Where have you been, this entire thread seems to have turned into an Eagles thread. I picked them to go to the NFC Championship game and face the Cowboys.
AJM, I why can't you understand the Superbowl argument? It's simple. The Eagles have never won a Superbowl. Cowboys fans take great enjoyment from that. I guarantee you that if the Eagles win a Superbowl, they'll get more respect here. The Giants get it. The hated Redskins get it. But the Eagles, they're perennial losers, even if they've gone to a few championship games in recent years.
And for the record, I'm 32 and most of us here are in our 20's and 30's, and our last Superbowl was only 10 years ago. That's not that far off.
Sorry, you just don't get bragging rights around here until you win the big one. That's just how it is. In Dallas, we hold our teams to a higher standard.
