Eagles Host Second Open Practice For 2014 Season

Posted: Updated:

We're just days away from the Eagles first preseason game of the 2014 season and the fans couldn't be more ready for things to kick off.

The team hosted their second open practice of this summer's training camp at Lincoln Financial Field Sunday afternoon.

The event was free to the public and thousands of people took advantage of getting an up close and personal look at some of their favorite players.

If you can believe it, we're just five weeks away from opening weekend in the NFL.

The 2014 Philadelphia Eagles took the field to a warm reception from the fans during a free open practice at the Linc.

Before the gates opened, some fans played a game of parking lot pigskin to prepare.

One group prepped in a different way, beginning their tailgating at 6 in the morning.

"We're ready for the season. We're ready for a Super Bowl. This year's the year right boys? Wooo!" Eagles fan Dave Brous said.

The Pietrzak's couldn't wait to introduce their 14-month old son Eddie to a family tradition.

"He's excited. It's going to be the first of many. We're pumped,” Jamie and Edward Pietrzak said.

Inside the Philly faithful filled the Linc with jerseys of former and current Eagles greats.

Many of those green jerseys flocked to more memorabilia of their favorite team.

"Right here, game balls for the Eagles,” one vendor shouted.

Plus the Linc has a new look.

"I think it's amazing. Everything they did, a lot of hard work went into it and it's going to pay off in the long run,” fan Andrew Prince said.

Fans are hoping the new additions on the field will also be worth the investment.

"They look really good, but we just got to see them play together. That's why we coming out, we're going to come out all the time so we can see how they formulate as a team,” Pamela Cooper said.

Hey it's a new season, and everyone is a contender...

The Eagles play their first preseason game Friday at Soldier Field against the Chicago Bears.

In just five weeks, they kick off the regular season at the Linc against the Jaguars.
