PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s one thing for the Eagles’ players, coaches, and even media to tell us how improved their defense is, but when the enemy says it, it takes on new meaning.

The Eagles were the worst passing defense in the NFL last season, allowing a league-high 298.8 passing yards per game. For the second straight season, they are practicing with the New England Patriots and CSN New England reporter, Tom E. Curran, is impressed with the Eagles defense in year two under Billy Davis.

“The coverage was terrific by the Philadelphia Eagles today,” Currant said Tuesday after practice on Comcast SportsNet New England. “A lot of small windows, a lot of forced throws, a couple of times [Tom] Brady actually tucked it and ran as you might expect—jogged away just to say, ‘Hey party is over, I couldn’t find anybody.’ But I think in concert, they worked really well in terms of the Eagles defensive line and coverage. Really far, far, far better than we saw last summer and far better than the Patriots saw last week against Washington.”

Curran joined the 94WIP Morning Show on Wednesday and talked about the Eagles’ and Patriots’ head coaches and owners, Cary Williams’ comments, and a slew of other topics. You can listen to that interview here.
