Smallwood: Eagles' season no laughing matter

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 00:04:56 GMT2016-12-08T00:04:56Z

DOUG PEDERSON knew immediately that his attempt at levity had not gone well. At Wednesday's press conference, a reporter began a question with the notion that the Eagles were still technically in the NFC playoff picture.



Eagles nearing the bottom of Domowitch's NFL power rankings

Eagles Rodney McLeod, Zach Ertz discuss scrutinized plays

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 23:18:33 GMT2016-12-07T23:18:33Z




McLane: Eagles failed to invest properly at cornerback

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 23:00:16 GMT2016-12-07T23:00:16Z

The names and the faces change, but the Eagles have had inferior cornerbacks for at least five years. It isn't revisionist history to point out that the current cast was unlikely to be consistently effective. Management invested little in the position, weakened depth with trades, and signed questionable talent.



Do you believe? Pederson says he still does

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 21:57:12 GMT2016-12-07T21:57:12Z




Eagles' Reich: Losing finally getting to Carson Wentz

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 18:57:04 GMT2016-12-07T18:57:04Z

The big kid was so confident, not in a bad way, but in a way so infectious and magnetic that even veteran coaches found themselves caught up in the aura of Carson Wentz, the 23-year-old who could handle anything.



Hayes: Nothing about Wentz you wouldn't expect from a rookie QB

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 04:07:01 GMT2016-12-07T04:07:01Z

THE WENTZ WAGON has a broken axle and a bent wheel. Right? The rookie is regressing, so all of that maneuvering to get the No. 2 pick was wasted. Right?



Bowen: Schwartz tackles Eagles' poor defensive effort against Bengals

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 04:00:12 GMT2016-12-07T04:00:12Z

JIM SCHWARTZ'S name has always stood for an aggressive style of defense. But when you're losing and you can't get a stop, aggressiveness seeps away.



Schwartz says Eagles defense lacks confidence

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 02:27:12 GMT2016-12-07T02:27:12Z

Jim Schwartz met with his defensive players on Tuesday morning like he does each week. But the context was different after the Eagles' 32-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. He addressed the lack of effort and energy that coach Doug Pederson criticized the Eagles for one day earlier, and he needed to infuse confidence in a unit Schwartz conceded has been among the NFL's worst in recent weeks.



Donnellon: The Zach Ertz equation has many variables

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 01:07:49 GMT2016-12-07T01:07:49Z




Frank Reich on how Carson Wentz is dealing with losing, interceptions

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 00:51:52 GMT2016-12-07T00:51:52Z

"Well, for a while I thought he seemed totally unflappable," offensive coordinator Frank Reich said. "Now, in some of the more recent losses, do you sense that this is, ‘Okay, he's feeling this one, he's feeling this one?’ Yeah, we're all feeling it."



Randall Cunningham, QB and punter, enters College Hall

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 23:32:02 GMT2016-12-06T23:32:02Z

NEW YORK - Randall Cunningham, 53, still as lean and solid as a goalpost, wore his new status as proudly as he did the scarlet-and-gray cloth carnation in his sport coat's lapel.



McLane: Wentz's woes tough to fix during season

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 22:55:22 GMT2016-12-06T22:55:22Z

The Eagles, like many NFL teams, identified a few mechanical flaws in Carson Wentz's delivery during their predraft evaluations. They were considered minor. Almost every quarterback who has made the jump from the collegiate ranks to the pros has had his throwing motion adjusted.



Hayes: Pederson should bench McLeod, Ertz for soft play

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 22:54:49 GMT2016-12-06T22:54:49Z

LITTLE ELSE turns the stomach like watching football players quit. Their job is brutal; their nature, brutish. Yet they choose this life and they are paid like princes to perform, and they never turn down their paychecks. It is their job to fight and flail and finish.



The school of slow thinking

Birds' Eye View podcast: Should Doug Pederson be fired if Eagles don't turn season around?

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 16:28:46 GMT2016-12-06T16:28:46Z

On this week's edition of Philly.com's Birds' Eye View podcast, Jeff McLane and Zach Berman dissect the Eagles' lack of effort in Sunday's woeful loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, what head coach Doug Pederson's role in it was, and whether the Eagles should fire Pederson when the season ends if things don't get better.



Sielski: How is Pederson being judged?

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 12:27:47 GMT2016-12-06T12:27:47Z

Once a week, Doug Pederson joins Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman for a meeting of the power people atop the Eagles' organization - even if, relatively speaking within the franchise's hierarchy, Pederson has a center cubicle without a view. These meetings,



Bowen: Eagles' Wentz playing like a rookie

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 02:09:04 GMT2016-12-06T02:09:04Z

DOUG PEDERSON says he isn't worried about Carson Wentz, but that doesn't mean we can't be. Sunday's game was alarming, and the short, uncomfortable postgame media session with the rookie quarterback didn't provide any reassurances.



Pederson acknowledges 'not everybody' played hard

Eagles-Bengals: What did we learn?

