Turnovers galore

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 4:11 PM
The Eagles D has forced seven turnovers, but that’s not close to a team record. The record is 12 forced turnovers in a game, which has happened twice, most recently on Dec. 12, 1965 against the Steelers (9 interceptions, three forced fumbles). Read more

I wonder what’s going through Michael Vick’s head about now. He’s at the stadium, but can’t be on the sideline or in the locker room because the Eagles have him on the exempt list. Fox cameras showed Vick standing in a box one row behind Eagles owner Jeffrey... Read more

Another QB change

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 3:29 PM
The Eagles aren’t the only ones with a quarterback change. Panthers coach John Fox has yanked Jake Delhomme and put in Josh McCown. Asante Samuel got into the interception party earlier in the third quarter, picking off Delhomme on a deep ball. It concluded an ugly day for Delhomme, a solid... Read more

McNabb's numbers

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 3:26 PM
Here are McNabb’s numbers on the day: 10 of 18 for 79 yards, two touchdowns, one interception. 80.6 passer rating. Read more

McNabb injured

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 3:25 PM
It’s the worst sight, Five grabbing a knee, writhing in pain. But that’s what we just got after three Panthers defenders hit Donovan McNabb after he scored a touchdown to give the Eagles a 38-10 midway through the third quarter. McNabb walked off the field under his own power, but went... Read more

Halftime stats of note

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 2:50 PM
Halftime stats of note The Eagles have a 21 point lead at halftime, but trail in time of possession 19:02 to 10:58. The Eagles scored three touchdowns during one 4-minute, 57-second stretch of the second quarter in which they ran one offensive play. ... Read more

In case you were wondering

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 2:44 PM
In case you were wondering The last time an Eagles player had at least two picks in a game was on Oct. 8, 2006, when Lito Sheppard intercepted Dallas quarterback Drew Bledsoe twice. Sheldon Brown has two against the Panthers. Read more

Interesting stat

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 2:29 PM
Interesting stat. The last time the Eagles’ offense, defense and special teams scored a touchdown in a game was on Dec. 24, 1994, in a 33-30 loss to Cincinnati. The Eagles got one of each in the second quarter against the Panthers. Also, the last time the Eagles scored 20 points in a quarter... Read more

Two picks for Brown

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 2:21 PM
It’s no secret that Sheldon Brown hasn’t been happy with his situation. He wanted a new contract or to be traded, and he skipped a “voluntary” off-season minicamp to make sure the front office knew he was serious. It didn’t matter. Brown didn’t get a new deal and... Read more

Action Jackson

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 2:09 PM
What a day for the offense. With McNabb and Co. on the sideline, the Eagles have scored 14 points. Talk about a cushion. That’s like giving Brad Lidge a 10-run lead. Well, maybe. DeSean Jackson’s 85-yard punt return was a thing of beauty. He got key blocks from Sheldon Brown and Jason... Read more
