Lane Johnson lashes out at NFL, NFLPA over PED suspension

To say that Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson was not happy about the 10-game suspension he received last season is an understatement. Johnson filed a grievance against both the NFL and NFLPA after the suspension was handed down. But ultimately, he still had to sit those 10 games. Now looking forward to a new season, Johnson himself still seems to be agitated at how the league and his union handled the PED suspension investigation. “Last year was screwed up. I got suspended...

ESPN 2017 NFL QB Tier Rankings

NFL executives are high on Carson Wentz.

ESPN’s Mike Sando gathers a group of "league insiders" every offseason to create tiered rankings of all 32 NFL starting quarterbacks. This year’s panel consisted of 50 insiders, including general managers, head coaches, offensive coordinators, defensive coordinators, personnel directors, analytics directors, scouts, and other executives. These insiders assigned each quarterback a grade from 1 (best) to 5 (worst). The rankings are compiled into an...

Lane Johnson says the Eagles are going to ‘whup some ass against the Redskins’

Lane Johnson thinks the Eagles are going to surprise some people.

The Players’ Tribune recently released an article written by Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson and it is a pretty great read. There are so many different good nuggets in the post, so read the entire thing, but here are some of the highlights.

Lane Johnson promises an ass-whupping

I think I’d say Lane is ready for Week 1.

Let me tell you what’s going to happen in a couple of weeks: This team is going to go...

Overreacting to DJ Pumphrey’s Preseason: A Film Review

Would it really be preseason if we weren’t already condemning rookies?

I understand: the preseason is for disproportionate reactions.

Always has been; always will be, too. All of our football energies have been pent up since the mid-May breakdowns of rookie classes and free agent acquisitions. Bold predictions have flown across message boards, timelines, and local bars. The smallest success blossoms into adamantine validation; the teeniest of failures can only bear ill tidings for the...

Odell Beckham Injury: Giants wide receiver could miss a game or two

Looking at the impact.

It looked like Odell Beckham Jr. was close to suffering a potential season-ending injury when the Giants wide receiver had his leg taken out from behind during New York’s preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on Monday night. Beckham isn’t seriously hurt, it appears, but he still might miss some regular season game action.

ESPN is reporting that Beckham “could miss a week or two of the regular season” due to a sprained ankle. The Giants are scheduled to...

Philadelphia Eagles: How strong is the offensive line?

It’s unsexy but woefully necessary. The 2017 NFL finds itself in a place where even Jerry Jones can be convinced to take a star offensive lineman over the flashy skill player in favor of protecting the most important position in sports. The Philadelphia Eagles have a sophomore quarterback looking to develop into a decade-long starter. Fortunately the Eagles have some depth for their offensive wall. While much of the offseason moves involved stopping the largest leaks at corner back and...

5 reasons Doug Pederson will improve in 2017 and 5 reasons he won’t

Players aren’t the only people who develop

There’s a lot to look forward to for the Eagles in 2017. Carson Wentz’s anticipated jump from year one to year two, that he has actual real life pass catchers to throw to, that the team has a young secondary with exciting potential, and other reasons as well. It all adds up to what should be an improved team. But improvement starts at the top, and Doug Pederson’s performance is as important as anyone else’s. After an acceptable first year...

During a period of time when moving players is historically not active, the Eagles have been wheeling and dealing.

Eagles’ Doug Pederson shuts down rumors that suggest LeGarrette Blount will be a surprise cut

So much for that.

There’s recently been some speculation that the Eagles might cut LeGarrette Blount. One NFL insider went as far to say that the 30-year-old veteran is not a lock to make Philadelphia’s final roster.

Doug Pederson threw cold water on that idea after practice today.

I mean, the guy is a beast of a runner. I don't know what else to tell you. 18 touchdowns; 15 in the red zone last year. That's the production you saw yesterday [and] the style of running that he can do. And...

Doug Pederson: LeGarrette Blount will be ‘a big part of our offense’

There have been some rumblings that LeGarrette Blount may not make the Philadelphia Eagles’ 53-man roster after he has looked unimpressive in the preseason, but head coach Doug Pederson put that talk to rest on Tuesday.Pederson was asked about Blount’s roster security, to which he responded that the 30-year-old running back is a “beast” and will have a big role in Philly’s backfield. Blount has rushed for just 17 yards on nine carries this preseason. While preseason essentially...
