There are five games remaining in the NFL season and the Philadelphia Eagles have the easiest remaining schedule of every NFC playoff contender.
The Eagles had a statement win over the Colts Sunday and they reached some interesting milestones in doing so.
Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg spoke with the media yesterday and was asked whether running the ball is the way to beat the Colts given that their strength of defense is the pass rush. The Colts come into this game with the 5th worst run defense in the NFL.
How do Kevin Kolb, Michael Vick, and Mevin Volb stack up statistically to the rest of the NFL?
It was clear after watching the Eagles front seven get muscled around by the Redskins last week, that something had to be done. For Sean McDermott, one of those things involved a change at starter in the linebacking corps. Akeem Jordan was benched in favor of second year man Moise Fokou at SAM.

The team has moved up and down the field at will, only to bog down once they get inside the 20. The reasons for these struggles have been debated to death and the blame for the struggles has been spread all over the place.
The Eagles have completed their preseason and now have until Saturday to trim their roster to 53. Here's who I think doesn't make the cut.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid has named DeSean Jackson and Ellis Hobbs as his starting return men.
Forbes magazine has released their annual ranking of NFL franchises by value. The Eagles dropped to #7 having been leapfrogged by the Giants and Jets after those teams completed their new stadium.
Donovan McNabb has always been something of an enigma. He rarely ever says the wrong thing, but also rarely ever gives you a real insight into what he thinks. He was also always quick to take responsibility for losses, but also offered caveats ("we showed our youth").
