OK so I’ve taken a pretty lengthy hiatus from posting on the Eagles games this season. No real reason other than they leave me pretty drained — even when they win. But I had to post on tonite’s game.
What in the hell was that? A shut-out? Really?
I choose to believe the Eagles threw that game for strategic reasons. Maybe a new spin on resting starters before the playoffs — Indy benches Peyton Manning so he can rest up and recharge. But we play our starters and just ask them not to exert any real effort… Maybe we didn’t want to give away the real gameplan for next week’s game. Whatever the reason, what happened out there today was downright shameful.
I know there’s a bigger picture here, and finishing the season at 11-5 and snagging a spot in the playoffs are both wonderful things. I just wished we hadn’t lost so badly. I mean, we were picked to lose, yeah. But losing is something altogether different from what we did out on that field today.
No need to dwell on the negative though. I used to let the Eagles’ losses put me in foul moods for the entire week but I refuse to do that anymore. So I’ll just say I’m looking forward to next week! No way do I think Dallas is gonna beat us two weeks in a row. Next Saturday is all about redemption.
LET’S GO BIRDS!!!
