The Philadelphia Eagles travel up the New Jersey Turnpike for their last regular season game at Giants Stadium, and in an epic Eagles-Giants battle, win 45-38. Not only do the Eagles sweep the Giants this year, but with the Dallas Cowboys loss earlier in the day, the Eagles wind up alone in first place in the NFC East. All aspects of the team contributed to the victory, and the team showed an enormous amount of character in the face of a tough Giants Offense. Our confidence builds as the regular season approaches the last few weeks, and we can start to see the playoffs in our sights.
What we discussed:
- Explosive Offense kept the Giants Defense guessing
- If Brian Westbrook comes back, a fear is that Andy Reid will revert to an unbalanced Offense again
- Michael Vick is getting more comfortable out there
- Email from Steve asking about the Vick / McNabb change in Offense and how it can confuse Defenses
- Email from KC in Gettysburg, which sparks a conversation of the playoffs are just not enough
- Email from Dennis in Gettysburg, PA bringing up the point of the Eagles D having continued troubles tackling
- Voicemail from DQ in NY, talking about Vick being traded for no better than a 5th round draft pick
- Email from Alex with talk of DeSean Jackson
- Eagles getting hot, gelling, showing balanced play calling… and we are getting sucked in
- Watching the Cowboys self-destruct again is also worth it in December
- If you’re in South Jersey, stop into Swedesboro Stogies for a cigar!
- Luis from Green Fans – The Movie called today and said that the DVD’s start shipping Wednesday morning!
- Thanks to James in North Carolina for this week’s show name suggestion
