LeSean “Shady” McCoy and Jason Peters are the Eagles’ representatives to the Pro Bowl.
Monday Night on 94WIP’s Player Lounge show, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had a special Christmas message for Eagles fans.
It took nanoseconds for the Dallas talk to begin in the Eagles’ locker room soon after their 54-11 thrashing of the Chicago Bears on Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field.
It looks like the Phillies are having some second thoughts about spending money.
Outside of his seven-touchdown performance in Oakland earlier this season, this may have been the best game Nick Foles has had all season. Foles completed 21 of 25 passes for 230 yards and a pair of touchdowns, both coming in the first quarter as the Eagles jumped out on top of the Bears from the start.
The Eagles got things right, Kelly made sure of that, in a thoroughly dominating 54-11 victory over the Bears.
This could be quite an offensive showdown. Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson vs. Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
The Eagles couldn’t have been very happy on the flight home from Minnesota.
For the first time, this Eagles team was faced with the position of being the team that should win and had no logical reason to lose. To the surprise of some, the Eagles played like a team unfamiliar with taking on the role of favorite, and that inexperience may have come in to play.
If 203 victories, 2 Cy Young Awards and over 2,000 strike-outs aren’t enough for entrance into the Hall of Fame, I’m not sure what is.
The loss snapped the Eagles’ five-game winning streak, dropping them to 8-6 with two games left, while Minnesota improved to 4-9-1.
The Eagles face the Vikings Sunday in Minnesota with the teams and their respective head coaches seemingly headed in opposite directions.
Chip Kelly spoke about the character of his team, the comeback against the Detroit Lions in eight inches of snow and what the Eagles were faced against in Sunday’s memorable 34-20 victory during his day-after press conference at the NovaCare Complex.
Credit Chip Kelly and his staff for committing to an offensive style that at times is not what they feel is most comfortable. Sticking to the power running game and letting the offensive line set the tone up front proved to be the best decision Kelly could have made. It helps to have one of the best running backs in the league, LeSean McCoy, blowing through the holes opened up in front of him.
It seemed like we all changed our opinion of the snowy Eagles game at the very same time.
