Team Feeling Good After 2-0 Start

As the Eagles prepare to make their first road trip of the season this Sunday at Detroit, coach Andy Reid said his team knows not to get caught up in being 2-0.

As the Eagles prepare to make their first road trip of the season this Sunday at Detroit, coach Andy Reid said his team knows not to get caught up in being 2-0.

"Our football team is very aware that it is only two games," Reid. "It's a long season and we'll keep it in perspective and ... It's great to be in that position. However, there are a lot of very good football games that we've gotta play down the road here, starting this coming weekend."

The players were given Tuesday off and Reid said they would be back in a normal schedule by returning to practice Wednesday.

"We're ready to go," Reid said. "Most of the coaches came back here last night and just stayed here and got some work down as their adrenaline ran down and then got a little sleep.

Reid said the scouting department was already busy breaking down Detroit. But there's no doubt the team is feeling much better entering the third game of the season 2-0 as opposed to last year's 0-2 start.

"We try to start fast every year, that's our objective," Reid said. "We didn't put much on last year other than we wish we would have started faster. I think the guys, they wanted to win those two games last year just like they did this year."
