I hear you, but I am starting to see some definite movement towards giving more positive season projections for the Eagles.

Like in the message I posted yesterday, where Bill Simmons (The Sports Guy) is showing the Eagles as the NFC representative in the SB.

Not that it matters to us Eagle loyalists what the media says, but it always better to read positive views of your favorite team than one that is denigrating them.

YourPalChrisMal is an unknown quantity at this point

Wow, how sweet was that!

The only problem with it is that he says the "Giants are a mirage" and then ends the story. That sounds like a bit of fan-speak that taints the article a bit. Obviously he probably didn't have room to expand on why the other team's won't be as good, but to just say "The Giants are a mirage" is a little weak.

But that's just nitpicking. That was totally cool.

FRESH is on a distinguished road

I loved it. And he'll probably take some heat for denouncing some of the mulet heads in the media. I just wish he'd called them out by name, instead of referencing their predictions. But it's about all we could ask for.

And VFK, you and I can go round and round on this, but face it, I'm obviously not the only one who sees it. Fans, members of the media and even the players themselves see and feel the change. You can dismiss it if you want, doesn't really matter.
OK, let's try this again...
