Interesting day at NFL officiating clinic. Biggest point of emphasis for 2014..Illegal contact and defensive holding. More offense!

The Eagles CBs are at their best when pressing and allowed to play physical. If officials call a tighter game, the corners just aren’t as effective.
Bill Davis does like to point out that the Eagles adjust to how the officials call a particular game. He and the coaches talk to the players and let them know to get away with what they can, but to be prepared to back off if necessary.
If the above news is true, the coaches may be telling the guys to be careful a lot this year.
