Momentum was not the ex-factor that allowed the Eagles to win their way to a date with the Giants. I’m not sure if writers and reporters actually watched the Eagles beat the Vikings on Sunday. If they did, why would one write “[McNabb] led the Eagles…with brilliant throws” when the Eagles settled for four field goals on offense, adding to their terrible red zone stats for the season? This does not seem to be the working of “brilliant” quarterbacking. After admitting to not understanding overtime and its possible outcome, McNabb should never be described with any adjective related to “smart.” Yes, this privilege is also lost for Plaxico Burress who should’ve shot himself in the nuts because that’s what he deserves.
It’s always about momentum. San Diego and Indianapolis are undisputedly the hottest teams going into the playoffs. Indy brings a 9-game winning streak with their probably MVP quarterback Older-Usually-Wiser Manning to San Diego where they will face a team that had written itself off as early as Week 2 after they lost one game in the last minute to Carolina and Denver was given the gift of officiating so bad we haven’t seen Ed Hochuli since.
