In the latest episode of Press Coverage, Tim and Josh discuss whether Mark Sanchez can keep the Eagles afloat. Plus, what to expect this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Read more »
In addition to suffering a concussion, an MRI confirmed that Sam Bradford separated his left shoulder Sunday against the Dolphins, according to Ed Werder.
However, Bradford did sit out of practice today, in addition to Ryan Mathews (concussion) and Jason Peters (back). Peters did practice yesterday, leading a reporter to ask Chip Kelly today if Peters suffered a setback.
“I guess so,” Kelly said. “I just know he can’t go today.”
Kelly said Bradford and Mathews, both of whom suffered their concussions in the Eagles’ 20-19 loss to the Dolphins, had yet to be cleared through the league’s concussion protocol, which meant they were not allowed to practice with the team.
Even though the Birds didn’t come out on top, there was a strong sense of unity among fans at the Linc yesterday.
Some paid their respects by flying French flags. Others made signs, including this one which reads “We are all French:”
There was a moment of silence before the kickoff of every game in the NFL yesterday. If you listen closely, the one at the Linc punctuated that trademark Philly attitude (warning, NSFW): Read more »
On first down, with 10 yards to go and a little over 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Mark Sanchez thought he saw something he could exploit.
In part, he was right. As he looked over the Eagles’ offensive line, making sure the linemen were set and ready to snap the ball, he saw a Miami player running, out of the corner of his eye, off the field.
This, he thought, was his chance to catch them out of position and hit a big play.
The Eagles are finally back in a 1:00 Sunday slot, and they’re playing in Philadelphia for the first time in nearly a month as the Dolphins pay a visit to the Linc. We’ll pop in with some updates and thoughts from time to time. Feel free to join the conversation in the comments section below.
The NFL Films crew does good work, week in and week out, and this time around they captured DeMarco Murray shouting out Cowboys plays during the Eagles’ win over Dallas on Sunday night.

The Philadelphia Eagles were once owned by a very nice man named Leonard Tose who smoke, drank and gambled away all his money. That’s the story in Tose: The Movie, a weird, entertaining 15-minute 30 for 30 short by Mike Tollin.
Tollin, who previously did the 30 for 30 feature-length doc Small Potatoes: Who Killed the USFL, is a producer and director who’s been involved in lots of sports-themed films and TV shows like Varsity Blues, Radio, Arli$$ (as well as an Oscar-nominated Hank Aaron documentary). His mini-feature is framed around his attempt to get a narrative film made about former Eagles owner Leonard Tose. Read more »
In the latest episode of Press Coverage, Tim and Josh discuss what they expect to see from the Eagles in the second half of the season, and give their predictions for the Birds’ matchup with the Dolphins.
When the Dolphins faced the Bills in Week 9, Miami’s defense may have taken an unexpected look into its future without defensive end Cameron Wake.
Head coach Dan Campbell didn’t like what he saw.
Miami’s defense allowed Buffalo to pile up an eye-popping 266 yards on the ground, despite LeSean McCoy exiting the game with a shoulder injury in the second half.
