On Sunday, the Eagles moved training camp to Lincoln Financial Field for the first time. After practice, Michael Vick was walking toward the locker room when he was stopped by another Eagles quarterback – Donovan McNabb.
McNabb – who was on hand with other former players as part of the team’s Alumni Day – talked to Vick in the hallway. They formed a two-man huddle, whispering to each other and nodding from time to time. When he was asked about the specifics of the conversation, McNabb said the two signal callers simply discussed the day’s events.
No wonder the conversation didn’t last very long. Unlike the first two days of training camp, none of the Eagles’ quarterbacks looked particularly sharp on Sunday.
Per usual, Vick and Foles split reps with the first and second teams. Vick took 25 total snaps while Foles had 26. Both quarterbacks took 14 reps with the first team. Vick had 11 snaps with the second team while Foles recorded 12.
By CSNPhilly.com’s unofficial tally, Vick completed nine of his 14 passes. Foles, meanwhile, went nine for 16. Both quarterbacks had one pass dropped by different receivers that should have been caught. Neither, however, did much to impress.
The two best passes of the day were thrown by rookie fourth-round pick Matt Barkley and Dennis Dixon. Barkley took 15 snaps, all with the third team. During seven-on-seven drills, Barkley unleashed a beautiful ball down the right sideline, depositing it over the right shoulder of receiver Greg Salas, who hauled it in with a semi-diving grab. While Salas rolled out of bounds and cornerback Trevard Lindley – who got beat on the play – shook his head a little, the crowd roared.
According to CSNPhilly’s book keeping, Barkley completed nine of his 11 passes on Sunday.
Dixon, during WR-DB one-on-ones, spiraled a pretty deep ball to DeSean Jackson, who beat Bradley Fletcher for a 40-yard score.
