Game Vs. Jaguars: Eagles Offense

WR DeSean Jackson

On how he felt playing tonight: "It felt great. We have been practicing so hard against each other. It was a good feeling to go out there and go against another team. It was great flying around."

On how the first team offense played tonight: "I think we did real good. The intensity was there and (QB Kevin) Kolb was confident every time he came to the huddle. He let us know what we need to do and we left the huddle and went out there to execute. That is all that matters. We had fun doing what we love to do."

On the move he made after a reception in the first quarter: "I am just out there having fun and doing what I do best. My job is to go out there and make plays and that is what I did."

On the calmness that Kevin Kolb brings to this offense: "The biggest thing with Kevin is that he is very calm and intelligent at the same time. There is no panic and no rush. He is back there making great decisions. He's not back there making foolish mistakes, throwing the ball in the wrong place. He makes the right reads and does the right things. As long as we have a quarterback that is doing those things, we will be alright."

On how good he thinks this offense can be: "I think we can be awesome. We are all young and we have been working hard together. I think we will be here a long time and have a lot of things to look forward to. I think we are starting off right. That is what I was saying before the game, it's a new era for us and we need to get started off right. I think we did that tonight."

C Mike McGlynn

On how he thinks the offense executed the run game tonight: "I think we did a real good job running the ball. It comes with us playing together and getting on the same page. The sky is the limit there and we are going to keep improving on that."

On whether blocking for RB LeSean McCoy felt like it did when they were playing together in college: "Yeah, it was pretty cool blocking for him again and seeing him spring some runs. It was exciting."

On how he felt he played tonight: "I think I played really well. I think I did some good things and we ran the ball pretty well. We protected Kevin pretty well, so overall, personally I think I played pretty well. We will see what happened on the tape, but I feel pretty good about it."

On whether he felt the team was excited to get out there tonight: "I think with all of us, we all feel like we have something to prove. There is a lot of people doubting us and saying we are rebuilding. We don't look at it like that. We are here to contend and that is what we want to do. We want to get better every time we get on the field, every opportunity."

QB Michael Vick

On how he felt about his performance tonight: "I felt great to be out there under center. This time last year, under center, I was 15 pounds heavier and two weeks being off home-confinement. I was blessed to have the opportunity to take a year and re-hone my skills and get myself back to playing shape."

On whether he feels the hard work that he has been putting in has begun to pay off: "I felt it paying off. (Offensive coordinator) Marty (Mornhinweg) does a great job of helping a quarterback get into a rhythm and is a great play caller. We did things that I was comfortable with. I think that is very important for a coach to know what his player likes. That is why all three quarterbacks had success tonight and that is why all of us had fun playing the game tonight."

On whether he was calm out there tonight: "I am in a system that helps you in certain ways. It helps me be comfortable, make good decisions and get the ball to the guys who can make plays. This is a great opportunity for me right now to be able to sit back and learn from these great coaches."

On his long pass to WR Riley Cooper: "It was my first play action and to be able to complete a pass 40-yards downfield was a confidence booster. It was also great for Riley. It just gave me a sense of my love for the game, being involved and having a sense of purpose."

On whether he felt tonight was a bit of a rollercoaster after a touchdown run, fumble andinterception: "It was up and down, but the offense was clicking. We were moving the ball up and down the field. The interception I was just trying to do too much and the fumble, the guy hit me and I was supposed to protect the ball. Regardless of whether it was my fault, I have to protect the football. I have to understand that I can't do everything. I kind of got into that mode where, as when I was younger, I started going crazy. Coach Marty pulled me aside, told me I had to play smart and I understood. The next drive I was pretty poised."
