...just keeps getting smaller, and smaller ... Eagles quagmire, signifies your inability to meet obligations and that you are stuck in a daily non-exciting routine. Listen, you guys know me by know, no excuses! And for those who don't know me, yes, I'm a proud Eagles fan coming here (as you would see it on your MB; even though I've probably got more posting time on the Zone than many of you junior posters), to try to place some of our more than half gone regular season into perspective. Before I get started, I already know that many of you will not care, but if you look back in Zone archives (then Cowboys Zone), over the last few years when the Eagles were dominant in the NFCE, you'll find that for the most part, that long-time Zone/Eagle fans like AJM 1613, even "pardon the interruption" fan Armageddon-Eagle, and Tobias-Eagle 77, and a few undercover Eagle supporters, have all been here with you through much of your struggling times. Keeping pace with the lastest dialogue, following Cowboy/Zone guidelines (perhaps pushing the envelope from time to time to keep it interesting), but we were here. I say all that to say this ...while I don't speak for all of the Eagle Nation represented here on the Zone, I'm proud of my Eagle fan brothers (with the exception of passing trolls that all MB will get from time-to-time). This board is a great challenge for me, because I've learned at least 35% of my football savvy here; and trust me, that was baptism by fire! But the point to all this is that we offer a different perspective. For those of you who would say, "but this is a Cowboys MB ..." I'd say that many of us know that obvious detail, but we enjoy to mix it up and dialogue about our two perspectives. If opponent fans (including Redskin fans that I've seen here) weren't here as some of you suggested, wouldn't it be difficult to measure what other fandoms are saying and thinking; outside of the media. Hypothetically, who would care what color uniform Bledsoe was wearing when he plays in the game that decides whether the Cowboys go into the playoffs. Here, the point is that it could become monotonous if everyone started patting themselves on the back without some good old-fashioned hard criticism from Eagle fans Here it is ...we're part of this MB until the mods state otherwise! As such, here I stand, alone(?); perhaps, but full of fight! Sue, I could give you multiple reasons for this already half-gone disappointing regular season, and I could give you several scenarios to justify why Eagle fans that I know Believe we still have a chance at a wild card birth -- but I won't. You be the judge ... McNabb's injuries since training camp ...sprains, sports hernia, and groin pull. Akers' (for those who don't know, he's our starting kicker) hammy. T.O. (nuff said) Media attention (as it applies to players in the locker-room/grid iron focus). Pinkston (out for the season). Veteran FA losses. Yet, we still stand, ready to defend against Green Bay this coming weekend. We realize that our chances at having an outstanding season in 2006 far outweigh our chance of cleaning up the mess that we have in front of us, but I'll never give up on my team. Empty trophy cases, choking results, a 4-6 record, injury plagued, highly controversial franchise ...none of it will lower the prestege I have for the Philadelphia Eagles. So nothing but the best to the NFCE! I'll be rooting for our division to take it all! And if you don't ...better luck next year, cause you'll need it when you play the Eagles.
