The Philadelphia Eagles made one major change early this week, but don't expect a lot more to come out of the bye.

A source tells CSN Philly's Reuben Frank that Michael Vick will continue to quarterback the team and Marty Mornhinweg will continue to call plays. 

That applies to Week 8, when Philadelphia returns from the bye. Beyond that, nothing's guaranteed. Considering the state of the team, that's probably the way things should be.

On to what else is being talked about in the NFC East. 


Dallas Cowboys

From Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: Bill Callahan supports Jason Garrett as a play-caller. Maybe more importantly, so does Jerry Jones.

From Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News: Martellus Bennett is taking veiled shots at Tony Romo again.


New York Giants

Osi Umenyiora is no longer referring to Robert Griffin III as "Bob," according to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News. Now, it's "Sir." 

From Fred Kerber of the New York Post: Looks like Ahmad Bradshaw is going to tough it out.


Philadelphia Eagles

From PhillyMag.com's Tim McManus: Investigators have concluded that Garrett Reid died of an accidental heroin overdose.

From CSN Philly's Jordan Hall: Donovan McNabb thinks Michael Vick has to play angry.


Washington Redskins

From ESPN.com's Stats & Info department: Robert Griffin III is much more dangerous on scrambles than he is on designed runs.

From Rich Campbell of the Washington Times: Jim Haslett doesn't like when you refer to his defense as one that bends but doesn't break. Sorry about that, Jim.
