Around the NFC East: Cortez Cut, Eli's Coming

Parcells fires another kicker, the Eagles might get theirs back, and the Giants praise their young QB.

INSIDE SLANT

Jose Cortez only missed one field goal of under 40 yards through the first seven games.

Apparently, it was one too many.

Cortez, who missed a 29-yarder in Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Seahawks, was released on Monday. He was placed by Shaun Suisham, who had been a member of the team's practice squad before being released last week.

The snap was high on Sunday, but holder Tony Romo got the ball down in time. Cortez said he should have made the kick. Cowboys coach Bill Parcells felt the same way. In the end, he said Cortez had been shaky for the past few weeks in practice and in games.

With the Cowboys playing so many close games, he needed to find a kicker he can trust and rely on.

"You know he settled up there pretty good for a little while, but then about a week ago he wasn't too good in practice and he was terrible in pre-game warm-up," Parcells said. "There were just too many erratic things. There were too many problems."

NOTES, QUOTES

Two weeks ago Cowboys receiver Keyshawn Johnson and quarterback Drew Bledsoe got into it on the sideline of a game. On Sunday, there was altercation between coach Bill Parcells and receivers coach Todd Haley.

Parcells gave Haley a two-fisted shove in effort to stop him from berating the officials following a controversial call.

"We got a memorandum from the league about conduct toward officials," Parcells said. "I spent a lot of time reading this to the team, and talking to them about not... first of all, don't touch the officials. There was a player fined for doing that. Then there were two other players ejected, fined and penalized for abusive language and berating the officials. I told my team and my coaches I don't want that. I'll be the one that talks to the officials. I told them to stop, and he didn't. So we had to have a little talk with him."

Cowboys coach Bill Parcells came into the Seahawks game worried about Torrin Tucker taking over for the injured Flozell Adams at left tackle. He left it with continued concerns about rookie right tackle Rob Pettiti, who gave up two sacks, two quarterback pressures and had a holding call while trying to block Seattle defensive end Bryce Fisher.

"I gave up a couple of sacks and that hurt us," Petitti said. "I've got to play better, do a better job and not give up any sacks."

WR Peerless Price saw his first significant playing time of the season in Sunday's game. The wide receiver caught one pass for 19 yards, returned five punts and picked up 9 yards on a reverse in the Cowboys' only touchdown drive. Parcells said he role will increase in the coming weeks.

"It was important to get the timing back," Price said. "Returning punts was new because I hadn't done it in a while."

PLAYER PERSONNEL NOTES

C Al Johnson took the blame for what was the fifth fumbled snap exchange of the season between him and quarterback Drew Bledsoe in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Johnson said the ball was wet because of the rain and it just slipped out of his hands on the snap.

LB Dat Nguyen missed his third straight game with a "stinger". But coach Bill Parcells he will be ready for the Cardinals game. Of course, the Cowboys thought Nguyen would be ready for the Seahawks. He practiced all last week and was upgraded to probable. But in the end, Parcells didn't feel Nguyen was mentally ready to play, so he held him out.

RB Julius Jones missed his second straight game with a sprained ankle. The Cowboys could hold Jones out another week. With a bye Nov. 6, it will give him that much more time to be 100 percent for the Eagles game to start the second half of the season.

STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL

REPORT CARD VS. SEAHAWKS

PASSING OFFENSE: D Drew Bledsoe had his worst game with 136 yards and two interceptions. He didn't get much help with a conservative game plan and poor pass protection. He was sacked four times.

RUSHING OFFENSE: B The Cowboys totaled 164 yards on the ground without Julius Jones. Marion Barber had 22 carries for 95 yards. They controlled the ball, but didn't run well enough in the red zone.

PASS DEFENSE: B The Cowboys harassed Matt Hasselbeck for much of the game, intercepting him twice and limiting him to 121 yards passing through three quarters. Hasselbeck completed four of four passes for 58 yards on the final drive. It was also aided by a pass interference penalty on Aaron Glenn.

RUSH DEFENSE: A League-leading rusher Shaun Alexander was held to 61 yards on 21 carries. Credit strong line play up front and linebacker pursuit from Bradie James, Demarcus Ware and Scott Fujita.

