:D shhhhhhhhh. Don't jinx them.

http://philadelphiaeagles.com/gameday <------ Note this link is for each week

In their first season opener at home since the 2004 season, the Eagles enjoyed the homefield advantage with a blowout 38-3 win over the St. Louis Rams.

Quarterback Donovan McNabb was on fire early and often as he completed 21 of 33 passes for 361 yards - the most ever for McNabb in a season opener - and three touchdowns. Despite the absence of Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown, the Eagles had three wide receivers - rookie DeSean Jackson, Hank Baskett and Greg Lewis - each go over 100 yards. It was the first time a trio of Eagles receivers accomplished that in the same game since Dec. 18, 1960 when Timmy Brown, Tommy McDonald and Pete Retzlaff did it. Brian Westbrook picked up right where he left off from last season by scoring the first touchdown of the game, a 1-yard shovel pass from McNabb, and adding a second score later on. He finished with 91 rushing yards on 19 carries and the two scores.


Well it appears the Eagles may actually have a solid offense for the first time in my life. Defense was never issue, see Gang Green Good article here:

http://espn.go.com/page2/s/list/readers ... fense.html

The defense was a different story. They used to win us games. Not like Baltimore of 2000 that would give the offense a chance to win, this defense would actually win games (they won all eight that year)


:lol: Thats the truth too...

Any Eagles fans? Going to win to the SB? :yes:

Why would you want the Eagles to go back to the Superbowl, so Donovan can take a nap again in the fourth quarter?




Go Patriots!!

What a game...Halftime Report.

2nd Highest scoring game in MNF history for first quaarter.

Bone head rookie throws, Ball on ground at goal line... :rofl:

Fortunately for him no one on Cowboys picked it up, now he'll only be on blooper reel for 10 years instead of the forever.

I'm a huge Eagles Fan. Richard, not many of us in these parts. Mostly front runner Steelers fans.
Best game I can remember in years. Just need a 2 pt conversion or some more turnovers.

He always ends up playing with someone who can throw the ball. Imagine how many times he'd be strutting if he was catching Pennington's powderpuff passes :) Scott

What a maroon he is. Come on how dumb can a person be? To busy wanting to show off rather then trying to get the job done first, hopefully he'll learn from this and stop trying to be a show off.

Good game overall even though the Iggles lost. I was yelling at the TV that last drive, McNabb holding the ball, taking the sacks rather than throwing it away to stop the clock.

It was mentioned he did something more bone head than that previously in H.S.

Apparently this is not the first time he threw a touchdown away, he was in some big H.S. game that was televised and was running for the endzone and did a swan dive at the 5 yard line and came up 1 yard short. :lol: Also got a unsportsmanlike penalty on top of it. Not sure if they scored...

Yep that was good game, too bad they lost.

Edit here's video from both:
