Saturday, August 7, 2010, 2:13 PM
Video: Defensive end Trent Cole had an oustanding 2009 season, recording 12.5 sacks and showing he can stop the run as well. In the offseason, the Eagles tried to get some help for Cole, like first-round pick Brandon Graham. What is the five-year veteran expecting in 2010? Here's what he had to say... Read more

McGlynn, Kolb and the offense

Saturday, August 7, 2010, 12:06 PM
The Eagles were back at it on Saturday morning, practicing in full pads at Lehigh. Here are the observations: * As I mentioned earlier, starting center Nick Cole left practice with a knee injury, giving Mike McGlynn a chance to run with the first-team offense. The team did not hit this morning, but... Read more

Nick Cole leaves practice

Saturday, August 7, 2010, 8:50 AM
Eagles center Nick Cole left practice about 20 minutes in Saturday morning with what Andy Reid called a knee injury. Cole had a brief conversation with athletic trainer Rick Burkholder before heading indoors under his own power. He appeared to be favoring his left knee. Cole had been getting all... Read more

McDermott's rotation still taking shape

Friday, August 6, 2010, 5:14 PM
It's hard to figure out what the Eagles coaches really think of players this time of year, based on what they say. I can't remember Andy Reid, Sean McDermott or Marty Mornhinweg mentioning anything even remotely critical about any of their players so far here at Lehigh. Every guy is working hard.... Read more

At 7:24 p.m., Kevin Kolb was introduced as the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field for the first time. It was Flight Night, not a regular-season game.

Q&A: Lindley, Allen and Lehigh

Thursday, August 5, 2010, 9:06 AM
I've received quite a few Eagles questions via e-mail and Twitter over the last week or so. I haven't been able to respond to all of them so wanted to round them up here. @deanlist: Haven't heard much about Trevard Lindley through camp. A product of not getting beat often, or not getting significant... Read more

Graham disagrees with Cowboys' Bryant

Wednesday, August 4, 2010, 8:48 PM
Brandon Graham knows he'll have to take the defensive linemen out to dinner. Other than that, he hasn't seen much hazing as a rookie with the Eagles. But if his teammates asked Graham to carry their shoulder pads, he would - unlike Dez Bryant. Graham explained why he disagreed with Bryant's move... Read more

Another day, another morning practice at Lehigh. Here are the observataions: * I apologize for writing about some of the same guys every day, but I just try to write what I see.
