Philadelphia Eagles Time Has Come

Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles for winning this year's Super Bowl. While that may sound like music to our ears and maybe food for thought, but you know it feels good if you're a Philadelphia fan. That's something I've been saying year-after-year for almost 50 years to myself, family and friends. Well the Eagles winning the Super-Bowl statement isn't 100% true yet, the Eagles are positioning themselves to make multiple Super Bowl runs for quite a few years to come. I've been telling my sons for a couple of years now that the seasons from 2018 to 2023 may be one of the greatest sports eras in the history of Philadelphia sports. There's no better way to start the next great sports era run in Philadelphia sports than with the run that our Eagles have been on. One reason why I joke with my sons about our Philly teams winning championships over the next five years is because my wife and I are moving and it would be just our luck. I only say that because I had to watch our Philadelphia 76ers win the “83” championship after I moved out west in trying to further my basketball career. I watched our Philly teams make playoffs runs from a far distance.

 

Trying to get a real sense or pulse of Philadelphia through the national news media from out west was very difficult. Thankfully my mother did an awesome job of making me feel the heartbeat of Philly from the hundreds of dollars in phone bills. But that's okay because I was here when our Phillies gave us all some good times during the “08” season by shocking the world with a World Series championship and a parade that everyone will remember. This year the Philadelphia Eagles head push their fans passion button with such a determined season and now I'm raise the roof with a 2018 Super Bowl parents just take a night time drive around Philly and see places like Boathouse-Row, Wells Fargo Center showcasing Eagles green. Companies have gotten in on the excitement by allowing employees to wear their Eagles apparel to work. I have seen Eagle green face paintings on a numerous people during their normal commute to work. If you're paying attention to the local Philadelphia radio stations like WIP 94.1, The Fanatic 97.5 and local TV channels, the “Tried -True and Thru” real Philly fans are being heard everywhere. I firmly believe that green passion of Eagles nation has spread throughout this country.

If you ever heard anyone that scoffs, laughs or interject the phrase “Negadelphia” into a sentence towards a Philly fan, chances are they’re not a Philly fan. Those people are most likely wanna-be Philly fans that's been sitting on the fence. True Philly fans are more than just passionate people. Philly fans are knowledgeable, supporting and no-nonsense too. Yes, you can wear and root and show support for your team in Philly as long as you don't disrespect whatever is Philly around you. The Eagles are expecting true Eagle fans to tilt a neutral Super Bowl site into Eagles country, and I'm pretty sure these fans will do their best. If you know the history of the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, then you know it's just the Eagles versus the football World. The Philadelphia Eagles and fans are ready for the Super Bowl limelight to shock the world (not just this year), but a few more years to come. Some of the best years of Philly sports is just beginning again. You can see the young Sixers and Flyers are positioning themselves for a playoff run. The Phillies might be another year way but I can see a year when all four Philly teams will be winning national titles in the same year.

Yo Philly, #FlyEaglesFly

Believe it Philadelphia Eagles PhillyDilly

Our Philadelphia Eagles will be defending their Super Bowl opportunity against the Minnesota Vikings in the next chapter of a storybook season.  Whatever the book title you want to give it "From Good to Great, Next Man Up, We're All We Got – We're All We Need, the chapters are still being written game by game. Against the odds of enormous key injuries and the unbelieving of so many so-called NFL experts, the Philadelphia Eagles keep finding a way to win. When your offense, defense, and special teams lose their most impactful key players, people stepped up their doubts. Most doubts started at the beginning of the season when Owner Jeffrey Lurie went back to basics with his reorganization of leaders that started with starting with Howie Roseman. The next doubt then focused on 2nd year head coach Doug Pederson of whether he could guide their 2nd year franchise quarterback, make game time adjustments and keep a team together.

Say what you want about our Eagles coach Doug Peterson, he has his team where they should be. Because of so many injuries to key veterans, Doug Peterson has the young guys stepping up and playing very well. While so-called NFL reporting experts came out and said that "Doug Peterson is not a worthy candidate of being a head coach" his coaches and players have been proving the naysayers wrong all season. Our Eagles have won more games this year with more key player losses than any other team in the league. Doug Pederson halftime adjustments has been very good all season. One of his most notable adjustments came when it counted the most in Eagles playoff win versus the Falcons. You can believe what you want but believe me that Doug Pederson should be the NFL coach of the year.

 

While our Philadelphia Eagles may not have reached their Greatness yet, they have positively taken ownership of Doug Pederson (and the coaching staff) "Next Man Up" mentality. When you lose multiple Pro-Bowlers and All-Pro players on both sides of the ball, many of the young players have "Stepped in and Stepped Up" beyond what so many people in the national media could've ever believed. While the Eagles were still winning games after their All Pro QB Carson Wentz (who should be the NFL MVP) went down, the media disrespect really took onto a higher level. Actually, that was kind of okay because it unraveled the deeper inner core belief of what our Eagles team mentality is now of "We're All We Got – We're All We Need". Yes, it's the new version of "It's us against the world" 

The Philadelphia Eagles team couldn't have picked a better theme. This theme is something that the core group Eagles fans can and will identify with. This theme is the other part of our Philadelphia “Rocky – UnderDog” mindset. If you're a true 4 for 4 Philly fan, you know what I'm talking about. You had to have witness it the last time our Phillies, Sixers and Flyers made their championship runs. The euphoric fandemonium was felt not only throughout the city but in many other cities around the country. Philadelphia might be known as the city of Brotherly Love until competitive sports come into play. When competition happens, we shift to the "Rocky and UnderDog" mentality. Yo Eagles, you got this! Hey Eagles, the true fans that show up at home and to your road games got your back. Great and special times are ahead for this organization and the fans for many years to come.

You don't have to believe me because our Philadelphia Eagles believe that "We All We Got – We All We Need". This is not just a saying, it’s our Eagles new way of life
