Quick hits...the Eagles edition

David Akers misses two consecutive 49-yard field-goal attempts. And it was inside. Which way was the air conditioner blowing?

It was very clear that Donovan McNabb had no intention of running for positive yards. He had happy feet, but couldn't seem to get them in a forward gear.

Falcons corner DeAngelo Hall may have earned a Pro Bowl spot in only game. That's what T.O. can do for you.

Whether Jeremiah Trotter should have been thrown out is not the question. He never should have put himself in that position in first place. Just another show in the No-Ring Circus.

And if you want a Trotter medallion for your collection, they are availble today. Good timing, huh?

Looking at Michael Vick's numbers, you would not be intimidated. Watching him on the field is a different story. He commands respect.

The chink in Andy Reid's armor? Opening games. He is 2-5 in the first game of the season since taking over in 1999.

Word is Donovan's chest feels a lot worse today than it did last night.

If I told you the Eagles defense would hold the Falcons to 14 points, you would have thought the Eagles won the game. So, don't blame this one on the defense.

What was in Brian Dawkins intravenous feeding? He came back after the IV and made two huge plays. Maybe Donovan should have tried it.
