Is the Impossible Possible?

We will certainly see the answer to that question tonight at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts. The Eagles will visit the undefeated New England Patriots on national television. If you ask the guys from Los Vegas the Pats are favored by 24 points. But, hey, anything could happen, right? The Eagles starting quarterback for this game will be A.J. Feely. Donavan McNabb is out for this one.
The Eagles are trying to take down an opponent who averages 41 points a game and is set to break more records than previously thought possible. They have all time great quarterback in Tom Brady, who didn't have a single defender's hand touch him in the Patriots game last week against the Bills. The Eagles will have to put pressure on Brady if they hope to even stay competitive in this match up. Brady is spoiled in having receivers like Randy Moss, Donte Stallworth and Wes Welker catching his passes. The Patriots also have a premium running game led by Laurence Maroney and Kevin Faulk.
Let's not forget about the Patriots veteran defense. The linebackers consist of veteran names such as Mike Vrabel, Teddy Bruschi, Junior Seau, Rodney Harrison, and Adalius Thomas. The also have big free agent pick up Asante Samuel.
The Pats have slaughtered every team, except the Colts, in this season. Their is a chance the Eagles could pull out the improbable against the all-powerful, juggernaut Patriots. Now mind you, that is a very small chance, but a chance nonetheless. I would be proud if the Eagles did not get totally embarassed this game. Hey, anything could happen once the players suit up and take the field. Nothing is impossible.

  1. That was one hell of a fight the Eagles put up. If only Feeley hadn't gone for that long pass on 2nd and 4.
