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.

Ryans ruptured his Achilles during Sunday’s 31-21 win over the Houston Texans. Since the injury, a number of Eagles players have commented on the poor condition of the field at NRG Stadium, with LeSean McCoy saying it’s the worst on which he’s ever played.

The words are more difficult to come by with each loss. What more is there to say? The nightmare that is the 2012 season for the Philadelphia Eagles continues.
In a season with not much positivity, I can’t bear to write another somber account of yet another Eagles loss. At least not at the moment. There were a few bright spots from the Philadelphia Eagles’ 30-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers to highlight so let’s have a look.
1. They made it a game. This could be both a positive and a negative. We expected a Continue reading ‘3 bright spots from Philadelphia Eagles’ 30-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers’

With each loss, the issues grew more pressing for the Philadelphia Eagles: where was the leadership?
In the first loss following a bye week in the Andy Reid era, the team accomplished the appalling feat of getting worse instead of better.
Where was the leadership? Players hung their heads in shame and vacated the locker room quickly. But there was a strange detachment to the third consecutive loss on the part of Eagles players, it seemed.
LeSean McCoy came out and said what every fan and casual observer alike was thinking. Continue reading ‘Inside the players-only meeting: Will it save the Philadelphia Eagles?’
