Tucked away in this seemingly innocent story about Donovan McNabb was a very compelling bit of draft news that has yet to become mainstream information. The Eagles may have their eye on an offensive lineman way up the draft board. Jason Smith (6-foot-5, 300 pounds) out of Baylor is considered one of the top offensive linemen in the draft, and there is a strong possibility he'll be selected in the top 10. But apparently that's not stopping the Eagles from taking a look at the converted tight end. A solid pass blocker with experience at both left and right tackle, at least one analyst believes the Eagles could try to use their two [first-round picks]

Ashley Fox had a chat session with newsday.com yesterday. To read the entire transcript, go to http://www.philly.com/eagles Here are some key excerpts: BIGBLUEXLII: Are the Eagles healthy? Ashley Fox: The Eagles' biggest concern is Brian Westbrook. He's been playing with a slew of injuries all year (broken ribs, bum ankle, chronic knee), and he seemed to labor on Sunday. He hasn't practiced much in the last five-six weeks, and he hasn't practiced this week either. The Eagles need him to be effective, if not 100 percent healthy, on Sunday.

FIVE NUMBERS of significance following the Eagles' 24-17 win over the Jets: 3.1 Yards allowed per carry by the Eagles' defense. It's the best in the league through three weeks. Even without inside linebackers Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks and defensive end Cedric Thornton, the defense held the Jets' running backs to 34 yards on 12 carries. They've given up a league-best 11 rushing first downs in three games. They've allowed only 11 runs of 7 yards or more (in 84 attempts).

Tonight at 8:30, Lincoln Financial Field TV: 6ABC, ESPN Radio: WYSP-FM (94.1) Line: Eagles by 7 How They Match Up Redskins defense vs. Eagles offense The Eagles' offense was mostly unproductive in the opener against the Packers, compiling just 283 yards and 13 points. The Eagles went three-and-out on five of 11 possessions and produced 16 or fewer net yards on seven of the 11. The job doesn't figure to get any easier against the Redskins, who held Miami to 273 total yards in a 16-13 season-opening win. The Redskins' defense has a lot of speed, particularly at the linebacker position with the trio of Marcus Washington, London Fletcher and Rocky McIntosh.

Let's see now. Going into today's late afternoon soiree with the Giants, the Eagles have lost five straight games. The Giants have lost the last five games they have played at Veterans Stadium.
