Today is big day for the Philadelphia Eagles. It will be the first time that Chip Kelly will lead a full-team practice via OTAs, and it’s the first opportunity media will have to observe first-hand what they’ve heard about.
The super-fast pace of practices. The communications that will change the league, at least according to Brent Celek.
This comes right on the heels of this weekend’s three-day rookie minicamp. Philadelphia’s youngest members will be tired after their crash course but will also be enlivened at the opportunity to now practice alongside their more seasoned teammates.

Another one bites the dust as #2 tight end Clay Harbor was placed on injured reserve by the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday.
Harbor suffered a lower back injury during Thursday night’s game against the Bengals. That game was his first career start, filling in for a concussed Brent Celek. Against Cincinnati, Harbor had 3 catches for 30 yards and, unfortunately, lost a fumble.
The third-year player finishes the year with a career high 25 catches for 188 yards and two touchdowns.
Thankfully for the Eagles, Celek will be back in the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Redskins.
No corresponding roster move has yet been made by the team.
In other injury news from a decimated Philadelphia Eagles offense, LeSean McCoy has been cleared by an independent doctor and returned to practice on Monday. As for whether he’ll play on Sunday, head coach Andy Reid said,
“There’s a chance he ends up playing for us this week. We’ll see how it goes with the practices this week. He practiced (Monday) and did well.”

It’s a sad state of affairs when simply getting a win becomes the goal of a football team. Not multiple. Just one. But that’s where the Philadelphia Eagles found themselves on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Tampa to face the Buccaneers.
Just stop the bleeding of over two months of not winning a single game. After losing eight straight losses, the feeling of winning had nearly been forgotten. But how quickly and gleefully it returned, with rookie quarterback Nick Foles leading two successful drives to bring victory to the Birds.

A few hours before kickoff on Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter cited an NFL source as saying that the Eagles would cut Mike Vick if Philadelphia didn’t go deep into the playoffs this season.
Anyone who pays attention to Eagles football knows that this was something that was already understood. Continue reading ‘Mike Vick the first to go if Philadelphia Eagles don’t make playoffs?’
What happened to last year’s Detroit Lions team? You know, the one that seemingly came out of nowhere to finish the season with a 10-6 record and make it to the playoffs?
That team is now 1-3 and are seeking an answer to that question themselves. More importantly, they want to stop giving people reason to ask it.
For the second week in a row, the Philadelphia Eagles will face a team coming off of its bye and seeking to reclaim its season. The Lions have arrived in Philadelphia rested and ready to roar, and it’s up to the Eagles to quiet their bite at the Linc. Continue reading ‘Lions-Eagles Preview: Taming Detroit’s roar’
