Oh, that loss to the Cardinals in the NFC Championship Game was THE emphatic end to the era... only further emphasized with JJ's passing six months later. It just figured that the one time the offense came through in a big playoff game the way it did in coming back against Arizona, it would be JJ's defense -- which had been the backbone throughout the Andy Reid era -- that would falter and blow the game. That's when I knew it wasn't meant to be.
Around and around we go, where and when this nightmare will stop, nobody knows.
