On Friday – Sunday at work we’re allowed to wear jerseys to show off our team pride. Since I don’t work on Sundays I always wear my Eagles jersey and jacket on Saturday. I was asked the very next Monday after the last game of the season why am I still wearing my Eagles gear. I simply replied “Because I’m not like a fake Dallas fan who shows up during the good times and gone when they lose”. Turns out the guy I said that to was a Dallas fan. Go figure right?
The point to that is I’m tired of always saying “there’s always next year”. I’ve said this numerous times. Because it’s true. We’re not far off though. I really feel like Chip will bring us a Super Bowl championship to Philly. He has that mojo.
We’re Philly fans though. We always have to find the need to criticize something. Anything. We absolutely loved his offense and the pace it was ran when he first came to the Eagles. Now, we’re critical. We were absolutely in love with Foles when he threw 7 TDs against Oakland calling him our franchise QB. Now people question if he’s that guy.
We’re fickle. Let’s face it. But we care deeply about this team. Every last one of us have that same exact desire. A Super Bowl ring! And no matter how you slice it, there’s nothing fickle about that.
So another year yet again where we wait until the next. And come July when training camp starts all of the headache and heartache from 2014 will be replaced with optimism and hope in 2015. And every single year we will stick out our chests with pride with our Eagles gear on display.
We’re real fans. We’re loyal fans. We’re fans that treat this team as if it were a family member. We go through the good and the bad together. We bleed green! And you will ALWAYS hear us chant…..
