EAGLES CHEERLEADERS: 1000 miles an hour standing still.
Ok, so the Eagles won last night and before I get any grief, here are the cheerleaders as promised. Now with that out of the way, it’s safe to say the Birds are going to drag us kicking and screaming into the last games of the season. This is so typical of the Eagles and why it’s so damned hard being a Philly fan.
The team just about self destructs mid-season because of stupid unprofessional play, only to claw their way back into the running near the end. We should be totally out of it, so we fans can find better things to do with our Sundays for the rest of the season. But no. Like a car wreck, we just have to keep watching lest we miss something. Now there is a chance the Birds could make the playoffs. Unreal.
Last night’s game doesn’t require too much review. They beat up a woeful Cleveland Browns team that they were expected to beat. Fine. It was a Monday night game, but it lacked the hype of a normal Monday night affair. When the Eagles play a worthy opponent like the Giants or Dallas it’s really a lot more fun. It will be interesting to see if the Eagles can pull off a playoff spot. Until we know, the agony continues.
