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."

Trotter on his show with WIP's Anthony Gargano earlier this season.

T.O. Central, Part 978
Trotter Holds Out Hope

On his WIP radio show last night, Jeremiah Trotter expressed a view almost no one else has: Many Eagles would be willing to take T.O. back, perhaps even coach Andy Reid:

"We believe T.O.'s a good guy at heart and he can rectify the problem. And if he can rectify the problem, why wouldn't we want T.O. on the team?"

The Eagles linebacker said: "I think it comes down to him talking to Andy and saying, 'Hey coach, I want to come back and I want to do things the right way.' That's it. It's that simple."

T.O. still talks with half of his ex-teammates, Trotter also revealed.

Simple? Yes, Reid did forgive Trotter and welcome him back, even though Trotter had ripped the Eagles on his way out the door as a free agent a few years ago.

But recall that Owens' ouster came after he said the Eagles organization lacked class, and called a team rep a liar. So good luck winning owner Jeff Lurie back, T.O.

Expect more surprises as Friday's grievance hearing here approaches, perhaps even a settlement.
