I just can’t shake the disappointment from this season. I have tried to stay positive no matter what. And recently before the Panthers game I posted a blog about remaining positive. Well, that was definitely short lived. All of the little bit of optimism I was attempting to maintain a firm grip on slipped away Monday night.
The fans are screaming for something to be done and done now to change. Not that any sort of change will save this season or anything. I mean let’s face it, being 3-8, your all but done. But show us something. Acknowledge the fact that you are listening to the fans frustrations. Act like you CARE about the fans frustrations and don’t just talk about “we have to do better” Excuse me but umm, no shit.
I know it’s Jeffrey Lurie’s policy to not interact with media during the season. He believes it takes away from the team. Well, at this point does all of that really matter? I mean the way I look at it is Mr. Lurie see’s his team in a deep tailspin ready to crash into the Earth and he’s the guy that slowly steps backwards into the shadow while he’s whistling like he has nothing to do with it. Break your policy of silence during the season and acknowledge us fans. Show us you care. Braking your own personal policy of silence is not going to matter. Because you have so far broke your promise to us. And that’s bringing us a Super Bowl.
To me the Eagles are like family. That’s why I get so mad at them. Because I know what they are capable of. Under Lurie and Reid we have seen what they can do. We have no doubt had some great times. Have done things that hadn’t been done by Eagles teams in a long time, if ever. I said this before and I will continue to say this. It is the expectations that built up this fan-base and has turned into a disappointing broken promise. That’s what makes this season so hard and disappointing. Because let’s face it, if this were the Kotite era, this would be expecting. But it’s not.
I’m an Eagles fan no matter what. That will never change. I love this team. And I will continue to remind that to everyone because it’s easy to jump ship during times like this. But that does not mean I need to be happy or complacent with how they are doing. This isn’t Carolina where it’s just “eh, they will do better, I’m sure of it” Because at this rate, finishing 3-13 sounds pretty damn realistic.
So, Mr. Lurie, step out of your silent hole and do something. I hate to sound like a broken record, but it needs to be done. Before the clock hits 00:00 on Dec. 30th. You owe that much to us. You know, the ones that put money in your pockets after buying tickets and merchandise. The people who invest ridiculous amounts of money, heart and time into this train wreck of a season. You owe us way more than just silence Mr. Lurie. You are losing way more respect by not breaking your policy then if you went ahead and did break it.
