The Eagles also axed veteran strength and conditioning coach Mike Wolf.

Eagles fullback Leonard Weaver made first-team All-Pro. Making second-team All-Pro: K David Akers, DE Trent Cole, KR DeSean Jackson and CB Asante Samuel.

To take the necessary step forward, the Eagles have to take a step back.
It's time to make the change at quarterback they've put off since Donovan McNabb sustained back-to-back season-ending injuries in 2005-06.
The cold, hard NFL waits for no man. Not even McNabb, who has served the organization well and then some in 11 seasons. The way the Eagles play football, there isn't enough left in the tank of  McNabb to reach the next level.
The legs are all but gone, which is evident in the increasing number of errant throws, as well as the inability to scramble out of danger.
When once the game came so easily, it's now a struggle.
Football is a game of inches measured in split seconds.
McNabb has lost a couple of split seconds.
He's been getting by on his past and charm just a little too long.
