"When I'm in the game, everybody's a starter", Hollins said. "I think it is a little bit different than previous year".

Green Bay's rush defense was solid last season and ended up ranking 8th in the league with 94.7 yards per game.

The Janis touchdown - Janis' sixth in preseason play in his career, even after missing all of last summer's exhibition games because of a broken hand - gave the Packers a 14-6 lead, adding to Trevor Davis' 68-yard punt return earlier in the half. "It will be a cool atmosphere".

It was a sloppy game overall (what preseason tilt isn't?) and the Eagles walk away with more concerns at cornerback.

What you can't see here, and is nearly as important as Wentz's faith in Matthews is what happened just before the snap.

Already over a week into training camp and it's already apparent the safeties will play an expanded role in the Packers defense. It will be the first time that Green Bay has opened the preseason against the Eagles since visiting Philadelphia in the 2002 opener.

"You don't let your lows define you, and you don't let your highs get you so excited that you get complacent", Smith said. The Eagles are scary-thin at cornerback and can ill afford to lose one of their better players. He didn't get a lot of work. Vick adored that beat-up feeling football players embrace.

Wentz was done after one series. Just a flesh wound, people. Alshon Jeffery did not play, but Matthews looked to be just as involved in the offense as ever, as coach Doug Pederson said earlier this week. "The fact that he's going into his 12th year, you just want to sit down and pick his brain because he's got a lot of knowledge". He may get his chance as Chargers reject Chance Warmack has replaced Brandon Brooks and his twisted ankle at right guard. The whole big picture of playing the quarterback position has the game really slowing down for him as each practice goes along.

It seemed nearly preposterous to think the Packers offensive line could be better this season after losing Pro Bowl guard T.J. "As soon as you make contact with somebody, you're fine". You try and react the way you would. Don't assume that I know everything because of what I've done in the past.' He does not live in the past whatsoever.

What's good for Wentz isn't necessarily good for the Eagles. He started for the Ravens when they won the Super Bowl five years ago. Backup Nick Foles is nursing a swollen elbow. Many rookies and veterans have been counting the days to the first game of the preseason.

The question is this: Is the onus on the second-year coach to stick to the running game or does the offensive line need improve its play before the Eagles can sustain momentum on the ground?
