I am as excited about this coming season as any Eagles fan. I gobble up every item from Sheil Kapadia and Tim McManus on Birds 24/7. I jockey between the two Philadelphia talk radio stations to catch every Eagles point. I’ll even watch the meaningless fourth pre-season game to see if Ifeanyi Momah can make the team.
Excitement is fueled by expectations; and expectations were fueled by The Statement.
It was a statement that can launch the already high hopes of excited Eagles fans into the stratosphere of unreasonable expectations. The Statement came from none other than NFL booth expert Cris Collinsworth. When asked to name his Super Bowl favorite, the first team out of his mouth was “Eagles.”
