It was interesting listening to Eagles players and coaches share their experience from three days of joint practices with the Patriots in Philadelphia. There was one common theme and it came back to one player: Tom Brady. Almost everyone we talked with marveled at the way Brady looked at age 36. Some expressed surprise at his size (6-4, 225), maybe not fully aware of how big he is and how well he takes care of himself physically, while others felt the level of competitiveness he showed was at a higher clip than they were accustomed to. Both the Patriots and Eagles got a lot out of last week’s joint practices. For the Eagles, the chance to be in Brady’s presence, in that type of setting where the clubs totaled nearly 7 hours and 30 minutes of practice time, appears to have left an indelible impression. Hearing this from the Eagles also served as a reminder that it’s something that might be taken for granted at times here in New England.
