Last night, DeSean Jackson got fed up with the questions asked by reporters after the game and just walked out of the interview. It signed that he might have a frustrating season for a lot of reasons since he experienced a miserable season of the Philadelphia Eagles in the form of a 31-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Embattled coach Andy Reid was asked if his team was even invested at this point of the season and if Jackson was essentially a decoy. DeSean Jackson looked more fed up than anybody as he caught only four passes and ignored quarterback Vince Young on the sideline. Continue
Losing 31-14 to the Seattle Seahawks takes a new level of mistakes for the Philadelphia Eagles. The Seattle Seahawks and their hard-running back Marshawn Lynch could not be stopped by the falling defense of Vince Young, DeSean Jackson and the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night. Seattle’s hard-charging running back bulled through Philadelphia for 148 yards and a pair of first-half touchdowns. Moreover, David Hawthorne returned the third of Vince Young’s four interceptions 77 yards for a score. Playing in front of a national audience, the Eagles had no fight, an threatening sign for embattled coach Andy Reid as he has done little this season to impress management or fans. Continue
In their previous six games, the Eagles had awful performances. However, since the squad which many had expected finally arrived Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field, couldn’t have come at a better moment. The Cowboys and Eagles faced off on Sunday Night Football this week, and it was the rare midseason occasion where it felt like there was something bigger on the line. The Philadelphia Eagles may have saved their season with a blowout win over the rival Dallas Cowboys on October 30th. Continue
Detroit Lions running back Jerome Harrison almost finished the deal to the Philadelphia Eagles this week, but the trade was canceled when Harrison failed a physical that may save his life. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Eagles team doctors discovered a brain tumor when they examined Harrison to complete the trade process. The brain tumor is considered treatable and Harrison, who will not play again this season, will visit more physicians this week. ESPN reported that the long-term prognosis for both his life and career “appear to be good,” but ESPN didn’t include the explanation about the type of Harrison’s tumor or what the treatment he has to take.

Pro Bowl receiver Steve Smith who suffered an injury had finished a micro-fracture surgery in December. The finish of the surgery seemed to indicate the upcoming play of the player for the Giants on the next season league. However, he apparently has signed a one-year deal on Wednesday with rivals the Philadelphia Eagles just two days after visiting with Giants’ staff. The contract was made just hours after coach Tom Coughlin reported how his players were excited to see Smith back in the building. Therefore, the Smith’s decision stunned the Giants since the team is about to welcome Steve Smith back to the headquarters.
In a Wednesday evening, at the conference call, Smith said statements that even worsen the shocking condition. He stated, “This is a business, man, and it’s tough. The Eagles, they really pushed hard.” The additional statements of Smith were also written on his Facebook page. He wrote, “I will always cherish my time in NY and the super bowl victory.. This was obviously not an easy decision for me or something i ever expected but unfortunately the business aspect proved that the eagles wanted me to be part of their organization MUCH more than the Giants did.. A special thanks to my WR buddies, coach Gilbride, all of u amazing fans on here, and the entire giants organization for drafting me.. Time for a new beginning…”
