Let's get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...
Bennie Logan, Fletcher Cox Blossoming Into Stars - CBS Philly
"I think Bennie is the most underrated player on this team," Cox said. "Bennie is a great player, he shows it at practice everyday. Ced [Cedric Thorton] works his butt off. It’s just everybody up front, it’s not just us two. Everybody got to work together and I think Bennie is doing a great job and he’s standing out." "Fletcher Cox is way good," Logan said. "I don’t understand why we just now talkin’ about this guy. This guy has been dominating for the past two years I’ve been here. I really don’t know why he doesn’t get the recognition that he doesn’t, but I think Sunday really just put a big spotlight. I told him, ‘Now you showed me what you could do when you play your A game, so now you just gotta do it every game. So if you don’t do it every game, you just choose not to do.'"

Darren Sproles is 5-6 and he stutters – and that may be why he’s such a great football player - PhillyVoice
"I remember the one time when Tank was at the NFL Combine, and he called to tell me when they announced his measurements, 5-foot-6, 180 pounds, he heard some of the NFL owners and some of the coaches actually laughing at his measurements," Larry recalled. "He was real hurt by that. He said, ‘Dad, they were laughing at me, and I’m gonna make them pay. They’re going to be sorry they ever laughed at me.’
How Will The Eagles Defend Beckham? - PE.com
"He’s explosive. He’s a freak athlete," Maxwell said. "He’s just a good football player, man. He does a lot of things well, and he has great ball skills. His run after the catch is good. ... He’s looking at potentially a Hall of Fame career." Defensive coordinator Bill Davis indicated that he’ll use a committee of cornerbacks to cover Beckham, instead of having one cornerback shadow him throughout the game. When the star receiver lines up on the side opposite Maxwell, it will primarily be Nolan Carroll’s job to keep him in check.
Detailed Game Review – PHI 39, NO 17 - Iggles Blitz
BRADFORD – Good game. 32-45-333. 2 TDs, Would have been even better if not for 2 INTs, both in the end zone. The first pick was just a terrible throw. He had Riley Cooper open in the back of the end zone. All Bradford had to do was throw toward the back pylon. Would have been easy TD. Instead, he threw directly to Coop. The line of sight was clear at that moment, but the DB was on the move. Easy pick. The next INT was different. Miles Austin was behind the DB by a step. Sam put the ball low and tried to keep it away from the DB, but the DB made a great play and caught it. Sam should have been more careful, but that was reasonably bad. The first INT was completely dumb.
Eagle Eye: Odell Beckham’s Open-Field Speed - Birds 24/7
Through the first 16 games of his career, Odell Beckham Jr. piled up more receiving yards than any other player in NFL history. His one-handed catches have become things of folk lore, but the most frightening thing about the 22-year-old phenom isn’t his incredible catching ability; at least, not according to the Eagles defenders who face him on Monday night. It’s his open-field speed.
5 things for Eagles to worry about vs. Giants - NJ.com
The Eagles showed in last week's win over the Saints how much much better the offense looks when the running game works. Monday they face a Giants run defense that is ranked second in the league, has allowed just 80.6 yards rushing per game and just 3.5 rushing yards per carry. If the Eagles can't run the ball they may have a harder time on offense than the Giants would without Beckham.
Despite success, rookie LB Jordan Hicks maintaining level head - CSN Philly
We’ve all seen them. Hot-shot rookies who enjoy early success, let it get to their heads, think they’ve arrived, start taking bows, and then forget to keep doing the things that got them in that position in the first place. Think of a rookie who got off to a great start and just as quickly fizzled out, and that’s the likely scenario. Then there’s Jordan Hicks, the biggest surprise of this Eagles season and one of the biggest defensive surprises in the NFL so far this year.
Why tonight's game is a must-win for Eagles - Daily News
THEY HAVE to win this game. Or they're doomed. Getting sick of hearing and reading that? Get used to it. Whether it's phrased that simply, or expanded with a slew of descriptive words, it is the lot of a playoff hopeful team that began its season with three losses in its first four games, two against division opponents. A third loss tonight against the Giants, in a division already so banged up and so mediocre that it accentuates the importance of these matchups, would reduce that hope to a prayer, or even despair.
