Hi Philadelphia Fanatics

Here’s some information that I think you will enjoy taking a look at.

How I became a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles

This will get annoying with everyone submitting, but for an entry I’m doing it.

I grew up in upstate NY (Binghamton NY area). There were no firm ‘Teams’, you had some Bills fans, some Giants fans, some Jets fans, but there were more Cowboys fans than anything (I was born in ’87 so it makes sense there were a lot of band wagon fans in the 90’s).

My uncle was a military guy and moved around a lot, whenever he would come back to town we would get a big box of my cousin’s clothes. My cousin was a big eagles fan so a great deal of the clothes I got were Eagles shirts/jerseys. Being younger, I looked up to my cousin a lot and with all the gear already in hand became a die hard birds fan from as far back as I can remember. My first memory is crying as a kid when Cunningham and the Eagles lost in a playoff game. I always go to a couple games a year and represent working in NYC now.

It’s funny how you find Eagles fans everywhere, some of my best friends from Ithaca College and University of Rochester were Eagles fans. The picture below was from 2008 when I broke my leg. There was no way I was skipping the game, and Megan in the pic below gave me the awesome paint job! I think I painted 2 entire rows in the stadium as I was sweating by the time I got to the Upper Level seats. Some of you will remember that game as Dawkins Big Ben Fumble!

Brandon Graham holding out for new Eagles contract? Conflicting reports

OK.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham is holding out for a new contract, according to a report from the Inquirer’s Jeff McLane.

Defensive end Brandon Graham has stopped attending Eagles workouts and is expected to skip organized team activities later this month – and also possibly mandatory minicamp in June – until the Eagles renegotiate his contract, two NFL sources said.

Except he’s not, according to Jason La Canfora.

FEATURED NEWS ARTICLE: Potential Veteran Running Back Options

Featured Philadelphia Eagles Article

Hey Eagles Fanatics

Here’s an article that I think you will like taking a glimpse at.

Potential Veteran Running Back Options

With the current state of the Eagles running backs, I’m going to be taking a look at some veteran free agent options, and some potential trade options.

Free Agents:

Chris Johnson

Yes, Johnson’s best days are obviously behind him. Johnson has been with the Cardinals for the past two years, and really seemed to step up when David Johnson got injured. Giving Johnson a deal for a year certainly wouldn’t hurt, but I wouldn’t expect him to take most of the snaps at running back, I would say about half at best. While that isn’t ideal for a “lead back”, it’s better than having three or four running backs equally splitting snaps.

DeAngelo Williams

Williams, like Johnson, is on his way out of the league. Williams has been up and down the past few years, last year he only had 3.5 yards per carry, but in 2015 he had 4.5. Williams is definitely an intriguing option, and with his age I couldn’t see him expecting any more than a one year deal from any team.

LeGarrette Blount

Last year Blount had 1,161 yards and 18 touchdowns, but only had a 3.9 average yards per carry. I think if the Eagles want to split reps between the running backs, it would be worth it to bring in Blount and use him as their power guy primarily. With 5,000 career rushing yards, Blount is a proven running back, however one would have to wonder if being in the Patriots’ system made him look better than he actually is.

Christine Michael

Since entering the NFL, Michael has jumped from team to team, although he has ” >”>
