Sports Illustrated: DeMarco Murray is basically Ray Charles playing running back - PhillyVoice
DeMarco Murray is blinder than a bat, or so I've been told by Cowboys fans ever since the Eagles signed him during free agency this past offseason. He doesn't see holes, he doesn't make the most the of his opportunities when he gets into the second level of the defense, he should have had 4000 yards instead of 1800+, blah blah blah. That rhetoric was further emphasized by Murray's backup, Joseph Randle, who said during OTAs that Murray left "a lot of meat on the bone," which means he didn't gain as many yards as he should have.

Herremans: Mathis ‘Brought It Upon Himself’ - Birds 24/7
"I think it's kind of unfortunate for Evan. I think he kind of brought it upon himself, though, by not showing up. We expect them to stick to the contract that they offer us, that they sign us to, and they expect us to do the same.

Mathis cut again shows Kelly's belief in system - Inquirer
The latest discarding by Chip Kelly has resurrected the familiar trope about the Eagles coach - that he whacks those who dare to cross him, all in the name of "culture over scheme." But what that line of thinking often overlooks is Kelly's stringent belief in his offense. It was likely a confluence of factors that led to the release of Evan Mathis on Thursday. But Kelly would have never parted with the two-time Pro Bowl guard unless he was convinced the offense could function at a high level with what on paper looks like a weaker offensive line.
Vinny Curry comes to terms with business of NFL - CSN Philly
Vinny Curry is in a good place. For a while, for a good portion of his days in Philadelphia, that wasn’t always the case. Part of that was owed to his inconsistent playing time and the incessant and attendant rumors that he might get traded to a team where he’d be a better fit. It bothered him — until, one day last year, he resolved that it shouldn’t. As Curry came off the practice field at the NovaCare Complex following OTAs this week, you could hear him talking and laughing with several teammates. He had a smile on his face. The irony is that Curry didn’t really start having fun playing football until he accepted that football is a business.
