The Eagles made a big decision on Monday afternoon in parting ways with Super Bowl-winning Head Coach, Doug Pederson. Whether or not that decision was right is irrelevant. What matters now is that the team has to fully commit to the path taken in order to ensure that previous demons no longer haunt the team.

We’re at a lull during the NFL post/off-season in which the teams not in the Super Bowl are going through the motions until the new league year starts. The lull for the Eagles has included countless debates of Wentz vs Foles, which Pederson shut down with the declaration of Wentz being the quarterback, and the […]Read more "Eagles offseason predictions: Volume One"
It’s been a strange year for the Eagles and more specifically their receivers. Having started the year without Alshon Jeffery and then losing Mike Wallace, the unit spent the first half of the year light on depth and production followed suit. But a few weeks, the return of Jordan Matthews and a gamble-like trade later, […]Read more "After a clutch playoff TD, the Golden Tate trade is playing out exactly how Eagles had hoped"
In an incredibly hostile, raucous environment at Soldier Field, it was the Eagles who earned the victory in an ever important win-or-go-home scenario against the Bears.

The Eagles offense has endured quite the rollercoaster this year, but the slot receiver position has been especially turbulent. An injury to Mike Wallace in the opening weeks forced Nelson Agholor outside to the WR2 spot where he flourished in week 2, recording 88 yards against the Buccaneers. After that however, the waters started to […]Read more "Week 17 could be the final audition for Eagles receivers as uncertainty over slot position looms"
The Eagles offense is finally clicking on all cylinders again. For context, their third-down conversion percentage sits at a dismal 40% on the year, but rose to a far more promising 53.8% (including a taking a knee in the fourth quarter) in Monday Night’s win. One of the biggest areas of offensive improvement that have […]Read more "Tate may be stealing the spotlight, but Agholor’s new role is transforming Eagles offense"
