Friday, September 12, 2008, 4:41 PM
Wideout Reggie Brown did his most extensive practice work Friday since injuring his left hamstring on the first play of the Aug. 14 preseason game against Carolina. The Eagles listed Brown as a partial participant and as “questionable” for Monday’s game. “I didn’t do... Read more

Comparing those 2004 Eagles

Friday, September 12, 2008, 7:49 AM
The 2004 Eagles are back in the spotlight thanks to Terrell Owens, who come to think of it helped them get into the spotlight back then, too. The now-Dallas wide receiver said Thursday that the 2008 Cowboys are “way more talented” than that Eagles team, which went to the Super Bowl, winning... Read more

Brown Practicing; Andy Avuncular

Thursday, September 11, 2008, 1:55 PM
Wideout Reggie Brown probably will be listed as "questionable," Eagles coach Andy Reid said, but Brown (hamstring) is practicing, as the Birds begin preparation for Monday night's game at Dallas. Brown also practiced last Wednesday, but felt a pull in his injured hammy and hadn't taken the... Read more

The next Westbrook?

Wednesday, September 10, 2008, 11:24 PM
The folks in Dallas are hoping that they have the next Brian Westbrook in Felix Jones, at least according to the blog of the Dallas Morning News. "That's kind of why we drafted him," Cowboys coach Wade Phillips told reporters. "We felt that he was in that mode of a versatile guy who... Read more

Bulletin Boards Are for Kindergarten

Wednesday, September 10, 2008, 11:37 AM
One of the many, many reasons your Eagletarian could never be a professional athlete is that he just doesn't get "bulletin board material." Most of it, anyway. There aren't any actual bulletin boards in the Eagles' locker room. There's a marker board as you first walk in, that usually says... Read more

Li-TO and T.O.

Tuesday, September 9, 2008, 10:30 AM
Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Johnson said Monday that it was too early to tell how he planned to defend Terrell Owens on Monday night. In last year’s second meeting – a 10-6 Eagles win – Johnson put Lito Sheppard on Owens, who finished with just two receptions for 37 yards. “They’re... Read more

What Andy Reid Said, What Andy Reid Meant

Monday, September 8, 2008, 2:13 PM
On measuring the significance of a victory over a team as seemingly inept as the Rams: What he said: ``I think the Rams have some talent and they have good coaches. I don’t think they’re near as bad as what that score showed.’’ What he meant: ``Man, that was like shooting fish... Read more

Stray Thoughts for the Morning After

Monday, September 8, 2008, 11:18 AM
Cruising around the Internets this morning, looking for reaction to the Eagles' carving up of the Rams yesterday, I didn't find much that was noteworthy. John Clayton from ESPN.com throws out the ceremonial first Donovan McNabb MVP mention, but otherwise, people seem very consumed by an injury suffered... Read more

Well, That Was Impressive

Sunday, September 7, 2008, 5:43 PM
Coaches and players don't gush over season-opening victories. It's kind of an unwritten rule, right up there with never mentioning to an opposing player that his disappointing performance is killing your fantasy team. So, Andy Reid intoned that beating the St. Louis Rams, 38-3, while not allowing... Read more

Not Much to Complain About

Sunday, September 7, 2008, 3:54 PM
You know how athletes like to cite how positive and supportive St. Louis fans are? I'm kind of wondering how that's going right now. Granted, under the Arch, they're probably all about the Cardinals this afternoon and are barely aware their NFL team is playing, but for the people in St. Louis who... Read more
