Are you on the Wentz Wagon yet? If not, hop on!



What an ugly fun win.

John & James have a great power of picking against the Eagles and the Eagles winning. Time for this trend to continue.

The defensive line and the defense really stepped up after two weeks of up and down play

Rodney McLeod is an absolute stud and Jordan Hicks played his best game of the season

The campaign 2017 for Jim Schwartz being a head coach is back on.

Marcus Smith is a…. football player?

Josh Huff 89 yard tuddyReporter: "When did you know that you were going score on that kickoff return?"

Josh Huff: "Once I saw him kick it."

Big Balls Doug is a lot fun. Pederson tried to take advantage of the Vikings mistakes all game long

Pederson to Wentz at halftime: This is about you managing the game

Carson Wentz looked like a rookie on Sunday. But one of the most impressive things about Wentz is when a play breaks down, he always makes something out of nothing.

What a miserable first half of football. 5 total turnovers and the first time in NFL history that an NFL game went into halftime at 11-3

The Eagles came out in the 2nd half and ran the ball. The offensive game plan was a lot different than what we expected.

We have been trying to figure out who this Eagles team is, but it’s really all predicated on how well the defense plays. It’s still a defensive team, that hasn’t changed since training camp.

Get to the next series, get to the next play.

Ron Brooks looks to be done for the year and according to Geoff Mosher, Aaron Grymes is coming to the facility.

HUGE praise to Big V for turning it around this week against a really good front 4.

The offensive line, despite the shuffle played pretty well this well this week.

Sam Bradford looked like the Sam Bradford that we were all worried about coming into this season. An atrocious game thanks to Schwartz & co.

THE EAGLE BLITZED! We need to see more of that.

The 3rd and 1 & 4th and 1 stops… what was Norv Turner thinking?

The Birds are 4-2 heading into Dallas week! This is gonna be a fun.

Final thoughts & more!
