The Eagles take on the Patriots in preseason action Friday night, capping off a week of joint practices between the two teams.
Mike Quick, former Eagles wideout and Birds radio color commentator, said joint practices were his favorite part of training camp, breaking up the monotony.
“You have an opportunity to get away from your daily routine and playing against the same guys day-in and day-out, running the same plays and making the same maneuvers,” Quick told CSN's Ron Burke on SportsNet Central. “Then you get the opportunity to go up against somebody else, often time a more talented person.
“This is a talented bunch that they get to practice against every day. I think it just helps to make them sharper.”
