With McNabb injured, Eagles could throw Feeley against unbeaten Patriots
Donovan McNabb did not practice this week to rest his sore ankle and thumb, and Eagles coach Andy Reid listed him as doubtful
for the game against the Patriots. If McNabb can't go, Feeley will have to try to stop New England as it litters the roadside with opponents on its quest for a perfect 19-0 record.

Looking good: Laurence Maroney stretches next to
tight end Jason Rader during practice yesterday in Foxboro.
The first-round draft pick in 2006 has been considered a disappointment in some circles due to his durability issues,
as well as too much tap-dancing and indecisiveness during his runs.”
A coordinated effort
McDaniels says Maroney producing when called on.

Pats, Dolphins on opposite ends of history
“The 2007 New England Patriots are better than the perfect 1972 Miami Dolphins, but that doesn't mean the Patriots will go undefeated.
And the 2007 Miami Dolphins are better than the winless 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that doesn't mean the Dolphins will win a game.”
TO and Moss: Are new versions better than old?
Thoughts for discussion in chat room tomorrow night:
- What does the near-future hold for Lamont Jordan (RB, Oakland RAIDERS)? He has asked to be released. If he is, could he be an asset for the PATRIOTS?
- A win against the EAGLES tomorrow night gives us our 5th consecutive AFC East title.
- The EAGLES may very well have had a slightly more difficult schedule thus far this season. Their oppositions' combined W/L record is 51-49, the PATRIOTS oppositions' combined W/L record is 45-54. The EAGLES W/L record (5-5-0) is currently ranked 7th, tied with 13 others. The PATS' W/L record is, of course, #1.
- There are two teams, Dallas and Green Bay with records of 9-1-0. They play in Dallas this Thursday, November 29th. Then comes the Colts at 8-2-0.
Then the STEELERS, JAGUARS, and GIANTS with records of 7-3-0. Five teams have records of 6-4-0. The EAGLES and 5 others at 5-5-0.
Seven teams at 4-6-0.
Two teams at 3-7-0.
Four teams at 2-8-0.
And my second favorite record, the Fish at 0-10-0.
No wonder "Shula the Drooler" is losing it. (BTW, shouldn't he "beep" when he backs up like that?)
