After the excitement of Monday night’s win over the Washington Redskins, there are two more opportunities in the next five days to see if the Philadelphia Eagles can do it again, first against San Diego on Sunday, then on Thursday versus Andy Reid and the Chiefs.

Sunday’s game against the Chargers is the home opener at the Linc. The Birds hope to surge to 2-0, while San Diego seeks to avenge their loss to the Texans, which saw them squander a 21-point lead over the Houston Texans.

Chip Kelly said this week that he was not thrilled with the pace of his team’s offense. He wants them to be even faster. Quite a bold statement, as those who watched the first half of Monday’s game could barely keep up with the rapid-fire pace of the plays.

It was a sensory experience. The loud music and the playlists (featuring the likes of Duran Duran, Tupac, Flo Rida, Ozzy Osbourne and the Dropkick Murphys, to name a few). The speed at which plays were conducted, with only 10 seconds “down” time. Where to look? What to watch for?

The Daily News’ Les Bowen, like many in attendance,  went to where much ink already has been and will continue to focus in the next several months: the quarterbacks. Continue reading ‘A sensory experience: Speed, music and energy the new norms at Philadelphia Eagles practice’
