'30-PLUS CLUB' MIGHT IMPROVE START
But don't confuse it with make the playoffs one year and take two off which is what the Eagles have done the past three years.
"They’re going to work two days and then they’ll have the morning practice off on the third day," said Reid, whose afternoon camp practices are rarely demanding. "We’ll do that throughout camp. Now, you take into consideration that I have two quarterbacks that are 30 and a punter and a kicker that are 30, so the rule will be bent a little bit with those guys. But for the other crew there will be a little different schedule."
Reid said he hatched the idea on his own and that his players "didn’t argue.”
Hmm. Those slow starts plaguing the Eagles at the beginning of the season ... must be the too-tough training camps.
