The leader of the Eagles' offensive line, Donovan McNabb pointed out Monday, bears the responsibility of getting all five starters on the same page.

"I told my wife, we have a little beach house where we sneak out there for a week or two during the summer, the day that I can’t leave [to return to work] is the day that it’s time to hang it up," Reid said. "Up to this point, I’ve been as fired up to get back as ever. As long as I have that energy and that feeling, I will coach. I haven’t really thought about the alternative. I love Philadelphia. I'm very proud to be the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles."

NorthJersey.com: Lito Sheppard struggling in New York
...the first-year Jet took it all in stride, despite the fact that he was thrown at nine times by the Giants, and nailed twice for pass interference. The Giants apparently weren’t interested in his résumé, which features two Pro Bowl appearances, and wanted to stay away from rising star Darrelle Revis at the other corner.
Umenyiora: I made a 'very bad moral decision' - NFC East - ESPN
New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora spoke to reporters Tuesday for the first time since he skipped out on practice Monday without offering the club an explanation. Before Umenyiora spoke today, coach Tom Coughlin indicated that he was putting the situation behind him. He also said the any potential punishment for Umenyiora would stay between them.
Ranking the Beast backups - NFC East - ESPN
