The Eagles are not on local TV today, so Helaine and I are listening to Merrill Reese and Mike Quick do the radio play-by-play.
This has been a great year for the Eagles. So far, they’re 7-0. That’s probably going to change.
The Eagles are playing the Pittsburgh Steelers. We watched the Steelers dismantle the New England Patriots last weekend. Today they are filleting the Eagles.
It is as if the Eagles never got on the bus to go to the stadium. This is very sad for two reasons. First, the Eagles undefeated streak will end. Second, we could end up meeting the Steelers in the Super Bowl.
Of course it’s possible the Eagles could come back from the 21-0 deficit they’re currently facing. I just don’t see how.
