What Evan Mathis Knee Injury: Means for the Philadelphia Eagles? posted on 11/09/2014

Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro guard Evan Mathis appears to be recovering quite well from a medial collateral ligament injury in his right knee that he suffered all the way back in Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

This is great news to Eagles fans and unless there’s an unforeseen setback to his timetable, Evan Mathis is scheduled to return to action Nov. 10.

According to Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com, Mathis was back at practice with the team for the first time since the MCL injury back at the beginning of the season, but since the Eagles organization placed Mathis on the injured reserve list, he is ineligible to return to action whether he is fully healed or not, until the November 10th date.   

November 10th cannot come soon enough for the Eagles, as Mathis’ return will be a huge boost to the depleted Eagles offensive line that also lost star center Jason Kelce earlier this year. The team needs that veteran presence back on the line in order for them to be productive on the ground once again. An O-line needs time and games together to build a bond that is so key when adjusting to multiple blitz looks and defensive fronts in the heat of the game. Also to not leave too much into the hands of their quarterback, who has shown, time and time again, that when he puts too much of the offensive production onto his shoulders, it is usually met with disastrous results.

Another Painful Year For Philadelphia Eagles Fans? posted on 09/26/2014

The Eagles finished last year’s season with a 10-6 record and part of that success was the fantastic play of quarterback Nick Foles. A third round pick in the 2012 Draft, Foles completed 64 percent of his passes, posted 9.1 YPA and an astounding 27 to 2 touchdown to interception ratio.

It’s hard to imagine Foles repeating that kind of performance as the Eagles will have a tougher schedule this year. Plus, he’ll be a target for opposing defenses that  will have the entire offseason dissecting coach Chip Kelly’s offense.  Plus, he’ll have to play without DeSean Jackson, who left the team due to locker room issues and bickering with the coaching staff.

But Foles will have other weapons like tight end Zach Ertz. The second-year pro showed what he could do at the latter part of the season with a 6-57-1 line at Minnesota. Coach Kelly has said that Ertz will be a bigger part of the Eagles offense this year. Foles will also look for Daren Sproles who came from the Saints. While  Sproles is on the decline, he’s still a decent addition to the team.

Painful year for Philadelphia Eagles fans posted on 01/06/2012
It was an interesting and somewhat painful year for Philadelphia Eagles fans, but given that the city’s been on a bit of a roll with sports and the Eagles are still very well setup for the future, fans’ disappointment shouldn’t last too much longer. Heading into the 2011 season, the Eagles signed a number of noteworthy free agents, and seemed primed for a fantastic season, as well as a potential playoff run. In fact, some even went as far as to call the Eagles a “dream team,” and some predicted outlandish things like undefeated seasons and surefire Super Bowl contention. Everything from jersey sales to Philadelphia direct tv action seemed to spike as an always-faithful fan base grew even more excited than usual. Unfortunately, the season didn’t go as planned, and the Eagles wound up missing the playoffs – however, they were still a dangerous team, and here are a few r easons to expect a very good season next year.
