NFL adopt a “next man up” philosophy when it comes to handling Injuries. Both the New York Giants (4-9) and the Washington Redskins (3-10) are well versed in that practice this season.
Some of the best NFL players have something more: a big mouth. Here are 5 NFL loudmouths who back up their words on the field.
The New York Giants fresh off their 30-17 victory over the Houston Texans, face a short work week as they travel to FedEx Field to take on division rivals, the Washington Redskins. The Redskins lost a close affair to the Philadelphia Eagles 37-34 in a game marred by a fight and two ejections.
Sorry, Jets fans. The Redskins are getting a three-time Pro Bowl receiver with speed, someone who singlehandedly can change a defense’s approach.
NJ.com released an explosive report Friday that said the Eagles were worried about Jackson’s ties to reputed Los Angeles gang members.
The latest development comes on the heels of a report saying the Eagles were prepared to release Jackson if a trading partner — cough, Jets, cough — couldn’t be found.
The Jets head coach delivered quote after quote on Tuesday, sounding as confident as ever after finishing last season with a surprising 8-8 record.
For all his semantic subterfuge, foibles, and faux pas, Woody Johnson was a breath of fresh, honest air on Sunday.
Speaking at the NFL meetings Sunday, Jets owner Woody Johnson said “we’re looking at a number of players, including DeSean.”
Their fans want DeSean Jackson in the worst way. The Jets? We’ll see. New York is reportedly one of several teams that have contacted the Philadelphia Eagles about the talented-yet-volatile wide receiver.
The Jets could use a headline-grabbing move, and the Eagles are reportedly fielding calls on three-time Pro Bowler DeSean Jackson. Sound like a fit to you?
A last-second field goal by Shayne Graham brought an end to the first season of the Chip Kelly era as the Saints left Philadelphia with a 26-24 victory in the NFC Wild Card playoff. The time for season-long evaluations will come over the coming week, but for now let’s take a quick look at how the Eagles performed in this game.
The New York Football Giants hope that earning their first victory of the season on Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings will be a springboard to greater success in the second half of the 2013 NFL season. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles found out on Sunday that they are not ready for prime time, as the Birds fell to the rival Cowboys 17-3. These two longtime rivals renew pleasantries in Philadelphia this Sunday.
There are a large number of high-profile players who, due to injuries or poor performance, disappointed last season. Here are 10 who are poised to return to form this year.
No tackling is new to the Eagles, but it’s become normal around the NFL. Teams have been trending toward less physical camps in recent years, especially after the new collective bargaining agreement limited the number of practices and hitting.
