Is Robert Quinn the Eagles’ new Ryan Kerrigan?

Is Robert Quinn the Eagles’ new Ryan Kerrigan?

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Might not only be a bad thing ... The Eagles announced that they were placing defensive end Robert Quinn on injured reserve on Tuesday. According to a report from NFL insider Tom Pelissero, Quinn is having a knee scope after getting hurt in practice last week and is expected to miss playing time the next four weeks. Sadly, Quinn’s absence won’t really be noticed as he’s been a non-factor since coming to Philly. In the five games that he’s played with the Eagles he has two tackles, two quarterback hits and zero sacks. On BGN Radio...

The Linc - Giants writer says it’s “laughable” to think NY can stop the Eagles’ rushing attack

The Linc - Giants writer says it’s “laughable” to think NY can stop the Eagles’ rushing attack

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 12/9/22. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Giants-Eagles Week 14: 4 things to know - Big Blue ViewIf the Vox Media writing platform supported it, I would probably insert a long string of laughing — or maybe more appropriately — crying emojies here. On paper, the idea that the Giants could stop, or slow, the Philadelphia rushing attack is laughable. The Giants are, honestly, terrible on run defense. They give up 5.1 yards per rushing attempt, 30th in the league, and are 26th in yards rushing...

Thursday Night Football: Raiders vs. Rams

Photo by Harry How/ Watch this week’s Thursday night matchup here! Week 14 will get underway with a Thursday Night Football matchup featuring the Las Vegas Raiders (5-7) on the road against the Los Angeles Rams (3-9). The Raiders lead the all-time series between these teams, 8-6, but the Rams have won their two most recent meetings.

The last time the Rams had home field advantage was back in 2014 in St. Louis when they absolutely demolished the...

Saquon Barkley added to Giants injury report ahead of Eagles game

Photo by Al Bello/ PLUS: Updates on Philadelphia’s injuries ... and a practice squad signing. The Philadelphia Eagles issued their second official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 14 game against the New York Giants. One player DID NOT PARTICIPATE in practice: Shaun Bradley. Bradley was also listed as a DNP for Wednesday’s walkthrough. Seems like the Eagles’ leader in special teams snaps might miss Sunday’s game. Two players were listed under LIMITED PARTICIPATION for non-rest reasons: Quez Watkins and Kyzir White. All accounts indicate Watkins...

Who is your favorite player on the 2022 Eagles?

Who is your favorite player on the 2022 Eagles?

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ No shortage of options to pick from on a likeable team. It’s been some time since we’ve ran a Question Of The Day post, so, let’s get a discussion going in the comments below: Who is your favorite player on the 2022 Philadelphia Eagles? I imagine there are going to be a lot of Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown answers. And understandably so. They’re among the best players on the team. But this question is about favorite, not necessarily best. For me, I have to go with Brandon Graham. I know I asked about this year but the Super Bowl strip sack...

How Nick Sirianni doesn’t outsmart himself

How Nick Sirianni doesn’t outsmart himself

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ In the NFL not dumb = smart There’s an article that I come back to every once in a while for big picture purposes. It’s almost a decade old and has nothing directly to do with football, but its application is evergreen. Really, it’s just a line from it. You gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Or to put it another way, being really smart is hard. Being not dumb is considerably easier, and has great benefits. It raises your floor, reduces your mistakes, and makes it hard for the opposition to beat you by capitalizing...

Eagles rookie storylines entering the Giants game

Eagles rookie storylines entering the Giants game

Photo by John Jones/Icon Sportswire via Week 14 preview. The Eagles can officially lock up a playoff spot with a win over New York on Sunday. The Giants are no slouch and Brian Daboll’s squad will be geared up for a tough game. For the Eagles, they could be relying on their rookies quite a bit to help deliver a win. Here are some storylines to monitor! Do we see Jordan Davis get a snap bump? The Eagles eased Jordan Davis back into the lineup last week. The rookie first rounder only played six snaps on defense, but made an impact when he was on the field. Overall the...

NFL Week 14 2022: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants

NFL Week 14 2022: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ After defeating the Tennessee Titans to advance to 11-1, the Philadelphia Eagles are embarking on a three-game road trip. First up is an NFC East matchup at MetLife Stadium against the New York Giants. Under new head coach Brian Daboll, the G-Men got off to a much better start than anyone would’ve reasonably expected. Since opening 6-2, however, the team has gone 1-3-1 in their last five games. The sole victory was a one-score home win over the worst team in the league, the Houston Texans. The Giants are going to be hungry to get a win to avoid...

Eagles Defense All-22 Film Review: Takeaways from the win over the Titans

Eagles Defense All-22 Film Review: Takeaways from the win over the Titans

Photo by Andy Lewis/Icon Sportswire via In the review of the Eagles' offense, I said this was about as dominant a performance as you will see against a good defense. Well, this defensive performance was pretty incredible too. Eagles Defense The EPA per-play numbers are dominant. The 19% early rush success rate is absurd. Going into this game, the Titans' EPA was -0.004 which is bad, but -0.21 is horrendous. To put this into context, the worst offense in the league (Texans) has an EPA per play of -0.14 and a success rate of 38.5%. The Titans' numbers today were...

Ranking 2020 NFL draft QBs: Burrow, Tua, Herbert, Hurts - ESPN+The first off the board is the same guy who came off first in 2020: Joe Burrow. His accuracy, decision-making and ability to process quickly is extraordinary for a player this early into his career. He has recovered from the serious knee injury he suffered as a rookie, and we’ve seen him make major strides. He has been playing at a superstar level longer than any of the other...

Nick Sirianni addresses report linking Odell Beckham Jr. to the Eagles

The Eagles’ head coach talked about their current WR group but still didn’t give a direct answer.
