Sunday, September 29, 2013, 7:26 PM
DENVER -- The Eagles came here to win and, if they did not win, at least to make progress. As it turns out, they did neither. Progress in football is not linear and never has been -- or not for long, anyway. Hiccups are always going to be part of the process, and everybody understands that. This is... Read more

Wednesday, September 25, 2013, 12:10 PM
In Peyton Manning's 15th NFL season, there is nothing the Eagles are going to do to fool the Denver Broncos' quarterback, Birds defensive coordinator Billy Davis said Wednesday in his weekly confab with reporters.

The Eagles’ defense is strikingly bad. They’re bad statistically and aesthetically. Every drive seems to include at least one play where the whole unit goes down like bowling pins or hey-look-no-one-covered-that-guy-again. Another multi-shot look at all the coverage breakdowns would be... Read more
