For Ravens defense, mission accomplished

It was great to see the Ravens' defense bounce back with a strong effort against the Eagles, especially after the way they got bounced around by the New York Giants nearly a week ago. But please, let's not get too carried away.

That was the worst Eagles team I've seen in quite a while. Quarterback Donovan McNabb started the season off strong, but he was atrocious, and refuses to make plays outside of the pocket with his legs anymore. Running back Brian Westbrook, bothered by injuries, was not a factor and the Eagles don't have a quality receiver or a quarterback who can get him the ball.

With all that said, the Ravens went out and did what they needed to do. They squashed a really bad Eagles football team at home, especially in the second half. The Ravens did ease some concerns about some of their veteran players running out of gas down the stretch, especially on the defensive side.

Those guys looked pretty fresh to me.
