On the Cowboys and Redskins both losing Sunday: What Andy said: ``There’s so much parity in this league. There are people who get paid to predict games, not in this building, but in the media and some other professions. I’ll tell you that’s a tough job these days, because on any given... Read more

Monday, October 13, 2008, 12:36 AM
Some observations from the Eagles' win over the San Francisco 49ers, heading into the bye ... * The fourth-quarter gut check: Eagles entered the fourth quarter down by nine points and their season on the brink of collapse.

Challenge Denied; Birds Lead

Sunday, October 12, 2008, 7:13 PM
Well, the Eagles have come back from the dead and are leading 30-26, just barely. David Akers' 38-yard field goal over the right upright was challenged, but held up on review. Then Quintin Mikell ran a J.T. O'Sullivan pick back to the 49ers' 7, but the offense didn't take the opportunity to put the... Read more

Another Special Disaster

Sunday, October 12, 2008, 5:09 PM
Halftime update: The Eagles just put the "special" in special teams yet again. What could be worse than David Akers missing his 10th field goal in a row from 45 yards or farther? Why, Ray McDonald coming right up the middle and blocking the attempt, and it bouncing to former Eagle Donald... Read more

Curtis Inactive

Sunday, October 12, 2008, 3:00 PM
Let's hope Kevin Curtis really enjoyed having Saturday off in the Bay Area, because there was no other apparent reason for the team's top 2007 wideout to travel across the continent. The inactives for today's game in San Francisco were just announced, and Curtis, out since Aug. 21 sports hernia surgery... Read more

Westbrook and the bye

Friday, October 10, 2008, 8:56 PM
In a league with teams that often shroud the obvious in a cloak of mystery, the Eagles did the smart thing today by simply announcing that Brian Westbrook won't be making the cross-country trip to be a high-paid cheerleader Sunday in San Francisco.

Abiamiri's Playing

Thursday, October 9, 2008, 1:32 PM
Practice? Are we talkin' 'bout practice? Who needs it? Apparently, not Victor Abiamiri, who returned to the practice field in earnest on Wednesday for the first time since July 29 wrist surgery, and then was identified Thursday by Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson as the newest member of Johnson's...
