Week 11 Weigh-In


The Mike McMahon era is officially underway. Unfortunately, ol' #4's offense was complemented as well by the Eagles sporadic, ineffective defense as ol' #5's offense.

The Eagles D opened their week 11 showdown by keeping a potent NY Giants offense in check. But in the second half, while Mike McMahon was getting the Birds offense fired up, the defense allowed the G-Men to score easily and often. Their second half performance was so sour that even Troy Aikman noted how poorly they were playing. Funny the things you notice when Donovan and T.O. aren't on the field.

Looking at the positives:
  • Rookie DE Trent Cole has been the Eagles most impressive defender as of late, making up for an otherwise ordinary rookie class.
  • WR Billy McMullen is proving that he belongs on the field. He only had one catch for five yards but it was an impressive first down snare that was all hands.
  • Mike McMahon played pretty well. Outside of Michael Vick, he is instantly the league's most dangerous running quarterback. Looks like the offense should be able to continue to play well enough to win games.
After losing consecutive games they could have won against division opponents, this flock of Birds clearly isn't of the same caliber as Philly's 2000-2004 teams. The Eagles won't make the playoffs this season and Donovan won't be back on the field in '05. Hopefully, this is just a bump in the road.

For further proof of how hard the Eagles have fallen, first this email from Jim:
Philadelphia (PA) - A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a Philadelphia Pa courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Philadelphia Eagles, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.
