The Philadelphia Eagles win the NFC East, and take the #3 seed in the NFC for the playoffs. They lose the last two games of the regular season to the Minnesota Vikings in an ugly display of football, and the Dallas Cowboys in a meaningless game. In the Wildcard game, the Eagles host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 4:30pm. Lots of concerns for this game, as the Packers are playing very well, and the Eagles ended on a down note, and quite beat up. Regardless, it’s still another exciting year of Eagles playoffs, and the only team from the East in the playoffs, capping off a surprise and unbelievable regular season. Cannot wait for this game to start!
What we discussed:
Eagles lose to the Vikings and Cowboys to end the regular season. Should we be concerned?

Not a whole lot of excitement being displayed by fans so far, and we talk about whether it’s concern or Eagles fans are used to a playoff team now

The Philadelphia Eagles crush the Carolina Panthers 38-10 in a bittersweet win as we also lose our quarterback Donovan McNabb to a broken rib on a late touchdown run. The Eagles make a lot of moves with some familiar names in the last day in response to McNabb’s injury. Jeff Garcia returns to the Birds, Michael Vick is activated so he can start practicing, and to make room, Guard Shawn Andrews is placed on the IR and Wide Receiver Hank Baskett is cut. An overwhelming news day, and we bring it all to you in typical Green style.
