Where do the Philadelphia Eagles go from here?

Eagles 34  Giants 13

After a rainy night in the Meadowlands, Eagles managed to get an easy win. Now what? I’ll go ahead and volunteer to be a Negative Nancy today because, quite frankly, I am not happy with this win.

After two disappointing back to back losses, a win was desperately needed. Especially against a division rival, and a team with a losing record at that. It just isn’t a sweet victory as say beating the Minnesota Vikings – a team that the Eagles demolished last year in the NFC Championship.

Newly signed and returning wide receiver Jordan Matthews has been another weapon for quarterback Carson Wentz. He added 26 yards for the team, but I think having more options downfield will only help Wentz. WRs Nelson Agholor and Alshon Jeffery continue to shine this season, and having Jeffery back has been a major threat for defenses.

Recapping the Eagles first two weeks

Roxaane Herrera, Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaane Herrera // @rxnlzbth

After Week 2’s debacle against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Philadelphia Eagles decided they needed to bring starting quarterback Carson Wentz back where he belongs. According to head coach, Doug Pederson, Wentz’s return “wasn’t planned”.  It just so happened that he was medically cleared following a loss that Eagles have only themselves to blame.  We’ll just go with what Pederson says.

Backup QB Nick Foles will forever be able to call Philadelphia home. Fans will undoubtedly be grateful for eternity since he brought the first-ever Lombardi trophy to Philly.  But even a Super Bowl MVP is not immune to the fans’ criticism and Foles has received a lot in these first two games.

Turnovers plague Eagles in third preseason game

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth 

Yes, I know it’s only preseason. Yes, I understand head coach Doug Pederson isn’t going to waste his best plays on games that essentially don’t matter. And yes, I realize that the players aren’t necessarily going full force during the games.

But, goodness gracious, can the Eagles show a little glimpse of the Super Bowl winners they are?

I don’t want to get too carried away here but turnovers and the offensive line are two key components which need improvement before the season opener, which is in less than two weeks. I am not sure where to begin with assessing last night’s “game'” if that is what we are calling it.

We can start with the score. I mean, 5-0? What is this, baseball?

Browns vs Eagles: Defense and Injuries

Cleveland Browns Reporter

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8

Browns 5 – 0 Eagles

Last night’s preseason match-up between the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles and the Cleveland Browns was anticipated to be a huge offensive blow out.  Instead, it became a tale of defense and injuries.

Browns cornerback Denzel Ward suffered a lower back injury in the first quarter that kept him sidelined for the remained of the game. He will undergo an MRI today.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor, after scrambling on a 4-and-goal play, landed awkwardly on his wrist and is sent to the locker room for evaluation.  In what fans are calling “True Hue Fashion,” he returned to the field and was put back into the game for three more series. It was clear that he was not 100% and that the wrist was bothering him, clear at least to fans and the Eagles defense. No one – myself included – can figure out why on earth the named starting QB for the season would be rushed back into a preseason game! Continue reading “Browns vs Eagles: Defense and Injuries”

Doug Pederson is writing a book, so what?

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth 

As I’m scrolling through social media last night, trying to catch up on all sorts of the day’s news, I come across a gem of a tweet from Fox Sports’ radio personality Colin Cowherd.

For some reason, he has an issue with Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach, Doug Pederson, writing a book this off-season, Fearless. I’m assuming this book is based on the road to winning the Super Bowl (I’m not sure yet, I haven’t read it) and Cowherd has taken offense to that.

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.

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.
