Sports Illustrated has a long history of cover stories that end in disaster for the players and teams being featured.
The stories of the Sports Illustrated Jinx are many. Players that find themselves on the cover of the legendary magazine have a habit of failure in the immediate future after the issue comes out.
If being on the cover of Sports Illustrated is still considered a jinx, the Eagles don’t have a quarterback who can escape it.
The Eagles are still an unproven team with a second-year quarterback and a first-year head coach leading the charge. That does not mean Nick Foles and Chip Kelly are necessarily incapable of turning the world upside down and sending a parade down Broad Street, but this is still very much an uphill battle. There is much work to be done this season.
The Eagles are alone in first place in the NFC East, but the players insist their focus is on Minnesota.
2013 was an up and down year in Philadelphia sports, to say the least. The first half was full of “downs,” including coaching changes for every professional team, and losses upon losses as well.

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.
LeSean McCoy rushed for an Eagles all-time record 217 yards and scored 2 TD’s as the Birds beat the Detroit Lions 34-20 Sunday afternoon.
Two potent offenses will face off Sunday when the Detroit Lions visit the Eagles in a potential NFC playoff preview.
For the second straight week the Philadelphia Eagles will be in mostly good health, but rookie safety Earl Wolff will once again be out of action. The young rising defensive player in the Eagles secondary will be sidelined for the second straight game with a knee injury.

The 94WIP Suicide Pool is down to just 56 survivors with four weeks to go. If your pulse is still beating, odds are you don’t need any help from me, but here I am nonetheless.
Last year, the Eagles were playing for pride. This season, their December schedule has much greater implications.
Chip Kelly spoke about how Nick Foles has taken on a “followship” role with the Eagles, how the defensive front is playing and how the Eagles need to finish better.
Chip Kelly says that he hopes Nick Foles is the QB of the Eagles ‘for a long time.’
