The Eagles went from being able to wrap up a second straight NFC East crown at home to three weeks later being locked out of the postseason fun. The Eagles won 10 games, but will have nothing more to show for it. It never should have come to this.
It’s never too early to start thinking about the fantasy football playoffs.
Some of the best NFL players have something more: a big mouth. Here are 5 NFL loudmouths who back up their words on the field.
This guilt-by-association narrative surrounding DeSean Jackson is ridiculous.
Jackson reportedly had ties to gang members, which concerned the team’s front office.
Jerry Rice has fresh bragging rights on Deion Sanders nearly a decade after both players retired from the NFL.
A last-second field goal by Shayne Graham brought an end to the first season of the Chip Kelly era as the Saints left Philadelphia with a 26-24 victory in the NFC Wild Card playoff. The time for season-long evaluations will come over the coming week, but for now let’s take a quick look at how the Eagles performed in this game.
Once the Eagles shift into high gear and run their up-tempo, no huddle offense, they put a defense on its heels, both from a fatigue and assignment standpoint.
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has endured quite a ride in his rookie campaign.
Here are a list of players you should target and a list of players you can dump.
There are a large number of high-profile players who, due to injuries or poor performance, disappointed last season. Here are 10 who are poised to return to form this year.
The Philadelphia Eagles placed the franchise tag on Jackson on Thursday, assuring the two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver at least $9.4 million next season if he signs the tender.
With a projected $25 million in cap space, the Bears will have plenty of money to upgrade at key positions — like wide receiver.
The 2012 free-agent class of wide receiver is about as deep as it gets. New general manager Phil Emery will have his work cut out for him once free agency begins March 13.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk joined The McNeil and Speigel Show today to break down the NFL.
The Bears aren’t who I thought they were. I drastically underestimated both coaches and players. I feel shame.
The Bears mixed coverages and looks to confuse Michael Vick, but the biggest change was how physical the cornerbacks were allowed to be.
Leading charge for the Eagles is the versatile Michael Vick, who’s legs are just as much a threat as his arms. Add to that mix an explosive group of wide receivers and a running back rushing for over five yards per carry, and the Bears have a tantalizing challenge.
Another big game for the Bears as they travel to take on Philadelphia tonight. If the Bears can find a way to win, they put themselves in a great spot to continue the playoff race. A loss with a rested Detroit coming in next week makes things more difficult. Here are the matchups I’m looking at:
Concussions, injuries and illegal hits seemed to be the focus during this NFL season. Penalties for unnecessary roughness rose from 2009 to 2010 as a result. With the NFL playoffs kicking off Saturday, these kinds of calls will be put to the test throughout the postseason.
