The Eagles' fourth WR

Saturday, June 5, 2010, 11:15 AM
I recently received an e-mail from reader Adam about how Hank Baskett has looked during OTAs. So I thought today would be a good time to delve into the fourth receiver issue. And the truth is, I'm not sure it's really going to matter in the way it's currently being looked at. What I mean is I don't... Read more

Using the Eagles' organization as a model

Friday, June 4, 2010, 11:47 AM
The San Francisco 49ers have won five Super Bowls. The Eagles have won none. The Eagles have made the playoffs eight of the last 10 seasons. The 49ers have missed out on the postseason for seven straight seasons, their longest drought since 1973-1980. And according to one writer, the Eagles can... Read more

Eagles notes: Practicing panic mode

Thursday, June 3, 2010, 2:35 PM
A big day for MTC. We have at least one Eagles player who admits to having seen, read or heard about Man Up. Winston Justice. When players walk off the field at NovaCare, reporters (and me) wait for them and grab whoever they want to talk to. Here's the conversation Justice and I had: Me: Winston... Read more

No practice for McCoy

Thursday, June 3, 2010, 10:19 AM
Eagles running back LeSean McCoy did not practice with the team Wednesday at the NovaCare Complex due to a tweaked ankle. The second-year running back was being looked at by the training staff towards the end of Wednesday's practice. Stewart Bradley, who left yesterday's practice early with a tweaked... Read more

A few quick links before calling it a night. If you missed them earlier, here are my observations from today's Eagles practice. And here is the video report. We've been chronicling the back and forth between Brent Celek and Cowboys linebacker Keith Brooking all offseason. Brooking fired the first... Read more

Roles for Macho, Allen and others

Wednesday, June 2, 2010, 3:18 PM
It was time for the second-team defense to get its turn. On this day, that meant Nate Allen standing to the side and watching. But there was no time for a breather. He started with Quintin Mikell and Stewart Bradley, asking them questions about the reps he'd just run through. Then it was over to Asante... Read more

Eagles, RB Scott agree to terms

Wednesday, June 2, 2010, 10:20 AM
The Eagles and running back Charles Scott have agreed to terms, the team announced this morning. It's a four-year contract, which we know doesn't mean much, considering the Eagles can cut Scott at any time. Scott is the Eagles' first rookie draft pick to sign. The Birds picked Scott with the 31st... Read more

Te'o-Nesheim, Tapp and inside pressure

Tuesday, June 1, 2010, 4:10 PM
The play was over, but Marlin Jackson was not getting up. Trainer Rick Burkholder went over, helped him to his feet and assisted Jackson off the field with one other person. In the corner of the practice bubble at the silent NovaCare Complex, Burkholder tried to calm Jackson down, as the Eagles' safety... Read more
