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."

"I Think You Pound the Football This Year!"
What?! Bold prediction from ex-Eagle Brian Baldinger, now Fox football analyst. Pointed out on NBC10's Sports Final last night that the Birds now have the two biggest guards in football in Sean Andrews and new draftee Max Jean-Gilles, and a big young center in Jamal Jackson. That signals a likely shift, Baldinger says: Eagles will get a big running back, and take the fight to foes right up the middle. Look for New Orleans to make Antwan Smith available: "He is an animal," says Baldinger. "I think they can become a better football team, and a more powerful football team." You're talking it snowing in hell, retorted host John Clark. "Coaches get smarter," Baldinger said.
