This time (and finally) at clutch/crunch time, the Eagles don’t find coal in their stocking

Until Thursday night the Eagles were winless in six games decided by a touchdown or fewer.

In the clutch the Birds were shakier than the lead singer in a rumba band.

When the game was on the line, they resembled quivering pats of butter.

Their knocking knees sounded like bongo drums.

Needless to say, it was driving their fans right to the brink of madness.

Call it the magic of Christmas or something celestial, but all that changed dramatically last night when the Eagles somehow managed to prevent the hated Giants from clinching an NFL playoff berth 24-19 at the Linc.

Go figure.
