Eagletarian: Westbrook misses practice again

Friday, November 21, 2008, 1:51 PM
Eagles star running back Brian Westbrook missed his third consecutive day of practice Friday with knee and ankle injuries. He was listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against Baltimore and the Ravens' tough run defense. "He has a sore ankle and a little bit of... Read more

Marty Agrees with Critics

Thursday, November 20, 2008, 2:06 PM
Eagles figures agreeing with their critics is something one does not often encounter in the NovaCare auditorium. Oh, sure, we get "I've got to do a better job with that," from Andy Reid, a default assent so automatic and meaningless that it doesn't really count. Donovan McNabb never agrees... Read more

McNabb: No regrets on OT gaffe

Wednesday, November 19, 2008, 12:17 PM
As reporters waited for Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb to appear in the NovaCare auditorium for his weekly Wednesday news conference, predictions were offered on how the QB would handle the flap over McNabb not knowing there wouldn't be a second overtime in the Birds' 13-13 tie at Cincinnati. Some... Read more

Limping Westbrook

Tuesday, November 18, 2008, 1:45 PM
In the pressbox, we don't get the TV audio, so your Eagletarian had no idea what the FOX announcers were saying about Brian Westbrook until news reports repeated their assertions on Monday. Eagletarian is not surprised the announcers stressed that Westbrook is more limited right now than the team has... Read more

What Andy Said, What Andy Meant (post-Bengals)

Monday, November 17, 2008, 7:53 PM
On Sunday’s 13-13 tie with the Bengals: What Andy said: "I’ve said this before. There are good things that you can find in every game, and things that you need to work on in every game, and that’s how I feel about this one. I look forward to the game that we put the offense... Read more

Wait 'til Next Year

Sunday, November 16, 2008, 9:16 PM
You'll hear the Eagles declare in the coming days that they aren't done, at 5-4-1 going to Baltimore next Sunday. They have to say that. You, obviously, don't have to believe it, and they probably would be shocked if you did. Your Eagletarian has very few answers after the ugliest 13-13 tie ever... Read more

Turn out the lights?

Sunday, November 16, 2008, 7:49 PM
What we're talking about following the Eagles' 13-13 tie with the Bengals: 1. Turn out the lights, the party’s over. With Sunday’s tie, the=2 0Eagles fell to 5-4-1, and their poor play against the one-win Bengals offers little hope that this team can get back on track and make the playoffs... Read more

Still Pretty Awful

Sunday, November 16, 2008, 2:44 PM
Updating again: The Eagles just had to punt after failing to pick up a blitz on third and 7 from the Bengals' 46. They trail 13-10, having clicked offensively for only a handful of plays all day, one of them a 57-yard catch-and-run to Hank Baskett that set up their lone touchdown, on a 2-yard TD pass...

Awful First Quarter

Sunday, November 16, 2008, 1:56 PM
So far, as you might have noticed, Donovan McNabb is colder than the Ohio River, and the Eagles' offense is awful. At the end of the first quarter, McNabb was 1 for 5 for 0 yards and a fumble that set the Bengals up on the Eagles' 1. Being the Bengals, they had to settle for a field goal. The Eagles'...

How About Pregame Fraternization?

Sunday, November 16, 2008, 12:17 PM
We're guessing Donovan McNabb might not be the one to get the heat from the fans this time. Early in warmups for today's game, according to Eagles Web site czar Dave Spadaro and radio analyst Mike Quick, Bengals receiver Ocho Cinco, nee Chad Johnson, jumped into the Eagles' pass receiving line. He... Read more
