Bob Grotz says Feeley creates a controversy
But of course, And Reid says there is no controversy.
Asked if he knew Feeley had this kind of game in him, Reid said: "We know he does. We know what kind of player he is. He's confident. We're confident in him. He's been through this before and he's won some games for us."
That said, the Philly media seems to have thrown their support behind AJ...

"I'm not out for the season this year," McNabb said last week. "It's a sprain that we can treat and hopefully get back out there again. They're doing great things. You just want to get out there and compete and hopefully try to do whatever it takes to win."
For the first time since McNabb arrived in Philadelphia in 1999, "whatever it takes" signifies something different for the Eagles. Based on that near-miracle last night, it means A.J. Feeley. It means someone at quarterback other than Donovan McNabb. Now, and maybe forever.

That's not a smart move, not with what is at stake, not after the way A.J. Feeley played against the Patriots; the way he played a week earlier against the Miami Dolphins.
McNabb has had 10 games to figure things out, knock off the rust, recover from injury, regain his form. For whatever reason, it hasn't happened. The Eagles were lucky to be 5-5 in those starts.
Finally, I thought the Patriots were rather conciliatory after the game. For all the stories about how arrogant they are, I found them to be pretty nice and complimentary. I think it speaks to the fact that Andy Reid is so well respected around the league.
"They gave us some problems," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said of the Eagles' defense. "They did some things we didn't expect.''
