I don't like Matt Mosley mainly because he is a Cowboys fan and I am wired to dispise him. With that said some of his articles aren't entirely bad and he seems to leave his homerism out of this latest article about the Eagles recent playoff run
This little nugget interests me ...
Mikell may have hit on why the Eagles and Cardinals find themselves in such an enviable position. They weren't worried about living up to expectations, because most people didn't have any for them as the playoffs approached.
Because I disagree ... the Eagles aren't exceeding expectations they are living up to the expectations we as fans had in preseason that they all but torched throughout this season. They are finally playing like the team we know they are.
As always Dawkins speaks and everyone listens ...
"We have a collective heartbeat, and a collective heartbeat on a team is a very powerful thing."
And I close with ... I love Asante Samuel.
"I was a free agent, and picking teams is kind of hard. But I couldn't have come into a better situation. We have a great defense, a good team, the fans are great and the city is great."
