The first Wednesday of August brought us one of the saddest days that we can experience after the Philadelphia Eagles announce that training camp is underway, one where there’s nothing happening on the field. Just like that, boredom sets in.

It’s during times like these that we look around and see what other outlets are talking about, those other Eagles-centric publications that we all love. The sixth scheduled practice is scheduled for August 4th in the A.M. hours. In the meantime, you’re in luck. The web is full of intriguing reads to whet your appetite.

Here are three of the best Eagles stories of the past 24 hours.

This edition of Morning Coffee with the Philadelphia Eagles is loaded with pertinent camp questions, an interesting take on Dick Vermeil, and so much more.

Let’s begin with the former. This one takes us over to the Eagles Wire.

USA TODAY Sports’ Eagles Wire always delivers the goods. It’s hard to find a Birds-centered outlet that puts out more content. Glenn Erby’s seven pertinent questions after the first week of training camp is a must-read, but he left one question off of his list, and here it is.

Who has more pressure on them this season? Is it Nick Sirianni, Lane Hurts, or Jonathan Gannon? For clarity on that one, we check out a nice read on Bleeding Green Nation.

Ask anyone this question, and they’ll probably lean towards head coach Nick Sirianni and/or QB1, Jalen Hurts. The Eagles’ offense is stacked, and if Hurts doesn’t take a massive step forward, the cries for his removal will only grow louder. Gannon faces a similar scenario on the other side of the ball.

With all of the talent that Philly has on the other side of the ball, the theory is that there are no excuses if this defense isn’t lights out. That’s our opinion. Does BGN’s Joseph Santoliquito agree?

Well for an answer to that, you have to check out his write-up. You didn’t think we’d spoil the surprise, did you?

One of the most beloved Birds in the history of the Eagles’ franchise, Dick Vermeil, enters the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, August 6th. It’s an honor that’s long overdue. Heck, if you’re a casual fan, you might have been under the impression that he was already enshrined.

Oh well! Good things come to those who wait, and the wait is almost over for a great coach and man. He’ll be the last enshrinee of the afternoon’s proceedings. It’s good to see great things happen to great people.
