Amazing tales of the Philadelphia fan with the impaled Indian head - Puck Daddy - NHL  - Yahoo! Sports
"I'm a big Philadelphia Eagles fan, so I actually take the head to the Redskins games. It was never even meant to be for the Blackhawks," he said. "And when the Cowboys come to town, I put a cowboy hat on it and write 'Deadboys.'"

Paul Domowitch: NFL rule puts some rookies behind the 8-ball | Philadelphia Daily News | 06/08/2010
AS A SEVENTH-ROUND pick in the April draft, safety Kurt Coleman already is facing an uphill battle to win a roster job with the Eagles. Thanks to the NFL, that hill already is a lot steeper for the Ohio State product than it needs to be.

With McNabb shadow still looming large, Kolb faces tough task
You walk through the Philadelphia Eagles' practice facility at NovaCare Complex, and decades of history -- captured in black-and-white and color photographs on the walls -- are everywhere. Poster-sized newspaper and magazine pages, with photos and headlines documenting memorable Eagles moments, are everywhere. It doesn't take long to find the first image of Donovan McNabb.

Signs point to players like Charles, Henne having breakout seasons
Kevin Kolb, Philadelphia Eagles, QB: It says a lot when a team trades a franchise quarterback to a division rival and hands the offense to someone who wasn't a first-round pick and has just two career starts.

Baskett: Onside Kick? What Onside Kick?
What’s funny is I haven’t heard one thing about the onsides kick. People know me, especially the people in Philadelphia, and they know me more for my special teams play than anything. One play does not make a career and one play does not change a game.
