Eagles reportedly hire Bill Musgrave as their new quarterbacks coach.
Fans of the 94WIP Morning Show vote that they’d rather have Nick Foles over Luck, Kaepernick, Newton and Wilson.
From Snow Bowl to Pro Bowl. Weeks after leading his team to a come from behind victory in blizzard-like conditions at the Linc, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles will be packing his shorts and suntan lotion and heading to Hawaii.
It’s official: Johnny Football will be in the NFL in 2014.
It was a day the Eagles were hoping wouldn’t come for another month.
The last thing anyone expected out of the 2013 Eagles season was a storybook performance from Nick Foles.
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.
At times, it seemed like the Eagles were a team of destiny. A lucky bounce here and there, a convenient injury to an opponent, the top rated passer in the NFL, and the leading rusher.
If the Eagles going from worst to first under rookie coach Chip Kelly was the biggest surprise, Foles’ emergence had to be second on that list.
The New Orleans Saints had never won a road playoff game and were often marred by their road woes and the “cold curse.” Temperatures in Philadelphia were down in the twenties and Drew Brees was faltering, but the Saints left it in the hands, or on the foot, of their newest player in Shayne Graham.
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. The time for season-long evaluations will come over the coming week, but for now let’s take a quick look at how the Eagles performed in this game.
Even though the loss to the Saints was disappointing, the Eagles season was full of surprises.
Michael Vick was a good soldier for the Eagles this season. From his vocal support of Riley Cooper during the pre-season, to his public backing of Nick Foles as the team’s starting quarterback, Vick did not make waves when it would seem like the natural thing to do.
The Eagles are eliminated from the playoffs following their 26-24 loss to the New Orleans Saints Saturday night.
The Eagles play their first playoff game in three years tonight, hosting the New Orleans Saints. Fans say they’re ready to bring the heat to frigid Lincoln Financial Field.
