SMITH'S ROLE MAY BE DIMINISHING

L.J. Smith at 75 percent can help the Eagles win games. The way rookie TE Brent Celek and veteran TE Matt Schobel are playing, however, the Eagles don't seem to need Smith at 75 percent. And that's not necessarily a good thing for Smith, slowed by a groin injury and playing out the last year of his contract. Make no mistake, Smith's first priority is to help the Eagles win. If that means giving snaps to Celek or Schobel, Smith would do so. At the same time Smith knows he has make it clear the Eagles can count on him. In short he has to get healthy and remain healthy. Only then can Smith re-establish himself as a vertical threat capable of opening up the middle of the field.

Bob,
Love the blog and its prominent location on the Web site! Only took seven minutes to find it. I would love to see a feature on Bonnie Grant, Derek Boyko and all the superstars in the Eagles P.R. office. Maybe a people poll question like: If you had to escape a fire at the Linc, would you risk an elevator ride or test your luck on the poorly-constructed Pepsi Ramp?
I would also be interesting to see "Where are they now?" features on Anthony Toney, Quentin Caver and, obviously, Robert Drummond.
Thanks and keep up the good work!
