Eagles Crush Rams
Everybody thought the Eagles were going to win. Oddly enough, they did win, blowing out the hapless St. Louis Rams 38-3. Donavan McNabb was outstanding, throwing for 361 yards and three touchdowns. But let's not waste time giving stats. If you want stats look at ESPN.com for the box score. Let's talk about Desean Jackson.
The birth of a star. Well, maybe not, but Desean Jackson (upper left) did have a great debut. He had over a hundred yards receiving. He had some AMAZING catches. I think he will emerge as the Eagles top wideout in the coming games. I know that Andy Reid doesn't believe in rookie wideouts, but he won't be able to deny Jackson.
McNabb wasn't to shabby either. He usually starts out the season very sharp. One thing I think Andy Reid does well is prepare his team for the season. The defense looked great, allowing only three points. Asante Samuel had a great debut as an Eagle. This team looks great.
