The Linc - Eagles Think They Have Something "Special"

Eagles kick off preseason with win over Ravens
"We could be really special," Nnamdi Asomugha said Thursday night "I think we have a great opportunity to do some big things this year. But with those expectations, you have to put in a little more focus. It may not be as easy as other people are expecting it to be. We still have a lot of work to do."

Castillo's energy driving Eagles' defense - NFL Nation Blog - ESPN
Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Juan Castillo has a small cut on his face, right between the eyes. He got it when he head-butted linebacker Keenan Clayton in a recent practice while trying to drive home a point. Clayton had a helmet on at the time, hence the cut.