Five reasons the Eagles lost to the Bengals

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 00:48:01 GMT2016-12-06T00:48:01Z




Eagles' Dorial Green-Beckham injures oblique, expected to play vs. Washington

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 00:47:30 GMT2016-12-06T00:47:30Z




Eagles expect Green-Beckham to play vs. Redskins

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 00:28:12 GMT2016-12-06T00:28:12Z

Eagles wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham suffered a bruised abdominal muscle in the 32-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday but is expected to play in the Eagles' next game against the Washington Redskins.



Pederson questions effort of some Eagles

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 00:03:01 GMT2016-12-06T00:03:01Z

For all of the banal statements NFL head coaches make throughout a season, Eagles coach Doug Pederson offered an honest assessment when asked Monday if all of his players "played hard" in the team's embarrassing 32-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.



Murphy: Wentz's game reminds us he's a rookie

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 23:40:09 GMT2016-12-05T23:40:09Z

CINCINNATI - The thought is one that all rookie quarterbacks force upon their fan bases. Usually, it occurs well before Week 13. You want the upside and excitement of a high-reward investment? This comes with it. More often than not, it comes well before now. The first hint of a downside, the crystallization of risk. On a gloomy day in a gloomy city, the Eagles confronted their own mortality. His name was Carson Wentz, and he was really, really bad.



Commentary: Eagles are disrespecting their fans

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 20:58:52 GMT2016-12-05T20:58:52Z

"I drain all the life out of myself out there," said Randall Cunningham, former Eagles' quarterback, when asked in 1990 about his effort on the playing field. "I get paid to play, to win, to give the city pride, so maybe everybody can forget for a little while how hard life is."

'This is fine': 8 cartoons about the lifeless Eagles

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:07:31 GMT2016-12-05T15:07:31Z

Have the Eagles given up? Is Doug Pederson in over his head? Is Carson Wentz regressing? Sunday's 32-14 loss to the Bengals left more questions that answers. As the Inquirer's Jeff McLane wrote, "They came out flat, they made countless unforced errors, they played undisciplined football and they lacked spirit."

So while Eagles fans are left scratching their heads, here are eight cartoons by Inquirer sports cartoonist Rob Tornoe that will hopefully lighten the mood.




Bowen: Eagles claim they haven't quit, but it looks that way

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 14:02:54 GMT2016-12-05T14:02:54Z

CINCINNATI - Several Eagles declared their team never quit Sunday, in a 32-14 loss to a Cincinnati Bengals group that set a season scoring high, and led 29-0 in the third quarter.



Bowen: Little reason to get excited about DeSean report

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 13:47:58 GMT2016-12-05T13:47:58Z




Ford: Loss to Bengals casts shadow on seasons to come

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:57:52 GMT2016-12-05T12:57:52Z

CINCINNATI - The Eagles didn't just lose a game or whatever hope lingered for their season on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. They lost, or should have, the organization's belief that better days are right around the corner.



Brookover: Wentz wagon's wheels fall off

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:48:37 GMT2016-12-05T12:48:37Z

CINCINNATI - Carson Wentz's first pass Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium was rejected at the line of scrimmage. His second pass, one play later, slipped through the hands of linebacker Vincent Rey, a rare drop that actually benefited the Eagles, but also a clear sign of what was about to unfold for a quarterback and team that have helplessly watched a once promising season spiral in the wrong direction.



McLane: Pederson must prove he's up to task

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 08:52:55 GMT2016-12-05T08:52:55Z

CINCINNATI - Doug Pederson needed an unusually long amount of time before he took the podium. He is typically on the later side when it comes to postgame news conferences, but his extended absence seemed abnormal, except for maybe the fact that the Eagles had just delivered the worst performance of Pederson's first season as coach.



Domo: Eagles' 'D' even makes Dalton look good

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 08:52:27 GMT2016-12-05T08:52:27Z

CINCINNATI - This wasn't catch-me-if-you-can Russell Wilson, throwing bubble screens and quick hitches and eluding pass rushers until his receivers got open.



Eagles, Wentz battered by Bengals

Eagles up-down drill

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 04:31:02 GMT2016-12-05T04:31:02Z

Doug Pederson DOWN - The Eagles coach didn't have his team ready to play. There's no other way to look at it. Pederson has four games to show that the players are still giving full effort for him.

Green-Beckham's injury leaves Eagles even shorter at WR

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 04:27:39 GMT2016-12-05T04:27:39Z

CINCINNATI - Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews missed Sunday's 32-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals because of a sprained ankle. Nelson Agholor rejoined the lineup after last week's benching.



Eagles defense fading fast - stats bear that out

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 04:26:35 GMT2016-12-05T04:26:35Z

CINCINNATI - The Eagles coaching staff changed, but the late-season defensive slumps remain from the previous administration. The Eagles defense was considered a strength earlier this season. It now appears to be a liability.



Sure-handed Agholor drops back into starting lineup

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 04:25:30 GMT2016-12-05T04:25:30Z

CINCINNATI - Catching four passes for 23 yards in a 32-14 loss isn't going to attract a gaggle of reporters to your locker stall very often, but if you're Nelson Agholor, even those modest numbers represent progress.



Eagles not as young as you might think

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 22:40:46 GMT2016-12-04T22:40:46Z

The premise presented by Doug Pederson last week was that the Eagles are a young team on the verge of getting better. It's flawed, mostly because the coach's team isn't as young as he thinks it is.
