    A subset of our fans have an inferiority complex when it comes to the Eagles. We went through this with their Dream Team, and again when they hired Chip Kelley, and again last season when they started off 3-0. It's completely irrational and completely bizarre.

    BTW, I am highly trained in troll detection and can confidently say there are at least 3 active members on this board that are closeted Eagles fans.

    And at every one of those times...i sat here and called the flaws out and correctly predicted their demise.

    I am not worried now either but they are doing it in a much better eay than those previous instances. We are still the better team, imo. Zeke's suspension really tests that though.

    Yes and neither was Dak, neither was Dlaw, and neither was Frederick.

    The resident experts here disagreed and were resoundingly WRONG.

    So they traded a 3rd and their 2nd round pick from 2014 for Darby.. a guy with 2 career interceptions. Now he may be an upgrade over what they have but a 2nd and another high 2nd round pick (who is garbage admittedly) is a lot to give up. Darby has also been hurt all year.

    Meanwhile...Dallas' 2nd round pick in 2014 is DLaw.

    And our first that year was Zach Martin while the eagles took Marcus Smith.

    Yes, the eagles are schooling the cowboys alright.

    Philly has hustled and shuffled draft picks and cap space around to fill in the cracks and grab named players. This is a short term concept that will leave them with less resources in the long term. Mortgaging the future. It may pay off for them this year or 2018, but ultimately, they're Chip Kelly'ing themselve all over again.

    I try not to fall into the subculture of this board as the reality state of this fan base. I won't allow my mind to believe we are this ******* soft. I've actually have a tally of punk *** candy apple weak minded fans. If I see one of you in any sort of congratulatory posture as if you back the team when we beat KC..and the philthy "empire" crashes....I'm coming for your heads.

    It's weak minded to note that the Eagles are now likely the favorite in the division and likely the conference and that there was a huge shift in power in the division largely because one franchise had a smart and aggressive offseason and the other had a pretty cruddy offseason following their plan of cheapness and low quality FA signings?

    Anything is possible. If Miller breaks Wentz's leg this weekend, certainly, things could change. But if we are in a situation where we kind of need their best player to get hurt to maybe win the division, isn't that kind of telling about the type of team we have?

    Some of you have your anger misplaced. You are angry at fans thinking they are really closet Eagles fans when in reality, those people are more angry at our FO and their failures than the fact they "like" the Eagles. You want to be angry? Be angry at your franchise that half assed it this past offseason and turned a 13-3, #1 seed into a team that's probably going to be fighting for their playoff lives in a WC battle.
