Banner-Reid Power Struggle? You'd Better Believe It

Thursday, June 7, 2012, 10:32 AM
The Eagles will hold a news conference this afternoon to talk about Joe Banner losing his key to the executive bathroom at One NovaCare Way. Banner will be there. Owner Jeff Lurie will be there.

Eagles' Image Bothered Lurie

Thursday, June 7, 2012, 8:18 AM
If the news of Joe Banner stepping down as Eagles team president had broken a year ago, I would be on the floor receiving CPR right now, unable to type this. For a long time I thought of Joe as Jeffrey Lurie's surrogate, his summer camp buddy from childhood whose business and sports savvy made it... Read more

Celek Is Celebrated

The subject was Brent Celek, and the double sports hernia surgery plus hip surgery the Eagles' starting tight end underwent at the end of the 2011 season. Clay Harbor, Celek's backup, was amazed.

Monday, June 4, 2012, 3:06 PM
Brian Rolle is the only returning starter among the Eagles' linebackers. Hard to say what that means, exactly -- maybe Rolle was such a pleasant surprise as an undersized, sixth-round rookie that he was given a reprieve when the linebacking unit was reworked in the offseason. Or, maybe you can only... Read more

We'll Notice Cox More When Eagles Hit

Friday, June 1, 2012, 2:23 PM
I've watched a couple weeks of Eagles OTAs now, rookie camp before that, and if you want to know what I've learned about Fletcher Cox, I can confirm that the No. 1 pick is wearing jersey No. 91. Also that he is polite to reporters. Beyond that, your guess is as good as mine. This is no knock on Cox... Read more
