Eagles vs Cowboys: There Is Hope

     While the two teams meeting this Sunday have their unique challenges to overcome, the Eagles and Cowboys have one thing on the agenda: keep hope alive. 

 

     The Eagles are heavily depleted in their offensive line, illustrated by seven sacks on Michael Vick last Sunday against the Saints. To make matters worse, right tackle Todd Herremans was also placed on the injury reserved list this week. Eagles’ coach Andy Reid is fighting for his job. Many believe he’s already lost it, and it’s just a matter of time until he’s gone. Vick has turned the ball over 14 times this season including nine interceptions and five lost fumbles. Believe it or not, this may not the worst of the Eagles’ issues. While turnovers certainly attribute to losing, injuries do as well. The Eagles have been plagued with injuries this season on both offense and defense, so it’s no wonder the Eagles are struggling.

 

     As for the Cowboys, things aren’t any easier. Romo is struggling even more than Vick in regard to turnovers. He has 15 including 13 interceptions, four of which came against the Giants in Week 8. Injuries haven’t been kind to Dallas either, losing key defensive and offensive players including linebacker Sean Lee and running back DeMarco Murray. Jason Garret has also been under fire for his strange mix of play calling. He was even asked in a press conference on Monday if he was “scared to let Romo loose.” The Cowboys may be the most underachieving team in football holding a record far below the expectations many had at the beginning of the season.  

 

     Is there any hope for these two teams? The answer is yes and no. Yes, because according to injury reports on NFL.com, both teams are expected to get significant players returning this week including Murray for Dallas and Nate Allen for Philadelphia. Yes, because a win against their opponent could give them the momentum it may take to get to the post season. On the other hand, a loss will virtually end the season, as no team with a 3-6 record has made the postseason under the current playoff format. 

 

     This may be the most anticipated match up between two 3-5 teams in recent memory. As for the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles, there may be a new hope.

Love.

What is love? Is it a feeling? Is it an expression? Does it even exist?

Love has avoided me for a while. I thought I had it under my control. Thought I had it in the palm of my hand.

Held on to it tight. I really did. Well…I did….

But love escaped. Pretty tough to hold on to. Love’s a slippery one.

Just when you think you have it in your grasp, it shows you how it can wiggle itself out.

But, was it really even love? Or was I mislead? Did I find a sort-of Fool’s love?

Perhaps what I had was a feeling; just human hormones flowing through my body.

Is that what love is? Because, if that’s it, then it’s not even worth it.

Maybe I should go look for love somewhere else. Perhaps not from a woman, but from something bigger.

Something like….God.

You Are Awesome (Song)

I look across the world and I see, your creation.

I look into the sky and I see, Your glory displayed.

I look into your book and I see, the love you have for me.

I look back in my life at how You changed me, and I see…

 

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome!

God, there is no one like You.

You are Awesome.

 

I raise my hands to you in surrender.

I lift my voice to you in addoration

I fall down to my knees in awestruck wonder

My hands, my voice, my knees begin to shake, because….

 

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome!

God, there is no one like You.

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome!

God, there is no one like you!

 

People may mock you. People may doubt you.

People may create ways to deny you.

But I know that one day, your power will be displayed

for all the earth to recognize, and every knee shall bow and proclaim…

 

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome!

God, there is no one like You.

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome.

You are Awesome!

God, there is no one like you!

Take the shot! (Poem)

We live for this moment.

This little stretch of time

with only one second

before the buzzer chyme.

 

Give it all you got!

Don’t waste this opportunity

This is your last shot!

Your final chance for victory.

 

Now the ball is on the way.

No time to turn back now.

You may never have another day

to commit another foul.

 

Don’t stand around and wait.

Get up and go before it’s too late!
