Watching the Eaglets Grow

After a long, tortuous off-season filled with owner lockouts and labor issues, football is officially back!  I know that training camps have been in full swing for almost two weeks now, but the first preseason game is what gets the juices flowing for me and what truly signifies the dawn of a new NFL season. […]

Idea for a new podcast

Due to the Eagles unique ability to crap the bed and ruin what was otherwise a glorious weekend, I have come up with a new, yet familiar, idea for a podcast.  I am thinking about calling it, “PhilliesFanCast” with the tagline, “Hey, we at least have one winner in town!”  Any interest?

Westbrook out, Curtis in vs Redskins

According to a VERY well-informed source within the Eagles organization, RB Brian Westbrook is still having significant pain when trying to cut side-to-side, and will not dress for the Eagles game this Sunday against the hated Redskins.  But, according to the same source, WR Kevin Curtis should be available to see his first game action […]

Westbrook, Sheppard report on time

That huge gust of wind coming out of the Greater Philadelphia area yesterday evening was a “Eagles Nation Collective Sigh of Relief” as Bryan Westbrook and Lito Sheppard reported to Training Camp yesterday on time. Westbrook held court for about 15 minutes with reporters upon his arrival, reiterating that his newly hired agent is working […]

A great day to be an Eagles fan

First, we were treated with the news that Michael Strahan has decided to retire.  Good riddance.  If I had to ensure one more season of the “Jon Runyan – Michael Strahan” running feud nonsense, I was probably going to have to climb to the top of a tower with a high-powered rifle and…..wait, where was […]

Mega-trade in the works?

There is a nasty little rumor circulating that the Philadelphia Eagles and the Cincinnati Bengals have “agreed in principle” on a trade that would see the Eagles send disgruntled CB Lito Sheppard and one of their first round draft picks in next year’s draft to the Bengals for their equally disgruntled WR Chad Johnson. Although […]

Wrap-up of Eagles Draft

The 2008 NFL Draft is in the books, and as usual the performance of the Philadelphia Eagles brain trust is being hotly contested. The prevailing opinion going into this draft was that the Eagles needed to trade up and make a splash in order to obtain a bona fide difference maker who could help this […]

Will the Eagles be active on Day 2?

The Philadelphia Eagles currently have 9 picks in Day 2 of the NFL Draft, with the first being #80 overall in the 3rd round. The Eagles were certainly active on Day 1, making a total of three trades that netted them additional picks in this year’s draft as well as an additional 1st round pick […]

Eagles active on Draft Day

The Philadelphia Eagles traded their 1st round pick (19th overall) to the Carolina Panthers for their 2nd and 4th round picks in this year’s draft as well as the Panthers 1st round pick in next year’s draft. My opinion – I think that once the two offensive tackles went at 14 and 15, there were […]

2008 NFL Schedule has been released

The NFL has released the full schedule for the upcoming 2008 season. At first glance, the Eagles schedule looks full of some good opportunities to shine in the national spotlight. We have two Monday night games, two Sunday night games, and a home game against the Arizona Cardinals on Thanksgiving night! Battle lines have already […]
