Eagles Fall to 0-2

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

by Roxanne Herrera // @rxnlzbth

Yes, yes, I know it’s “only” preseason, but the way the defense played last night reminded me of the way they played in the Super Bowl – they let Patriots’ QB Tom Brady get away with the short pass plays and let them gain 5+ yards. Fortunately, Philadelphia Eagles won’t play them this season, but the defense needs to clean that up before the regular season begins.

Eagles can go 0-4 these next two games, it won’t mean they aren’t ready for the 2018 season. I think head coach Doug Pederson is working out the kinks and being his usual conservative self, while (starting?) quarterback Carson Wentz is still healing from his torn ACL and waiting to hear when he can start playing 11-on-11.

Until then, (backup?) QB Nick Foles is preparing himself just in case. Foles sat out the first preseason game with back pains, but played the first half against the Patriots and finished 3-of-9 with 44 yards and one turnover. He suffered a shoulder injury sometime in the first half.

After the game, Foles said he felt “pretty good” but told reporters he will undergo tests on his shoulder today.

Dallas Cowboys: 5 Quick Questions

Official Reporter Miami Dolphins

By Lisa Johnson // @LJ1303 

The Dallas Cowboys used to be “America’s Team.” With great names like Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith in the not-so-distant past, and disappointing seasons from the likes of Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, the pressure is definitely on for Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott to lead the team back to glory.

I took some time to talk about the upcoming Cowboys season with Michelle Jinks // @TheSportsJinks who is a huge Cowboys fan and, well, She Knows Routes!

Reflections on the New York Giants first preseason game

Marquita Quinones
NY Giants Reporter

By Marquita Quinones //@Latinlove729

Although the New York Giants preseason opener resulted in a 20-10 loss against the Cleveland Browns, there were some positive takeaways to consider, even with the newness of the team.

Keep in mind the Giants had a major turnover of personnel, so there is obviously going to be some fine tuning that will need to happen throughout the season. Also keep that in mind New York fans shouldn’t have expected them to come out in their first preseason game looking like the Super Bowl champs of 2012.

One thing to consider in that preseason game is the fact that the best player, Odell Beckham Jr, didn’t play and most of the starters were only seen for a few downs. The biggest impact was running back Saquon Barkley and his explosive start. Managing to get 39 yards on his first touch is a feat that the New York Giants have not seen in a few years. It does look as though the void of a running back has been filled.

The New York Giants need an Impressive Start

It’s not the will to win that matters – everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.” Paul “Bear” Bryant

Most people would agree that a great start is necessary for any success.  When it comes to football, you really need a great start. Then, you need to continue to be great all the way through until you finish with a successful season.

The New York Giants are looking to do just that. This Thursday they will be facing the Cleveland Browns. Both teams had a rocky start last season as the Browns finished 0-16 and the New York Giants weren’t much better with a 3-13 record. With the addition former Minnesota Vikings Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur as head coach, and a new defensive coordinator in James Bettcher; the Giants are looking to turn things around.

CEO Jeffrey Lurie Explains Making of the Super Bowl Ring

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaane Herrera // @rxnlzbth

There’s no denying that the owners of any professional sports team genuinely loves their team. They invest in their team, they market their team, they are proud of their team and they stand behind their team even through the darkest of times.

But since I’ve only followed one CEO, one chairman, for the past 15 years, I think it’s safe to say that Philadelphia Eagles owner, Jeffrey Lurie, takes the cake. I can prove it by how much effort he put into designing the Super Bowl LII championship rings. Read on to find out the amount of love he poured into each and every one.

A busy month: Recap of April for the Philadelphia Eagles

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

 

By Roxaane Herrera//@rxnlzbth

The Philadelphia Eagles were busy making (money) moves in April. Obviously, the NFL Draft was the number one priority for all NFL teams, but looking back on last month, the Eagles were busy. Signing players left and right, releasing and/or trading players, bringing back favorites, and saving money all in the name of defending the championship title.

Here’s a rundown of what happened in April:

Eagles Draft: Day 1 Review

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth

For the first time in a long time, I went into the NFL Draft with a clear mind. I was excited to see where these young men would end up without the worry of another team picking up a player the Eagles wanted. I had zero problems with being the 32nd pick because that was yet another reminder that the Philadelphia Eagles were the Super Bowl Champions. Okay, okay. Enough bragging.

After a long wait, Eagles fans learned that the 32nd draft pick was traded to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for two picks this year (numbers 52 and 129) and a 2nd round pick for 2019. This gives the Eagles a 2nd round pick for this draft which they previously didn’t have.

Eagles Preseason Schedule

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera//@rxnlzbth

 

Yes, I know. Preseason doesn’t matter because it doesn’t count and doesn’t show the true potential of the players because either they’re not playing or because they aren’t giving the game 100% so that they won’t risk injury.

 

However, with the release of the preseason schedule, it means that we are just that much closer to the 2018 NFL season!

Eagles’ NFL Draft Needs

Official Eagles Reporter

by Roxanne Herrera // @rxnlzbth

It’s NFL Draft month! Every year around this time, I tend to take a brief break from football because of the draft. I know very little about college football and because of that, I don’t have much to contribute to conversations about who my team should pick up or the countless mock drafts that are drawn up.

I’m a little embarrassed about it and have started to watch NCAAF these last few years so that I can know what everyone’s talking about, but even with its popularity, I can’t seem to find much interest in college sports, in general.

However, in being so focused on my team and following the latest news on the Philadelphia Eagles, I do form my own opinions on what positions they need or should add based on who they’ve let go and what they lacked in the previous year(s).
