Telltale Sunday

Old home week for John Harbaugh comes at kind of an awkward time.  At least on the surface.  He’d like nothing better than to share stories of how much he admires his mentor Andy Reid, then hopefully show him the pupil has passed the teacher.

But this week has become the tipping point for the Eagles, and Harbaugh may prove responsible in sending Reid over the irreparable edge. 

The Eagles hard to believe tie game with Cincy, and the subsequent backlash about Donovan McNabb now knowing games ended in ties has stretched Reid and McNabb’s credibility to the brink in Philly.  So they arrive in Baltimore this week, probably needing to win five of their final six games for any hopes of a playoff berth. 

At this point, all the frustration and not yet met expectations will either galvanize the Eagles or tear them apart.  A lot of which will depend on the pressure applied from Baltimore.  If the Ravens return to their impressive ways and send the Eagles packing, it may prove the dawn of a new era in Philadelphia.
