So Negative!

As a working member of the press, I often bristle when people accuse me of rampant negativity. And, let me add, that as a long-suffering Philadelphia sports fan, the managed expectations game is a necessity to survive. But this column has to be, without a doubt, one of the most wrong-headed things I've seen in a long time.

"But should any of us really be excited by what transpired in the 47-17 win over Green Bay on Sunday? Does anyone really expect Ahman Green to rush for 39 yards if the teams meet again? Does anyone really think Brett Favre is going to do nothing while the Eagles ramrod his Packers again?"

"I know I don't think so," Packers wide receiver Donald Driver said. "Understand, we didn't play our game [Sunday]. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. If you asked anyone in this locker room if things would be different if we were to play Philly again, the answer would be a unanimous yes, because things couldn't get any worse."

Driver forgot to add that things couldn't be any better for the Eagles right now. And that's exactly why the Eagles should be worried.

Steve, Steve. Take a Zoloft. And one other thing -- that Driver drivel is a bunch of junk. Ask him why exactly the Packers didn't play their game on Sunday. Could it possibly be that the Eagles, are, in fact good? Lordy.
