Naturally, many expect Bradford to carry the torch until Wentz is ready. And thus few are talking about the team’s other experienced, handsomely-paid quarterback, Chase Daniel. But it’s important...

Parse the Schwartz, please… Eagles new DC shakes things up…

I love new Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’ approach which is a no-bull**** take on making the defensive unit a difference-maker in 2016. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a Billy Davis hater— I recognize Davis had to cow-tow to Chip Kelly’s insanely paced offensive game plan and had his defensive unit on the field for far too many plays in 2015.  Davis did the best...
