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."

Enough of the nonsense about Donovan McNabb. And I'm not just saying this because McNabb-basher Jerry Mondesire, back when he worked for The Inquirer, hung up on me once. (He was on deadline.) Last season, when McNabb was healthy and had T.O. as a receiver, the QB was great. Yes, he faltered in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl -- after being pounded into the ground on successive plays. And, agreed, he messed up some games this year, especially when he tossed a game-winning interception to a Cowboy -- while suffering from a succession of injuries. So could we please quit second-guessing his psyche about his lack of second-guessing Terrell Owens' barbs and Andy Reid's play-calling? Like it or not, wherever his head and his game and his racial self-image have been, he could re-emerge next season in a way you'll never predict.
