There have been weeks this season when Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis appreciated every minute between games and his players could bask in the shine that comes in the days after stifling an opponent. But in the few days before Thanksgiving, Davis seemed thankful that the Eagles had a short week. Coming off a pitiful showing last Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the only good news for the Eagles defense is that the bad taste in their mouths had little time to linger.

DeMarco Murray had a chance to address a sensitive issue head-on Tuesday after the Eagles' walk-through practice in preparation for their Thanksgiving game against the Lions in Detroit. Instead, the team's top running back opted to slide out a side door before the locker room opened to reporters. It was a similar on-field maneuver by Murray two games ago against Miami that created the issue, which eventually resulted in a searing comment from an anonymous teammate on Sunday after a blowout loss to Tampa Bay. On the final play of the first quarter in the Dolphins game, the NFL's 2014 rushing champion took a handoff on the right hash mark from quarterback Sam Bradford and ran about 15 yards to his left in order to pick up the 1 yard he needed for the first down.

IN TRYING to explain how his defense managed to get scorched for 283 rushing yards Sunday by Doug Martin and the Tampa Bay Bucs, Bill Davis mentioned missed gap fits, missed tackles and bad angles. Linebacker DeMeco Ryans agreed with all of those Tuesday, and even added one of his own: lack of effort. "The runs were (about) gaps and also tackling and effort getting to the ball," Ryans said. "Even if somebody is out of a gap, if you have all 11 guys really going and getting after the ballcarrier, you're not going to have those types of runs happen.

WHAT SHOULD be the Eagles' deepest position helped kill them Sunday. The one thing they should do best was the one thing they did worst. And Jordan Hicks hated to see it. "It's tough to watch," Hicks said, when asked what it's like to be unable to help the Birds stop the run, after suffering a season-ending pectoral muscle tear at Dallas, Nov. 8. "Obviously, everybody feels like they can make an impact, but I've got full confidence in our guys....

BACK IN THE 1980s, when Tandy Corporation sold its TRS-80s out of cozy Radio Shack storefronts, the company routinely reviewed the properties for profitability. Stores that chronically lost money were designated "W" stores. Usually, a new general manager would be assigned to those stores. The new GM had three years to turn a profit, which was a reasonable amount of time. Employees often needed to be fired, or at least retrained. The new GM always had to enforce corporate policies that had become lax. Sometimes, there were double books; sometimes, unwarranted employee benefits ("borrowing" a stereo for a month or so)

When Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans played for Jess Lanier High School in Bessemer, Ala., it wasn't uncommon for assistant coach Harry Winston to bring his precocious nephew to practice, a budding youth player who, even at 6 or 7 years old, was happy to tell the older boys about his exploits as a quarterback. "He was this young kid, always throwing the ball around, always talking about how great he was in little league and how he was dominating games even back then," Ryans said with a laugh.

DeMECO RYANS won't be an All-Pro this year. He won't lead the league in any major categories. If you were to make a list of the most productive players on Bill Davis' defense this season, he'd probably rank outside of the top five. But DeMeco Ryans will be on the field on Sunday, and that alone is an achievement to consider. It was a little over a year ago that Ryans planted on the turf at NRG Stadium after intercepting a pass from Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and felt his Achilles' tendon ripple up through his right calf.

Running back Ryan Mathews left the Eagles' 20-19 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday with a concussion. Mathews' last play was a rush for no gain in the third quarter. He finished with eight carries for 18 yards and a touchdown. He also had two catches for 22 yards. Mathews and quarterback Sam Bradford were the two players injured in the loss. Wide receiver Jordan Matthews needed attention from the trainers in the fourth quarter, but he only had the wind knocked out of him. Peters sits out again Left tackle Jason Peters missed his second consecutive game with a back injury that is affecting his quadriceps.

BILL DAVIS knew what Jordan Hicks had done, as Hicks pounded the turf in Dallas Sunday night after stretching his left arm out to snag shifty Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley, as Beasley ran in the opposite directon. "It was just one of those things, where the arm tackle just hit the wrong spot," Davis, the Eagles' defensive coordinator, who has been a linebackers coach for four NFL teams, said Tuesday. On the Eagles' bench in Dallas, reserve linebacker Najee Goode also understood.

Bill Davis started the season planning a rotation of DeMeco Ryans, Mychal Kendricks, and Kiko Alonso at inside linebacker. Jordan Hicks worked his way into that group because of how he played as an injury replacement, and Davis admitted Hicks' season-ending torn pectoral injury is a "big hit. " Hicks' absence leaves the Eagles back with what Davis planned at the beginning of the year - at least when his linebackers are fully healthy. That's not the case yet. "We're back to the guys that we originally started with, and they go day-to-day," Davis said.
