McNabb remains confident

Tuesday, November 25, 2008, 12:05 PM
Donovan McNabb obviously could feel the love in the NovaCare auditorium, as he ascended the podium on his 32nd birthday, for a very special episode of the weekly quarterback news conference. As you might have heard, McNabb was benched for the second half last Sunday in what turned out to be an ugly... Read more

What about the running game?

Tuesday, November 25, 2008, 9:15 AM
With all the appropriate attention on the Eagles quarterback situation, the news on the running backs fell a bit under the radar. Correll Buckhalter (medial collateral ligament) said he would not be able to play Thursday but hopes to be ready for the next game, Dec. 7 at the Giants. Brian Westbrook... Read more

Leaning Back to McNabb?

Monday, November 24, 2008, 12:15 AM
There is nothing like a hearty postgame meal at the Chesapeake House I-95 rest stop, late on a Sunday night, with the pungent fumes from the cleaning crew wafting past, to clarify one's thinking. What your Eageltarian is thinking is that Andy Reid is going to try to unring the bell. Reid is expected... Read more

Reid: No decision on QB

Sunday, November 23, 2008, 4:49 PM
After benching Donovan McNabb at halftime and watching Kevin Kolb suffer through a rough second half, Eagles coach Andy Reid now must decide who starts in four days, Thursday night against Arizona.

Rebuilding Looks Like This

Updating from below: (Confusing, but that's how the kids do it on these internets, apparently): Rebuilding sure is fun, isn't it, Eagles fans? Kevin Kolb just led the team downfield, five first downs in a row, first and goal from the Ravens' 1. Kolb tried a QB sneak; it didn't work. No worries, three... Read more

Westbrook will play vs. Ravens
