Eagles 14, Panthers 9, Thursday, August 15, 2013 We learned: The offense can put up points, regardless of who’s playing. Nick Foles starts every game with a #smh Keystone Kops type flub (Week 1: strip sack. Week 2: throwing a pick in the endzone. I shudder to think what will happen next week). Fortunately, he seems able to shake it off. The very mention of “special teams” will no longer send Eagles fans into a rage fog. We’ll be able to watch kickoffs and punts and returns without large quantities of shots and/or wanting to repeatedly smash our heads into the coffee table. The defense looks better (where do you have to go from the bottom but up?). On the one hand, they were playing the Panthers, but on the other hand, they shut down Cam Newton pretty effectively. Then again, we don’t yet know if 2013 Cam will be freshman Cam or sophomore Cam. So that might not be that impressive a feat. Shady is full of win. Well, we already knew that, of course, but it’s nice to be reminded. Lane Johnson is looking like a wise use of that #4 pick. We’ll see if that assessment holds up once defenses get more tricky. Additionally: Brandon Boykin may be my new favorite Eagle (see above RE: special teams). Felix Jones is going to be cut. Mark my words. Good riddance, Cowboy (never liked him). Remember Vick’s end of half Hail Mary pick? Remember how DJax tackled Panthers’ cornerback Josh Norman? That was some bad-ass **** from a guy who’s not much bigger than me. Also, Josh, you should be embarrassed. Srsly.
