    I am sure many of you, just like me, threw a temper tantrum when Brandon Graham swiped the ball out of Tom Brady's hands giving the Eagles their first title in forever and then in one moment, emboldened one of the more sad franchises to take a step forward and win a Super Bowl.

    Thoughts for their upcoming season and how it relates to the Cowboys?

    I am watching the replay of the Atlanta playoff game on NFLN now. Good stuff to watch.

    I hope the Eagles team bus catches on fire while falling off a cliff, twice.

    They won’t win 13 games again. But they have to be the clear favorite in the NFCE.

    I do not believe they will make it back to the SB. I think Minnesota, with Cousins and that defense and a healthy Cook back are the best team in the NFC.

    Bet365 has the Cowboys as 3:1 to win the NFC Championship and the Eagles at 13:2. That should tell you something right there.

    Eagles are an above average team but probably the worst Super Bowl team so far this decade. They’ll be in the mix this year and the division won’t be decided until the final week.

    After this year their cap situation blows up and they’ll be having a fire sale in Philly.

    Well, yes, but obvious wishes aside, I was hoping there would be a better level of discussion besides this or the empty emoji trophy case thing which no longer applies.

    They have a foundation, GM and coach that is going to keep them contenders for at least a decade.

    I'd wager they'll win 2 more SBs before any other team wins 2 more SBs.

    I guess that means you are not equipped?

    I dont know about you, I watch everything I can so I can develop a real perspective, not a myopic fan view.

    Sorry I just hate the Eagles. Their coaching was able to win with Foles. I think they will fall off, but I think they'll be good for a few more years.

    I was really just joking. Although I don’t want to talk about them.

    I actually live near Philadelphia, so sadly I watch every single eagles game. So unfortunately I talk a lot of eagles football with my co workers.

    1, While it may hair lips the governor, I preferred the Eagles to win the Super Bowl over the patriots. They have had enough success for me. I am also not threatened by the Eagles winning.

    However having said that, if you think they are one and done, it may be so. But Wentz will not be the reason they don't repeat. An unbiased look at Wentz should tell you this guy is for reals.

    2. I think they win the East. Injuries discount this OPINION.

    I loathe the Eagles with a passion.

    I especially hate their fans. I cringe when I hear the Rocky song, even when not associated with their stupid and cheap tie-in on kickoffs and what not.

    That still does not stop me from studying them.

    Like it or not, over the past couple of decades, they are better. They have won more titles in the division and now have what everyone said they would never get, which is a SB title.

    I said when they drafted him they'd go on a ridiculous series of titles.

    I no longer hear the laughter.

    They accepted the son, they get blessed by the father. Hence Nick friggin Foles taking over late and still winning one.

    They'll win at least 5 or 6 more. Maybe 7.

    It could have been us. It should have been us. It was set up for us.

    I, for one, danced around the bar for joy in a Carson Wentz jersey. And I'm a diehard Cowboys fan.

    That's how much I truly hate the evil terrorist organization that is the skulking Cheatriots.

    From Chip Kelly to SB. If that doesn't convince Jerry, we're doomed.

    I took the Eagles winning that game hard. It is basically the one thin string I would ever grasp upon that Dallas could always throw in their face over what is pretty much a generation.

    I could always count on Eagles futility. Even when they would kill the early Johnson teams or the Campo Cowboys, there was always the overall lack of a title that held them back and was like an ace up the sleeve.

    The "in a Carson Wentz jersey" may have been a bridge too far, Risen. However if this is about a lifestyle change, then you go girl!

    I don't like the Eagles, but I disagree that the Eagles are the worst Super Bowl team this decade. On the contrary, I think they're probably the most complete team to win a title in recent years.
    Likely excellent QB play, elite in the OL (comparable to Dallas) & DL, good back 7, good weapons on offense.
