Eagles coaches fight on sideline during game
In the first half of the Eagles' 38-20 loss to the Patriots, defensive line coach Jim Washburn and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg got into a brief but heated verbal exchange on the sideline. The exchange actually happened early, when the Eagles still held a lead. While it was brief, the two had to be separated by Eagles sideline personnel.

Apathy is best anti-Reid weapon | Philadelphia Daily News | 11/27/2011
In the 17 years that I've been in Philadelphia, I've seen Eagles fans leave a game early when the cause seemed to be lost, but I don't ever recall them starting a mass exodus with more than 6 minutes left in the third quarter. - John Smallwood

McCoy: thought I'd get more touches | Philadelphia Inquirer | 11/27/2011
LeSean McCoy paused, composed his thoughts. McCoy is one of the Eagles best young talents. He is often honest, but he is also a team player who is careful to say the right things. McCoy, entered this week as the NFL's leading rusher and the Eagles biggest threat. So did he think he would get more than 10 carries? "I thought I'd touch the ball a little bit more," McCoy said. "I don't ever judge the calls. We made some plays downfield early so maybe that was the reason why. We just got down real early."

The worst individual performance of the game on offense was that of wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who needed to play big with Michael Vick and Jeremy Maclin out and instead dropped two touchdown passes. Vince Young wasn't throwing the ball so well that he could afford to have receivers dropping the ball, and Jackson's drops were crushing

Okay, picking on one player after a game like this is sorta dumb. I fully admit that. Still, you can’t help but be pissed off at DeSean Jackson after he dropped a pair of TD passes in a game that was close at the time. Those were critical plays. You need star players to deliver in big games. DeSean isn’t the reason we lost, but his sloppy play is a symbol of what’s wrong with this team. Sloppy, mistake-filled football. Lots of talent and potential, but not enough production.
