EAGLES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Antonio Brown was told by refs to change cleats at halftime

What is happening with the Philadelphia Eagles?

Having low expectations for the Philadelphia Eagles was understandable. Thin offensive line; new head coach, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach, and…quarterback; new running back rotation; same receivers that led the league in drops the year before; minimal adjustments to defensive personnel other than positioning. It’s also understandable to look...

Philadelphia Eagles are playoff contenders with Carson Wentz

When the Philadelphia Eagles traded quarterback Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings for a first-round pick, the move was viewed as the Eagles throwing in the towel on the 2016 season. The expectation after trading Bradford was for the team to rebuild with second overall pick Carson Wentz at quarterback. But that hasn’t been the reality in Philly, as the Eagles have instead been one...

It's rough for both franchises, but especially for Philadelphia, the surprise team of 2016...

Impressive Carson Wentz has Eagles off to 3-0 start

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Carson Wentz put his athleticism, precision passing and quick decision-making on display all on one play. The rookie quarterback dropped back on third-and-8, saw his first read covered, sidestepped a rusher, stepped up in the pocket, started to scramble, pump-faked, rolled to his right, stopped short of the line of scrimmage and floated a perfect pass down the...

Philadelphia Eagles: Week three fantasy outlook

Teams with rookie quarterbacks are often best avoided when it comes to fantasy. However, Carson Wentz proved through two games that he’s capable of making accurate and deep throws. The bigger problem with using the Eagles in fantasy is the other part of the passing equation. The Eagles trounced the league in drops last year (37) with six more than the next highest offender. So...
