Cheering Against the Eagles?!?

Let's go Browns, Redskins, and Cowboys! Man I hope the Falcons win out. Are you kidding me people?!?

The Eagles winning is a good thing, right? Eagles' fans are supposed to cheer for the Eagles to win, right? It sucks when the Eagles don't win. Your Sunday night and Monday morning become unbearable following a loss.

If you are a fan, all of the above should have some truth to it. Yet it seems that there are a large number of Eagles' fan that are hoping for the Eagles to lose these next 3 games. You call yourself a fan, yet you want the Eagles to lose...WTF?!?

These so-called fans cheer for losses because they want to see the Eagles rebuilt. Time to blow this team up and rebuilding won't happen unless the playoffs are again missed. I respond, what makes you so sure that a new coach and players will guarantee victories? What happens if the rebuilding process just drags on and on, more than 1 or 2 years?

As an Eagles' fan are you ready to have meaningless football season after season (or even 1 season) in hopes that eventually the Eagles can return to playoff contenders (which they are now)?

Reid may have his faults, but what makes everyone so sure that Spags or Cowher is the answer? Who knows how successful Spags will be as a head coach. And if you look at Cowher's coaching record there are plenty of down seasons mixed in with the success (just like Reid).

So why not enjoy this late season Eagles' success. The NFL off-season is long enough already. We don't need to be wishing for the season to end on December 28. Where is the fun in watching the playoffs without having the Eagles to cheer for?

I cheer against the Eagle's because the sooner the heartbreak, the better. Whether some Monday night in early December or early in January, we'll lose.

We're not talking about blowing up the team. We're talking about a number 2 draft-round pick for an oft-hurt, inaccurate, inconsistent, ego-ridden QB. (And we'll throw in a head coach for free!)

you ask:

by "meaningless football seasons" , you mean the last 75 years, right?
and since when did "needing atlanta to lose" make us contenders?
