Lito reportedly won't start vs. Colts

Sunday, January 24, 2010, 12:15 PM
This is the last day of real football until Week 1 of the 2010 regular season. Don't get me wrong. We love the offseason - free agency, the draft, mini-camps, training camp, etc. There will be no shortage of things to write about. But we're not big on the Super Bowl. Too much non-football stuff.... Read more

Report: Steroids dealer said he supplied Vick

Saturday, January 23, 2010, 2:13 PM
Dealer David Jacobs told the Dallas Morning-News in 2008 that he supplied Michael Vick with steroids when he played for the Atlanta Falcons. The obvious question is: Why are we hearing about this now, two years later? Per today's report, the News did not publish Jacobs' comments initially because... Read more

The final Eagles penalty breakdown

Friday, January 22, 2010, 4:01 PM
Throughout the season, we kept track of the Eagles' penalty count, broken down player-by-player. We didn't get to this the last few weeks of the season so I wanted to present the final numbers. Below you can find that list, but first some notes: * The Eagles finished fourth-worst with 115 penalties... Read more

What they're saying: McNabb debate; Vick's future

Thursday, January 21, 2010, 4:28 PM
I had the opportunity to spend Wednesday morning with the fine folks at Freire Charter School as part of their Career Day. My goal when speaking to each of the four groups was to avoid having more than three students fall asleep on me. So I started with an informal poll: Raise your hand if you want... Read more

Shawn Andrews: I owe Reid, Philly

Wednesday, January 20, 2010, 7:37 AM
Since the Eagles put Shawn Andrews on injured reserve in the preseason, we haven't heard much from him, aside from his very active Twitter account. But he opened up last week in a radio interview on the Sports Bash with Mike Gill on 97.3 ESPN. Andrews said he's about four-and-a-half-weeks removed... Read more

Simms: McNabb's not the problem

Tuesday, January 19, 2010, 9:06 PM
Very interesting interview with Phil Simms on WIP this afternoon. I suggest listening to the whole thing, but there are some excerpts I wanted to share here. Everyone has an opinion on Donovan McNabb and the Eagles' future at quarterback. Simms is no different. He offered what I thought was a fair... Read more

Monday, January 18, 2010, 1:06 PM
Injuries to Brian Westbrook's left knee could force the Eagles' running back into retirement this season, according to a report by Howard Eskin on NBC-10. As Eskin understands it, Westbrook's career as an Eagle is "definitely" over, and it's unlikely that he'll play again anywhere if he... Read more

With 1:55 left in yesterday's NFC divisional game, Brett Favre found tight end Visanthe Shiancoe for an 11-yard touchdown to put the Vikings up 34-3.

Vikings do what Eagles could not

Sunday, January 17, 2010, 4:43 PM
After back-to-back victories against the Eagles, the Cowboys saw their season come to an abrupt end Sunday afternoon against the Minnesota Vikings. Dallas couldn't protect Tony Romo, and its defense got burned by big plays in the 34-3 loss. So it will be the top two seeds - Minnesota and New Orleans... Read more

Will Kurt Warner retire?

Sunday, January 17, 2010, 8:57 AM
As discussion of Donovan McNabb's future continues to dominate this city's sports conversation, one team often mentioned as a possible landing spot is the Arizona Cardinals. If the Eagles decide to deal McNabb, he's going to have a say in where he's going. With only one year left on his contract,... Read more
