Bradford’s status for game on Thanksgiving ‘up in the air’

The Philadelphia Eagles were without quarterback Sam Bradford in their last game, and fans probably want to avoid Round 2 of Mark Sanchez behind center.

Not so fast, USC: Eagles Chip Kelly buys Philly-area home

It looks like Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly might be staying in the “city of brotherly love” after all. Rumors have swirled connecting Kelly to the open USC football job, but his recent purchase might put those rumors to rest. Kelly just purchased a home for $1.15 million in Haddonfield, New Jersey. The quiet Philadelphia suburb just across the state border is not far...

Mark Sanchez blows off argument with Darren Sproles

Mark Sanchez did his best to downplay an on-field confrontation with Darren Sproles following the Philadelphia Eagles’ 45-17 thumping by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Sanchez and Sproles appeared to have a communication breakdown on an attempted screen pass that ultimately was intercepted by Bucs linebacker Lavonte David and returned 20 yards for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter...

Philadelphia Eagles: Takeaways from loss to Buccaneers

The Philadelphia Eagles’ 45-17 loss at home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was difficult to watch yet oddly satisfying in confirming questions that required a larger sample size: Mark Sanchez: Sanchez was serviceable last season. He posted a 4-4 record after Nick Foles went out with injury. The problem was loose throws and turnovers. Sanchez threw 11 interceptions last season and...

Eagles lay colossal egg, Tampa Bay turns it into omelette, 45-17…

The Tampa Bay Bucs (5-5) behind rookie QB Jameis Winston and an aggressive defense rolled over the Philadelphia Eagles (4-6) at home like General Sherman plowing through Atlanta…or ISIS paying a visit to a Christian prayer meeting. Sorry for the cruel imagery, but yeah, it was that kind of devastating loss for the Birds and their fans. Beaten like a drum at the point of attack...

Eagles QB position pointing to bad outcome: 'The Sam Bradford experiment is not working'

Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly brought in Sam Bradford during the offseason because he felt the signal caller had the skill set to run his uptempo offense; however, with more than half of the season in the rear view mirror, right not the experiment looks like a failure.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Philadelphia Eagles: 2015 Week 11 NFL Pick

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (4-5) The Eagles are only favored by 6 points here over the Buccaneers this week, after being favored by 8 points in the early line last week. I think that’s too low, as the Eagles rank 7th in rate of moving the chains differential, while the Buccaneers rank 26th in rate of moving the chains.

Early Birds gameday Livefyre show—the Bucs stop here…

Sam Bradford (concussion, shoulder) and Ryan Mathews (concussion, groin) have been ruled out for the Eagles, and safety/ST Jerome Couplin (shoulder) has been put on Injured...

Philadelphia Eagles: Darren Sproles is not happy

Darren Sproles is known as the ultimate “factor”back: a player whose impact is not just seen through the traditional work horse carries of a running back. Sproles diminutive size has served as an asset in his shifty open field ability and he has carved out an 11 year career as a player who has been a has to get his mix of touches: carries, receptions, and returns. But what happens...

How In The World Did Eagles WR Jordan Matthews Survive This Hit?

Getting hit is part of the game of football. If you play you are going to hit. It happens. The longer you play, the better the chances are you will get laid out at least once or twice as well (some positions more so than others of course). Sometimes guys get up from hits like that; sometimes they do not. Last Sunday Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews took just such...
