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).

The Eagles Offseason Moves

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth

So much has happened this month in the NFL world, and the 2018 League Year just began! But if you’re like me, everything else has been put on the back burner whilst you’re stuck reliving Super Bowl LII over and over and over and over again – and that’s perfectly normal.

The world champions – Philadelphia Eagles (that has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?) have been pretty busy as of late and in case you’ve missed out on anything, here’s what’s been going on.

My long overdue thoughts on the Super Bowl

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxana Herrera // @rxnlzbth

Eagles – 41 Patriots – 33

I have been MIA because I have been on cloud 9. I literally have not watched or paid attention to anything else other than reliving Super Bowl LII since February 4th. If it wasn’t for my phone ringing with notifications of the latest news in sports, or the world, I would have no clue what is even happening. But, I didn’t want to let February go by without giving my thoughts on the best game ever in the history of football (I SWEAR I’m not being biased).

As I mentioned earlier, I have watched the game over and over and over. In fact, I’ve watched it so many times, my two-year-old son can call out the plays. No, I’m kidding, but my four-year-old son can.

Seriously though, in the history of football plays, was the Philly Special not one of the greatest, gutsiest calls ever made?! My eyes were on quarterback Nick Foles the entire play and I started to panic seeing him go behind the right tackle because I was afraid the clock was going to wind down, but then the ball snaps, and it’s a trick play, and Oh. My. Goodness…Foles is in the end zone?? I mean, that was just nasty. Beautiful, but nasty.

Patriots come up short in SBLII

Official Patriots Reporter

By Traci McCartney // @traciamc

New England fans know what it’s like to lose again. The Tom Brady led Patriots came up short in their 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII on Sunday. Favored by almost everyone in the media and everyone polled, the underdog Philadelphia Eagles, with backup quarterback Nick Foles, outcoached and outplayed the defending Super Bowl champions.

Was I surprised? No. The Eagles had a Cinderella feel to this season. When Carson Wentz got hurt and Foles came in, a lot of people counted them out. They never counted themselves out. It reminded me of another backup who ended up coming in after a season ending injury to the starting quarterback and took his team all the way to the Super Bowl – and won.

And now here that same quarterback was, 5 Super Bowl wins later, looking for his 6th. But it wasn’t meant to be – not this year. Continue reading “Patriots come up short in SBLII”

Love letter to the Philadelphia Eagles

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxana Herrera // @rxnlzbth

Dear Philadelphia Eagles,

I met you almost 15 years ago. Donovan McNabb introduced us and it was love at first sight, for me anyway. I thought you felt the same; I was sure of it, especially with the great season in 2004 that resulted in a Super Bowl appearance. I thought that was our moment. I thought that would seal the deal. Alas, what started was a roller coaster of emotions, highs and lows, and major sacrifices were made that tested my love for you, my loyalty to you.

I’ll admit, throughout the years I found myself questioning us. I looked around me and saw so many fans throwing their rings in my face, and yet here we were, ringless, with no sign of that changing in the distant future. After Andy Reid left, I was so confused. I thought we were happy. But he was battling personal issues and you decided it would be best if he focused on them on his own so we gave him his space. And I trusted you with that. It hurt like hell when he quickly moved on to someone else and found success.

NFC Champions: Philadelphia Eagles!

Official Philadelphia Eagles Reporter

By Roxaane Herrera // @rxnlzbth

RESULT: Eagles – 38       Vikings – 7

Sunday night’s game could not have gone any better for the Philadelphia Eagles. Quarterback Nick Foles threw for 352 yards, completing 26 passes of 33 with three touchdowns AND had a QB rating of 141.1 by the end of the game.

That’s the Eagles’ backup quarterback, by the way. The same guy who everyone wrote off, including (some) fans. The same guy who everyone doubted and quickly turned away from and refused to take seriously.

Last night, Foles played the best game of his career and despite a shaky and inconsistent first few games as Carson Wentz’s backup, he came through when the team needed him the most and did so beautifully.

Vikings miss the mark–Eagles Fly to Super Bowl LII

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman//@WandaW63

Eagles 38 – Vikings 7

It was supposed to be a battle of the NFC backups. A true redemption story of two backup/starter/backup quarterbacks in Case Keenum and Nick Foles. All season the Minnesota Vikings held the title of the number one defense in the NFC and entering this matchup as they were the favorite to win. But it was the Philadelphia Eagles defense that pressured Keenum and kept wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Theilen at bay.

NFC championship game preview

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaane Herrera//@rxnlzbth

 

Both NFC divisional games were the edge of your seat entertaining. It was heartbreaking for the Saints.  Neither team lost by a mile, neither lost embarrassingly, neither lost because of mistakes (well, that can be subjective, I guess).  Both teams played great football and did everything they could to win. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough and now we are near the end of a spectacular season.

I mean, who predicted the Jacksonville Jaguars would actually make it this far?

Still not over the win

Official Eagles Reporter

By Roxaan Herrera // @rxnlzbth

Eagles 15 – Falcons 10

What. A. Game! I admit I shed a few tears out of sheer relief after that game.  It was such an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. 

Not to be a negative Nancy, but I have to point out the obvious.  Playing like he did the first half, quarterback Nick Foles, will not be able to get away with that against the Minnesota Vikings. Luckily, the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense came through and it resulted in a win.
