Eagles minicamp practice notes: June 4, 2013

• Nick Foles had a good day. Three passes stood out. He threw a 50 yard bomb to Jeremy Maclin, who tracked it nicely and made the play, even with decent coverage from Cary Williams. Foles also slung a ball over the middle to Jason Avant in between 4 defenders that was right on the money. And finally, he hit Brent Celek with a nice touch pass over a defender on a 15 yard sideline route.

• Matt Barkley also had a decent day. It’s kind of funny to think that Matt Barkley and Mike Kafka were both 4th round picks. Kafka looked completely overwhelmed during his first NFL training camp, while Barkley looks absolutely nothing like a rookie.

• In previous practice recaps, we had noted that rookie UDFA Russell Shepard is always one of the last players off the field, staying after to catch passes on the jugs machine. We had also previously mentioned that Shepard had specifically sought out Jason Avant to take him under his wing. Today, after practice, Chip Kelly was speaking with reporters where the players would normally be catching passes on the jugs machine. They fired up the machine, but were told to turn it off because it was too noisy. So what did Avant and Shepard do? They started playing ball inside the house:

• Evan Mathis practiced today. He doesn’t think Jason Peters has lost a step “at all.”

• See the following formation? Get used to it:

  21. Interesting difference between Avant and Shepard: every time Avant catches the ball, it goes straight to his elbow joint to be locked down, where Shepard just gets a grip and throws it back. You can really see that Avant has the technique down to a automatic routine that he can do while sleeping. He might not offer much, but he sure can catch the ball.

    1. CrackSammich says:

      That’s the first thing I noticed, too. In fairness to Sheppard though, his automatic reaction seems to be more like a quarterback catching the snap, which makes sense because he was pretty recently considered one.

  22. Matt says:

    Not related to football, but were you wearing a blue/purple polo today Jimmy? I think you showed up in the background of NFL.com’s interview with DeSean Jackson, about the three-minute mark.

    1. Jimmy Kempski says:

      Blue

    2. Just saw what you’re talking about. No, that’s not me.

  23. DM says:

    Is Chip outts his mind? The “Continued at the Allentown Morning Call…” formation will never work in the pros! I give him two years in the league!

    1. Greg says:

      Its a formation that’s intended to confuse the opponent with grammatical errors.

  24. Bob says:

    Wait, your coach is stopping your players from doing voluntary extra practices so he can talk to the media?

  25. Quick question about the formation. What personnel are we looking at? 2TE 2WR 1RB? 1TE 3WR 1RB? 1TE 2WR 2RB? Or just any and all existing variations we can think of

    1. Jimmy Kempski says:

      Yes.

    2. Gary says:

      I just assumed it was 4 WR and a RB, but you’re right, it might be something else or there might be variations.

      1. VRFC8 says:

        Or motion to a more traditional set. That is probably just the base set. See how the defense reacts
