LIVE from Chicago in anticipation of the Eagles first preseason game, Jeff McLane called in to go over what we should expect to see tonight. Like what Chip Kelly said this week, the starters will only go about 10-15 snaps, perhaps more if the offense is still on the field. Is there a concern for Jeremy Maclin and how he will do this season after coming off an ACL injury and being depended upon. At training camp this season, Zach Ertz is a guy that could be ready for a breakout season. Looks better this time around than last year. Follow McLane on Twitter.
Back for another season with us is former Eagles and Super Bowl champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Barrett Brooks. Brooks said at this point of the preseason, players are just wanting to get out on the field and start hitting opposing players and bringing them down to the ground. It doesn't matter if you went to a big school in front of 100,000 fans or less, it's still a game int he NFL. Brooks recalls his first preseason and regular season games in the NFL, remembering how nervous he indeed was. Follow Brooks on Twitter.
ESPN 1000 Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson on here for a preview of tonight's game, but really what the Bears are expecting to do this season. Julius Peppers is off to the Packers and Jared Allen has come over from Minnesota to fill that void. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jefferey is probably the best WR tandem in the NFL and Dickerson expects big things from those two. Also, Lamarr Houston has been a nice offseason pickup by the Bears, if he stays healthy.
It's a Friday edition of top tweets!
