Game 1 Thoughts

- losing trotter was huge. labinjo is a nice player, but not a difference maker. in the end though, the defense didn't lose this game.

- rod coleman is a good player, but artis hicks made him look like an all-timer. the center of our o-line continues to be a weakness with hicks next to honeybuns. really our whole o-line played poorly (that's too bad games in a row). too much pressure up the middle and little success opening holes on running plays. hopefully it's not an omen of what's to come. can't we go out and get an alex gibbs disciple?

- mcnabb needs to start looking at his other receivers again. he can't keep throwing every other pass at owens.

- that pre-game fight was an indicator of how pumped both these teams were for the game. it had the intensity of a playoff game.

- eagles showed nice resolve in scoring the first TD after going down two scores.

- relative to his position, parry is the worst player on the roster by far. he's just awful... can't block, can't catch, can't run. he played LB in college for a reason. the packers cut nick luchey last week. i'd like to see the birds pick him up.

- jevon kearse is no dwight freeney. freeney shows a variety of looks and uses several different moves to rush the passer. combine that with a great motor and he's a pass rushing "freak". "the freak" on the other hand doesn't seem to have a follow up move if an o-lineman is able to stymie his initial thrust. that's two games in a row with no impact.

- the birds have lots of talent on the d-line, why aren't they able to control the run better? they did a better job of it in the second half... wish i had the coaches view.

- with all the hype ed reed's been getting, it's easy to forget how good brian dawkins is... in a word, wow.

- mike patterson tied for the lead in tackles among d-linemen. a nice debut by him.

- all in all a pretty tough loss. not surprising considering all of the turnovers, missed field goals and penalties, but tough nonetheless. it's going to be a miserable f'n week.
