Maybe some of the recent personnel decisions have their root in player evaluation analytics.

Vick: It's still my team

Despite what Chip Kelly says Vick believes he is the number 1 QB on the Eagles

Vollmer resigns with Pats

+

So much for signing Vollmer. I guess the speculation was that he was the best fit for Chip Kelly's scheme. Makes it all the more likely IMO that tackle is addressed in the draft.

From the standpoint of the Eagles, the timing of the release of this book on September 4th, 2012 should be seen as an unwelcome distraction.

Prep Time & Game Outcomes: An Analysis By The Numbers

Is playing a team coming off its bye really any harder?

Advanced NFL Stats Community: Bye Weeks

1

Much has been made of the fact that the Eagles have to face 4 teams coming off their bye week in the 2012 season. Teams the Eagles will face coming off of a bye: 5. Steelers (Away) 6. Lions (Home) 8. Falcons (Home) 11.Redskins(Away) But how much of a problem is it to face a team coming off of a bye? The author of this blog claims to have done the math. According to this post, the bye week confers no special advantage on home teams. However, the bye week did seem to work in favor of road teams, especially if that team was the favorite going in. If this analysis is correct, then it looks like the Lions coming in week 6 and the Falcons coming in week 8 might have some special bye mojo working for them. However, the Eagles themselves will be coming off their bye for the Falcons game, and Andy Reid has never lost the game directly after the bye since he's been head coach.
