Discussing the future with an Eagles beat writer

BGN Radio Special w/Zack Rosenblatt!

Making it clear that Carson Wentz is the quarterback of the franchise moving forward was just step one. The Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles are facing a bevy of decisions as they enter the off-season. To help me give a look into how those decisions may unfold I brought on Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com to preview the off-season.

First we took a look back at Nick Foles and his time here with the Eagles and how the Eagles will handle his situation. Do...

The Eagles have a LOT of questions to answer this offseason

Philly’s front office has a lot of critical decisions to make.

Not all NFL offseasons are created equal.

If you go back to last year, the Philadelphia Eagles didn’t have to face a lot of tough decisions. It was pretty clear that some key role players (Trey Burton, Beau Allen, etc.) would be leaving in free agency. The NFL Draft was going to be relatively uneventful as the Eagles only had five picks to work with. And with the Super Bowl honeymoon in effect, I think it’s safe to say...

Report: Former Eagles QB coach John DeFilippo hired by Jaguars

Nick Foles to Jacksonville?

The Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly expected to hire John DeFilippo as their new offensive coordinator, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Flip has been a free agent ever since the Vikings fired him after a Week 14 loss to the Seahawks. Minnesota originally hired him as their offensive coordinator shortly following the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory.

As BGN poll results indicate, Eagles fans will be bummed to see that Philly’s former...

Philly fans show embattled Eagle Alshon Jeffery support at 76ers game

Alshon Jeffery has been navigating an extremely tough week, but Philly fans showed their love for the embattled Eagles wide receiver at Tuesday night’s 76ers game. Jeffery unfortunately played a key role in the Eagles coming up short against the Saints in last weekend’s divisional round. His dropped pass late in the game sealed the Eagles’ fate after Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore intercepted the ball, thwarting a potential comeback victory. While it would have been easy for...

Even one of Philadelphia’s biggest haters admits he’s impressed by the Eagles

Philly has broken one of their biggest critics.

I can’t believe I’m saying this about the guy who once said “Philadelphia is the dumbest sports city in America” but Colin Cowherd actually had a really good take on the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this week.

You would think that Cowherd might rip the Eagles for how their 2018 season ended, calling them a “one-year wonder”or a “fluke.”

But he didn’t. Instead, he actually went on a long rant about how the Eagles were...

Zach Ertz, Fletcher Cox withdraw from 2019 Pro Bowl

No need to get hurt in a meaningless game.

None of the three Philadelphia Eagles players originally named to the 2019 Pro Bowl — Brandon Brooks, Fletcher Cox, and Zach Ertz — will be playing in the actual game this year.

Brooks obviously can’t play even if he wanted to. The Eagles’ starting right guard suffered an Achilles injury during Philadelphia’s playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Cox and Ertz, meanwhile, have withdrawn from the event. Cox also got injured...

Brandon Graham makes it clear that he plans to test free agency - PFT
On Monday, Eagles defensive end Brandom Graham created the impression that he possibly would be willing to give his current team a hometown discount. On Tuesday, Graham made it clear that’s not the case. “I love Philly but I owe it to myself and my family to explore free agency,” Graham told PFT by phone on Tuesday...

Malcolm Jenkins replaces Landon Collins in 2019 Pro Bowl

Well deserved recognition.

Philadelphia Eagles starting safety and defensive captain Malcolm Jenkins is going to the 2019 Pro Bowl after all.

Jenkins was named as a replacement for New York Giants safety Landon Collins, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in Week 13. It’s the fourth time Jenkins has made the Pro Bowl in his 10-year career.

Jenkins really shouldn’t have had to make the Pro Bowl as an alternate. He’s really good and very underrated.

Jenkins didn’t a single...

Eagles sign two speedy wide receivers to reserve/future contracts

Worth a shot.

The Philadelphia Eagles signed free agent wide receivers Marken Michel and Johnny Holton to reserve/future contracts, according to an official announcement from the team.

The Michel signing was first reported two weeks ago. Here’s what we wrote at the time:

Michel has logged 72 receptions for 1,215 yards (16.9 average) and eight touchdowns over two CFL seasons with the Calgary Stampders. He’s also rushed the ball four times for 47 yards and one score. And he even has kick...

