So I don't know how many of watched the game last night, but it was definitely some classic football, even if it did include the Cowgirls. Entertaining the whole night - couldn't decide whether to hope a loss and a short week would make Philly easier to beat, or hope a win and over-confidence. (just kidding, I pretty much always like to see Dallas lose, if only 'cause I live down here and it's always great to hear everyone crying about it on the radio)
Anyway, here's my question for you all - After two Philly field goals and two Dallas touchdowns, Asante Samuel (glad he's not in a Patriots uniform anymore) intercepts Romo, and the resulting drive leads to a McNabb - Westbrook TD. The score is now Eagles 12, Cowboys 14. I said, and continue to say, that Philly should have gone for two. Even if you miss it, you're only two back, less than a field goal. Make it, and you've tied the game. In the end, Philly was down 4, had to start at their 22, and it was a touchdown or nothing.
So, is there a downside to going for two there that I'm missing?
To the bold go the spoils...
