An In-Depth Analysis of Our QBs and (More Importantly) the Franchise’s Future Commitment to Each

Prioritizing Eagles Off-Season Needs

Who stays and who goes on the Eagles defense?

DeMeco Ryans And Why He Should Be Traded This Off-Season.

The Best Question I Have Heard About Moving Forward

NFC East Rookie Snap Counts

In the words of my Great GrandFather; Great Googily Moogily. I knew we had a lot of rook's getting burn, but goddamn that is just slightly ridiculous. If you are a looking-forward kind of fool, I would think that this is greatly encouraging.

"Obviously the coach is the one that’s going to take the fall, but I’ve seen a lot of things that disgust me when you turn on the film in terms of players, cornerbacks and what not, not wanting to stick their face in there, not hustling to the football, and when you have that on a team that’s a cancer. You can’t get past that."

John Lynch on Mike and Mike. Maybe Big Red isn't as much to blame for this mess as we all think he is. On second thought, yes he is.

Here's a 'suggestion' for Panther Cam Newton: Stop throwing people under the bus

For those of us who think it couldn't be worse, well, at least our QB isn't an asshole who the only thing he seems to be able to avoid is accountability.

Reid Explains Run/Pass Discrepancy (Again)

"We probably could have done a little bit more of that early," Reid said. "We had a couple fumbles early and got away from it. I thought as it’s all said and done, we probably could have run a little bit more early." Bullshit. Shady had 1 fumble last year in 321 attempts. He lays the 1st carry on the ground and now all of a sudden he is a fumble risk and you go away from the running game. Yeah, okay. "We thought we saw some things there for the pass game. They were giving us some coverages that we thought we could take advantage of. We hit the one before the half and thought we could come back and get them again there." Bullshit again FatMan. You had thrown the ball almost 30 times at that point and only run it 8 times, so don't use that one throw at the end of the half as the reason you threw it so much. I understand that reporters have to ask these questions, but they don't have to swallow the bullshit that he spews as an acceptable answer. The fact is that you and Minionwheg are smug and arrogant, and you are going to try to do it your way no matter what, even when your opponent is obviously weak against the run.

Eagles Sign Edwards Through 2013

Wow. Didn't see this coming. I wonder if it has anything to do with the Eagles having cap space this year versus not having as much next year and extending him helps with 2013's cap space. I know he and Foles are close also. This may also have something to do with his development and maturation and they see Edwards as helping Foles progress as an NFL QB and want him around next year too.

Eagles rookie Boykin could leapfrog Hanson

Hoffman's daily fluff piece. The reason I am FS'ing it is this: "The point is, the position is complicated. And while Reid says, "[he's] getting better every day, so that gap's narrowed," the reality is that Hanson really knows what he is doing. But it is also true that Boykin is the better natural athlete." I like Hanson. I really do. In another life, one where my fat ass would win a proverbial sports lottery and somehow make it to the NFL, Hanson's trek to get there would probably be the same one I would have to endure. That being typed on the InterWebs, 1- Boykin has the higher ceiling, especially long term, and it won't take long for him to get to the same point as the best Hanson has to offer and 2- keeping Boykin for the slot and cutting Hanson lets you keep a more talented player OVERALL at a different position, ie Tapp or McNutt (or for those of you who have this massive infatuation with Cash) or Harris.

I'm sure many of you already check Tommy out on his blog, but for those of you who don't, this should be mandatory reading after every game.
