10 things we learned from the Eagles' win over the Packers - BGN
What a performance. Let's look at the numbers again: 10 for 10 (100%), 121 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT, 156.7 rating. And that was only through one quarter! The Packers defense had no chance of stopping Bradford. The way he carved up Green Bay was surgical. He looked in complete control of the offense. It wasn't like he was just throwing to wide open receivers all the time, either. He made some great throws in tight spaces to contested wide receivers. While his protection was mostly clean, he did stand in the pocket and take a hit on his touchdown pass to Trey Burton. Bradford has looked great in training camp practice and now his success has carried over to real game action. This was the most encouraging performance possible from Bradford.

So as sharp as he looked, he feels like he still needs two productive weeks of practice to be ready for the regular season. “I’m sure I missed a lot of things tonight, but just continue to work timing and rhythm in the passing game,” he said. “I felt like it was better than last week, but it’s by no means perfect. We have two weeks before we play Atlanta, and just continue to work with the guys on that chemistry. “But I think tonight was a big step. I think we played well, but we’re going to look to build on this.”

That #34 dude had some success running the football in the second half, but when the Eagles' first and second teams were playing in the first half, Eddie Lacy and James Starks combined for 9 rushes for 5 yards (0.6 YPC).

Instant Reaction – Eagles Are Kinda Decent - Iggles Blitz
The Eagles look great right now. Yes, it is the preseason, but you see the Eagles starters dominating everyone they go up against. And it isn’t like the schedule has been easy. Colts. Ravens. At Packers. Those are playoff teams. The Eagles have dominated them with a variety of weapons. The regular season is the real test, but you can’t ignore how well the Eagles have played this summer. Someone tried to explain to me that the 2008 Lions, who went 0-16, finished 4-0 in the preseason and that showed you just how meaningless summer football is. Wrong. The Lions did go 4-0, but they won two close games and two mild blowouts. That team won the preseason games, but they didn’t do anything special in them. Nobody was watching that team and wondering if they might be Super Bowl material.

Sam Bradford Perfect Against Packers - Birds 24/7
“Sam has always been a great quarterback and he continues to get more and more comfortable in this offense,” Celek said. "He just made a great read and it was a great play call. It’s tough for defenses to stop us when we run routes like that and we’re going every which way.”

Eagles have seen enough from Bradford; bring on the regular season - Inquirer
One question Chip Kelly shouldn't have to answer this week is whether he has seen enough of Sam Bradford yet. He'll probably be asked, anyway, and he still won't answer, but the fact is that everyone has now seen enough of Bradford to know he is ready for the NFL regular season. And you can put the Green Bay Packers at the top of that list. They've really seen enough of him.

Wow! Eagles Light It Up In Game 3 -
Josh Huff didn’t play as he recovers from a death in his family, but he went through warm-ups and is fine physically. Meanwhile, the rest of the receiving corps showed just how deep and talented it is. Jordan Matthews was open most of the time he was on the field and had three catches for 51 yards. Miles Austin chipped in with some plays. Nelson Agholor continues to make progress and play well. Sproles, it is clear, is moving all over the formation and is a huge threat.
