I WOULD START this with "no disrespect to the Arizona Cardinals," but there is no way to respectfully write this. The Eagles will not lose to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game. Enough with all of the breakdowns based on logic, statistics and current status of the teams; there is a larger metaphysical aspect in play. I know the Arizona Cardinals are a better team than the one the Eagles carved up on Thanksgiving night to begin their wild ride to the NFC Championship Game.

WE'VE NEVER PARTICULARLY cared for Bill Cowher as an NFL analyst, and now we have even more reason to dislike him. When asked if he thought the Eagles or Cardinals would win the NFC Championship and advance to the Super Bowl, Cowher replied: "I don't think there is any question [the Eagles] can go in there and win. Will they? I don't think they will. I know you talk about the highlight that was Thanksgiving Day, but that was a short week, having to come to the East Coast . . . But this is a different Arizona Cardinals team . . . This is a football team that is running the football.

The Eagles returned from the bye week in good health. Only safety Earl Wolff (knee) was sidelined at Tuesday's practice, when 52 of 53 players were full participants. Linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee) and cornerback Bradley Fletcher (pectoral) returned after missing the Nov. 17 win over Washington. Quarterback Michael Vick (hamstring) was at full speed and safety Colt Anderson (ankle) was back on the field after sitting out the team's lone practice last week. "You've got to have all hands on deck, and I think it's a good situation," coach Chip Kelly said.

St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch after Sunday's game against the Cardinals that he would start Monday against the visiting Eagles. "I'll go . . . Yeah, I'll go," said Bulger, who has missed two games and most of another with a bruised throwing shoulder. Coach Mike Martz made it clear after Sunday's 31-7 loss to the Arizona Cardinals that the lion's share of blame should be directed at the quarterback position - and mainly at Bulger's understudy, Chris Chandler.

   Which quarterback would you rather have on your team this weekend?    Former Eagle Kevin Kolb got off to a good start with his new team, the Arizona Cardinals, and Eagles starter Michael Vick earned a victory. Only former Eagle Donovan McNabb struggled with his new team, the Minnesota Vikings.    Here is a look at how Kolb, Vick and McNabb compare after the first week of the season: Rk Player    Comp-Att Pct Yds Avg TD Int Lng 20+ Sck Rate 3 Kevin Kolb         18-27 66.7 309 11.4 2 0 70T 6 2 130.0 17 Michael Vick      14-32 43.8 187 5.8 2 0 41 4 3 83.7 28 Donovan McNabb     7-15 46.7 39 2.6 1 1 12 0 2 47.9

It might be the "rumor du jour," but Chicago officials reportedly aren't counting it out. The city, struggling over facilities with the Chicago Bears, says it will do everything it can to keep a pro football team in town - even if that team is the Arizona Cardinals. "We're still trying to convince the Bears to stay, but we'll keep our options open," an unidentified mayoral aide told the Chicago Tribune. The newspaper reported yesterday that city officials have talked secretly with the Arizona Cardinals about moving back here if the Bears moved out of Soldier Field.

The Minnesota Vikings plucked a pair of Penn State linebackers in the fourth and seventh rounds of the NFL draft on Saturday. Gerald Hodges was taken by the Vikings in the fourth round with the 120th overall pick, and Michael Mauti was chosen in the seventh round with the 213th pick. Earl Watford, a graduate of Simon Gratz and a guard at James Madison University, was selected in the fourth round with the No. 116 overall pick by the Arizona Cardinals. Florida State outside linebacker Nick Moody, who starred as a defensive back at Roman Catholic, was tabbed in the sixth round, No. 180 overall, by the San Francisco 49ers.

Picture four offensive linemen squeezed into an old Volkswagen Beetle and you have an idea how tight things are in the NFC East. For the Eagles, it's nothing that a few wins wouldn't cure, but that's something that was true three weeks ago, and they haven't won since. With four games remaining, the Eagles (7-5) are tied for second with the Dallas Cowboys, one game behind the Washington Redskins. The Arizona Cardinals - surprise, surprise - have moved to within one game of second place at 6-6. What's dangerous for the Eagles is that they're losing ground in the tiebreakers.

IT'S FUN TO KICK BUDDY RYAN AROUND Things weren't moving fast enough for ol' Billy Bidwill, the Cardinals' perfectly inept owner, so he . . . hired Buddy Ryan. The team changed its name to the Arizona Cardinals, season-ticket sales jumped off the chart and Buddy pronounced there was "a winner in town. " Oh really. Where? The Cardinals are 0-3, and the offense . . . didn't score a point against Cleveland. The starting quarterback, Steve Beuerlein, went from No. 1 a week ago to inactive, and has been replaced by two has-beens, Jim McMahon and Jay Schroeder.

