Former Eagles Edwards, Douglas And Reilly To Call Preseason Games

The Philadelphia Eagles and the Eagles Television Network announced their 2009 pre-season broadcast lineup today, and it includes three former Eagles. The booth will be comprised of Hugh Douglas, Kevin Reilly, and former NFL coach Herman Edwards – all of whom donned the Eagles jersey on the field during their playing careers. Rounding out the crew will be PhiladelphiaEagles.com's own Dave Spadaro on the sidelines.

With over 25 years of NFL playing experience between them, this year's commentators will bring excitement as well as on-field knowledge into the booth, all under the direction of Artie Kempner, FOX NFL director and eight time Sports Emmy winner.

"I'm looking forward to the upcoming NFL season and I am especially thrilled to spend the pre-season in the booth for the Eagles," said Edwards, who will be a color analyst. "It's always a great feeling to come back to my original NFL home in Philly, as I have many fond memories here as a player. Eagles' fans are some of the most loyal and passionate in the NFL, which always makes for an exciting game day atmosphere."

This crew will be a part of the Eagles games on Thursday, August 13th versus New England, Thursday, August 27th versus Jacksonville and Thursday, September 3rd when the Eagles play at the New York Jets. All games will be shown on 6ABC locally (Satellite: Galaxy 3C (95 degrees West); Transponder 21C).

And don't forget that one lucky Eagles fan will get to join the broadcast team and be an Eagles sideline reporter on gameday! Eagles Television Network (ETN) thanks to the "Time's Yours" contest.