SPECIAL TEAMS: D Jose Cortez' missed field goal can partially be blamed on a high snap. J.P. Ladouceur also had a bad snap on a punt. Tyson Thompson nearly sparked the Cowboys to victory with a 39-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter.

COACHING: C The Cowboys played not to lose on offense, and it backfired as they dropped out of first place in the NFC East. They were denied their first three-game winning streak since 2003.

NEW YORK GIANTS

===============

INSIDE SLANT

The maturation of quarterback Eli Manning appears to be on a fast track, and Sunday's miraculous victory over the Denver Broncos is just another bookmark in the emergence of a soon-to-be-star.

Manning, who hasn't completed a full season as a starter, took the New York Giants to a dramatic fourth quarter victory over the Broncos, who were 5-1 and on a five-game winning streak. He did it by directing two touchdown drives in the final quarter, capping the comeback with a 2-yard scoring pass to veteran wide receiver Amani Toomer with 00:05 showing on the scoreboard.

The 24-23 victory moved the Giants to 4-2 and into a three-way tie for first place in the NFC East with Washington and Philadelphia. Dallas, which had been the leader, fell to "last" with a loss to Seattle and a record of 4-3.

"He is so calm and poised in the locker room it's hard to believe how young he is," Toomer said. "He just tells us to calm down, that it's going to be fine and that we are going to score what we need to score. It's amazing."

Defensive end Michael Strahan, a 13-year veteran, is equally impressed.

"He holds the huddle together, the guys listen to him, even the older guys, and I don't think I have ever seen a young guy have this kind of control," he said. "And what he did with Amani made me very happy. Amani is a veteran, and no matter that he hasn't been as effective as he once was, he is crucial to our team. I tell him every week that he's our goat."

But in this case, you have to spell it 'G.O.A.T.', because it stands for 'Greatest of All Time'."

Strahan smiled. "Yeah, look at the team records. He holds almost all the receiving records," he said. "We need him and this game proved that."

NOTES, QUOTES

WR Amani Toomer showed his poise and experience in the final play that won the game. "I went in motion (from his slot position), then planted the cornerback on the sideline and cut across," he said. "I saw the middle linebacker (Al Wilson) was dropped deep, so I went in front of him. Eli threw the perfect pass; only I could catch it or it would be incomplete."

RB Tiki Barber (19 carries, 86 yards), said it was one of just a handful of comebacks that stuck in his mind as special. "You don't forget games like this one," he said. "We seem to be on a roll, and Elisha (Manning; he is always formal) is just playing out of sight."

LG David Diehl, who has started every game since becoming the team's fifth round pick in 2003, smiled happily and explained that he was 2-1 this weekend. Huh? "I'm from Chicago," he said, "and I went to (the University of) Illinois, so my college got killed by Penn State (63-10), but my White Sox won the first game of the World Series, and now this amazing comeback."

PLAYER PERSONNEL NOTES

LB Carlos Emmons was awaiting the results of an MRI on Monday after leaving Sunday's game with a pectoral injury. Coach Tom Coughlin said, "We are waiting to see," when asked if the muscle was torn. Coughlin said the injury happened when Emmons extended to make a tackle, missed and had his arms "ripped through."

WR Plaxico Burress was having his right shoulder checked out after injuring it in the final two minutes of Sunday's game, coach Tom Coughlin said. "He came out and went back in and finished the game. But, we're running all the tests on that," Coughlin said Monday. "He's sore today."

WR Amani Toomer caught a season-high eight catches Sunday, including the game winner in the final seconds of the game. It was his first game with more than four receptions all season as he has taken a supporting roll to WR Plaxico Burress and TE Jeremy Shockey. "It was hard, but it's hard to be upset when you're winning," Toomer said of his diminished role. "Our team was winning, we were doing well. Plax was having great success and you can't really be upset about somebody else doing well. You just wait for the flow of the offense, and hopefully now that I've made some plays, and we've both made plays together, I think that's how the whole team wanted to use us both together with Shockey and Tiki (Barber) as well."

