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."

Results Update: After nearly 1,000 voters, the average prediction is up a bit, to between 10 and 11 games. Looking at the choices game by game, a 10-win season would go like this: 6 straight wins, loss to Tampa Bay, 3 straight wins to go 9-1, then 5 straight losses (panic time in Philly!) including 3 in the division, ending with a crucial victory over Atlanta for a 10-6 record. Winning the game in Washington seems to be most popular route to 11 wins, while losing that game along with one to Jacksonville is how prognosticators settle on 9 wins.
