    how was everyone feeling? I was in the hospital during the superbowl and was so depressed once they beat the Pats. Were a lot of the posters upset? I just have this feeling they will end up winning it again and may just make me wanna puke. I am guessing a lot of posters were happy the pats lost? I mean none of else thought the eagles would actually win a freaking SB and I still can't believe it.

    I knew the outcome would be ugly no matter what. If Patriots won, they would have gotten 6 titles, and if the Eagles won - well, yeah. Patriots winning 6 titles would have irked Steelers fans, at least.

    But I like Pederson, Foles and Wentz and so them winning was OK. didn't like the rest of the Eagles winning, but too bad.


    The Patriots have this annoying habit of beating teams in the Super Bowl when I want them to lose, and losing when I want them to win. They beat the Panthers, Rams, Seahawks and Falcons, but lost to the Giants and Eagles.

    I was OK with them winning one.

    Now let them wait another 60 or 70 years for their next one.

    I was rooting for them against the sickening Patriots, so I was pretty happy.

    My views don't make a lot of sense, to be honest. I hate seeing other NFCE teams in the SB and I will only root for them in special circumstances (like last year), but I'm actually okay in the end with the Lombardi Trophy going to the NFCE. Dallas is the greatest team in the greatest division and that's a good thing.

    Here's my ranking and rationale for who to root for in the SB:

    Obviously:
    1. Cowboys

    Spread the wealth:
    2-6. NFC teams that have never won (DET, ARI, CAR, ATL, MIN)
    7-13. AFC teams that have never won (JAC, HOU, CLE, TEN, LAC, CIN, BUF)
    14-18. NFC teams that have only won once (TB, NO, CHI, SEA, LAR)
    19-20. AFC teams that have only won once (NYJ, KCC)
    21-23. AFC teams that have won twice (BAL, IND, MIA)
    24-25. AFC teams that have won three times (OAK, DEN)

    NFCE teams that won't catch us in SB wins:
    26. Eagles
    27. Redskins

    Teams that would catch us in SB wins, in order of hatred:
    28. Packers
    29. Giants

    Teams that have already caught us in SB wins, in order of hatred:
    30. 49ers
    31. Steelers
    32. Patriots

    Philadelphia's chances of winning a Super Bowl grew as their number of appearances increased. Winning the title was a matter of when and likely sooner rather than later. I think folks in Minnesota and Buffalo rue the Eagles' eventual good fortune more than most but their franchises' opportunity of winning it all is only a matter of time also.

    I've accepted that NE is the best of this era. I don't mind if they get the titles to prove it.

    Philly on the other hand is Philly and I never wanted them to win a damn thing.

    I hate the Eagles with a passion however I was hoping their win would show Jerry what a coaching change can do for a team. Pederson taking over the dumpster fire left by Chip Kelly and turning it around quickly was proof positive that a process does not take nearly a decade to pay dividends rather a process either works or it doesn't.

    I tried closing my eyes and thinking of a scenario where they go to New Orleans and win tonight and I just can't see it. The Saints not only have a good QB and running game, but their defense plays well at home too.


    BTW: a true hater of the eagles would never root for them to win a SB

    Who said I rooted for the Eagles? I hated both teams and rooted for a tie last year. There was no team that could have won that would have made me happy but someone had to win. Since the Eagles did win, I was simply hoping it might wake Jerry up even though I knew it wouldn't. It has become very obvious he would rather be comfortable than hire a real coach and try to win it all.

    Irregardless if the Eagles win today they have hardware in this century while all we have is memories. A big part of that was hiring a coach to put it all together. Wake me when our coach's "process" pays any real dividends other than fools gold.

    You right the damage is already done. But it wasn't the goofy coach it was the genius of the Eagles GM.

    I wasn't upset. The Giants winning two was far more painful to watch.

    The Giants are my absolute least favorite team....when they won it all in '07, it was the most depressed I've felt due to the outcome of a football game....It was painful knowing that we were absolutely the better team, and beat them twice in the regular season.
