SOME INTREPID folks were trying to work the gee-despite-the-win-you-were-eliminated-from-playoff-contention angle in the locker room Monday. Of the handful of Eagles available after a brief practice, nobody seemed shocked they weren't going to the postseason. "It felt great to win, especially under the circumstances, with a lot of young guys in, a lot of key players out in key positions," tight end Clay Harbor said. Despite how the question was phrased, Harbor didn't even mention the playoffs.

Here are some observations and ruminations about Sunday's Eagles-Buccaneers game: TAMPA, Fla. - Nick Foles will get most of the credit, and rightly so. But his receivers bailed out the Eagles' rookie quarterback on a number of throws Sunday. Jason Avant was spectacular, catching seven passes for 133 yards. His one-handed grab in the first half was as good as they come. Jeremy Maclin had his best game of the season. The fourth-year wide receiver caught nine passes for 104 yards, but it was his 1-yard, game-winning grab as time expired that will be remembered most.

TAMPA - Maybe it's the start of something big for Nick Foles and maybe it's not. At this point, it's way too soon to tell. The shaggy-haired rookie threw for 381 yards in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Bucs, which is better than not throwing for 381 yards. But there is a long list of NFL washouts who threw for 300 yards at least once before moving on to the insurance business. Considerably more impressive is what he did in the fourth quarter, engineering two scoring drives in the final 7 1/2 minutes to bring the Eagles back from an 11-point deficit and help them avoid the ignominy of their first nine-game losing streak since the 1968 Birds, who lost their first 11. But even that has to be taken with a grain of salt considering that the Bucs came into the game ranked 32nd in the league against the pass.

TAMPA, Fla. - Nick Foles told Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg the play he wanted. The rookie quarterback, making just his fourth NFL start, had driven the Eagles 1 yard away from a victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with two seconds left. The Buccaneers called a timeout, and Foles met with the coaches. They discussed plays designed for that situation. "I want that one," Foles said, sharing his confidence in a rollout that put Jeremy Maclin in single coverage along the sideline.

Here are some observations and ruminations about Sunday's Eagles-Redskins game: It's like a bad rerun. The Eagles gave up another long touchdown after there was an obvious breakdown in the secondary. It was difficult to say for certain who blew his coverage during a second-quarter touchdown. Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was closest to the play, but he looked like he was playing a quarter zone. Safety Nate Allen, meanwhile, appeared to have made a bad read and left Aldrick Robinson all alone in the end zone.

SURROUNDED BY a swath of reporters on the Eagles' practice field at the NovaCare Complex, Andy Reid was asked about Lions receiver Calvin Johnson. He laughed. "When they give you the nickname 'Megatron,' that means you're pretty good," Reid said. "He's a really good player. " That would be an an understatement. Since the start of the 2008 season, Johnson has more touchdown catches (46) than any other receiver in football. He led the NFL in both receiving yards (1,681) and yards-per-game (105.1)

It doesn't work either way, really. A year ago, to hear them tell it, the Eagles were a good team that very easily could have been 4-1. Their actual record might have been 1-4, but that was misleading. If Michael Vick hadn't knocked himself silly bumping into teammate Todd Herremans in Atlanta, the Eagles would have held onto the lead in that game. And if Ronnie Brown hadn't inexplicably tossed the ball away at the goal line against San Francisco, the Eagles surely would have won that game.

Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, a major blow to the team's offense. Maclin has dealt with a hip injury the last two weeks. Maclin's absence leaves the Eagles with only four healthy receivers in Arizona because Riley Cooper is still out with a broken collarbone. DeSean Jackson, Jason Avant, Damaris Johnson, and Mardy Gilyard are the Eagles' options on Sunday; they also have tight ends Brent Celek and Clay Harbor figuring into the game plan.

For the Eagles, it was a win without asterisks. For their quarterback, it was a comeback victory in more than one sense of the word. Michael Vick went into Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens with much more than pads on his shoulders. Coming off a four-interception debacle in Cleveland last week, which was stacked on top of a season of frustration last year, Vick needed to reassert himself as the Eagles' offensive leader. A jury of 69,144 was empanelled to weigh the evidence.

Andy Reid or Ray Lewis may say that the Michael Vick who threw four interceptions against the Browns will not reappear Sunday in the Eagles' home opener, but only the quarterback, really, has any inkling. And Vick may not even know himself. Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens can make even the best quarterbacks look foolish. But since Vick's hellish performance in Cleveland, every analyst, professional or otherwise, from ESPN to the office watercooler, has chimed in on what is ailing the 32-year-old quarterback.
