Football team?
He can't manage his own family!
It's like nothing is important to this guy.

And now they're done with the chumps for awhile, and about to face some winning teams.

Forget it.

They will never win anything as long as they keep reid(junkie's for kids) and mcnabb(most overated qb like rush limbagh said). It just goes to prove the old saying that goes with all sports teams in philly, " WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR".

You can't make chicken salad out of chicken shat.....the Eagles are just not a good team.From the top, to the bottom.BUT, can talk a good game...I can still remember the players before the season talking about playing the poor NFC north....well so far they lost to lowly Green Bay...who is so low the are 5-1 and Da Bears who even though they have a bad record, they still beat the Eagles, actually shoved it 97 yds down the tough Jimmy Johnson defense's throat, I m tired of hearing about his defenses. HE IS OLD NEWS, he "D" stinks face it..
bottom line another year and no super bowl and teams like Green Bay who IS the 2nd youngest team in the league look promising for the future...not the Eagles...they are 10 yrs away from rebuilding a team they have nt strarted rebuilding yet...oh by the way,,,," CRY EAGLES CRY, ON THE ROAD TO MISERY "

They won't get rid of McNabb, it's all about race in that cesspool. Reid is a disgrace, his priorities are all screwed up, his kids are a mess, they are never going to straighten out. Eagles, always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

BossyGillis -- I am afraid that you are exactly right. Philadelphia owners and team management (because of the liberal media) are so desperate for a black QB hero that they have sacraficed most things that make the game of football great.

Consequently, it is the fans who suffer and I've finally, after many years, jumped ship and gone to the Cowboys with T.O.(and he's as black as McSlobb), except T.O. is a football player and McSlobb is a whiny, race-baiting, over-hyped failure.

You know I can handle the comments about how bad the eagles are but your non-sense about the Packers being so young..c'mon, Brett Farve is playing well for now, he will soon turn into the interception king he is better known for..I am not a Packers hater like you are an Eagles hater, I just disagree with you (on the packers future) Eagles are bad, but I am a true fan and will watch with hope.

I agree that the Eagles Such. But you drug Andy Reid's family into your post. That's really uncalled for. you show bad judgement.Eagles and Reid's family should remain separate issues.

big E ,,,I am sure you are a true FAN,,,,as I am sure you know alot of eagle fans destroy any hope of discussing with reason the Eagles & the NFL.
I am surrounded by idiot Eagle fans who do nothing but SCREAM how awesome they are and everyone else totally sucks.Just go to the Linc to watch a game,,,,I rest my case...in so far as the Packers are concerned,,,ok,,,riddle me this,,,who will go to a super bowl sooner,,GB or Philly ?
The Pack has a future,even if it s with Aaron Rodgers,,,the Pack runs a "system' zone running & west coast passing....
The pack can actually win NOW !
The Colts won oin the past with no running attack, but only won the SB with one,,,The ravens won w/out an "O" The Packer's "D" is tough...but,,they ll only go 8-8 this year...the clock will strike 12 soon enough..

Hey nickinpa04...AMEN! I am a diehard Cowboys fan and have been since 1979 and lived here all my life. I am tired of my boys, who play football, not being able to wear their Cowboys jerseys to school after a good weekend of football for fear of retribution and violence from their eagle fan classmates with '0' I.Q.. The Eagles are losers, always will be. Get over it. And the next time I hear another Eagles fan ask me 'when was the last time the f'n Cowboys won a championship game' I'll get my GOT 5??? t-shirt out!!!

Nick no doubt the pack will be in the Superbowl before the Eagles. It is tuff being an Eagles fan and I have no excuses for the "bad fans" that the Eagles seem to attract. However if you read some of these posts, you will see there are bad fans all around..albeit a few more here in Philly. People really HATE the Eagles.

Hey! It's da iggles! I won a ten dollar bet with one minute to go saying that since it was the iggles they would lose by the time the clock ran out.... and so Chicago marched down the field. Talk about snatching defeat from the jaws of victory... That's why I watch the iggles with one eye on something else, don't ever want to get too disappointed!

Big E, I would say that you must be in the minority. Till this year I had never seen a professional game and when my brother, who is a Dolphins fan (eegads!) offered me to go with him to see my 'boys play the Dolphins in Miami, I jumped at the chance. The tailgate party was a blast and 1/3 of the fans there were cowboys fans BUT the worst I got from a Dolphins fan about my Tony Romo jersey was 'my condolences'!!!! I could NEVER go to Philly to see my 'boys play the Eagles and live to tell about it. And I sure wouldn't endanger the life of my 14 year old son who has a Jason Witten jersey. That's just sad. We try to teach our kids to be independent thinkers, to stand up for what they believe in and then they see people behave like the Eagles fans do (well, not you). The Dolphins fans told me that the last time Eagles fans were in Miami, some of them were urinating over the 400 level onto the fans below! Sorry, but that's just wrong and ignorant!

I cannot argue your point, but many people assume we are all like that. I took my son to a Monday night game in Philly against Dallas (about 3 yrs ago)..that was a big mistake! all the people I defended proved me wrong. People screaming the F word right in front of my 9yr old son...I was so mad and disappointed. As a parent I would never subject my son to that again and hope he knows how to be a good sport/fan. Well looks like as a cowboys fan you have a lot to look forward to, enjoy the season.

Big E...my hat is off to you. You are a class act. I will definitely make sure, the next time I trash Philly fans, to state "except for Big E" in Reading. Btw, I am from Reading too but for some reason, it shows me being from Hershey...

Not to change the subject, but to commend Big E and K Leigh for their intelligence and good common sense. It just goes to show that these threads aren't all about fighting, cursing etc.
It's good to know that there are still a few decent adults around that can carry on a good conversation.
