Bacon, Eggs and Eagles – Happy Father’s Day!


I’d like to personaly start this post off by wishing all of the fathers out there a Happy Father’s Day! Hopefully you’ll enjoy this day off with a couple of drinks, steaks and time for yourself…or whatever else you may prefer to do on this special day. But there’s only one way to start off your day and that’s with the latest news and articles about your beloved Philadelphia Eagles! You’ll get all that and more in this morning’s serving of Bacon, Eggs and Eagles!

Eagles’ Jenkins becoming a leader on and off the field Zach Berman of

"PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Malcolm Jenkins just started a new period of his life when he hosted his annual football camp last June. One year later, Jenkins led his camp at Piscataway High School emboldened by a season in which he was one of the most important players on the Eagles’ defense and one of the leaders in the locker room.“I remember last year, I wanted to set a good impression in everything,” Jenkins said Friday on the first day of a two-day free camp for nearly 400 children.“I was a new father, I was on a new team, in a new city, doing stuff in business that was new, and I wanted to put my best foot forward. I felt like I did that. Going into this year, it’s really about establishing myself.”"

Bob Grotz: Jenkins conjures up memories of the ‘Dream Team’Bob Grotz of

"PHILADELPHIA >> The culture-beats-talent debate flared up again this week with Malcolm Jenkins using “Dream Team” to silence Eagles beat writers.The Dream Team finished 8-8 in 2011 and out of the playoffs. The New Orleans Saints, with Jenkins in his third season, finished 13-3 and advanced to the second round of the playoffs.Saints culture 1, Eagles talent 0.“Philly proved that when they had the Dream Team,” Jenkins said. “As much as people hate to hear that, it’s not always about talent. You can get the best guys out there at every position and if they don’t jell and they don’t put the team first, they don’t do well."

Kelly walks line between coaching and personnel – Jeff McLane of

"A year ago, some Eagles were unsure who made contract decisions for the team.In December, amid a three-game losing streak, three players sat at their lockers and argued whether it was Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman who had ultimate say over the business side of football operations.Player 1 insisted that Roseman, then the Eagles general manager, controlled the salary cap and contract negotiations. Player 2 agreed but jokingly said a coach who monitors their every move with tracking devices would eventually want complete authority. But Player 3 wasn’t convinced and figured Kelly was already pushing all the buttons."

Power Ranking Every NFL Quarterback’s Supporting CastCian Fahey of

"Evaluating NFL quarterbacks is a complex practice.There are 32 quarterbacks in the NFL, but every single player is unique in what he is asked to do and what kind of support he receives. The specifics of each individual player and their current situations mean that the position’s label is often misleading. You can’t group every player together and rank them as equals.Instead, the minutia and subtleties must be taken into account. To do that, you must understand how to evaluate the quarterback separate from his surroundings but also evaluate his surroundings to understand how they affect the end result."

Eagles 53-man roster projection after OTAs/minicampJimmy Kempski of

"Amittedly, this is way too early to be doing a 53-man roster projection, but since we have six looooooong boring weeks ahead of us with little to no Eagles news, let’s take an early look at what the roster may look like.• Green = Projected starter• Black = Active Week 1• Red = Projected Week 1 inactive"

It’s nice to see Eagles’ players working together both on and off the field. Apparently wide receiver Jordan Matthews helped out safety Malcolm Jenkins at his football camp earlier today…of course they competed against each-other, as usual.
