Playoff football. It’s do or die tonight, and I unfortunately already feel the bottom of my stomach dropping out from under me. Where is Brian Dawkins when you need him?
The luster and abandonment the Eagles must bring to the Dallas field tonight has only been embodied by one player since I became an Eagles fan (which, granted, is not that long in the scope). If I don’t see any of the Birds’ crawling, pawing and mauling the ground when they take the field a la Dawkins, we’re in for another punch in the face tonight, courtesy of Tony Romo.
Home viewers can play their own game by counting how many times the announcers reference Dallas’ inability to win playoff games. No matter which way the tide rolls, that will be the constant point of reference tonight. I guarantee it.
Too bad there is nothing else guaranteed.
