So far this decade the Philadelphia Eagles, under Andy Reid have managed to get to the NFC Championship game five times. They have managed to get to the Super Bowl only once. I have been an Eagles fan all of my life and have seen disappointment after disappointment, and I have to tell you, it's really getting to me and eating me up inside. I don't know if I'm more dissapointed that they lost, or more disappointed about who they lost to. They have managed to lose to the St. Louis Rams, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and now the Arizona Cardinals. The Eagles only managed to beat the Atlanta Falcons in 2005.
Nothing against those teams, but the odd thing about it all is that the Eagles have been the 3rd winningest franchise this decade and yet have not won a Super Bowl. They have been favored to win in four of the five championship games and managed to win only one. Each time the Eagles get to the Championship Game I start dreaming about the Eagles parade down Broad Street and how nuts this city would get, but then the Eagles come out and lay an egg. They always seem to forget what got them to the big game and start playing back on their heels.
I will always be an Eagles fan and I'm still dreaming of a Super Bowl victory, and I don't think I'm asking for a miracle for the Eagles to win one, or am I?
