Kinda rough on the secondary and the D line. I thought both were worthy of at least a B+. WR should have gotten a D+ Jackson was good and Avant was solid. A career year for Hank Basket is meaningless. I wouldn't call his contributions to date worthy of being even called a career. The guy is a human disappearing act when you need a big play. Just like LJ Smith, who needs to go back to Rutgers and find some heart. Disappointing that the Bird's aren't in the Super Bowl given the turn of events, but they took a season doomed for failure by pundits and made a good run of it.

I agree with all that was said. The offense was pretty good, until they got into the red zone where we got happy with field goals. We need a TE, a big receiver, an actual FB, depth on the OL and a power RB to help with the offense. Defense needs another DE, depth at LB, and a young safety. That's what I think anyways.

A real tight end would be nice and it would help the Eagles to give McNabb a big target when his throws are off. FB is correct as well. I also think the LB's could be better but they are playing better than Dhani Jones and Mark Simmoeau.
