BOLDIN'S PRICE STILL HIGH

Friday, April 24, 2009, 4:50 PM
According to an ESPN report, the Arizona Cardinals have reduced their asking price for wide receiver Anquan Boldin, but a league source I talked to a short while ago described that story as "BS." The report also said the Eagles, New York Giants and New York Jets were all interested in Boldin... Read more

BIG KID NOT ON THE BLOCK

Thursday, April 23, 2009, 2:37 PM
The Eagles, contrary to what one "league source" is saying, are not contemplating a trade that would send two-time Pro Bowl guard Shawn Andrews elsewhere. A team source said that today after Philly.com's Eagleterian and ProFootballTalk.com apparently talked to the same source about this... Read more

BROWN SAYS OTHER EAGLES FEEL THE SAME WAY

Tuesday, April 21, 2009, 12:58 PM
Cornerback Sheldon Brown, still plenty steamed about his contract situation, said this morning that he knows he's not the only player on the Eagles' roster feeling underpaid and underappreciated. "Without a doubt there are going to be more problems," Brown said this morning. "I'm... Read more

BROWN'S TRADE REQUEST NOT SURPRISING

Monday, April 20, 2009, 5:13 PM
Sheldon Brown is unhappy with his contract and wants to be traded. Fish are fond of water. Neither bit of news should come as a surprise. The Eagles' response to Brown's trade demand, on the other hand, is surprising because they typically do not comment on such matters. “It’s very... Read more

An Eagles source has confirmed that the team has agreed to a deal that will send two draft picks to the Buffalo Bills for two-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jason Peters.

BOLDIN SHOULD BE THE TARGET

Thursday, April 16, 2009, 3:28 PM
Here's some free advice for the Eagles and coach Andy Reid: Make the deal for Anquan Boldin. If it takes one of your first-round picks and a third-rounder, do it. Here's why: Donovan McNabb. Whatever happens in next weekend's draft won't matter one bit if McNabb doesn't think what the team has done... Read more

The Eagles will open their 2009 season Sunday Sept. 13 on the road with a 1 p.m. game against the AFC South champion Carolina Panthers, who went 12-4 during the regular season a year ago.

21 AND 28 IS TOO LATE

Tuesday, April 14, 2009, 3:26 PM
Predicting what the Eagles are going to do in the NFL draft is no way to make a living. Go find the person who had them trading out of the first round in the 2007 and 2008 drafts and you have found a certified liar. And still we predict. After listening to general manager Tom Heckert field questions... Read more

HARRY THE GREAT

Monday, April 13, 2009, 4:30 PM
Hard to believe, Harry, is what his best friend would have said. And isn't it impossible to believe that the golden voice of the Phillies and NFL Films has left us forever? I just got off the telephone with Ron Jaworski, who was heartbroken when he heard the news of Kalas' death today in Washington... Read more
