Eagles need help at wide receiver, but it’s not Dez Bryant

Sigh. Never in a million years would I expect so many Philadelphia Eagles fans to be fine with the idea of signing Dez Bryant. But I understand what many of them are thinking. In 2017, it looked like the Eagles had finally removed themselves from the days of wide receiver woes with a trio of Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, and Torrey Smith, plus up-and-coming rookies in Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson. Fast forward to 2018. … Continue reading

Nick Foles doesn’t have to be elite for Eagles to win

If there’s one thing we know about Nick Foles, it’s that he’s consistently inconsistent. Sure, he had brilliant performances against the Vikings and Patriots in the playoffs last year, but inconsistency has ravaged his entire career, building the hopes up of fans just enough to be disappointed the next time he doesn’t tear it up. Thursday’s performance against the Falcons shouldn’t have surprised anyone. Foles finished the game 19 of 34 for a measly 117 … Continue reading

The preseason has finally come to an end. Man, those last two games were painful. Luckily, talking about who will make the 53-man roster is much more fun. Here’s my final prediction for the Eagles main roster ahead of Saturday’s 4 p.m. deadline to cut down to 53 players. If you’d like to compare, my roster prediction from August 22 can be viewed here.

Predicting the 2018 Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster—Version 1

What better way to celebrate my return to the world of Philadelphia Eagles blogging with a 53-man roster prediction? It’s been since 2016 that I did a roster prediction, and it’s definitely one of the most fun things to do as a fan/writer. Alright, whenever I read these articles I skip right over the introduction, so I’m just going to jump into the predictions. Quarterback In: Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, Nate Sudfeld Out: Joe Callahan, … Continue reading

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 53-man roster predictions: Version 2.0

It’s been three months since I made my last Eagles roster prediction, so it’s about time I updated it. They’re more than halfway through the preseason with their fourth game coming up in a couple days. Here is a position-by-position breakdown of who I think will make the team and who won’t: Quarterback In: Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel, Carson Wentz Out: McLeod Bethel-Thompson This is the same at last time and it’ll always remain this way, … Continue reading

Philadelphia Eagles 53-man roster prediction: Version 1.0

Predicting who is going to make an NFL team’s roster in May is stupid right? Of course it is. But that doesn’t mean it’s not fun. A whole lot is going to change between now and September when the Eagles take the field against the Browns in Week 1, but here’s my initial roster prediction based on what I think will happen: Quarterback In: Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel, Carson Wentz Out: McLeod Bethel-Thompson Even though … Continue reading

Analyzing Eagles’ trade to No. 2 overall: Was it worth it?

The Philadelphia Eagles moved up in the first round for the second time this offseason, trading with the Cleveland Browns to get the No. 2 overall pick in the draft. This nearly confirms they’ll be taking whichever quarterback, Carson Wentz or Jared Goff, that the Rams do not take. Was this trade worth it? In my opinion, not at all, but I’ve seen a lot of people make fair arguments as to how it could … Continue reading

Why the Eagles shouldn’t draft any running back in the first round

One of the most debated players among Eagles fans for who they should draft with the No. 8 pick is Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliot. I have had conflicted thoughts about this because, as I’ve mentioned before, I think Elliot is an extremely talented player. I think he could easily be the Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016 and have multiple 1,000-yard rushing seasons, as well as make an impact through the air … 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
