Yesterday I was asked this question: “What universe are we in?” To which I replied, “Hopefully one in which we win.” It was a simple question brought about by extraordinary circumstances. Those circumstances now lend themselves toward the most anticipated Eagles season since 2005, a year after they lost the Super Bowl to the New England Patriots and appeared poised to bring...
