POSTGAME VOICES

"Things weren't clicking. I thought their defense did a nice job. Their defense came out and played tighter coverage than they had shown before . . . It took a little bit of time to figure it out."

- Andy Reid, on Eagles' early struggles

"We lost games that we should have won. What you're seeing now is a team that has learned from those mistakes . . . We're going into the meat of the schedule. You kinda want to get this thing rolling."

- Donovan McNabb

"We'll take a win, no matter if it's scratch and claw. A win is a win for us."

- Brian Westbrook

"You're going to have your ups and downs. That's the nature of football, the nature of all sports, really . . . We did a good job of weathering the storm."

- Brian Dawkins
