WE CAN BUILD ON THIS: There will be no Five Stages of Eagles Grief post from me today, because I'm not grieving.
This was a flawed, lucky team playing with house money that had no business being in the playoffs in the first place. Today, the Cardinals had one great half, and we had one great half, only their half was a little bit better, and their borderline-in Hall of Fame quarterback made a few more plays than our own sturdy signal caller. It's a shame that it took so long for the Eagles to figure out how to pressure Warner (while the Cardinals were harassing McNabb all day) and had tackling issues for most of the day, but that's life.
No anger, no depression. As I wrote after the 2006 season (the loss at New Orleans), "I'm only asking for one title. (And a Democratic president on 1-20-09.)"
Well, we've got that title, and we'll have that President as scheduled. Pitchers and catchers report in twenty-seven days.
