Andy Reid said Friday it was "hindsight" to suggest he could have fixed his defense earlier, and maybe saved the Eagles' season, by firing defensive-line coach Jim Washburn and scuttling the wide-nine before he eventually did so, on Dec. 3. Reid didn't say it was "wrong. " He just said it was "hindsight. " Then Reid talked about how, with the defensive line in a normal formation, and the linemen not blindly making a beeline for the quarterback, life is much easier for the safeties and even the corners.

THE EAGLES are only a laugh track short of a situation comedy right now. At one point on Thursday night, they lost fumbles on three consecutive plays and four plays out of five - and I, for one, can never forgive myself for having typed the words "Bryce Brown" and "Steve Van Buren" in the same sentence a couple of weeks ago. Besides the fumbles, they also managed to draw a penalty for something no one had ever heard of - calling disconcerting signals...

It was so much simpler when Joe Banner was around. He was the cartoon villain with the black cape and the twitchy mustache. If the Eagles did something coldhearted or tone-deaf or just plain arrogant, Banner got the blame. Fans, media, radio talk-show hosts had their bad guy. So now what, now that Banner and his black hat are in Cleveland? It was Howie Roseman who stuck a second shiv into the back of defensive tackle Mike Patterson on Wednesday. It was Roseman, the general manager touted as a kinder and gentler contract negotiator, who slashed Patterson's pay in August and then deprived him of more money by putting him on the non-football illness reserve list.

Here are some observations and ruminations about Sunday night's Eagles-Cowboys game: ARLINGTON, Texas - Bryce Brown's rushing has been a revelation the last two games, but some of the credit for all those yards has to go to the Eagles' offensive line. The addition of Jake Scott seems to have made a big difference. With the veteran in at right guard instead of Danny Watkins, the unit has opened some mammoth-sized holes for Brown. And the rookie running back has wasted little time hitting them.

LANDOVER, Md. - The bad news, of course, if you really, really want the bad news, is that the Washington Redskins are a pretty awful football team. Not so awful they couldn't lay a 31-6 pasting on the somnolent Eagles on Sunday, the kind of outing that Ray Rhodes used to call a "good old country butt-kicking. " Ray knew about those, about what happens when a team ceases to either believe or care. His tenure as head coach ended in that kind of disarray and now, 14 years later, the guy who replaced him is facing the same situation.

Seven games remain and the playoffs are still a mathematical possibility, but Eagles general manager Howie Roseman is making a list, and it's full of well-paid veterans who could be out of jobs come the offseason. The Eagles are projected to be about $18 million over the salary cap for 2013. Even if they carry over some of the $22 million they're under the cap this season, they will be looking to dump salaries and renegotiate contracts (offer pay cuts). The majority of the team's starters are under contract for next season, with cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie the one notable exception.

REGARDLESS OF whether Andy Reid stays or goes - and if Big Red were a betting man, even he would bet the ranch on "goes" right now - there will be a lot of changes at One NovaCare Way in the offseason. Here's one man's look at those most likely to be playing somewhere else in 2013:   Going, going . . . *  Michael Vick: No matter who the Eagles' head coach is next season, Vick will not be back. He'll be 33 in June and has an $18 million salary-cap number next season.

To be an Eagles fan is to be an expert in disappointment, a connoisseur of dashed hopes. The team has suffered almost every flavor of defeat in Andy Reid's final season. There was the shocking blowout in Arizona, the near-miss in Pittsburgh, the collapse against Detroit, the whipping administered by Atlanta, the failed gut-check in New Orleans. But this one? This cruel beatdown at the hands of the hated Dallas Cowboys was a rare blend, indeed. In an absolute must-win situation, the Eagles reached out for the faint sweet glimmer of hope, only to have it cruelly snatched away and replaced by the most bitter of defeats.

At 5:23 p.m., with the game tied in the second quarter, rookie quarterback Nick Foles took his first regular-season NFL snap after entering the game to a big ovation. With a woozy Michael Vick unable to continue, Andy Reid had finally been forced into making a move he had avoided for weeks. Vick left with a concussion. Foles could not save the game. There may be nothing that can save this Eagles season or Reid's job. Foles helped the Eagles to a 17-10 third-quarter lead before the team unraveled in the fourth quarter and allowed two defensive touchdowns and a special teams touchdown in a 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

TONY ROMO was running for his life. The Cowboys' season was delicately hanging in the balance. There was 2 minutes and 14 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Dallas was trailing 17-10. Romo, a pocket passer with a penchant for pussyfooted plays, had already been sacked twice by a mostly toothless Eagles pass rush. It was third-and-5. Moments earlier, Nick Foles had led the Eagles on a field goal drive. Romo snapped the ball. He sidestepped Fletcher Cox, who was the first to get into the 'Boys backfield.
