"The offense will be intriguing and watched closely by many. Buy my focus will be on the Eagles secondary and the defensive line. Last season the defense as a whole had a lot of holes in it. They had no pass rusher, and the secondary was soft. Safety Earl Wolff looked promising but spent the last half of the season on the bench. They signed safety Chris Maragos from the Seattle Seahawks who just played in the Superbowl so I will be interested to see how he does. They drafted defensive end Marcus Smith and there is an outside chance he won’t be ready for the season opener since he hasn’t played the outside linebacker position before. I want to see what he does and how the line adjusts to get to the quarterback. Conerback Chuck Nolan is looking promising. I want to see how he adjusts to the Eagles new Dime Package."
