Why should anyone be down about this upcoming season? If your down then you're expectations are too high to begin with. Perhaps you haven't watched this team the past two seasons, or maybe you just couldn't comprehend what you saw, but it was basically awful football from a team EXPECTED TO MAKE A SUPERBOWL RUN. This season the Eagles have turned the page to a NEW CHAPTER. It's time to disregard the past and accept the future. The Eagles are a team in a rebuilding process. Accept it and watch the games like you would watch a high school game. Just enjoy football because its football! I guarantee you will feel better about the game that way. Back in 98 I joined the military, and at that point it became extremely difficult to watch Eagles games. In fact I only got to watch one game that season. It was a Thursday Night Game against the Rams. It was a horrible game, but to me I was just happy to see some football! Pretty much everyone on my wing was pissed I took over the television to watch that game, but it didn't matter to me. It was the only chance I was going to get to watch my team and I was not going to allow anyone to stop me. This is the type of mentality one should have for this season. Just be happy to watch your team progress and develop. Stop whining now when you should have been whining a season ago! When the Dream Team fell on their faces that's when people should have been complaining, but to complain now even before the season starts just seems silly. After all what is anyone expecting the Eagles to do this season? If you are expecting much then you are lying to yourself. How can anyone expect much out of a 4-12 team with more holes in it than Swiss cheese? Just sit back this season. Relax and enjoy football for the first time in probably a long time, because if you are placing expectations on this team in March you're an idiot! If you're crying about this team already in March then you probably haven't been paying attention to what's been going on for the past two years. Get a grip and just enjoy the ride. Once the wins start coming, and the expectations go up, you won't have this opportunity to just enjoy the game a football.