QB Eli Manning has been praised for his poise in leading the Giants from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to win Sunday's game. "He certainly is a guy who keeps pretty much everything in perspective and when he comes to the sideline, he has good information," coach Tom Coughlin said. "He does have the ability to, as I said last week, to put some of the bad things behind him and go onto the next play and make the next play the most important play. I think he can pass that onto his teammates in critical situations where the pressure is on to have to perform in order to win. His teammates can take strength from the fact that he is poised, he is calm, and he is under control."

DE Justin Tuck continues to receive increased playing time, something coach Tom Coughlin said has simply been earned and helps keep the entire line fresh. "We like to play we like to try and stay fresh and he was able to come in and make a couple of hard plays and provide solid pass rush," Coughlin said. "We do want to continue to try to utilize him."

STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL

REPORT CARD VS. BRONCOS

PASSING OFFENSE: B For three quarters, QB Eli Manning was just ordinary and at times looked fooled by the ever-shifting Denver defense. Then he snapped to attention in the fourth quarter, perhaps fueled by a decision to simplify the offense, and drilled the Broncos every time he had a key play. No pass was more critical to the final TD than a 24-yarder to TE Jeremy Shockey on third-and-10, which brought the Giants to the Denver 8-yard line. Toomer caught eight passes for 62 yards. WR Plaxico Burress had six for 84 yards and an 18-yard TD catch. RB Tiki Barber had six "escape hatch" receptions for 24 yards, while Shockey caught three for 44. The O-line did not allow Manning to be sacked.

RUSHING OFFENSE: B-minus RB Tiki Barber's contributions to the Giants remain myriad. He gained 86 yards on 19 carries. He caught six passes for 24 yards. He scored once on a 4-yard run. And on the final TD pass to WR Amani Toomer that won the game, he showed his skills in blitz-pickup by shielding QB Eli Manning from on-rushing SS Nick Ferguson to make the play happen. Barber had all the rushing carries except for an early reverse by WR Tim Carter that gained 11 yards. The O-line blocked better than fair for the run but it was some of the blocking a few yards downfield that broke down and cost Tiki a few longer gains.

PASS DEFENSE: C-plus The Broncos completed 18 of 29 passes for 194 yards, which is acceptable, but half their 20 first downs were gained by passing. Jake Plummer spread it around, as six different receivers accounted for the 18 completions. He did throw only one TD pass, however, a 4-yarder to FB Kyle Johnson. The Giants managed zero sacks against the Broncos.

RUSH DEFENSE: C-minus RB Mike Anderson was allowed 120 yards in 24 carries, an unacceptable 5.0 per rush, while his backup, Tatum Bell, added 60 yards in eight carries. There were too many long gains and several missed tackles. MLB Antonio Pierce had 13 tackles high for both teams but also was guilty of misses. The Denver O-line, which has a unique blocking scheme, opened up too many mis-direction lanes, often at the expense of Pierce and the two DTs, William Joseph and Kendrick Clancy.

SPECIAL TEAMS: B P Jeff Feagles was at his most effective, kicking four times for a 46.0 average and a 41.5 net. He also placed two inside the 20. K Jay Feely still hasn't missed in 2005, adding a 52-yard FG and three PAT attempts. He is now 11-for-11 on FGs and has made 20 consecutive extra points. Willie Ponder returned four kickoffs for 124 yards (31.0 per). Kick coverage was good; Darrent Williams managed to take two punts back for two yards and two kickoffs for 49 yards.

COACHING: C A difficult dilemma here. What grade do you give the coaches for managing a weak game through three quarters and then suddenly finding the right calls in the fourth quarter? Some of defensive coordinator Tim Lewis' schemes are getting tired and stale, and the Broncos capitalized big time. Offensive coordinator John Hufnagel has become equally predictable. The decision not to use rookie RB Brandon Jacobs, if only for half a dozen running plays, is still mysterious. But the call on the winning TD pass to Toomer was clever and that should be applauded.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

===================

INSIDE SLANT

Eagles head coach Andy Reid said Monday there is a possibility that kicker David Akers could return for Sunday's road game in Denver against the Broncos.

