Well, yesterday’s NFC Championship Game was a little hard to swallow. The Philadelphia Eagles’ luck finally ran out with a score of 32-25, losing to the… Arizona. Cardinals. Yup, that’s not a misprint.
I’ve been an Eagles fan all my life and I’ve watched almost every big playoff upset of the last 15 years. Here’re my thoughts: Donovan McNabb played a hell of a game. We weren’t beaten to the point of screaming “Mercy!”, as it’s been in the past. It was a hard-fought to the end, and that’s the consolation of this loss – nobody rolled over and played dead.
Now, there’s the obvious question: “What’s next for McNabb?” Will he stay or will he go? My guess: the Era of #5 is not over yet. This game may not have ended the way I wanted, but Donovan McNabb has proven that he’s still got what it takes.
Thanks for the ’08 memories, Donovan. Hope to see you in August.
