McLane: Pederson showing he's more than just a Reid clone

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 03:21:31 GMT2016-09-25T03:21:31Z

Doug Pederson has adopted his share from the Andy Reid school of head coaching, but he has also diverged from the template, most notably in regard to how offensive plays are communicated and the speed at which they are delivered.



Ford: What if the Eagles are really good?

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 01:16:04 GMT2016-09-25T01:16:04Z

All right, fine. What if? This voice of reason stuff can wear you out. Always bringing an umbrella if there is a distant cloud in the sky. Sticking your hand in the post office mail slot to make sure the envelope fell through. Stepping carefully over the crack in the sidewalk.



Newton wants accountability, unity in hurting Carolina community

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 19:53:49 GMT2016-09-24T19:53:49Z

The intersection of professional sports and incendiary sociological issues is not going away. Another torch was lit last week in Charlotte after 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott was shot and killed by Charlotte police during the department's search for another man who had a warrant for his arrest.






Eagles' Trey Burton gets chance to showcase his skills

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 05:31:45 GMT2016-09-24T05:31:45Z

Eagles tight end Trey Burton had three career catches entering Monday night before almost doubling that total in the team's 29-14 win over the Chicago Bears.



Eagles trying to get Wentz to avoid unnecessary hits

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 04:35:53 GMT2016-09-24T04:35:53Z

Carson Wentz has created a frenzy in Philadelphia, but it will continue only if he can stay on the field. Wentz's throws and decisions won't prompt any squirming, but the same can't be said about the hits he has taken.



Eagles-Steelers scouting report

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 04:10:27 GMT2016-09-24T04:10:27Z

When the Eagles have the ball Carson Wentz has gone two games without turning the ball over, but that will be more difficult against a Steelers defense with four takeaways this season. The turnover margin will be important to monitor, because the Steelers are too talented for the Eagles to give away possessions.



Birds' protesters feel vindicated but powerless

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:38:15 GMT2016-09-23T20:38:15Z

TULSA IS MOURNING. Charlotte is seething. Malcolm Jenkins feels both vindicated and impotent. "It's a reinforcement of my own convictions," said Jenkins, who led the Eagles' anthem protest Monday night in Chicago. He stood in front of his locker after practice Thursday, put on a baseball cap and continued: "There's a feeling of helplessness, when you see this stuff on national television."



Eagles-Steelers predictions

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 18:03:35 GMT2016-09-23T18:03:35Z




Pederson: Ertz, McKelvin out this week but back after the bye

Eagles' Pederson praises the play of Brent Celek

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 16:10:02 GMT2016-09-23T16:10:02Z




Surgery let Carson Wentz step up for the Eagles

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 14:49:01 GMT2016-09-23T14:49:01Z

Carson Wentz, the latest great hope of Philadelphia Eagles fans, might never have landed here if a North Dakota hand surgeon hadn't inserted a variable pitch screw in the quarterback's right wrist last October.



Jason Kelce fighting off another slow start

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 11:18:34 GMT2016-09-23T11:18:34Z

If you've thought that Jason Kelce hasn't performed well this season, you're not the only one. "Poor" is how the Eagles center described his blocking through two games.



Live updates: Eagles vs. Steelers

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 06:18:24 GMT2016-09-23T06:18:24Z




Eagles-Steelers scouting report

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:59:26 GMT2016-09-23T05:59:26Z

By Paul Domowitch Recent history: The Steelers defeated the Eagles, 16-14, in Pittsburgh on Oct. 7, 2012. The Eagles have won eight consecutive times in Philadelphia, where the Steelers have not won since 1965. The Eagles lead the series (dating to 1933), 47-28-3.



Can shorthanded Eagles secondary contain Antonio Brown?

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:57:41 GMT2016-09-23T05:57:41Z

When the Eagles put their game plan together for the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, they noticed that there's not one way to cover Antonio Brown because he does not play just one way. He moves to different spots in different formations, drawing different defensive backs in different coverages.



