Mays Landing resident Kevin Craig has been a Philadelphia Eagles fan for his entire life.

But he doesn't often leave the nest to watch his Birds play.

"I don't miss many games," Craig, a 25-year old drilling company manager, said. "But I don't go anywhere special for them. I like to just order food and watch at my house."

Craig listed some of his favorite Eagles memories as the 2004 team that featured Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens, and Brian Dawkins' hit on Falcons tight end Alge Crumpler.

Craig said he was happy that the Eagles got a win last week, 17-16 over the Cleveland Browns, but that they will have to be better in today's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

"I was really impressed with the defense," Craig said of last Sunday's game. "But I wasn't impressed with the offense at all. (Michael) Vick made some poor decisions. (Today) he needs to calm down and make smarter decisions."

He said he thinks the offense can improve by trying to stretch the field more, and by Vick being more patient when set to pass.

"I think they only took one shot deep in the first game and they scored a touchdown soon after," Craig said. "I'd like to see them throw deep more like they did last year. And also, if the receiver isn't open, Vick should check down instead of forcing the ball to somebody who's covered."

Craig said he expects a defensive battle between the Eagles and Ravens. His prediction is a 24-17 Eagles win with a big game out of running back LeSean McCoy.

"I think the Eagles will be better than last year," Craig said. "I think our defense is better and our offense stayed the same, so that means a few more wins. But a lot of it depends on if Vick can stay healthy and make smart decisions."
