Let me start by saying I’m not a Patriots fan. I’m an Eagles fan. I’m merely an angry, bitter, disgusted Eagles fan who has tasted playoff failure for my entire life. I’ve witnessed the Eagles lose in four NFC championship games, and one Super Bowl. I was in attendance in Jacksonville during that Super Bowl XXXIX loss to the Patriots. I haven’t tasted a Super Bowl victory, and neither have any Eagles fans. Instead, I’ve had to suffer through watching the Giants win two Super Bowls in the last four years. I didn’t sign up for this.
I’ve taken a couple of days to reflect on what took place in Indianapolis on Sunday night. The more I think about it, the more I cannot believe the Patriots lost.
The more I realize how lucky the Giants got.
The more I realize how Tom Brady blew it. The Golden Boy. Continue reading

Before I get started, can you remember a better season of football than this one? Yes, we live in a sports world where we all happen to be caught up in the moment at times, but there is no denying the drama and heartbreak that took place in both the regular season and the post-season this year. Just in case you need your memories refreshed as to what happened on Sunday, here you go.
Game 1: Baltimore Ravens at New England Patriots:
It seems as though it’s rare that we see the top two seeds in the conference go at it in the championship game, but the NFL world was in for a treat on Sunday when the Ravens and Patriots clashed in Foxborough. This is one of the rare occurrences where you can legitimately make the argument that the better team didn’t win. With all the pressure on Joe Flacco leading up to the game thanks to comments by Ed Reed, the Baltimore quarterback had a lot of pressure on him. Some were even saying he was playing for his job, and if that was the case, then he indeed won it. Continue reading

Championship Game Scapegoats
How would you have liked being Billy Cundiff or Kyle Williams on Sunday? New members have joined the exclusive club that features the likes of Bill Buckner, Dan Goodale, and Steve Bartman. Okay maybe not Steve Bartman. And maybe not even Bill Buckner for that matter. But Billy Cundiff and Kyle Williams joined an exclusive club of “Choke Artists” on Sunday. Now I am a person who firmly believes that all teams win as a team, and lose as a team. It is never just one specific individuals fault. But the common fan and the media love to portray losses squarely on the shoulders of a specific individual. It is just the way our culture operates, especially in regards to sports. The blame game simplifies things. It keeps complex situations black and white. This is the beauty of scapegoating. Continue reading
