No one said it would be easy...week four's game against the Kansas City Chiefs was a battle...and the Philadelphia Eagles did not let up. With the injury list rapidly increasing in size, the Eagles took to the field and were quickly dominated by the Chiefs. However, the "never say die" attitude of the Eagles led them to rally back and refuse to let the game slip away. The game ended with the Eagles on top 37-31...but with even more injuries. Just to name a few, free safety Brian Dawkins will be undergoing an MRI on an ankle sprain he suffered and Paul Grasmanis tore his Achilles tendon and will be out for the remainder of the season. Here's a look at some of the quotes from after the game:

QB Donovan McNabb:
  • on playing with his injury: "Nothing is easy in this game, especially when your body is in a position where you feel like you can't do what you're used to doing."
  • on his team: "I'm willing to do whatever it takes to help this team win games: knowing when to get the ball out in time and being able to put the guys in great positions to be successful."

CB Sheldon Brown:

  • on his interception return for a TD: "It goes back to the time of playing little league football in middle school and high school. You just work hard week in and week out. You prepare during the week, studying film and you recognize something and everything pays off."

TE L.J. Smith:

  • on the mood in the locker room at halftime: "Midway through the second quarter we needed a play and Sheldon made it. We came in at halftime, the guys were fired up because we knew we were a better team than the way we were playing. I think everybody individually took it upon ourselves to go out there and make plays."
