Ticket King is the place to go
for all home and road game Eagles tickets.
The Eagles currently stand as one of the National Football League's up and coming teams.
The Eagles are coached by Chip Kelly, who has done a great job of bringing many of the concepts form his offense at Oregon with him to the NFL,
and updating them to NFL standards. The Eagles currently boast the league's hottest young quarterback in Nick Foles. Foles has a big arm and has
the ability to make deep throws with his big arm. He must continue to improve his intermediate passing skills though.
The Eagles entered the 2014 off season needing help on defense and wide receiver.
They drafted Louisville outside linebacker Marcus Smith in the first round, and he will help solve the Eagles tacking problems on defense.
Their biggest need though is wide receiver. To answer their questions at wide receiver,
they began by drafting Vanderbilt Wide Receiver Jordan Matthews with the 10th selection of the second round.
They turned right around in the next round and selected Oregon wide receiver Josh Huff with the 22nd selection in round three.
They also had some issues in the defensive secondary last season, so they selected a pair of those.
The first defensive back they took was Jaylen Watkins of Florida with the first selection in round four.
The second defensive back those chose was Ed Reynolds from Stanford with 22nd selection in round five.
Eagles Move On With New Head Coach And Build Upon Their Old Success
Despite the issues they had with former head coach Andy Reid on his way out,
the Philadelphia Eagles still remain as one of the National Football League's oldest and most well run organizations top to bottom.
The Philadelphia Eagles were established and began play in 1933. Throughout their long history the Eagles have called six places home.
From 1933-1935 they played the Baker Bowl. In 1936 they moved to Philadelphia Municipal Stadium from 1936-1939, and again in 1941.
In 1940 they played at Connie Mack stadium and then moved back their in 1942 and remained there until 1957.
In 1958 they moved to Franklin Field where they played until 1970. In 1971 they moved into one of the worst stadiums in NFL history,
Veterans Stadium, and remained there until 2003. It is safe to say this, as many Eagles fans take pride in the
following statement, but one cynic once said in an interview that Eagles fans took pride in the fact that Veterans Stadium was a dump.
In 2003 they moved to Lincoln Financial Field, which is their home to this day.
The Philadelphia Eagles have made some great strides, and interesting decisions under Chip Kelly. Even though they didn't make the playoffs, the Eagles finished 2014 10-6, good for second place in the NFC East. What made this an amazing feat was the fact that Nick Foles missed most of the season. The Eagles were mainly led to this 10-6 record by backup quarterback Mark Sanchez, who did very well in Chip Kelly's system and had his best season as a pro, by a large margin. Sanchez threw for 2,418 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2014, with quarterback rating of 88.4.
The Eagles enter 2015 with a big hole at quarterback as they traded Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams for Sam Bradford. The Eagles and Rams also swapped first round draft choices. The Eagles attempted to trade up for Marcus Mariota, but were unable to do so. The moves leave them with Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley, G.J. Kinne, and Tim Tebow as their quarterbacks heading into camp. Nobody expects Tebow or Kinne to make it very far into camp. Sanchez had a good 2014, but he is not the long term answer. Bradford has talent, but has missed more than half his NFL career due to injury. Barkley has limited talent, but is still an intriguing option.
Eagles Join NFL in 1933
The Philadelphia Eagles were one of the NFL's original “expansion” franchises, having been founded in 1933. Of all of the stories of franchise founding, this one is one of the more uninteresting. The Frankford Yellow Jackets, one of the oldest professional football clubs in America, having been founded in 1899, folded during the 1931 season. They weren't even able to finish their season because they went bankrupt. As a result, Bert Bell, and Lud Wray, was awarded franchise rights from the now folded Yellow Jackets organization. Bell and Wray opened the Eagles in time for the 1933 season. Throughout their history, the Eagles have made the playoffs 24 times, most recently in 2013 and have won their division 13 times, also most recently in 2013. Despite all of the playoff appearances though, the Eagles only have three conference championships to their name, most recently in 2004, and three league championships to their name, all before the merger, most recently in 1960. The Eagles have called six buildings home in their history. First they played at the Baker Bowl from 1933 to 1935. Then they played at Philadelphia Municipal Stadium from 1936 to 1939, and again in 1941. Next up was Connie Mack Stadium, where they played in 1940, and then from 1942 to 1957. From 1958 to 1970 the Eagles played at Franklin Field, which is now the athletic home for the University of Pennsylvania. From 1971-2008 the Eagles played at Veterans Stadium, commonly referred to as “the dump” by many fans. In 2009, the Eagles moved into their present home of Lincoln Financial Field.
Chip Kelly Out in Philadelphia
The Eagles have a new direction as well. Following the failed Chip Kelly experiment, which was known for unusual practices, a bizarre offense, and bad personnel decisions, the Eagles decided they wanted a return to basics, so they hired former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson as their head coach. Pederson promises a return to the basics of professional football. The Eagles have already signed Sam Bradford to a two year contract this offseason, but the quarterback spot is open.
