Backup QBs - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
One thing doesn’t get talked about very much in regard to Nick Foles. He missed games in 2012 and 2013 due to injury. He has yet to prove that he can stay healthy for 16 games. With that in mind, do you trust Matt Barkley or Mark Sanchez to start a game or two and win? Let’s for get the nightmare scenario of Foles going down for the whole season. Let’s focus on a game or two. That’s a more reasonable and interesting question. Any team that loses their starting QB for the whole year is in trouble.
Eagles' Logan gets a little bigger - Zach Berman, Inquirer
The 10 pounds Bennie Logan added this offseason beefed the Eagles' starting nose tackle to around 317-319 pounds, depending on the day. Even though that is a little shy of the prototypical nose tackle's weight, the team is confident in Logan, a second-year lineman, and has pledged its support for him.
Eagles Wake-Up Call: Bar Set High For Maclin - Sheil Kapadia, Birds 24/7
Asked about how long it takes for players to recover from ACL injuries, Roseman said earlier this offseason: "I think it depends on the player. We saw Adrian Peterson come back after six months, and did he win the MVP award after that? So I think it depends on the genetics. And all I know is what our doctors are telling us, and he’s doing a great job in his rehab. We fully expect him to be ready to go once the season starts."
Alex Henery Looks To Get His Groove Back - CMac, PE.com
The ball boomed off the right foot of kicker Alex Henery and sailed through the uprights with plenty of distance to spare. With no referee at this Organized Team Activity, guard Evan Mathis signaled with his arms that the kick, which was from around 49 yards out, was good. The sight of the referee's arms going sky high following a Henery kick was customary in the kicker's first two seasons in the league. Henery set a franchise record in his rookie season by connecting on 88.9 percent of his field goal attempts, which at the time was also the NFL rookie record. In 2012, Henery set another franchise mark by hitting 22 straight field goal attempts as he posted the fourth-highest field goal percentage in team history.
Taylor Hart: From Duck to Eagle - Joe Kearns, Fishduck.com
Chip Kelly didn’t just bring his offensive scheme with him to the Philadelphia Eagles. For the second time in his coaching career, he changed a 4-3 base defense to his 3-4 scheme. To ease this transition in Year 2, Kelly drafted a player in the fifth round who he relied on during the defensive scheme change at Oregon: defensive lineman Taylor Hart. Hart’s arrival is a sign that the Eagles’ defensive scheme, like its offensive counterpart, has its roots in Oregon.
Here is Johnny Manziel riding a swan float with a bottle of booze - Rodger Sherman, SB Nation NFL
Float on, Johnny Football. If there is a moment of bliss greater than floating on an inflatable swan while drinking champagne, we have yet to find it.
