Perhaps my favorite article on the Eagles 17-7 victory over the Dolphins is Ashley Fox's piece titled, "Man and Superman, McNabb and Westbrook." In the early days of The 700 Level, I used to throw around the nickname "Super Five" with regularity. I believed in the dynamic duo of McNabb's arm teamed up with his legs. Those days seem like a thing of the past with McNabb again finding a spot on the sideline after banging up his ankle.
Westbrook on the other hand has done nothing but show up and play like a beast. Game in and game out, 36 West has dazzled. He did it again yesterday coming up just shy of a buck and a half.
Say what you will about this Eagles team. To me, in depth analysis is useless at this juncture. The Birds fit that press conference saying that coaches like to use so frequently. They are what they are. (17 point dogs to the Patriots next week.)
An assortment of random Extras, after the jump.
BC came up big in Death Valley and clinched a spot in the ACC title game. Atlanta Eagle makes a plea for students to head to Florida, no excuses, " 'I’m broke.' You are a college student. Of course you’re broke. But
I imagine if you are like most college students you can always scrounge
up a few bucks if you really want something. Beg, borrow, deal. Go to
the blood bank. Sell your text books. Sell your roommate's text books!
Whatever it takes. Credit card debt lasts forever but as the ads say,
seeing BC battle for the ACC crown is priceless." [Atlanta Eagle]
