Nick Sirianni on Jonathan Gannon: ‘I just think he’s a special coach’

PHILADELPHIA – Nick Sirianni is always very aware of what’s being said about his team. At times the Eagles’ head coach likes to pretend that’s not the case but every now and again he slips. One such moment came after the Eagles’ 17-16 win in Indianapolis during his contractually-obligated day-after radio appearance on 94.1 WIP.

Eagles pass rush getting the job done in critical situations

A year ago, with Haasan Reddick still in Carolina and Brandon Graham out with a ruptured Achilles tendon, the Eagles’ pass rush was pretty bad. Their 29 sacks were the second-fewest in the NFL and equaled the fewest by an Eagles defense since the disco era, when Dick Vermeil’s first team (1976) got to the

The Eagles have hired former Colts offensive coordinator Marcus Brady as a consultant, according to a league source. ESPN’s Tim McManus and Stephen Holder were the first to report on Philadelphia bringing in Brady, who worked with Eagles coach Nick Sirianni for three seasons in Indianapolis, first as the assistant quarterbacks coach and then QB

Jalen Hurts ‘delivers’ for Eagles in win over the Colts

INDIANAPOLIS – To the outside world, Nick Sirianni tried to downplay his return to Indianapolis but it wasn’t exactly a secret around the NovaCare Complex how badly the Eagles’ head coach wanted this one. If you needed evidence of that it came pouring out after Jalen Hurts found the end zone with just 80 seconds

The Eagles survive the Colts, 17-16, on the legs of Jalen Hurts

Brandon Graham was allowed to hit the quarterback this time. Nick Sirianni allowed Jalen Hurts to put the Eagles on his back, and then Sirianni allowed himself to celebrate with what seemed like every Eagles’ fan at Lucas Oil Stadium on his return to Indianapolis with a squeaky 17-16 Eagles’ victory over the Colts on

Taking a closer look at the Eagles’ loss to Washington

I didn’t have Washington in my Eagles’-first-loss pool. While I suspected it would be a team that would be able to take advantage of their run-defense shortcomings as the Commanders did, my money was on a more explosive ground game such as Tennessee’s with Derrick Henry or the Giants with Saquon Barkley. Even after racking

Eagles make another splash at DT with Ndamukong Suh

PHILADELPHIA – The one narrative that has been solidified around the NovaCare Complex over the past two days is that Howie Roseman is going down swinging. The Eagles’ GM added his second big-name defensive tackle in two days on Thursday by signing Ndamukong Suh to a one-year deal. Really, it’s an eight games plus the

Eagles bring in Linval Joseph; place Dallas Goedert and Marlon Tuipulotu on IR

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles made a flurry of roster moves Wednesday with the headliners being the addition of veteran nose tackle Linval Joseph and the move of Dallas Goedert to injured reserve, something that guarantees the star tight end will miss the next four games. Joseph, 34, was once one of the better nose tackles

Eagles Lose Dallas Goedert for Multiple Weeks

PHILADELPHIA – And you thought a confounding 32-21 setback to the Washington Commanders was bad. The Eagles’ first loss of the season was far more costly than a blemish in the standings. Philadelphia is going to lose star tight end Dallas Goedert for an extended period of time with a shoulder injury, according to the

Five years ago, Carson Wentz was the favorite to win the league MVP award before tearing his ACL in the 13th game of the season. Eight games into this season, the Eagles are 8-0 heading into Monday night’s game against the Washington Commanders, and their quarterback, Jalen Hurts, is one of the frontrunners in this

Rest vs. Rust? Scheduling quirk adds uncertainty to 8-0 Eagles

PHILADELPHIA – When the Eagles take the field Monday night against the Washington Commanders, it will be just the third time in 29 days that the NFL’s only unbeaten team will be tested. More so, the two games the Eagles have already played over that span — wins against Pittsburgh and Houston — were just

Nothing to see with Nakobe Dean’s playing time

PHILADELPHIA – Nakobe Dean isn’t playing right now and the reason for that should be obvious but the rookie linebacker’s high-profile college career is complicating matters for some fans. Not for the Eagles’ coaching staff, however, which is basking in the play of veterans T.J. Edwards and Kyzir White while also enjoying the luxury of

PHILADELPHIA – Week 1 without Jordan Davis didn’t go as smoothly as hoped but the Eagles persevered to top a bad Houston Texans team and move to 8-0. Without the big man in the middle, however, the Philadelphia defense allowed 168 yards rushing, including 139 to impressive rookie Dameon Pierce. As good as Pierce has

The Eagles are 8-0, but that doesn’t mean they’re perfect. If you look hard enough you can find a few pimples on the face of their first-half play, including Thursday night’s 29-17 win over the Houston Texans. You can start with their run defense, which gave up 168 yards to rookie Dameon Pierce and the

Afterthought tuns into perseverance as Eagles outlast Texans to reach 8-0

HOUSTON – An afterthought turned to perseverance as the Eagles outlasted a competitive Houston Texans team, 29-17, on Thursday night to reach 8-0 for the first time in its nearly 90 years of franchise history. What greeted Philadelphia in South Texas wasn’t a road apple but the upset-minded Texans (1-6-1) who were competitive into the
