The NFL is considering a heavy tax on it, citing the fact that the gridiron is a workplace, and thus they can control the language and lexicon of its players. It’s probably the most delicate and toxic topic we’ll ever discuss in sports.
The latest back-and-forth over the Washington Redskins name includes a stern letter from two lawmakers and a new “community voices” campaign from the team.
Chip Kelly spoke about the continuing maturation of Nick Foles, the coming bye week, the red-zone defense, his coaching staff and the development of the young defensive line at his day-after press conference after the Eagles won their third-straight game, 24-16, beating the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
When the lead hit 24-0, an Eagles win seemed like it was a forgone conclusion. But much like the season opener against Washington, the Eagles offense stalled in the second half, and Robert Griffin III was engineering a bit of a comeback.
All alone in first place at the bye week, riding a three-game winning streak. This is the sort of stuff that dreams are made of. Admittedly, those are the dreams of a modest man, but dreams none the less.
There is a local debate brewing at Neshaminy High School in Bucks County over the use of the controversial nickname “Redskins.”
he Eagles will be missing a couple of defensive players this weekend as they look to snap their home losing streak in Lincoln Financial Field. Safety Earl Wolff and back-up linebacker Jake Knott have been ruled out by the Eagles for this weekend’s home game against the Washington Redskins.

The Eagles and Redskins appear to be meeting this week heading in opposite directions. While it seems the Eagles may have started to find a little bit of a groove, the Redskins continue to stumble their way through the season and are in real danger of not being able to defend their NFC East crown.
When I first heard the cacophonous call for Daniel Snyder to change the name of his football team, I cringed. It felt like the sport we worshiped since childhood was under siege, crushed by the tide of groupthink.
Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon says quarterback Robert Griffin III is “a lot different” this year.
It’s a giddy time. The Eagles have won one game, a surprising victory, to open their season and to hear some of the talk swirling around Philadelphia and on its airwaves, the Eagles may never lose another game again.
The first quarter of the Eagles 33-27 win over Washington was both the fastest and slowest thing you’ve ever seen.
The first quarter of Monday night’s Eagles game was a whole lot of Eagles offense, and not that much Eagles defense. That’s a compliment to both units, as the offense was operating at a high efficiency, and the defense was able to get the ball back rather quickly with a turnover and a safety.
Knee-jerk reactions to the Eagles win over the Redskins.
