From last night.

Safety Dance - Iggles Blitz
More than a few people saw this move as a sign that the Eagles aren’t happy with Ed Reynolds. That isn’t necessarily true. As Chip Kelly pointed out in his PC today, the only way to add a player from someone else’s PS is to put them on your active roster. If the Eagles wanted to add Couplin for the offseason and future development, they had to put him on the roster. That was the only choice. Kelly’s explanation does make sense.

All-22: Why the Eagles’ Offense Got Shut Down - Birds 24/7

Over the last nine years, the Eagles have managed to sweep the season series against the Cowboys just twice – in 2011 and 2006.

The Eagles Are Doomed - The 700 Level
The Eagles lost on Sunday, to Seattle, bringing their record to 9-4. But if you think about it, other than the Colts and maybe the Cowboys, the Eagles really haven't beaten any good teams at all. In fact, do you realize that if you throw out their nine victories, the Eagles are 0-4 this year? Who wants to root for an 0-4 team?
