The Green Bay Packers are showing interest in Tim Couch and Eric Crouch. Yesterday, Cleveland granted the Packers permission to talk with Couch, a quarterback whose 5-year stint with the Browns effectively ended earlier this month when the club signed free-agent quarterback Jeff Garcia. Green Bay could be looking for Couch to be a backup and potential successor to Brett Favre, who is nearing the end of his career. The Packers' current backup is journeyman Doug Pederson. Crouch, the 2001 Heisman Trophy winner who twice previously bolted NFL training camps and seemed to be retired, has been reinstated by Green Bay from the "reserve/retired" list, according to ESPN.

There may be two games on Monday night, but there is only one Monday Night Football. Because of last night's World Series game in Miami, the Chicago Bears at Miami Dolphins game was switched to tonight. But the only game on the tube is Green Bay at New England (Channel 6, 9 p.m.) in a rematch of last season's Super Bowl. The Packers (5-2), who have had trouble stopping the run, should get a big boost in that area from 350-pound nose tackle Gilbert Brown, who is returning from a knee injury.

The Green Bay Packers yesterday traded Brent Fullwood to the Cleveland Browns for a draft choice, saying the fullback did not fit into the club's system. Fullwood missed the second half of Sunday's 27-13 loss to Chicago after carrying twice for minus-3 yards in the first half. Fullwood said he was too ill to continue playing and did not come out of the locker room for the second half. Fullwood led the Packers in rushing last year with 821 yards. He had 124 yards in five games this year.

THE GREEN BAY Packers have raised $67 million the last 6 weeks by selling shares of stock for $250 apiece. When the Packers decided to upgrade Lambeau Field - a $143 million effort to add 6,700 additional seats, high-definition video screens and a new entrance by next year - they resolved not to ask for a single taxpayer dime. Instead, they reverted back to the same strategy that has helped keep the Packers afloat several times in team history - a stock sale. The latest offering wrapped up Wednesday.

The Green Bay Packers are interested in signing troubled running back Lawrence Phillips as a backup to Dorsey Levens, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. Last week, Phillips rushed for 177 yards and spurred the greatest comeback in NFL Europe history by leading the Barcelona Dragons to a 42-35 victory over Scotland after they trailed, 28-3. The winning touchdown was a 73-yard romp by Phillips. The former Nebraska running back, who also played in St. Louis and Miami before being waived by both teams, already has set NFL Europe season records in rushing yards and touchdowns.

THE ROUT WAS ON and the mind wandered, just as it had the night before in front of the television. Sunday night, it was the Packers. Monday night, it was the Eagles. And now the splendid collision is upon us. Eagles vs. Packers. And with that, beginning next Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field, the truth will begin to be told. This night was the setup, just as the Packers' bludgeoning of the Bears had been. This night was the time when the Eagles' cornerbacks finally got their interceptions, when their defense was best described with an adjective one degree beyond voracious, and when Mark Sanchez ran the offense proficiently in his first start in a couple of years.

Green Bay had Tampa Bay's once-vaunted defense on the verge of collapse, so coach Mike Sherman was determined to finish it off. Facing fourth-and-1 from the Buccaneers' 16 in a tie game, the Packers sent Najeh Davenport barreling up the middle for 5 yards instead of going for a go-ahead field goal. Three plays later, Ahman Green scored from the 1 to finish a 98-yard march that gave the Packers a 20-13 victory yesterday. "It was such a beautiful drive, I just hated to let it go to a kicker.

THE GREEN BAY Packers are mourning the reported death of offensive coordinator Joe Philbin's 21-year-old son, who was reported missing Sunday night. An Oshkosh, Wis., police spokesman said the identity of the person whose body was pulled from the Fox River near the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh campus was not being released pending official notification and wishes of the family.

The outlook for injured Green Bay cornerback Al Harris is encouraging. The former Eagle hurt his spleen in Sunday's game against Dallas and won't play in tomorrow's game against Tampa Bay. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Harris would be out for "at least three to four weeks. " However, it is no longer feared the Pro Bowler would be lost for the season or his playing career is in jeopardy. McCarthy said Harris' spleen doesn't need removal and would be allowed to heal on its own. Giants.

