The Eagles did what they had to do, and that was beat a team they were supposed to beat. While there are certainly no freebies in the NFL, these are the games you have to win.
Kolb made us feel a little more comfortable in the event McNabb should need more time to heal. But with a much needed bye week upcoming, the troops should be all healed up and ready to prey on Tampa and Oakland, before we head into a tough three week stretch against the NFC East.
I was happy to see Maclin and McCoy continue their development. With D. Jackson already on the verge of greatness and Celek playing like a Pro Bowler, our skill players look mighty promising now and for the future. Maclin and McCoy are only 21, DJack is 22, and Celek is 24. Thats scary when you consider that none of these guys have even hit their primes yet.
Elsewhere in the league.....
The Steelers might be in some trouble, even though its still early. You can really see how much Polamalu means to that defense.
Kudos to the Lions and their city. Thats gotta be one hell of a monkey to have off your back. I hope us Philly fans never have to go through that.....we might kill each other.
As I watched on ESPN Greg Lewis hauling in that incredible TD, did anyone else here say to themselves that if he were still in Philly, he would've never made that play????
