Going Fourth

Sunday, January 11, 2009, 11:54 AM
Updating: Double wow. Two fourth downs the Giants have gone for near midfield, twice the middle of the Eagles' defense has stuffed. Time is ticking. David Akers just made it 23-11 with a 20-yard field goal. This is starting to look a lot like Arizona, and an NFC title berth. Hold your breath. And... Read more

The road challenge

Why the Eagles win, and why they don't

Pierce: Birds are not this year's Giants

Thursday, January 8, 2009, 4:38 PM
Giants middle linebacker Antonio Pierce was not buying into the notion that this year's Eagles are just like last year's Giants -- a team that went on the road and won in the postseason and had to face the top seed in the second round. Not unless the Eagles win the Super Bowl. After asking a reporter... Read more

Weather or Not, Birds Ready

Thursday, January 8, 2009, 12:16 PM
It was inevitable that Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg was going to be asked about the weather in his Thursday news conference. Wind was a huge factor in the last meeting with the Giants at the Meadowlands, Dec. 7, and of course, we all know the Birds (and kicker David Akers, specifically)... Read more
