So the DUUUUUCE has been selected as the Eagles' honorary captain for this weekend's coin toss. My initial reaction was perfect choice.
But then I rubbed a hand on my face, felt the superstitious Andy Reid beard, and I instantly thought bad omen with Duce Staley.
Why have anything that conjures memories of the 2003 NFC Championship Game associated with this season's squad.
The 2003 title was to be a sure thing (like we are also feeling entering this Sunday). We were going to close out the Vet with a bang. We didn't and I am still seeing Blaine Bishop and Joe Jurevicius in my nightmares.
Let's not ruin 2009 with anything 2003. Just make B-Dawk the captain...Do It For Dawkins!