Eagles' Graham has winning attitude regarding Schwartz

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:57:17 GMT2016-09-23T05:57:17Z

BRANDON GRAHAM thinks he once won a bet for Jim Schwartz, which might have some bearing on the coordinator's fondness for the defensive end he was happy to inherit from Chip Kelly and Bill Davis last winter.



Bowen: Birds must stop Steelers' Roethlisberger from extending plays

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:56:54 GMT2016-09-23T05:56:54Z

THE FOLLOWING statement is guaranteed to be both gluten- and hyperbole-free: The Eagles' secondary should face its toughest test of the season Sunday afternoon. Ben Roethlisberger is the best quarterback the Birds are likely to encounter until late November clashes with Seattle's Russell Wilson and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers. And Roethlisbeger has better weapons than either of those guys.



Domo: Eagles shouldn't get super excited just yet

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:56:29 GMT2016-09-23T05:56:29Z

RIGHT OFF the top, let's give a big round of applause to NFL senior vice-president of broadcasting Howard Katz. The Eagles are 2-0, and Katz is every bit as responsible for your late-September euphoria as Doug Pederson, Carson Wentz and Fletcher Cox.



Sielski: Reich draws on experience with prodigies to teach Wentz

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 05:55:37 GMT2016-09-23T05:55:37Z

Frank Reich has spent a fair share of time around athletic prodigies, going back to when he was himself a three-sport star at Cedar Crest High School in Lebanon, Pa. He has played with and against gifted men and coached them, too, and he has learned to appreciate the small, oft-unseen things they do to make themselves great and the lengths to which an opponent might go to prevent them from manifesting that greatness.



Fantasy football : Expect Steelers' Brown to bounce back

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 01:12:08 GMT2016-09-23T01:12:08Z

TAKE A LOOK at Antonio Brown's numbers - 136 catches and 1,800 yards last year, two-time first-team All-Pro, 100-plus calls handled daily at the ESPN reception desk - and one question pops into mind.



Schwartz: Time of possession a two-way street

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 21:39:22 GMT2016-09-22T21:39:22Z




Eagles' Ertz still out because of 'stuff' behind displaced rib

Seahawks' Richard Sherman says message of anthem protests getting lost

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 11:45:06 GMT2016-09-22T11:45:06Z

RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said Wednesday the public isn't listening to the message NFL players are trying to send with their actions during the national anthem.



Domowitch: Discarded by Eagles, Villanueva now a heavy hitter with Steelers

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 10:59:36 GMT2016-09-22T10:59:36Z

CONNOR BARWIN'S most vivid memories of Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva during his four-month cup of coffee with the Eagles two years ago have more to do with food than football.



Fantasy football chat with Ed Barkowitz

Ford: Can Eagles be Destiny's team?

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 04:28:45 GMT2016-09-22T04:28:45Z

Destiny is a funny thing, and some might say it's an amusing first name for an NFL defensive tackle as well. I would not be one of those to say that, however, at least not to Destiny Vaeao, the Eagles 6-foot-4, 299-pound rookie.



Murphy: Lurie can learn a lot from Steelers' model

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 04:28:20 GMT2016-09-22T04:28:20Z

THE VIEW from the owner's box at Lincoln Financial Field offers its occupants a nice panoramic of the visitors' sideline. On Sunday afternoon, Jeffrey Lurie will spend three hours staring at the kind of thing he should be trying to build.



Eagles' linemen enjoying duty as third tight end

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 04:08:24 GMT2016-09-22T04:08:24Z

THE EAGLES worked a lot on their three-tight end package in the preseason, but so far, they haven't had three healthy tight ends.



Bowen: In Wentz, Steelers QB sees his old, fearless self

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 03:00:35 GMT2016-09-22T03:00:35Z

YOUNG DUDES and peer pressure. What are ya gonna do? That was Ben Roethlisberger's take, more or less, on how difficult it is to get a rookie quarterback such as Carson Wentz to truly, viscerally understand the value of discretion when rambling out of the pocket.



