I'm recalling my mindset going into 2011. That Eagles game was pretty cool. We hadn't won any meaningful games since 2002. A 24 -23 comeback win at PHILLY in week 5 (?) felt like a playoff game to me. Then in a few weeks, Handshake Bowl at Detroit was when I knew WE WE'RE BACK!
We've had bigger road wins that have meant more but for fans that experienced 2003 - 2010...these games were sweet.
I'll admit, that Eagles game was big. It took me until the Tampa game to believe though.
I was at this game, had great seats. I live in DE, close to Philly, been to many Eagles games, there fans are absolute dicks and usually, if you wear the opposing team colors, you are in trouble, this game, that comeback demoralized their fanbase so bad that I was actually getting pats on the back and people were telling me good game. They literally hung their heads and were ashamed, I remember telling my wife, this game sucks I wish I could just leave but I paid too much money for these seats at halftime, then boom! The game winning drive then the Justin Smith strip of Maclin (who he caught from behind were a thing of beauty).
