Eagles | Offensive unit still needs to get better

During his press conference Tuesday, Aug. 8, Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg addressed the progress of the offense, particularly the second and third units, who both struggled versus the Oakland Raiders in the Hall of Fame Game Sunday, Aug. 6. "Donovan [McNabb] played pretty well and that was a pretty good start. And, that first unit, the timing was pretty good. It was only nine plays and three passes, but it was a pretty good start. Now, that group can get better though. There are still a few things in there that we can get better at. Second, going with the other units, and none of the quarterbacks played particularly well - we expected much better from them. The ball is coming out of their hand, and they are responsible for everything that happens with the football when it comes out of their hand. However, we have to play better as a unit. Our timing has to be better and in general our whole execution."
