    Kelly's NFL adaptability will reveal itself quickly

  • Eagles minicamp practice notes: June 6, 2013

     
    I'm a little late with my notes this time around, so let's just get right to it: • Nick Foles during OTAs and minicamp this year >>> Nick Foles in training camp last year. The natural, intangible progressions from a......

  • Eagles OTA practice notes, May 31st, 2013

     
    Let's just get right to it: • The Eagles are running their offense almost exclusively out of the shotgun. I'm told that they ran a few plays from under center during Tuesday's practice, but I must have missed that. Personally,......
  • Eagles OTA practice notes, May 28th, 2013

     
    I have a lot of notes today, so let's just skip any sort of intro and get right to it. • The Eagles' practice bubble here at the NovaCare Complex is a nice facility, but football games are played in......
  • Eagles OTA practice notes

     
    • If you're an X's and O's buff, I would strongly suggest you watch the following two videos, which are done extraordinarily well by Charles Fischer of FishDuck.com. They detail Oregon's two basic running plays/formations, the inside zone read and.....
  • Eagles minicamp practice notes: June 4, 2013

     
    • Nick Foles had a good day. Three passes stood out. He threw a 50 yard bomb to Jeremy Maclin, who tracked it nicely and made the play, even with decent coverage from Cary Williams. Foles also slung a ball......
  • Much different Eagles roster composition expected this year

    The practices and locker room have been closed all year. Players and coaches have been deliberately vague about schemes and position changes. But that cannot stop us, ladies and gentlemen, from taking a shot at projecting the final Philadelphia Eagles...
  • Film breakdown: Nick Foles' pocket presence

     
    At the 2012 NFL Combine, Nick Foles ran a 5.14 second 40 yard dash. Of the 14 quarterbacks that participated in that drill, Foles finished dead last. Yesterday against the Buccaneers, we saw Foles' complete lack of speed on his......
