ICYMI: The Week In Review

Posted Jun 8, 2014

If you missed any of our Eagles coverage from the past week, don't worry. We've got you covered in our ICYMI: The Week In Review ...

Zach Ertz Relishing First OTAs

"Ertz played a total of 450 offensive snaps, 41 percent of the team's total, in 2013. As for his role in 2014, Ertz thinks the latter half of his rookie year offered a preview. 'I think you saw it in the second half of the season, what kind of went on as I was used all over the field," Ertz said. "Hopefully some more of that.'"

Alex Henery Looks To Get His Groove Back

"I think a lot of it is body position and finishing through the ball. My kickoffs the last few years have been more of a field goal style. Some of the guys who have a lot of touchbacks, there's more finish through the ball getting that momentum going up and through. That's the big thing I've been working on," said Henery, a fourth-round pick of the Eagles in 2011. "I'm just trying to add yards onto my kickoffs."

Brent Celek: This Team Will Fight

"When things get tough, those good teams that I've been on, the guys come together. In any season, you're going to have ups and downs, but it's when you're having those low points whether you either come together or spread apart," Celek said. "I think this team is definitely a team that if we have some adversity guys are going to come together and we're going to persevere."

Team MVP? And The Fans Say ...

"From this perspective, the most valuable player on any football team is the quarterback. There is the very true notion that the sum of the parts is greater than any single player, but it is also true that in no sport is there a position more vital than quarterback in football."

Carroll II Enjoying Fast-Paced Lifestyle In Philly

“I think my biggest strengths are that I’m physical, I’m tough, I’m fast and I’m stronger than a lot of people think, but I think my biggest attribute is that I’m fast,” Carroll explained. “I had to lineup against the fastest receivers week in and week out. It helped me out that when I was in Miami I was lined up against Mike Wallace I think every day, and that’s really what helped me out this past season. Going against him week in and week out, I think that’s what really bumped up what I’m able to do from a speed standpoint.”

Chemistry, Cohesion Aid Eagles Defense

"I think (the locker room chemistry) is awesome," Williams explained. "I think we have a lot of guys that fit right in. We have a lot of guys that are hungry and that aren’t going to be satisfied with being mediocre. That’s a great thing to have in the locker room. I think we are all competitors, and I think we all want to get better each and every day."

A Solid Move To Extend OL Barbre

"You could say it's the first time I've had some security in the NFL," said Barbre on Tuesday afternoon. "Knowing that the team wants me here for an extended period of time, that's a good feeling. Now it's just about continuing to work hard and improving. I feel like if you stop improving then you're not getting ahead, and you have to stay ahead to stay in this league."

Eagles Sign Barbre To Three-Year Extension

"Allen has great versatility and his ability to play both outside and inside on the offensive line makes him so valuable to what we do,” said Eagles head coach Chip Kelly. “He’s been in this league for a number of years and we know we can count on him to step up and fill in whenever he is called upon. When Jason Peters went down in Green Bay last season, Allen jumped right in and our offense didn’t miss a beat."

McCoy Looks To Benefit From Sproles

"If he takes some of the load off, and in that fourth quarter I'm fresh; I know a defense won't like to see that," McCoy said.

Practice Notes: Second Week Of OTAs Begin

"There is a lot of optimism regarding Zach Ertz as the tight end enters his second NFL season, but don't forget about Brent Celek. The versatile veteran lines up as both an in-line and flexed-out tight end. During the final 11-on-11 drill, Celek got the offense into the red zone after hauling in a laser over the middle from Foles. Earlier during 7-on-7 drills, the two also connected on a beautiful post-corner route."

An Old Habit Remains For Jordan Matthews

"Matthews' impressive blend of speed, size and athleticism was on full display, but there was something else that Matthews did that garnered some attention. Every time he caught the ball in a team drill, he didn’t slow down and come to a stop after making the catch. Instead, he finished the play, running to the end zone full speed, no matter how many yards away he was from the goal line."
