The preseason is in the books and soon, we will know the 53 players that will make up the 2014 Philadelphia Eagles. Just 10 days remain before the Eagles take the field for the regular-season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Having watched four preseason games, there are a lot of opinions and thoughts about the players that should make the team and shouldn’t make the team.
Thursday night's preseason finale for the Eagles didn't feature any starters. That was known well before kickoff. But the depth of the Eagles potential roster showed in the final audition.
Headed by Matt Barkley starting at quarterback and powered by players on the lower end of the depth chart, the Eagles cruised to a 37-7 victory over the New York Jets in Week 4 of the preseason at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Eagles first two preseason games featured some highs and some lows. Both ended with the same result.
There was very little negative in the team's first home game of the preseason. The Eagles dominated on offense and turned in a much-improved defensive performance to claim their first win of the preseason in convincing fashion, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-21, on Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field.
For the first time since January, the Eagles play a game on their home turf.
The Eagles continue to have a lot to prove in the final two games before the regular season begins. But Thursday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers may shed some light on the Eagles roster breakdown as they head into Week 1.
The Week 3 meeting between the Eagles and Steelers is set to kick off at 7:30 p.m.
