Reid: Good Way To Start Season

Andy Reid addressed the media after the Eagles' 31-13 win over the St. Louis Rams. On the injury front, defensive end Darryl Tapp left the game with a pectoral strain and linebacker Akeem Jordan sprained his right shoulder in the first quarter and did not return. Both players will undergo MRIs tomorrow.

Coach Reid noted that despite the fact that the Eagles won handily, there were a number of areas in which they could have been better. Specifically, he pointed to two dropped passes by wide receiver DeSean Jackson that would have likely resulted in touchdowns.

"Those kind of plays just rip your heart off," said Reid. "We were just a hair off on those two."

Reid said that he was pleased to see that the team improved throughout the game, especially on the defensive side of the ball and along the offensive line.

"The Rams brought more than we could handle early," admitted the 13-year head coach. "We made the adjustments we needed to make, and I think we were really able to move the ball well down the stretch."
