McGlynn for Herremans?

Friday, December 19, 2008, 2:47 PM
When the season started, to find where Mike McGlynn fit in, you just about needed to analyze the Eagles' depth chart with an electron microscope. The top sub at guard was Max Jean-Gilles. The next was backup center Nick Cole. And then, a small step above the guys on the practice squad was McGlynn... Read more

What we're watching: Eagles-Redskins II

Thursday, December 18, 2008, 6:55 PM
Our weekly look at what we will be watching during Sunday's Eagles game: 1. Red-zone success: An early-season problem is rearing its ugly head again. The Eagles were just 2-for-7 in the red zone vs. Cleveland and 0-for-3 the week before vs. the Giants. Their inability to convert a fourth-quarter third-and-1... Read more

Reggie's Back, But ...

Thursday, December 18, 2008, 1:35 PM
With Hank Baskett (knee) apparently unlikely to play, and Kevin Curtis (calf) also hobbled, Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Thursday that Reggie Brown will be dusted off and used in Sunday's game at Washington -- perhaps as a starter. Brown, a starter going into the season, has... Read more

Donovan, the Motivational Tool

Wednesday, December 17, 2008, 3:10 PM
Donovan McNabb seemed to be feeling a lot like another guy from Illinois Wednesday, a guy who once was asked how he liked being President. No, not the fellow that McNabb registered to vote so he could cast a ballot for last month -- the other guy from Illinois. Older guy. Jamie Moyer probably voted... Read more

Could Eagles-Dallas go prime time?

Wednesday, December 17, 2008, 12:45 PM
If you are waiting to find out whether the Eagles game against Dallas in Week 17 will be a Sunday night affair, you will have to wait a little longer. The deadline for a decision is usually 12 days before the game — which was yesterday. However, the NFL allows for more time when it comes to... Read more

Tuesday, December 16, 2008, 4:07 PM
Two members of the Eagles secondary are heading to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl. Brian Dawkins and Asante Samuel were both selected to the NFC team.

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

Tuesday, December 16, 2008, 2:18 PM
On Asante Samuel dropping the football before he crossed the goal line on his interception return: What Andy said: ``We’ll address that tomorrow. You’ve got to make sure that you score before you let the ball go.’’ What Andy meant: ``Starting immediately, we’re instituting... Read more

Stupidity Not Fatal, So Far

Monday, December 15, 2008, 9:14 PM
The opening drives were very similar, the difference being that the Eagles got a pretty 14-yard touchdown pass from Donovan McNabb to Kevin Curtis at the end of theirs, and the Browns got a third-down drop from Darnell Dinkins and a 27-yard Phil Dawson field goal. The Eagles drove 64 yards in eight... Read more

Reggie Sits Again

Monday, December 15, 2008, 7:18 PM
No huge surprises in the Eagles' inactive list for tonight's game. Kyle Eckel is active again at running back, but with Correll Buckhalter back, Lorenzo Booker will sit. Just as he was last week, wideout Reggie Brown will be by far the most prominent healthy Eagle not in uniform. Brown's steady decline... Read more
