Gotta love those Birds!

Midway through the season what did you think - cooked, stick a fork 'n 'em! - yep me too!

But guess what, the Eagles found away to win, got there sh*t together and proved to themselves, to the fans, to the league, that to win you need talent and skills, but also coaching, heart and a bit of luck. It doesn't hurt that the guys on the team are character guys, with the will and belief to continue in a winning (not whining) fashion.

Go Birds!

PS TO who?
