The Philadelphia Eagles...the best team in the NFL

 

Game 6............Oct 12th

Westbrook's miracle in the Meadowland 2 overshadows the Eagles flaws...by Jules Pilla -----October 12th

Thank you , Brian Westbrook. The 84 yard punt return at the end of the game saved us from the depressing abyss of losing to the Giants right after losing to the Cowboys. And saving us from being 2-4. Saving our playoffs hope. And saving us from a depressing week.

Oh, and one more thing it saved us from. Seeing Donovan ( 9-24 for 64 yards, 1 pick) fail to move the team down field for a score again. Is there any question in your mind that the Eagles would have lost the game? I have no doubt in my mind. The Eagles would be 2-4 if not for Westbrook.

It's time. Andy need to make the change. (Reid almost pulls McNabb)Until the thumb is better, Donovan needs to have a seat on the sidelines. Believe me, I'm not a Donavan basher. But it is obvious, it hinders his performance.

But it won't happen. Andy will continue to support his leader. Battling through these ugly wins until his stars comes around. So close your eyes to the low QB rating and endure it. But there is a silver lining on the horizon. It is called J-E-T-S...Jets, Jets Jets. They're up next and the Eagles should waltz past them. They are baaddd. Follow them up with the woeful Falcons and the Eagles are looking at a 3 game winning streak.

The Jets and Falcons are just what Andy and Donovan want and need. Easy opponents. Confidence for Donvan and more passing for Reid.

There were other flaws to ignore. The awful play of the wide receivers. There were all but invisible. And the dropped passes by Thrash had me regurgiating my lunch.

But it was a win. Any win is good. And I really enjoyed the run back by Westbrook. It was nice to scream at the TV in a positive way and see the losing face of Fassel. So enjoy the win but don't be fooled by it. Westbrook saved our butts and maybe our year.
