I was very fortunate this year to be able to get both my personal and work calendars to sync up allowing me to attend the 2014 NFL Draft.  The event did not disappoint.  The host New Yorkers were accommodating and the city’s atmosphere was electric in anticipation of the big day.  What the draft has [...]

As the 2014 NFL Draft approaches, Philadelphia Eagles GM Howie Roseman addressed the media yesterday on an assortment of topics including the team’s lack of picks (six in 2014), trading up, and drafting a wide receiver.

With the 22nd Pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the Philadelphia Eagles Select

Philadelphia Eagles Still Have a Defensive Gap

One could argue that the safety position for the 2013 Eagles was their weakest group.  Philadelphia gave up the most passing yards per game (289.8) and allowed a league worst 4,636 total passing yards.  Teams were effective throwing the ball on the Eagles throughout the year, and much of that is attributed to the shaky [...]

RECAP: Philadelphia Eagles Need to Re-sign These Free Agents

Before I do, however, it needs to be said that I think Philadelphia has [...]
