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.
Looks like everyone is pretty confident this home losing streak will end, and the Eagles will win Sunday… are you?
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.
Chip Kelly is known best for his skills as an offensive coach, so that’s what he’s going to focus on during gameday.
The 33-year-old Vick may be the old man on the block now, but he’s proud to have helped pave the way for multidimensional quarterbacks in the NFL. More teams are turning to QBs who can run and the read-option offense has become the latest trend.
