Are these the wackiest first six games of a season in Eagles history? First, there was the Jeremiah Trotter pre-game fight/ejection. Then there was the Donovan McNabb rare sports hernia injury. There was the remarkable comeback victory in Kansas City. And then the worst loss in more than five years to the Dallas Cowboys. But this 20-17 improbable win over the Chargers takes the cake.
Will this win have the same affect as Brian Westbrook's game-winning punt return TD against the N.Y. Giants did two years ago? That game-breaker also came in Week 6, but the Eagles were 2-3 heading into that contest and looked to be dropping to 2-4. The Eagles went 9-1 from there on out and advanced all the way to the NFC Championship for a third consecutive year.
Does one great play from the special teams nullify all the cruddy ones they've produced up until that point this season?
Can Andy Reid continue to play with the football gods, shunning the run way in favor of the passing game?
Will we ever really know the reason why Donovan McNabb is either good or bad in any particular game? Was it because of his sports hernia or some other injury? Was it because he was just plain bad or because Reid "had to do a better job of getting him the right plays."
Why did Reid call a pass play on the fourth-and-1 late in the game and for that matter, not a very good one?
Why did the Eagles defense focus all its energy on stopping the run? Yes, they stuffed LaDainian Tomlinson, but couldn't they have exerted some energy in stopping Drew Brees?
