It's all about the terminology.. we've all heard that before... but it's especially true regarding any new team member in an NFL organization...As if the terminology and demands of the massive playbooks aren't enough, the outdated references to pop culture by well-meaning special teams coordinator Bobby April assure the players attending Eagles rookie camp at the NovaCare Complex this weekend will be in for a head-spinning experience all the way to the end.
April blurted out a comparison to 1970s sitcom "Laverne and Shirley" when trying to make a point to his troops during a particularly humorous interlude highlighting the morning session.
"I had no clue, no clue what he was talking about," admitted UDFA and former Penn State safety Drew Astorino, who was born five years after the show went off the air. "It went right over my head."Terminology...

Was Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick inadvertently disrespected by Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III? Apparently some Eagles fans feel that is the case after an RG3 interview with the DC press took place at the end of April.
A mini “Twitter-ruption” (okay, maybe it wasn’t that bad, but I did say “mini”) took place recently amongst some Eagles fans who felt...
It didn't take Mychal Kendricks long into his first practice to figure out exactly what his new coaches were trying to do.
''I think the whole thing here is to make us feel uncomfortable,'' the new Eagles linebacker said, ''to see how much we can handle in a short amount of time.''
Welcome to the NFL, rookie.
Kendricks and 33 other rookies are...
Today, Outside linebacker Mychal Kendricks shined today in his first rookie mini-camp in 2012. He was able to come up with an interception today, picking off rookie quarterback Nick Foles from the University of Arizona. He was able to read the tight ends route, and come up with a huge play.
Kendricks was chosen by the Eagles last month in the draft, being selected 46th overall...
Eagles rookie defensive tackle Fletcher Cox had a 'Welcome to the NFL' moment on Saturday during the team's rookie camp.

"But I said, 'Yes, sir,' gave him no lip back, and...
