Game Time: Eagles @ Giants

Jan 11, 2009, 12:54 PM EDT

The wait is over. It’s the Eagles and Giants at the frigid Meadowlands in playoff football. It doesn’t get much better than this.

This Eagles team has taken us on a roller coaster ride. From the highs of beating the Cowboys on the final day of the season to the lows of the Washington and Cincinnati games, the trip has been exciting and it’s not over yet. Simply making the playoffs seemed like a miracle at the time but with a ticket to Tampa within reach, a win is the only acceptable option.

The word is Correll Buckhalter will see a lot of time in the backfield, playing a quasi fullback role. With the weather conditions not looking kindly on Andy Reid’s pass happy philosphy, we may get the chance to see if the Birds can pound it out on the ground. Either that or Donovan will have to throw it so hard that the wind won’t phase him.

I think these teams are so familiar and evenly matched that it will come down to turnovers. But I’ll never bet against a Brian Dawkins led defense. If they stop Brandon Jacobs, they win. 2 wins from Tampa. Let’s beat New York.

Can you feel it in your doggone chest?!@?!@
