They're Alive

Yes, the Eagles are back. I sat in the frigid Linc last night, for official confirmation. Rocky himself (Sly Stallone) was on hand for the game, and saw yet another unheralded Philly comeback.

The fans in this town have spent the last week calling for Andy Reid's head, and for Jeff Garcia to be benched in favor of a QB (A.J. Feeley) who's had one semi-good month in his entire career. So it's good to see that Reid has been un-fired, and Garcia un-benched, for the Iggles' playoff run. The finish was quite exciting, as was the communal experience of hundreds of fans screaming "you suck!" at Michael Irvin in the ESPN booth.

Kind of sad that a 6-6 team is currently in line for a playoff spot, but hey, at least they've now equaled last year's win total.

Since you were there, I gotta ask, were the fans really glad when it looked like Garcia might be hurt and Feeley was coming in? Some say the crowd reaction was just in response to something on the jumbo screen...
