The Philadelphia Eagles are one of the leading eastern division teams in the NFL. Though the team struggled to maintain a strong fan base in the 70's and 80's, the late 80's brought the team the kick start it needed by adding Buddy Ryan to the roster. He led the team to the playoffs in six out of nice seasons between 1988 and 1996. The team was also led by the winning combination of players known as the "Gang Green" which belonged to Reggie White, Jerome Brown, Clyde Simmons, Seth Joyner, Wes Hopkins, Byron Evans, Eric Allen and Andre Waters. Philadelphia Eagles tickets are available soon for the upcoming 2009 season. Preseason Philadelphia Eagles tickets are also available online soon, so be sure to watch for them to get in on the game.
Philadelphia Eagles tickets are on sale to Lincoln Financial Field for the rest of the 2011 Eagles schedule to watch live as Michael Vick tries to bring the Eagles back from the bottom of the NFC East. Philly was once favored to take the division, but are now going to be fighting for a postseason berth. TheSeats has Eagles tickets for the rest of the years.
The Eagles started the season with a convincing win over the Rams and followed it with four straight losses. Philadelphia has added a win against the division foe Redskins. Quarterback Michael Vick has not been able to quite live up to his billing based on last season's performance. Vick has decent passing numbers and terrific rushing numbers, but he has simply turned the football over too much. He has eight interceptions and two fumbles lost. Meanwhile he has thrown nine touchdowns.
Philadelphia's offense would not be nearly as troubled if the Eagles were not turning the ball over nearly three times a game. As a team they have the eighth most passing yards (271.7) and most rushing yards (170) a game. Running back LeSean McCoy has been great, averaging 5.4 yards a carry and scoring five touchdowns.
On the other hand, the Eagles defense has been unable to force turnovers or stop the ball. Philly has a good passing offense, ranking 10th and allowing 217.3 yards a game. They have struggled stopping the run, ranking 233rd and allowing 123.8 yards a game Defensive end Jason Babin and defensive tackles Cullen Jenkins have combined for 12 sacks and cannot be blamed for the poor pass coverage.
The Philadelphia Eagles have been playing professionally since 1933. They enjoyed fleeting success from 1947 to 1949, when they won two NFL Championships. They won again in 1960, but struggled between championships and after. It took a young head coach named Dick Vermeil and quarterback Ron Jaworski to lead the franchise out of its funk. The Eagles made the playoffs every year from 1978 to 1981 and even played in the Super Bowl in 1980, losing 27-10 to the Raiders, before the sale of the team thrust the team into another period of struggle.
Modern football fans know the Eagles as a powerhouse, and they know the football team as this because, beginning in 1988, Eagles tickets were available for a team defined by great defense and quarterbacks. The team has only missed the playoffs seven times from 1988 until now.
Reggie White, Randal Cunningham, Donovan McNabb, and many others have helped take this franchise to the playoffs consistently. In 2004, McNabb led the Eagles to the franchise's second Super Bowl, losing 24-21 to the Patriots. Still, this team has proven to be one of the perennial contenders in the modern ear of football.
