I don't like the players use it as an excuse, but I think that the fact that the Eagles throw so much is part of the reason they lead in drops.

It's kind of like how the Phillies led the NL in...

Look at the Colts/Patriots game from Sunday night. The Colts won by a touchdown despite FOUR PICKS by Brady (two of which weren't really Brady's fault, but that's not the point). McNabb is usually...

There's a frequent poster called "Pat" on Football Outsiders who has repeatedly made the point that McNabb appears to have a mental block when it comes to this particular situation. His instinct...

Football Outsiders was one of the very few sites on the Eagles' bandwagon before the season began, predicting them to be the best team in the NFC East and one of the NFC's best overall.

Total yards allowed are a particularly pointless way to rank defenses, to be sure. Total points allowed isn't much better.

Yeah. Imagine John Madden trying to fellate them both at once.

Seriously, I think an offense designed for two players who can both run and pass (I know, I know, Vick's not a great passer) could be...

I don't think much of Vick as a quarterback in the classic sense, but he's certainly a dangerous player.

But suppose the Falcons drafted a similar player, one of these Mike Vicks that are supposed...

4 years is a long time in the NFL. Says something about the Eagles front office that they've been able to sustain a quality team for so long.

I may be alone in this, but I actually like taking a shot downfield on 3rd-and-inches, as long as you are committed to going for it on 4th if you miss. Even if you're in your own territory. As has...

I think I was right, though. Losing Stallworth didn't hurt at all, and it seemed like the defense did all right until that play where Hood got burned and came up lame.

Hopefully he didn't...
