I couldn't of been the only one thinking it.
First half, ten seconds remaining, the Eagles not yet ready to settle for a field goal. How many of us were sitting there thinking that the Eagles were going to blow this opportunity for points? How many of us were thinking that the Eagles were going to do something stupid and the clock would expire with the Eagles getting zero points? Things ended up working out OK...no touchdown, but a successful field goal attempt.
How sad that with this team, this QB, this coach that our first instinct is for the worst to happen. We have been screwed so often that we have become conditioned to think that a screw-up is inevitable. Is this the sign of a team that is championship caliber? Do you think that Giant fans think this way of Eli and their offense? I don't.
And tell me that same dreadful feeling didn't overcome you again when the Eagles had the ball in the 4th quarter, down by 5 points. How many of us had confidence in Reid and McNabb to lead a 4th quarter come from behind win? Not me. I knew one of them would screw it up. And of course they did not disappoint.
McNabb threw an interception that was thankfully overturned because of a penalty. A second chance, maybe the Eagles can cash in. Reid and his dreadful play calling made sure that didn't happen. I guess Reid missed the first 3 1/2 quarters of the Eagles being unable to run the ball or managed to forget the short yardage debacle at Chicago. We fans didn't because we were again watching the same stupidity.
No worries. Reid said in his press conference that he needs to again do a better job. We can trust him, right?!?
