Not What People Expect

Saying there has been a lot of hype leading up to the game against the Eagles this weekend would be a severe understatement. The reunion of TO and Donovan McNabb. Will they speak? McNabb said he wouldn't mind shaking hands or bumping chests with TO before the game (yeah, right). Will Dawkins try to kill TO on the field? Will the Philthy fans be the typical drunken A-holes that they always are?

Who cares?

None of it matters. I hope that TO gets on the field and makes some big plays, but there is another player that is going to be more important to this game. If Terry Glenn has a good game, it will be difficult for the Eagles to beat the Cowboys, and Glenn has owned the Eagles in the last three games, including 118 yards and 2 TD's in the first meeting last season.

Should the Eagles decide to double cover Glenn, then TO will be waiting on the opposite side of the field, and Jason Witten will be open in the post. If the Eagles throw some extra help at one of them, then Julius Jones will have open running lanes. Quite a dilemma for the little birds.
