Love it when the 3rd down giveup draw works.

Wow. It's just preseason, but the Eagles have some major issues they need to get worked out already.

I swear to God if this year is just Ben dumping off to the rbs for 4 yards...I might quit watching.

It's hard to draw much of a conclusion from any of this. Aren't the eagles missing two starters on their d-line tonight? It's always nice to see a Philly team suck it hard though.

You aren't bringing out your whole playbook in the pre-season, especially the first game. Ben played one series. This is more for player evaluation than anything else.

Not any conclusions- Adams has a lot to work on at LT.

haha yeah, but their secondary issues (i.e. Nnamdi and the safeties) dated back to last season. They are missing Patterson though.

Juan Castillo is still their defensive coordinator. The same Castillo that didn't coach defense in any capacity since 1989, when he was a D-coordinator for a high school team in Texas.

If Wallace isn't there to stretch defenses, there's going to be a lot of 4 yard dump-offs.

I thought this was Todd Haley's m.o. though.
