Philadelphia Eagles Strategy and Personnel 2008-12-23
PLAYER NOTES


--DE Victor Abiamiri suffered what appears to be a mild sprain of his foot and probably won't play Sunday against Dallas.

--MLB Stewart Bradley suffered a fractured rib in Sunday's loss to Washington. After the game, he was in serious pain. He is very questionable for Sunday's game.

--RT Jon Runyan got through Sunday's game without aggravating his already painful knee and ankle injuries. He got beat by the Redskins' Jason Taylor on the play in which Taylor stripped the ball from quarterback Donovan McNabb. That fumble set up the Redskins' only touchdown.

--WR Kevin Curtis, who has a calf strain, warmed up before Sunday's game against Washington, but he was unable to go and was deactivated.

--WR Hank Baskett, who missed Sunday's game with a knee sprain, is doing better. Coach Andy Reid is hopeful he'll be able to play this week.

REPORT CARD VS. REDSKINS

PASSING OFFENSE: D -- The absence of Hank Baskett and Kevin Curtis hurt a passing game that was plagued by the dropsies. DeSean Jackson had two big drops, including one in the end zone. Tight end L.J. Smith let at least three balls slip through his hands.

RUSHING OFFENSE: D -- The Redskins put eight men in the box most of the night, which was enough to scare the Eagles into passing on almost every down. Brian Westbrook ran the ball just four times for 12 yards in the second half.

PASS DEFENSE: B -- Asante Samuel and Quintin Mikell dropped potential game-changing interceptions. But the Eagles did hold Jason Campbell and the Redskins to 4.4 yards per attempt and no touchdowns.

RUSH DEFENSE: B -- The Eagles, who gave up 203 rushing yards to the Redskins in their first meeting, held them to 122 and 3.8 yards per carry Sunday. The Redskins had just two double-digit runs.

SPECIAL TEAMS: C -- Return men DeSean Jackson and Quintin Demps were non-factors. Time and time again, Redskins punter Ryan Plackemeier pinned the Eagles deep in their own territory.

COACHING: F -- Andy Reid reverted to his pass-happy ways Sunday even though the Eagles were missing two of their top four wideouts and were pinned against their own goal line much of the game. The Eagles threw the ball 46 times. Their running backs ran it just 13.
