Philadelphia Eagles Notes, Quotes 2008-10-29
--This has been a difficult season for cornerback Lito Sheppard. The two-time Pro Bowler lost his starting job in March when the Eagles signed Asante Samuel. He's the team's third corner behind Samuel and his best friend, Sheldon Brown, a role he hasn't exactly embraced. But Sheppard had an important interception in Sunday's 27-14 win over the Falcons. He picked off a Matt Ryan-to-Roddy White fade pass in the end zone late in the third quarter when the Falcons were threatening to slice a 10-point deficit to three. He also knocked away several passes in the fourth quarter. "I can't control (when I play)," Sheppard said. "That's not my decision. When I'm out there and have an opportunity to make a play, I need to make it. Today was one of those times. They tested me and it was either make the play or hurt the team." Even though he's no longer a starter, Brown coaxed Sheppard to run out with him during the pre-game introductions. "He didn't want to do it," Brown said. "But I told him you might as well come on. We're in the same boat together. We're both splitting time. He's still a starter too."


--Wide receiver Kevin Curtis made his first appearance of the season Sunday. Curtis, who missed the first six games recovering from sports hernia surgery, had three catches for 45 yards. "I was anxious to get back out there," said Curtis. "It was good to get my feet wet. I was glad I was able to play a lot of snaps. I didn't have quite the stamina and endurance, but I was able to play quite a bit. I think I'm going to be more prepared next week because of it."

--The Eagles had three more takeaways Sunday, giving them 15 for the season. That's just four fewer than they had all of last season. The Eagles have only been able to convert those 15 takeaways into 46 points.
