They said what about the Birds?

Some interesting web chatter to note after the Eagles’ 24-23 victory over Pittsburgh last night.’s Gregg Rosenthal discusses the lessons learned from Thursday night’s NFL games. He says, “Eagles fans will probably start clamoring to see more of rookie quarterback Nick Foles after a fine outing with the third-teamers.”

Rosenthal also reviews the night’s big plays around the league with video clips. The Eagles come up short on Rosenthal’s picks, as he highlights a catch by Emmanuel Sanders and also the illegal hit by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.


Speaking of Cromartie, ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio says DRC should expect to hear from the league office for his penalized hit on Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich. 


“The launching made the outcome more flagrant than the run-of-the-mill helmet-to-helmet hit on defenseless players,” Florio writes. “In fact, it could have justified an ejection.”


What are Steelers’ bloggers saying about the game? The site “SteelersLounge” writes, “The players that will be cut by the Eagles in three weeks are better than the players that will be cut by the Steelers in three weeks.”


And ESPN’s Ashley Fox wrapped up perfectly the sentiments surrounding the night and the past week for coach Andy Reid and his dealings with Eagles fans. “If anything, these past few days have shown how respected Reid is in the city where he works.”
