One thing that has been going through my mind is the adjustments the Eagles are going to make, and the effect that it will have on the other three teams in the NFC East. It certainly is tough to think that losing Owens might be a good thing, but we have to take some things in consideration. 1. Losing Owens will (should) force Andy Reid to increase his committment to the run. I am expecting the offensive line to be better prepared to run block than in the previous weeks of this season. This should also provide better protection for McNabb and his sore ribs. If the running game gets going, then the Eagle offense will be better balanced - and Philly will still be tough to beat. Question is - can Philly get the run going? Especially against Washington's and Dallas' defense. 2. Eagle pride. A team that went to 4 straight championship games just will not fold this easily.
