I once heard a national writer talk about the best NFL fans. They mistakenly gave the Raiders #2 behind Eagles fans. In 2008 ESPN did an embarrassing one, but that is the four letter word, I’ll save that for another off season rant.
However, one thing he wrote stuck with me. Raiders fans are among the only fans Eagles fans actually respect.
That means a lot considering most fan bases hate the Raider Nation.
If you are going to give small props to other “nations” than the Eagles and Browns fans have to right at the top (WE ARE THE ONLY ORIGINAL NATION).
The Eagles need us to beat TB. Not only will beating TB give Philly a shot, but it gives them a shot to take down the Yankees of the NFL, The Dallas Cowboys.
Oddly Jerry Jones and Al Davis are tight which creates a strange love circle considering the rivalry between the Eagles and Cowboys.
We need this one for other reasons, but giving the Eagles a shot is a nice consolation prize.
