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.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - There's no crime in being pretty good. Consider Canada; even Americans agree their neighbors are all right. Malaysia isn't Singapore, but it's hard to have a bad time in Kuala Lumpur. Sweden and Norway get all the press, but you might actually come out smarter if you're raised in Finland. There is no häpeä in hailing from Helsinki, no shame having kinfolk in Calgary. So, too, there is nothing wrong with being an Eagle; nothing wrong with being pretty good.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - In the most literal sense, the Eagles lost yesterday, 24-20, because Rashad Johnson shoved Jordan Matthews out of bounds in the end zone before Matthews could get his feet down, after Matthews caught Nick Foles' last-second heave to the left corner from the Cardinals' 16 yard-line. But that was a tough, low-percentage play, one the Eagles never should have needed to make in a game in which they outgained the Cardinals, 521-400, piled up a 27-17 edge in first downs, got a 54-yard field goal from rookie kicker Cody Parkey, and didn't allow a Cardinals first down in four successive second-half series, while starting five series in a row at their own 40 or better.

In both Eagles losses, in San Francisco on Sept. 28 and in Arizona on Sunday, the Birds drove to within two yards of a potential game-deciding touchdown. But both times, they did not make it. Here is a comparison of those drives: VS. 49ERS 15 plays, 90 yards, 6 first downs Trailing by 26-21, the Eagles had first and goal at the San Francisco 6 with 2:50 left in the fourth quarter. First and 6: Nick Foles throws incomplete Second and 6: LeSean McCoy runs for 5 yards to the 1. Third and 1: Foles throws incomplete.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The game's biggest play came down to one key sign between the quarterback and the wide receiver. Carson Palmer's signal to wide receiver John Brown late in the fourth quarter was intended to break the Cardinals' rookie wide receiver from the Eagles coverage. Facing a 17-14 deficit, and third and 5 from his own 25-yard line with less than two minutes remaining, Palmer saw the two Eagles safeties positioned as "sticks," or side-by-side. Palmer signaled for Brown to move aggressively toward one of the safeties.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Eagles could have been stunned, if only they had not known what was coming. All week, they acknowledged that the Arizona Cardinals like to challenge defenses with the vertical passing game. They knew they had to keep the Cardinals wide receivers in front of them. At the most pivotal point in Sunday's game, Cardinals wide receiver John Brown raced past Eagles safety Nate Allen and cornerback Cary Williams. Carson Palmer hurled the ball as deep as he could, and Brown stretched his arms to haul in the pass on the run. The result was a 75-yard, go-ahead touchdown with 81 seconds remaining to give the Cardinals a 24-20 victory over the Eagles.

When the Eagles run The running game appeared rejuvenated in the Eagles' last two games, with 145 yards against the Rams and 203 yards against the Giants. LeSean McCoy's 149-yard outburst against New York was a positive sign after the defending rushing champion struggled early in the season. But the Eagles face what might be their toughest test yet against the NFL's No. 1 rushing defense, and they might have to do it without dynamic No. 2 running back Darren Sproles. Sproles is questionable.

There is no charming or creative name attached to the offense that Bruce Arians brought with him when he became the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals last season. It is an offense, however, that usually has some complimentary adjectives preceding it: Good , effective , innovative , and inclusive immediately come to mind. It's the last of those adjectives that has forced the face of the Cardinals to adjust to a new way of doing things. Upon entering the NFL as the third overall draft pick in 2004, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald almost immediately became the man in the Arizona offense.

Cary Williams watched the film from the Arizona Cardinals' visit to Lincoln Financial Field last December. He expects to see something similar when the Eagles play in Arizona on Sunday. The Cardinals have the same scheme, same quarterback, and same imposing wide receivers for Williams and Bradley Fletcher to cover. The Eagles escaped with a 24-21 win last season. They prepare for a 5-1 team that has improved its offensive line and running game. "They've got a lot of weapons, and they do a lot of different things on the offensive side of the ball to spread the ball around to all those guys," coach Chip Kelly said.

If there's a lesson for the Cardinals to learn from the New York Giants' defensive game plan in last week's 27-0 loss to the Eagles, it is that LeSean McCoy and the Eagles' ground attack are still potent against even or minus-one numbers in the box. Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell chose, for the most part, to keep his safeties in coverage, and the Eagles made him pay. McCoy rushed for 149 yards, and a collective sigh of relief seemed to...

Mychal Kendricks has missed the last four games, but the Eagles' starting inside linebacker could be back this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. The Eagles return to practice on Tuesday after a full week off. "I'll be in practice this week pushing forward to do what I set out to complete while not seeing this as a setback but as a way forward," Kendricks wrote on his personal website on Monday. Kendricks said after a Week 2 victory to the Indianapolis Colts that his calf had "spasms," but the injury was clearly more serious than spasms.
