The Eagles are trying to create balance -- which is a good thing -- but McNabb is still the star. They want the ball in his hands at crunch time. That doesn't mean Duce Staley or Antonio Freeman or Todd Pinkston or James Thrash aren't important to the team. They can make big plays, too. What I like about McNabb is he tries to use them. He uses different ones each week.
Question on the Bears: Should the Bears turn to Chris Chandler or is QB the least of their worries?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
Philadelphia's injuries were to Levon Kirkland (sprained knee), Bobby Taylor (right shoulder contusion) and Freeman (hip contusion). For the Bears. it was Daimon Shelton (ankle sprain). ... Attendance was 54,049. ... Fans booed the Bears' offense in the fourth quarter until their final drive ... McNabb's TD run was his sixth this season, tying his career high set in 2000. He had 50 family members and friends from the Chicago suburbs at the game.
