Our weekly player-by-player breakdown of the Eagles' offense: Donovan McNabb – He showed no signs of still being affected by the rib injury.

Tuesday, September 29, 2009, 9:41 AM
Thanks for all the kind words on yesterday's Man Up on the Eagles' offense. Today we do the defense. Juqua Parker - He brought down Matt Cassel during the Chiefs’ first drive, the second game in a row he's had a sack. Great hustle by Parker in the fourth quarter to run from his position at...

Man up: Eagles' defense vs. Saints

Tuesday, September 22, 2009, 8:28 AM
Yesterday we went through the offense player-by-player. Today, it's the defense. Asante Samuel - A day to forget for Samuel.

Man up: Eagles offense vs. Saints

Monday, September 21, 2009, 11:39 AM
Last week, I re-watched the Eagles' win over the Panthers and wrote separate, player-by-player entries for both the offense and the defense.

'D' breakdown: Player-by-player analysis

Wednesday, September 16, 2009, 8:54 AM
I had a choice to make last night around 10 p.m. after watching Cliff Lee shut out the Nationals. Do I catch up on DVR'd episodes of Rescue Me after I fell way behind last season? Do I kill time on Facebook looking at wedding photos of people I haven't seen or spoken with in over a decade? Or do... Read more

Monday, September 14, 2009, 11:03 AM
I was going to write a notebook-type item on the Eagles' offense after re-watching yesterday's game, but when I was finished taking notes, I realized I had something to say on pretty much every guy. So we'll do it player-by-player: Donovan McNabb - He played well, completing 10 of 18 passes for 79... Read more

Draft profile: Terps WR Heyward-Bey

Friday, April 10, 2009, 11:45 AM
The word constantly associated with Maryland wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is speed. And for good reason. He turned in the fastest 40-time of any player at the Scouting Combine, running a 4.30. That, along with his size (6-foot-2), has draft junkies drooling. But there are also critics, who... Read more
