LOOKS AS IF the Redskins have more problems than their politically incorrect nickname. On Sunday, quarterback Robert Griffin III shared his frustration after a 20-point loss to the visiting Buccaneers that dropped the 'Skins to 3-7. "It takes 11 men," said Griffin, who threw two interceptions, including one that was returned for a touchdown. "It doesn't take one guy, and that's proven. If you want to look at the good teams in this league and the great quarterbacks, the Peytons and the Aaron Rodgerses, those guys don't play well if their guys don't play well.

David Golkow, 16, figures he has been on athletic teams since he was 4 and involved in sports since he can remember. He says he's never been bullied, but over the years, he's heard hurtful things said to others. He's an admirer of former Eagles star DeSean Jackson and the work Jackson's foundation has done to combat bullying. But then, in the summer before his sophomore year, David discovered Bully , a wrenching documentary about the abuse some children face. An idea took root.

THE LATE Al Davis was obsessed with speed. Always took the wide receiver or defensive back with the fastest 40 time, regardless of production, intelligence, hands or length of rap sheet. His fondness for guys who could fly was why the Raiders inexplicably selected Darrius Heyward-Bey with the seventh pick in the 2009 draft, a curious decision that ultimately allowed Jeremy Maclin to fall to the Eagles 12 picks later. When it comes to wide receivers, Chip Kelly cares more about size than speed.

THE FRANCHISE has been around since 1933, and in that time, only four wide receivers have appeared in more Eagles games than Jason Avant, who buckled his chin strap here 116 times over eight seasons. He was never a star, but in his prime, Avant, a fourth-round draft pick in 2006, was a key third-down target and an example of selflessness coaches hoped younger players would follow. Avant spent so much time after practice catching balls from the JUGS machine, it would have been fitting for the team to bolt a plaque to the base commemorating his dedication, after he was released last spring.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - There's no crime in being pretty good. Consider Canada; even Americans agree their neighbors are all right. Malaysia isn't Singapore, but it's hard to have a bad time in Kuala Lumpur. Sweden and Norway get all the press, but you might actually come out smarter if you're raised in Finland. There is no häpeä in hailing from Helsinki, no shame having kinfolk in Calgary. So, too, there is nothing wrong with being an Eagle; nothing wrong with being pretty good.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Jeremy Maclin was breathless after his breathless performance. "I'm tired, man. I'm tired. Very tired," the Eagles receiver said. "I'm also disappointed we didn't get the job done. " Maclin set a career high with 187 receiving yards on 12 receptions and caught two passes for touchdowns, including a 54-yard, third-quarter bomb. His 32 career touchdown catches tied him with DeSean Jackson and Ben Hawkins for eighth in Eagles history. What may have been most impressive about Maclin's performance was how he returned from a collision with Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, who was knocked out of the game with a concussion.

TODAY, JUST as they did last year, the Eagles return from their bye looking toward a date with the Arizona Cardinals. Some things are the same, many things are different for two NFC teams that finished 10-6 last year, the Eagles winning a weak NFC East, the Cards shut out of the playoffs in the powerful NFC West. Had Arizona beaten the Birds last Dec. 1, instead of getting nipped, 24-21, after coming back from a 24-7 second-half deficit, the Cards would have gone to the 2013 playoffs.

PAT SHURMUR feels most comfortable when he's uncomfortable. It is no surprise, then, that he smiles even as he squirms when confronted with the million-dollar question: What does he DO, exactly? Shurmur is the offensive coordinator of an offensive system for which he usually gets no credit - neither for its conception, nor its implementation, nor its execution on game day. Will this perception handicap Shurmur the next time he is considered for a head-coaching job? Hardly.

Howie Roseman took a seat on the set of his radio show at Chickie's & Pete's in South Philadelphia on Monday afternoon with noticeable euphoria among fans in attendance and callers who wanted to chat with the Eagles' general manager. Roseman was hit with requests for autographs and photographs. He discussed some of the key acquisitions during the offseason. One caller praised his role in hiring Chip Kelly. Roseman, who is the only NFL general manager with a radio show, has sat in that chair during less friendly times.

IT WAS MIDNIGHT in the locker room after the sixth game of the season. An Eagles tight end had scored two touchdowns in a shutout of the Giants. You would have thought Brent Celek scored both. He scored neither. "Hey, congratulations!" Celek hollered at James Casey, who had a football tucked under his arm - the football he caught for a touchdown that might otherwise have been Celek's. "See him?" Celek asked, unprovoked, pointing at another teammate. "He made unbelievable catches all night tonight.
