The whining has already started where I live. They couldn't exactly complain about Donovan McNabb considering he threw over 300 yards. Terrell Owens was clearly healthy and contributed. Brian Westbrook gained almost 100 yards and scored. And the defense held the Patriots to 24 points, which is no small feat.
All I'm hearing from the neighbors is how poor the clock management was. They had to march the entire length of the field in the last minute, and score. Had they hurried, and turned the ball over, fans would have been complaining that the Eagles should have been patient.
Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles for being closer to NFL champions than any other Eagles team since the Super Bowl Era began. Going to four consecutive NFC championship games is a major accomplishment, especially into today's league. They were simply slightly out-played by a slightly better team. SunFyre applauds you.
And congratulations to Bob Kraft and his New England Patriots for building the first dynasty of the 21st century.
