Episode #248 crew: Brandon Lee Gowton, James Seltzer

A quick shot at Sam Bradford

Carson Wentz has looked really good in training camp! Not perfect - he’s not a finished product yet. But he’s inspiring a lot of confidence right now. He looks a lot better now than he did at this point last year.

The cornerbacks are a big concern! Do the Eagles even have enough to get by? What do you make of the Corey Graham signing?

The wide receivers have been standing out, especially our guy Marcus Johnson! (See? We called it!) Nelson Agholor is having a much better camp this year than he did in 2016. Shelton Gibson, meanwhile, might be having one of the worst camps ever.

The defensive line and offensive line are having some great battles as the pads go on

After one full week of camp, have there been any changes to the starting lineup?

Thoughts on tackling in practice

What else do you want to see from training camp now that we’re a week into it?

Final thoughts and more

@ndutton13 asks: If Shelton Gibson made a catch but wasn't able to get by Patrick Robinson who tackled him cleanly, would reality cave in on itself? Oh and also, what is your own personal outlandish food take?

@PhilaBCoulter asks: Will we see you Sunday at the Linc?

@Brendanekstrom asks: Did Shelton Gibson have drop issues in college? I haven't been able to find any stats on that. Surprised by his poor camp.

@Barcheddy asks: Who was your favorite WWF character from the 80's/90's?

@CFJastrzembski asks: Favorite vacation (or shore spot), since I’m in Placid for the weekend and John’s in Chicago.

@mark_adamiak asks: Thoughts on #FolestotheFins?

@ryne_jones asks: Which member of the eagles would be the best partner for a case race?
