The 2010 Philadelphia Eagles will convene training camp at Lehigh University with rookies and select veterans on July 26, and all players on July 29. Practices are open to the public, with the first practice at 8:45 AM on July 27. There is no admission.
This year’s Eagles have the Philly fan base very excited with a new starting quarterback and very good young talent ready to show what they can do. Kevin Kolb waited patiently behind former Eagles’ quarterback Donovan McNabb, learning coach Andy Reid’s complex West Coast Offense and is poised to show everyone what he has learned.
After a shaky start against the eventual-Super-Bowl-Champion New Orleans Saints last season, Kolb bounced back with a record-setting performance versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Kolb became the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for 300 yards in each of his first two career starts. In the same game, receiver DeSean Jackson became the first player in NFL history with a 60+ yard TD in each of his team’s first three games of a season. Eagles fans have seen this as a sign of things to come.
Most fans understand that this season may be considered a rebuilding year, but Kolb expects more from himself and the team. He expects to win.
On the other side of the football, the defense has seen a bit of change. Popular cornerback Sheldon Brown is now in Cleveland, and after the injury to new safety Marlin Jackson, rookie draft pick Nate Allen will be expected to step in right away. New rookie defensive end Brandon Graham will also be looking at potential starts, as the Eagles try to improve the pass rush to support the young secondary. Linebacker Stewart Bradley will be returning after missing last season with a torn ACL in his knee, providing much-needed support to the linebacking corp.
While in the strong NFC East with the Cowboys, Giants, and Redskins add to that schedule will include games against the AFC South (Colts, Jags, Texans, and Titans) and the NFC North (Packers, Vikings, Bears, Lions) plus conference games with tough Falcons and 49ers teams and the Eagles will have their work cut out for them. But all fans realize that on any given Sunday these teams can be competitive enough to beat any of the others.
So if you can’t wait for football, head to Lehigh University and catch some early action with the new-look Eagles.
