I SEE BOTH offenses having trouble - the Eagles' reworked offensive line, on the road, in a dome, against an excellent defense that won the same matchup last season, and Arizona's Kevin Kolb, behind what might be an even more unimpressive offensive line, pressured by waves of attacking Eagles. The Cards' knack for blocking kicks and punts certainly could make the difference, especially if you're not that sold on the clutchness of Alex Henery or Chas Henry. But maybe the way to look at this is, which team can you really most easily envision being 3-0 Monday?

MANY observers thought Mat McBriar won the Eagles' punting battle in training camp, and were surprised when the Birds went with incumbent Chas Henry. Special-teams coordinator Bobby April later indicated the decision came down to who was a better holder for Alex Henery. But holding on kicks, it turns out, is not the most important factor in punting, and on Tuesday, the Eagles announced they had released Henry and brought back McBriar. The team also signed long snapper Kyle Nelson to the practice squad, so he can get some work with McBriar and Henery this week.

IT KIND of got lost in the shuffle Sunday, there was so much else to dissect, but Alex Henery missed a 45-yard field goal in the fourth quarter. This was the fourth game in a row with a field-goal miss, the first one that counted, the previous three coming in the preseason. Still, a disturbing trend for a kicker who was 24-for-27 as a rookie, who had hit 17 regular-season field goals in a row going into Sunday. There didn't seem to be anything wrong with the snap (has there ever been anything wrong with a Jon Dorenbos snap?

YOU HEAR a lot about greedy professional athletes these days. But the truth is that many are generous with their time and money. Such is the case of former Phillies pitcher Gavin Floyd, now with the White Sox. Floyd and his wife Leanna, who reside in Trinity, Fla., in the offseason, heard about Tim Smith, a 24-year-old college student who needed new prosthetic legs but had no insurance and no way to afford the $31,000 cost. According to the Tampa Tribune, friends at Trinity College and members of his church raised $10,000.

BETHLEHEM — The Eagles released their first depth chart of training camp Monday, and there were no huge surprises. The biggest ripple might have been that Mat McBriar is listed as the starting punter over incumbent Chas Henry, even though McBriar acknowledged again Monday that he is still working his way back from a nerve problem that affects his plant leg. "I don't know if it's anything too official," said McBriar, 33, a two-time Pro Bowl punter...

This is a post by Les Bowen on Eagletarian.com, the Daily News' Eagles blog.   DONNIE JONES thought he had earned another year with the Houston Texans, but when that didn't seem to be working out, Jones was happy to sign on with the Eagles, who announced him Monday as their new punter. The Eagles released Mat McBriar, the former Cowboys Pro Bowler who beat out Chas Henry last season, but never seemed to come all the way back to the form he showed before a nerve problem caused by a cyst derailed his career.

Nnamdi Asomugha's black-rimmed glasses were square, and the gold-and-maroon scarf didn't quite make it all the way around his neck, but that didn't matter to the young patients at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The cornerback, as Harry Potter, joined linebacker Akeem Jordan and punter Chas Henry on Tuesday for the Eagles' Trick or Treat community event at CHOP. Jordan was costumed as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and Henry was a caveman. The players autographed hats, posed for photographs, and chatted with many of the children who made their way to a common room at the Children's Seashore House.

Eagles left tackle Jason Peters left Friday's practice with what coach Andy Reid said was tenderness in an Achilles tendon and ankle and officially was listed as questionable for Sunday night's game at Atlanta. In a brief interview, Peters later said he expects to play. He did not have any noticeable problem walking. "Nothing looks to be too serious, so they're going to check it out and see how he's doing," Reid said after practice. "He seems to be doing well now. " If Peters can't play, the Eagles likely will go with King Dunlap at left tackle.

BY RELEASING punter Chas Henry on Tuesday because of a lack of consistency, Eagles coach Andy Reid might inadvertently be throwing off one of his most consistent performers: kicker Alex Henery. With long snapper Jon Dorenbos possibly sidelined by a high ankle sprain for Sunday night's home game with the Giants, Henery could have two new moving parts in the booting process. New punter Mat McBriar will handle the holding duties. Kyle Nelson, who has never taken a snap in an NFL regular-season game, would replace Dorenbos on the roster.

Despite averaging 48.3 yards a punt, Chas Henry was released Tuesday, and the Eagles brought back former Pro Bowl punter Mat McBriar to take his place. As robust as many of Henry's kicks had been this season, the second-year punter was inconsistent. And even when he did get hold of one, Henry often would out-kick his coverage with low-trajectory punts. On Sunday against Arizona, he averaged 49.2 yards on five punts. But his net was 38.8, and Arizona averaged 10.4 yards a return.

FOR LARGE stretches of Sunday's game, it was clear that the Browns' offense was simply not going to be able to move the football. The Eagles' defense was too good against Trent Richardson on the ground, and Brandon Weeden was too bad through the air. If the Eagles were going to lose the opener, their offense or special teams would have had to be the reason. Thanks to four Michael Vick interceptions, the offense almost did. But hidden in the hoopla of Vick's ineptitude was the performance of punter Chas Henry, who picked a good game to have his best day as a pro. Tasked with eliminating any hope for a futile Browns offense, Henry boomed six punts into Cleveland territory to the tune of a 55-yard average.

The Eagles made their decision on the team's punter apparent by using only Chas Henry in Thursday's 28-10 win over the New York Jets in the preseason finale, an indication that Henry will be with the squad for the second straight season. Veteran Mat McBriar, who had competed with Henry for the job throughout training camp and the preseason, was not seen on the sideline. Eagles coach Andy Reid said that McBriar had not yet been cut and that the team wanted to see Henry. Henry punted four times for an average of 33.0 yards.

THE ONLY thing worse than having a career-threatening injury is having a career-threatening injury and not knowing what it is or how to fix it. That was the scary situation Eagles punter Mat McBriar found himself in last October. Through the first six games of the 2011 season, McBriar, a two-time Pro Bowler who was in his eighth year with the Cowboys, was one of the league's leading punters, averaging 49.8 yards per attempt. Then, as he prepared for a Week 8 game against the Eagles, he began experiencing intense pain in his left, non-kicking, leg. He punted three times in the first half against the Eagles, and each time he planted his left foot for the kick, he felt a shooting pain.
