Back From the Dead

After one of the worst three-week stretches in franchise history, one in which the obituary of the Reid/McNabb era was written dozens of times, the Eagles seemingly came back from the dead Thanksgiving night, crushing the Arizona Cardinals 48-20.
Donovan McNabb continued his career-long streak of always having a great game after a week-long controversy, while Brian Westbrook overcame injuries to score four touchdowns. And most strangely of all, the team actually used a balanced attack, running the ball more than passing it over the course of the game.
At 6-5-1, they’re still a playoff longshot, but this victory should be enough to stave off the braying jackals away for at least another week. Then again, fan optimism still isn’t high. My father-in-law was trying to sell his tickets up until the day of the game; I joked that doing that must’ve been like trying to sell your house right now.
