By: Gary Splinter
We have one week remaining of the preseason in the NFL, so now is a good time to look at the NFC East in general. Most experts agree that the division is entirely up for grabs one year after Philadelphia was able to make the playoffs under new head coach Chip Kelly. Here is a quick look at each of the other teams, with 2014 regular season projections at the end. Continue reading ‘Cruisin’ around the East: NFC East Predictions for 2014′

Chip Kelly adds to swirl of DeSean Jackson trade rumors

Will DeSean Jackson continue to fly as an Eagle through 2014?

Will DeSean Jackson remain a Philadelphia Eagle through the 2014 season or won’t he? Getting a clear answer to this question is growing stranger—and more exhausting–by the day.

Reports of the Birds’ interest in trading the talented receiver, coming off the best season of his career, have not been clear or consistent.

The NFL’s attempt to invigorate the Pro Bowl by having teams led by Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice has begun, with the draft selection of Pro Bowl players completed on Wednesday night. It remains to see if the elimination of the AFC and NFC designations will add additional interest to the league’s all-star game. For now, a two-day draft to select who among the best will be selected to each team was enacted to try to drum up enthusiasm. Just where did the four Eagles in Hawaii for the game land?

Evan Mathis and LeSean McCoy will be together on Team Rice. They will face teammates Nick Foles and DeSean Jackson on Team Sanders. Foles escaped the embarrassment of being the last player chosen to a team, leaving that honor to former coach Andy Reid’s new quarterback, Alex Smith.

But does any of it matter? Will more people watch—or care? There seems to at least be mild interest in knowing where players wind up and who will be their opponents. Beyond that we’ll have to wait until Sunday to find out.

The Pro Bowl airs this Sunday, January 26 at 7 pm on NBC. Will you be watching?
