Younger Eagles showing some promise

ARLINGTON, Texas --- The Eagles lost, as usual, 38-33, in Dallas Sunday. That's eight in a row. They might not win again. Changes are coming, though, for the record, Andy Reid is still refusing to quit.

So, what's the best that can come out of the final four weeks of the season? A little more of what was on display in Cowboys Stadium Sunday --- enough intriguing efforts from young players to bring maximum appeal to the the coaching opening that Jeffrey Lurie is about to have.

Though the Birds lost, Bryce Brown rushed for 169 yards. And Nick Foles seemed comfortable in the pocket. And Brandon Graham attacked Tony Romo with authority. And Damaris Johnson had a 98-yard punt return for a touchdown.

And .... and there was a glimpse of something better, that's what.

Check out my column in the Daily Times Monday and, as always, on Also, look for a story on Brown, some videos and the usual complete Eagles coverage direct from Texas.
