The Eagles wrapped up formal preparations for Saturday's Wild Card round playoff visit to Dallas, a short week in which the challenges were obvious, after Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Cowboys.
"We've gone back and we've analyzed the mistakes we made, and the players have worked hard on correcting them, as have the coaches," Andy Reid said Thursday. "They've been upbeat. These are competitive guys. They don't like what took place last week and so they get back to business and try to right the wrong. That's how they approach it."
Reid got a little testy when a questioner implied that running the ball might keep the Cowboys' offense off the field (and give the Eagles' offense some rhythm).
"You have to do what you think is best to score," he said. "You try any way you possibly can after you've done the studying on that. It's not basketball where you can go into a four-corner stall or that type of thing. That doesn't work in football ... We're going to be who we are and do what we do, and the same (will be true) on both sides of the ball, and special teams."
