The Eagles return to the Linc tonight in their "preseason home opener"... or I as I like to call it "the game where the fans pay full price to see Andy Thorn and Timmy Chang play..."

We may see a bit more of the starters in this game, but usually the starters only see significant time in the 2nd and 3rd preseason game. With the extra game this year the Eagles starter will probably see the most time in the 3rd and 4th game. Reid claims that the first teams will play 1 1/2 quarters... however he said they'd play a full quarter last game and they cleary did not.

The big news for this game is that we'll see 1st round pick Broderick Bunkley for the first time. He'll play tonight, less than a week after reporting to camp.

We won't be seeing 4 running backs including Westbrook, Moats(who is back practicing BTW), Perry, and Buckhalter. The Eagles actually had to sign a free agent RB(Marty Johnson = who?) to fill in. Reno Mahe, Thomas Tapeh, Johnson, and UDFA fullback Jason Davis should get some carries. Darwin Walker and Todd Pinkston will both also be out, plus there's still no signs of Jeremy Bloom or Chris Gocong.

It should be interesting to see the Eagles first team offense take on the Browns 3-4 defense. The Eagles have traditionally struggled against 3-4 defenses, something that Hank Fraley has taken alot of blame for. His ability to play with a nosetackle lined up right on top of him has been exploited by teams like Pittsburgh and New England. It should be interesting to see new how the line with Jackson at center performs.

Check back here the day after the game for my notes and thoughts...
