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 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.

  1. Hey Man,

    Yea, the Eagles looked phenomenal on Sunday. I think McNabb may have a new favorite target in Jackson this year. The only other receiver to have a 100-yard game in his NFL debut was Anquan Boldon and we all know how his rookie year turned out. Very good sign for the Birds. It was a nice tuneup game for their big test on the road Monday night in Dallas, where the Cowboys open the doors of their new home. I actually had the Eagles -8 posted on my blog on Sunday and it added to a very profitable day. Keep up the good work with your blog. Take care.
