The hour approaches, and honestly, it’s hard to stay seated. Pacing leads to shadowboxing. That ends with the urge to pick up the phone again to see if there are any updates. Every quote and every ounce of information keeps leading us back to the same questions. Who has the edge on Sunday? Is it the Philadelphia Eagles or the San Francisco 49ers?

Perhaps you’ve heard. There’s a game on Sunday, the NFC Championship Game, and the winner moves on to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. As De La Soul once said, ‘Stakes Is High’!

49ers news: There’s a new twist involving Jimmy Garoppolo’s return.

Though the Eagles are currently favored, the Niners are no easy out. Expect San Francisco’s best shot.

How about this for a twist? There was a brief moment where we didn’t know if Philadelphia would see Brock Purdy or Jimmy Garoppolo under center.

Come again? Say what?

ESPN’s Adam Schefter had formerly reported that there was a chance Jimmy G might return for San Francisco’s Divisional Round Game. As you know, that didn’t happen. Here we are several days later, and Kyle Shanahan stated this past Monday that he doubts Garoppolo will play this week.

That’s good enough for us. Now, back to our previously scheduled program, meditation about this Eagles team and what we might see during the coming days.

Eagles news: This Brandon Graham clip will place a smile on your face.

Okay, now that we have all of that off our chests, let’s try this again. This is a game. It’s supposed to be fun, so we’ll calm down and enjoy the journey.

Nothing would be worse than seeing the Eagles win Super Bowl LVII, looking back, and remembering that all we did was stress. To help ourselves on this front, we enlisted the help of a man who doesn’t stress about anything, Eagles legend Brandon Graham.

Check him out as he took the field for the coin toss during the Divisional Round on Saturday.

See? Mix a little of B.G. into any situation, and it becomes impossible to stress about anything. Have we told you that we missed him last season? Raise your glasses, both real and imagined. Here’s to a couple of sacks by Number 55 on Sunday.
