There is a lot being written about our Philadelphia Eagles after their Playoff victory over the New York Giants yesterday. From other Eagles bloggers, to news sites, below are some of those that I came across today. All of a sudden there’s respect for the Eagles again. We should have gained that respect back after the win over Dallas, not the win over the Giants. In my humble opinion, the Giants were not the same team that they were when they clinched the NFC East. It was all there, but no one paid attention.
This Eagles team is now playing at the level every fan KNEW they could play at. This is why so many of us fans (including all three of us here on EFC) were calling for Andy Reid’s head earlier in the season. THIS is what we expected from this talented group of players… and Reid changed that.
Programming Note: Because of scheduling conflicts -cough- Todd -cough- we won’t record Episode 49 until Wednesday evening. So look for it late Wednesday or early Thursday morning. I really wanted to do it last night, but getting all three of us together is not all that easy! So please hang in there with us.
If you’ve found some other articles I’ve missed, I’d love to read them. Enter them in a comment for the rest of us.
