Eagles optimism from Woody as we head into Final 53 weekend…

Frequent visitors here and at Dave Spadaro’s “On The Inside” column at PE.com will remember J. Wood, or “Woody” as he is affectionately known among our fan gallery. Woody was one of the original sidekicks of the “Four Horsemen” of the Bored of Iggles/PE.com commentators from which I like to feel we are all descended […]


Catching up on the Packers PS game—and the first Eagles cuts…

I lost my internet connection Saturday night while the Eagles-Packers game had just started. I of course was on Smith Island and everything seemed to be working great— then a bit of a squall came up and we lost all cell and network contact. I just got back home this Monday afternoon after a 5 […]


Packers pull the rug on meaningful matchup with the Eagles 1’s in PS3…

In the wake of Jordy Nelson’s untimely ACL injury in their previous preseason game, the Green Bay Packers have apparently decided to hold out most of their starters from this Saturday evening’s scheduled PS3 game with the Eagles. In Wednesday’s practice, GB QB Aaron Rodgers’ reps were lighter than they’ve been all training camp — […]


Why Keeping Kenjon Barner as a 4th RB is a tough decision for Eagles…

It’s great to see a young tailback actually making splash plays as a punt returner in preseason, to the point where he’s seriously in the conversation for being kept on the final roster as a 4th RB. Kenjon Barner is doing just that. “He’s making a huge case,” coach Chip Kelly said after the game, […]


Sam’s big date—Eagles host Ravens in PS2…

Consider this Sam Bradford’s first real date with the cruel but exotically beautiful mistress known as Eagles Destiny… Sam’s like a virgin again, and we’re sending him off to the prom with a clean suit, a $50 expense account and a clean but used Corvair… Sure his moves may be rusty. Realistically, I hope he […]


Day 2 of Eagles-Ravens practice ramps up the line play contact…

You kinda knew the full contact drills between the Eagles and the Ravens in the trenches were going to get ramped up on Thursday after Chip Kelly spent most of his pre-practice interview praising the Ravens offensive and defensive lines. Things got a little rough out there on Thursday—but featured clean play, for the most […]


Super impressions from Eagles joint practice with Ravens…

Most of the impressions I’m talking about are photographic, thanks to the great work of both the Eagles and Ravens PR staff photographers. But some notes on things I thought stood out from the first day of joint practice: As ATV our analyst from Henderson, Nevada had warned us, Eagles rookie CB Eric Rowe did […]


Wondering which Ravens could upgrade Eagles roster…

Ten years with the Eagles—John Harbaugh was hired by Ray Rhodes out of the Indiana program in 1998, and Andy Reid kept Harbs on board when he took over the team in 1999. In 2007, after serving as Eagles’ special teams coach for nine years, he became Andy’s defensive backs coach. This fulfilled his request […]


Sam’s plan as Eagles practice against Ravens this week…

In case you were wondering about how Sam Bradford is scheduled to prepare for his expected start against the Ravens this weekend, here is the plan— right from Dave Spadaro’s PE.com On The Inside column: “The plan for Bradford is this: he will participate in the joint training sessions with the Baltimore Ravens this week […]


More positives than negatives as Eagles beat Colts, 36-10…

It was about 110 degrees F. down at field level at the Linc on Sunday— just a hot and miserable environment for football. But the Birds made the best of it. The positives for the Eagles were outstanding. We learned rookie WR Nelson Agholor (despite a typical rookie drop of a short uncontested pass) is […]


Eagles Open Season On Monday Night Football Against Atlanta Falcons

The Battle of the Birds will be the first Monday Night Football matchup of the 2015 season.  Taking place at the Georgia Dome, both the Eagles and Falcons will look to begin the season on a high note and get a victory against a team that fell just short of the playoffs last season. Currently, […]


Sam Bradford is the man for the Eagles, skinny legs and all…

Apologies to the late Joe Tex— but “Skinny Legs and All” is our Eagles QB1 going into the 2015 NFL season. Sam Bradford has weathered the storm of doubt about (a) his desire to continue to play this tough sport after two years of pain and frustration, and (b) his willingness to prove himself at […]


Eagles DC Bill Davis thinks he knows what he’s got on defense…

One of the biggest hazards of coaching at the NFL level is going into a season not really knowing what you have or don’t have in proven talent and football IQ among your players. You run the risk of “hoping” your chosen guys will come through, instead of knowing and trusting your players will excel […]
