ON THE STATE OF HIS TEAM:

What he said: "I think I know what we are. We've been coming together here in the last month. We're just doing it late."

What he meant: "I think Reggie Brown jumping in that Salvation Army bucket Sunday pretty much summed up our season."

ON WHETHER HE'S CONCERNED THAT DONOVAN McNABB MAY THINK THE TEAM DOESN'T WANT HIM BACK IN '08:

What he said: "Honestly, I'm so tired of talking about it. Every week, I'm asked the same thing. I can't tell you any more than I already have. Just pull out last week's, or the week before - that quote, and we'll take it."

What he meant: "I've told Don a thousand stinkin' times that we want him back. It's Wilma that we're hoping to trade."

ON THE CONDITION OF TIGHT END MATT SCHOBEL, WHO SUFFERED A CONCUSSION AGAINST THE COWBOYS:

What he said: "I'm a little more optimistic about Matt today than I was yesterday."

What he meant: "Matt's improving. He didn't know who he was after the game. Today, he knows who he is. He just isn't sure who I am."

ON SUNDAY'S GAME AGAINST THE SAINTS:

What he said: "We look forward to the opportunity to go down there and play them. We haven't done too well the last couple of times. We hope to put together a better game than we have in the past."

What he meant: "There's nothing quite like playing a meaningless football game 1,500 miles from home 2 days before Christmas. Except maybe root canal."

ON THE EAGLES' WIN OVER THE COWBOYS:

What he said: "To ... beat the Dallas Cowboys, that's a special rivalry that we have. You can toss records aside. It's a competitive game. When you can go down to Dallas and come out on top, it's a great feeling."

What he meant: "I'm not sure what was the best part of the trip – sticking it to T.O. or the fish tacos at Pappasito's Cantina."
