REGARDLESS of how often we show it, so-called experts keep misunderstanding it. Even when we slow it down, it’s still too fast for them. Let me say this in small words, and plain English:
Dear NFL, You can’t fuck with the Eagles.
Time Machine. Last year. Week 6. Best team in the league, but they kept saying we hadn’t played anybody. Okay. So in front of a national audience, during prime time, we went to the Carolina Panthers house, kicked in their door, dropped their body in a box, put a bow on it, and strolled the fuck out. People gave us credit for the win, but still didn’t buy in.
We spent the next five weeks averaging 37 points per game. Hit a snag with a loss to Seattle and pundits were convinced that the tough part of our schedule had caught up to us. Finally they would be right about us.
With a game against the Rams next, “experts” were already writing us off. We responded by shooting it out with L.A. Then we lost our QB to a season-ending injury. The Rams then took a 35 – 31 lead. No problem. Our back-up QB led two scoring drives, and we were up 37 – 35. We salted the win away with a fumble return for a TD.
At that point we had secured a playoff berth, but since our starting QB was out, idiots counted us out and figured us for a first round exit. We responded by locking down the first round bye. Still it wasn’t enough to convince them.
We entered the playoffs with the best record in the NFL, but were underdogs in the divisional playoff game. So we took out the Falcons in a war of attrition. Did we convince anyone? Nope.
We entered the NFC championship as underdogs. What happened? In front of the free world, we butchered the Vikings like pigs. Now come on, we’d get respect for sure, right? Nope!
We entered the Super Bowl as the underdog. After all, we were playing “the goat”, right? We slaughtered him, skinned him, salted him, and hung him to cure. To this day I don’t know which is the bigger trophy, the Lombardi or Brady’s carcass. NOW! Now we’d get our due respect, right? Right? Wrong.
Week one of the new season, we were underdogs versus the Falcons team that we’d ground down in the playoffs. The result? We ground them down. Again. Now are we taken seriously? LMAO! NOPE!
It’s hilarious that these so-called experts, can’t see what has now been branded into history’s flesh. We’re the best. Even when running on reserves, we’re the best. How much clearer can we make it? Let me say it one more time: Dear NFL, you can’t fuck with the Eagles.
