Terrible Terrible Terrible.

The Eagles game is mercifully over, with an embarrassing 24-0 defeat at the hands of the hated Dallas Cowboys. I was able to watch some of the game thanks to the miracle of streaming internet, but ultimately that was too much to bear; the gamecast was better to follow. So what the hell happened? Basically it comes down to two things - 1) the team didn't show up and 2) they have no heart.

I am not sure the Eagles aren't now just a one and done team. Most likely, the Eagles have to return to Dallas next week for the wild-card game. Oh joy. If you want more up to date information and much wittier commentary than what I have to offer on it - visit Bleeding Green Nation. The postmortem that is sure to come from the Philly media and blogosphere will be stifling and harsh, and you know what, the team deserves every bit of it. To quote Jim Mora:
We couldn’t do...diddly poo offensively, we couldn’t make a first down, we couldn’t run the ball, we didn’t try to run the ball, we couldn’t complete a pass - we sucked. The second half, we sucked. We couldn't stop the run...that was a horsesh*t performance in the second half. Horsesh*t. I’m totally embarrassed and totally ashamed. Coaching did a horrible job. The players did a horrible job. We got our ass kicked in that second half. It sucked. It stunk.
