It's hard to be a Philadelphia Eagles fan. T.O., McNabb's cracked sternum and sports hernia, Hank Fraley, Michael Lewis, and LJ Smith all IR. Oh, and the team is a distant last in the NFC East standings. One humiliating loss after another this season...it's like being a Jets fan.

I was an Eagles fan last season too, when the team dominated game after game, punishing all comers with a ferocious defense and a QB who throws astoundingly fast and accurate passes, sometimes right through the legs of oncoming opponents. It was thrilling! The legions of Eagles fans looked around to see no one was watching and hoped and prayed to the Gridiron Gods that this Super Bowl would silence the critics.

I was a fan before Andy Reid, Donovan McNabb, and the greatest Defensive Coordinator, Jim Johnson. I remember the "other" Super Bowl.

Some blame T.O. for the disaster. He likes to grandstand and isn't much of a team player, you know. In the NFL, even superstar receivers are still on a team. Anyway! Others say, "Look, McNabb is sweating, weak---he's sick!" And he sure did stink in that game, throwing wobbly passes to non-existant receivers. Pats fans, and other jerks, will say simply that New England had the better team. On that day, in that game, they won, that's it.

This was to be the Eagles Avenging Season. NE got their damn "dynasty", blah blah, but they're done. Colts look great this year, don't they? And how about them Giants? Eagles have had their ass handed to them in almost every game.

Doesn't matter, I'm sticking with my birds. Philadelphia has the most obnoxious fans in the League, and I'm proud to be one of them, win or lose.

Have fun with that, LB. You're off my Special Friends Who Get Special Chanukah Gifts list.

Kidding! By the way, Drew Bledsoe is a pitiful QB. Dallas won by sheer luck Monday night.

At least us Jets fans expect the Jets to lose.
