Aikers has won more games for you guys than he's lost. You can point the finger allday long @ different players. To me it comes down to coaching OR lack of.

The real turning point was when Philly cut the lead to 14-10 and let GB march all the way down the field on the next possession. Where's the killer instinct that they've shown before?? Wasn't present! When the Giants had them crushed it was Philly D's that stepped up and allowed that comeback to happen.

I think for Kate....NE=Northeast, not New England. Notice the use of "the" before it in her post.

Now get out of here you stinkin' Pats fan.

The division is going to be interesting next year. The Cowboys might get their house in order but Romo will always be a question mark. I seriously doubt the Redskins will ever get their house in order. The Giants are going to have some serious psychological baggage to deal with. And the Eagles are in the same boat.
Oh well, at least we have the Phillies and baseball season to look forward to. You have to feel sorry for the Giants fans who are also Mets fans and the Redskins/Nationals fans.....

Reid is becoming jeff fisher, he won't leave. I love what he has done for the eagles but after 12 years it is time.
No it isn't.

The team is very young right now. Playoffs 9 of 11 years for Reid. I'm in South Texas - Texans, 0 for 9 years. Take your pick.

NAME FGM FGA PCT
David Akers 32 38 84.2
was 32 36 going into that game 89.5

The mans a machine, he misses but four all season, did two of them have to come in a same playoff game...
Hmmm who really won the Eagles v. Giants and put the Eagles in the playoffs....Akers.

Without that excellent onside kick (which is very hard to do perfectly) the Eagles dont get the ball back, score, and gain the momentum. Eagles probably would have missed the playoff like the Giants did since the lost the tie breaker against the Bears and Pack.

Eagles Fans have higher expectations since the Phillies won the title in 2008

This is so easy to say for a non-Eagles fan. If you had lived the last decade or so of ridiculous disappointment, you would probably feel differently. Just because they get to the playoffs practically every season, doesn't negate the fact that they can't get over the hump.
