Thursday, July 15, 2010, 1:13 PM
On the plane ride out west, I finally finished reading Mark Maske's book: War Without Death: A Year of Extreme Competition in Pro Football's NFC East.

Do Eagles have NFL's best young talent?

Wednesday, July 14, 2010, 1:28 PM
The theme of the 2010 Eagles season is pretty simple. The franchise has turned the keys over to Kevin Kolb and his group of young, talented playmakers as the Birds transition from the Donovan McNabb era. Kolb, who turns 26 in August, is surrounded by DeSean Jackson (23), Jeremy Maclin (22), Brent... Read more

An e-mail from popped up in my inbox yesterday with two items that are of interest here. The first concerns Michael Vick. Bodog sets odds around whether Vick will be a member of the Eagles in Week 1: Yes (-180) No (+140) I know we're all pretty sick of discussing this situation, but two... Read more

Will the Eagles' D reach its goals?

Saturday, July 10, 2010, 8:30 AM
At 9:11 p.m. Friday evening, I bought the PDF version of the 2010 Football Outsiders' Almanac. About a half-hour later, I found myself looking up the Eagles' blitz trends over the past five years. Do I need a life? Yes. Although my excuse here is that I had to be up at 5 a.m. to catch a flight to... Read more
