Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has heard the reputation the Eagles defense has around the NFL. It's not flattering. "Everybody looks at us as a pretty defense," Rodgers-Cromartie said. "They're just big guys with big talent that don't really want to hit nobody. " The comments come after two games in which opponents scored a combined 58 points against the Eagles, with tackling a clear issue. Rodgers-Cromartie said opposing players tell him, "You guys are talented, but you all don't want to hit nobody.

First, the news or lack thereof: The Eagles and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie have yet to talk contract extension. The Eagles in the past used November to extend their young talent. Whether or not it was a shift from Joe Banner's to Howie Roseman's method of handling contract negotiations, a new deal hasn't been handed out during the regular season since 2009. For that reason and others - the amount of cash Roseman unloaded in extensions during the offseason; the uncertainty over Rodgers-Cromartie's value - it is unlikely that there will be an agreement before the season ends.

No doubt about it - the secondary is the primary focus of the wrath of Eagles fans. When fans were asked, "Who is the Eagles weakest link?" from among 25 choices, more than 70 percent of the 2,335 votes went to cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and safeties Kurt Coleman and Nate Allen. Asomugha himself got 40.2 percent - 939 votes. Now it's time, as promised in Tuesday's story, for the final showdown to determine Mr. Disappointment for the 2012 season.

* With his 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, LeSean McCoy became the first player in franchise history to score a touchdown in nine straight games. He's just the fourth NFL player since 1960 to score a TD in each of the first nine games of the season. The other three: Lenny Moore (1964), O.J. Simpson (1975) and George Rogers (1989). * McCoy's 906 rushing yards are the most ever by an Eagles running back in the first nine games of the season. * McCoy has 42 runs of 8 yards or more on 165 rushing attempts this season.

Up-Down Drill   LeSean McCoy Well, at least one Eagle came to play. McCoy has been giving maximum effort all season as far as one can tell, but he hasn't gotten support from his offensive line. But the Eagles running back had room to run against the Saints and delivered. His teammates and coaches let him down.   Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha The Eagles cornerbacks were above average in the first six games. But for some reason, when Todd Bowles took over as defensive coordinator, they forgot how to tackle.

One of the Denver Broncos' key defensive players on Sunday will be a familiar face to Eagles fans: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Rodgers-Cromartie spent two disappointing seasons in Philadelphia, where he tantalized with his size and speed but was inconsistent playing on an underachieving defense. The Eagles did not re-sign Rodgers-Cromartie this offseason. He signed with the Broncos, and he has impressed the coaching staff through three games. He has started each game this season and has an interception.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Jason Babin will miss about a week while recovering from a strained right calf, but the Eagles defensive end did not undergo a scheduled magnetic-resonance imaging exam on Sunday. "He swallowed one of those thermometers, and you can't go through an MRI with that in your system, so they're flushing that out," coach Andy Reid said. When you're finished cringing, it's not as painful as it sounds. The thermometer is not the standard instrument that checks fevers, but rather a pill-like thermometer that players swallow.

The Arizona Cardinals continued their improbable run through the NFC playoffs last night, shocking the second-seeded Carolina Panthers, 33-13, in front of a crowd of 73,695 at Bank of America Stadium. It was the second straight playoff victory for the fourth-seeded Cardinals, who entered the season with just one postseason victory in franchise history. Arizona (11-7) advances to its first NFC championship game and will either host the Eagles or travel to New York to face the Giants next Sunday.

Here are things to look for when the Eagles take on the New York Giants.   VY time The Eagles signed Vince Young exactly for this situation. Can he deliver? Young has taken only three snaps this season: scrambling once, throwing an interception, and handing off. This past week, though, he had a chance to prepare for the job, taking first-team snaps in practice. Can he recapture the magic that made him a star?   DeSean drama He missed a meeting and then a game.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Judging from some of his comments at yesterday's NFC coaches-media breakfast, I get the sense that Chip Kelly hopes to be a television game-show host in his next life, where he could spend his work week handing out cars and Caribbean cruises and lawn furniture and big, big wads of cash to lucky winners. "I tell all our players I hope they all get paid a billion dollars," the Eagles coach said. "It's not the reality, but I think they all should be paid. This league makes a lot of money.

