Days after deciding to let safety/return specialist J.R. Reed go - again - Andy Reid was asked whether he was OK with his depth at the safety position. "I am," the Eagles coach said. It will be interesting to see how Reid feels about that this week. Brian Dawkins left the game in the fourth quarter with what was later called a neck stinger. The Eagles' defensive leader, who only hours before had entertained the crowd with his introductory dance, was down for some time after laying out Todd Yoder during the Redskins' opening drive of the quarter.

Upon further review, the bad news for safety Quintin Mikell wasn't nearly as bad as the Eagles originally thought. Rookie running back Bruce Perry wasn't nearly as fortunate. After initially thinking that Mikell's season was ended by a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during Friday night's loss to the New England Patriots, coach Andy Reid provided a much brighter injury report on the second-year safety after yesterday's morning practice at the NovaCare Complex.

ST. LOUIS - Things hardly could have been going better for Rams safety Quintin Mikell. He clearly was stung by the Eagles' lack of interest in re-signing him after 2010, when the led the locker room and went to his first Pro Bowl. He landed in St. Louis with a 4-year, $28 million contract - a deal the Eagles never would have considered - and found himself playing his first game against the team that nurtured him for 8 years. And everything was going right . . . before a 31-13 loss.

THE DAILY NEWS Eagles fan panel was up into the wee hours after Sunday night's victory over San Francisco. Here is a sampling of what the members had to say: I hope the Eagles' jet is warmed up and ready to go out of San Francisco, because they are definitely sneaking out of town with a win. In my opinion, if it were not for the turnovers they would have been losers Sunday night. Granted LeSean McCoy had a good game and Kolb was workmanlike, the defense saved themselves with the turnovers.

The New York Giants were ready to prove themselves, salvage a season, and help rookie quarterback Eli Manning live up to the hype. One play by safety Quintin Mikell obliterated all those hopes. His second-quarter end-zone interception - the first of his two-year career - changed the course of the game, helping the Eagles clinch the NFC East with a 27-6 win yesterday. The Giants were trailing by 7-6, and Manning had just thrown a 52-yard bomb that had New York fans comparing him to big brother Peyton, taking his team to the Eagles' 3-yard line.

Even with signs of optimism coming from not-so-secret confidential meetings between the NFL and the former NFLPA, this continues to be one of the most trying NFL offseasons in league history. And for free agents like Quintin Mikell, it has been nothing short of a test of patience. With player movement on hold, Mikell is among the hundreds of free-agents-to-be who are not only waiting to find out when they will get back on the field, but for which team. As the weeks and months continue to pass since the NFL locked its doors, Mikell has trained himself to think not of the uncertainty that dominates his life, but to simply let things play out as they will.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game. Here's how things panned out last night: 1. Making Campbell Soup: Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell was benched in the second half last week, but started last night. He's protected by a wobbly offensive line missing two of its best blockers, left tackle Chris Samuels and right guard Randy Thomas. The Eagles sacked Campbell six times for 38 yards and intercepted him once.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game: Here is how things panned out yesterday: 1. Defending Giants' ground game: Since getting gashed for 219 rushing yards by the Giants in Week 10, the Eagles' defense has stuffed the run better than anybody in the league. Yesterday, Brandon Jacobs gained 92 yards on 19 carries (4.8 yards-per-carry average) but was stopped on a critical fourth-and-2 in the fourth quarter.
