What team has won the most super bowls
Talk about a hangover. Eagles fans are stumbling along, halfway through the season, with waning good feelings about the defending Super Bowl champs being 3-4 to start the season. The latest FanPulse survey revealed that just 38 percent of Eagles fans were confident about the direction of the team right now. So what’s wrong with the Eagles? You can point to a few different things. Big plays are one problem. The offense was the 15th best at generating them last season. This year, they were 22nd prior to a Week 7 loss to the Panthers. On the other side of the ball, the defense was the 4h best at preventing big plays; they’re 28th this year, so far. As you can see, it’s just a lot of blah on both sides of the ball. Carson Wentz is getting better since his return in September, but he’s still having a little trouble closing out games. He was 23-for-27 with 281 in the first three quarters of last week’s loss, but he was 6-for-9 with 29 yards and only two … [Read more...] about NFL Panic Index: Just how bad is the Eagles’ Super Bowl hangover?
Congratulations to all of Eagles nation for making it through yet another preseason. It's never an easy task to go from the excitement of football returning to the "Are we there yet?" mentality of the fourth preseason game, but we are through to the other side. Christian Hackenberg will never pollute your television screen again. A lot of uncertainty remains down at the NovaCare complex, even as plans for the Week One opener against the Falcons begin to take shape. Doug Pederson will allegedly decide on his starter for the first game sometime today, but the outside world will be kept in the dark until the last possible moment. Carson Wentz's readiness is the week's big story without a doubt, but with Alshon Jeffery likely to miss time and other contributors sitting out large chunks of the preseason, it could be a tough start for the Birds. It's still full steam ahead for Howie Roseman and Co., as they attempt to finalize a roster suitable for a Super Bowl defense. The Eagles have a … [Read more...] about What they’re saying about the Eagles: Predictions for the final 53-man roster are in
It's a new year and a new team, so there's no time for celebrating old titles by Cody Benjamin 51s ago • 1 min read The Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl LII title will live on as maybe the greatest achievement in the history of the franchise, and it's still pretty fresh for the City of Brotherly Love considering it went down just six months ago.One of the most respected leaders of that championship Eagles team, however, would prefer if everyone playing for Philadelphia forgets all about that Super Bowl win. Immediately.Malcolm Jenkins has seen firsthand what it's like for a city to win its first Lombardi Trophy -- twice. He did it with the New Orleans Saints in 2010 and again with the Eagles in February. So he knows the importance such a feat holds. But he also knows that, if the Eagles want to have any chance at repeating in 2018, he and his teammates need to make sure they're not resting on their laurels.Sometimes that means moving past the balloons … [Read more...] about Malcolm Jenkins wants the Eagles’ Super Bowl banners removed from the locker room
Vikings general manager Rick Spielman headed into the offseason with one very big mission. The Vikings have gotten some strong one-season performances from their quarterbacks over the past decade. Brett Favre (in 2009) and Teddy Bridgewater (in 2015) made the Pro Bowl. Sam Bradford set an NFL completion percentage record in 2016. Case Keenum led Minnesota all the way to the NFC Championship Game last season. What the Vikings haven’t had at quarterback is stability. They haven’t had a regular starting quarterback for more than two straight years since Daunte Culpepper manned the spot from 2000-04 before suffering a knee injury midway through the 2005 season. “We’ve got a very good defense, we’ve got a lot of good offensive weapons, but we haven’t been able to stabilize the quarterback situation,” Spielman said last month at a Vikings charity golf outing. In their quest to do that, the Vikings elected not to re-sign Bridgewater or Bradford, who … [Read more...] about Five players who can make the Vikings’ Super Bowl dreams come true
