NFC East professional writers, I mean…and they’re not pulling any punches. Maybe they do reflect some of the inner hubris of the teams they cover. But when you are supporting a new offense with a new head coach and a triumvirate of quarterbacks lined up to lead you into the unknown, I guess you should expect this kind of doubt from the oppositional media. I don’t get the cockiness...

Could Chase Daniel play over Carson Wentz?

The Philadelphia Eagles took a chance on quarterback Carson Wentz with the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Why the Philadelphia Eagles Should Re-sign Bennie Logan
