What Would Buddy Do?
48 hours later…yeah, still pretty mellow about it

Try and think: when was the last time the Eagles’ fanbase had a day as utterly devoid of anxiety as they did today?  One win, no losses, and the Eagles did pretty much everything right in that one game.  At Football Outsiders, the Eagles are #1 in VOA and DAVE (DVOA doesn’t start until the fourth week).  During the offseason and preseason, you don’t really know what you have — and typically the season before doesn’t end well, so you assume you probably need a little more.  Week to week, there’s usually some crappy injury story or bad play or drama at HQ brewing.

But not now.  Now the Eagles are bacon-cheeseburger-flavored ice cream.  And it’s glorious.  Let us all eat it up!

(Seriously, eat it up.  It won’t last long.  Cowboys this week.)

Just a few quick hitters:

We’ll miss ya, big guy.  Hollis Thomas to IR for the Saints today.  Maybe #78 is actually haunted?

All those last callers stole my thunder, but Amen, Rev. Bowen, AMEN!  So I think you can ask about T.O. as a player and a matchup problem, etc.  But to be asking about what you could have done differently three years ago?  Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude.  Beat.  Good for you, Les Bowen.

Humble request.  We’re close to hitting the breaking point on stories about DeSean Jackson’s ego.  Still, this is an exciting new character and he deserves a lengthy introduction with generous details on his backstory.  I’m not saying we have to stop the DeSean Jackson talk, we just need to focus slightly less on reports of his self-confidence.  In the meantime, I’m going to become a fan of DeSean Jackson on Facebook.  It’s what DeSean would want.
