Watching the Giants

Sunday, November 30, 2008, 5:33 PM
While breathing a sigh of relief that no Eagles players saw fit to spice up your Eagletarian's weekend by accidentally shooting themselves, we happened to take in a fair portion of the New York Giants' 23-7 victory over the host Redskins Sunday. Hey, don't know if anybody else has noticed this, but... Read more

Another late season rally?

Sunday, November 30, 2008, 10:09 AM
One of the statistics that the Eagles like to tout is how well the team has done in the final month of the season under Andy Reid. If you are still holding out hope that this team can make the playoffs, you obviously have to hope for similar success and some help along the way. In 2006, the Eagles... Read more

Happy Andy

Friday, November 28, 2008, 11:17 AM
For once, the need to do a better job putting players in positions to make plays was nowhere to be found at an Andy Reid postgame news conference. No pieces of blame-sharing pie were served. On Black Friday, the Eagles' coach was as bubbly as a shopper waving discount coupons. It was the morning after... Read more

Westbrook fights through the pain

Friday, November 28, 2008, 12:01 AM
A bum knee that has robbed him of his explosiveness. A taking-forever-to-heal sore ankle that won’t let him make those stop-on-a-dime cuts we’re so accustomed to seeing him make. A short week to recover from the beating he took in Sunday’s loss to the Ravens and get ready for last... Read more

Jean-Gilles breaks ankle

Thursday, November 27, 2008, 11:36 PM
Tears streamed down the face of Max Jean-Gilles as the Eagles’ right guard left the field on a slow-moving cart. Just 12 seconds from halftime, Jean-Gilles was blocking as Donovan McNabb scrambled, a flag down for holding on center Jamaal Jackson. Cardinals linebacker Chike Okeafor tried to... Read more

Encouraging Start

Thursday, November 27, 2008, 8:51 PM
The Eagles scored on their first two drives after starting the game having gone 99 minutes and 29 seconds without scoring an offensive touchdown. Clearly, what this team needs is to work on a short week, in which Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg don't have time to overthink the offense. The Eagles... Read more

No Samuel; Hanson Starting

Thursday, November 27, 2008, 6:59 PM
The inactives for tonight's Thanksgiving feast have been announced and as expected, Eagles corner Asante Samuel will sit with a neck injury. It's a little bit of a surprise that Joselio Hanson, instead of Lito Sheppard, will replace Samuel. Sheppard was fooled badly on a 53-yard touchdown play in Sunday's... Read more

Game Day: Cardinals at Eagles

Thursday, November 27, 2008, 6:15 AM
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who have made stopping off at Eagletarian a part of how you follow the Eagles. We have enjoyed bringing it to you and look forward to keeping at it during what figures to be an interesting rest of the season and beyond ... The Birds again look to bounce back with... Read more

Eagles' Samuel doubtful for Cardinals

Wednesday, November 26, 2008, 1:28 PM
Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel was listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game against Arizona because of a neck stinger. Samuel was injured in the Eagles' loss to Baltimore last Sunday and has not practiced this week. That is bad news for a secondary that has just one interception in its last... Read more

What we're watching: Eagles-Cardinals

Tuesday, November 25, 2008, 6:33 PM
Here is our weekly look at what we'll be watching during the Eagles game ... 1. Hitting Warner. The Giants only sacked Kurt Warner once last week, but they got several good licks on him and it affected both his comfort level in the pocket and his performance. His .615 completion percentage was his... Read more
