    How long has it been since this happened? Two kicks recovered, one for our only TD. And some good work by the field goal unit as well.

    It's been a long time since I didn't cringe watching our special teams.

    The only error was the Al Harris injury, beyond that, I think it was a perfect day.

    I think bad special teams by Philly might have something to do with it too.

    I would agree to a point - I think the Eagles ST lost the game. We however, were able to capitalize on these miscues - something that has not happened recently.

    Also, Crosby had a nice debut deep kickoffs, a long FG with yards to spare and finally a clutch kick to win the game with a bad snap to boot. As much as I loved Longwell, I think he may have pulled up and not even attempted that kick or it would have at least thrown him off rhythm for a likely miss.

    A bad day for Ryan probably contributed to the Eagles ST issues. If he would have kicked lights out, it is difficult to imagine them mishandling 2 punts so badly.
