Our Philadelphia Eagles put on an historic display to an amazed football fanbase the world over on Monday Night Football, and defeat the Washington Redskins 59-28.  The Eagles showed poise, maturity, skill and discipline on every side of the ball for a critical NFC East game, and dominated from the first play of the game.  It was truly an exciting game, with twelve touchdowns scored in total, with the Eagles scoring six of their eight in the first half alone.  The Defense dominated as well, not allowing the Redskins to convert a third down the entire game, and despite Donovan McNabb throwing for two touchdowns, the Eagles D intercepted him three times.  But the true star of this game was Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.  Vick, in this game alone, completed his transformation into one of the most dangerous players in the NFL.  From this point forward, all other teams that face the Eagles will have to prepare unlike for any other game they played before. Overall it was an incredible game to watch, and ranks as one of the most impressive Eagles victories in franchise history.

What we discussed:

  • Eagles destroy the Redskins 59-28 in Washington on Monday Night Football
  • So much went right, on all sides of the ball
  • Multiple records were set in the game, Vick was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for the second week in a row, and the Football Hall of Fame requested Vick’s game jersey
  • Michael Vick’s transformation to the player he is now is nothing short of amazing
  • The Eagles Defense shut down many parts of the Redskins Offense, despite the four touchdowns given up
  • We talk about some of the team statistics, thanks to the work of Bleeding Green Nation
  • The Eagles next opponent is just as big, and is for sole first place in the NFC East, at home against the New York Giants
  • Some fantasy football talk
