Eagles Back-ups Lose to Cowboys 14-13

The Eagles preseason squad lost 14-13 to the Cowboys on Sunday. Kevin Kolb looked like Ryan Leaf yesterday in his 4-turnover effort. He ran for his life all day long behind a back-up offensive line and threw three picks and lost a fumble. Then again, anyone would like the biggest draft bust in history behind a terrible line. Demarcus Ware had a field day yesterday looking like Lawrence Taylor as he had 3 sacks and a fumble recovery for a TD. All in all yesterday's game meant nothing and it's understandable for Reid to bench his starters, but to throw Kolb to the wolves like that was a tad harsh. The Eagles take on the Packers next Sunday at 4:15 at The Linc. At least it's not a Sunday night playoff game!
