Walking to New Orleans with the Eagles

By: jaxsportsmedia | November 14, 2018 This is THE watershed game of the season so far for the Birds, yet no need to worry or panic. Have some fun with it! In fact, for the thousands of Eagles fans who booked the trip to New Orleans for this game, it will be a festive experience which is perfect for an optimistic approach. Maybe that carries over to the on-field performance? For some reason I can’t get that old Fats Domino song “Walking to New Orleans” out of my head this week.

Eagles depth-chart shuffle to be tested against Dallas

By: jaxsportsmedia | November 9, 2018 What a difference a year makes in the stability of the Eagles’ depth chart! Last season you could pretty much write down in green ink who was playing what position, and in what packages they would play. This year you need to use a pencil with a big eraser to submit the weekly lineup card. Filling in for injuries is always a big part of lineup changes, but this season has tested the limit of that statement. We are way beyond the “routine” injury substitution quota. Add to that variable the fact that...
