Well all of the talk was about Donovan McNabb coming back to Philadelphia to take on it the Philadelphia Eagles. Really wasn't McNabb the story in the end it was the running game of the Washington Redskins and their defense figuring it out there too and on the division. And I think that you've got to give the Redskins a little bit of time of course Mike Shanahan coming -- he's put in his offensive system along with a son Kyle Shanahan and you know it's gonna take a little bit of time for that to come together along with Donovan McNabb run and a new offense and we so we've seen some of that we've seen some of the growing pains. And then of course going to the 34 scheme and Jim have looked Baylor Jim has let's. Defense a scheme being put -- so. No this is a big -- it early in the season in light of all that in as the Redskins have been quick to remind all of us is they are now to know within the division two and two overall. And off to a pretty good start they're only gonna get better whether or not that's good enough at the end of the day I don't know but we do know that right now this NFC east appears to be anyway pretty pretty mediocre yet and you know the Washington -- you believe they'll get better the question is will Philadelphia. Be able to get better. With Kevin -- the quarterback they lose a huge weapon here today. In Michael Vick we don't know the extent of the injury this point but a rib injury and disappeared -- the goal -- well -- those Michael victim and then lose the ability to create big plays something that they have been very good with the last couple of weeks and they were going up against a defense that had been given up a lot of big plays through the first part of the season and so. That's a concern it's a concern what we've seen so far this year from Kevin Cobb and more than likely he's gonna get his opportunity again next week in. And slowly you know you start -- not enough performances and then opinions become made as to what type of player you aren't. And Kevin is c'mon play well next week is no question because I don't know how many more opportunities gonna get if he doesn't start playing a little better and enhance Washington Redskins win that the battle with the Philadelphia Eagles and McNabb returned. By five points that's it from Philadelphia.
