Once, there may have been no job in America that Lee Thomas would rather have had than general manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. But that was nearly a decade ago - in a very different time, before Thomas ever left the Cardinals to become general manager of the Phillies. Yesterday, however, Lee Thomas' onetime dream job opened up again when the Cardinals fired Dal Maxvill after nine years as GM. And one of the first names to pop to the top of the rumor circuit, naturally, was that of James Leroy Thomas.

Recent history: The Eagles lost to the Cardinals, 27-21 on Dec. 24, 2005, in Phoenix. The Eagles lead the series between the franchises, 53-54-5. OFFENSE Eagles: 349.5 yards per game (9th) Cardinals: 390.7 yards per game (2nd) Quarterback Eagles: Andy Reid tried to kick-start the offense in the second half Sunday by benching struggling Donovan McNabb and going with Kevin Kolb. But that didn't work, and now he's going back to McNabb, who has turned the ball over seven times in the last six quarters and has a miserable .526 completion percentage in the last 5 games.

Cardinal Dougherty used a stifling zone defense to hold visiting Archbishop Wood to 22 points in three quarters en route to a 59-38 Catholic League Northern Division victory yesterday. The Cardinals (3-0 league, 9-3 overall) used a 9-point first quarter performance by forward Tony Fleming to take a 17-7 lead. The Cardinals extended their lead to 34-17 at halftime. Fleming led the Cardinals with 13 points, while guard Bob Coppolino added 11. Center Rodger Tabb had 10. Center Ray Schultz paced Wood (0-4, 3-10)

By most standards, the Eagles have one of the most effective defenses in the NFL. The numbers are telling - third in the league in total defense, first in the NFC. In the postseason, the Birds are first against the pass. That sets up interesting matches in Sunday's NFC Championship Game between Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald against Eagles corners Sheldon Brown and Asante Samuel. Both Brown and Samuel are 5-10. Fitzgerald is 6-3. With Anquan Boldin out against Carolina last Saturday and questionable this week because of a hamstring injury, Fitzgerald likely will be the main focus of the Eagles' defense.

St. Louis isn't out of the National League East hunt yet. The Cardinals picked up a game on the division-leading Cubs yesterday and, with a little help from the Phillies, could gain another game by the time tonight is over. Going into today, the second-place Cards trailed the first-place Cubs by four games. If the Phils beat the Cubs at Wrigley Field this afternoon, that lead will be reduced by a half-game. The Cardinals could then come to within three games with a win over the visiting Mets tonight.

Regan Gallagher knows which member of the Upper Dublin girls' basketball team stepped up her game the most after the program lost three starters from last season's extremely successful squad. Without a doubt, it was Kayla McAneney. The senior has been a force for the Cardinals this season, leading the team in points, averaging 18, and becoming a very reliable shooter in clutch situations. So when McAneney went down with a devastating knee injury in the first quarter of Friday night's 53-33 victory over Plymouth Whitemarsh in a Suburban One American game, the Cardinals were understandably shaken up. Instead of allowing the sight of their teammate writhing in pain on the court to get to them, the Cardinals (10-0 overall, 6-0 conference)

Marc Conran's goal is to play football in college, possibly at the Division III level. While he's sorting out his options in that sport, he handles the role of hardworking power forward on the hardwood. "He's got nonstop energy," Upper Dublin coach Josh Adelman said. "He flies around, dives for loose balls, does all the little things. He's that guy for this team. " Friday night, in the opening round of the fourth annual Upper Dublin Invitational Tournament, Conran produced 14 points and six rebounds as the Cardinals eased past cold-shooting North Penn, 59-39.

CHIP KELLY knew just one speed at Oregon and that was NASCAR fast. Didn't matter if he was playing Stanford or Portland State. Didn't matter if he was up by 10 or 40. Didn't matter if his first-stringers or fifth-stringers were in the game. He kept the pedal to the metal and ran his up-tempo offense. There was no need to milk the clock in Eugene because the team on the other sideline usually wasn't talented enough to make up a 10- or 14- or 17-point difference against his Ducks, and also because, unlike the NFL, all NCAA wins aren't created equal.

It took just three plays for the Eagles to force a turnover in their first game in two weeks. It was clear that an idle week had not disrupted the Eagles' November momentum. Their hot streak continued into December on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, where the Eagles' 24-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals marked the team's fourth consecutive victory and kept them in the thick of playoff contention. The Eagles forced three Cardinals turnovers and did not commit a turnover. In a fourth-quarter game that included more late-game struggles, the turnover differential helped the Eagles escape with a 7-5 record.

COMING OFF of their Week 12 bye, the Eagles' defense knew it would be challenged with a different type of quarterback in Arizona's Carson Palmer. Unlike the mobile quarterbacks they faced during the month of November, Palmer was less of a threat to run, which allowed the Eagles to rush the 33-year-old veteran. With numerous blitz packages throughout their 24-21 victory against Arizona yesterday, the Eagles sacked Palmer five times and forced three turnovers en route to the defense's eighth straight effort in which they allowed 21 points or less.

Zach Ertz grasped the pass with both hands and touched his pair of black cleats inbounds. A two-handed shove from an Arizona defender sent the tight end spiraling out of the end zone. It was the rookie's second career touchdown and the 6-yard strike was nearly perfect, giving the Eagles a first-quarter lead in Sunday's 24-21 win. The lone flaw was the photograph of tight end James Casey - not Ertz - that flashed across the stadium's pair of 96-foot-wide jumbotrons. Ertz and Brent Celek combined for 97 receiving yards and three touchdowns as the Eagles targeted the league's worst defense against tight ends.

It makes for a tidy story, the second chances Bill Davis and Todd Bowles have taken advantage of as defensive coordinators. But both have been around the block enough to know they're only a five-game finish away from looking for another job. "I've been around the NFL long enough that you never assume security or the opposite," Davis said earlier this week as the Eagles prepared for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. "It's such a slippery slope....
