Eagles’ Shane Steichen is in demand

PHILADELPHIA – While the haves in the NFL are preparing for the playoffs, many of the have-nots are gearing up for hiring season, and Eagles offensive coordinator Shane Steichen is proving to be one of the more popular names. Of the five openings around the league, Steichen, the play-caller for Philadelphia’s third-ranked offense, has been

A hurting Jalen Hurts to the rescue

PHILADELPHIA – Jalen Hurts came to the Eagles’ rescue in a 22-16 win over the junior varsity of the New York Giants but what cost? Philadelphia’s QB1 fight through significant soreness because the Eagles were unable to win without him in the two previous weeks. With the MVP candidate, Philadelphia is now 14-1. Without Hurts,

Eagles list Jalen Hurts as questionable

PHILADELPHIA – Jalen Hurts is “trending in the right direction” when it comes to a potential return from a sprained throwing shoulder and the MVP candidate has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants. Hurts has missed the past two games — both losses — for the 13-3 Eagles, who

Who needs to blitz? Eagles making sack history with a four-man rush

The NFL has officially been keeping track of quarterback sacks since 1982. During that time, just three teams have racked up more than the 68 the Eagles take into Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Giants at the Linc: the ’84 Bears (72), the ’89 Vikings (71), and the ’87 Bears (70). That they have done

Eagles’ Haason Reddick forces way into DPOTY conversation

PHILADELPHIA – The NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year award is likely headed to Nick Bosa but that hasn’t stopped the Eagles’ Haason Reddick from trying to break into the conversation. The star pass-rusher of a defensive unit pushing the NFL record, Reddick has 16 sacks on the season and an NFL-leading five forced fumbles.

Attrition presses pause on Eagles

PHILADELPHIA – I’ll always consider myself a reporter first but over the years the sojourn to talking head has manifested itself and that move requires participation in certain sports-talk tropes that are both mind-numbing and soul-crushing for those of us trying to elevate the medium. One of the biggest hat tips to the least common

Eagles are running out of mulligans after loss to Saints

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles have used all their mulligans and there is one more opportunity to seize the NFC East and the conference’s No. 1 seed, a Week 18 matchup against the playoff-bound New York Giants. What seemed like a foregone conclusion before Jalen Hurts’ SC joint sprain in Chicago last month, now is a

Dak, Cowboys made Eagles defense look bad on third down

The Eagles’ four turnovers against the Cowboys on Christmas Eve were the biggest reason they left Jerryland with a 40-34 loss. But the defense’s uncharacteristically poor play on third down was a very close second. Giving up that 52-yard completion to T.Y. Hilton on third-and-30 in the fourth quarter as they were clinging to a

Will he or won’t he?

PHILADELPHIA – There were a lot of words coming out of Nick Sirianni’s mouth at his pre-practice presser on Friday, along with the requisite Larry Kehres nostalgia, but few answers as the Eagles’ coach continues to push the competitive-advantage card as far as possible when it comes to Sunday’s game against New Orleans. Sirianni declined

Lane Johnson will be back for the playoffs, but how effective will he be?

The question isn’t whether Lane Johnson will line up and play for the Eagles in the playoffs. He will. The question is how effective he will be playing with a torn adductor muscle. Johnson, the Eagles’ four-time Pro Bowl right tackle, suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s 40-34 loss to the Cowboys.

It’s status quo with Eagles and Jalen Hurts

PHILADELPHIA – It’s status quo when it comes to Eagles and star quarterback Jalen Hurts. Hurts is dealing with a sprained SC joint in his shoulder and did not take part in a walkthrough practice on Wednesday but Eagles coach Nick Sirianni continues to leave the QB1’s playing status open-ended when it comes to Sunday’s

Eagles facing attrition late in season with Lane Johnson, Avonte Maddox injuries

Far bigger than a loss at Dallas is the attrition that the 13-2 Eagles suffered against the Cowboys on Christmas Eve with two key starters expected out for the rest of the regular season in which Philadelphia still has to either win one of its final two home games against New Orleans and the New

The Eagles tie a bow on a Dallas 40-34 victory with four turnovers

The Eagles will always have fourth-and-26 to remember. On Christmas Eve, they gift-wrapped the Dallas Cowboys a resonating catchphrase that may last a while—third-and-30. It has a ring that will plague the Eagles and their fanbase for the holiday season until they host the New Orleans Saints next Sunday. Long before Miles Sanders put his

Jalen Hurts sprains his throwing shoulder

Back in Week 6, it was Cooper Rush dueling against Jalen Hurts. On Christmas Eve, it’s more than likely going to be Gardner Minshew vs. Dak Prescott. If we are ever going to see Hurts and Prescott during the same game in the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry this season, it’s going to be in the playoffs. That’s
