After a crazy offseason thus far for the Eagles, Jeff Lurie broke his silence at the NFL owners meetings in Arizona on Tuesday. He covered a range of topics, including why Chip didn’t want LeSean McCoy and what led to the shakeup that left Howie Roseman without control of personnel.
Lots to cover, so let’s get to it.
A full transcript of Lurie’s remarks, for your reading pleasure. – philly.com Continue reading ‘Morning Muse: Jeff Lurie talks on how Chip Kelly plans to take the Eagles ‘from good to great’’
You remember it well. Last Sunday. Jets at Eagles. Eagles blow out of the Jets. It was a wonderful moment in the 2011 season.
The usually formidable Jets were clearly not themselves last week. Sure, they faced an Eagles team who have harnessed their collective talent and are now firing on all cylinders. But the team played like there was little substance to their game plan.
Center Jason Kelce may have figured out what happened.
The photographic evidence?
It’s just as well that this monstrous order obstructed Ryan’s view and planning for last week. But we’ll need him to wipe his mouth, clear his head, and FOCUS on beating the snot out of the Giants this weekend. You hear me, Rex?
As we all know, that receipt isn’t a record of an epic Ryan binge somehow obtained by Jason Kelce, it begs the question: Who the hell eats that much food?
Answer: Most of us in the next coming days.
Happy Friday, Happy Holidays, and Go Eagles!

On the eve of the start of the 2011 season for the Philadelphia Eagles, what better time to look at the season ahead for the Birds?
Though I know you will be watching each and every game on the team’s schedule, here are a few that you should circle on your calendars.
Week 3 v Giants (Sunday, 9/25 – 1 pm on FOX)
So many reasons to look forward to this game. First, it is the home opener for the Birds. It’s the 1st game against a division rival. We get to see Steve Smith go out against his former team. New York with a slew of injuries already in the season. And last but not least, any games played against the Giants represent the opportunity to make fun of Eli Manning.
Bring it. Continue reading ‘The Season Ahead: Circle These Games on Your Calendars’

It’s a shame that tonight’s final game of the 2011 preseason at Metlife Stadium, aka the new Meadowlands, (ahh, we have such fond memories from that stadium, don’t we?) doesn’t mean much.
The swagger and bravado of Jets head coach Rex Ryan against the 1oo-million dollar man and his Dream Team. A match made in manufactured media heaven. But alas Mike Vick, now the highest paid player in Eagles history, will not take the field.
We will, however, see how much Vince Young has learned about the Birds’ offense, as he expects to play the first half of the game.
The game will matter for 27 men on the team fighting for their futures in Philadelphia and in the NFL. This final preseason matchup will be used to make decisions about the final Eagles roster. The Birds must be down to 53 players by Saturday, so there will be a flurry of cuts almost immediately after the end of tonight’s game.
