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.

1. Defenseless: Once considered a strength, the Eagles' defense surrendered at least 394 yards for the seventh time in eight games. Of course, this time it was expected, considering the Cardinals entered with the No. 1 offense in the NFL. 2. Sam's world: Sam Bradford took heat all night from the blitzing Cardinals defense and was punished again and again. He had to exit the game for a play in the first quarter after a particularly tough hit, but he returned. Bradford finished 28-for-41 for 361 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, the first returned for a touchdown.

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.

When Jason Lincoln took the mound for Interboro, the nonleague baseball game was practically over. The Buccaneers starter put up a dominating performance, tossing a complete game and allowing one run, as the hosts defeated Cardinal O'Hara, 3-1, on Saturday. C.J. Cardell provided most of the offense that Lincoln would need as he ripped a two-run double in the bottom of the second inning. Lincoln gave up two hits, walked one, and struck out five en route to victory. In other nonleague action: Pat Lofton struck out six to earn his first varsity win as Radnor downed Upper Merion, 2-1, at Frawley Stadium in Wilmington.

When Upper Dublin senior Michael Mullen shoots a lacrosse ball, the 6-foot attacker doesn't get cheated. In the first quarter of Monday's 21-1 destruction of visiting Upper Merion, Mullen ripped a shot about 10 yards left of the goal that whizzed past the goaltender, squirted through a black, chain-linked fence and bounced down bustling Susquehanna Avenue. "That happens all the time, especially with him," said Upper Dublin senior Allison Silk, a team manager. "Last week, he hit a car. " Monday's missile spared passing vehicles and finally came to rest about 100 yards away from the field, nestled near a sewer grate.

HERSHEY - Mackenzie Gardler called her "unguardable. " Mary Sheehan said she'd seen her play a "100 times and she's never shot that well. " The "who" was Cumberland Valley's Kelly Jekot. The "what" was the performance she put on Friday night against Cardinal O'Hara in the PIAA Class 4A state title game. The "how" was nothing short of spectacular, as the Eagles won a third straight state championship, 57-34. "I don't know their stats, but it was probably pretty close to perfection," Sheehan, a junior, said.

Making a long-term commitment to Kolten Wong as their second baseman, the St. Louis Cardinals agreed Wednesday to a $25.5 million, five-year contract with the 25-year-old. Wong gets $1.25 million this year, $2.5 million in 2017, $4 million in 2018, $6.5 million in 2019 and $10.25 million in 2020. St. Louis has a $12.5 million option for 2021 with a $1 million buyout. He would have been eligible for salary arbitration next winter and for free agency after the 2019 World Series. "Now that I kind of have some kind of security, I understand that I can go out there and do different things and not worry about basically trying to play a good game every single game of spring training," Wong said.

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.

THE EAGLES entered Sunday night's game against Air Arizona with a first-hand knowledge of the Cardinals' ability to strike deep. Last October, they watched a late-game three-point lead over the Cardinals vanish into thin air when wide receiver John Brown managed to get behind the Eagles' secondary with a minute-and-a-half left and haul in a 75-yard game-winning touchdown pass from Carson Palmer. That happened with disturbing regularity last year. The Eagles gave up a league-high 72 X-plays (completions of 20 yards or more)

Here is Domo's report card for the Eagles-Cardinals game. Click here to send in your own grades. RUSHING OFFENSE DeMarco Murray spent most of the game on the bench. Ryan Mathews was effective, but had a killer fumble at midfield in the second half when the Eagles still were in the game and driving. GRADE: C PASSING OFFENSE Sam Bradford turned in a gutsy performance. He threw for 300-plus yards and two TDs and had his best third-down performance of the season.

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.

EMOTION CAN carry you only so far. The previous two weeks sexagenarian owner Jeffrey Lurie spurred the Eagles to play with passion. They ran and blocked with abandon; executed with precision. Lurie delivered impassioned speeches before and after the upset at New England. The next week he distributed black T-shirts with "53 Angry Men" emblazoned on them before the Birds beat the Bills. There were not 53 Angry Men at the Linc on Sunday night. There were 53 Hopeful Gents.
