It's the last day of school feeling

After a loooong stay at Lehigh University, the Eagles broke camp today. As the Philadelphia Inquirer writes, it sounds like it was a scene directly out of “Dazed and Confused” when Alice Cooper sings, “School’s Out” where papers are flying and students are ripping up their text books and kids are jumping out of windows (I can’t find a video clip, but I’m sure you know what I mean).

By all accounts, it was a grueling camp, but the best news for Philadelphia was that the team suffered no major injuries.

From the Inquirer:

(Coach Andy) Reid said that there were an extra 200 plays this camp as a result of the extra week of practices. With 13 drafted rookies, more than a dozen undrafted rookies and plenty of other new faces, the extra time allowed all the newbies to get acquainted with the Eagles' ways. And that meant enduring Reid's brutal two-a-days.

“I think that built a foundation," Reid said. "In particular, a young group, and I think they need to be introduced to what the National Football League is all about. It’s faster, there’s more pressure put on you mentally and physically than what you had at the college level, and there’s no better place to figure all that out than right here."

According to Reid, camp also showed that quarterback Kevin Kolb could handle all the responsibilities that come with the job and exemplified further that the Eagles weren't misguided when they traded away Donovan McNabb and promoted Kolb.
 
The best part about this scene was what occurred on the basketball court in the parking lot after school let out.

Apparently, RB LeSean McCoy didn’t believe that QB Michael Vick could dunk the ball and bet him that he couldn’t. Vick proved him wrong, and without taking a running start, flushed the ball through the hoop with a two-handed jam.

Unlike Broncos WR Brandon Marshall, who might have an inflated self-worth of his basketball skills , maybe Vick actually could play in the NBA if there’s an NFL lockout next year.
