An executive decision was made to cut the Up-Down Drill out of the day-after coverage, but when you have a blog you can do almost anything you want. So the Up-Down Drill lives and the ups and the downs this season will have new, more entertaining graphics and be posted after I've watched the video replay.
In honor of the Eagles' next opponent, everybody's favorite receiver will introduce the ups and downs this afternoon. Happy T.O. will handle the ups and crying T.O. represents the downs.
The offensive line gave the quarterback all kinds of time and, in turn, the quarterback gave the Rams all kinds of trouble.
Does he still play for the Rams?
The running back's stiff arm on Oshiomogho Atogwe at the end of his 18-yard run was every bit as impressive as Sheldon Brown's sinus-clearing hit of Steven Jackson.
He looked scared out there. Of course, you'd look scared, too, if the Rams' offensive line was in charge of protecting you.
Best debut since Spamalot hit the Broadway theaters.
This is for everybody who has the Eagles' defense on their fantasy team, because other than his botched pick-six opportunity, the cornerback played well in his Philly debut.
It's a good sign for Temple that kids from that school are recording sacks on Saturday and Sunday these days at the Linc.
A check of the stat sheet shows he does still play for the Rams, although he provided more yards for the Eagles (a stupid 15-yard penalty) than he did for the Rams (1 catch for 9 yards).
He didn't have 100 yards receiving like Jackson, Greg Lewis and Hank Baskett, but he did have two huge third-down catches on the Eagles' second TD drive.
His job as the Rams' head coach is about as secure as his quarterback's pocket.
