NFC Beast Report: Eagles Edition

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

  • Nick Fierro says the Eagles are attempting to put the "special" back in special teams. Quintin Demps and DeSean Jackson are bringing back memories of the Brian Mitchell era -- but it's still early. Personally, I enjoyed the vastly underrated Reno Mahe era.

  • WR Kevin Curtis doesn't think his sports hernia was as severe as Donovan McNabb's and L.J. Smith's. But he's not going to rush it, according to the Reading Eagle.

  • DT Dan "Glecko" looks like a lock to make the team. Pretty remarkable story when you consider that the Eagles were hoping to use Klecko as a fullback.

  • Ashley Fox has a fun story about the one day of the week players have off.

  • Geez, could someone give Ashley a day off? She has another column on what it's like to sit through an Andy Reid news conference.
