The Linc - Jeremy Maclin, Sean Jones, & the Cowboys' motivation

Jones strengthens Eagles' safety net | | The News Journal
For 11 years, the Eagles played one person at free safety and never had reason to change.

Les Bowen: The bottom line: Maclin catching on quickly | Philadelphia Daily News | 11/03/2009
It really is amazing, when you think back a few years, to the kinds of receivers Reid seemed to gravitate toward; no one would have pictured the Birds drafting and starting Jackson and Maclin. Somewhere along the way, Big Red seems to have decided that star-level talent and hard-nosed, team-first play are not mutually exclusive at the wide receiver position, after all.

"I think it's important certainly," Phillips said. "This is this year's team. I think everybody remembers last year. Not all of our players were on this team last year and we split with them last year, but the last game really hurt us. And the guys that were there certainly remember it."

Eagles Notes: Jones, Westbrook and Blocking
First-round pick Jeremy Maclin made a spectacular play Sunday, snagging a 23-yard touchdown pass in double coverage. But what was nearly as notable, was his block to help spring fullback Leonard Weaver on a 41-yard touchdown run. "It’s the second week in a row that you’ve seen our rookie downfield leading runners into the end zone or making big blocks downfield," Reid said. Maclin also had a nice block against Washington during DeSean Jackson’s 67-yard touchdown run.

"I watched it the week after the game," Crayton said Monday. "It was just kind of disgusting. It was just disgusting to watch. ... We just flat out got our tails whipped, man. No excuses or anything like that. They played good. They showed up to play that day, and they wanted to win to get into the playoffs, and we didn’t. We had to sulk and deal with that the whole off-season."

Eagles Notebook: Peters wasn't as good as the Eagles | Philadelphia Daily News | 11/03/2009
It wasn't the best of games for left tackle Jason Peters. His fingerprints were on both of the Giants' sacks of Donovan McNabb. He also was flagged for a holding penalty(his first of the year) inside the Giants' 10-yard line on the Eagles' second possession. Peters wasn't totally to blame for either of the sacks.

Unless there's a setback -- such as more headaches -- it looks like Westbrook will play against the Cowboys. He's not having a great season by his standards, but he's still a player teams have to account for. And I'm sure he was envious when he saw Reid and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg calling all those running plays against the Giants.
