Our Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants in a classic smash mouth football game up in the swamps of Jersey. The Eagles now move on to the NFC Championship game! The Arizona Cardinals beat the Carolina Panthers, and now host the Eagles in warm Arizona this Sunday. Eagles players, coaches and fans are riding high after this latest victory, and confidence has become high. We talk about all aspects of the Giants game, the upcoming Cardinals game, and everything in between. We’re definitely enjoying this run, and our listeners chime in big this week. Plus we were sent the song Eagles Game Face ’08 by Nidice, and I had to play it on the show… time to get pumped up Eagles Fans!! We’re in the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP! One Team, One City, One Dream… I believe.
