I did things a little differently this week. In addition to notes on how each offensive player performed against the Cowboys, I took a look at how each player fits into the Eagles' 2012 plans. As always, this breakdown comes after having re-watched the game. Michael Vick - I’ll have the full... Read more

Man Up: Kelce, Watkins struggle

Tuesday, December 13, 2011, 4:49 PM
Here's the player-by-player breakdown of the Eagles' offensive performance against the Dolphins after having re-watched the game: Mike Vick - He was out of rhythm for much of the game.

Monday, December 5, 2011, 12:44 PM
Since the player-by-player review is late this week, I changed things up a bit. Below you will find notes on each player's performance against the Seahawks, but I also took a bigger picture look.

Man Up: Failures from the Eagles' offense

Tuesday, November 29, 2011, 11:08 AM
While the Eagles' defense was terrible on Sunday (see yesterday's Man Up here), the offense didn't exactly do its part to help the Birds stay in the game. After scoring a quick 10 points, the offense went: three-and-out, interception, three-and-out, field goal, three-and-out in the second quarter... Read more

Man Up: Eagles' O-line dominates

Tuesday, November 1, 2011, 11:22 AM
The Eagles' offensive line looked like it knew exactly what it was doing Sunday night against Dallas. That may not sound like much, but it is. Because the five guys who took the field had not played a single snap together previously. Danny Watkins did not start until Week 5, and when he finally got... Read more
