TJP: What are some of the biggest questions the Eagles have that need to be answered during the game?

II: Well, 22 players have to be cut by Saturday at 4. The biggest question is who wants to make the team the most? The offense seems pretty set but there are some positions on defense we would like to see improve. Namely pass rushing. Linebacker Marcus Smith has been a disappointment so far. Will he step up tonight? Is he progressing? And how will Matt Barkley do? He hasn’t been consistent so he needs a really good outing tonight. Can he be consistent? Those are the burning questions that need answers tonight.

TJP: Give my readers some new, young Eagles that they should watch for during the game.

II: He’s not entirely new but keep an eye on running back Matthew Tucker. He’s had a great preseason and he’s battling for a back up running back position. Another one to keep an eye on is Henry Josey. He’s considered a long shot at making the final roster but he leads the team in rushing with 12 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown reception.
