ORCHARD PARK, NY - Juqua Parker has been in the NFL for 11 years, more than any other Eagle. So it stands to reason that the defensive end would realize that the Bills, after trying one hard count on fourth and 1 with the game on the line, were not going to actually run a play. Except Parker said he thought they were, and he jumped offside, giving Buffalo a first down with 1 minute, 23 seconds left Sunday and effectively sealing the Eagles' fourth straight loss. "I thought they [were]

The Eagles will be without two of their top defensive ends Sunday when they play the Giants in their home opener. Darryl Tapp (torn pectoral muscle) and Juqua Parker (high ankle sprain) were both ruled out for Sunday's game, coach Andy Reid said. That means defensive end Phillip Hunt will likely see more playing time this week and defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins , tied for the team lead with three sacks, may play some at defensive end. That would leave more snaps for fellow tackles Trevor Laws and Antonio Dixon . "Well, we're lucky we have some depth there," Reid said.

The Eagles on Wednesday signed defensive end Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, their third-round draft pick. He was chosen 86th overall out of Washington and signed a four-year contract. Te'o-Nesheim finished his college career with 30 sacks, a Washington record. He is part of a remade defensive- end grouping that includes Pro Bowler Trent Cole, Juqua Parker, first-round pick Brandon Graham, and Darryl Tapp, acquired in an off-season trade with Seattle. Coach Andy Reid has praised Te'o-Nesheim's intelligence and flexibility.

Paul Domowitch's Report Card on the Eagles-49ers game: RUSHING OFFENSE: Correll Buckhalter did an impressive job in place of injured Brian Westbrook. He rushed for 93 yards and a touchdown. Had 61 yards on 10 carries in the second half. And that doesn't include his 7-catch, 85-yard contribution as a receiver. Grade: B-plus PASSING OFFENSE: Relying heavily on DeSean Jackson and Correll Buckhalter, Donovan McNabb threw for 280 yards and 2 touchdowns. For the third time in six games, he wasn't sacked.

Here are some numbers that made a difference in Sunday's Eagles-Packers game:   5 for 28 As in, five QB sacks against the Birds for 28 yards lost. It's not the yards that matter as much as the five sacks. Any time a QB gets sacked, it sets up an opportunity for a fumble or injury. And since the Eagles fumbled three times and lost one of them, and also lost their top QB, the last thing they need is more loose balls and injuries.   0 As in, interceptions for Eagles QB Michael Vick.

The Eagles are a week away from opening their preseason slate at home against New England, but it's already been quite an eventful training camp. Here's a look: Sunday, July 26: Rookies and select veterans reported. The only player failing to show up was first-round pick Jeremy Maclin, who was holding out because of a contract dispute. Monday, July 27: One veteran, injured franchise running back Brian Westbrook, worked out with trainer Rick Burkholder. Tuesday, July 28: Longtime defensive coordinator Jim Johnson died of cancer at age 68. Wednesday, July 29: The remaining veterans reported, including disgruntled cornerback Sheldon Brown.

* Juqua Parker's 56-yard fumble return for a touchdown in the first quarter was the second TD of his career. He had a 55-yard interception return for a TD against San Francisco on Oct. 12, 2008. * DeSean Jackson recorded the 12th 100-yard receiving game of his career. It was only his second 100-yard game in his last nine starts. * Jason Babin had two of the Eagles' five sacks. It was the seventh multiple-sack game of his career. * Jason Kelce became the first rookie to start at center for the Eagles in a season opener since Gene Cepetelli in 1968.

The extra days off proved to be just what the Eagles ordered for several injured players. Cornerback Asante Samuel and defensive end Juqua Parker are expected to play Sunday against the Cowboys, coach Andy Reid said Monday on WIP-AM (610). Samuel (knee) and Parker (hip), both of whom sat out the last two games, likely will practice Wednesday when the Eagles return to the NovaCare Complex, he said. "They both seem to be getting healthy," Reid said. "I think they'll be out there and ready to go for practice.

Up-Down Drill Brandon Weeden Weeden had a rough first NFL start. The 28-year-old rookie quarterback was the best defense for the Eagles. He overthrew several open receivers, failed to recognize a few more, and also tossed four interceptions. His passer rating was 5.1. You read that right.   Michael Vick He wasn't as bad as Weeden, but the Eagles are in trouble if Vick keeps playing this way. Big trouble.   O-line struggles The Eagles, as a whole, were as sloppy in the first half as a 2-year-old at dinner.

