Eagles Have Worked Tirelessly to Eliminate Random Nature of Turnovers

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles’ plus-12 turnover ratio is lapping the rest of the NFL during the team’s 6-0 start. No. 2 in the all-important statistic are Baltimore and Minnesota, teams that are each plus-4. Because there is a bit of randomness to turnovers, it’s the one statistic that can’t be counted on to continue at

Miles Sanders Wants a Second Contract with Eagles

PHILADELPHIA – Before the 2022 season began it was tough envisioning Miles Sanders earning a second contract with the Eagles. Sanders had proven to be a good player through his first three NFL seasons but one who fell short of unrealistic expectations after a rookie season that was arguably his best. The thought was that

‘No Feelings’ for Eagles when looking to improve on 6-0

PHILADELPHIA – What’s the mark of a really good football team? How about nitpicking? The Eagles are entering their bye week at 6-0, the NFL’s only unbeaten team, and they are scheduled out of it with this murderer’s row at quarterback: Mitchell Trubisky, Davis Mills, and Taylor Heinicke. The 2022 season is quickly becoming one

Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is Fitting in and Standing Out

PHILADELPHIA – It was so bright on that national stage for Chauncey Gardner-Johnson on Sunday night that the Eagles’ safety had to wear shades. After a two-interception night in an emphatic 26-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys, CGJ was the first Eagles player to the podium after his team reached 6-0 for just the third

Sunday night crew previews Eagles-Cowboys

PHILADELPHIA – When Carrie Underwood starts belting out the theme for the NFL’s prime-time showcase this week, you can bet Philadelphia truly will have been waiting all day for Sunday night. The unbeaten Eagles (5-0) host the 4-1 Dallas Cowboys on “Sunday Night Football”  and the winner will have a leg up on the NFC

Edge rushers revolt at NFL’s over-protection of QBs

PHILADELPHIA – Haason Reddick is getting $15 million a season to go sack the quarterback for the Eagles. The fine print to that reality, however, is a constantly evolving Snapchat-like decree that may change on a dime or even disappear for a new directive depending on the social media angst that is driving NFL reaction

Eagles seem to know they got too complacent on offense

GLENDALE, Ariz. – For the second consecutive day, a high-profile part of the Eagles’ offensive machine seemed to get a bit defensive when pointed to the redundancy of outside screens to combat the blitz-happy Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. After the 20-17 victory it was quarterback Jalen Hurts who deflected away from an idea that worked

Haason Reddick continues historic defensive run

A historic defensive run for the Eagles continued Wednesday when edge rusher Haason Reddick was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his dominant two-strip sack, two fumble recovery performance during Philadelphia’s 29-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Zach Ertz recounts difficult final months with Eagles

Zach Ertz still loves Philadelphia, so much so that his charitable foundation still makes the city a priority, but the veteran tight end admitted the final 18 months of his football life with the Eagles weren’t easy. Speaking with reporters in advance of Sunday’s matchup between the 4-0 Eagles and the 2-2 Arizona Cardinals, Ertz

Inside the career day of Miles Sanders

PHILADELPHIA – Miles Sanders was the first Eagles player led to the postgame interview room, still sporting his drenched uniform after a career day in difficult conditions. “You hear that party going on in there?” Sanders smiled while referencing the music booming and voices celebrating a 29-21 win over Doug Pederson and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Trey Sermon ready for first opportunity with the Eagles

PHILADELPHIA – Trey Sermon – Taking flyers on some young, talented prospects from the 2021 draft who didn’t necessarily hit the ground running in their original cities was a bit of a theme for Howie Roseman late in the summer. First, it was quarterback Ian Book, a fourth-round pick of New Orleans in 2021 at

How will the Eagles replace Avonte Maddox against Jags?

PHILADELPHIA – Nick Sirianni turned up to his Friday press conference, adorned in a “Turnover T-Shirt,” the brainchild of the defensive coaching staff in an effort to express how important the double-positive is when it comes to winning football games. The version Sirianni had on was Avonte Maddox sinking into zone coverage and leaping in

Doug Pederson set to return to Philadelphia relaxed and ready

PHILADELPHIA – Andy Reid got a standing ovation, so why not Doug Pederson? The only Super Bowl-winning coach in Eagles history is returning to Philadelphia on Sunday as the new mentor of the Jacksonville Jaguars and Pederson admits he’s not quite sure what to expect. Pederson, though, did remember coming back as the quarterbacks coach

Gannon on Doug Pederson’s Play-Calling: ‘He doesn’t have a lot of tendencies’

PHILADELPHIA – Jonathan Gannon was on the wrong side of the 2018 NFC Championship Game when Doug Pederson’s Philadelphia Eagles routed the favored Minnesota Vikings, 38-7,  en route to winning Super Bowl LII. Then an assistant defensive backs coach with the Vikings, Gannon earned a healthy respect for Pederson’s play-calling ability. “I have a very

Same-old story for Carson Wentz

LANDOVER, Md. – Carson Wentz never handed the baton to Jalen Hurts in Philadelphia. The one-time face of the Eagles’ franchise was forced to make the hand-off and recede to the background while a perceived placeholder took over in the death throes of the Doug Pederson era. On Sunday, in the shadow of the nation’s

Nick Sirianni Counting on Veteran Leadership to Avoid Traps

PHILADELPHIA – It was silly but some were calling for Nick Sirianni’s job after a 2-5 start last season. Win No. 2 in 2022, a dominating performance on Monday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings, has many of the same hot-take artists trumpeting Sirianni for NFL Coach of the Year.

Hidden Arryn Siposs hustle pays off against Vikings

PHILADELPHIA – Ostensibly the Eagles dominated the Minnesota Vikings during a 24-7 win on Monday night but like any NFL game there were a handful of moments that could have tilted things dramatically. Irv Smith’s drop late in the second quarter turned a potential 63-yard touchdown and a manageable 21-14 Vikings deficit at the half

‘Revenge’ is a dish best served with friends for Jalen Reagor

PHILADELPHIA – Jalen Reagor still texts every day with a number of his former Eagles teammates like DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, and Miles Sanders. It’s a group text among friends and football isn’t part of the equation nor is trash-talking. It’s just a bunch of guys who enjoyed each other’s company before Reagor was sent
