Eagles suffer injuries to Alonso, Thornton, Kendricks

September 22nd, 2015 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on Eagles suffer injuries to Alonso, Thornton, Kendricks | Filed in Eagles, Football, NFL, Sports

After coming off one of the worst losses in recent history this past Sunday, it seemed like things couldn’t get much worse for the Eagles. However, the punches to the guts of Eagles fans keep on coming.

Mychal Kendricks, Cedric Thornton and Kiko Alonso, three key players of the Eagles front seven, are reportedly all hurt and could miss extended time.

Thornton reportedly broke his 4th metatarsal in his right hand during the Eagles 20-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday. The injury reportedly could keep the defensive end out for 2-3 weeks. With Thornton out the Eagles will most likely have Taylor Hart and Vinny Curry fill the void of Thornton.

Kendricks suffered a hamstring injury in the loss to Dallas on Sunday, which forced him to leave the game and never return. The injury doesn’t seem to be serious though, and Kendricks could play Sunday against the New York Jets, according to Howard Eskin:

Kelly says Eagles will not trade Mychal Kendricks

August 2nd, 2015 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on Kelly says Eagles will not trade Mychal Kendricks | Filed in Eagles, General, NFL

In his opening press conference of training camp, Chip Kelly shot down any remaining rumors about linebacker Mychal Kendricks. According to Kelly, the Eagles are not trading Kendricks, and told reporters to “write that down in ink”.

The quote from Kelly backs up a report from CSN’s Derrick Gunn, who reported last night that the Eagles are likely to keep Mychal Kendricks.

With Kendricks staying, the Eagles depth at inside linebacker remains a strong point for the team with Alonso, Ryans, and rookie Jordan Hicks all expected to be on the roster come week one.  It still should be noted that Kendricks still has not been approached by the Eagles regarding a contract extension.

Keeping Kendricks is with out a doubt the best move going forward for the Eagles. There is no denying the talent that Kendricks brings to the football field, and the idea of having newcomer Kiko Alonso paired with Kendricks has many Eagles fans very excited.

Report: Eagles shopping Mychal Kendricks

April 30th, 2015 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on Report: Eagles shopping Mychal Kendricks | Filed in Eagles, Football, NFL

For weeks the Eagles have been rumored for weeks to be shopping Mychal Kendricks. It is believed that the Eagles would include Kendricks in a trade to trade up for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

Jason La Canfora of CBSSports is now reporting that the Eagles are indeed shopping Kendricks:

The tweet of course is a bit odd because trading Kendricks for a second round pick takes Kendricks out of a potential deal for Mariota. However, La Confora brings answers that question with his next tweet:

Report: Latest Eagles rumor has team trading Cox, Kendricks, and Bradford

April 24th, 2015 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on Report: Latest Eagles rumor has team trading Cox, Kendricks, and Bradford | Filed in Eagles, Football, NFL

Over the last three months the Eagles have been involved in every possible rumor that involves trading up for Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. However, over the last week the rumors have really picked up, and the general consensus is starting to become that the Eagles have a real shot of actually getting a deal done to land the former Oregon Duck.

Which rumors, if any, are true is always something that is so hard to determine. Some can be completely fake, while others can be smokescreens leaked by teams on purpose, while others might actually have some legitimacy to them.

The latest Eagles rumor seems like one of those rumors that is a long shot, but it is obviously worth reporting.

According to NJ.com’s Mark Eckel, there is a new rumor making it’s rounds around NFL personnel meetings that involves the Eagles trading Sam Bradford, Mychal Kendricks, and Fletcher Cox. Here is what Eckel wrote in his story:

“One rumor, making its rounds in NFL personnel meetings, has the Eagles dealing Bradford to the Browns for the 19th overall pick. It’s been widely reported that the Browns offered that 19th pick to the St. Louis Rams for Bradford before the Rams traded him to the Eagles for Nick Foles and a 2016 second-round pick. Despite reports that Bradford, in the final year of his contract, would not sign an extension with Cleveland, the Browns are said to still have interest.

Looking Ahead: Philadelphia Eagles

January 21st, 2014 by Sam Shipley | Comments Off on Looking Ahead: Philadelphia Eagles | Filed in Eagles, Football, General

The Philadelphia Eagles are coming off their best season since winning the NFC East back in the 2010 season. It was a very exciting year from day one way back on January 16th of last season, when the Eagles made the “big splash” by hiring Chip Kelly.

Kelly made the leap from Oregon to the NFL, and it was a leap that many people were very interested in watching. However, the reaction wasn’t exactly all positive at first, as some thought that Kelly and his “college offense”, which was very fast would struggle in the NFL. Or that Kelly was just the wrong hire for this team, as some wanted now Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley.

One year and four days later, I think those negative comments are now put to bed.

After winning just 12 games the previous two seasons combined, Kelly led the Eagles to a 10-6 season in his first go around as head coach in the NFL. However, it was a much more fun and exciting 10-6 season than previous years or even for other teams. Kelly’s new offense was for real right from the start, as the Eagles scored 33 points in each of their first two games against the Redskins and Chargers.

That same offense would end up finishing 2nd in yards per game and 4th in points per game in the NFL this season.

Arizona Cardinals (7-4) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (6-5)- Game Preview, Breakdown, Injury Report and Predictions

December 1st, 2013 by Kyle Lutz | Comments Off on Arizona Cardinals (7-4) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (6-5)- Game Preview, Breakdown, Injury Report and Predictions | Filed in Eagles, Football, General

Time/Place- 01:00 PM, Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA
TV Channel/Radio Station- FOX/94.1 WIP

The Eagles come back home, after their bye week last week, this Sunday at 1:00 to play the smoking hot Arizona Cardinals at the Linc. Arizona comes in at 7-4, after a blowout victory vs. Indianapolis last week, 40-11. They’ve won four straight, and yet, if the playoffs started today, they wouldn’t make it. Thus, they are hungry and continuing to fight, to earn one of those two wild-card berths come playoff time.

On the flip side, the Eagles come in at 6-5, off of their bye week, having won three straight prior to the off week. They blew out Oakland 49-20 almost a month ago at Oakland’s Coliseum, a game in which Nick Foles tied an NFL record with seven touchdown passes (with no interceptions to boot). The next two weeks, prior to the bye, they defeated Green Bay at Lambeau 27-13 without Aaron Rodgers behind center, and defeated rival Washington at home 24-16, respectively. This season, Nick Foles has thrown zero interceptions, and 16 touchdown passes, for an amazing quarterback rating of 128; which leads the league.

Foles isn’t sure to win MVP honors just yet, because he’s missed a few games, and well, because Peyton Manning is lighting the league on fire, at a dramatic rate, but he’s proved, at least for the time being, that he’s worthy of being in this league as a starter. Chip Kelly even gave him his vote of confidence.

Defensively speaking, Philadelphia has picked up the load there tremendously as well, improving under their new 3-4 scheme, under first year (under the Eagles) defensive coordinator Billy Davis. They’ve only given up 13.5 points-per-game in their past four outings, and the improvements have led to the team being ranked 18th in the league defensively now, in points-per-game against, with 23.6.
