The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants 36-21 in their rivalry game on Sunday. The Eagles locked up the victory by pulling away in the fourth quarter behind some strong play by backup quarterback Nick Foles. Foles, who finished with almost 200 yards passing, threw two touchdown passes in the fourth to cement the win. He replaced the oft-injured Mike Vick who was taken out of the game in the first half due to a hamstring injury. Vick is going in for an MRI soon and according to Coach Kelly is still the starting quarterback if healthy.
The Philadelphia Eagles got absolutely manhandled by the Denver Broncos to the tune of 52-20 this afternoon. Peyton Manning had his way with the porous Eagles D, throwing for over 300 yards and 4 touchdowns in only 3 quarters of action. The Broncos looked every bit the Super Bowl favorite in this one by generally manhandling the struggling Eagles in every aspect of the game.
Lets. Go. Eagles! Even though it got a little close towards the end there, the Eagles took care of business by winning 33-27 behind a strong first half.
It’s finally here! Our Philadelphia Eagles go up against the Redskins to open up Monday Night Football this season. It certainly is lining up to be an exciting divisional matchup due to the media spending a lot of time talking up this game.
We lost to the Jets?!?! What the heck, fire Chip now! Oh, what’s that? It’s the preseason? Oh, ok, I almost had a small heart attack there. Our Iggles lost the preseason battle 27-20 due to the great playing of Jets backup quarterback Matt Sims (?) and the less-than-spectacular showing by our own backup, Nick Foles.
The New England Patriots came out victorious over the Birds last night by a score of 31-22. While I don’t want to jump to too many conclusions after a preseason game, there are a few points that I liked and disliked throughout the game.

Donovan McNabb has officially hung up his uniform and called it quits as a Philadelphia Eagle, following the signing of his one-day contract with the team yesterday. I grew up with this man as my quarterback and couldn’t be happier that he chose to retire as an Eagle. He certainly received his fair share of flak from us during his tenure with the team, but I think we can all agree that his time with the Eagles was a fun time for all of us. He may have never won the big one but he captained many deep playoff runs and was the face of the franchise for many years. I think he is easily one of the greatest Eagles of all time and am ecstatic that he came back home to retire.
Just a few days into training camp and the Eagles are already down a star player. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who led the team in receiving yards during the miserable season that just passed, was injured during a 7-on-7 drill.
This offseason, newly hired head coach Chip Kelly has been keeping many of his plans for the upcoming season very close to vest. The only real training development that has surfaced is Chip’s infatuation with sleep monitors and proper dieting, which hardly satiates the fans’ desire to know what the Chip regime will look like. We want to know how the offense is going to operate, what schemes the defense is going to unveil, and especially who will be starting under center. Since Chip hasn’t let on much about who will be the starting quarterback, let’s reason through the possibilities for the upcoming season.
Rookies and quarterbacks reported to the NovaCare Complex for the start of training camp today, marking the beginning of the first camp during the Chip Kelly Era. The Eagles won't be holding camp at Lehigh this year, opting instead to stay at home to train. The camp should have a few interesting battles and see some situations play out.
