STAFF PREDICTIONS Les Bowen: Eagles, 27-20 (For Les' expanded prediction, click here) Ed Barkowitz: Eagles, 28-10 Bill... Read more

Samuel OK for Cincy

Friday, November 14, 2008, 3:53 PM
Cornerback Asante Samuel returned to practice Friday and is not expected to be bothered this weekend by the hip injury that kept Samuel out of Thursday's workout. That might be even more important than usual, given that the Bengals' wide receivers are the strength of their team. In other Eagles news... Read more

They Call Him MR Ocho Cinco

Thursday, November 13, 2008, 1:16 PM
Donovan McNabb was back at practice today and available to talk about his counseling of Bengals receiver Chad Johnson/Ocho Cinco, who was extremely unhappy with his surroundings last offseason. Johnson/Cinco told reporters on a conference call Wednesday that McNabb had lent a sympathetic ear, and that... Read more

Worst-Case Scenario

Wednesday, November 12, 2008, 7:10 AM
As the Eagles slip toward the playoff margins, this is not the "failure" scenario I envisioned in the preseason. I thought if the Birds weren't pretty solid this year, it would be because either Donovan McNabb or Brian Westbrook suffered a serious, season-altering injury. I figured the most... Read more

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

Monday, November 10, 2008, 5:40 PM
On the ill-fated fourth-and-one play with 2 minutes left in which the Giants stopped Brian Westbrook for no gain: What Andy said: "It was what we thought was our best option. We thought that was the right thing to do. We can all go back and second-guess it and you can do that. But that’s... Read more

Still an Ugly Loss

Monday, November 10, 2008, 1:21 PM
Andy Reid held a day-after news conference that shockingly shed little light on how the Eagles got manhandled on both sides of the ball Sunday night in losing to the Giants. Reid then met with his team in the NovaCare auditorium. The most relevant Reid quote for today might actually have come from... Read more

What about Westbrook?

Monday, November 10, 2008, 1:24 AM
What we're talking about after the Eagles' loss to the Giants: 1. What happened to Westbrook?: The Eagles’ bread-and-butter running back touched the ball just 16 times and was held to 2 yards per carry by the Giants’ defense. 2. The run defense: The Giants gashed the Eagles for 219 rushing... Read more

Down 6 in the Fourth

Sunday, November 9, 2008, 10:06 PM
Updating with the third quarter: None of that first-half dsiparity meant much when the Eagles drove a snappy 60 yards, after a 37-yard Demps return of the second-half kickoff, scoring on a very nice 7-yard pass to Hank Baskett in the back of the end zone. Somehow, the Eagles were winning, 24-20. The... Read more

Cole Starting for Herremans

Sunday, November 9, 2008, 7:28 PM
Big update: You might have just noticed Nick Cole introduced with the first team offense. That's because Todd Herremans, last week's touchdown-scorer, is not in the starting lineup. A team spokesman called it a "coach's decision." No details were available. Generally, some sort of team rules/tardiness... Read more
