Backup Eagles barely lose to Cowboys

Even though they won, this has still got to be pretty embarrassing for the Cowboys. The Eagles, playing the entire game with backups at every position, barely lost to the Cowboys, 14-13, in an incredibly boring and meaningless game.

Since the Eagles didn't bother to play the game, as they rightfully shouldn't have, I'm not going to bother to do a recap. Kevin Kolb looked below average in the game, completing just 18 of 36 passes for 162 yards, a touchdown and 3 interceptions, and didn't do much to give Eagles fans confidence if Michael Vick were to get hurt next week. The only Eagle that got significant playing time this week that I want to see more of is Jerome Harrison, who picked 105 total yards in the game. Harrison is a tremendous change of pace back and I would love to see him get a few extra touches in the playoffs.

The Eagles finish the season with a 10-6 record, a pretty solid record considering many thought this was a rebuilding year for the Birds. Now let's see if the Michael Vick magic can carry them to that elusive Super Bowl title.
