JDubs Writes to a 'Boys Fan

"First off, sorry Boys. Sorry we had to rain on your parade and keep you from almost certain homefield advantage thru-out the playoffs. Tough titties, you'll still wrap it up in the next 2 weeks, and this was our super bowl. It had the feel, for eagles fans at least, of a mid-90s eagles-cowboys game. Remember those days, when you guys used to dominiate us, when Emmitt got half his career rushing totals just off us, when there was nothing we could do to stop a 3rd and 3 or 3rd and 4, 'cos you know Emmitt would pick up 5 yards or they'd just dump it off to Novacek. (And Moose wonders why Ealges fans are just starting to warm up to him and many still issue him death threats when he covers our games...) When we had a turntable of scrub QBs going thru the rotations and gettin decimated by your D. That's what it felt like going in...

Ugly game, no lie. I have to say, tho you guys got the benefit of most of the "no-calls" by the officials, it was the worst officiated game I've seen all year both ways. The helmet to helmet, a hit out of bounds, lots of holds (what else is new), and the running into the kicker (by both teams!). Just awful. Glad to see they finally threw a flag on a horse-collar this year. Seriously, is Roy just stupid, is that all he can do to stop a ballcarrier, or does he know he'll still get away with it 99% of the time? Wait til he breaks Peyton's or Brady's ankle, then it's over. Props to AJ Feeley for pulling a WWF manager move and distrating a ref so BDawk could pull off a PI with no flag. Good times.

Really, the game is summed up by this one thought: you guys got beat by 4 points (really 11) playing your absolute worst game of the year after u clinched a 1st-round bye. We just BARELY beat a playoff team in a game that went down to the last cpl possessions, and we played like we've been playing all year (actually, better on D, about the same on O). So fret not. Now that you've watched 2 complete Eagles games this year, if not more, you must understand what we're going thru all season. I think we're 1 top WR (who can fucking get open) and more healing time for McNabb (and now apparently a kicker, tho that used to be a lock) from being a playoff team again. 5 losses to playoff teams this year by a combined 16 points. The difference in 6-8 and not having to watch the playoffs from the couch this year is bone-headed penalties (especially the drive-killers on offense), AJ Feeley last-play interceptions, and Andy Reid's atrocious play-calling and game-day coaching.

Anyway, thanks for ending a 3-game losing streak and keeping me from beating my children. Good luck in the playoffs, and wish us luck in the coaching-change department."
