EAGLES PLAYERS AND FANS HAD EACH OTHER’S BACK ALL YEAR

I have seen so many eras over that span including Randall Cunningham, Donovan McNabb, Brian Dawkins, Jon Runyan, Tra Thomas, Brian Westbrook, Eric Allen, William Thomas, Troy Vincent, David Akers […]

FOR PLAYERS LIKE WISNIEWSKI, IT TOOK A WHILE FOR THE SUPER BOWL WIN TO SINK IN

Al Thompson

Stefen Wisniewski walked towards his locker the Tuesday after the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII, easily one of the most exciting championship games in NFL history. Looking at the 6-foot-3, 315 offensive lineman’s face as he made his way past the tables of autographed shiny blue helmets and white […]

FOLES HAS CHANCE TO EARN ETERNAL SPOT IN PHILADELPHIA FOLK LORE

Brian Baldinger

In the Philadelphia Eagles Draft of 2012 they selected Fletcher Cox with the first pick. They had two selections in the second round and took Mychal Kendricks and Vinny Curry. Do you see where this is going? In the third round they selected out of the University of Arizona, a quarterback, named Nick Foles. I […]

FROM ONE KARRAS TO ANOTHER, FOOTBALL IS A FAMILY AFFAIR

Al Thompson

BLOOMINGTON: Ted Karras III, an outstaning offensive lineman for Illinois, never enjoyed a winning season during his three seasons with the Fighting Illini, never played in a Bowl game. But as fate would have it, the 6-foot-4, 305 pounder ended up on the opposite side of the football universe when he was drafted in the […]

FOLES, PATS DEFENSE SET FOR HIS SLIGHT-OF-HAND BALL HANDLING

Al Thompson

MINNEAPOLIS: It has been talked about, probably too many times, that Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is not as good as League MVP candidate Carson Wentz.

Al Thompson

Media Day is the day for dumb questions like “Who has the worst hair on the team?” or “If you could be a dog, what kind of dog would you want to be?” My dumb question? Who was the worst dancer this year? Choices were defensive tackle Fletcher Cox who tried and failed to do […]

MINNEAPOLIS – In the end, it comes down to the line of scrimmage. And that’s where the Philadelphia Eagles have the advantage in Super Bowl LII and that’s where they have to beat, dominate and decimate the New England Patriots on Sunday.
