Today was opening day for my Philadelphia Eagles, and they didn't disappoint. They played the Panthers in N. Carolina and, although it didn't start out too well for them, five sacks and seven turnovers later, the Eagles beat the tar out of the Panthers, 38-10.
Unfortunately, QB Donovan McNabb has a fractured rib, and Coach Reid isn't saying if he will be up for play next Sunday against New Orleans. If he's out next week, Kolb will take over QB duties, as Michael Vick isn't elegible to play until Week 3.
Defensive coach Sean McDermott lead an agressive defense, keeping pressure on QB Jake Delhomme, who, after suffering five sacks, was pulled in the third quarter. I'd say Mr. McDermott has proven himself worthy of his new position and put his critics to rest today.
Great job, guys!
