Before I get to the point of simply rooting for the big plays, big hits, and spoilers.... I'm going to think back to last year and cross my fingers. (See below.) Personally, Im not ready to throw in the towel yet, even though I happen to agree with a lot of the harsh comments out there. And I know that 99% of you on this site will also root for the Birds regardless of their record. Hell - I still wear the Eagles jersey I bought when they were 3-13. (Charlie Garner by the way)
My (perhaps warped) logic: Last year, the Vagiants lost their 1st game 45-35 to the Cowboys. They also incurred injuries to Umenyiora, Jacobs, and Eli. Eli separated his shoulder during the game, and the NYG defense was horrible. Then the next week at Green Bay wasnt that much better. Bad penalties and 21 unanswered points by the Packers made the Vagiants 0-2 for the first time in over a decade. People were calling for Coughlin's head, questioning Eli, and calling the team the most dysfunctional team in the league.
And we all know how they finished the season.
So my question is: "Right now, are we better than what they were, at this point last year?"
I hope so.