The Trevor Laws Eagles era ended last week without fanfare. At this point it has become commonplace: another high draft pick expended on a defensive lineman, another come and gone without making even a dent in the starting lineup. The Eagles' dubious history with drafting on defense has been well-documented, especially on the line, where Andy Reid has invested so many of his top selections over the last decade. Despite those missteps - or perhaps because of them - the Eagles are again poised to take a defensive lineman in the early stages of this year's draft.

TIME DOES indeed fly, and it doesn't even have to pay airline baggage fees. Todd Herremans arrived in the fourth round of the 2005 draft, from that well-known cradle of NFL talent, Saginaw Valley State. He was a 6-6 offensive tackle who'd pushed around puny Division II defensive linemen, and whose arms were (gasp!) too short for him to play outside effectively, the people who know such things said. So Herremans became an extremely tall, angular guard, a solid offensive line regular starting in 2006, reliable, but fairly unremarkable.

Every Eagles fan knows that Juan Castillo's defense blew five fourth-quarter leads, each seemingly worse than the one before. But that same group finished the season ranked eighth in yards allowed, 10th in points, and tied for first in sacks. The turnaround is remarkable. Four weeks ago, after getting run over by the Seattle Seahawks, the Eagles defense ranked 17th in yards and 22d in points allowed. It might still be too late, but the case against defensive coordinator Castillo is not as open-and-shut as it once seemed.

SOMETIMES THERE is shock and sadness, when boxes and bags come out for packing up lockers. Not so much yesterday at NovaCare. This was not the day after a playoff loss, as packing-up time has been the past 3 years, and nine times during Andy Reid's 13-year reign. The 2011 season was mortally wounded back in September and October, several Eagles acknowledged. The Eagles were just about dead when they were 1-4, and all but officially dead when they were 4-8, and of course, they were finally eliminated from the playoff race on Christmas Eve. No, they didn't enjoy watching Sunday night as the New York Giants claimed the NFC East title, the same Giants team they handled at MetLife Stadium, 17-10, back on Nov. 20, the Eagles playing then without Michael Vick.

THE EAGLES have 11 pending unrestricted free agents and one pending restricted free agent, defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, who almost certainly will return. Some of the unrestricted 11 are strong bets to be Eagles when training camp starts in less than 8 months. Others, not so much. Here's a rundown: * Defensive end Victor Abiamiri: Missed the last two seasons with injuries. The 57th overall pick in the 2007 draft isn't getting another contract here. * Running back Ronnie Brown: The man who flung a fumble at the other team on the goal line against the 49ers will always hold a place in franchise lore.

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Eagles' playoff hopes ended Saturday, and so might have LeSean McCoy 's chances to win the NFL rushing title or set an Eagles rushing record. McCoy had just 35 yards on 13 carries, giving him 1,309 for the year. Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 103 yards Saturday, giving him 1,437 for the season, a 128-yard edge heading into the final week of the season. "I laid an egg today, so I probably won't get to get it," McCoy said. He left the game briefly with what coach Andy Reid described as a "tweaked" ankle, and then briefly returned before giving way to backup Ronnie Brown . Wilbert Montgomery 's team rushing record of 1,512 yards in a season now appears safe.

Kurt Coleman saw the play develop in front of him: Santonio Holmes caught a short pass and turned to run. Coleman, knowing he had linebacker Casey Matthews also in pursuit, lined up Holmes and unloaded. The hit jarred the ball loose, and Juqua Parker recovered and ran it back for a touchdown, sparking the Eagles' rout of the Jets on Sunday. It was the second touchdown Coleman had set up in two games - he ran an interception back to Miami's 1-yard line the week before - and the hit reflected a new, aggressive mind-set the safety said he has taken on since returning to the starting lineup.

JEREMY MACLIN hustled downfield and threw blocks on at least a couple of key plays Sunday against the Jets. Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg noticed. "Jeremy has been blocking like a madman, and you kind of expect that [from him], but he did a heck of a job in ways that sometimes you don't see, or don't get credit for," Mornhinweg said yesterday. What makes a wideout a good blocker? "Guts," Mornhinweg said. "The big, strong, physical guys are typically a little bit better, and he's a pretty strong and physical guy. " Mornhinweg said wideouts coach David Culley emphasizes blocking and does a good job teaching it. "You're helping your teammates," said Maclin, who seems finally close to 100 percent in his recovery from a hamstring injury.
