Game Vs. Patriots: Eagles Offense

WR DeSean Jackson

On how exciting the offense can be with the addition of QB Michael Vick: "Oh man, definitely it is. He is a great player. He has a lot to prove to everybody and try to get back on the right track. On the field, he is very explosive. We got some things on this offense now, man."

On how he played tonight and his thoughts on a few dropped balls: "We were just getting back there and getting into the flow of things. Things happen like that; just hopefully it doesn't carry over to the regular season. We are out here working; it's a working progress."

On how he found out the team was going to be signing Vick: "We kind of already knew. (Head) coach (Andy) Reid, he gives everybody a heads up before things happen. We are just going to support (Vick) and hopefully he can come to our team and make some things happen. That is all we look for. It's been an unfortunate situation that he has been through, but he has a chance to make it right."

RB LeSean McCoy

On whether he was happy with his performance tonight: "Oh yeah, definitely. I was trying to get this first game under my belt, get that experience and see how it actually is to play with the ones and see the speed of the game. For the first game it went well."

On how nervous he was tonight playing in his first NFL game: "I was nervous. I was so nervous that the first four plays, I didn't have my mouthpiece in. It was still stuck in my helmet."

FB Leonard Weaver

On how it felt wearing an Eagles jersey tonight: "It felt great. It was a great opportunity to get out there, catch the pigskin a little bit and block some people. It felt good."

On how he felt he played tonight: "Yeah, overall it was a solid day. Obviously, you can always get better with some things. But it was a very good day."

On how he felt the team did tonight:"I think we did pretty well. The first team came out and executed some things. We know what we need to do to get better. Overall, we did well. The young guy (McCoy) ran great tonight. The offensive line did well. (QB) Donovan (McNabb) threw the ball, the receivers caught well, so overall, it was a very good night."

On his opinion of the Michael Vick signing: "Man, I can't wait. I am excited. Vick, I am excited about you coming here. Boy, I can't wait to see you."

RB Eldra Buckley

On how he thought the team played tonight:"I thought we played real good. We came out and did what we had to do. We had a chance to win it at the end."

On how long he has been waiting for tonight: "Man, all my life. I just want to play ball. They gave me a chance and I tried to take advantage of it."
