Lane Johnson selling 'Home Dogs' T-shirts to help fund schools

The Philadelphia Eagles worked hard this past season to earn home-field advantage for the playoffs. Though, they are considered the underdog to the visiting Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.Because of the underdog label, tackle Lane Johnson created this “Home Dogs” custom T-shirt. The cool thing is that all proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go to help fund local schools. Might we see some fans actually wearing this T-shirt? That is very likely. Those folks might even be...

NFL Coaching Rumors: Frank Reich is a potential candidate for Titans job

Will the Eagles lose their OC?

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich is a potential candidate for the Tennessee Titans’ head coaching job, according to a report from Terry McCormick of Titans Insider.

Good luck with that.

The New York Giants are expected to hire Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur as their next head coach, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Shurmur has the experience the Giants desire. He served as the...

Michael Lombardi says he was wrong to call Doug Pederson the least qualified head coach in the last 30 years


Prior to the start of the 2017 NFL season, former NFL general manager Michael Lombardi said some REALLY dumb stuff about Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson.

Lombardi specifically said that Pederson “isn’t a head coach” and he “might be less qualified to coach a team than anyone I’ve ever seen in my 30-plus years in the NFL.”

And yet, here the Eagles are, hosting the NFC Championship Game after going 13-3 in the regular season.

I’d say that Lombardi was...

NFL Playoff Results: Eagles will host Vikings in NFC Championship Game


The stage is officially set: the Philadelphia Eagles will host the Minnesota Vikings in the 2018 NFC Championship Game.

The Vikings advanced by defeating the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional Round by a final score of 29 to 24. The Saints were able to rally from a 17-0 deficit but Minnesota won due to a missed tackle on the last play of the game! That was nuts.
