Chip Kelly used to say he needed to know the "why" in everything. That's what Early Birds, our new twice-weekly newsletter for Eagles fans, will provide.

On Mondays and Fridays this season we'll gather our insights, analysis, information, and interviews from covering the Eagles every day, and deliver them directly to your inbox. You'll learn the latest about the team, the matchups, the personalities, the roster building and dynamics of the NFL. We'll also want to hear from you and share the tweets, pictures, comments and emails sent to us every day by Eagles fans, the most passionate in the NFL. I'll want to know what you think, what we should add, and what you want to know. You can contact me at or on Twitter @ZBerm.

Basically, you'll get even more Eagles coverage from our deep and experienced team – including my Eagles beat colleagues Jeff McLane, Les Bowen, and Paul Domowitch, as well as columnists Bob Ford, Marcus Hayes, David Murphy, Mike Sielski, and more.

Want to see a sample?  Here's a preview of Sunday's season opener against the Redskins, and here's the post-game wrap.  It's free to sign up at Thanks for joining us.
