What he meant: "Hey, my initial plan was to put Max Jean-Gilles back there on punts. But Tom [Heckert] talked me out of it.
ON WHY HE DIDN'T USE BRIAN WESTBROOK TO RETURN PUNTS:
What he said: "I'm not even going to get into all that. I'm not even going to go there."
What he meant: "Tammy keeps asking me the same fricking thing."
ON REPORTS THE EAGLES WILL BRING BACK RENO MAHE:
What he said: "Not necessarily."
What he meant: "Reno's in New York making a fortune as a hand model. I don't think we could lure him out of retirement."
ON DONOVAN McNABB'S 15-FOR-33 PERFORMANCE:
What he said: "First thing, this was his first game back. I probably could've dialed up different plays for him. [It was] a bunch of things. He could've had a little bit better protection. There's a bunch of things that go into that."
What he meant: "Three guys on our line made the Eagles' 75th Anniversary Team [Shawn Andrews, William Thomas and Jon Runyan]. Sunday, they played like they were 75. It's not just the quarterback."
ON WHETHER McNABB LOOKED FATIGUED IN THE SECOND HALF:
What he said: "No, I didn't think so. I thought he held up pretty good. I saw him have to make some throws where he had to move around a little bit to make the throw, and he hasn't had to do that [in a while]."
What he meant: "You guys won't let him forget about that Super Bowl puking episode, will you? Just because he has a knee brace doesn't mean he's a couch potato."
