Vote For Parker & In the Know

- The Eagles win against the 49ers might not have been the prettiest, but they were the only NFC East team to win this weekend. There is still hope for the 2008 season.

- Vote now to make Juqua Parker the Defensive Player of the Week.

- While David Akers has been struggling, did anyone realize that the opposing kickers facing the Eagles this year are a perfect 13 for 13 in field goals!

- Though we are repeatedly told that the Eagles are playing games without their top two WRs, a quick look at the stats show us that DeSean Jackson is in the top 15 for catches and yards among NFL WRs. When Curtis returns to team up with Jackson the Eagles will have their top 2 WRs...forget Reggie Brown.

- Could just be me, but with Andrews continuing to suffer with a back injury, a 6 hour plane ride to CA (to see yet another doctor) was probably not the best idea.

- In the span of about 2 hours yesterday we saw the Cowboys lose their Pro Bowl QB, Pro Bowl Punter, and top rookie RB. Today will we find out that Pacman has been suspended?

- The Atlanta Falcons may be 4-2, but 2 of those wins came against the lowly Lions and Chiefs. The Falcons carry the 24th rated pass defense, the 20th rated run defense, and are allowing the opposition an average of 350 yards per game. Rest up McNabb and B-West!

- In Buckhalter's 2 starts this year, he has collected 159 rushing yards and 109 receiving yards...stats that would make even Westbrook jealous!

- In 2007 the Eagles D had a total of 19 turnovers. Through the first 6 weeks of the 2008 season the D has already caused 12 turnovers.

- The NFL trading deadline is today...do the Eagles make any moves? Probably unlikely. Hopefully the other NFC East teams also remain quiet.
