Round 1, Pick #22 — for SI.com writers, a Ball of Confusion…

I’ve rarely seen such a wide array of disagreement among the head football writers at Sports Illustrated regarding a 1st Round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles. You know most of the writers’ names— Chris Burke, Don Banks, Doug Farrar — these are big names in the biz. They’re in the major leagues, baby. Usually they […]

Eagles begin OTA’s…and look for a brave new “gunner”…

The Eagles’ 2014 season officially begins quietly on April 22 with the first of the “voluntary” OTA’s… and the news that Colt Anderson, perhaps their best Special Teams tackler and “gunner”, has signed a contract with the Indianapolis Colts. Colt is an example of a can-do personality who made the transition from collegiate star defensive […]

Draftek sees “Mellow Yellow” in Eagles future…

This is a tale of a lost weekend with nose buried in at least 40 different Draft analyses and predictions involving the 2014 Philadelphia Eagles. I suffered so you would not have to…and by the way, Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all. I restricted my analysis to just the first 5 Rounds. What I […]

WillClarke

Whole lotta love for Will Clarke as OLB prospect for Eagles…

Tommy Lawlor and Tony Pauline are among the growing army of football writers who think the Eagles should take a long look at West Virginia’s Will Clarke as a guy they could move from DE to the right-side outside linebacker position. The Eagles actually did work Clarke out as a linebacker at his recent Pro […]

Eagles send Brizer on secret scouting trip to Hawaii…

And you thought our GateKeeper went to Hawaii for mere pleasure? Think again. GK Brizer was all about football business this past week as he scoured the Hawaiian islands for prospects. He gathered metrics on draft-eligible players who spent their college careers in our 50th state. Most of Brizer’s reports for the Eagles are classified […]

KurtColeman2

I was a secret fan of Kurt Coleman…

I wish I knew how to quit him…. But it’s all over now. Reserve safety and special teams ace Kurt Coleman is no longer an Eagles. Coleman has signed a 1-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings—probably for the league veteran minimum, but nevertheless a fresh start for the 5-11, 195-lb. athlete who was drafted by […]

Eagles need a contemporary Fight Song…and why I love Omar Kelly…

It’s time to get serious about choosing a modern “Fight Song” that Eagles Nation can relate to… “Fly Eagles Fly” is historically cute but it doesn’t have any teef in it anymore… (apologies to Don Pardo)… You look around the league, and we are desperately behind in modern stadium anthems… I guess Joe Banner didn’t […]

LitoSheppard3

Eagles looking for the next Lito Sheppard in draft…

The upcoming 2014 NFL Draft reminds me a lot of the 2002 draft in the way it feels like it is shaping up. The Eagles, coming off a winning/playoff season, picked 26th that year. They selected cornerback Lito Sheppard in the 1st Round. A playmaker at corner…seems like a plausible pursuit in 2014, too. Sheppard […]

Sonny1

For my money, Sonny Jurgensen was better than Johnny Unitas…

I know this sounds like blasphemy, but I thought Sonny Jurgensen should have beaten out Johnny Unitas in the recent NFLN poll ranking the game’s greatest quarterbacks. This is not homerism either… as Jurgensen played the bulk of his career with the Washington Redskins. But Sonny was originally drafted and groomed by the Eagles. And […]

KyleFuller

Kyle Fuller rising on Eagles’ mock charts…

Attention must be paid…. Kyle Fuller is suddenly popping up on Eagles’ 1st round radar… This is straight from Wikipedia: “A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Fuller attended Mount Saint Joseph High School. He recorded one interception his senior year, and played in the Maryland Crab Bowl,an all-star game, despite missing most of his season with […]

Scanning Eagles Nation for inspiration…

The first weekend in April is a time when you’ve got a chance to step back and look around, and appreciate the changes in the landscape which have been brewing. That idea applies to observing your Eagles and the NFL in general. It’s a time which may seem quiet right now but which is pregnant […]

BlockParty3

The good news is Eagles plan to throw a Block Party…

Underneath all the current TMZ/Deadspin buzz about the Eagles wide receiver situation is the term “downfield blocking.” Apparently the Eagles coaching staff is quite serious about its emphasis on a receiver’s willingness and ability to block. Position coaches have their own terminology for different positional blocking techniques. So I thought it might be helpful to […]

DeSeanandAent

Boom! Well there you have it…DeSean is a Redskins !!

Fait accompli… I guess this is “get-back” for the ‘Skins after we scored a draft pick off them in the Donovan McNabb trade. We knew it wouldn’t take long for DeSean Jackson to wind up on another roster—- but daggone it, did it have to be within the division? That’s entertainment. John Breech of CBSSports.com […]

Best of Brizer, Volume 2— Eagles’ smartest phan doesn’t back down…

Yes, GK Brizer is back from a short hiatus in which he was busy upgrading his technology. Most of you will remember Brizer as the Chairman of the Bored at the original PE.com “On The Inside” column going back to the Eagles’ Reid-McNabb Super Bowl appearance/contender era. Brizer was the voice of the Super-Fan in […]
