Preseason Week 1
Site: Lincoln Financial Field
Last Meeting: 9/21/08, L 15 – 6
It’s here! Preseason football is finally here! Yes, we are still a month out from real football, but at this point in the summer I’ll take what I can get. Even if it means the starters play only one series at most.
This game will be the first game for the Eagles since the passing of head coach Andy Reid’s son Garrett. It will certainly be an emotional time for Coach Reid and the Eagles, and my heart goes out to the Reid family.
Top Five Burning Questions
- Is Big Ben even going to bother suiting up for this game? Between his shoulder and his ankle he’s already in midseason form injury-wise.
- What kind of play calling will new offensive coordinator Todd Haley have up his sleeve?
- Who will have a bigger impact: David DeCastro or Mike Adams?
- Since Mike Wallace is still holding out, will Emmanuel Sanders get a chance to shine?
- Can the Steelers win the turnover battle in a meaningless week one preseason game?
