THe only thing you can celebrate is that you made it to the playoffs...for some reason my bungling Cowboys can't figure out how to win late in the season.
Congrats to the Eagles for a sound throuncing of the Boyz...maybe next year!
I'm off to put a paperbag on my head!
All hype huh? They've won 4 of the last 5, McNabb and Westy are healthy, Buckhalter has stepped up, DJAX2 has emerged, but more importantly than that their defense is playing lights out, #3 in the league behind BAL and PIT. Getting past the Vikes at the Metrodome will be a tough task but if they do they'll play the Giants in New York, where they've already won this year. The Eagles also have already beat the Falcons should they meet them. Not sure what game you were watching but your pretty good Cowboys team was completely dismantled on all fronts. I'm thinking the Eagles can do some damage in the playoffs, but your right getting through that first round game at the Metrodome will be tough.
You make fairly good points...still believe they are hyped up, but proof is in the pudding.
McNabb plays better when he's benched for a week, so if Reid can find reason to threaten a bench I'm sure DM will put forth a great effort.
I think their D is suspect...who have they played but a bunch of bungling Cowboys, the Deadskins, Browns, Cardinals (9-7 AND FALLING APART LIKE THE COWBOYS). Yes they beat the Giants, good game! Just not sure they will progress, but as I said...they are in the playoffs we are not! Good luck to the NFC East!
