Brandon Graham was excited to find his speed would take him past an NFL tackle. Maybe a little too excited. Maybe a little too far past the tackle. "It was me not using a counter move, me not coming back inside," the Eagles' first-round rookie said after his NFL preseason debut, in the Birds' 28-27 victory over visiting Jacksonville last night. Graham spent many of what he estimated were 15 snaps or so an arm's length away from the Jaguars' quarterback - especially starter David Garrard, who Eagles coach Andy Reid noted stepped up in the pocket a few times when Graham seemed about to hit him. Live and learn.

Les Bowen The Eagles have never beaten the Jaguars (0-3), but they haven't played since 2006, so that isn't likely to make much difference. Andy Reid is 2-8 against the AFC South, though, which is a more interesting stat. The Birds are 25th in total defense, but Jacksonville is 29th, and the Eagles are getting Stewart Bradley back. Jacksonville benched quarterback David Garrard last week, but will trot him out again this week because replacement Luke McCown suffered a season-ending knee injury.

DAVID GARRARD lost his starting job the same way he got it: just days before the season opener and in stunning fashion. Jacksonville released Garrard yesterday, making a decision that will save the franchise $9 million this season. Whether it saves coach Jack Del Rio's job remains to be seen. Team owner Wayne Weaver has said the Jaguars need to make the playoffs for Del Rio to stick around for a 10th season. Del Rio had said in training camp and the preseason that Garrard would be the starter.

ATLANTA'S Matt Ryan was limited in practice yesterday after taking a pounding against the Eagles on Sunday, but he'll be ready to go when the Falcons take on NFC South rival Tampa Bay. Ryan was listed as having a knee injury. He would only say he feels about normal for the middle of the week after a physical game. "You're still a little sore, but I'll be good to go and ready to roll on Sunday," he said. The Falcons (1-1) need to do a better job protecting Ryan, who's already been sacked nine times and hit 17 more times.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - It was as if Darryl Tapp had been shot out of a cannon after sitting inside the barrel for two weeks. After not dressing for the first two games, the defensive end recorded his first sack of the season on the Eagles defense's first series Sunday against the Jaguars. Tapp, who was part of defensive-line rotation that corralled Jacksonville all game, sacked David Garrard on the seventh play. He recorded only one other tackle in the game, but set the tone in a 28-3 victory that was important for a defense that struggled in the first two weeks.

ON SATURDAY, sitting at a blackjack table at Caesars in Atlantic City, Joselio Hanson's cellphone rang. It was the Eagles. They had cut him. Hanson, a valuable backup cornerback, didn't sweat it. He went back to the table, recouped his losses and left the casino. "I broke even," Hanson said. "It all worked out. " Indeed it did. Hanson, 30, received only tepid interest from five other teams, the Giants and Rams among them. Neither was willing to sign Hanson this week; signing him this week would mean his contract is guaranteed through the season.

Former No. 1 draft pick Tim Couch signed a 2-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday, getting a chance to revive his career as a backup to quarterback Byron Leftwich. Couch, the No. 1 overall pick by Cleveland in 1999, hasn't played a down in the NFL since the 2004 preseason. The contract, which did not include a signing bonus, will pay Couch the veteran minimum of $595,000 this season if he makes the team. He would earn slightly more in 2008. Jacksonville coach Jack Del Rio wanted to take a look at the former Kentucky star, who had shoulder surgery last year.

Ground woes for the Cowboys Tony Romo doesn't want to throw the ball 50 times a game. He recognizes the value of a good running game. But it's tough to be balanced when the running game is wretched. That's a fair term to use for a Cowboys rushing attack that ranks 28th in the NFL with 69.5 yards per game. "It's difficult because we need to get more out of what we're trying to do," Romo said. "I'm not sure exactly the statistics, but ... when you run the ball and run successfully, it makes everything a lot easier.

Carolina Panthers rookie quarterback Cam Newton said when he picked up the phone, he was surprised to hear Michael Vick on the other end. "He was giving me [advice] on what he thought I needed to do, as far as what I'm capable of doing," said Newton, the top pick in this year's NFL draft. "He's been through my situation . . . Obviously he's a person that I idolize and whatever he says right now is golden. " At least Vick, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2001 NFL draft, wasn't thrown into the fire as a rookie with Atlanta the way Newton will be Sunday when the Panthers open the season against Arizona and Vick's former Eagles teammate, quarterback Kevin Kolb.

RAVENS 31, BRONCOS 17: At Baltimore, Ray Rice ran for 133 yards and two touchdowns and the Ravens (4-1) coasted to their third straight win. With a team-high six tackles, Ray Lewis spearheaded a Baltimore defense that relentlessly pursued Denver quarterback Kyle Orton and limited the Broncos to 39 rushing yards. The Broncos (2-3) fell to 0-5 against the Ravens in Baltimore. Orton went 23-for-38 for 314 yards and two touchdowns to Brandon Lloyd. But Denver never got closer than 10 points after the Ravens went up by 17 with 9:21 left in the second quarter.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Darryl Tapp didn't want to reveal the "weaknesses" the Eagles spotted while watching game tape of the Jacksonville Jaguars. "Can't say," Tapp said after getting his first sack as an Eagle. "We might see them again. " That seems incredibly unlikely, since a rematch would be possible only in the Super Bowl. The team the Eagles crushed, 28-3, on Sunday has approximately zero chance of winning a championship. The Jags are wretched, a fact that makes it difficult to get a handle on how good the Eagles' defense might be. If the Eagles made beating David Garrard and the Jags look easy, it may simply be because it was easy.

JACKSONVILLE - Fifty-nine. Sean McDermott mentioned that number a lot to his defensive players last week during their preparation for yesterday's game against Jacksonville. It's the number of points the Eagles had given up in their first two games against the Packers and the Lions. There are 32 teams in the National Football League and no one had allowed more in Weeks 1 and 2. "We have a lot of players with a lot of pride," the Eagles defensive coordinator said after his unit held the Jaguars without a touchdown in a 28-3 win. "We wanted to establish four quarters of good, solid, physical football.
