SI's King On Eagles Camp

Sports Illustrated's Peter King, a nationally renowned NFL writer, paid a visit to Eagles camp on Saturday, and wrote about some of his observations in his weekly column Monday Morning Quarterback.

He discussed late defensive coordinator Jim Johnson's legacy, and the reaction around Eagles camp to his passing.

"He was the ultimate problem-solver,'' Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Blache said. "If there was a hole in your bucket, he was like water. He'd find it. There will be a generation of coaches now who will study what Jim did because he got pressure and was sound behind that pressure. That's hard to do.''

King also spoke at length to new Eagles cornerback Ellis Hobbs about his transition from the emotionally restrained Patriots to the more expressive Eagles.

Finally, King compared te Eagles camp to the other four training camps he's been to so far (Redskins, Bills, Steelers, Ravens) and said that it was the most hard-hitting and spritied camp of them all, and was, along with the Ravens' camp, the most intense.
