Exactly how fast was the Eagles' hurry-up in the first preseason game vs the Pats? - Jimmy Kempski,
In the 2nd quarter of last night's preseason game against the Patriots, Chip Kelly tested out his hurry-up offense for the first time. It was during Nick Foles' second series, when the Eagles moved down the field and scored on a Bryce Brown TD run. There was a three-play stretch during that drive where the hurry-up really showed some life. Here's quick time breakdown of those three plays.

No-22: What We Saw From Chip Kelly’s Offense - Sheil Kapadia, Birds 24/7
Chip Kelly said after Friday’s game that his up-tempo package is just one of many tools in his toolbox. The truth is, it’s likely to become the foundation of his offense. It’s what Kelly had so much success with at Oregon. It’s what the Eagles have been practicing all offseason long. And it’s a style that other NFL teams are already having success with. But as we saw Friday night, there’s more to it than just tempo.

Vinny Curry makes the most of key opportunity - Reuben Frank, CSN Philly
But after being buried on the bench most of last year while the Eagles went through two defensive coordinators and two defensive line coaches, it at least looks like Curry has caught the attention of his coaches this summer.

Jaiquawn Jarrett in good position to earn NY Jets starting safety spot - Seth Walder, NY Daily News
Jaiquawn Jarrett appears to be quickly gaining ground on Antonio Allen for the second starting safety spot. Rex Ryan was very complimentary of Jarrett, and said he’ll get a chance to play with the starters next week.
