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.

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.

GOING BY THIS morning's standings, the Eagles do not play a team with a winning record for the next 7 weeks, not until the season finale against the Giants. So there is that. On those self-same standings, the Eagles have five losses, all well-deserved. If the season ended today, the last wild-card team in the NFC would have four losses. Despite how abysmal the Eagles looked against the Saints on Monday night - and abysmal does not begin to describe the wreckage, not really - we are not talking about a monumental stretch.

EXCEPT FOR the losing, the contention that the Eagles have quit on their season and head coach Andy Reid lacks real evidence. Furthermore, besides the killer turnovers, the red-zone inefficiencies and the defense's sporadic tackling, this is a gifted team fully capable of beating any given team on any given day. Except the team it is currently playing. Yes, four consecutive defeats lend credence to the supposition that any team with an acceptable depth of talent that loses like that must not care.

Andy Reid said he spoke to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie after Monday's loss to New Orleans, but declined to elaborate on the conversation aside from noting that Lurie knows how to read the NFL standings. "Jeffrey's a competitive guy. He feels like the rest of us. He likes to win football games," Reid said on Tuesday. "That's why he's in this business. That's why he owns this business. That's his expectation. " Whatever the real expectation for this season - and Reid and Lurie were supposed to be tuned into that a lot more than the rest of us - what has taken place certainly doesn't clear Lurie's low bar of "acceptable.

NEW ORLEANS - It should be shocking, the way the Eagles humiliated themselves on national television in a 28-13 loss to the Saints on Monday night. But didn't we see exactly the same game last year in Seattle? A defense that has no interest in tackling or contact, an offense that just can't get started. It was all there in that nationally televised debacle. It was all there again Monday night. There was Nnamdi "Night Train" Asomugha shrinking from contact, allowing running backs to sprint free.

Eagles strong safety Nate Allen did not practice Friday after suffering a left hamstring injury during Thursday's workout. Allen strained his right hamstring in the fourth quarter of a 26-23 overtime loss to the Detroit Lions on Oct. 14. After the bye week, he returned and played in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons, recording nine tackles. He said his right hamstring is fine. "It is frustrating," he said of the latest setback, but "Monday is not out of the picture. " If Allen is not able to play against the New Orleans Saints, David Sims would start.

Michael Vick sat alone at his locker stall talking into his iPhone. Three hours earlier, his audience was significantly larger, and it wanted to know if the weekly speculation over his job security was getting to him. "I'm human," Vick said Thursday. "It does tend to bother you because I have emotions just like everybody else. It's not like you can just block certain things out. You want to have that comfort level. You want to know that everything is going to be what it's going to be at the end of the day. . . . I kind of let it get to me, to be honest.

THERE IS a poignant scene toward the tail end of the classic film "Rudy" in which Rudy Ruettiger is trying to make an impression on the Notre Dame coaching staff in the last practice of the season. Ruettiger the runt drilled third-team halfback Jamie O'Hara, who proceeded to throw a tantrum. "Last practice of the season and this [expletive] thinks it's the Super Bowl," O'Hara said. Legendary Irish coach Ara Parseghian, played by Jason Miller, freaked out. "You just summed up your entire sorry career here in one sentence!"

Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks was benched for the first drive of Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Coach Andy Reid said it was for "disciplinary reasons" and Kendricks confirmed it was because he was late to a meeting on Friday. "I had to be accountable," Kendricks said. "I let my team down. " Casey Matthews started at strong-side linebacker in Kendricks' place. He watched from the sideline while the Falcons went on a 16-play, 80-yard scoring drive. Kendricks entered the game on the second drive, when he was charged with a critical pass interference on 3d-and-7.
