Heading downstairs

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 4:15 PM
Heading to the locker room for the post-game festivities. I'll report back in a bit. Read more

Westbrook update

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 4:14 PM
The Eagles have confirmed that Brian Westbrook has an ankle injury. They wouldn't elaborate. He's obviously done for the day. Read more

Westbrook on the table

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 4:06 PM
Brian Westbrook has been spending a lot of time on the training table behind the Eagles bench. Looks like he's having an issue with his right foot. He got retaped before this last Eagles drive, was in for a bit and then came out of the game while the offense was still on the field. Trainer Rick Burkholder... Read more

Time to go

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 4:01 PM
And so they are headed for the exits. Reggie Bush just scored to put the Saints up 41-20 -- ouch -- with 9 minutes, 36 seconds to play. And fan are leaving en masse. For obvious reasons, much of the focus this week was on the quarterback, and we've learned a little more about Kevin Kolb today. But... Read more

The wildcat

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 3:39 PM
I'm pretty sure he won't criticize it, but I'd love to hear Kevin Kolb's true feelings about how the wildcat impacted his play and the flow of the offense. So far, the Eagles have run eight plays out of the wildcat for 44 yards. It's been nothing special, but it sure has seemed disruptive. Nevertheless... Read more

And so it begins

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 3:12 PM
With 10:43 left in the third quarter, at exactly 3:08 p.m., the fans booed Kevin Kolb and the Eagles offense. Took longer than I thought it would. For the second half, Kolb is 1 of 4 for 4 yards, with an interception. After a Kolb incompletion to Brian Westbrook forced the Eagles to punt, there... Read more

Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 3:06 PM
As Mike Bell dove into the end zone to put the Saints ahead 31-13, Kevin Kolb threw passes on the sideline to tight end Alex Smith. Two costly mistakes have put this game just about out of reach. It's been too easy for the Saints. They've scored on their last three drives, and it hasn't taken long... Read more

Not a good start

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 2:55 PM
Whatever momentum the Eagles generated with that scoring drive to end the first half was erased when Ellis Hobbs fumbled the opening kickoff of the second half. The Saints recovered giving the offense wonderful field position. A few plays later Heath Evans caught a screen pass from Drew Brees and... Read more

Standing O

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 2:36 PM
Kevin Kolb just got a standing O. He led the Eagles down to the Saints 14-yard line, then overshot DeSean Jackson in the end zone. David Akers kicked a field goal to pull the Eagles to 17-13 at halftime. Kolb had a solid first half. His numbers: 14 of 22 for 196 yards, with one touchdown and no picks... Read more

Saints score again

Sunday, September 20, 2009, 2:31 PM
Quintin Mikell just slammed a football into the ground on the sideline. It took just two plays for the Saints to regain the lead, 17-10. First Brees completed a pass to Reggie Bush. Then he found Marques Colston out of the slot in the end zone. Andy Reid barked at the official after the Saints kicked... Read more