THE EAGLES' defensive meltdown Sunday at Green Bay began with a faulty assumption that the Packers would want to run more than they did. It continued with a fatal inability to generate enough pressure to make Aaron Rodgers uncomfortable, and too often it ended with Bradley Fletcher flailing ineffectively at Jordy Nelson or occasionally Randall Cobb somewhere downfield, as yet another Rodgers pass settled into the hands of a Packers receiver. As always, it was that last part that got everyone's attention.

A YEAR ago, when their offensive line was healthy and dominant and their star running back was gobbling up yards at a franchise-record pace, a 109-yard rushing performance like the one Sunday against the Packers would be considered a disappointment; a too-small fish that would get tossed back into the lake. But given the struggles of the Eagles' run game this season, no fish is too small, especially when it's caught in an otherwise forgettable, 33-point loss. "I felt we ran the ball with consistency the other night," offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The elation from six days earlier became a distant memory on Sunday, when players packed their bags in a locker room, humiliated by the worst loss since Chip Kelly became the Eagles' coach. The Green Bay Packers' 53-20 win over the Eagles escalated into a rout before halftime, and the Eagles were left swallowing an embarrassing defeat just days after what was perhaps their best performance of the season. "With the way we played today, it wouldn't have mattered if we played Oakland, who hasn't won a game yet," wide receiver Jeremy Maclin said.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Mark Sanchez's history hangs over his head like an anvil, and since he joined the Eagles, the thread that holds it there never has looked as thin as it did Sunday. This is not about blaming Sanchez for the Eagles' humiliation at Lambeau Field, for a 53-20 loss that represented perhaps the lowest moment of Chip Kelly's 26-game tenure as head coach. Sanchez was just one of many offenders Sunday, and from Kelly's failure to prepare his team for a championship-caliber opponent to a defense that could neither rattle Aaron Rodgers nor cover any of the Packers receivers, there are plenty of places and players who bear responsibility.

GREEN BAY - Bill Davis knew yesterday's game against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers wasn't going to be a picnic. The Eagles defensive coordinator knew there was a pretty good chance his unit was going to get roughed up. But since not showing up at Lambeau Field wasn't really an option, Davis tried to look at the game as a measuring stick, a test, that would gauge the progress of his defense. How far they've come. How far they still have to go. Well, boys, get on your walking shoes.

THE PICK I THINK THE Eagles will score points Sunday, in whatever weather. If I could convince myself they would handle Aaron Rodgers and stop the Packers every now and then, I'd take the Birds to win. But I can't quite get there. I want to. I don't think the Packers, outside of Rodgers, are real special, especially on defense. There will be holes to run through and receivers getting open. But for that to matter enough, the Eagles will have to get the ball and keep it, develop some offensive rhythm.

LeSEAN McCOY says it's all about winning football games, not rushing titles. Says individual goals and achievements rank a distant second to getting a W. He's being truthful. But that doesn't mean he's not as frustrated as hell at the way his sixth NFL season is going. This is a man who ran away with the league rushing title last year; a man who, deep down in his heart, thought a 2,000-yard season was very doable this year. While the Eagles are 7-2, McCoy is averaging just 71.2 rushing yards per game and 3.7 yards per carry.

EAGLES LINEBACKER Casey Matthews got quite a surprise when he sat down to watch his brother Clay and the Green Bay Packers play the Bears Sunday night. "I turned it on and he was stacked at inside linebacker" instead of lined up on the end as a 3-4 outside 'backer/pass rusher, Casey Matthews said yesterday. "I thought it was just the package they were in, but I saw him keep lining up that way. It was funny at first, but he was making plays. " The Packers, last in the NFL against the run coming into the Chicago game, were getting hammered for 153.5 yards per game on the ground.

Mark Sanchez has played in 70 regular-season and postseason games, but never one at Lambeau Field. The Eagles quarterback said Wednesday that the Green Bay Packers' famed stadium is a "bucket list" place to play. The problem for Sanchez and the Eagles leading up to Sunday's game in Green Bay is that it has not been a fun place for opponents to visit this season. The Packers have averaged 41.5 points per game in their four home games, nearly 20 points better than their average on the road.
