As an Eagles fan I am very pleased by today’s victory over the Giants. Oh hell, I’m ecstatic, as is Helaine, as is Stef down in Florida (but watching with my Giants fan dad).
As the Eagles swooned mid-season none of us thought this was in the offing. Up until the last day of the season we didn’t think they’d make it. They peaked at the right time and everything else magically fell into place.
The Eagles will not be favored the rest of the way, but I think a convincing case can be made they should be.
One of the Fox announcers said the Eagles were currently “playing with house money.” That’s a good place to be.
