It's Dallas Week, fo' sho', but after looking forward to Eagles football for months, I've still got the happy feeling from a big opening week win.
So here's a not-so-serious fan post for my fellow Eagles fans, and even any visiting cock-a-roaches, here at BGN.
Almost every Eagles-Cowboys game ends up being memorable for some reason. Just off the top of my head, on our side we've got the Lito Sheppard Game, the James Willis game, McNabb's scramble, the Christmas game, 4th & 1 x2 (THEY STOPPED HIM AGAIN!), Westbrook's kneel down, and pickle juice.
And on the other side, I would assume the Roy Williams game, the Tommy Hutton game, the playoff loss to Dallas, and the not-so-successful onside kick are just as memorable to Dallas fans as they are painful to us.
What's your favorite?
Mine is probably one of the few that isn't that memorable: Because I was there, I'll always remember fondly the 36-10 beating put on the 'boys in December 2003 It was an important game -- one that had division title implications. There really weren't any highlights from it -- it was just an efficient, relentless West Cost Offense domination. Tied 10-10 at halftime, Sheldon Brown intercepted Quincy Carter in Dallas territory in the opening minutes of the 3rd quarter, and the rout was on.
Both of the games in 2006 were spectacular, too. I get chills when I watch highlights of Lito's interception, and the Christmas game exceeded all my expectations.
On the negative side, I was at the Roy Williams game in '05, and it's still incomprehensible that they lost that game. I am a McNabb fan and a Reid fan, but
one or both of them had their heads completely up their ass on that play.
