The game-day media packets are full of all sorts of random information. Included in Sunday's wild-card offering was a section called "behind the scenes with Big Red. " It listed, among other things, Andy Reid's favorite flick. After another disappointing playoff loss, after another season where the Eagles got our hopes up once more only to crush them yet again in abject fashion, it's all too fitting that Reid is a fan of The Sting . The title of the film pretty much sums up what Birds fans feel today - and following almost every season.

Quintin Mikell saw it coming. Before the cameras started rolling and the microphones started recording, before the first notes were jotted down, and well before any questions were asked, he told the reporters packed in tight around his NovaCare Complex locker to wait. Mikell turned his back on the media horde - something the cautious would advise against - and paused. Then he put on a hat. The multitoned cap he selected wasn't fancy or expensive, but it was unique. It was stamped with the Eagles' logo, along with "2010 NFC East Division Champions.

If this is the year the Eagles finally win a Super Bowl, the defense will have to make history. That's because no team has won the title after allowing as many points in the regular season as these Eagles, who gave up an average of 23.6 per game. In fact, only one team has even reached the Super Bowl while surrendering as many; the 2008 Cardinals yielded an average of 26.6 per game and made it to the show but lost when they couldn't stop a late Steelers drive. The 2006 Colts gave up an average of 22.5 points per game in the regular season and still took home the title.

Now that Eagles fans have witnessed DeSean Jackson's exclamation point at the end of Miracle at the Meadowlands II, Fourth and 26 - much like the two players who engineered it - has lost a little luster here. But Sunday, when the Eagles and Green Bay Packers meet in an NFL playoff game for the first time since that maddeningly memorable afternoon seven years ago, it will be difficult to overlook the improbable salvation wrought by 74 Double Go. "I just remember being on the sidelines," said safety Quintin Mikell, a rookie that day, Jan. 11, 2004.

Quintin Mikell isn't a hat guy. Yesterday, Mikell held court in front of his locker wearing the black and white cap that proclaimed the Eagles the 2010 NFC East champions. It was a statement: It seems every national talking head on the airwaves is picking the wild-card Packers to win in Philadelphia on Sunday. Sports Illustrated sent out a press release yesterday touting NFL writer Peter King's prediction. A straw poll of venerable Daily News prognosticators revealed a decided Green Bay bias.

Andy Reid was furious. Sitting at a podium Tuesday night after an awful loss that cost the Eagles a shot at a playoff bye, he ripped his team ("terrible"), himself ("pathetic"), and even reporters who showed up late. By Thursday, the team's first day back at practice, the wave of anger had subsided. Reid, his players said, was Reid. "The greatest thing about Coach Reid is you can have the greatest win in the world, or the worst loss," but when the team resumes practice for the next game, "he's the same person," said tight end Brent Celek.

A FEW HOURS OF reflection after the Eagles' despicable loss to the Minnesota Vikings Tuesday night did not soothe the beast, but Andy Reid was a bit more reasoned. In the moments after the Birds' 24-14 loss that locked them into the No. 3 seed in the NFC playoffs, Reid snapped that his team was not "good enough" to rest players for a now meaningless regular season finale against Dallas. Yesterday, however, Reid seemed far more open to the idea that it might be in the Birds' best interest to rest some players against Dallas and get them healthy for the playoffs the following weekend.

There will be no Joe Webb on the road to the Super Bowl. There won't be any Stephen McGee, either. To get to the Super Bowl, the Eagles would have to beat real quarterbacks: guys like Drew Brees, Jay Cutler, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan. They would have to beat teams with everything to play, unlike the Minnesota Vikings, who had nothing to play for. And now, because Webb and the Vikings embarrassed them on national television, to get the Super Bowl the Eagles would have to beat three such teams.

Pathetic. Terrible. Two days after clinching the NFC East with help from the Green Bay Packers, a disgusted Andy Reid used those words to describe a flat, sloppy, 24-14 loss to Minnesota on Tuesday night that cost the Eagles any shot at a first-round playoff bye and that left quarterback Michael Vick limping with a bruised thigh. The Eagles are now locked into the third seed in the NFC and will host a wild-card game Jan. 8 or 9 against the Packers, Giants, or Buccaneers, depending on the outcomes of Sunday's games.
