Andy Reid announced after a skin-of-your teeth win against Cleveland in week 1 that wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has a hip pointer. Maclin caught 7 passes Sunday for 96 yards and was the Eagles best receiver. The fact that he was even able to play the whole game was a small victory. Maclin got roughed up on two plays, and was shaken up both times. He sat out a down after the first hit, then returned and took another blow.

Because of injuries to Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, the Eagles made a roster move to add some depth. The Eagles finally parted ways with second round pick Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett in order to add recently cut receiver Mardy Gilyard. Jarrett was supposed to be the man that took Brian Dawkins place, and Andy Reid even compared Jarrett to Dawkins after drafting him. The problem was that Jarrett never lived up to the hype. He is an Eagle no longer. With Gilyard back in the fold, you have to wonder if Maclin will play on Sunday, though Andy Reid denied that Maclin is out for the game.

A major complaint among Eagles fans after Sunday’s lackluster performance was the play selection. While the Eagles won and this particular complaint is not a new one, it is still a valid one. While LeSean McCoy (20 carries, 110 yards) was ripping off solid runs almost every time he touched the ball and Michael Vick struggled putting the ball in the air, the Eagles still threw the ball an alarming 56 times while running only 20.

The Baltimore Ravens are the Eagles next opponent on Sunday at the Linc. The Ravns were impressive in a Monday Night Football drubbing of the Cincinnati Bengals. The Ravens won 44-17. The Eagles won 17-16 over the lowly Browns. It was interesting to see that the betting line on the game dropped a half point. Instead of the Eagles giving a FG, which would be standard for a home team, they are now only giving 2.5. It may be a small movement on the line, but it’s significant to see how the Ravens convincing win affected it.
