Perception and Truth in Philly – Peter King of MMQB.SI.com
"PHILADELPHIA — I asked Eagles coach Chip Kelly if he felt frustrated with the perception that he can’t get along with players, and isn’t a good communicator, even though those who’ve been around the Eagles for years will tell you the door to his office is mostly open, while Andy Reid’s office door was mostly closed. He gave me one of those wry smiles, which I took to mean: I wish I could tell you exactly what I think of this, but I’m going to filter it, because nothing good can come of me airing out people.“Yeah,” Kelly said with that smile the other day, after a training-camp practice in south Philly. “But there’s nothing you can do about it. I think we do a really good job with communicating with our players. You can talk to guys on the team who say it’s the best communication they’ve had since they’ve been in the league. It’s just who do you want to believe? The players who are here understand that. At the end of the day you bring in 90 guys to camp and 53 are going to make it, so 37 people are going to hear something they don’t want to hear, and that’s the hard part.”"
Eagle Eye: Lots To Enjoy From Colts Win – Fran Duffy of PhiladelphiaEagles.com
"It’s a good feeling anytime you can open the preseason with a win. There is plenty of good film for the coaches to teach off of, whether they were positive or negative results. There were big plays in all three phases of the game that should help get fans excited for some of the players on this team.The D-Line Was DominantLast year, it was no secret that the strongest position group on the team was the defensive line. That didn’t change on Sunday against Indianapolis. Fletcher Cox, Cedric Thornton and Bennie Logan all made plays in the two series they spent on the field, but it was Logan who made the biggest impact."
Barkley gets job done in Tebow’s shadow – Mike Sielski of Philly.com
"They did not chant his name, or give him a standing ovation, or stay out in the heat for an extra two hours just to say they saw him rumble into the end zone against a defense loaded with hangers-on and roster fodder. They did all those things for the man who followed him. Matt Barkley jogged onto Lincoln Financial Field in relative silence, his entrance into the Eagles’ 36-10 preseason victory over the Colts just the opening act for Tim Tebow‘s return to the NFL, as if Barkley were an acoustic singer-songwriter warming up the crowd for the E Street Band.“Doesn’t bother me,” Barkley said after the game, and he did well not to grit his teeth as he spoke. He went 12 for 20 for 192 yards and an interception in just less than two quarters of action, and it happened to him Sunday just like it happened to Kyle Orton in Denver and Mark Sanchez in New York: the questions about Tebow, the ripples of his popularity fanning out until they reach the other quarterbacks on the team, until you start noticing them roll their eyes during those postgame media scrums. Orton eventually surrendered his starting job to him, and in 2012, exhausted by all the inquiries about Tebow’s role, Sanchez captured the Jets’ misbegotten decision to trade for Tebow in three words: “Selling seats, man.” The ripples never stop."
