Eli Manning hasn't called Eagles Super Bowl champions

Eli Manning hasn't called Eagles Super Bowl champions

The NFC East is a mess in 2018. That's a fact.

Just because the Eagles, Redskins, Giants, and Cowboys have all gotten off to a rough start to the season, that doesn't change another fact: the Eagles are reigning Super Bowl champions.

The Eagles players may want to remind Eli Manning of that fact this evening when they take on the Giants up at MetLife Stadium on Thursday Night Football.

Check out this nugget from today's New York Post:

It is accurate to call the Giants’ next opponent the Super Bowl champion Eagles, a designation that is difficult for the Giants to utter aloud.

“I haven’t referred to them as that, I don’t think,’’ Eli Manning said, and laughter ensued.

Eagles fans can hate on Manning for his performances on the field as much as they want. He has been a bad quarterback as of late and for much of his career. But in Manning's defense, he is pretty jovial with the media in the locker room. Eli's media battle with Lil Wayne has been kind of hilarious. 

A media battle with OBJ may not be far down the road. The Super Bowl champs should help see to it this evening.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 

Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.
