Eagles practice notes, August 20, 2015: The last day of practice notes! - PhillyVoice
Cody Parkey rebounded today after a bad game on Sunday, and subsequent bad practice on Wednesday. He made all seven of his field goal attempts today: 32 G, 34 G, 42 G, 44 G, 35 G, 39 G, 45 G. However, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker stole the show, when he blasted a field goal attempt of about 70 yards through the uprights. On a related note, Tucker is the best kicker in the NFL.

John Harbaugh: Jim Johnson was best defensive coach ever - CSN Philly
No assistant coach has ever been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but Harbaugh said Johnson deserves that ultimate honor. "There definitely should be a place for guys like that," Harbaugh said. "To me, assistant coaches are the foundation of the game. Those are the lifers. How come there’s not a category for the Jim Johnsons in the Hall of Fame?"

There have been no setbacks. Not a hint of swelling. Sam Bradford's knee feels fine, thank you very much, and he's eager, excited, and really looking forward to playing Saturday night in the preseason game against Baltimore ...

Ravens-Eagles Practice #2 - Iggles Blitz
I’m all for doing anything that means more reps for Curry. And to his credit, he has embraced whatever the coaching staff has asked of him for the past 2.5 years. When Chip Kelly first got here, Curry struggled to let go of his attacking, 1-gap ways. But he did. He embraced the 2-gap system and worked hard to become functional at that, all the while remaining a terrific pass rusher.

Running Diary: Eagles Practice Observations - Birds 24/7
More red zone work. Jaylen Watkins gets twisted up and yields a touchdown to Darren Waller along the left side. Tim Tebow is running the offense on the far end of the other field, and zips one wide intended for Tukes. Up and down day for Tebow.

What could the Eagles get for Matt Barkley? -
Spoiler: Nothing.

Who will be Eagles' third outside linebacker? - Inquirer
The wild card is Vinny Curry. The fourth-year defensive end has increasingly seen time at outside linebacker. Davis said last week that he was just "playing around" with Curry at linebacker and that, if out there, it would typically be as an edge rusher. But with Smith out he played a bunch of snaps there Thursday and frequently had to drop into coverage.

Don't let your loved ones play QB behind Washington's abysmal offensive line - SB Nation
"Washington QB" is one of America's most dangerous jobs. Whoever is unlucky enough to win is going to get smashed to smithereens this year.
