Might have been last game as Eagle for Westbrook

Philadelphia Daily News - [Full Article]

After what might have been Brian Westbrook's final game in an Eagles uniform, a reporter asked rookie Lesean Mccoy if he thought he would be the team's primary back next season.
"I'm not sure," said McCoy, who has been extremely deferential to Westbrook all season.

Here's a wild guess, kid: You will be.

Westbrook didn't carry the ball once in the horrendous 34-14 wild-card round playoff loss to Dallas. He gathered in one garbage-time pass, rambling 27 yards with it, a brief glimpse of what Westbrook used to do when he was becoming the franchise's all-time top pass-catching running back.

"I thought I would be a little bit more involved [in the offense]. It kind of didn't work out that way tonight with LeSean being in the game more often. It was one of those things, I guess," Westbrook said late Saturday night, although he had hinted in his Wednesday news conference that he expected to be back-burnered in a make-or-break game.
