  • Eagles Superbowl Favorites again, lol. Win offseason 3 years in a row!

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...bowl-favorites



    The Philadelphia Eagles went out and addressed their biggest need via trade by acquiring middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans from the Houston Texans for a fourth round draft pick.</p>

    This move instantly makes the Eagles favorites for the Super Bowl from the NFC.</p>

    Ryans
    was voted 2006 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Award after recording
    155 tackles, but it was his two Pro Bowl appearances in 2007 and 2009
    that catapulted him to stardom.</p>

    An Achilles injury in 2010 cost
    him the whole second half of that season, but it was his lackluster play
    in 2011 coupled with defensive coordinator Wade Phillips 3-4 scheme that ultimately got the 28-year-old linebacker shipped to Philly.</p>

    Eaglesí coach Andy Reid said in a statement obtained by the Philadelphia Inquirer:</p> <blockquote>

    DeMeco
    is a proven Pro Bowl linebacker in this league and we're excited to be
    able to plug him into the middle of our defense. He's been the signal
    caller and a leader on a very good Texans defense for the last several
    years. He's a tough, instinctive football player and he'll be a great
    fit for our team.
    </p></blockquote>

    These kinds of stories couldn't be any better for the Giants.

    This has been a great day for Giants football. One of our biggest threats in the NFC basically had their spines broke by Goodell today, the Jets took all of the attention of the NY media away from us, and the Eagles are already drawing a huge target on their backs.

    Another year where we'll quietly win the division and quietly make a playoff run is in the making I hope.

            The Eagles should be pretty good this year.

            I mean obviously, DeMeco Ryans is the best linebacker in the league, and by far, the MLB position is the most important position in football. That will get them over the hump. He instantly makes Michael Vick a tougher quarterback.

              It's great. Somehow the Giants are perpetual underdogs. It's awesome motivation for this team.

              Victor Cruz said on ESPN Live today that ELi was one of the best, if not THE best QB in the league. Wonder if the media will make a big deal out of it, say how Eli is def. not the best, and then Eli proves them wrong this year.

                Yeah man, the only reason the Texans were willing to trade him for a 4th is that they are complete idiots. If they weren't so stupid they'd know they just traded away the best player in the game! Gosh! What a bunch of morons, they just handed our rivals the Lombardi!

                  So it's settled then. The next super bowl will be between the Eagles and Jets... both teams with undeafeated records... ending up in a Philadelphia win, after Vick is declared MVP and a Demigod. The dream team will be hailed as the best team ever, due to their play and touchdown celebrations.... and they won't do a music video called 'we are the dream team', but the rest of the league will unite to celebrate the Eagles in their rendition of 'we are the world... hail to the dream team'. Oh, and the Lombardi trophy will be renamed the Andy Reid trophy, which will be redesigned to reflect his stature.

                  I can't wait until next season already, and see them fall flat on their face... LOL.

                      Weren't last year's Eagles supposed to be the Dream Team?

                      Is anyone aware that Ryans' production has decreased the last 2 seasons? Why else trade him for a 4th round pick?

                        Same thing every off season - some 'sexy' team like the Eagles, Cowboys, Jets who have flashy, back-page-filling players. These teams may be loaded with talent, but they seem to lack that cohesiveness that makes them come together as a 'team' to work 'with' each other and not 'against' each other (example: Jets final game where Holmes pulled a hissy and 'benched himself').

                        Without sounding like a homer, the Giants should be a testament to any team that when you're 7-7 and everyone's ready to pull the plug on you, you can overcome it. Question is: how bad do you want it, are you willing to put your own vanity and superstar-ship aside and humble yourself and do whatever it takes to win?

                        From the above mentioned 3 teams, a lot of it has to do with their coaches. There's just seems to be no structure an discipline - of course, when you have TC as a guideline for this. If these guys don't want to play for coaches who hold them accountable, if coaches are going to treat their teams like it's a train ride down CandyLand (Rex!), if all they care is about being 'hot' and media-worthy, start out strong, but fizzle mid-way or towards the end because they can't handle the pressure of their own awesomeness that the media is bestowing on them, then they'll never get a trophy.

                        As a Giants fan, I'm pleased at how we handle ourselves both on and off the field. Let the Jets have every splashy backpage, let WFAN talk about them to no end - I don't care. Even after we beat the Cowboys, won the division and made the playoffs, WFAN STILL couldn't stop bellyaching about the massive trainwreck the Jets became and the entire Holmes/Sanches alleged locker room feud.

                        I said all that to say this - all these mouthpieces can predict all they want. It's the men who take that field and where they're mindset is at that determines the outcome

                          Are you kidding? As the confetti from winning XLVI was still falling they were predicting the 2012 season and of course the Giants were not on the radar.

                            To be fair, there are a lot of 'sexy picks' that float around prior to the season. GB was one 2 years ago and it turned out to be true. A lot of predictions from reputable sources, one is bound to be true.

                            What I don't understand is why the Eagles will always be one of those teams. Is it because they're way overdue for a superbowl victory and it seems logical, or is it because people refuese to learn that they can't get over the hump?

Ex-convict leads city to it's first Superbowl Championship...just reeks of a movie-esque plot.