NEWARK, N.J. - DeSean Jackson's face flashed on the big screen and the crowd that came to watch the Broncos and Seahawks get interviewed during Super Bowl media day booed. He laughed. This is New York Giants territory, and MetLife Stadium, site of the Eagles wide receiver's miracle punt return, is just up the road. Jackson, of course, wishes he was attending media day as a participant and playing at the Meadowlands on Sunday rather than spending Tuesday and the rest of the week making paid appearances.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie may retire from football if the Denver Broncos win Sunday's Super Bowl. In Philadelphia, Eagles fans are joking, "Didn't he retire two years ago?" But the former Eagles cornerback wasn't kidding about calling it quits even though he's coming off arguably the best season of his career, is still only 27 years old and will likely have multiple suitors when he hits free agency in March. "Coming out of college I gave myself a five-year goal," Rodgers-Cromartie said Monday.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Funny how things work out for some people. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie gave the Eagles two of the worst years of his career. We're talking hold-your-nose bad. He played so poorly that the team didn't even make an attempt to re-sign him after a 4-12 crash-and-burn season in 2012. Just told him good-bye and good-riddance and don't let the door hit you in the butt on your way out. But 6-2 corners with 4.4 speed don't grow on trees. DRC found a team desperate enough for coverage help to ignore what they saw on tape the last 2 years and offer him a 1-year, $5 million contract.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's laugh rang from his corner of the Denver Broncos locker room after Friday's practice, just as it did during his two seasons with the Eagles. Former Eagles coach Andy Reid used to say that "every day is a good day for DRC. " But the team suffered from more bad days than good days when Rodgers-Cromartie was in Philadelphia. Rodgers-Cromartie's smile is for good reason this season. He signed a one-year deal in Denver during the offseason and has become an integral part of the Broncos' defense.

Earl Wolff was sitting at his locker at the NovaCare Complex on Thursday afternoon, his back to everyone, his head hanging low, when out of the corner of his eye he saw DeMeco Ryans enter the room. A rookie safety, Wolff is nursing an injured right knee and has missed four of the Eagles' last five games. Though he had practiced Thursday, he still felt so sore that he worried whether he'd be healthy enough to suit up Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, for the game that will determine whether the Eagles reach the playoffs.

THERE HAS been a lot of attention given recently to Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and the rest of the Eagles' offense, which seems to have finally hit its stride. But how about some attention for a defense that has held opponents to an average of 17.4 points per game since that 52-20 loss at Denver in Week 4? In the wake of that lopsided loss to Peyton Manning and the Broncos on Sept. 29, the defensive unit has turned things around and become a big reason the Eagles have gone 5-2 after starting the season 1-3. While defensive coordinator Bill Davis has seen improvement each week since Denver, he hopes the defense will continue to grow and improve through the end of the season.

Here are some observations and ruminations about Sunday's Eagles-Broncos game: DENVER - One of the key matchups on Sunday was Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson against his former teammate, Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The Broncos trusted Rodgers-Cromartie, who signed with the Broncos after the Eagles let him walk, on Jackson, keeping him in one-on-one coverage without a safety over the top. Jackson finished with two catches for 34 yards. Jackson's first catch came when the Eagles moved Jackson to the slot, which, as Eagles fans know from 2011, is not Rodgers-Cromartie's specialty.

The hurry-up portion of the Eagles season concludes Thursday night in Lincoln Financial Field, and the third game in 11 days carries with it a story line that is quite obviously made for television. The prime-time schedule ends here for the Eagles, with the networks having wrung them dry and discarded them after the first three games. The Monday Night Football opener, teasing the general public with its first look at Chip Kelly's wacko-neato offense and with the ballyhooed comeback of Robert Griffin III, was a natural, of course.
