No-22: Eagles Break Out ‘Emory & Henry’ Formation

emory1With 3:18 left in the second quarter of Monday night’s game against the Redskins, the Eagles set up at the Washington 14 yard line with a 1st-and-10.

LeSean McCoy had just picked up 12 yards on 3rd-and-2, and the offense was three plays in to their up-tempo, no-huddle drive. As the players retreated to the line of scrimmage, two members of the offensive line set up in unusual places.

Vick On Hits: ‘I Think I Can Make It Through’

0V3J8536The Redskins were credited with seven quarterback hits on Michael Vick Monday night, but that doesn’t begin to tell the story.

Through his film study, Ron Jaworski tracks the amount of hits the quarterback takes in a given game. According to Jaws’ count, Vick was knocked to the ground 15 times in the opener and was involved in some sort of contact play an additional eight times. That’s 23 of 77 snaps (30 percent)  where the 33-year-old was mixing it up.

“No one can sustain those kind of hits at the quarterback position and stay healthy,” said Jaworski. “It’s too many.”

Kelly On Offense: We Were Our Own Worst Enemy

Chip KellyChip Kelly was not happy with the turnovers and penalties Saturday night against the Jaguars, but overall, he didn’t seem too concerned with the performance of the Eagles’ offense.

“We were again our own worst enemy on the offensive side of the ball,” Kelly said. “We turned it over three times. One was on a punt return by Damaris [Johnson] and the one [Bryce Brown fumble] that goes through the end zone. And besides that, the two big penalties where we had huge first downs where we get them called back because we got penalties, whether it was on the 4th-and-1 or on the third down early in the first half. So those are the things that kill drives – the penalties and the turnovers. We need to continue to work on that.”

Eagles Wake-Up Call: High Expectations For Peters

It’s been more than 19 months since Jason Peters last played in a football game.

But he’ll take the field Saturday night in Jacksonville in what essentially amounts to a three-quarter dress rehearsal before the regular-season opener against the Redskins.

Asked what his expectations are for a now-healthy offensive line, Peters said: “Try to be the best, try to give up the least sacks ever in Eagles history. That’s the first goal. And try to get a championship. We’ve got an athletic line, and if we come together, we’re gonna win games because it’s gonna start with us.”

The Eagles have signed 6-6, 280-pound defensive end Eddie McClam on Saturday, the team announced.

McClam was in camp with the Lions last season. He played college ball at Old Dominion. The 24-year-old worked out with the Eagles earlier in the day before landing the job  and participated in Saturday’s practice at Lincoln Financial Field.

Players who were unable to suit up for the session include Curtis Marsh (broken hand), Felix Jones (oblique), Danny Watkins (concusion), Emil Igwenagu (concussion), Dennis Kelly (back) ,  Kenny Phillips (quad) and Casey Matthews (knee).

Jason Peters, who has been sidelined with a hamstring strain, took part in team drills. Jon Dorenbos (concussion) returned to practice.

Jason Peters Leaves Practice With Hamstring Strain

Left tackle Jason Peters exited the practice field about halfway through Wednesday’s session with what the Eagles later called a right hamstring strain. He is day-to-day.

Peters started out the 11-on-11 drills with the first team, but was replaced by Matt Tobin for the final snap of the first series. He remained on the sidelines for the rest of the drill, then walked into the NovaCare facility with one of the trainers when it was over.

“He said he was OK,” said Chip Kelly after practice.

Todd Herremans (knee) returned to practice Wednesday. Cary Williams (hamstring), Brandon Hughes (hamstring), Antonio Dixon (hamstring) and Arrelious Benn (knee) all worked off to the side. Tackle Dennis Kelly was being stretched out by trainers during practice and appeared to leave the session early.

Kelly: Peters Is the Exception To Every Rule

Jason Peters didn’t understand the question.

A reporter asked him today if he could get back to being the player who made it to five straight Pro Bowls from 2007 to 2011.

“What you mean?” Peters asked. “I am that player. I don’t play no less than I played last year [2011]. I’m gonna go out there and give it 100 percent and let the fans and the coaches vote. That’s not even my goal. My goal is to get a division championship and get to the playoffs and go deep.”
