Eying the Eagles

Not many comics to review of late, and the "grind" has begun again in earnest, but I have to pay tribute to the Eagles' return to the NFC championship game. Given life by some fortunate results on the last weekend of the season, they've taken full advantage. Not sure if they can make it three straight road wins, but, with the Phillies having busted that maddening "curse of Billy Penn," at least the "weight of expectations" has lessened considerably.

In preparation for the NFC title clash, here's a link to a blast from the past: Wilbert Montgomery's TD run vs. Dallas in the 1980 NFC championship game vs. the Cowboys. I watched this live! (At home on TV, I should say, not at Vet Stadium.)
