Here we talk about the awesomeness of Chip Kelly practices.



http://www.phillymag.com/birds247/2014/05/29/running-diary-eagles-practice-observations-14/

Quote:
11:25 Ė We are greeted outside by AC/DCís T.N.T. The players are in shorts and helmets, and while Week 1 kickoff against the Jaguars is still more than three months away, itís nice to be watching football again.


Quote:
11:38 - Another new device. We'll call this one the doorway. That's what it looks like - a red doorway for really little people. Or if you've ever played ladder ball, it looks like that contraption, only with the one bar up top. Running backs take the handoffs from Duce Staley, make themselves small and run through it. Jimmy Kempski of Philly.com promised a drawing of this apparatus.

By the way, Darren Sproles is having no trouble fitting through this thing.


Quote:
By the way, did you know Marcus Smith was a second? The Eagles' first-round pick wears the No. 90 with Smith II on the back.


Quote:
Trent Cole is entering his 10th season, but he wins the Brett Favre award for "Guy who just likes to have fun out there." After taking down the tackling dummy, he proceeds to punch it in the face multiple times.


Quote:
Meanwhile, Sproles is seeing the bulk of action at running back with the second team. He wins the award for "New guy who already seems to know exactly what he's doing."


Quote:
Jordan Matthews is in Los Angeles for an NFLPA event. It's mostly Brad Smith and Josh Huff getting first-team reps in the slot.

Some notes from lawlor. Said Coopers been having drops, and Jason Phillips doesn't look 100%.

Those are not his though. He took 'em from articles. Among the one Phire linked up.

It's kind of weird having two highly drafted rookies at the same position.



Who am I suppose to want to see the field more?

I expect Huff more in the slot. Matthews will see time outside IMO. he doesn't have the shiftiness to run away from the slot CB.

NO uses their big bodied guys in the slot to be a threat downfield. I'm not sure how Chip plans to use Matthews in the slot.

Momah is a nobody so his opinion doesn't matter.

So far I've heard the following:

There was a Maclin injury scare where he fell to the ground grabbing his knee but walked off the field and said he's fine

Jordan Matthews impressed running with the 2nd unit being easily the fastest receiver on the team and very vocal which isn't common for a rookie. He stayed 20 minutes after practice running routes with Sanchez.

McCoy supposedly looks a little slimmer and appears to be faster

Trent Cole easily looks more comfortable playing as a linebacker and his weight resembles one much more than last offseason. But, on the downside Brandon Graham doesn't appear much different.

Sanchez rebounded and Barkley didn't do anything to stand out good or bad.

Momah made some impressive catches and definitely looks better than when he was cut last year.
