The Eagles announced Thursday that they have extended the contract of president Joe Banner. The team also announced that Don Smolenski, the Eagles' senior V.P./chief financial officer, was promoted to the chief operating officer position.

"Joe's superb foresight both on and off the football field has been a key driving force for the team's achievements," said Jeffrey Lurie, the Eagles' chairman and CEO. "And Don's contributions over the last decade have been remarkable; his promotion to Chief Operating Officer is in recognition of his hard work, talent and dedication."

Since 1995, Lurie and Banner's first full year with the Eagles, Philadelphia has been in the playoffs 10 times. Only Indianapolis (12) has made more playoff appearances than the Eagles over the same 15-year period and only two franchises have won more playoff games and appeared in more conference title games in that time span: New England (17 wins and six championship game appearances) and Pittsburgh (14, six).
