6:53 am
obviously last week i played the one drive, that was great. it's nice to go on the field multiple times, establish that rhythm, come over, like you said, work on communication with the line, with the receivers, talk about what we're seeing on the field so when it gets to the regular season that's not something we're trying to work through. >> take a look, you've got some eagles fans supporting the team in preseason. they've got their chip kelly shirts ready for the regular season. it doesn't look like the birds are going to face aaron rodgers. it looks like the packers will hold them out after they lost their leading receiver jordy nelson to a torn acl. i'm john clark for comcast sports netd. thanks, john. you can only see tonight's game on "nbc 10" at 8:00 p.m. pregame coverage starts at 7:30.
