More than some questionable calls on this list, don’t you think? Dawkins is no longer an Eagle… how does THAT feel? I’m scratching my head, and hoping that they start to make some sense very very soon. So with Andrews coming, that means we’ll say goodbye to Runyan soon as well. Not sure about you, but this is starting out rather odd to me. Hope things improve, because right now, I’m extremely bummed about losing Dawkins.
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.

Show Notes: Episode 32 for Wednesday, September 17, 2008
The Philadelphia Eagles lose a heartbreaker in Irving Texas to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football. In one of the best NFL games I’ve ever watched, critical mistakes cost the Eagles the game, and they fall 41-37. In this show we try to put perspective on the game, how early in the season it is, what went wrong, and what can be done to fix things. Despite the loss, we recognize that the Eagles are truly one of the best teams in the NFL this season, and it will be a fun ride to the end.
What we discussed:
Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Dallas Cowboys, 41-37
We address Donovan McNabb’s fumbled handoff to Brian Westbrook and his inability to run the 2-minute Offense
Sean Considine got burned badly in the Terrell Owens TD reception
Brian Dawkins looked old and slow and definitely not on his game, and it’s both sad and worrisome
