EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - New York Giants linebacker Mark Herzlich was an Eagles fan while attending Conestoga High School, so few people are more excited about Sunday night's game at Lincoln Financial Field between the two NFC East rivals.
"It's one of the best rivalries in football anywhere," Herzlich said. "To be part of it and to know what the Philly fans think and to be on the other side of it is pretty neat for me."
Actually, just being on the football field is a great experience for the second-year linebacker from Boston College. Herzlich missed the entire 2009 college football season because of Ewing's sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. He signed with the Giants as an undrafted rookie free agent on July 28 of last year.
