Not trying to pick on you but Joe Buck just said something along these lines during the broadcast and it brings up something that really bugs the hell out of me. 

 

This tendency to count Super Bowl victories only when talking NFL championship totals by team is a tendency that needs to stop. NFL championships won prior to 1966 are still championships. It's not those teams faults that the NFL Championship was called something different. So, with all due respect to New England and Pittsburgh (Christ what an awful sentence), their six or soon-to-be six Super Bowls still don't get them even close to Green Bay's NFL-leading 13 championships. Counting championships by Super Bowl era-only would be like counting World Series wins since 1961, or Stanley Cup's since 1967 (or NBA championships since...ABA/NBA merger). It's something that literally no one in those sports does, and we shouldn't do it in the NFL either.

AFL championships should count too! Back-2-Back AFL champs 60'-61' baby!! #OilerUp #57YearsAgoIsBetterThanNeverAtAll #Legit

It's lovely to see people get so up in arms about games that decide which bunch of guys will be giving each other head injuries and early-onset dementia.

 

Everything anyone loves is pointless.

 

I'm not going to watch the Super Bowl unless I see that the Eagles are up by 21...with 2 minutes to go. Otherwise eff this league.

Last time the Eagles went to the Super Bowl, they faced New England.

 

Along the way they, as the NFC #1 seed, won home games against the Vikings and Falcons.

 

So this is a little familiar.

They also beat the Vikings in the playoffs on their way to Super Bowl XV.

Congrats to the Eagles and their fans.

 

Let's do this, Philly. Here's to a fun Super Bowl!

I find it awful funny that in the year of pissing off all patriotic fans, it comes down to the Patriots and Eagles. New England vs. Philadelphia. You cannot get anymore patriotic than that. 

 

Just saying... Funny how all these coincidences just keep popping up every year in the NFL.

Eagles just beat the Vikings in the playoffs a lot in general.

Damn. Was hoping at the very least Minne got to play the Super Bowl at home. 

But Naturally they had to do what they do best. I really feel sorry for Vikings fans. Cubs & Red Sox at least had their "curses" their fans could pin the blame on, Minnesota has nothing.

 

Gotta give Jacksonville all the credit in the world though. They played tough as nails and even Bortles had himself a game. That QB situation for Jacksonville just got a whole lot more awkward.

 

As for Eagles - Patriots Super Bowl, like Jacksonville's win over Pittsburgh, Philly just proved that are no pushover either. Foles is as legit as Bortles or Wentz.

Looks like the Iggles have won the “Who Gets to Lose Against the Pats in SB LII” Bowl!

 

In all seriousness though, to continue the Empire metaphor, this is like Empire Strikes Back, unprepared Luke trying to beat Darth Vader. Only Luke put up more of a fight than Foles and the Eagles will.

Theory: the entire city of Philadelphia has been stuck in an extreme Groundhog Day time warp and its actually been February 6th, 2005 this whole time and February 4th, 2018 is just the clock hitting 6:00 AM again.

Meanwhile, the city of New York is taking the biggest L I've seen in a while:

Yeah I can't see national ratings not taking a really serious hit this year. 

 

Ive been saying it for weeks, though. This was easily the most dog :censored: NFL season I've ever seen (and there have been some truly AWFUL ones this decade, so that's saying something). It's only fitting that the worst NFL season I've ever seen has the worst matchup possible. 

 

Enjoy getting curbstomped by the Pats again, Eagles. I sure as hell won't be witnessing it.
