As we all know the Eagles season didn't quite play out the way we thought it would. Coming off of last season's 8-8 record, this year was bound for improvement. Man, were we wrong. Watching an Eagles game was extremely painful at times this season. Even our friends from Cover Sports and the awesome banner above couldn't help make the experience a little better. In this current season, due to injuries, poor play and several other intangibles, the Eagles are currently 4-9.
This season provided us with several coaching moves, player moves and offensive line shuffles. As for the coaching, this season more than ever, Philadelphia has been begging to "Fire Andy". This season brought us some positives towards the future with Nick Foles and Bryce Brown. With the firing of Juan Castillo and Jim Washburn, the major question comes to mind, will Andy Reid be back?
The 2012-2013 season is still underway, with the Eagles playing tonight at Lincoln Financial Field vs Cincinnati at 8:20pm. Right now the Eagles are fighting for pride, and/or a high draft pick. The season has brought Eagles fans to an all-time low, to a point where some fans prefer to lose for a higher pick. Here in Philadelphia, we give our hard earned money and time to support the team we love, and when that team doesn't compete, we get angry. Right, Santa?
Philadelphia gets a bad reputation because we boo when our "product" doesn't produce. In the real world, when something goes wrong, you don't keep letting it happen and says it okay. Philadelphia is the only city that gives the players what they give us. If they give us their all, we cheer; if they give a minimal effort (Jason Babin) we then boo and probably say hurtful things. That shouldn't define us, because in the end I wouldn't want to live anywhere else, and I am certain that you agree.
With the season being another disappointment, what do you think needs to happen? Leave us your comments in the section below on whether we need to blow up the team, or just fix some things. Do we need new coaching? Should we lose for a higher pick? Are you planning on drinking until it feels like 2004 again? Like our sweet banner? You can make your own banner and hope for a better season in 2013. Please tell us what the best fans in the world are feeling.
