Eagles Ride Winds to NFC Championship Game

Wet and Mild Playoff Win For Eagles

Okay — so I don't feel like I'm going to throw-up anymore. First off — good job.  Not a great job, but a solid effort, especially after the 1st quarter.  So, some thoughts… Thank God, no black jerseys. How good was that drive by the NYG to open the game?  They never really repeated it,…

Here's a headline I would have put good money against less than a month ago.
