Playoff Preview - at NYG

Sunday seems like it is 2 weeks away and yet it's right around the corner. Feels weird to watch ESPN or the NFL Network and still see Eagles stories. This time last year I was neck deep in offseason talk.

Les Bowen reported that Klecko didn't practice today and said Eckel is likely to get the start at FB.

I'm actually intrigued to see that. Kyle was great on STs last week. We know he's a good short yardage runner. If he shows any aptitude for blocking, he could be in the mix for FB next year.


The Eagles had to put Mike McGlynn on IR with a hamstring injury. They signed CB Dimitri Patterson. He caught my eye the last couple of preseasons when he was in KC. Dimitri goes about 5'10, 190 and seems to be the kind of CB we're going after these days. He plays the ball well and is a solid hitter/tackler. He was 3rd on the Chiefs in preseason tackles in '07 and 2nd in '08.
