Les Bowen's three things to watch as the Eagles host New England tomorrow night at the Linc ...
1. The middle linebacking: We ought to see Joe Mays, then Omar Gaither, then Matt Wilhelm. This is one spot where you really want to get a look at the second- and third-string guys, not that you don’t need to see Mays play well, too.
2. LeSean McCoy: Probably won’t see him have to pick up a blitz in a preseason game, but running with the ball and catching it should be on the menu. He looked darned good at Lehigh.
3. The other rookie: That would be Jeremy Maclin. How much did the nine days missed to a contract dispute hurt him? Maclin seems to be in fine shape and is catching the ball well, but his grasp of the offense is a big question.
