Wulf's Den: A QB Class For The Ages -
Great column as always but the video is a must-watch. Bennie Logan is the best.

Fan-Demonium: Talent Won't Be Enough -
The focus in Philly will be the state of the offensive line. We don't know anything for sure at this point, but Dennis Kelly could be the left guard and Andrew Gardner will probably be the right tackle. Newly signed Wade Smith could factor in at guard, but might be too new to get on the field this quickly. No decision has been announced yet. We'll just have to see how that situation plays out. The Eagles have to find five guys to work well together because the Colts are an aggressive, blitzing defense.

Three-And-Out: Eagles-Colts Predictions - Birds 24/7
If you were to hook Chip Kelly up to a lie detector test and ask him when he really learned who Nick Foles is, I believe he'd say the Raiders game in 2013. Foles was coming off a nightmarish start against the Cowboys where he suffered a concussion. He sat out the following week, but then was thrust back into action. Yes, it was only the Raiders, but he responded with a seven touchdown performance and never looked back the rest of the season.

Jason Kelce Says NFL Is ‘Lying’ And ‘Misleading People’ - CBS Philly
“They [NFL] haven’t given like a concrete explanation as to what they’re doing.” Kelce told Angelo Cataldi and the 94WIP Morning Show. “I mean, the whole thing has been just really mishandled. And then, now all the sudden with tape coming out—I’m sorry, but I can’t believe that an organization with billions of dollars and this tape is running out there through law enforcement and through media outlets that they somehow couldn’t get their hands on the tape. They’re saying that they couldn’t get the tape, I don’t know if I believe that. They made a mistake by only suspending him [Rice] for two games.”

Eagles' Cox and Kendricks growing into defensive cornerstones - Inquirer
Cox laughed when recounting the ride. His recollection was similar - two players from different parts of the country who knew little about each other, both riding the speculative confidence of the predraft hoopla.

Mosher's scouting report: Eagles-Colts - CSN Philly
Odds are pretty good for the Eagles at some point Monday night to have the lead over the Colts, maybe even late in the third or early in the fourth. Problem is, odds are just as good that they still won’t win. That’s just how the script seems to be written for Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

The Evster reviews the PYT wait staff - T7L
As you already know (or maybe you don’t, maybe you live under a rock, or are my mother, and are reading this because you want to take an interest in your son’s little writing hobby, and if so, hi Mom, and yes I know I owe you a phone call, and yes I’ll come over soon to help you with your printer, please calm down), LeSean McCoy left a measly 20-cent tip on a $60 food tab earlier this week.

New NFL drug policy will turn players into pot addicts - SB Nation
The NFL is on the verge of utter chaos with its misguided new drug policies that will only decrease the quality of play, and increase the level of addiction.
