THESE EAGLES HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL
When, then, will it be safe to acknowledge that this is a different team than so many of the recent others?
Now, that's when.
In a 19-17 victory over the New York Giants Sunday, the Eagles showed why they are so difficult to stop when it matters. They are versatile. They can soften a defense with LeSean McCoy, among the best running backs in the game. They can threaten one with Brent Celek. They can torment one with DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin.
And just when a defense commits to any of those trouble spots, there is Michael Vick, able to run out of trouble.
"I like the personality of the team," Andy Reid said. "I like their grit. They are willing to fight. And tonight, we battled right to the end."
