The Eagles are a bad preaseason team; I'm loving Sav Rocca

New, comments

A few interesting notes from the papers this morning caught my eye. First, a quick glance at their record under Reid will tell you that the Eagles are simply a poor preseason team.

Reid has had just one winning preseason as the Eagles' head coach - 2-1 in 2001 - and his overall preseason record is 12-21. When the Eagles opened with 13 wins in their first 14 games on the way to the Super Bowl in 2004, they went 1-3 in the preseason, including an unsightly 24-6 loss to the New England Patriots in the opener.

Despite the fact that he's never actually played a real NFL football game, Sav Rocca is already a real football player. A very uncommon trait among punters. He didn't seem all that impressed by the big hit laid him Monday Night.

"As soon as it happened, I was, like, where the hell did he come from?" Rocca laughed. "But it's fine. If that's the best he's got, good luck to him."
