Morning Muse Mug

Slowly but surely, the Philadelphia Eagles are returning to health. Coming off of the bye, Wednesday’s practice saw the return of LG Evan Mathis, C Jason Kelce, RB Darren Sproles and LB Mychal Kendricks in limited action at practice. That’s gotta make you smile. – Birds 24/7

The Birds’ defense did a phenomonal job of shutting down the New York Giants in Week 6. But we’re still waiting to see consistency out of the D, which is a must if this team is truly going to be a contender. – CSNPhilly  Continue reading ‘Morning Muse: Philadelphia Eagles slowly but surely return to health’

We’re coming to the close of Week 2 in the NFL, and significant injuries have already been unkind to many teams, the Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts included.

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?
