The Linc - Not A Fat Man's League Anymore

Five Things To Remember About the Eagles' Defense - Birds 24/7
Here are five things to remember about the Eagles’ defense – some good, some bad – with an eye on the upcoming season.

Paul Domowitch: Harbor becoming quite the catch for Eagles' offense - Philly.com
CLAY HARBOR stays after practice each day to work on his pass-catching skills. Has a quarterback or a coach throw him 50 extra balls before he calls it a day and heads for the locker room. The extra work has paid off. Since training camp started 3 weeks ago, Harbor hasn't dropped a single pass. Not a one. Thirty-two practices and God knows how many passes thrown in his direction, and not one catchable ball has hit the ground.

In Monday's game at New England, he will be the third quarterback, behind Vick and Foles. The starters are scheduled to play as much as three quarters. Don't tune in early to see Edwards.

Brady will give Birds' defense stiff challenge
Tom Brady and the Patriots' offense offer the Eagles' defense a great chance to see where they stand at this point in the year.

Minnesota Vikings fans go crazy in Metrodome - NFL.com
The second half of an NFL preseason game isn't always the most exciting place to be in the world, so we'll forgive the Metrodome audience on Friday night for getting a little distracted. And collectively losing their mind.
