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?

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.

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:

Yet another NFL Draft has come and gone which means we are getting that much closer to the opening of the 2018 NFL season. The Philadelphia Eagles only had five picks this year, fortunately, there is still Undrafted Free Agency to look forward to in the coming months.

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).

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.
