Kelly still hasn't announced his starting quarterback, but Vick appears to have the clear edge based on his ability to run and his performance thus far in the two preseason games.
New defensive coordinator Billy Davis is switching to a 3-4 scheme, although he will assuredly mix blends of a 4-3 and 3-4. This will be a difficult transition for a squad already coming off a 4-12 season, one in which the Eagles allowed a franchise-worst 33 passing touchdowns.
Expecting the Eagles to make the playoffs may be too much. A step in the right direction would be a better sign. That would mean seeing an offense that ranks near the top 10 in points scored and a defense that shows steady improvement as the season progresses.
