What we're talking about after Eagles' win over the 49ers:
-- The opening: Quintin Demps' 48-yard kickoff return and DeSean Jackson's 19-yard touchdown reception produced the Eagles' first TD. How did Jackson get that open again? Because touted linebacker Pat Willis bit and chose to pursue scrambling QB Donovan McNabb instead of staying in coverage. Not a good choice.
-- Three more years: Andy Reid's clockwork offense, run by the coach with the new contract extension, burned two timeouts due to playcalling and went for it (and failed) on fourth-and-1 at his own 29 within the first 20 minutes - all with the lead.
-- Interceptions: The Eagles picked off Alex Smith three times in the first half. He telegraphed throws on routes the Eagles seemed to know, and they converted those interceptions into six points.
-- Lost timeouts: The Eagles unnecessarily burned all three timeouts in the first half, costing them perhaps two shots, if not three, at the end zone at the end of the half.
-- One that got away: Asante Samuel had an interception, sure, but as many eyebrows rose when he whiffed on Josh Morgan's 22-yard catch-and-run on fourth-and-3. Three plays later, Samuel nearly knocked Morgan out on a third-down hit, which limited the Niners to a field goal.
-- Burner: DeSean Jackson finished with six catches for 140 yards and a touchdown and now has 1,087 receiving yards this season. He burned Dre Bly and Michael Lewis all night, most notably for a 59-yarder that set up the clinching TD. He might have had another 60-yard reception, maybe for a touchdown, but he was overthrown. Unstoppable.
-- Vick hurt: Michael Vick got a quad contusion running like a tailback at the end of the first quarter and didn't return. Perhaps the Eagles will now cease using him like a tailback.
