Sam Bradford‘s pregame shower speech has gotten a good deal of attention this week — in large part because of the chosen location, but also because it was the first real piece of evidence made public suggesting that the quarterback is starting to find his footing as a leader on this team.
Speaking to the media for the first time since Sunday, Bradford was asked about the significance of that moment prior to the Saints game.
“It really wasn’t that big of a deal,” Bradford said after practice Thursday. “And to be honest, that was just kind of between us. I don’t need to put that out there. If you weren’t in that locker room or in that shower, you’re probably not going to know what was said in there. But it was just something I felt like kind of the time was right, something needed to be said. Hopefully it got the guys fired up.” Read more »
It looks like the Eagles could be down two of their top inside linebackers for Sunday’s crucial game against the Jets.
Billy Davis that Kiko Alonso, who is believed to have suffered a partial tear of his left ACL, is still in the evaluation process. “We’re crossing our fingers and hoping everything turns out for the best. We’re unsure about him,” said Davis, “but for this week I don’t expect him to play.”
Mychal Kendricks might not be available either. He sat out Tuesday’s practice along with Alonso as he nurses a hamstring strain.

Chip Kelly spoke to the media this afternoon a day after the Eagles’ 20-10 loss to the Cowboys. Here are some highlights from the conversation, including why he was embarrassed and what they need to change going forward. Read more »
Chip Kelly addressed the media prior to Thursday’s practice. Before we get into it, a big thank you to Josh for crushing it over the last few days in my absence. Per your suggestions, I’ll consider treating him to a Del Frisco’s steak to show my appreciation. (On second thought, I have another mouth to feed now, so hopefully he’ll settle for a Shake Shack burger.)
Also, Tucker’s last day was Saturday. He did a tremendous job for us. Big things ahead for the T-Man, and we wish him well. Adam Hermann will be jumping in with both feet on Monday.
