The Eagles' two pathetic losses in Dallas over a six-day span were just so bad that you had to try and keep a sense of humor about 'em.
The 24-0 loss in the season finale at Dallas cost the Eagles the NFC East title and the conference’s No. 2 playoff seed…and earned the Birds a repeat date in Big D just six days later.
Another once promising season came to a disastrous end in the playoffs, as the Eagles (11-5) lost to the Cowboys, 34-14. The only highlight came when Michael Vick hit Jeremy Maclin with a 76-yard TD pass in the second quarter, coming after McNabb had failed to generate a single point for five consecutive quarters against Dallas.
The loss marked the only time in the Reid-McNabb era that the Eagles had exited the postseason without winning at least one game, and ultimately, the loss brought the greatest era of Eagles football to a forgettable close.
Ironically, the Eagles had signed Andy Reid to a contract extension just three weeks before the first loss in Dallas. He's probably staying in Phily for the next four years...
And, well, thanks, DonnyMac, for the memories. We’ll see you again on October 3.
