Eagles v. Cowboys: Hoping to avoid a prime time embarrassment


To state the obvious, the Philadelphia Eagles games are incredibly painful to watch these days. The prime time games have become particularly worrisome, as it’s not just a segment of the country seeing how far the Birds have fallen this season. It’s the entire nation.

While we hope against hope that the Eagles can stop their seven-straight losing streak, particularly at Cowboys Stadium, I’m not sure that any of us who truly believe the Birds can pull it off. Continue reading ‘Eagles v. Cowboys: Hoping to avoid a prime time embarrassment’
