The Day The Eagles Franchise Could Change

We all thought last week's game against the Giants was a big game. It was, but since the Eagles left with an L, this weeks game against the Bengals is HUGE. How do I figure? The Bengals are 1-8. Well just imagine if the Eagles lose to a one win team. Chaos in Eagleville.

I honestly can't see how the Eagles lose today. The stats favor the Eagles in all of the major statistical categories. The Eagles are healthy, the Bengals are not. The Eagles are fighting for a playoff spot, the Bengals are not. But as we all know games aren't played on paper. But again, I don't see how the Eagles lose. And I don't care if it's a pretty win, just WIN!

But if they lose, how does Reid explain this one? If they lose how can the team, the fans believe that this is a playoff team? If they lose, goodbye 2008 season.

If the Eagles lose does it signal the final blow to the Reid era? If the Eagles lose does it signal the final blow to the McNabb era? Let the rebuilding process begin. Why not begin the Kolb era, see what the kid has. Start preparing for the draft and the 2009 season. Philly fans can start their countdown to when pitchers and catchers report.

I told you, a lot of pressure on our Eagles today. I fully believe that a win is guaranteed. But if they don't, remember the date of November 16, 2008.

Well, this is true Monday Morning Quarterbacking (but, then, I guess we need some kind of Quarterbacking), but I think we all saw yesterday how the Eagles could loose to the Bengals.

It hasn't been a full 24 hours yet, but I haven't seen or sensed any change to the Eagles Franchise. Reid is still saying the same stupid things and he still did the same stupid things during the game. Ditto for McNabb, although I think McNabb won the stupidity prize for saying that he didn't know the rules of the game regarding overtime and ties.

So, we go on. The only real changes are with the Eagles fans who are more disillusioned and disheartened then ever and once again resigned to "Wait till next year", or the year after that or the year after that!
