It’s not really a secret that the fourth preseason game really doesn’t mean much.
The starters typically don’t play, and both the offense and defense rarely shows anything interesting as far as play calling goes.
So it makes sense that Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis and the Birds’ defense are already turning their attention to their Week 1 game against the Jaguars.
The Jags have named Chad Henne their starter but that doesn’t necessarily mean much for the Eagles at this point.
“We’re looking at both quarterbacks,” Davis said. “We’re looking at their offense in general, the structures. They’re very similar quarterbacks. They really are. I’ve watched a lot of both of them. And the young kid [QB Blake] Bortles is making some beautiful throws. He’s hanging in there and doing a nice job. So I still think he could be the one thrown at you.”
