What Is Early Word?
The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.



About the Host
Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years. His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

Friday Afternoon Followup
Coach Reid won't comment; T.O. apologizes At his midday post-practice news conference, Andy Reid declined to discuss Terrell Owens' notorious remarks of last night, saying the matter would be handled "in-house." Then T.O. spoke, giving the following statement, according to the Eagles' Web site : "I've had an opportunity to talk with the Eagles organization and I have learned that the team does not recognize individual achievements. It has been brought to my attention that I have offended the organization and my teammates. Therefore, I would like to apologize for any derogatory comments toward them."

On his Friday afternoon radio show, T.O. kidded at first, asking to be called "Javier," because "I've been committed to the witness protection program today." He also said, "Of all the interviews that I've done, this is one that I regret." More.

In our T.O. poll, after about 1,000 votes, the top answer was: "I'd cut him" (30 percent). Other votes: "I don't care what he says as long as he catches TDs" (26). "I'd suspend him for his latest remarks" (20 percent). "Scold him and fine him, but don't bench him" (15). "I like his play and his outspokenness" (10). Vote, see latest results.

For the remarks that started it all, see item below.