No gloating, Eagles fans, if you're with Browns, Rams fans

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 02:42:56 GMT2016-09-22T02:42:56Z




Eagles still waiting for Isaac Seumalo

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 01:17:13 GMT2016-09-22T01:17:13Z




Will Eagles' Carson Wentz follow Roethlisberger's path?

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 01:04:04 GMT2016-09-22T01:04:04Z

Once Doug Pederson determined Carson Wentz could be his starting quarterback, he cited Ben Roethlisberger with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2004 as a model for a successful rookie quarterback. Roethlisberger went 13-0 as a starter that year and helped the Pittsburgh Steelers to the AFC championship.



Sielski: Time for Eagles wide receivers to start helping Wentz

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 20:02:44 GMT2016-09-21T20:02:44Z

While the literary world anticipates the publication of Jon Gruden's debut novel, Love in the Time of Carson, let us contemplate a deep and meaningful question about the Eagles: Just how good would Carson Wentz be if his wide receivers had opposable thumbs?



Live from NovaCare, Sielski and Murphy break down Eagles-Bears

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 19:20:35 GMT2016-09-21T19:20:35Z

In the latest episode of their weekly podcast, columnists Mike Sielski and David Murphy discuss the Eagles' 29-14 win over the Bears in Week 2.



Off-duty cops sue LeSean McCoy over Philly bar fight

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 17:07:33 GMT2016-09-21T17:07:33Z

Two Philadelphia police officers injured in an off-duty bar fight involving LeSean McCoy have filed suit against the former Eagles star.



Hayes: Why can't people understand what anthem protests are about?

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 16:38:00 GMT2016-09-21T16:38:00Z




Murphy: Eagles' Pederson knows how to run an NFL team

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 15:50:39 GMT2016-09-21T15:50:39Z

Let's start with the timeouts, because that is what the conversation always turned to with the other guy, isn't it? Not the last guy. The guy before that guy. The guy we ran out of town in part because of a frustrating penchant for failing to bank them for the parts of games in which they are most necessary.



Eagles playing time analysis vs. Chicago

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 13:32:03 GMT2016-09-21T13:32:03Z




Like Wentz, Pederson is promising Eagles rookie

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 05:32:45 GMT2016-09-21T05:32:45Z

In the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 29-14 win over the Chicago Bears on Monday, the team faced a fourth down near the goal line while holding a 15-point lead. Coach Doug Pederson could have sent his special teams onto the field for a chip-shot field goal that would have made it a three-possession game.

Sources: Eagles' Johnson notified of suspension

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 02:30:28 GMT2016-09-21T02:30:28Z

OFFICIALLY, THE Eagles know nothing about any Lane Johnson suspension, Doug Pederson said Tuesday. Unofficially, league sources confirmed an Inquirer report: Johnson has been notified of the long-expected, 10-game suspension after testing positive for what the Eagles' right tackle has said were banned peptides that weren't on the label of an amino acid supplement he took. The Eagles certainly are aware of this.



Bowen: Eagles vs. Bears -- The Day After

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 02:00:26 GMT2016-09-21T02:00:26Z

ONCE AGAIN, just as in Carson Wentz's debut, the throws were strong and solid, but they weren't the gist of the story.



Rookie Wentz continues to play like a seasoned vet

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 01:21:22 GMT2016-09-21T01:21:22Z

Carson Wentz gave a look of frustration and arched his back before popping up and slapping his hands. The Eagles quarterback had just stared down the barrel of the blitzing Jerrell Freeman and delivered a BB to Brent Celek for a 19-yard gain. He took a tremendous shot.



Broken nose not likely to sideline Kendricks

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 00:08:12 GMT2016-09-21T00:08:12Z

Mychal Kendricks broke his nose and suffered a quadriceps bruise in the Eagles' 29-14 win over the Chicago Bears on Monday. Kendricks is considered day-to-day, according to coach Doug Pederson, who expects him to play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
