Eagles News: Evan Mathis is a Super Bowl champion

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 2/8/16.

Let's get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...

DeMarco Murray for Nick Foles trade would make sense for the Eagles and Rams - PhillyVoice
On the surface, the idea of bringing Foles back makes no sense whatsoever, and there have since been conflicting reports from other local reporters saying that the Eagles have no plans to bring back Foles. Still, let's dive in for a minute. Yes, you read the headline correctly. Acquiring Nick Foles, via a trade, actually makes some sense for the Eagles. Please stop dialing the mental institution and hear me out.

Nick Foles? - Iggles Blitz
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely looking forward to more of this nonsense for the next 30 or so days. Howie Roseman will use the media to get info out in the open. Some of this is true and some not. The goal is to either confuse other teams on what the Eagles want to do or to help create leverage with agents when it comes to bargaining on contracts. So you have Howie playing his games and agents playing their games. Add in the fact that the top free agent QB is Sam Bradford of the Eagles and you can see where this is going to be Rumorgeddon.

The great Nick Foles panic of 2016 is over - Daily News
But fret not, long-suffering Birds followers: A league source, very close to the situation, told the Daily News that no decision has been made on Bradford, who can't possibly be tagged before Feb. 16. And more crucially, the source said there is no chance the team will reacquire Foles, though the source acknowledged that Pederson -- the Eagles' quarterbacks coach in 2012 when Foles was drafted in the third round, though Pederson was hardly in charge of picking players -- likes Nick, who made the Pro Bowl in 2013, the first year of the Chip Kelly offense.

News, Notes And A Super Sunday 50 -
Will the Eagles add a young quarterback in the offseason, in the draft or in free agency? It's obviously a huge question, so remember that both Sam Bradford and Thad Lewis are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents. It makes sense that, at some point, the Eagles would bring at least one more quarterback on board. Of course, it all depends on what happens with Bradford and, to an extent, with Lewis. That is all part of head coach Doug Pederson and his coaching staff's "evaluation" that is ongoing. It's really hard to get a feel for what's going to happen at the game's most important position for the Eagles, but we know this: Free agency starts on March 9. This roster is going to take shape in a very short period of time.

Super Bowl by the numbers: No offense, no problem for Broncos - CSN Philly
The Broncos did less of something Sunday than any Super Bowl winner in history. Something sort of important in football. Gain yards. The Broncos beat the Panthers 24-10 in Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., despite gaining just 194 yards of offense. That is the fewest – by far – of any Super Bowl winner. The previous record for fewest yards by a Super Bowl winner was 244, set in 2000 by the Ravens in their 34-7 win over the Giants in Super Bowl XXXV in Tampa. So the Broncos broke the record by 50 yards.

Super Bowl 2016: Trash-talking Denver Broncos blast Carolina Panthers for not playing 'a real team' -
arolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton didn't have much to say after the Denver Broncos completely shut him down in a 24-10 victory in Super Bowl 50. But the Broncos defense? Oh, they were plenty chirpy about the league MVP's performance and a Panthers team that, in their estimation, hadn't played a "real team" all season. Those were the exact words of Denver linebacker Brandon Marshall, who was standing a few feet away from Super Bowl MVP Von Miller in a jubilant winning locker room on Sunday.

Marshawn Lynch retired during the Super Bowl in the most perfect way possible - SB Nation
Lynch earned the nickname "Beastmode" for his running style. He gained 9,112 yards during his nine-year career and probably broke just as many tackles in the process. Whether it was the most exciting four-yard run you'll see or his more famous runs, Lynch was always a spectacle when he touched the ball. His most famous play became known as the "BeastQuake" but it was only one of a host of memorable plays.
