Campin' - Eagles Training Camp notes 8.8.07

Ryan Moats realizes his career with the Eagles is hanging by a thread. Andy himself has even said, you just can't fumble. It's that simple.

Matt McCoy hurt his shoulder so badly last preseason, he could have gone on IR. According to him that is. He says he also suffered 30-40 stingers during the year. So were the injuries what led to his poor play last year, or he is ever going to be able to take the punishment of being a starting NFL linebacker.

I really think Jeff Lurie comes off very genuine. He did his annual "State of the Team" address yesterday and I really got the impression that he suffered right along with us with the way last season ended. I also think he wants a superbowl as much as us too... I like this quote,

"It's a singular thought. You just base everything on wanting to win a Super Bowl. Nothing gets in the way of that thought. We're all obsessed with this. There is nothing else that takes even close priority."

Lurie also would never tolerate the Mike Vick situation, in fact he's gotten rid of players that have gotten in trouble for mistreatment of animals.

In some packages, rookie DE Victor Abiamiri has been playing the stand up "Joker" spot. He's never played as an outside linebacker in his career, but he's excited about doing it.

LJ Smith is participating in full contact drills for the first time this camp and Sav Rocca outshined Dirk once again yesterday.

The play of the day yesterday was when Quintin Mikell rocked Jason Avant after the WR had made a catch. Also Broderick Bunkley struggled against Nick Cole, which is not encouraging...
