  • Opposing defenses are preying on the Eagles' careless ball security, and then laughing about it

     
    After Thursday night's debacle against the Bengals at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles now have 35 fumbles on the season. They have lost 21 of them. That leads the NFL. The next closest team in terms of fumbles lost is......
  • Holes to fill this offseason: Eagles defense

     
    DEFENSE (We'll be assuming here that the Eagles switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4 scheme): DE: Fletcher Cox, Cedric Thornton, and Cullen Jenkins should all make seamless transitions from 4-3 DT to 3-4 DE. Added depth would be nice,......
  • Monday Morning Quarterback: Defense will have to carry Eagles the rest of the way

  • Eagles minicamp practice notes: June 5, 2013

     
    • In case you missed it, here's a pop quiz I prepared for some Eagles defenders. I was curious if they could identify the eligible receivers in the "Swinging Gate" formation. • Mychal Kendricks had himself a very nice day.......
  • First depth chart reveals little

     
    Chip Kelly's admission last week that his secret Eagles' depth chart is "written in sand" was hardly a revelation. All 31 other head coaches will tell you the same thing at this point. But when their first "unofficial depth chart"......
