Official: Eagles activate Richard Rodgers, place Joshua Perkins on IR

Welcome back, Dick Rod.

The Philadelphia Eagles activated Richard Rodgers to the 53-man roster and placed Joshua Perkins on injured reserve, according to an official announcement from the team on Friday afternoon.

This move was expected. The Eagles designated Rodgers to return from injured reserve earlier this week. Doug Pederson also announced that Perkins suffered a knee injury that’ll keep him out for a significant amount of time.

Rodgers figures to be an upgrade over Perkins as the...

Eagles activate TE Richard Rodgers

Richard Rodgers will return to action after the Eagles made the decision to activate him Friday, per Jeff McLane of Philly.com. While Rodgers joins Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert on Philadelphia’s active roster, he’ll replace tight end Joshua Perkins. The Eagles waived Perkins to make room on their roster for Rodgers. The former Packers tight end returned to practice recently, and the Eagles aren’t wasting time getting him ready for game action. He’s been on injured reserve...

The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report in advance of their Week 11 game against the New Orleans Saints.

To no surprise, the following four players have been ruled OUT: starting cornerback Ronald Darby, starting cornerback Jalen Mills, veteran running back Darren Sproles, and third string tight end Joshua Perkins.

With Darby and Mills out, it’ll likely be Sidney Jones — who isn’t listed on the final injury — and Rasul...

Concerning the Eagles’ offense and power rankings

The Kist & Solak Show #43!

If the New Orleans Saints’ avoids slow starts like they suffered against the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns, two top defenses, the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles will have to light up the scoreboard to keep pace. Good news: the Saints defense is vulnerable, especially through the air.

The Saints’ run defense has been stout thanks to a stout line and excellent play from linebacker Demario Davis, but their pass defense has been a different story....

Eagles are the biggest defending Super Bowl underdogs since 2009

History made!

The Philadelphia Eagles are making history this week. Unfortunately, it’s not the good kind.

“For the first time since the 2009 season a defending Super Bowl Champion opened as a nine-point underdog when the New Orleans Saints host the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend. The last time this happened, the Pittsburgh Steelers opened as nine-point underdogs on the road in Baltimore on 11/29/09. The Ravens won 20-17, but didn’t cover. So far most of the action (74%) is on the...

Previewing the Saints’ offense and praying for chaos

The Kist & Solak Show #42!

As we ramp up our analysis of the New Orleans Saints entering this all-important Week 11 game it’s important to remember a couple of things. First, football is chaos. More than we would like to believe the difference in a game comes down to pure luck. Second, they play the games for a reason. Sometimes good teams get beat by lesser teams because they just get outplayed.

Those two factors are, for the most part, impossible to predict. The Super Bowl Champion...

Jason Kelce cites lack of accountability as source for Eagles' struggles

The Philadelphia Eagles have appeared to be stuck in a rut for a large portion of the season. While many are quick to suggest the team’s struggles stem from the dreaded Super Bowl hangover that can afflict championship teams, Eagles center Jason Kelce believes the source is much more pervasive but perhaps a more tangible thing to fix. Kelce spoke extensively with reporters on Wednesday about what’s plaguing the 4-5 Eagles. Coming off a disappointing divisional loss to the Dallas Cowboys,...
