Birds 24/7 is seeking an intern for the spring semester.

The candidate will help Tim and Josh update the site, work on special projects and assist with social media. Motivated interns may have opportunities to produce original content, but this is not a writing internship.

The ideal candidate will be extremely detail-oriented and have experience in online journalism. Deep knowledge of the Eagles and the NFL is a must. Knowledge of SEO, web headline writing, Photoshop, WordPress and other content management systems, and professional use of social media is a plus, but not required. Read more »

Merry Christmas To Our Birds 24/7 Family

I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

It hasn’t been the most blissful of Eagles seasons but your loyalty to the team and this site has remained strong. That’s a testament to the best fans, and the best online community, in the business.

Thank you for welcoming Josh with open arms. We parted ways with one of the top football writers in the country this year in Sheil, but the rookie has shown up strong and will earn similar accolades before long. I continue to be proud of the work that is churned by Josh and Adam, two of the bright young stars in the industry.

Big things ahead. Here’s wishing everyone a blessed holiday and a prosperous 2016 — both on the gridiron and otherwise.

— Tim

The Eagles won’t take the field until the sun has set, but we’ve got a novel way for you to kill that time: with more football!

Two pertinent NFC East games take place at 1:00, with the Giants (6-7) facing off against the Panthers (13-0) and Washington (6-7) hosting a simmering LeSean McCoy and the Bills (6-7).

That’s right. Week 15 is lit.
