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."

You Be the Eagles GM, Part 1 At the Eagles Web site, you'll find detailed plans created by fans about moves the team should make. Then an Eagles rep, usually Dave Spadaro, responds. What's good: You get an overview of the possibilities, learn names of free agents and draft picks. What's not: Ignored are some major front-office issues: underspending, questionable play calling, staleness of "the system," poor clock-management, money-related morale problems, the need to out-improve foes in an increasingly competitive division.
