Let’s just get right to it:
• The Eagles are running their offense almost exclusively out of the shotgun. I’m told that they ran a few plays from under center during Tuesday’s practice, but I must have missed that. Personally, I’ve seen nothing but shotgun.
• Last training camp, Julian Vandervelde had trouble snapping in the shotgun. He had far too many errant snaps. Today, he sailed one over the head of Michael Vick, and had another that Vick didn’t seem to be ready for. OL coach Jeff Stoutland likes Vandervelde’s “girth,” but he’ll have to improve his snapping to have any chance of sticking with the team as a center.
• Matt Barkley is fun to watch in drills. Today the Eagles QBs were doing a drill in which they pump faked down the middle field, then threw to the sideline. Barkley sells his fakes like it’s the Super Bowl.
