Let's get to the links...

Week 8 NFL picks - Jimmy Kempski, Philly.com
I think the best argument for a Giants win this week is that they beat the Vikings and are feeling good about themselves. My rebuttal... They still stink.

Bad Grandpa - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
It is easy to beg the Eagles to cut some of these guys now to get playing time to younger guys, but there is some value to keeping these players around. Isaac Sopoaga is a marginal player, but what if he is able to help guys like Bennie Logan, Clifton Geathers and Damion Square develop? He can teach them how to train, practice and play.

All-22: State Of the Eagles’ Defense - Sheil Kapadia, Birds 24/7
Last week, they were able to keep Tony Romo off-balance and free up rushers all game long, both with the blitz and the threat of the blitz.

Cole Making Impact For Improving 'D' - Danta Klaus, PE.com
Indeed, even without the accumulation of sacks, Cole still leads the team in forced fumbles, with two, and, as Barwin mentioned, has been able to affect the pocket and generate pressure. His stunts and twists on the defensive line have also helped other players get sacks themselves. For example, on Vinny Curry’s second quarter sack against the Dallas Cowboys, Cole looped in behind him and engaged the left guard just as Curry was getting free from him, which allowed Curry to proceed unimpeded and haul down to Tony Romo for a 10-yard loss.

Linc’s structure, playing surface a bigger problem than family-friendly atmosphere - Matt Hammond, The700Level
All told, when it comes to the Eagles slide – nine games, beginning with a 26-23 overtime loss on Oct. 14 last year to the eventual 4-12 Lions – you could argue the Linc is the problem. But not for its cozy, family-friendly feel. For its acoustics and playing surface.

Ryans doing his best to end Eagles' LB jinx - Reuben Frank, CSN Philly
"DeMeco’s been outstanding," Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis said. "He’s the quarterback of our defense, lines them up, keeps them steady when things go bad, and he’s making plays. I’m happy for DeMeco. He’s having a good season. It’s always good to have leadership like that."

Give Eagles' Vick credit for toughness - Marcus Hayes, Daily News
You can't doubt Vick's toughness.

Terrell Owens always gets the ball in new sport - Tim Dahlberg, AP
Terrell Owens has finally found a sport where he doesn't have to worry about getting the ball. T.O. wants to be a professional bowler.

Podcast: Controversy No More – EaglesFanCast 153
All in all, we hope this was a minor stumble on the season for Foles, but we will not get to see how he recovers, as he will sit out with a concussion in the game against the New York Giants this coming Sunday. Michael Vick will return from his hamstring injury and start the game, hoping to bring a win with him. We all hope for that.
