All tied up

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 2:21 PM
We're all tied up. David Akers just kicked a 23-yard field goal. It's now 10-10 with 2:38 left in the first half. The Eagles just had the ball for 8 minutes, 20 seconds. We've seen all kinds of variations of the wildcat today from the Eagles, which makes me think next week against the Chiefs we're... Read more

Heady play

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 2:00 PM
Eagles linebacker Akeem Jordan just tipped a Drew Brees pass to himself for his second interception this season. Jordan's heady play halted the Saints, who had moved the ball to the Eagles 29-yard line. Jordan also had a pick against the Panthers last week. Read more

Lucky, lucky

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 1:45 PM
The Saints just kicked a 23-yard field goal to retake the lead, 10-7, but boy, it could’ve been a lot worse for the Eagles. With New Orleans facing a third-and-goal from the 8, there was mass confusion among the Eagles defenders. Joselio Hanson tried to call a timeout, as did Andy Reid, to no... Read more

Mobbed on the field

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 1:25 PM
Kevin Kolb was just mobbed on the field. He couldn’t even get to the Eagles sideline before he was swarmed by his teammates, who were fired up that he threw a 71-yard bomb to DeSean Jackson for a touchdown to tie the game at 7-7. Donovan McNabb, wearing an Eagles visor, black shorts and a grey... Read more

Too easy

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 1:14 PM
If the Eagles defense wanted to give Kevin Kolb a little cushion and help calm his nerves, they failed miserably. The Saints just drove down the field and easily scored when Drew Brees found Marques Colston uncovered in the end zone for a 15-yard touchdown. The only Eagles defender in Colston’s... Read more

We're moments away

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 12:47 PM
It is a beautiful day for a football game. Mid-70s, slight breeze, bright blue sky. You can’t dial up a better day. And given the number of fights I saw while trying to get into the parking lot, people have been here for a while. (Big thanks to the guys who moved... Read more

Who do you want under center next Sunday?

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 4:49 PM
Alright, so here's the question: If Five can't play next Sunday, who do you want as your quarterback? Kolb? Or someone else? And would your answer be different if MV7 could play? Discuss. Read more

McNabb has a broken rib

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 4:35 PM
According to Andy Reid, Donovan McNabb has one broken rib. Reid said that McNabb is “sore right now,” but that there’s “a chance” that he could play when the Eagles host New Orleans next Sunday, as unlikely as that seems. The Eagles probably are going to... Read more

Fourth and goal

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 4:24 PM
In the grand scheme of the game, it was a meaningless play, the Panthers going for it on fourth and goal from the 1. But the Eagles D didn’t want to give up a late-game touchdown. They stuffed DeAngelo Williams for a one-yard loss. Eagles win 38-10. This was a great way for the Eagles defense... Read more