Akers, one of the league's top kickers, has missed the last three games after tearing his right hamstring. Todd France has replaced him and has made 6 of his 7 field goal attempts, including two Sunday in the Eagles' 20-7 win over San Diego.

"We'll see how David is this week," Reid said. "If not this week, then (he'll return) probably next week (against Washington), I think. Within the next few weeks here, he should be able to get back in there."

Akers initially strained his hamstring in Week 2 against the 49ers, then tore it the next week against Oakland on the opening kickoff when he tried to return too soon.

Akers has been examined by an unnamed doctor that Reid says is one of the country's best hamstring specialists. He said the doctor will be consulted before Akers tries to return.

"You bank on what the doctor says," he said. "We're in touch with what's supposed to be the best guy in the country. We're going to listen to him and see how David feels and go from there."

France has done well on field goals. While his kickoffs haven't been particularly deep, he's gotten pretty good hang time on them, which has allowed his coverage team to get downfield.

"Todd's done a nice job," Reid said.

NOTES, QUOTES

After giving up a combined 311 rushing yards to the Chiefs and Cowboys in their previous two games, the Eagles defense held Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson to a career-low 7 yards on 17 carries in Sunday's 20-17 Eagles win. "We went into the game with a chip on our shoulder," free safety Brian Dawkins said. "We were hearing how much we can't stop the run, and how this game was going to be no different than any other as far as him running for 200-plus yards probably against us. You get tired of hearing that. You get tired of hearing what you can't do. We went out and showed what we could (do)."

Through the first six games, 292 of the Eagles' 383 offensive plays have been pass plays. They had just one rushing first down against the Chargers and none in their previous game against the Cowboys. They've got a total of 20 rushing first downs in six games.

PLAYER PERSONNEL NOTES

K David Akers, who has missed the last three games with a torn hamstring, could return either this week against Denver or next week against Washington, according to head coach Andy Reid.

K Todd France has made 6 of 7 field goal attempts since replacing injured David Akers. But with Akers expected to return sometime in the next couple of weeks, his days as an Eagles probably are numbered.

RB Ryan Moats, who was activated for the first time Sunday and returned kickoffs, suffered a concussion in the game. While he'll probably be healthy enough to play this week, it's uncertain whether he will. He fumbled both of his kickoff return attempts.

LB Jason Short missed Sunday's game with a high ankle sprain. He'll likely be sidelined for at least a couple of more weeks.

TE Stephen Spach suffered a lower leg contusion Sunday against the Chargers. Spach, the club's No. 2 tight end, got his most extensive playing time of the season as the Eagles frequently went with an extra tight end to protect injured QB Donovan McNabb.

STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL

REPORT CARD V. CHARGERS

PASS OFFENSE: D Donovan McNabb's day was marred by inaccuracy and poor decisions, including a couple in the first half that cost the Eagles two scoring chances. Unable to throw the deep ball because of his sports hernia, he tried dinking and dunking, and averaged just 5.3 yards per attempt on a season-high 54 attempts.

RUSH OFFENSE: F The Eagles again made almost no attempt to run the ball. Running back Brian Westbrook had just 10 carries for 25 yards.

PASS DEFENSE: B-plus The Eagles blitzed early and often and pressured Drew Brees into 2 interceptions and sacked him 3 times. While they gave up two passing TDs, they did a good job of shutting down TE Antonio Gates and RB LaDainian Tomlinson.

RUN DEFENSE: A-plus The Eagles took away the edges from LaDainian Tomlinson and funneled him inside, where the linebackers helped hold him to a career-low 7 rushing yards.

SPECIAL TEAMS: A-minus Quentin Mikell blocked a Nate Kaeding field goal attempt with a minute and a half left and Matt Ware returned it 65 yards for the game-winning touchdown. Coverage units did a solid job after two shaky games.

COACHING: C Jim Johnson devised a brilliant defensive game plan to shut down LaDainian Tomlinson, but Andy Reid continues to ignore the run and let his injured quarterback throw 50-plus times per game.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

===================

INSIDE SLANT

Eagles head coach Andy Reid said Monday there is a possibility that kicker David Akers could return for Sunday's road game in Denver against the Broncos.

