It's the holiday of thanks. If you are an Eagles fan, well it's gonna take some looking to the past to find things to be thankful for. But if you are a Philadelphia sports fan it takes only looking back one month to October.
What awaits the Eagles when they take to the field this Thursday? Reid for one should be thankful that unlike in the NBA, the NFL doesn't announce coaches during pregame introductions. It doesn't take much imagination to think of the reception that would welcome Reid.
If the offense gets the nod during pregame introductions, reminiscing is the key to mustering up some cheers for McNabb.
To put you in that thankful, happy place, think Charles Johnson, James Thrash, and Todd Pinkston. Oh yea, and Freddie too.
Remember how McNabb lead these nobodies to 3 NFC Championship games. Throw in a Super Bowl appearance with T.O. and the past should earn McNabb our cheers. There is no present or future with #5. Just a past, and one hell of a past it was.
McNabb's first incomplete pass should then signal all hell breaking loose in the Linc. I love being a Philly fan!
And if all else fails in bringing out that holiday spirt, just think Phillies. And if you took my advice, you simply look down at the Phillies jersey you are wearing at the Eagles game and it's thanks to the Phillies for making us World F-ing champions.
