Graham to replace Babin in Eagles' lineup
Jason Babin's Eagles departure will open the door for former 13th overall pick Brandon Graham to start Sunday night at defensive end.

Babin’s release puts all Eagles on notice, as Philly’s season to forget continues - The Washington Post
"I’m excited," Graham said. "I can’t wait to go out there and make plays. That’s all I’m here for is to make plays and to go out there and do what I do. That’s what I’m going to do. Everybody right now is fighting with pride. It’s all about pride right now and how we’re going to finish these last five games. I know I’ve got pride and I know my teammates do, so we’re going to go out there, going to give it our all and whatever happens, happens."

Eagles' backups want more time on the field
Some of the Eagles' young backups are eager to get on the field and are hoping for a chance to get more playing time with the team still struggling.

Babin's exit doesn't seem like much of a surprise
THE SUBJECT, obviously, was hunting. The season began in Pennsylvania the day before, on Monday, but carnivores Trent Cole and Jason Babin did not participate.

Eagles Notebook: Eagles' offensive line could be shuffled again
In any case, rookie QB Nick Foles is almost certain to make his third successive start Sunday night in Dallas, possibly behind yet another offensive line permutation. With center Dallas Reynolds held out of practice by an ankle sprain, left guard Evan Mathis moved over to center. Danny Watkins, the right guard who left his starting spot with an ankle injury five games ago and seems to have been replaced by Jake Scott, manned Mathis' usual position.

Bradley Cooper talks Philly fans and Eagles - ESPN Playbook - ESPN
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being "you tattooed an Eagle on your ass and throw snowballs at Santa Claus," how Eagles-crazy are you? "I come at it from a different viewpoint. The psychological and emotional beating that I take from the experience of following them makes it, for me, an internal struggle, rather than causing harm to others. In terms of emotional fandom, I’m a 10. I won’t talk to you for a while, or I’ll get in an odd, emotional argument with someone who may have made a lighthearted joke about the Eagles. "
