Thy name is “2012 Eagles.” Eagles v. Panthers, Monday, November 26, 2012 Stud of the week: Bryce Brown. Yes, he had two fumbles. But he also scored the Birds only two TDs and broke the rookie rushing record. Hey, the pickin’s are pretty slim these days, y’all. I was out last night, as was Chef Spouse. So, with neither of us knowing exactly when we’d get home, we set the game to record. I got in the door just as the game was starting. You know how, when it’s two teams that aren’t very good and aren’t even in your conference, like maybe Jaguars versus Chiefs, but you think “Yeah, but it’s Monday Night Football. Last game of the week. What else am I going to watch?” That. Was I the only one who noticed that the Linc seemed, best case, 2/3 full? Was I the only one who noticed that the boos were already starting when the first drive resulted in a (say it with me) FIELD GOAL. AGAIN. Was I the only one who noticed that Mike Tirico and Chuckie were already talking about how great RG3 is by the second quarter? That type of meandering is usually reserved for the fourth quarter of blowouts, people! Even worse? By late in the third quarter, when the Eagles were still up, 22-21, I said to Chef Spouse (who was home by that point but had no interest in trying to watch the game from the beginning, which is telling), “I have a big day tomorrow and I’m tired. I’m sure they’ll find a way to blow it. I’m going to bed.” Which is also telling. And, true to form, they blew it. To back up, a friend of a friend offered to sell us his tickets to the game a few weeks ago. His excuse? Can’t get out of DC (where I, also, am located) for a Monday night game. And they were good seats – club level. And he wanted face value for them ($265 a ticket). Excuse me while I bust a gut laughing. Thing is, other than the myriad mistakes from both teams, it was actually a relatively exciting game to watch. The lead changed five times. Bryce Brown broke the Eagles rookie single game rushing record. Mike Patterson recorded the Eagles first sack in what feels like…all season? Nah, it’s not quite that bad. But it feels that way. And now Jason Babin has been released. And in bad news, DeSean Jackson is on IR with broken ribs. And in worse news, King Dunlap still appears to be healthy. I know I’m a broken record at this point, but it’s over. The season is over. Andy Reid’s tenure as head coach is over. Mike Vick’s career might be over. Some of these guys are playing their last games as Eagles. Can you believe the last win was in September? At least the team gave Wolverine a good send off. The thing that pisses me off the most is that I spend 7 months of each year thinking, “I can’t WAIT for football season to start.” Right now I’m thinking, “When will this end? Put us out of our misery already!” That’s just sad.
