Training Camp opens for Eagles—baby it’s hot out there!

Rookies and select and injury-recovering Eagles were there, all the veteran players don’t report until Wednesday, so Monday’s drills were limited. The QB’s often threw without defensive backs on the field. It was hot and humid, but the players weren’t wearing pads, so it was fairly calm out there. ESPN.com’s Phil Sheridan was there: “All […]

Eagles’ pre-season buffet…GK Brizer’s 115th Dream…

In Bob Dylan’s 115th Dream, he sails with the crew of the Mayflower which lands in 1965-era New York. Predicaments and surprises ensue. On the way back out of New York Harbor, Dylan passes Christopher Columbus and yells “Good Luck!”… In GK Brizer’s 115th Dream, he gathers his crew of Evergreen Bored members and parks […]

Beau Allen

Beau knows he can make big plays in Eagles’ new defense…

After spending the first two years of his NFL career at the nose tackle position, Beau Allen will get a chance to move back to defensive tackle in a 4-3 system. This is not an earth-shaking revelation—but I am guessing Eagles fans are going to rediscover Beau Allen as a much more athletic football player […]

Eagles winning ways must begin in the trenches…

Head coach Doug Pederson says he wants to “Win Now” in his first year at the reins of the Eagles. If he’s serious about that (and I believe he means it), then the first order of business in training camp will be to put together the best personnel combinations and depth he can muster for […]

Summer Steam is Rising for Eagles as TC and preseason approach…

We are only days removed from players reporting to Training Camp, and only weeks away from the Eagles’ first preseason game. It’s a steamy part of summer in Philly in more ways than one. First I’d like to give props to Malcolm Jenkins in the community involvement department. The Eagles safety has paired his foundation […]

What made the Swamp Fox a special coach and a very good man…

The “Swamp Fox” is gone. He had a great run. Marion Campbell, a former All-Pro defensive lineman on the Philadelphia Eagles’ 1960 championship team who later went on to become their defensive coordinator and ultimately head coach, died Wednesday at the age of 87, the team announced Sunday night. Some of you younger folks may […]

Eagles wide receivers seeking 3rd degree of separation…

Two words: Anquan Boldin. Explain to me how a guy with 4.7 speed consistently gets open, holds on to the ball thrown in traffic, and racks up 5 to 15 yards after the catch? It’s the secret ingredient currently missing in the Eagles passing attack. We have talented wide receivers if you go by pedigree. […]

Eagles’ significant place in the evolution of the punt…

I was pondering former Eagles’ punter Brad Wing’s good fortune the other day. The young man from Melbourne just signed a long-term deal with the Giants. It runs through 2019, and it includes $6.45 million in new money and $3.725 million in guarantees — a nice deal for a punter who made $510,000 last year […]

Pro Football Focus has Eagles QB numbers in the red…

I don’t hate Pro Football Focus, I just don’t think football can be boiled down to isolated abstract numbers. Nothing in a football game happens in a vacuum. My personal stats as a player are inextricably dependent upon my teammates’ performances. That’s one reason I look at PFF’s player and team rankings just a little […]

Back from the seas and I sees Eagles underestimated again…

Thanks for holding down the fort while I was gone fisking. It was a brutally hot and humid Saturday in the Chesapeake Bay, but Sunday cooled down nicely and the striped bass were biting! Naturally getaway day (Monday) is a drag as it requires an early rise to gather all your junk, pack the cooler […]

Join the Eagles as they train (and BBQ) out west this weekend!

A flock of Eagles is working out under a professional trainer all this week and weekend in San Diego, California. Tim McManus has all the details in his report for PhillyMag.com. To sum up the basic quick-read details, renowned trainer Todd Durkin is hosting the Eagles’ week-long get together at Fitness Quest 10. “A few Durkin […]

ZZ Top is my choice for musical soundtrack for Eagles training camp…

And why not? They’re Texas tested! As American a band as you’ll ever experience, better than fireworks! We’re all just looking for some tush in the way of post-season relevance again, aren’t we? While you’re enjoying your July 4th holiday wherever you are, here is the current Eagles roster depth chart you must ponder: Pos […]

Abe Linc’s EAGLES tribute to American Independence Day

American heritage is derived from violent confrontation. This is an historical fact which is reflected in the game of football. The winner of the game seizes more territory or scores more hits on the ultimate target than the enemy. Unfortunately, in the real world that kind of physical and mental resistance to domination is required […]

Happy Canada Day to all Eagles fans!

The EYE loves its Canadian Eagles fans—they make up a significant portion of our global audience and contribute mightily to the Bored discussions which feature daily hockey fights in the Livefyre comments section below. Canada Day celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America […]

Eagles need a better answer for the Redskins in 2016…

This bloig is more of a palate cleanser than anything of real insight— got to keep moving past the network commercial ticket-selling headlines sooner rather than later… Todays news flash— the Washington Redskins and Kirk Cousins cost the Eagles the division title last year. More accurately, Kirk Cousins carved up our defense like Jack the […]

Fondest Eagles memories revisited…

This is just a sampling of some of the greatest Eagles stories ever told  as chronicled by Eli Kowalski in his 2008 book called “Looking Back: 75 Years of Eagles History”… Here are my favorites of Eli’s favorites: “I remember this so vividly—it was 1957, Bill Stribling got hurt in my rookie year in the […]
