By Merrill Reese: For years players have grumbled about the OTA’s, Off-season Training Activities, practice in April, May and June.  Now guys are actually telling me that they understand their necessity. Years ago training camps lasted six or seven weeks, now its in and out.

There’s no doubt that the coaching staff changes along with some new players in key spots contributed to The Eagles disappointing start. Hopefully Sunday’s win was a sign that they are starting to gel.
