As we look ahead to tonight’s matchup against the Steelers, here’s an updated projection of the Eagles’ 53-man roster.
Here’s a position-by-position breakdown of what we saw from the Eagles’ offense against the Patriots, after having re-watched Friday night’s game. Read more »
Alex Henery got one opportunity on Friday night, and missed badly. His 47-yard attempt in the second quarter never had a chance, sailing wide right.
“You’ve got to make 47-yarders in this league,” said Chip Kelly afterwards.
Henery made seven of 10 kicks between 40 and 49 yards last season. He had only one miss from that range over the previous two seasons.
Is Kelly confident that Henery is the answer at the kicker position? Read more »
If memory serves, I have outdueled the venerable Sheil Kapadia each of the last two years in this exercise. I think we can all agree that the chances of a three-peat are high.

Teams must trim their rosters to 75 on August 26th, then down to 53 on August 30. Here’s how I see it playing out heading into the team’s second exhibition game:
Ifeanyi Momah says that when he looks back at the tape of the joint practices with the Patriots from a year ago, it makes his stomach turn.
“I looked terrible. During one-on-ones I didn’t catch a single pass,” said Momah. “Looking back at that film, it gets me kind of upset. I made sure [on Tuesday] when I came out here during one-on-ones, I tried to beat up the DBs and I caught every pass that came to me.”

Chip Kelly likes to say that the Eagles only have a seating chart, not a depth chart, this time of year.
Luckily, here at Birds 24/7, we don’t have to abide by the same rules. So now that we’ve seen all of the spring practices and have our eyes on the start of training camp (July 25), here’s our stab at what the offensive depth chart looks like (we’ll do the defense tomorrow). I tried to make this as useful as possible, so there are explanations below. Read more »
James Brady was around for the first Ifeanyi Momah transformation.
The two have been friends since they were teenagers. They went to different high schools in Long Island but the quarterback and receiver regularly trained together. As kids with little cash and big goals, they used to jump from gym to gym around the neighborhood, taking advantage of the free introductory memberships until it was time to find the next deal.
When they weren’t playing on the same night Brady would go and check out Momah’s games, and remembers the gigantic jump he took once he injected some swagger into that large frame.
