Andy Reid may have figured out what his suddenly stagnent Eagles offense may have needed.
A dose of his favorite toy, Chad Hall.
Hall was promoted from the practice squad today to the active roster, making it the second year in the row he has made the leap. To make room for Hall, the Eagles released Jarrad Page, who has seen his playing time decreased significantly since his benching earlier in the season.
"This year was a little different," said Hall. "It was a little tougher. But I've gotten better every week, helping this team anyway I can on scout team. Now I get a chance to help them on Sunday."
Here is video of Hall addressing the promotion.
With Hall back on the roster, it is a safe bet that he will be involved in the game on Sunday night in a large way. Whether it is returning punts, kickoffs, or seeing plays ran for him, Hall should see a similar role to the one he did last year.
As for Page, his tenure in Philadelphia will be remembered more for the tackles he didn't make than the ones he did. Page being gone also means that even once Nate Allen returns, Jaiquawn Jarrett will likely continue to see playing time.

Page will likely hook on with...

According to the team's embattled defensive coordinator, the Philadelphia Eagles aren't struggling because of a lack of hard work. Everyone in Philly is putting in long days, Juan Castillo claims, especially head coach Andy Reid.
"You talk about coach Reid -- let me tell you, that man works 20, 21 hours a day," Castillo told the Philadelphia Daily News. "...
Philadelphia Eagles’ fans didn’t deserve this. After years of deep playoff runs and that one unsuccessful trip to the Super Bowl, this was the year that Andy Reid’s Eagles were going to bring home the Lombardi trophy. After all the money management spent on both sides of the ball during the offseason, this was the year all those championship expectations were supposed to be...

Sometimes I wonder if Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid has ever met the players on his team.
The Eagles, under Andy Reid, have this nasty habit of picking schemes with little to zero regard for the players on the team. Good things happen when you take the opposite approach. That is, look at the personnel you have, and play to their strengths. For a while, the Eagles’ habit...
