Week 7: Weigh-In


Coach Reid is now 7-0 in games played following the Eagles bye-week. The 7th wasn't easy...

The Birds snuck by the Chargers yesterday thanks to an improbable special teams play. So improbable in fact that it was the Eagles first blocked field goal to be returned for a touchdown in team history. That's 72 years worth of history.

My immediate reaction was to compare this play to the improbable punt return for a touchdown by Brian Westbrook against the Giants 2 seasons ago. That return came with the sputtering Eagles down 10-7 with under 1 minute remaining in the game. The unexpected early season twist turned the Eagles year around and led them to the NFC championship.

Let's hope this win, lucky number 7, has the same effect on the Birds.
