Cold and Windy: Perfect Day For A Playoff Game

weatherreport011009.gif
According to weather.com, the only thing missing weather-wise will be the snow. It's expected to stop a couple of hours before the Eagles and Giants kick off what is the most-important Eagles game since the 2005 Super Bowl.




We all know what's at stake. I'm not going to spend my time trying drum up any more excitement. Let me just put it into perspective as succinctly as I can. Win and they're headed to Arizona to play for a shot at the Super Bowl. Lose and we're all going to spend the next six months listening to Giants "fans," who follow them for about two weeks every season, chirp at as. It really is a fate worse than death.

Injury updates:

  • Shawn Andrews - Out
  • Dan Klecko - Doubtful
  • Jon Runyan - Questionable (but says he'll play no matter what)
  • Brian Westbrook - Probable
  • Quintin Demps - Probable
  • Victor Abiamiri - Probable
  • Stewart Bradley - Probable
  • Brian Dawkins - Probable
  • LJ Smith - Probable
  • Kevin Curtis - Probable
  • Todd Herremans - Probable
I'll give you one key to the game, and then I'm going to sit back and enjoy the day of football. The Eagles need to force Eli Manning to beat them. Brian Dawkins and Quintin Mikell should both be up near the line of scrimmage if necessary. Since Plaxico Burress shot himself, Eli Manning hasn't thrown for over 200 yards in a game. His completion percentage has dropped to 54%, he's thrown 2 TDs and 2 INTs. Make the Giants throw the ball.

It all gets started at 1pm. If you're watching and you need to vent or celebrate, this is the place to do it.

Here is the bad and good news about the Eagles and it pretty much sums up Mcnabbs entire career as an eagle.
You can never count on Mcnabb, but you can never count him out. Ever....
Im glad Manning wont have Burress to bail him out when he throws up one of his desperate 3rd and 15 heaves that Burress always seemed to come down with.

This game.. I've been reading and thinking about this game since the minute Westbrook broke out against the Vikes.

I was watching that game at a friend / co-worker and Giants Fan's house and the minute Westbrook scores we looked at each other and knew it was on. The smack has been talked long and loud all week. It's time for the team to face the Giants and punch their ticket. This game has me very twitchy.

i just needed to vent its halftime........LETS FUCKIN GOOO!!!!!!

game..set...match!!!!

Defense = dominant

Now it's the eagles vs. Kurt Warner in the NFC championship -- and it's 2009?!

I hear Destiny's voice getting louder --we're getting closer to picking her up for our date!

The Giants fans have withered into nothingness.

I went for a nice long walk on the streets of brooklyn with my eagles hat on immediately after the final whistle. Great feeling.

Weather effect always affects games and consequently players.
