Ok folks.. here's what the Run of the Mill Patriots fan doesn't get about the Philadelphia Eagles Franchise. We're the Ugly Step Sister of the NFL. We are the TEAM That is JUST GOOD ENOUGH TO GET Beat in the Playoffs. We Routinely make a habit of Beating championship Clubs in spots when it doesn't count for a Trophy. We beat the 90 Giants. The Skins in their Hey Day. The Cowboys during their Resurgence. The Montana Led Niners. The List goes on and on and on. We are The KINGS of winning games in the Regular season against teams who people consider the best and then we go on our routine 10-6, 11-5 run with a We coulda shoulda woulda gone all the way. That's "WHY" it was so disheartening to Eagles fans to Learn that POSSIBLY the Patriots may have played some Dirty Pool in the BOWL. There's not a serious Eagles fan in the world who did NOT completely respect the New England Patriots going into that game. We knew you were a heck of a ball club and it would take mistake free football to come out with a W . Were we disappointed? Sure considering how long it took to climb the mountain. But that All being said... Given the HISTORY of this franchise and the HISTORY of the NFL with supposedly "unbeatable" teams.. Don't kid yourselves if you don't see this as the Stars are Aligned Stumbling block for the PATS. They just clinched the Division. The Colts are two games back and floundering. Our Starting QB is on the Bench. You've destroyed teams who have handled the McNabb led Eagles handily. What else do you want? Do you want a Highway sign that says BEWARE DANGER AHEAD? Boston and Philly aren't that much different.. There's a HUGE Group who were happy to see Schill and Francona get their Rings... I'd say 70% especially amongst the Irish are Phils First .. BoSox Second.. Then to have you guys adopt the Black Cloak of Vader... it's just wrong. You must pay for your transgressions. It's not personal. It's just an Order from the Football Gods. Sorry to end your hopes.
