1/4 of the way in

Theres a good reason to be mad if your an Eagles fan with their performance the first 4 games of the season. However, I'm not. I love everything I've seen so far. They are a botched handoff and a QB sneak away from being 4-0. I know winning is everything, but sometimes you just dominate games and lose. It happens, its the NFL. Hats off to Donovan McNabb for his good start. 6 TD's and 2 INT's to go for his 95.7 rating is pretty good in my eyes. Brian Westbrook pretty much has missed 2 games but still manages to have 5 TD's total. DeSean Jackson has won me over as a fan. I get excited everytime the ball goes his way. But the thing I love seeing the most out of the Eagles is their run defense. They havent allowed a single runner to get over 65 yards yet. Thats unheard of if you have followed the Eagles this decade. And it isnt like they have played bad runningbacks either. Steven Jackson, Marion Barber III, Willie Parker, and Matt Forte. You have to love all the sacks they are getting as well, especially on Ben Roethlisberger. I think you have to say they've been the best defensive line the first quarter of football this season. They have a rather favorable schedule for a month or so here. I dont see why the Eagles cant be 5-3 or 6-2 when they play the Giants November 9th in PRIMETIME!! Im excited as hell for the rest of the season. Basically the message here is dont be mad if your an Eagles fan. Theres no way you can point out as many bad things then good things for this team so far. Keep your head up and just keep watching great football. E A G L E S EAGLES!
