We know that Howie Roseman loves to make late summer moves, but unforeseen injuries and unexpected position battles have caused more of a stir than usual. Here are my predictions as to how that shapes the current depth chart and the final roster. […]Read more "How does the Eagles Depth Chart look heading into preseason week 3?"
The Philadelphia Eagles finally took to the field after a long summer without football. The long-awaited return to the gridiron did not go without a hitch. In fact, overall, it was a pretty messy game for the boys in midnight green. Still, the whole purpose of the preseason is to separate the pretenders from the […]Read more "How does the Eagles depth chart look after preseason opener?"

Generally, when video game announcements hit the newsstands, it registers as hardly more than a blip in the sporting world. Madden rankings have become the exception.

The Philadelphia Eagles welcome the Houston Texans this Sunday with their season on the line in what should be a showcase of formidable defensive lines and high flying offences.

The Eagles red zone defense has been strong for quite some time. In 2017, the defense allowed an opponent to score points on just 50% of their journeys inside the 20.

The dominance started right out […]Read more "Eagles defense dominate in the red zone but will face their toughest challenge yet in week 4"
The Eagles defense has endured plenty of criticism this week and with relatively good reason. Ryan Fitzpatrick moved the chains with ease in Sunday’s loss to Tampa Bay, picking apart a secondary that insisted on giving lethal wideouts an 8-10 yard cushion on each and every play. Andrew Luck and the Colts come to town […]Read more "Eagles defense could be on the verge of a breakout or a breakdown"
Ryan Fitzpatrick has had a scintillating start to the 2018 season. The 14-year veteran has thrown for over 400 yards and 4 touchdowns in back-to-back weeks against two very different types of defense. By ripping the Eagles to shreds however, he may have unearthed an Achilles heel that many assumed had been long forgotten. Through […]Read more "Eagles Film Room: Did Ryan Fitzpatrick highlight an Achilles heel in the Jim Schwartz defense?"
