EWU Concludes First Scrimmage

The quarters tossed three touchdowns and threw for 303 yards as the Eagles concluded their first week of practice with a scrimmage. Starter Chris Peerboom was 5-12 for 41 yards, but was overshadowed by backup Chris Nichols, who threw for 209 yards on 12 of 19 passing with 2 scores. The biggest problem according to coach Wulff was inconsistency in the passing game, due to a lack of timing between the QBs and the WRs. His remedy? More practice.

"For a first scrimmage I think it was pretty good," he added. "The blocking was fairly solid and I thought the tackling was pretty darn solid. Again it is not where we need to be but I do think it is something we can definitely build from. And if we can build from this, I am going to be pretty happy when we get going."
