Final minicamp thoughts on Grouchy Andy

Tuesday, May 6, 2008, 11:56 AM
I don't get as offended by Andy Reid as some folks in the media. I don't pretend to understand the Eagles' coach, why he is like he is. I think he's an extremely uncomfortable public speaker who, much like his quarterback, sometimes has a hard time articulating what he's trying to say in plain English... Read more

Lito Shuffles

Lito Sheppard sent word Monday through an Eagles spokesman that he would NOT talk to reporters at the conclusion of minicamp, though Sheppard had said he would, in his brief remarks when he reported on Friday.

ANDY REID AFTER THE LAST MINICAMP PRACTICE THIS MORNING: On holding Donovan McNabb out of the final practice: We've been charting Donovan's throws.

Observations from Sunday morning minicamp practice

Sunday, May 4, 2008, 2:00 PM
--The Eagles have switched Michael Gasperson from wide receiver to tight end. They used him a little bit as a tight end in the only game he played last season -- Week 16 v. New Orleans. --Wide receiver Bam Childress is listed on the Eagles' roster as 5-foot-10. But he's not bigger than 5-8. Childress... Read more

What Donovan Said, What Donovan Meant
