Should Eagles Fans Boo Redskins Receiver DeSean Jackson? Absolutely

If fans choose to show some appreciation for the good times Jackson brought to Philadelphia, go for it. But in the end he accomplished no more in Philadelphia than any wide receiver in terms of bringing a championship parade down Broad Street than Terrell Owens or Todd Pinkston. Jackson left his mark on Philadelphia, there is no question about it, but the trophy case still remains empty.

Eagles Must Prepare For RGIII And Kirk Cousins In NFC East Rivalry Game

The big question for Washington to answer this week is which quarterback will be put on the field to lead the offense. After suffering what looked to be a tough ankle injury against Jacksonville, it would appear Robert Griffin III will have to take at least a week off and allow Kirk Cousins to get the start under center.

Injuries On Offensive Line Continue As Eagles Head To Indianapolis

The Eagles had to shuffle the offensive line this week following a couple of injuries on the line in the season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Right tackle Lane Johnson continues to serve his suspension for another three games, including Monday night, but the Eagles also lost reserve lineman Allen Barbre (broken leg). Starting left guard Evan Mathis (knee) is out of action until at least Week 10. The concerns on the line will continue this week with Matt Tobin having to sit out of practices this week due to an ankle injury.

Eagles Already Playing Musical Chairs On Offensive Line

If Kelly is a master of preparation, which he seems to suggest he is, then the Eagles will find a way to fly by the next few weeks without much problem with a shuffled offensive line. This will be easier said than done. The Eagles managed to get by Jacksonville with some concerns on the line. With Indianapolis, Washington and San Francisco coming up, the margin for error may not be great.

Putting The 2013 Philadelphia Eagles Season In Perspective

A season of transition brought a new coach with a breath of fresh air and a new identity as a team. There were adjustments along the way as Chip Kelly adjusted to life as an NFL coach after serving an entire career at the college level, but his players bought in to the mentality Kelly introduced to them and fought their way to an NFC East division title few saw coming before the season started.

A last-second field goal by Shayne Graham brought an end to the first season of the Chip Kelly era as the Saints left Philadelphia with a 26-24 victory in the NFC Wild Card playoff.

Philadelphia Eagles In Mostly Good Health Heading Into postseason

The Philadelphia Eagles will need their defensive secondary to be on their toes this weekend with Drew Brees leading the New Orleans Saints in to town with a monster of a passing offense. Fortunately for the Eagles, the defensive backfield is getting healthier in time for the playoffs.

Philadelphia Eagles Prepare To Face Drew Brees

Drew Brees can be patient behind a steady offensive line. The Eagles struggled to bring a pass rush on Kyle Orton many times on Sunday night, so look for the defensive line to try and correct that this week against New Orleans. Easier said than done of course.
