"I feel like we get better every day, honestly," Kendricks said after Tuesday's practice. "The results aren't there, but I have faith and I ask my teammates to have faith and the fans to have faith. We're getting better every day, without a doubt in my mind."
According to Kendricks, the Eagles cannot afford to sit back and feel sorry for themselves. Though things have not gone according to plan in the early going, the Eagles have to continue to put in the effort to achieve their desired results.
"It's tough considering what we went through last year," said Kendricks. "Things aren't turning out the way we want them too. We've had a couple of games that were close calls and then there was this one where we were there at halftime, and then came back out and went flat. You wish you could have those plays back, but you've got to keep grinding and working."
For veterans like
"It wasn't that hard (to get back to practice)," Barwin said. "It was so bad on Sunday that you want to get out there and get it fixed right away … We had a good day out there today. We need to have a great week of preparation and we just need to go out there and play fearlessly, trust in each other, and just play violently out there and create turnovers. Once we get that rolling, I think it will take off."
Barwin believes that the Eagles are in no position to panic any time soon, but they must learn from their past mistakes and grow as a team.
"I think there's a sense of urgency," said Barwin. "You don't want to be too cool right now because we didn't play very well. Guys aren't panicking, which is good, but I think there's an understanding that it need to improve right away….We understand the situation but obviously we have to do a lot to make sure that what happened two days ago doesn't happen again."
The transition into a 3-4 defense is still an ongoing process and Barwin is confident that the pieces are in place for the Eagles to right the ship fairly quickly.
"We've definitely got the guys here," said Barwin. "I believe in the group here and I think everyone believes in each other. We've ran into some hurdles and we have to continue to correct some of the mistakes, but it is a process. It's not where we want it to be at this point, but like I said after the game, you can turn these things around very quickly and hopefully we do it this week."
The Eagles locker room consists of a number of young and highly-impressionable players. In an effort to make sure that these new Eagles don't become comfortable with losing, veterans like
"I think you go around just like you have been," said Herremans. "You don't hang your head. You run around in practice and try to bring the energy that you can and show them that you're not shutting down and that you have to keep working hard."
"Having guys like Bennie (Logan) and Damion (Square) in the room, (I try) to keep those guys up because if I'm doing something or walking around with my head down then it becomes ‘Okay, well Fletcher is walking around feeling sorry for himself so I'm going to feel sorry for myself,'" said Cox.
It appears as if this motivation aimed towards the younger players is working, as two rookies with increasingly important roles have already moved on from playing one Manning brother and are preparing for the next.
"Everybody's working on trying to get this next win,"
"At the end of the day, it was only one game," said fellow rookie
