The Philadelphia Eagles played their third preseason game, the first on the road, against the Green Bay Packers. The Birds lay down 39 points in the first half alone. On top of that, quarterback Sam Bradford played a perfect game. We reiterate… perfect. He threw no incompletions, going 10 for 10 for 121 yards, and three touchdowns, in the first seven minutes of the game. Bradford’s accuracy was great, and he had the finesse and confidence that every team wants as their starter.
It’s hard not to get excited at this point about what we are seeing in our QB, his weapons, the much-improved Defense, and even the continued success of special teams.
The last preseason game is on the road against the New York Jets up in northern New Jersey. We will not see many of the high-caliber starters, but we will get to see the depth players fighting to make the team. The 53-man roster deadline is fast approaching, and I don’t envy the Eagles coaches with making those decisions as to what players have to go.
Optimism for a New Season:
