What Would Buddy Do?
Gravy or 1-4?

Aw man.  That felt depressingly familiar.

I’m trying to focus on how I got to watch three more weeks of Eagles games and not on how the defense played their worst game in months and how Reid and McNabb are now 1-4 in the NFC Championship game.

(I’m actually not as bummed as I expected to be.  I’ll be sure to give it time, though.)

Strangely, I’m not as depressed as I thought I’d be either - but we lost to a quarterback who wears two gloves in the desert…two gloves… in the desert…

Perhaps I’m merely too dumbfounded and confused to be sad.

It was a nice little unexpected run this season, but I can’t get over the 1-4.

The first half counts, you know, guys!

The Eagles had no business being in the playoffs, at all. Tied Cincy, benched McNabb en route to a horrific loss in Baltimore… and then even after everything lined up for a resurgence, they laid an egg in DC.

Only a miraculous aligning of the stars with a Tampa loss and a Houston loss did the Birds get what really was a third chance… and they took it.

The Cowboys / Minny / Giants / Cardinals string of games was extraordinarily exciting, and frankly, unexpected.

Yes, this could have been our year - I felt that way about destiny, or everything clicking… but it wasn’t. Yet, it was a tremendous offseason.

I’m amending my previous statement…

This is no longer gravy. This is crappy anti-gravy; inedible slop.

The Steelers are going to the Super Bowl and they’ll be playing the Cardinals. This could be Dawkins last chance at a title, McNabb’s last chance at redemption, and Reid’s first chance to prove he’s part of the next group of great coaches in the NFL.
