Flight Night! practice a step back

Eagles fans keep asking me how the team looked at its annual Flight Night! practice.
I tell them something like it may have been the worst Eagles practice I've seen since Ray Rhodes' players were running the asylum in 1998.
Dropped passes, bad throws, missed assignments ... Andy Reid showed a little compassion ending it about 20 minutes early.
I was tempted to snap a shot of offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who had an incredulous look of dismay on his face near the end of the practice. At that point the ground floor of the Linc looked like a mosh pit.
Yeah, it's early.
Yeah, the players legs were tired.
And yeah, you don't win Super Bowls on Flight Night!
But you can lose them by setting the wrong tone.
