The one real good part of being a fan of the 4-9 Eagles on a short week is we're able to relax and enjoy the game. Sure, we want to win (I think, unless you're a draftnik), but we're more interested in following the progress of our favorite boys and new guys. Meanwhile, in Cincinnati, Bengals fans will be taking gas until their boy Andy Dalton is taking a knee in victory formation.
