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.

He faced them once last season, allowing two runs in seven innings of a 7-2 win at Citizens Bank Park.

A Phila. state of mind None of the mayoral candidates seems to be thinking out of the box; instead, they're recycling old ideas. Of fresh alternatives I can imagine, my personal favorite would be that Philadelphia secedes and becomes its own state. Think of not having to deal with Harrisburg legislators, most of whom hate us anyway and barely fund us; and of being able to pass our own gun laws with no bowing to the gun lobbies. But the best is that we'd get to retain all city revenue.

After a mediocre showing last season, Wissahickon, with a nice blend of experienced players and promising underclassmen, is now making considerable noise. With Friday afternoon's 7-4 triumph over neighboring Upper Dublin in Fort Washington, the Trojans stayed unbeaten in Suburban One League American Conference action and bumped the Cardinals from their first-place perch. "It was an extremely important game for us," senior shortstop Nick Falso said. "This is always a huge rivalry.

The bright white baseball rocketed off the bat of Gabe Smith and climbed into the light blue sky above Penn Charter's baseball field. On a blustery day, the fourth-inning blast caught a timely gust and easily cleared the fence in right-center field. Luckier still for Smith, a senior centerfielder for the Quakers, he was out of earshot when his head coach quipped to those sitting behind third base. "He's lucky that went out," said David Miller, who was coaching third base. "I gave him the 3-0 take [sign]

When Hannah Nihill gets the basketball, she immediately looks up. Her first thought as she makes her way down the floor is almost always, "Where's Mary?" Cardinal O'Hara's point guard, Nihill, is as quick as they come. And her teammate, Mary Sheehan, can motor down the floor as well. And that's how it went Friday night: No. 20 (Nihill) to No. 13 (Sheehan). Repeat. The sophomore duo was a dangerous one for O'Hara, which beat Radnor, 54-36, in the first-round of the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament at Lansdale Catholic.

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.

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.
