Generally speaking, the Philadelphia Eagles' first preseason game was disappointing.
Against the Eagles defense, the New England Patriots cleaned up nicely the first two drives. First, they ran the ball down the Eagles' throats. The second time with the ball, Tom Brady had his way with Philadelphia's developing secondary.
Offensively for the Eagles, Michael Vick looked sharp, including a 47-yard bomb to DeSean Jackson, but he wasn't in when the rhythm picked up.
By the time Chip Kelly's offense had a head of steam tempo-wise, Nick Foles came in for Vick, leaving fans wishing they'd seen Vick operate in that kind of environment.
Not all was ho-hum as undrafted linebacker Jake Knott impressed and Jackson made Pats corner Aqib Talib look silly.
But there were some players who could have taken the first game as a golden opportunity to show something and failed do so.
With that, there were also players who could build off last week's contest and put themselves in a better position on this team.
Let's take a look at guys who can take advantage in the second game of the preseason.
