I mean every Pat fan I have encountered believes they have already won the Super Bowl. Did we not all see how close last year's game was? I think it is safe to say that this Eagles team is way better then last year's Carolina team.
It gets old after awhile to always hear that Philadelphia fans stink and that we have no loyalty. On the most part we know more about our team then other cities and we show by far the most passion. Sure we may boo sometimes but that is only constructive criticism!
(dones flame suit)
I grew up in NE and now am living just outside Philly for a few years. I will agree that Philly fans are knowledgeable when it comes to the Eagles, but that is it! I have a lot of good friends who have lived here all their lives and are huge Eagles fans. I have watched the way they handled the 3 straight NFC Championship losses and how they handled things this year. You'll should apoligize to Andy Reid and MacNabb for all the Sh*t you have talked about them in past years, it is unreal. Now they are the toast of the town... I just don't see the loyalty.
I also think it is obsurd that the Eagles fans compare finally getting to a Super Bowl to the Sox reversing the curse, it isn't even in the same league. Basically, I have a deep hatred
of the Eagles, not because of the team or the players, but because of the fans.
I also found it a bit appalling last night when I watched the news. The top story was the Eagles getting off the plane and what the weather was like at their Sawgrass, Fl hotel. Aren't our boys dying over in Iraq for some elections that took place yesterday? I have no doubt that was the top story on the news in every other city in the country. I was in Boston during the World Series and it wasn't the entire content of the news casts... and it certainly wasn't the WEEK before the game!
Sorry, enough ranting from me
It should be a fun game to watch, especially because I already know the outcome
