Philadelphia Eagles Strategy and Personnel 2008-12-17
PLAYER NOTES


--WR Reggie Brown was inactive for the second consecutive game. Brown, a starter the last three years, has just 13 catches this season.

--RB Kyle Eckel was activated for the third straight game. He was the team's third running back behind starter Brian Westbrook and Correll Buckhalter. Eckel ran the ball nine times for 28 yards. All nine of his carries came in the fourth quarter after the Eagles had built up a 27-point lead.

--RB Lorenzo Booker was inactive for the fourth time in the last six games. The Eagles chose to activate Kyle Eckel, whom they signed off the street in October, rather than Booker, for whom they traded a third-round pick last April.

--WR Hank Baskett suffered an MCL sprain in his knee in Monday's win over the Browns. He finished the game, but coach Andy Reid said his injury probably is the most serious of the ones coming out of the game.

--FS Brian Dawkins came out of Monday night's game with back spasms, but he is expected to be able to play Sunday against the Redskins.

REPORT CARD VS. BROWNS

PASSING OFFENSE: A -- With his offensive line giving him plenty of time, Donovan McNabb picked the Browns apart, completing 26 of 35 passes. Eagles wideouts combined for 18 catches and two TDs.

RUSHING OFFENSE: C -- Brian Westbrook's streak of 100-yard rushing performances ended at two. He rushed for just 53 yards on 16 carries against the Browns.

PASS DEFENSE: A-plus -- Ken Dorsey became the third quarterback in the last four games to complete less than 50 percent of his passes against the Eagles. The Eagles had two picks, including one by Asante Samuel that he returned 50 yards for a TD.

RUSH DEFENSE: A-plus -- The Eagles held the Browns to 57 yards on 20 carries. In the last five games, they've held opponents to a puny 2.7 yards per carry and have given up just six 10-plus-yard runs.

SPECIAL TEAMS: A-minus -- The Eagles coverage units kept dangerous return man Josh Cribbs in check. KR Quintin Demps averaged 29.3 yards per return. David Akers made all three of his field-goal attempts.

COACHING: C -- Andy Reid's curious play-calling and time-management contributed to the fact that the Eagles were just 2-for-7 in the red zone. He had WR DeSean Jackson throw a pass out of the Wildcat formation on a third-and-goal that was intercepted. Philadelphia mismanaged the clock late in the first half, ran out of timeouts and couldn't run the ball on second-and-goal from the 1. McNabb's fade pass in the end zone was intercepted.