The Eagles returned to practice Tuesday without their two top cornerbacks on the field. Both Byron Maxwell and Eric Rowe exited in the second quarter of the 40-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, and their status remains in question for Saturday against the Washington Redskins. Maxwell has a sprain of the SC joint, which connects the collarbone to the sternum. He watched practice from the sideline in street clothes and appeared in discomfort in the locker room afterward. Maxwell is unsure whether he'll be able to play.

Three weeks into DeMarco Murray's demotion, it's no longer surprising when he is not the Eagles' leading ballcarrier. But his role has never been as minimal as it was in the 40-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, when Murray played only eight of 64 offensive snaps and touched the ball twice. This is not what Murray expected when he signed a five-year, $40 million contract in March. It's not what the Eagles expected, either. It's the situation they are in, though, because coach Chip Kelly has made clear that he won't try to placate the high-priced running back.

If this was a measuring-stick game for the Eagles, they came up as short as the list of plays Chip Kelly designed for running back DeMarco Murray on Sunday night. The bad news, in fact, far outweighed the good for the Eagles by the end of this chilly evening at Lincoln Financial Field that will be remembered more for its cold reality. Most alarming, if not at all surprising, is that the Eagles found out they do not match up at all with the Arizona Cardinals, an elite NFL team that clinched the NFC West title with a 40-17 rout of the home team.

The Eagles played without their two starting cornerbacks for much of their 40-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday. Byron Maxwell left in the second quarter with a shoulder injury that required X-rays. He tried playing through the injury but could not remain in the game. Maxwell returned to the sideline in the second half, but he never reentered the game. Eric Rowe left in the second quarter with a concussion. The injury placed the rookie in the league-mandated concussion protocol and left the Eagles thin at a position that already lacked depth.

Bill Davis could neither explain nor excuse the performance he'd just witnessed from his defense, and as he stood in the Eagles' locker room late Sunday night, he couldn't erase it with his patented square-my-jaw, look-you-in-the-eye responses to the questions coming his way. The Arizona Cardinals hadn't just gotten the better of the Eagles and Davis's defense, 40-17. They had emasculated them. They had run past them, run over them, stiff-armed them to the ground, and with every reference, seven in all, to the Eagles' terrible tackling Sunday night, Davis was subtly indicting the toughness of a defense that was fortunate not to have been embarrassed worse than it was. "The tackling was awful," he said.

How the Eagles played on Sunday night against the Arizona Cardinals was really more important in the long run than whether they finished the game as winners or losers. A win over the Cardinals could have greased their path to the playoffs in some ways, but the outcome couldn't get them in or keep them out. What the game could do, however, was give the Eagles further confidence that they even belong in a playoff game this season. If they could hang with Arizona, which came in with an 11-2 record and both its offense and defense ranked among the top five in the NFL, then maybe the Eagles would be worthy of the postseason.

Their playoff hopes live another week, because they play in a terrible division, but the Eagles' illusions of late-season competence surely died Sunday night on the yellowing Lincoln Financial Field grass, against a seriously more talented and efficient Arizona Cardinals team, 40-17. "You don't win many games when you tackle like that," Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis observed, after an Eagles opponent hit the 40 mark for the third time in the last five games, ending the Birds' modest two-game win streak.

WHAT AN EAGLES season this has been! We started with such high hopes, but, to use a horse racing analogy, they almost fell to their knees coming out of the gate. They somehow recovered to reach the halfway point at 4-4. Then, rather than cruising through the weakest three-game stretch on their schedule - against the subpar Dolphins, Buccaneers and Lions - and emerging at 7-4 and well on their way to a division title, disaster struck thrice and the Eagles' bandwagon emptied faster than Odell Beckham Jr. streaking for a touchdown.

Sunday night's game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Arizona Cardinals features a franchise that currently holds the National Football League's record for longest championship drought. And it's not the Eagles. The Cardinals have won only one NFL title since 1925. That championship came in 1947 against the Eagles, who won their last NFL title in 1960. In Pennsylvania's anthracite coal region, the Cardinals' 68 years of futility is attributed to a curse placed on them for stealing the 1925 championship from the Pottsville Maroons.

Like most pass-rushers, Brandon Graham likes a quarterback who's easy to find. Tom Brady. Eli Manning. Carson Palmer. He'd rather line up across from those quarterbacks, as accomplished and skilled as they are, than he would against one who can scurry and scramble and will abandon the pocket for the sake of saving himself and extending the play. Graham is one of the Eagles' two starting outside linebackers. He's tied for the team lead in sacks with 61/2. He prefers an immobile target.
