The Finale - Iggles Blitz
The run defense was a big part of the win. Bennie Logan played a strong game and had a TFL, his 10th of the season. Can we finally stop with the questions about adding a massive NT? Logan is a good player and should get better if he stays healthy.

Chip Talks Foles, Quarterbacks - Birds 24/7
What you haven't heard, from the owner or the head coach, is a commitment to Nick Foles. The 25-year-old is 14-4 under Kelly and put forth an extraordinary statistical performance in his first year with the head coach before taking a step backwards this season. Foles is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is scheduled to make a base salary of $660,000.

Season ends, autopsy begins: how to fix the defense? - Daily News
The quarterback is a big part of this, and likely the biggest part -- and if it feels as if we already have talked this one to death, well, let’s just say that the conversation has not even started yet.

There was Ro Romano, the stadium security officer who had been assigned to the Sanchez family detail, who had walked him to his car after every home game.

Chip Kelly's changes can't just be personnel - CSN Philly
We all know change is imminent. The corners will change. The safeties will change. The quarterback position will almost certainly undergo some, if not sweeping, changes. Change happens every year, especially for teams that don’t make the postseason, even for teams like the Eagles that finish 10-6 and still don’t get in. But it’s not just personnel that will undergo heavy evaluation this offseason.

An intimate look at a middling NFL player's goals - The 700 Level
It's easy for fans to sit at home and criticize the players we watch every Sunday. In fact, it requires no prerequisite skill to do so. But sometimes we forget these players are actual human beings, attempting to do their very best and thrive in a league full of very talented individuals.
