Eagles QB battle going to be crazy

At this point in the offseason, I’m having trouble identifying a guy as the guaranteed starting quarterback for the Eagles come the regular season. While this is common among many teams, there’s a problem with the reason why there’s a QB controversy. While some teams have to deal with two or three really good players fighting for that one starting position, I don’t see one specific guy that would be a good option to start … Continue reading

Andy Reid is gone…so who’s next?

Monday marked the end of Andy Reid’s infamous 14-year tenure as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. I say infamous because more people probably complained about him more than cheered him. But considering he lasted 14 years with a team in general is remarkable considering most coaches last about three and then move on to somewhere else. The Eagles had some ups and downs as he was coach, but many people overlook the good … Continue reading

Eagles look to ride the momentum after beating Bucs

The Eagles won a game. “Wow, great for them” says most people, but this is an especially important feat considering it was the first time they had won in two months. They were riding an eight game losing streak, but now they have bounced back. Well, at least a little bit. A win against the Buccaneers isn’t the greatest win in the world, but a win is a win. It was the Eagles’ fourth, and … Continue reading

Eagles come back to beat Ravens, move to 2-0

The last time the Eagles went 2-0 to start the season, they made it to the Super Bowl (2004). While this may seem like a dumb statistic, it is definitely one to consider. Are the Eagles really a Super Bowl-caliber team? I mean, they barely beat the Browns a week ago. But here they are, beating another Super Bowl contender in the Baltimore Ravens in their home opener. That’s something to get excited about. After … Continue reading

Eagles edge out win in turnover-fest over Browns

Words cannot describe how anxious and excited I was for the Eagles to begin the regular season today. They went undefeated in the preseason and many new guys looked promising and talented. But after watching that game, I almost wish it had never happened. That was easily the worst NFL game that I have ever watched. Despite the awfulness of it, the Eagles still got the win 17-16 over the Browns in the Dog Pound. … Continue reading

Eagles get to 53, but not without surprises

It seemed like the QB controversy was the main thing on the minds of many Eagles fans, and when their biggest round of cuts came without the release of a quarterback, it probably left some fans confused, including me. I felt like keeping all four quarterbacks would be a mistake and use up an important spot on the roster, but they eventually followed through with the release of Mike Kafka, not to my surprise. They … Continue reading

Eagles backups get victory over Steelers

After watching the first quarter of play, I felt miserable. The Eagles’ starters looked awful against the Steelers’ starters in every way possible. They scored no points at all in the first half, and starters DeSean Jackson, Michael Vick, and LeSean “Shady” McCoy were nowhere to be found. Yes, while it was clear that none of those players were supposed to play much, it felt like they didn’t play at all. Now I know that … Continue reading
