Domo: Vikings' Bradford feels 'D' pressure from Eagles

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 03:01:21 GMT2016-10-24T03:01:21Z

THE 230 rushing yards his defense gave up last week to the Redskins was bad, but the goose egg next to its sack total was even worse in Jim Schwartz's mind.

Bowen: Eagles' swarming defense reappears

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 02:30:40 GMT2016-10-24T02:30:40Z

YOU JUST could not put the Eagles' defense in a situation it couldn't handle Sunday. Carson Wentz knows, because he tried.

Hayes: Bradford leaves town a beaten, angry man

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 02:30:39 GMT2016-10-24T02:30:39Z

Sam Bradford shuffled out of the training room like an angry, beaten old man. Carson Wentz ambled out of the shower like a giddy teenager ready for the prom. It might have been as simple as this: Wentz and his Eagles defeated Bradford and his Vikings, 21-10. It was a clear referendum on the Eagles' plan to opt for Wentz over Bradford . . . right? Not exactly. Neither played well.

Murphy: Eagles' Pederson won't settle for playing it safe

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 02:07:09 GMT2016-10-24T02:07:09Z

LATE IN the second quarter of another expectation-shattering victory by the Eagles, there was a moment that exemplified the doctrine that Doug Pederson is establishing for himself.

Cooney: Sixers' Okafor will have to adjust to bench role

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 02:00:27 GMT2016-10-24T02:00:27Z

ALL THROUGH the preseason, 76ers coach Brett Brown has had the unenviable task of trying to get his team ready for a season while being handcuffed in how many minutes he was allowed to have his players on the court.

Smallwood: Eagles mistakes less costly than Vikings'

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 01:28:04 GMT2016-10-24T01:28:04Z

THERE WAS a point during the first quarter of the game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings when the only thought was to score a victory by any means, no matter how ugly things ended up looking.

Ford: Eagles clean up their mess

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 01:06:08 GMT2016-10-24T01:06:08Z

The Eagles entered yet another phase of their season on Sunday - this would be the third, if you're counting - and while it wasn't as good as the first one, it was a lot better than the second.

Sielski: Bradford stands tough, but it's not enough

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 01:04:41 GMT2016-10-24T01:04:41Z

There was a minute and 24 seconds left in the fourth quarter Sunday when the Eagles hit Sam Bradford for the final time, and like each of the 17 shots they delivered before it, they made it count. Brandon Graham slammed into Bradford's upper body, and Con

Big-picture Birds keeping an eye on the future

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 15:37:14 GMT2016-10-23T15:37:14Z

The Eagles had more than two months to prepare for the eventuality that Lane Johnson would be suspended, and yet the personnel department did nothing in terms of adding an offensive lineman either as a replacement or insurance.

Sielski: Read rejuvenating career with quick start

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 18:55:20 GMT2016-10-21T18:55:20Z

Matt Read wasn't 24 hours removed from surgery on his right thumb, and already his general manager was delivering a demand. This was mid-June, the Flyers nearly two months into their summer vacation, and Ron Hextall was making it perfectly clear to Read:

McLane: Well-paid Ertz, Curry not cashing in on the field

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 18:52:39 GMT2016-10-21T18:52:39Z

The Eagles handed out nearly $250 million in contracts to four homegrown players this offseason, but they aren't getting nearly enough production from the group as a whole through the first five games of the season.

Domowitch: Why Brian Dawkins belongs in Canton

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 15:19:07 GMT2016-10-21T15:19:07Z

AS I PUT an "X" next to Brian Dawkins' name on my Pro Football Hall of Fame semifinal ballot the other day, I couldn't help but think of Jim Johnson

Bowen: Birds expect Vikes to hit ground running

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 04:05:50 GMT2016-10-21T04:05:50Z

IT'S A TRICKY process, explaining how what had been the NFL's third-ranked run defense managed to give up 230 yards rushing last week in the Eagles' 27-20 loss at Washington, to a team that previously hadn't run the ball very well.

Hayes: Flyers pay tribute to Snider and his team's golden anniversary

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 03:09:57 GMT2016-10-21T03:09:57Z

ONE FAN'S declaration of devotion rang out in a moment of golden pause: "We love you, Ed!" It was simple, and poignant, and passionate: everything Ed Snider was about.

Kern: Penn's Moskal sure he's in right place now

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 02:48:17 GMT2016-10-21T02:48:17Z

COLTON MOSKAL didn't make a football decision. It was a life choice. "I just started to rethink what I wanted to do once I was done with football," the Penn linebacker said. "Because that can be taken away in a heartbeat. I know there were people wondering what I was doing. But when I figured it out, this is what felt most comfortable for me.

Brand teeming with class on and off court

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 02:48:06 GMT2016-10-21T02:48:06Z

THE WORK STOPPAGE had caused the NBA season to start just after the Christmas holiday in 2011, and the 76ers began it by winning 10 of their first 13 games. Game 27 had the Los Angeles Clippers visiting the Wells Fargo Center, just a day before the Sixers were going to begin a stretch of eight games in 18 days with seven of them on the road. With a regular-season schedule that would include just 66 games, each contest held almost the same importance as an NFL game.

Eagles' Wentz, Cox both learning to deal with hits

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 23:21:53 GMT2016-10-20T23:21:53Z

FRANK REICH said something about Carson Wentz on Thursday that, from an emotional sense, might also be applied to Fletcher Cox. Analyzing the rookie quarterback's response to being hit, harried and hurried over the last two weeks and particularly last Sunday, Reich said: "It usually has an effect on most quarterbacks, to be honest with you. Everybody knows that in this business. You have to regroup from it, but it's hard to stand back there and get hit early and not let it affect you."
