Let's Stop Looking For Reasons To Be Angry About A Win.

Posted October 01, 2012

It's not everybody, and I know we as Philly fans can easily get into our "Negadelphia" (as G. Cobb put it) mode. We naturally assume the worst and considering what we usually get that's understandable, but I think that maybe we should start to feel thankful about these wins. Let's be frank. These are games last season the Eagles lost. They dominated many teams last season and completely faltered by the end of the game. It was so bad people were questioning their heart. Opponents were saying they quit in games. The owner has placed the coach on notice. They have had every reason to just give up, but here they are 3-1 and the only team they lost to also beat the Patriots on their home turf with Brady! Did I forget to mention they are also undefeated too? So I know we want to think Arizona suck, but in reality they are actually a good team who the Eagles caught on the wrong day at the wrong time. Besides what's more important is the grit the Eagles are showing. Coming back in three games so far. Mike Vick surviving his terrible play in two of those games to drive his team back for  wins. That's what GOOD teams have to do. They have to win games even when they aren't playing well. Sure we want to see them get better and they are (albeit not as fast as many of us would like them to), but the Eagles are 3-1 currently leading their division. The Super Bowl Champs are in a major hole. The Patriots nearly found themselves 1-3. The Steelers and many other playoff teams from last season are struggling! The Eagles are 3-1 and they haven't come close to reaching their potential. Imagine how good they can be if they actually do reach it.
