    Here's the deal with the Philadelphia Eagles' wide receivers: Aside from injury, DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and rookie Damaris Johnson, who just might be the 2012 edition of the 2008 Jackson, are locks to be on the 53-man......
  • Eagles-Ravens pregame thoughts

  • Eagles looking to bring back Gilyard

     
    Mardy Gilyard is on his way to Philadelphia for sure. Whether the unemployed wide receiver, who was magnificent in training camp with the Eagles this summer before being cut, will re-sign is uncertain. But Gilyard seems enthused. Here's what he......
  • Film breakdown: Things that have previously worked against the Cowboys probably won't work this year

  • Film breakdown: Nick Foles' pocket presence

     
    At the 2012 NFL Combine, Nick Foles ran a 5.14 second 40 yard dash. Of the 14 quarterbacks that participated in that drill, Foles finished dead last. Yesterday against the Buccaneers, we saw Foles' complete lack of speed on his......
  • 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.......
  • Eagles minicamp practice notes: June 6, 2013

     
    I'm a little late with my notes this time around, so let's just get right to it: • Nick Foles during OTAs and minicamp this year >>> Nick Foles in training camp last year. The natural, intangible progressions from a......
  • Yes, Nick Foles had a good rookie season

     
    In the last few years, a handful of rookie QBs have done extraordinary things, and the bar for comparative purposes has been raised. In 2011, Cam Newton took the league by storm, breaking records both for rookie passing yards (4,051)......
  • Eagles training camp preview: Wide Receiver

     
    The WR camp competition is going to be a very interesting one this year, as the Eagles have a group of receivers in a variety of shapes, sizes, and skill sets. For an audio version, my buddy Tommy Lawlor and......
  • McCoy out sick; Graham still on hold

     
    Running back LeSean McCoy is out sick, defensive end Brandon Graham and linebacker Akeem Jordan still are on hold and tight end Brent Celek has a hip injury that could limit him this week. Everything and everyone else were operating......
  • Sure would be nice for Young to get some help tonight

     
    With quarterback Vince young making his first start as an Eagle tonight, it sure would be nice for him to get some help from the sideline (play-calling that involves a healthy dose of LeSean McCoy) and wide receiver Riley Cooper,......
