Today camp was special as it was Military Appreciation Day.
Before practice Head coach Chip Kelly spoke to media and went on to say the following:
“No one’s going to play us two-deep because then we’ll just run the ball”
“We’re looking to improve in every aspect, being more efficient at every level”
about QB Mark Sanchez: “I think he’s healthy now … Had 3 OCs with NYJ, picking up 4th system very quickly … Has been very sharp last few days”
Once practice started, it was business as usual as they worked on series of drills with the quarterbacks and running backs and on the other side of the field they had the wide receivers going up against the Safeties. Nick Foles has a series of nice throws to tight end Zach Ertz and Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin in the process making a nice 1 handed catch.
Latter on in practice the worked on special teams, Kicker Alex Henry and Casey Spears took turns kicking field Goals, Henry made all of his kicks including a 50 yard field goal.
one they went to the 7 on 7 drill, Nick Foles made some amazing throws and Maclin was on the end of most of then. Earl Wolff made a nice play by breaking up a deep pass that was going to Arrelious Benn.
The Highlight from practice was the fight between Jeremy Maclin & Bradley Fletcher. Fletcher broke up the pass to Maclin, Maclin took offense to what fletcher was doing and then Punches came and both got off some big shots and several players broke it up.
