Philadelphia Eagles Strategy and Personnel 2008-11-29
PLAYER NOTES


--G Max Jean-Gilles fractured his ankle in Thursday's win over Arizona. He will be placed on injured reserve in the next couple of days.

--G Nick Cole replaced Max Jean-Gilles at right guard Thursday after Jean-Gilles suffered a season-ending ankle injury. But it's still up in the air whether Cole will be the starting right guard next week when the Eagles play the New York Giants.

--G Mike McGlynn, a rookie fourth-rounder who has been inactive for the Eagles' first 12 games, could replace Max Jean-Gilles at right guard next week when the Eagles face the New York Giants in an important NFC East battle. Jean-Gilles suffered a season-ending ankle injury Thursday against Arizona.

--WR Reggie Brown, who had been a starter for the last three years, was essentially the odd man out of the Eagles' four-man receiving rotation Thursday. He was on the field for just five snaps and didn't catch a pass.

--CB Joselio Hanson started at left cornerback Thursday for injured Asante Samuel rather than former Pro Bowler Lito Sheppard.

REPORT CARD VS. CARDINALS

RUSHING OFFENSE: A -- Brian Westbrook notched only his second 100-yard rushing performance of the season. Kyle Eckel got a standing ovation from the crowd when he converted the Eagles' first third-and-one opportunity.

PASSING OFFENSE: A-plus -- Four days after getting benched, Donovan McNabb bounced back in a big way, completing 69.2 percent of his passes and throwing for a season-high four touchdowns. And oh yeah. No interceptions.

RUN DEFENSE: A-plus -- The Eagles tackled Tim Hightower for losses on his first two runs. The Cardinals only ran the ball 10 times for 25 yards.

PASS DEFENSE: A-minus -- No Asante Samuel was supposed to mean no chance for the Eagles' secondary against the Cardinals' passing game. But they picked off Kurt Warner three times and held him to 54 percent on completions.

SPECIAL TEAMS: B-plus -- The Eagles' kickoff coverage unit contained dangerous J.J. Arrington. Quintin Demps had 29- and 30-yard kickoff returns. And David Akers made two 40-plus field-goal attempts. WR DeSean Jackson had his third muffed punt of the season.

COACHING: A -- Andy Reid's benching of Donovan McNabb had the desired effect. He had one of his best games of the season against the Cardinals, throwing four touchdown passes and no interceptions. He also brought the run back to his pass-happy offense as Brian Westbrook notched just his second 100-yard rushing performance.
