The Linc - Steelers writer suggests what Eagles trade for Le’Veon Bell could look like

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 10/19/18. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... 3 trades that make sense for the Pittsburgh Steelers - Behind The Steel CurtainTrade 1: Le’Veon Bell to the Eagles for Ronald Darby and a fourth-round pick. I don’t know about this one, but it seems to benefit both teams. Bell and Darby are both in contract years, and neither team is likely to retain both of these players due to cap constraints or the overall position of the contract disputes. The Eagles may not be considering a run at Bell, but if they want to win the Super Bowl again,...

Cardinals vs. Broncos: Thursday Night Football

Cardinals vs. Broncos: Thursday Night Football

Everything you need to know about this week’s edition of TNF. Week 7 of the 2018 NFL season officially kicks off tonight. The Arizona Cardinals (1-5) are hosting the Denver Broncos (2-4). It’s an interconference matchup between two bad teams. As far as the Philadelphia Eagles’ rooting interest goes, I think a Cardinals win is preferable. It’d be good to see Denver get ahead of the Giants in the 2019 NFL Draft order since they clearly need a new quarterback. On the other hand, the Cardinals losing could make them more likely to be sellers at the NFL trade deadline. Patrick Peterson,...

Eagles Injury Report: Updates on Lane Johnson, Jason Peters, Jalen Mills, more

Update on Philadelphia’s injury situation. The Philadelphia Eagles released their second official injury report on Thursday in advance of their Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Previewing the Eagles’ Week 7 matchup. The Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) and Carolina Panthers (3-2) are set to play on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field.

Let’s take a look at the answers. 1 - In a recent CSR column about Ron Rivera, you wrote the Panthers “are winning more games than they are losing, but they are not playing winning football.” Can you sum up your frustrations...

With Vaeao going unclaimed on waivers, he reverted to Philadelphia’s injured reserve list. Vaeao reportedly suffered a quadriceps injury during the Eagles’ win over the Giants on Thursday Night Football. Despite playing the sixth most snaps (40.8%) of any Eagles defensive...

The Linc - Zach Ertz making a case as the NFL’s best tight end

The Linc - Zach Ertz making a case as the NFL’s best tight end

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 10/18/18. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Gronk? Kelce? Right now, NFL’s top tight end may be Zach Ertz - ESPNThe name on that jersey doesn’t get as much attention as others at the position: Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce. But Ertz is making a case for why he deserves top billing. Through six weeks, he leads all tight ends in targets (66) and receiving yards (480) and is second in the NFL in receptions (48) behind only Minnesota Vikings receiver Adam Thielen. His 48 receptions are the most by a tight end through six games since...

Alexander. Johnson is missing time due to a high ankle sprain. One would think he’ll be OK for Sunday’s game since he was able to tough out a Thursday night matchup last...

Which Panthers player would you steal for the Eagles?

Which Panthers player would you steal for the Eagles?

Who are you taking? A common post the SB Nation NFL team sites have done throughout this years asks the question: “Which [opposing team’s] player would [your favorite team’s] fans take?” With the Philadelphia Eagles set to play the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, it’s time to address the question and familiarize yourself with the opponent’s roster. OFFENSE Cam Newton is off to a solid start. The Panthers’ starting quarterback is completing 65.9% of his passes for 1,158 yards (6.8 yards per attempt), nine touchdowns, four interceptions, and a 93.2 passer rating (16th out of 34...

Eagles work out two former 2015 NFL Draft picks

Eagles work out two former 2015 NFL Draft picks

Philly looking for secondary help. The Eagles hosted four free agents for tryouts in Philadelphia on Tuesday: linebacker B.J. Bello, cornerback Dexter McDougle, cornerback Quinten Rollins, and safety Ibraheim Campbell. As we know, the Eagles signed Bello to their practice squad and McDougle to their man 53-man roster. It’s worth highlighting the two players the Eagles didn’t sign — Rollins and Campbell — because they were both selected fairly high in the 2015 NFL Draft. The Packers drafted Rollins in the second round (No. 62 overall) while Campbell went to the Browns in the fourth...

Eagles bring 2017 corner back, waive Destiny Vaeao, and make practice squad changes

The Eagles made some roster move on Tuesday evening. The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced some roster moves on Tuesday evening. First, the team signed free agent cornerback Dexter McDougle. The Eagles originally traded Terrence Brooks to the Jets for McDougle prior to the final preseason game last summer.

Eagles have done very well in games officiated by the ref for Sunday’s Panthers matchup

Another factor Philly has working in their favor. The Philadelphia Eagles have a few notable advantages heading into their Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers. The rest difference is one of them. The Eagles last played on Thursday, October 11 while the Panthers played on Sunday, October 14. Home field advantage is also significant with the Eagles winning 17 out of their last 20 meaningful games at Lincoln Financial Field. And then there’s another factor that certainly wasn’t working in the Eagles’ favor during last year’s game against the Panthers: officiating. In 2017,...
