Eagles' safety Brian Dawkins will miss two to six weeks with a sprained right foot.

Dawkins was one of three defensive starters injured in Monday night's 17-0 season-opening loss to Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay. Cornerback Bobby Taylor also had a sprained foot and defensive end Brandon Whiting strained a hamstring.

Maybe he can miss 3 weeks. We get them in week 4.

He'll be out for the New England game...and Buffalo plays them two weeks later.

If he's still out he'll miss both games.

Start your Patriots, folks. With Dawkins out and Taylor limited at best, the Eagles' secondary will be very vulnerable next week.

and Madden called him the best FS in football

I think the Patriots proved last week that when you play them you don't need a secondary...just linebackers.

Brady through 4 INTs...one to a Lineman and 2 to a Linebacker.

If Dawkins is projected to miss 2 - 6 weeks, he'll miss at least the Patriots game and the following one, but he's hardly going to be full speed vs. the Bills even if he makes it back to play the game.

more on Philly injuries that should make Brady's life of avoiding 4 INTs better - http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-eagles-defense&prov=ap&type=lgns If the real Jimmie Johnson can hold NE to a 20 pts or less, you have to name him the best DC in the NFL

Despite the SuperBowl win, Brady is not a big game QB. I was at the Pats game last year down here and we handled them easily.
We should have won the one in NE too, but lets not get into that.
Dolphins are much better than last year despite the loss. We'll see how good we are when we play the Giants Tennesse and the Eagles. The rest of the schedule isn't easy but those 3 are the top opponents

Don't forget the Bills.

If they come in here and run us...we'll be staring at 1-2 (if we beat New England) and then go on to play the Giants.

Our run defense should do better than they did last week. The Bills will prove to be a one dimensional team against us. That dimension is pretty potent though and can put up 30 pts on a whim and now featuring a defense. I still think Miami will win both, even in December.

I hear Houston is nice in January. I'll be wearing my jersey and rooting for the team
