Eagles on the clock— and so are our phans with their MACH 10 entries…

You think putting together a 7-round mock draft for the 2015 Eagles is a monumental task combining good research and a huge measure of intuition and luck? Well, you’re right— and hats off to all who are submitting their own MACH 10 ballots in the Comments section below. Midnight (A.M.) of April 30 approaches fast […]

Lawlor likes Bud Dupree as OLB pick for Eagles as draft drama builds…

Tommy Lawlor gave a real nice review of Kentucky star linebacker Bud Dupree in yesterday’s edition of Iggles Blitz. Lawlor’s main reasons he believes Dupree is a good fit for the Eagles for years to come: versatility in a 3-4 defense, speed (4.56 ’40) to go along with great size, fair agility accented with a […]

Lost in the Tebow shuffle was Phillip Dorsett’s visit to Philly…

Amazingly the power of Tebow as a media magnet overshadows the regular business of any team he becomes a part of… ATV calls it the “circus factor”… I’m beginning to understand that. Call it show biz, or call it burlesque… Tebow sells ratings, even if it is not the prettiest picture a producer could draw…I […]

Not a great day for Matt Barkley as Eagles sign Tim Tebow…

“Oh good… Chip lost his mind.” And so Dr. Funt (the Canadian boy genius) commented upon the impending signing of a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles by the 27-year-old quarterback Tim Tebow. To many of us this makes no sense. To some of us, it is a perfect fit… Hudson Hawk and Fieldsie love […]

More Eagles MACHingbird stuff…

The 9th annual Eagles MACH 10 Challenge is already open for business. This is the official GK Brizer-sanctioned contest in which the rules are simple: PICK 10 rookies you think will be drafted by the Eagles. It’s as simple as that. No need for selection by Round…just list the names of 10 guys in the […]

Eagles fans are exhausted because of guys like Jaws…

Don’t get me wrong, I love Ron Jaworski… I mean, I love his Eagles’ legacy as a team leader and his commentary skills as an NFL analyst for ESPN… but man, is he down on Chip Kelly or what?!?! It’s amazing to me that a former Eagles QB seems so intent upon second-guessing every move […]

Updating the Eagles pre-draft visit list…

Of all the pre-draft visits arranged by the Eagles so far, the one I’m most excited by is CB/S Eric Rowe (6-1, 205, Utah, 4.45 ’40, 19 bench reps, projected as a 2nd round pick). Actually, Rowe has had two extended visits with the Eagles—an official day at NovaCare, and a private workout near Eric’s […]

Saving Cox and Cedric for the 2016 Eagles defensive line…

I just realized today that emerging defensive line star Fletcher Cox has a 5th-year option still remaining on his 2012 rookie contract with the Eagles. I had been concerned that Cox, who is in the fourth year of his rookie contract, has not yet been offered a new contract extension deal from the Eagles. My […]

The context of Combine, game tape and live scouting in Eagles draft…

Over the last two decades the NFL Scouting Combine has really impacted the personnel evaluation process of the Eagles. But it is still only about 20 percent (my own estimate) of the decision factors involved in picking a prospect. The real value of the Combine is (a) it provides you with a comprehensive medical report […]

Receivers have to block in Chip Kelly’s system…

One thing I tend to overlook when trying to evaluate a receiver is how well he needs to be able to block when he is not a primary target. It seems Chip Kelly puts a higher value on this quality than previous Eagles head coaches. Now that the Chippah is omnipotent in pro personnel selection, […]
