Philadelphia Eagles v Atlanta Falcons

Defense Needs To Stick Around Sunday

By Merrill Reese:  The Eagles and the Falcons collide Sunday at the Linc in a game that’s far bigger for the 3-3 Eagles than it is for the 6-0 Falcons.  Win, and the Eagles get […]

Philadelphia Eagles v Atlanta Falcons

Time To Break Out The Weapon

By Merrill Reese: As we all know, the Eagles have a pass-first offense, but this might be a week to emphasize their greatest weapon namely LeSean “Shady” McCoy. Check the Falcons defensive play-by-play and you’ll find […]

Miami Dolphins v New England Patriots

Bowles Offers Advantage Over Falcons

By Merrill Reese: The Eagles have a bit of an advantage in the preparation department as they get set for Sunday’s visit from Atlanta.  Falcons head coach Mike Smith admitted that It’s difficult to prepare for […]

Detroit Lions v Philadelphia Eagles

NFC East Is Still Anyone’s

By Merrill Reese:  My Eagles outlook brightened Sunday after a day of watching other games. The Giants won but Eli Manning threw two awful interceptions, but I guess having won two Super Bowls absolves him […]

Detroit Lions v Philadelphia Eagles

Back To Work After The Bye

By Merrill Reese: Back to work for the Eagles today.  I hate the bye week, especially after a loss.  In fact, for fans the most unsettling thing about football is the space between games.  I’m very […]

Philadelphia Eagles v Detroit Lions

Eagles Record Against Lions Is Good

By Merrill Reese: The Eagles have dominated Detroit in recent meetings.  Michael Vick made his first start as an Eagle against them in 2010 and was practically unstoppable, but that was a different Lions team.  This […]

Lions Game Carries A Lot Of Weight

By Merrill Reese: For the Eagles another day of practice as they prepare for the Detroit Lions.  This game means so much. Take care of business and they charge into their bye week with at least […]

Philadelphia Eagles v Pittsburgh Steelers

Quite A Weapon In Shady McCoy

By Merrill Reese: Shady McCoy, what a weapon!  I doubted the wisdom of going for it on 4th and 1 last Sunday in their own territory early in the fourth quarter. Andy regambled and it worked, […]

Philadelphia Eagles v Pittsburgh Steelers

Turnovers Kill

By Merrill Reese: Turnovers kill.  That’s not a new theory.  It’s something we’ve known for as long as we’ve watched football.  Occasionally you overcome them against an inferior opponent but eventually they stop you in […]

Pittsburgh Steelers v Philadelphia Eagles

Sunday’s Game Should Boost Eagles

By Merrill Reese: The Eagles haven’t exactly prospered in Pittsburgh in recent years, but now they have a chance to change all that.  It won’t be easy.  The Steelers are 1-2 and coming off their bye. […]

New York Giants v Philadelphia Eagles

Rule On Kicker Icing Should Be Changed

By Merrill Reese: You can debate the practice of freezing the kicker all you want.  It can worth both ways.  Fortunately it didn’t kill the Eagles last Sunday night.  My problem is the rule itself, permitting […]

Kickoff Coverage Must Be Fixed

By Merrill Reese: After winning the first two games despite nine turnovers it was obvious that eventually turnovers would do the Eagles in, that was a significant factor in their loss in Arizona.  Against the Giants […]

Quarter Point Report Card

By Merrill Reese: Heading into this season it was tough to gauge this Eagles team.  After four games here’s what we know:  They’ve got some areas of real concern but they also have some blue chip […]

New York Giants v Philadelphia Eagles

Incredible Win On Sunday Night

By Merrill Reese: Incredible.  Absolutely incredible.  In one of the most compelling games in the long Eagles/Giants series the Eagles prevailed last night 19-17 at the Linc.  It was an intense back and forth battle, it […]

Giants Game Will Reveal More About Eagles

By Merrill Reese: Before the opener, I jotted down the date September 30th and the time 11:30PM.  That’s when I believed we’d be in position to really judge this football team. The first four games are […]
