The Dallas Cowboys got out to a quick 21-0 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles, a nightmare beginning to the rematch of the NFC East rivals. The 24 unanswered points then scored by the Birds in the second and third quarters were a rousing flash of the team we saw on Thanksgiving Day. Then came the final collapse, where Philadelphia ultimately fell 38-27 to Dallas at the Linc.
We waited for Tony Romo to be Tony Romo in December, but it didn’t happen. Instead, he finished the game 22/31 for 265 yards and 3 TDs. No interceptions. Boo. Continue reading ‘Philadelphia Eagles can’t hang on in loss to Dallas Cowboys’
This is what we were most thankful for on Thanksgiving Day: A total beatdown of the Dallas Cowboys by the Philadelphia Eagles. The defense was unstoppable. The offense was on fire. Tony Romo and his team were in meltdown mode. And the Eagles fought their way to #1 in the NFC East. All right in Jerry’s World. And thankfully, the revolution was televised across the land for all to see.
It just doesn’t get any better than that.
We’re all still riding the joyous feeling of victory so let it continue. Here are how Eagles celebrated their big win and shared it with fans on Twitter:

As with any game, there are many important aspects of the Philadelphia Eagles on which to focus this Monday night. But who are we kidding: Tonight’s game against the Carolina Panthers is all about Mark Sanchez.
Every step he takes, every move he makes, we’ll be watching him. Every throw. Every decision. Can Sanchez ably lead the Birds for the six to eight weeks that Nick Foles is expected to be out with a broken collarbone? If so, is he the quarterback on which we should hitch our trailers for an even longer stretch of time? If Sanchez can avoid the turnovers that became an all-too prevalent part of Foles’ performance this season and turn in a series of consistent performances, the answer could be yes. But those are big “ifs”. Sanchez has his own history of turning the ball over to overcome. Since entering the league in 2009, the former USC quarterback has thrown for more interceptions (71) than touchdowns (70) in his career.

QB Trent Edwards
The Philadelphia Eagles rounded out a perfect preseason with their 28-10 win over the New York Jets on Thursday night. That’s all well and good, but we know it’s just the preseason.
Last night’s game had some very real implications for men struggling for a spot on the team’s roster, which must be trimmed from the current 74 down to 53 by 9 pm Friday evening. So who helped their cause on Thursday?
–Trent Edwards: Edwards did it all last night–threw, slid, and and ran. He was 22/32 for 197 yards and 2 touchdowns for a passer rating of 105.9. Edwards also had 36 rushing yards on 4 carries. Continue reading ‘Which 3 Eagles players helped themselves the most in Philadelphia’s preseason finale?’
Eagles v. New York Jets
Radio: WIP 94 FM and 610 AM
The New York Jets are 0-3 in preseason action and, in case you haven’t heard, have yet to score a touchdown. The full-scale circus that has followed the Jets this year will be toned down substantially by the fact that Tim Tebow will not be playing in Thursday night’s game. I see the sadness on your face even as I write this.
The Eagles won’t be playing their starters so why bother to watch this game? In case you’ve forgotten, all NFL teams must have their rosters to 53 by Friday night at 9 pm. While there has already been some movement on Philadelphia’s roster (see below), tonight will secure the futures of several men on this squad, for better or for worse. Continue reading ‘Eagles v. Jets: What to watch (sorry, no Tebow)’
