ON THE EAGLES' PLAYOFF CHANCES:

What he said: "I know a lot is being said about the wild-card position. But it's important for our football team and coaches to focus in on a one-game-at-a-time approach."

What he meant: "Playoffs? Playoffs? Are you kidding me?"

ON WHY THE EAGLES CALLED 46 PASS PLAYS AND ONLY 25 RUN PLAYS SUNDAY:

What he said: "We were trying to win the football game the best way we could. If you think we should've run more, then that's what you'll write."

What he meant: "What part of 'I don't like to run the ball' don't you understand?"

ON DONOVAN McNABB AND HIS HEALING ANKLE GOING UP AGAINST THE GIANTS, WHO SACKED HIM 12 TIMES IN THE FIRST MEETING:

What he said: "They got after us last time. In a big way, they got after us. We'll do what we need to do to protect the quarterback, whether he had a sore ankle or didn't have a sore ankle."

What he meant: "Osi Umenyiora just called and was trying to persuade me to give Winston Justice another start at left tackle Sunday. In his dreams."

ON WHEN EXACTLY LITO SHEPPARD INJURED HIS KNEE SUNDAY:

What he said: "He couldn't pick one play out."

What he meant: "He couldn't pick one play out, but he's pretty sure it was sometime before Nate Burleson undressed him on that 43-yard touchdown catch-and-run."

ON WHETHER HE FEELS ANY SYMPATHY FOR A.J. FEELEY, WHO THREW FOUR INTERCEPTIONS:

What he said: "He's in a backup position. He's going to have an opportunity somewhere down the road, I'm sure, to start again. So, it's important he learns from it and moves on."

What he meant: "Sympathy? Have you seen the babes who gravitate toward this guy? What exactly am I supposed to feel sympathy about? That he can't decide between a drop-dead-gorgeous blonde and a brunette?"
