Hard Day for Eagles Fans

It is a sad, ugly day for Eagles fans all over the country. The roar of frustration in the air over Philly is almost tangible. We are in mourning here at The Gang's house.

Late breaking news is that Brian Dawkins, quite possibly the heart and soul of the whole Eagles franchise, has signed a five-year deal with the Denver Broncos.

While we certainly wish this godly man the very best in his new career path, we are incredibly sad for our own loss. Not only is he a passionate player who leaves EVERYTHING on the field, he was very active in local charities and was a great role model of integrity and "family first" for thousands and thousands of fans. For my boys.

And the man can rock the tats. I'm just sayin' . . . .

Sunday afternoons of Eagles football and hanging with my gang just won't be the same.

The very night that you left your comment, Simms came home and told me. I am sorry. I know how stinky this kind of thing is for a fan - especially when the player is this good.

I saw this on the news. It seems like a player in most pro sports will never stay with their original team for their entire career.

Well - sorry for your loss - but remember that when one door closes another one opens!

Mourning here at the Stoltzfus house too. If we had an Eagles flag, it would definately be flying at half-mast. Hubby wore black to church... Boys are blasting upper management... It certainly was fun to have a man of high character to cheer on!!

Hi there.Sorry about the loss. That is one serious bummer.

Just a belated note to say thanks for speaking up on my post about acceptance over at 5 Minutes For Special Needs. That was a hard post to do, but I'm glad I did.
