The National Media So Doesn't Get Us

Posted December 28, 2012

It bogles my mind just how little the national media understands us Philly fans. If you were to listen to their narrative, Lurie will lop Reid's head off at the end of the season because the savage, degenerate Philly fans are demanding it. They miss the entire point. The NFL is a "what have you done for me lately" business.

Reid has only 1 playoff win since 2005 and has gone 12-19 in his last two seasons. That is the REAL reason he's getting s**t-canned at the end of the year (then again with Lurie you never know). 

 

If you were to listen to the national media's story, they demonize and dehumanize Philly. They think we don't appreciate what he has accomplished here. Erroneous on all accounts. If you were to walk around Philly and ask any fan they'll tell you the same. We appreciate what he has done here, but LATELY he ain't getting it done. I don't care if it's New York, Philly, or Jacksonville. If you start regressing, then you get the boot.

I'd be willing to bet if this were some other coach they'd be singing a different tune. It's almost as if the rules are different in regards to their treatment of anything Philly.
