PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eagles fans at today’s open practice got their first in-person look at offseason improvements to Lincoln Financial Field.

At first glance, fans approve of the $90 million worth of upgrades the Eagles made to their stadium. Eagles fan Mark Koup liked what he saw.

“It looks great,” he said. “The high-def monitors are terrific. It’s nice to be able to walk around the top of the stadium. It’s terrific.”

The Eagles added new high-def end zone video monitors, wrap-around ribbon boards and 1,600 new seats in the corners that used to be open.

Dennis Sabato of Bear, Delaware was impressed.

“The high def is awesome and the sightlines here are out of this world,” Sabato said. “There can’t be a bad seat in this place. We’ve walked through the entire stadium and we think it’s great.”

Jay Ingersoll of Lansdale also approved.

“I love the ribbons,” Ingersoll said. “I love the HD TVs. I love the added seats that I can finally get a ticket to!”

But the stadium improvements were not the only things fans were interested in seeing. Jay was also looking for Chip Kelly to show off upgrades on the field at the open practice.

“I’m looking for Darren Sproles and McCoy splitting out,” he said. “I’m looking for new plays that nobody has ever seen before.”

And when he wasn’t looking at the stadium, fan Mark Weaver of Sinking Spring, PA was watching the Eagles’ offense.

“I don’t want to see anybody get hurt,” he said. “That’s the main thing. But I’m going to be watching Darren Sproles and Nick Foles and Shady McCoy.”

And then — if he wanted to — he could watch them again in HD.
