  • By the numbers: a guess at Eagles' roster puzzle

     
    With final roster cuts looming this week, it's a good bet that Eagles coach Chip Kelly and his staff at least have a good idea already of how they will construct the roster. Here's one guess at the projected 53-player......
  • Eagles minicamp practice notes: June 4, 2013

     
    • Nick Foles had a good day. Three passes stood out. He threw a 50 yard bomb to Jeremy Maclin, who tracked it nicely and made the play, even with decent coverage from Cary Williams. Foles also slung a ball......
  • Eagles OTA practice notes

     
    • If you're an X's and O's buff, I would strongly suggest you watch the following two videos, which are done extraordinarily well by Charles Fischer of FishDuck.com. They detail Oregon's two basic running plays/formations, the inside zone read and.....
  • Eagles jersey buyers guide!

     
    The Eagles have published their roster, updated with their free agent acquisitions, complete with what jersey numbers each player will be wearing. Since I always advise against purchasing a rookie's jersey (see Jarrett, Jaiquawn), now seems like an...
  • Eagles OTA practice notes, May 28th, 2013

     
    I have a lot of notes today, so let's just skip any sort of intro and get right to it. • The Eagles' practice bubble here at the NovaCare Complex is a nice facility, but football games are played in......

    Back in November, we took a look at King Dunlap's ferociousness in the run game. First we laughed, then we cried. In re-watching some film this past week, I happened to come across another King gem against the Falcons. King......
  • An early look at the Eagles' depth

     
    In Week 15 last season against the Bengals, the Eagles' starting lineup looked like this: The Eagles were missing their starting QB, their starting RB, a starting WR, their starting TE, and 80% of their starting offensive line. Injuries are......
  • Eagles OTA practice notes, May 31st, 2013

     
    Let's just get right to it: • The Eagles are running their offense almost exclusively out of the shotgun. I'm told that they ran a few plays from under center during Tuesday's practice, but I must have missed that. Personally,......
  • Film breakdown: Things that have previously worked against the Cowboys probably won't work this year

     
    The last two years, the Eagles have been killing the Cowboys with a fairly basic counter trap play. Here's the play in the form of X's and O's: Here's how it works against a 3-4 set that the Cowboys run:......
  • Film breakdown: Nick Foles' pocket presence

     
    At the 2012 NFL Combine, Nick Foles ran a 5.14 second 40 yard dash. Of the 14 quarterbacks that participated in that drill, Foles finished dead last. Yesterday against the Buccaneers, we saw Foles' complete lack of speed on his......
  • Eagles minicamp practice notes: June 5, 2013

     
    • In case you missed it, here's a pop quiz I prepared for some Eagles defenders. I was curious if they could identify the eligible receivers in the "Swinging Gate" formation. • Mychal Kendricks had himself a very nice day.......
