Words barely can relate the exuberance the Eagles fans felt this past Sunday after erasing a 21-point deficit to the New York Giants.  The Eagles scored 28 unanswered points and found something in them that allowed them to execute one of the best comeback victories in the history of the NFL.  They put themselves firmly in first place in the NFC East with only two games left in the regular season, and now poised for a playoff berth.  It was an amazing victory on all sides of the ball, and they effectively changed the way every team now views the Philadelphia Eagles. No opponent can feel confident in a win, and every Eagles player now has the confidence that they can win every game no matter the circumstance or who they are lining up against.  It is a team of heart now, they believe it, and so do we.

Joining us on this week’s show is Tom McAllister, the author of the book, Bury Me In My Jersey: A Memoir of My Father, Football, and Philly

What we discussed:

  • Eagles beat the New York Giants, 38-31, scoring 28 points in the final eight minutes
  • We go over the negative aspects of the game, meaning the first half and Andy Reid’s no challenge in the third quarter
  • Chuck turned the game off when the Eagles were losing 31-10 and turned it back on at 31-31
  • The Eagles own the Giants, winning six straight games over them
  • Michael Vick seemed to get better, with more stamina, in that fourth quarter
  • Somehow we get comparisons to Donovan McNabb, and talk about how this team is so much better, with a new confidence, without him behind center in Philly
  • We talk about Tom McAllister’s book, his inspirations for it, and what went into it
  • The Eagles take on the Minnesota Vikings this week in a game that was flexed to 8:00

    he’d return it! Haa! Merry Christmas!
