I Never Once Doubted You, Eagles

I Never Once Doubted You, Eagles

The Eagles did it.

On Sunday night, as throughout the entire season, they had to overcome a lot. Injuries. Adversity. Tom Brady. Bill Belichick. The refs. The league. The oddsmakers. Cris Collinsworth. That Patriots defensive coordinator who I could have sworn reached the second round of Wing Bowl before vomiting out. Whatever cheating the Pats attempted that we’ll find out about in three years. And most of all, everyone who said or wrote something nasty about Philadelphia fans throughout our run, or picked against us.

But we did it. And after Sunday night, I don’t know if I can ever be negative again. It’s a strange feeling, but a great one.

Over the years, I’ve been skeptical about the Eagles, and the chances they would ever, in any of our lifetimes, win a Super Bowl.

I didn’t trust Jeffrey Lurie, and may or may not have said a few hundred times that the team would never hoist a Lombardi Trophy as long as he was owner. We lived through all of McNabb’s choking, the eras of Mike McMahon, Kevin Kolb, Sam Bradford, various Detmers, the Dream Team, General Manager Chip Kelly and not getting Marcus Mariota.  

But this year was different. And really, we should have known this back at the start of the season. That the Eagles would lose MVP-caliber Carson Wentz and not miss a beat. That Nick Foles would win the Super Bowl, beating Tom Brady while both throwing and catching touchdown passes. That Eagles fans would turn multiple road games into home games, the Super Bowl included.

I should have known that Doug Pederson would turn out to be a genius, with not a single one of the negative coaching traits of his mentor Andy Reid. That Howie Roseman would throw a perfect game of an offseason. That Jeffrey Lurie would emerge as a very good owner, and even better dancer?

But somehow, some way, all of that happened. The Eagles are world champions, and there will be a parade.  

So congrats Doug Pederson, you earned this:

In all seriousness, I’ve been told by a lot of you over the years that I’ve made you laugh and helped get you through some of those tough times, and bad losses, and hopeless stretches. I’m happy to have done that, and am continually in awe of this town and these fans. Enjoy this, everyone!

Anyway, what the hell is going on with Markelle Fultz? Have you seen some of those shots? The Sixers should be ashamed!

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.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