9 most likely team destinations for Nick Foles in 2019

Where will the Eagles’ Super Bowl MVP quarterback end up?

It’s high unlikely that Nick Foles will be back with the Eagles in 2019.

Doug Pederson declared Carson Wentz is Philadelphia’s starting quarterback moving forward. Foles, meanwhile, said he wants to be a starter again.

Foles will be a free agent in March if the Eagles decline to pick up his $20 million option for 2019. Even if the Eagles DO pick it up, Foles can opt out by paying back $2 million to the team. From there, the...

Taking stock of the Eagles’ running back situation heading into the 2019 offseason

It isn’t a great year for adding depth to the super young position group.

During the end-of-the-season press conference on Tuesday, Eagles EVP of football operations Howie Roseman talked about areas of interest in the upcoming NFL Draft, and he identified that it could be a historic class for defensive ends and tackle. Interestingly, he also said that it was a bit weaker in terms of top-tier quarterback and running back prospects.

With injuries plaguing the running back position for the...

Young Eagles fan pens touching letter to Alshon Jeffery

A young Philadelphia Eagles fan overcame her disappointment in Sunday’s tough loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC divisional round to write a touching letter to a player who certainly could use a boost: Alshon Jeffery. Second-grader Abigail wrote to Jeffery during class on Monday to tell him to keep his chin up despite how his dropped pass late in the game sealed the Eagles’ fate after Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore intercepted the ball. Abigail’s letter, as transcribed by...

PLUS: Comments on Nick Foles, the coaching staff, and much more.

Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson spoke in tandem on Tuesday to wrap up the 2018 season, and spoke with confidence about Carson Wentz being their quarterback moving forward, and Pederson claiming all three coordinators would be back for 2019.

Roseman opened with some words about the organization, and specially giving credit to owner Jeffery Lurie and the culture he’s established with the Eagles. Roseman specifically pointed to...

NFL Mock Draft 2019: Picks for all the eliminated teams

Who should the Eagles take?

After an exciting end to the season that featured winning four out of five final games, a surprise playoff berth, and an upset of the Bears in the Wild Card Round ... the Eagles’ offseason is here. A month ago, it felt like the Eagles were toast and due for a major rebuilding project this offseason. However, their spark to end the season gives some hope regarding a lot of the young talent on the team. With three picks in the first two rounds of the 2019 NFL...

Final Eagles locker room speeches from Doug Pederson and Malcolm Jenkins set the right message

Already can’t wait for the 2019 season.

The Philadelphia Eagles did something unique on Tuesday morning. For obvious reasons, they usually only share video of Doug Pederson’s postgame locker room speeches following Eagles wins. But the Eagles decided to share Pederson’s speech following the Eagles’ playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints. And when you watch it, you can understand why.

This year the injuries were too much to overcome

The Eagles were never at 100%

Football is a game of attrition. The best teams usually have relatively healthy rosters, which is one of the things that made the 2017 Eagles so special. That team was able to overcome a injuries to key players and win the Super Bowl. The 2018 Eagles also dealt with injuries, but theirs were both high quality and high quantity, and while they didn’t win the Super Bowl, they did pretty damn good for a defending champion. As we go through the Eagles post-mortem...

Well deserved.

The Professional Football Writers of America officially announced their 2018 All-NFL team on Tuesday morning.

Two Philadelphia Eagles made the cut this season: center Jason Kelce and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

This marks the second year in a row both players have earned these honors. They’re obviously well deserved; Kelce and Cox are truly elite players at their positions.

In addition to this list, one more Eagles player was named to the PFWA 2018 All-NFC team: right...

Complete list of 2019 Eagles free agents

It’s going to be an interesting offseason.

Nick Foles said it well following the Philadelphia Eagles’ playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints: the toughest part about the season being over is knowing it’ll be the last time that exact team will be together.

Philadelphia’s front office has a lot of critical roster decisions to make this offseason, especially when it comes to free agency. The team is currently projected to be $12.1 million OVER the cap so they’ll have to be wise about...
