The Eagles held a Chalk Talk for local media on Tuesday evening. Les Bowen wrote a post about for his blog. It is definitely worth checking out. Les came away impressed with Marty's knowledge of a highly complex offense. He liked Bobby April. He felt that Sean McDermott was the most useful of the 3 coaches. He talked about various looks the team uses (4-3, Nickel/Dime stuff, some exotic looks and even some 3-4). Sean also talked about several of the players.
I spoke with someone else who attended and he agreed with the first assessment. He also made mention that McDermott said Asante Samuel will tackle better this year. I guess that is a point of emphasis with him this summer.
FROM THE MOTHERSHIP
Dave wrote a good column on WR Chad Hall and his situation. Chad is working his tail off for us part of the week and then flying back West to finish his obligation to the Air Force. That's a heck of a commute. I think you can see the dedication Hall has when you read the piece. I really hope he plays well this summer. I want this guy on the team, either active roster or Practice Squad.
PE.com also has a video interview with King Dunlap. He's added about 25 pounds this year, by design. Juan Castillo and King planned for the bulking up. King was thrown over to RT in the last mini-camp, but he indicated that was just done for that session. He referred to it as a "numbers thing". We'll see. Could be that the return of Max at RG will push Fenuki Tupou back out to RT and that will send King to the left side.
Brian Westbrook talked to the Rams. He recently visited the Redskins. Now he's on his way to Denver. I'm guessing teams are doing research more than showing specific interest. I still have torn feelings with Westy. If he's truly healthy I want him to play. I'm just not sure that's the case. And I hate the thought of seeing him on the field as a pedestrian player. Best of luck to him.
