Fourth And Twenty Six

Someone tell me the Packers only had 8 defenders on the field for that play and maybe I would believe it, but fourth down and 26 yards for a first down and the Eagles get it?

That's what I call a prevent defense...

A prevent you from winning defense.

Here's how I look at it:

On 4th down, the Packers couldn't get 24 inches

On 4th down, the Eagles DID get 24 yards

The better team won.

Oh, and of course, JUST WAIT 'TILL NEXT YEAR!

If I hear the phrase "4th and 26" one more time today I am going to KILL someone.

Rodney Dill:

"Commitment to Excellence"
"I owe most everything to football, in which I have spent the greater part of my life. And I have never lost my respect, my admiration or my love for what I consider a great game. And each Sunday, after the battle, one group savors victory, another group lives in the bitterness of defeat. The many hurts seem a small price to have paid for having won, and there is no reason at all that is adequate for having lost. To the winner there is one hundred percent elation, one
hundred percent laughter, one hundred percent fun; and to the loser the only thing left for him is a one hundred percent resolution, one hundred percent determination. And it's a game, I think, a great deal like life in that it demands that a man's personal commitment be toward excellence and be toward victory, even though you know that ultimate victory can never be completely won. Yet it must be
pursued with all of one's might. And each week there's a new encounter, each year a new challenge. But all of the rings and all of the money and all of the color and all of the display, they linger only in the memory. The spirit, the will to win and the will to excel, these
are the things that endure and these are the qualities that are so much more important than any of the events that occasion them. And I'd like to say that the quality of any man's life has got to be a full measure of that man's personal commitment to excellence and
to victory, regardless of what field he may be in."

I need to hear one more time how the EAGLES WON THE GAME ON FOURTH and TWENTY-SIX ... what a sick play, and that is what's gonna win them the super bowl. It was a planned play, and they didn't get lucky. They knew what they had to do and so did the fans. I never lost faith even when they were losing 0-14. EAGLES are the greatest team, and they wiped green bay's face in shit and left them in the dirt. Eagles have acquired this amazing skill of winning when all hope is lost and they will not let us down.

Green Bay..........named after a lush evergreen bay just off of Lake Michigan...NO...named after the algae that forms on the bay during the summer commonly referred to as pond scum....Green Bay founded by the legenday Curley (Howard) Lambaugh. Legend has it he borrowed money from a friend who owned a meat packing business. Well in Wisconsin everyone knows that a meat packer is nothing but a sausage maker...hence the Packers should actually be the fifth sauaage in the sauage race at Miller park and not in the NFL. FOURTH AND 26...BELIEVE. GO EAGLES
