Thursday against the Panthers will be a great barometer.

The Eagle's opponents to date have not exactly been world beaters. The Chargers and Giants suck. I am leaning towards putting Arizona in that group too. They beat Washington which was a quality win and hung with KC but it was still a loss. I put Carolina somewhere between Washington and KC at this point. If the Eagles win, it will be their 2nd quality win of the season. If they lose, then I think we will have to consider the fact that the Eagles are good enough to make the playoffs in this year's NFC East but are probably not good enough to go very deep in the playoffs.

At the beginning of the season I did not give the Eagles a chance to make the playoffs. They are in the drivers seat right now. If they can get this win on Thursday night I will be on the playoff bandwagon.

I wouldn't take too much away from this game. Thursday night road games are a total crapshoot. Win or lose, I'm taking this week with a grain of salt. I don't think it will tell us a whole lot about our big picture chances, but a win would definitely position us well for a nice seed in the NFC.

Giving any consideration to the lack of F Cox, L Johnson, R Darby who are expected back soon? Even S. Jones may be added to the DB depth in the latter portion of the season.

We are hitting week 6 and most teams have injuries to deal with. The Eagles are being hit hard right now with Cox and Johnson. I have not seen enough of Darby yet to consider him a huge loss at this point. I know what he did his rookie year and I know what he did last year. That leaves me with not knowing how to grade his loss at this point. Same thing with Jones. He is a rookie and did not even have the benefit of training camp. Anything the Eagles get from him this year is a bonus but I am not counting on anything.
