Analyzing Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster after final cuts

Now that almost everyone has cleared waivers and practice squads have been formed, it seems like the Eagles’ roster is essentially what it’s going to be going into Week 1. As always there were some surprises, but nothing earth-shattering or even that surprising other than the trade that sent Sam Bradford to the Vikings just a few days before the season started. Here I’ll break down each position group and what I thought about who … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles 2015 Season Recap: Special Teams

This is part 4 in a four-part series. Parts 1, 2 and 3 can be found here, here and here, respectively. The Eagles boasted the number one special teams unit in the NFL in 2014, in large part thanks to Dave Fipp, their incredible special teams coach that the team grabbed from the Miami Dolphins in 2013, where he was equally successful. Last year they had seven touchdowns on special teams, an incredible number, and … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles 2015 Season Recap: Defense

This is part 3 of a four-part series. Parts 1 and 2 can be found here and here, respectively. Oh, how the Eagles defense was bad. It was so bad at times that below average teams were literally running and passing all over them. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a 200-yard rusher and five passing touchdowns in the same game, which is just insane to consider. Their defense gave up 30+ points in five of … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles 2015 Season Recap: Offense

This is part 2 in a four-part series. Part one can be found here. The Eagles had such a prolific offense in 2013 and 2014 that it was very hard to swallow the disaster that appeared in front of fans for most of the 2015 season. It started with the very first drive when DeMarco Murray was blasted for multiple negative yard gains on zone stretch plays that were unsuccessful for almost 99% of the … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles 2015 Season Recap: Overall

This is part 1 in a four-part series. Nobody needs to tell you that the 2015 Eagles were a disappointment. That is utter and complete fact. The offense that once was tearing up defenses with no solution was left stagnant and inconsistent too often The defense continued to be a liability regardless of how long it was on the field. And the special teams, which was the best unit in the league in 2014, fell back … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles fired Chip Kelly prematurely

Jeffery Lurie really isn’t messing around anymore. The guy who let Andy Reid wallow around as the Eagles’ head coach and general manager for over a decade made headlines all over the nation when he decided to fire Chip Kelly from his position as the Eagles’ head coach and “general manager”. On a Tuesday night. Before Week 17. After the players had all gone home. The move was surprising to many, but mostly because of … Continue reading

General rants and thoughts on Eagles loss to Cardinals

The Philadelphia Eagles’ loss to the Cardinals last night was a tough one, and it really does prove that the Eagles can’t consistently hang in there with the top teams in the league. But, the season is not over yet, and thus there is hope. Hope is what holds together Eagles Nation, no matter how negative many of them are. It’s hope that they may just sneak into the playoffs and do well that keeps … Continue reading

Ranking the top 10 best and worst players on Eagles through 2014 PFF grades

Ever since I subscribed to the premium stats section of Pro Football Focus, I have been obsessed with looking at all the data they have and the player ratings. While some of the ratings are obviously arguable and should be taken with a grain of salt, it brings an interesting perspective to how good or bad some players actually are. Before the season starts, here’s a look at the top 10 best and worst players currently … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster prediction: Version 3.0

My second version of my Eagles 53-man roster prediction came just before the start of the preseason, but now that we’ve seen some real game action, it’s time to update it. They made their first round of cuts, which didn’t feature anyone particularly surprising, but we could be in store for a couple surprise cuts next time around. Here’s my updated prediction: Quarterback Keep: Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow Cut: Matt Barkley The more … Continue reading
