  1. Eagles are a study in 'miscalculation'

    Dan Graziano

    Amid all of the perfectly justified rip jobs and sky-is-falling coverage of the Philadelphia Eagles' latest loss, this short item by Jeff McLane caught my eye. He's got someone with the Eagles telling him Andy Reid's bye-week firing of defensive coor...

  2. Asante Samuel ready for Philly return

    Dan Graziano

    So, as you'll surely remember, just before the draft in April, the Philadelphia Eagles traded cornerback Asante Samuel to the Atlanta Falcons for a seventh-round draft pick. They did not do this because they didn't like Samuel, or because they didn't...

  3. The NFC East: Living in the nickel

    Dan Graziano

    One big reason cornerback Terrell Thomas is important to the New York Giants is that the Giants really like to use defensive backs. The Giants learned earlier this week that Thomas' latest knee injury would not require surgery and that he should be a...

  5. Wandering Nnamdi Asomugha

    Dan Graziano

    Saw this story in this morning's Philadelphia Inqurier on Nnamdi Asomugha working the slot corner position Thursday in Philadelphia Eagles practice, and I'm sure my first thought was probably the same as yours: Didn't they trade Asante Samuel so they...

    Dan Graziano

    Three thoughts as training camps open around the NFL: One thing of which I'm certain: The Eagles will dazzle in camp. You're going to hear and see a lot of stuff about how great quarterback Michael Vick looks, how focused DeSean Jackson is now wit...

  8. Vick's not the only Eagle under pressure

    Dan Graziano

    The Philadelphia Eagles' Michael Vick is under the most pressure of any player in the NFC East this year -- and the most pressure of any quarterback in the entire NFL. I have written this many times and will continue to write it because I believe it ...

  10. Like Osi, Mike Jenkins is basically stuck

    Dan Graziano

    Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday the team isn't going to trade disgruntled cornerback Mike Jenkins. We didn't post on it here because we already knew this. Everybody already knew it. Even Jenkins, though he's let it be known he's unh...

  13. Mel's final mock: He makes my trade!

    Dan Graziano

    Mel Kiper's final mock draft is out, and I cannot contain my excitement. Mel has broken his longstanding rule about not predicting trades in mock drafts, and he has put a trade into his projections. What's exciting for me is that it's the same trade...

  14. Eagles' Samuel trade is another 2011 move

    Dan Graziano

    Traditional trade logic does not apply to the Asante Samuel trade. Yes, the Philadelphia Eagles have enough good cornerbacks to allow them to make this deal, but this isn't a case of dealing from a strength to address a weakness. The Eagles aren't we...

    Dan Graziano

    The draft used to be the part of the offseason that confused me. Not why it happened, but the extent to which the hype exceeded the quality and the value of the thing itself. And while that may still be the case with the draft, it is no longer the m...
