Chip Kelly's hurry-up offense is faster than it was at the start of camp - Jimmy Kempski,
The Eagles' pace is growing faster than Eric Fisher's arms.

Detailed Game Review – PS #2 – PHI 14, CAR 9 - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
The team made a lot of progress from the opener. That’s important to see.
payday loans That said, there is still too much sloppy play. The Eagles are turning the ball over. The Eagles aren’t coming away with takeaways. There are blown chances on offense, defense and STs. The team is playing hard and I like the energy and enthusiasm, but I’ll feel a lot better when some of the mistakes go away.

New Eagles Coach Chip Kelly brings his fast-forward football to NFL - Sam Farmer, LA Times
"Whenever they would chirp, the only thing I would say back to them was, 'I don't even know who you are. You're not even on my scouting report. We don't even have a scouting report. We worry about us, and we beat you. That's how it works.'"

Camp Notes: Foles Trying To Bounce Back - Tim McManus, Birds 24/7
If there is a positive spin to put on Nick Foles‘ two preseason turnovers, it’s that both were promptly followed by touchdown drives. In the opener against the Patriots, Foles was hit from behind as he was trying to pass on his second play from scrimmage and coughed up the football. His next time up he engineered a 10-play, 62-yard drive that Bryce Brown capped with an eight-yard burst up the middle for the score.

Allen Barbre exceeding expectations at camp - Mike Wisniewski, CSN Philly
Barring an injury, Barbre has become one of the biggest surprises at camp by all but guaranteeing himself a position as a backup on the Eagles' offensive line because of his ability to play multiple positions.

Eagles' offensive line looks to be a strength - Bob Grotz,
It’s not a coincidence the quarterbacks and the offensive line are playing well at the same time. Typically quarterbacks are as good as the line. Rewind to Michael Vick’s best passing season and the Eagles sent tackle Jason Peters to the Pro Bowl and had two other guys receive enough votes to almost make the trip to Honolulu as alternates.
