New York Jets v Philadelphia Eagles

Ok, This Is It

By Merrill Reese: Ok this is it.  At least, this is it part one.   Or maybe, after last week, part two. The Eagles meet the Cowboys at 4PM tomorrow, but I’m even more nervous about [...]

New York Giants v Philadelphia Eagles

Jason Peters Is One Of The Best

By Merrill Reese: Who’s the best athlete on the Eagles? Is it Michael Vick, Shady McCoy, DeSean Jackson?  How about Samuel or Asomugha? Center Jason Kelce nominates his linemate, left tackle Jason Peters.  He flows [...]

New York Jets v Philadelphia Eagles

Brent Celek Deserves Praise

By Merrill Reese: He may not be one of the Eagles so-called marquee names but let me tell you Brent Celek is terrific. As a tight end there are times when he’s out of the [...]

New York Jets v Philadelphia Eagles

This Is One Unbelievable Season

By Merrill Reese: I don’t believe this season. We thought the Eagles were dead after the Arizona loss and they followed with an exciting win at the Giants. After getting killed by the Patriots and [...]

New York Jets v Philadelphia Eagles

A Day Of Amazement And Broken Records

By Merrill Reese: Records fell as the Eagles buried the Jets 45-19 yesterday at The Linc and stayed alive in the NFC East. Shady McCoy scored three rushing touchdowns to eclipse the season touchdown total [...]

Philadelphia Eagles v Seattle Seahawks

Shady McCoy Is The Eagles Only Ray Of Light

By Merrill Reese: Shady McCoy is the bright spot in an Eagles season that gives the phrase, “lackluster” new depth. Shady’s now gained well over 1100 rushing yards and he’s scored 15 touchdowns. The Eagles [...]

Arizona Cardinals v Philadelphia Eagles

An Eagle-Less Weekend May Have Been Therapy

By Merrill Reese: The weekend felt weird without an Eagles game but with the way things have been going, it was probably therapeutic for all of us. It’ll be interesting to see how the Eagles [...]

New England Patriots v Philadelphia Eagles

Both Eagles And Seahawks Are 4-7

By Merrill Reese: It is the Eagles and the Seahawks tonight here in Seattle.

Eagles Head West To Seattle

By Merrill Reese: The Eagles depart for Seattle today.  They hardly had time to get over that Patriots disaster but what can they do?  That’s part of Thursday night football, although I honestly don’t think [...]

New England Patriots v Philadelphia Eagles

Your Frustration Is Understandable

By Merrill Reese: I can’t remember a season quite like this one.  To call it disappointing is an understatement. Yes the Eagles made changes and yes they had the lockout that robbed them of OTA’s [...]

New England Patriots v Philadelphia Eagles

Tough Night At The Linc

By Merrill Reese: It couldn’t have started better, or finished more disturbingly as the New England Patriots beat the Eagles 38-20 at The Linc. The Eagles scored the first ten points and then it was [...]

The Win We’ve Been Waiting For

By Merrill Reese: It was a wonderful night for the Eagles as they relinquished a 4th quarter lead but came back to take another lead and beat the New York Giants 17-10 at The Meadowlands. [...]

Chicago Bears v Philadelphia Eagles

Sunday’s Game With Arizona Looks Good On Paper

Merrill Reese: Its The Eagles and Arizona Sunday at The Linc.  On paper it looks like a win, but this game isn’t played on paper. Statistically the Eagles edge the Bears in almost every category [...]

Where Do We Go From Here?

By Merrill Reese: Where do they go from here? The Eagles have put their playoff intentions into a 3rd and long. The most disturbing part of the season is the patterns that began in week [...]

Chicago Bears v Philadelphia Eagles

Tough To Aim Blame

By Merrill Reese: Its tough to blame any one segment for this team’s 3-5 half season. Andy Reid always says there’s enough pieces of the pie to go around, although this hardly tastes like pie. [...]
