to the Cardinals— you can see the full-size infographic by linking to Infographic: Maclin’s Career Day Maclin had 12 receptions for 187 yards and 2 TD’s against the Cardinals. He’s scored at least 1 TD in […]

Arizona Cardinals v Oakland Raiders

Raising (Hell In) Arizona—Eagles at Cards Livefyre Tailgate…

I have an irrational desire to witness the Eagles beat the Cardinals. It goes back a long way. It doesn’t matter what their records are. Both teams sit at 5-1 right now. I would be equally invested in the game if both teams were at 1-5. For me it’s about the Bidwills. Owner Bill Bidwill […]

Kelce and Mathis return to practice for Eagles…sort of…

Eagles must slow down the Andre Ellington train…

Everyone talks about Dangerous Larry and how he gives the Eagles defense Fitz, but the Cardinals have something else coming down the tracks this Sunday that could pose even bigger matchup challenges. It’s double-threat running back Andre Ellington, the 5-9, 199 lb. 2nd-year guy out of Clemson who’s currently running through and around NFL defenses […]


Eagles’ upgrades to 2014 roster are paying off…

Our good friend Sunbutts scoffs at my use of the term “upgrade” when referring to the new and improved Philadelphia Eagles roster in 2014. I suppose he has a critical point— Sunbutts judges a team’s overall quality by how deep it goes in the playoffs. It’s still way too early at 5-1 to project the […]

Eagles finish season with two crucial divisional road games

The Philadelphia Eagles have lived up to the hype thus far in 2014, as they started the year a perfect 4-0 and sit at an impressive 5-1 through the first six weeks. LeSean McCoy finally went off in week six, while the offense has warmly welcomed back wide receiver Jeremy Maclin from a knee injury […]


Toppers and Tossers from Fran Duffy’s classroom during Eagles Bye Week…

Fran Duffy is getting better and better each week as a writer of things which explain how Eagles football works. Best of all he throws in superb GIF illustrations to go with his written words— words which are strung together in simple understandable terminology. Duffy has worked his way up at from an associate […]


So far so good for Eagles in a war of attrition…

The NFL season is a war of attrition— I know, that is a statement which comes directly from Captain Obvious. But how a team deals with and adjusts to the inevitable injuries it is bound to suffer is not only a survival skill but a key to winning— especially late in the season when the […]


New York State of Mind after tough loss to the Eagles…

I feel no ill will against the New York Giants as a franchise. I’m glad the Eagles are trending in a positive direction, but I take no special delight in the struggles of the Giants right now. It’s probably just a temporary glitch in their overall season anyway… The Eagles fan base has endured some […]


Eagles’ consistent defense and offense outplay Giants, 27-0…

A shutout in the NFL is extremely rare. The Eagles (5-1) got one over the New York Giants (3-3) Sunday night, 27-0. Defensive coordinator Bill Davis really mixed up some superb pressure formulae and got Eli Manning to drink the non-therapeutic medicine. The Birds go off on a Bye Week now to recharge and replenish […]