Akers, one of the league's top kickers, has missed the last three games after tearing his right hamstring. Todd France has replaced him and has made 6 of his 7 field goal attempts, including two Sunday in the Eagles' 20-7 win over San Diego.

"We'll see how David is this week," Reid said. "If not this week, then (he'll return) probably next week (against Washington), I think. Within the next few weeks here, he should be able to get back in there."

Akers initially strained his hamstring in Week 2 against the 49ers, then tore it the next week against Oakland on the opening kickoff when he tried to return too soon.

Akers has been examined by an unnamed doctor that Reid says is one of the country's best hamstring specialists. He said the doctor will be consulted before Akers tries to return.

"You bank on what the doctor says," he said. "We're in touch with what's supposed to be the best guy in the country. We're going to listen to him and see how David feels and go from there."

France has done well on field goals. While his kickoffs haven't been particularly deep, he's gotten pretty good hang time on them, which has allowed his coverage team to get downfield.

"Todd's done a nice job," Reid said.

NOTES, QUOTES

After giving up a combined 311 rushing yards to the Chiefs and Cowboys in their previous two games, the Eagles defense held Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson to a career-low 7 yards on 17 carries in Sunday's 20-17 Eagles win. "We went into the game with a chip on our shoulder," free safety Brian Dawkins said. "We were hearing how much we can't stop the run, and how this game was going to be no different than any other as far as him running for 200-plus yards probably against us. You get tired of hearing that. You get tired of hearing what you can't do. We went out and showed what we could (do)."

Through the first six games, 292 of the Eagles' 383 offensive plays have been pass plays. They had just one rushing first down against the Chargers and none in their previous game against the Cowboys. They've got a total of 20 rushing first downs in six games.

PLAYER PERSONNEL NOTES

K David Akers, who has missed the last three games with a torn hamstring, could return either this week against Denver or next week against Washington, according to head coach Andy Reid.

K Todd France has made 6 of 7 field goal attempts since replacing injured David Akers. But with Akers expected to return sometime in the next couple of weeks, his days as an Eagles probably are numbered.

RB Ryan Moats, who was activated for the first time Sunday and returned kickoffs, suffered a concussion in the game. While he'll probably be healthy enough to play this week, it's uncertain whether he will. He fumbled both of his kickoff return attempts.

LB Jason Short missed Sunday's game with a high ankle sprain. He'll likely be sidelined for at least a couple of more weeks.

TE Stephen Spach suffered a lower leg contusion Sunday against the Chargers. Spach, the club's No. 2 tight end, got his most extensive playing time of the season as the Eagles frequently went with an extra tight end to protect injured QB Donovan McNabb.

STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL

REPORT CARD V. CHARGERS

PASS OFFENSE: D Donovan McNabb's day was marred by inaccuracy and poor decisions, including a couple in the first half that cost the Eagles two scoring chances. Unable to throw the deep ball because of his sports hernia, he tried dinking and dunking, and averaged just 5.3 yards per attempt on a season-high 54 attempts.

RUSH OFFENSE: F The Eagles again made almost no attempt to run the ball. Running back Brian Westbrook had just 10 carries for 25 yards.

PASS DEFENSE: B-plus The Eagles blitzed early and often and pressured Drew Brees into 2 interceptions and sacked him 3 times. While they gave up two passing TDs, they did a good job of shutting down TE Antonio Gates and RB LaDainian Tomlinson.

RUN DEFENSE: A-plus The Eagles took away the edges from LaDainian Tomlinson and funneled him inside, where the linebackers helped hold him to a career-low 7 rushing yards.

SPECIAL TEAMS: A-minus Quentin Mikell blocked a Nate Kaeding field goal attempt with a minute and a half left and Matt Ware returned it 65 yards for the game-winning touchdown. Coverage units did a solid job after two shaky games.

COACHING: C Jim Johnson devised a brilliant defensive game plan to shut down LaDainian Tomlinson, but Andy Reid continues to ignore the run and let his injured quarterback throw 50-plus times per game.
