Are the Eagles really a contender ?
Truth be told, maybe it was a good idea signing Vick. The Birds sure are getting a bunch of attention this preseason, and if you look at them on paper, they haven’t been really good since 2004. They show flashes of brilliance, and have periods of good workmanlike pla...

Will Vick help the Eagles?
By far the biggest news of the new NFL season is the signing of Michael Vick by the Philadelphia Eagles. Last Thursday evening, Vick was signed to a two year deal; '09 guaranteed at $1.8 million and an option in '10 that would garner him $5.3 million. There is also $3...

Vick is an eagle
Let's face it Michael Vick is not going to be a starting QB in the upcoming football season. The Philadelphia Eagles need Michael Vick. The back up QB situation in Philly has not been the best in the past few years. Koy Detmer and A.J. Feeley have not impressed me or an...

The Vick-Eagles Marriage Makes Sense
Michael Vick was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles to a 2 year deal yesterday. On the surface this move is surprising. The Eagles were one of 26 teams declaring that they had no interest in Vick. After the headaches they endured from Terrell Owens and their love/hate...

Jim Johnson Dies at the Age of 68
It's a sad day for Eagles fans. Before 2000, the Philadelphia Eagles weren't a scary team. They didn't pose much of a threat and were merely a stepping stone in an opponents' schedule. It only took Jim Johnson a few years to change that. Starting in 2001, the Eagles we...

Westbrook injury could sink Eagles
When I received a short, three-line press release from the Philadelphia Eagles informing me that Brian Westbrook would be undergoing surgery on Friday morning, it struck me that the organization was "depressed." The release seemed to indicate fatigue and decreased ener...

$40 million in cap space - Dawkins + Houshmandzadeh = Philly’s biggest mistake?
Sometimes it’s what you don’t do that defines you. And no matter what they do between now and the NFL draft, what the Philadelphia Eagles haven't done in free agency may haunt them for a long time. I’m talking specifically about two key free agents in T.J. Houshmandza...

Ease up on Andy Reid
I really can't explain the fans of Philadelphia. I can, however, explain the way fans in the city are viewed around the rest of this country. Most places simply don't believe evolution ever made its way to the City of Brotherly Love. Ex-Phillie Todd Jones once wrote:...

Reid and Eagles should pass the ball
Even casual observers of the Philadelphia Eagles know that Andy Reid loves the forward pass. Of course, Reid refuses to admit that to his detractors and himself. So, I'm here to play Dr. Phil to the embattled Eagles mentor. There's nothing wrong with loving the passi...

Reid the fans’ lips: Is it time to shake up the Eagles’ nest?
Sometimes it’s really great when a plan doesn’t come to fruition. Thanks to the Philadelphia Eagles’ dismal performance last Sunday night, you’re about to read why. The yearly Eagles-Giants games are the two weeks every football season where this writer trades in his p...

Eagles go from Election Day to Judgment Day
Political season may be over now, but allow me to invoke one last semi-political comparison: Senator Barack Obama and Donovan McNabb have a lot more in common than just both being from Chicago. This past Tuesday, Obama scored the most monumental victory in the history...

Eagles are now strictly second class in Philly
A 25-year marathon finally crossed the finish line Wednesday night in South Philadelphia. For a quarter of a century, Philly's four major sports teams jockeyed for position, hoping to end the infamous Billy Penn-induced championship drought. For the past decade, the E...

Time to cancel Green’s Akers?
Philadelphia has a reputation for being a very negative sports town. Throwing batteries and booing Santa Claus will give you that stigma, I suppose. This past week, that was put on hold when the Phillies ended the City of Brotherly Love’s quarter-century championship...

November is the Eagles’ chance to become birds of prey
This weekend, I guarantee you that at least one NFL team nicknamed after a bird will come out a winner. OK, so that proposition won't exactly ever appear in Os Davis’ "Odds on the Odd" column, especially considering the Philadelphia Eagles play the Atlanta Falcons on S...

Eagles head back to the nest at square one
As they head into their bye, the Philadelphia Eagles have evened their record at 3-3. That’s the good news. The fourth quarter against San Francisco last weekend was a case study of what’s wrong with the Eagles. On one hand, the defense played better in that fourth q...

Parity is Philly’s best friend
A week ago, it seemed like the Philadelphia Eagles were losing the city they have dominated for the past decade. The Birds were coming off a bad loss at home to division rival Washington, falling to 2-3 and looking up at three potential playoff teams in the always toug...

All quiet on the Westbrook front
With apologies to the fantastic novel and Academy Award-winning movie of the same name, the Philadelphia Eagles' offense closely resembles the title of this article in both personnel and resemblance to a war of attrition. Last week, in my first-quarter report card, I w...
