Philadelphia Eagles have three of the worst contracts in the NFL

Can you guess which ones? Bill Barnwell of Grantland recently posted his annual NFL All-Bad-Contract Team and it happens to feature three Philadelphia Eagles players as well as one former player. Yikes. Two of the players who made this list were signed by the Eagles this offseason. The first is running back DeMarco Murray "Contract Flaw: Paying for the OutlierI wrote all about why the Murray deal was paying for an unrepeatable 2014 back in March. In a year, it will be clear whether Murray was establishing a new level of performance (and health) or whether Chip Kelly bought high on a...

Eagles believe DeMarco Murray is the best man for their plan

It seems a sure bet that DeMarco Murray, if healthy, will thrive in the Eagles offense. How could a 27-year-old running back who rushed for a league-high 1,845 yards with a north-to-south running style ostensibly suited to Chip Kelly's schemes be anything but successful?

What Does Gavin Escobar Do For The Dallas Cowboys? (Part II)

The consensus has been that Gavin Escobar was a wasted pick. Looking through the lens of the Dallas Cowboys' impressive comeback victory against the Seattle Seahawks shows otherwise. What if I told you that Gavin Escobar was a, if not the, key player in the game-winning drive against the Seattle Seahawks in 2014? He never touched the ball on that drive. Everyone remembers the amazing Romodini on 3rd and 20. Some will remember that the next three plays were Demarco Murray for 25, 6, and, finally, 15 yards to score. But how many knew that Gavin Escobar was on the field for the entire...

Eagles' Chip Kelly, Sam Bradford, and DeMarco Murray rank among NFL's Top 100 influential people

Can you guess which three? The MMQB has been running an offseason series focused on the top 100 most influential people in the NFL. The list isn't limited to just players; it also features coaches, reporters, owners, and so on. A total of three members of the Philadelphia Eagles franchise made the final list. Checking in at No. 58 is Eagles running back DeMarco Murray. Here's what Emily Kaplan had to say: "The five-year, $42-million contract DeMarco Murray signed with the Eagles included at least one unfortunate stipulation: an inextricable link to LeSean McCoy’s nasty Philadelphia...

Eagles News: DeMarco Murray is a top five running back in Madden NFL 16

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 7/22/2015. Let's get to the links... 10 reasons the Eagles will be a dumpster fire this season - PhillyVoiceOver the weekend I did some research on Sam Bradford, and it turns out that he tore his ACL. Twice!  After doing some more digging, I learned via several credible sources close to the team that Chip Kelly knew about Bradford's injury history when he traded his existing starting QB, a second round pick and other stuff for Bradford, while taking on his $13 million salary. Wait... What? Chip knew about this?!? Top 5 Running Backs in Madden NFL 16 -...

DeMarco Murray vs. the "Curse of 370"

There's a popular narrative that DeMarco Murray is spent after 392 carries (plus 44 more post-season) and 70 pass targets in 2014. Apparently, he's doomed by "the curse of 370." Does that hold up? When the Eagles signed DeMarco Murray at top dollar as a free agent to replace LeSean McCoy, there was a lot of skepticism. He was written off as used up and injury prone. FootBallDocs.com said that the Cowboys "road [sic] him into the ground like a rental car." We can dismiss the "injury prone" label right now, because Murray had his career year in 2014, playing all 16 games after all of...

In the Demarco Murray vs. Le'Veon Bell debate, 2015 will provide the ultimate answer

Did Demarco Murray benefit from one of the best offensive lines when he was with the Dallas Cowboys, and will Le'Veon Bell be able to duplicate his 2014 successes? And who is the better back? 2015 will provide the ultimate answer to these questions. While searching the internet recently, I stumbled upon one of the many rankings submitted by large football websites, and this list was the best running backs in the league today. As an editor to a Pittsburgh Steelers website, and a fan, I wanted to see where Le'Veon Bell ranked. He was ranked No. 3. LeSean McCoy was 2nd and DeMarco Murray was...

The Cowboys Don’t Need DeMarco Murray To Have A Strong Running Game

The Cowboys success in 2014 was largely attributed to the team’s ability to be dominant in the running game. And while one of the pieces is gone, many others still remain. At some point in the season the answer to the big offseason question, "was it DeMarco Murray or was it the offensive line" will be revealed. The Cowboys running attack turned a big corner in 2014 as the team showed great improvement over the last three seasons: Year YPC (rank) Attempts (rank) Yards (rank) 2012 3.6 (30) 355 (31) 1,265 (31) 2013 4.5 (8) 336 (31) 1,504 (24) 2014 4.6 (3) 508 (3) 2,354 (2) In...

Dallas Cowboys News & Notes: Joseph Randle A 1,000-Yard Runner?

Happy 4th of July! Bob Sturm: Cowboys will regress on ground, but it shouldn’t be ‘horrific’ | Dallas Morning NewsSturm offers up a few thoughts on the running game: I think DeMarco Murray was perfect for this offense. He was a great player that has already been forgotten by some who have run him down. But, the Cowboys should be able to survive as they have a very impressive offense and while they will regress on the ground, it shouldn’t be horrific at all. I think they will put more back on their QB, but he seems up for it. And La’El Collins should impact things quite a bit,...
