Les Bowen: Eagles' further review: Taking issue with Reid's 'maturation process' | Philadelphia Daily News | 10/12/2010
What we do know is that when Reid casually benched his hand-picked Donovan McNabb successor, he opened the floodgates. The people who wanted to see Kolb fail, because they were angry about how McNabb was treated, or something, were given validation from the head coach. Suddenly, in the popular discourse, Kolb wasn't just struggling with inexperience and a porous line, he was "scared." This was as hateful and unfair as all the "puking" scorn directed at McNabb. Funny, Kolb didn't look real scared to me when he tucked the ball and sprinted 19 yards up the middle on third and 18 Sunday night. Or in completing the first nine passes of his first-ever road start.

Man Up: Allen continues to make plays | Philly | 10/11/2010
Impressive performance from Allen. It started early when he dropped Gore for a 4-yard loss. He was the Eagles' most frequent blitzer as McDermott sent him after Smith eight times. He twice batted down passes, including one on the final drive that could have resulted in a big play to Gore had it been completed. Last year, I remember doing Man Ups and having nothing to say about the free safeties because they were invisible. This year, Allen is making plays on a weekly basis.

If Reid will continue to feed McCoy the ball, he's going to have a big season. Right now, Ahmad Bradshaw and McCoy are, hands down, the best backs in the division. Felix Jones looked good Sunday, but he needs to put a couple of strong games together.

The Eagles needed a big play, and Trevor Laws thought he had one Sunday night. With the defense looking tired and needing a stop to preserve a much-needed victory, Laws closed in on 49ers quarterback Alex Smith with no blockers around to intervene.
