The season is a wreck. The question now for the Eagles is how far the rot spreads. With any realistic hope for a playoff berth gone, does Andy Reid still have the command of his locker room to salvage a reasonable record? Does his collection of young talent and veteran free agents have the pride to do so? The answers may determine whether Reid returns in 2012. "It's easy when you have a record of 3-6 to go your separate way," tight end Brent Celek said after Sunday's loss.

The bad news keeps coming for the Eagles. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin emerged from Sunday's game with a sprain in his AC joint - in his shoulder - and what coach Andy Reid described as a "slight" hamstring strain. Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has a high ankle sprain and torn ligaments and was in a walking boot, and offensive lineman King Dunlap suffered a concussion. If Maclin misses time he would represent the most significant loss. He leads the team in receptions and receiving yards.

Things to look for when the Eagles play host to the Cardinals on Sunday.   True Stew A number of the Eagles' free-agent signings have turned out to be less than advertised, but none come close to matching the bust that Stewart Bradley has been in Arizona. The Cardinals signed the former Eagles linebacker to a five-year, $30 million contract, which at this point sounds ridiculous. Bradley has started only one game and can get on the field only on special teams.

IT'S BECOMING apparent that Howard Mudd really likes King Dunlap. That's surprising, because Mudd's reputation is for cultivating smaller, quicker linemen. At 6-9, 330, with feet that could pass for cross-country skis, the King is small and quick in much the same way that Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is a punishing hitter. But with Evan Mathis limping and missing practice yesterday as he labors with a case of turf toe on his right foot, Dunlap was the left guard, even though he told reporters he has never played guard in his life, aside from some scout-team reps late last season.

LANDOVER, Md. - They made it look easy, but it wasn't. You could infer it was a struggle from the glacial pace at which Winston Justice pulled on his suit after the game for the train ride home, Justice creaky and hesitant. He had just played in his first football game of 2011 (we're not counting lining up for extra points last week at Buffalo). Played every snap of a season-saving, 20-13 victory over the host Washington Redskins. Lived to tell the tale. More important, Michael Vick lived to tell the tale.

It has already been a year of extremes for the Eagles. The bright, all-in days of August have given way to windy, rainy mid-October, with the Eagles sitting at 1-4 and desperate for a win Sunday. Only, desperate might not quite cover it. If the Eagles lose Sunday, their season of high hopes will effectively end before it reaches the halfway point. No 1-5 team has made the playoffs since the NFL went to its current postseason format in 1990. But a loss could mean more than just a lost season.

Two years ago, DeSean Jackson took a pass over the middle, turned on his jets and zoomed 64 yards for an electrifying touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. To mark his arrival in the end zone, the Eagles wide receiver flipped over the goal line and landed as if he had slid safely, feet first, into second base. It was acrobatic and breathtaking, but it was foolish. Jackson was questionable that day because of a groin injury and needed a cortisone shot to even play. When he ran to the sideline after his celebration he vomited.

On the Eagles sideline, Alex Henery stood alone practicing kicks into a net, staying in his routine - his thoughts focused, Henery said later, on getting his hips through on the next kick, if he got back on the field for a potential game-winner. The rookie kicker couldn't remember ever missing two field goals in a row, at any level. So what could be the odds of missing three straight? We'll never know, after a late Eagles fumble took the game away from Henery's foot. On the sideline, he whipped his helmet off and swiped the ball into the bottom of the net, knocking it slightly off its moorings.
