Philly Sports Muse:
Brian Dawkins entered Lincoln Financial Field out of the tunnel for the final time , of course on all fours (check out an awesome GIF). His very entrance filled the stadium with so much energy that I swear I could feel it in my living room. He wasn’t playing tonight but Brian Dawkins was back with the Philadelphia Eagles, helping his team.
NBC didn’t deem the retirement of the number 20 was important enough to cease their usual halftime nonsense. So all of Eagles nation turned to PhiladelphiaEagles.com to witness the rousing ceremony.
The lights at the Linc were turned down. There was a laser show. “20″ was projected onto the field with green lights. And the compilation of just a fraction of his accomplishments–can you imagine being tasked with selecting just a few?–was awe-inspiring. Could it be real? Did we really have the privilege of seeing this powerful player and leader play defense on the Eagles?
It was enough to make your hair stand on end.

This Sunday, Peyton Manning returns to Gillette Stadium. It's a place that hasn't been kind to him, against a team that's been even less kind. In Manning's resume of greatness, he could have the wins, the completion records, the touchdown throws. But the Patriots would take the big wins, the titles -- and his heart. Gillette was the home of Ty Law, whose telepathy...
