Re: Another loss

Andy Reid says that Jamaal Jackson will miss the rest of the year after tearing the ACL in his left knee on Sunday against the Broncos. Jeff, I'm quite sure Jackson blames you, since you wrote a glowing story about his resiliency and toughness for Sunday's paper. That's the kiss of death.

The offensive line looked like it had finally come together after so much early-season shuffling due to injuries. How big of a loss is Jackson? And does it throw the whole line into chaos again?

Re: Another loss

I don't think Jackson blames me, although many readers/fans seem to think I'm a jinx. I can't wait until they see my DeSean Jackson feature about his toughness on Sunday. As for the O-line, I know the natural instinct of Eagles fans is to jump off the nearest barstool. But haven't we learned anything from this season of O-line injuries? Place thy trust in Juan Castillo. If only I was allowed to talk to him.

Re: Another loss

I blame Jeff. It was terribly inconsiderate of you to write a nice Sunday story about how valuable he is to the offense and offensive line. The Eagles better hope that none of that stuff you wrote is true. Nick Cole has a huge task - literally and figuratively - going against Dallas' Jay Ratliff. His six sacks are the most among NFL nose tackles.

Re: Another loss

Let's all blame Jeff. That works for me.

The Eagles' offensive line didn't match up well with the Cowboys' D-line to start with. Now this. Between Ratliff and Demarcus Ware, the Eagles are going to have their hands full this week and possibly next. If they lose, Jeff, you should take cover.

Re: Another loss

Oh, I'll also be hatin' on myself (more than usual). If the Eagles lose we're probably back in Dallas the next weekend.
