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.

The Minnesota Vikings are the perfect reality check for an Eagles team that is suddenly a real threat to go to the Super Bowl. Not because the Vikings are an especially daunting opponent. They aren't. In fact, they are a big leaky trash bag full of toxic waste and combustible chemicals, as apt to burst into caustic flame as to fall apart all over everything nice. But just 11 months ago, this hot mess was hot stuff. The Vikings were one awful Brett Favre pass from the Super Bowl.

Kurt Coleman shot through the gap. He hit a startled Ahmad Bradshaw, who dropped like a stone 2 yards behind the line of scrimmage. That forced the Giants to pass, which led to a fumble, which led to the Eagles' first touchdown. None of which happens, perhaps, if the Eagles' seventh-round rookie safety didn't play with the confidence of the second-rounder he replaced. Nate Allen's fine rookie season ended Sunday when he ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee. Allen underwent successful surgery Tuesday.

Trent Cole loves to get after quarterbacks. The Eagles defensive end piles up sacks like DeSean Jackson collects touchdowns. So when Cole was seen chasing after Giants wide receivers on Sunday, it seemed a little unusual and, well, counterproductive. On one play, he was caught covering New York's Derek Hagan and was beaten for an 11-yard reception. When Cole caught up to the receiver and tackled him, the end jumped up and punched the air. It was difficult to discern if he was upset because of the play - and the fact that the Giants were about to go ahead, 17-3 - or if he was just ticked that he had to cover a receiver 55 pounds lighter.
