Eagles linebackers vs. Cowboys' RBs Marion Barber and Felix Jones

When you're thinking about going in another direction after 17 weeks of an NFL season, you know you're in trouble. But that's what Eagles coach Andy Reid may do for the rematch with the Cowboys. Hey, why not? The Cowboys' running game gashed the Eagles for 179-yards on Sunday. Outside linebacker Chris Gocong could replace Moise Fokou and 12-year vet Jeremiah Trotter could replace Akeem Jordan. Will Witherspoon should hold down the other spot, but defensive coordinator Sean McDermott has tried six LBs this year. Maybe he should use them all -- at once.
