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 PhiladelphiaEagles.com 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 […]


The Longest Day for Eagles fans is a Sunday night game vs. Giants…

By no means do I intend to trivialize or minimize the historical “Longest Day”, which was the June 6, 1944 invasion of Normandy by the Allied Forces in WWII. It just feels a little bit like that for Iggles phans as we contemplate and prepare for a prime-time Sunday showdown with the New York Giants. […]


Coming of age moment for Eagles’ Marcus Smith against G-Men…

Well, the Eagles have officially ruled out ILB Mychal Kendricks for Sunday night’s game against the Giants. Also fellow ILB Demeco Ryans is questionable (groin injury)— but my guess is ‘Meco gives it a go at least to start the game… That leaves Casey Matthews and a dinged-up Emmanuel Acho as your inside linebacker alternates. […]

Eagles vs Giants tickets are most expensive of Week 6

The Philadelphia Eagles sit atop the NFC East with a solid 4-1 record. Despite their success to start the 2014 season, it still seems like they haven’t come close to playing their best football. That largely stems from issues with their offensive line, as star running back LeSean McCoy hasn’t consistently had room to run […]


Giants (3-2) see this game against Eagles (4-1) as their turning point…

These early-season division rivalry games between the Eagles and the Giants are usually the nastiest— mainly because each team knows they still have a high-percentage chance of domming the division if they come out on top. The coaches of both teams fire up their guys on the prospect of putting away their opponent early. Yes, […]


Eagles missed a shot at drafting Russell Wilson…

I know it’s sacrilegious for me to say this— but I wish we had drafted Russell Wilson in 2012. Don’t worry, we have plenty of time to get to the big Giants-Eagles street fight coming up this weekend. This is just a little off-the-cuff field trip for me into Crazytown after watching Wilson and the […]


Eagles survive late comeback by Rams to prevail, 34-28…

I can’t explain why the Eagles’ defense and special teams are scoring more TD’s than their offense right now, but I sure am grateful for that fact. I know ST coordinator Dave Fipp and DC Bill Davis are smiling today though, and that’s good enough for me. “Tough 4-1, soft 4-1, it doesn’t matter,” Eagles […]
