Eagles v. Falcons, Sunday, October 28, 2012
No, I don’t mean the game. I KNOW the game is over. Thank God, because it was truly painful to watch.
No, I don’t mean Hurricane Sandy. She’s just getting cranked up here in the mid-Atlantic. Stay home and stay safe, y’all.
I mean the Eagles season. Is it over?
OK, mathematically, I know it’s not over. The Eagles aren’t even at their halfway point, the division-leading Giants are only up 3 games, and the Birds are technically ranked second in the division thanks to beating the G-men a month ago. And no NFC division other than North looks unstoppable at this point, so a wildcard would not be not out of the question, either.
And that’s all great, for what it’s worth, which right now, the morning after the first post-bye week loss of the Andy Reid era (a 30-17 drubbing by the Falcons at home, in case you’ve been too busy watching The Weather Channel to keep up) doesn’t feel like much.
What is going on at the NovaCare Complex? As Tommy...
