* Re: What Eagles' early cuts mean (Eagletarian blog, Aug. 30): [Linebacker Everette] Brown should have made this team. Trent Cole stinks; why they are keeping this guy around is nuts. Why they are switching to a 3-4 defense knowing half the guys on this team never played it is crazy, as well. Cole is taking a roster spot from a guy who I think had more sacks in this preseason then Cole had all of last year. We need youth, not age, here. Brown was a beast [Thursday] night even though was against ham and eggers . . . - william20, Philly.com

Jason Babin officially is no longer an Eagle. Tennessee acquired the defensive end after the Eagles declined to match the Titans' offer. Under a right-of-first refusal clause the Eagles put into Babin's contract, they had 1 week to match the offer sheet signed Wednesday. Without the clause, Babin would be an unrestricted free agent because of his 6 years of NFL service. The Titans announced that the Eagles notified the NFL yesterday they would not match the offer. Babin, a first-round draft pick in 2004 out of Western Michigan, has played for Houston, Seattle, Kansas City and, last season, the Eagles.

THE DEPLETED DEFENSIVE LINE: Defensive tackle Antonio Dixon suffered a triceps injury that could keep him out for a while. Trent Cole was on crutches after the game with a calf strain. Ends Juqua Parker and Darryl Tapp still are out. Not a good situation. THOSE FOURTH-QUARTER BLUES: For the third straight week, the Eagles blew a fourth-quarter lead. They have been outscored 36-0 in the fourth quarter the last three games. DEFENDING THE BACKS AND TIGHT ENDS: A seasonlong problem continued as the Niners' running backs and tight ends accounted for 154 of 291 receiving yards.

SOME INTREPID folks were trying to work the gee-despite-the-win-you-were-eliminated-from-playoff-contention angle in the locker room Monday. Of the handful of Eagles available after a brief practice, nobody seemed shocked they weren't going to the postseason. "It felt great to win, especially under the circumstances, with a lot of young guys in, a lot of key players out in key positions," tight end Clay Harbor said. Despite how the question was phrased, Harbor didn't even mention the playoffs.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - One player who won't be seen on the Lehigh University practice fields is Albert Haynesworth, the former Pro Bowler/malcontent who is now a free agent. Haynesworth often is linked to the Eagles because of his close relationship with defensive line coach Jim Washburn, who coached Haynesworth in Tennessee. Even with Mike Patterson sidelined, it didn't sound as if Washburn was pushing for a Haynesworth reunion. "I think he's finished," Washburn said. "His back's degenerative.

The Eagles won the turnover battle for just the fourth time this season. They are 2-2 in those games. Donovan McNabb has thrown just six interceptions in 397 pass attempts this season. His 1.51 percent interception rate is the best of his career. But his 3.78 percent touchdown rate is his lowest since 2003, when he had just 16 touchdown passes in 478 attempts (3.34). With 144 yards from scrimmage against the Cowboys, Brian Westbrook has a league-best 1,896 for the season.
