Best thing for Giants is for Eagles to win the Super Bowl

twostepgiants : 1/12/2018 7:44 pm
The Giants management have always judged themselves by their opponents in the NFC East and I think if you look back you can see that the Giants have mostly thrived with this.

The Giants most recent Super Bowls came in 2007 and 2011. However, the decisions that led to those Super Bowl Championships were made after the 2003 season when they fired Jim Fassel, hired Tom Coughlin and drafted Eli Manning and Chris Snee and released Kerry Collins. The Eagles at that point were in the midst of the run to 4 NFC Championship games.

In 2004 the Eagles went to the Super Bowl and the Giants had one of their greatest offseason ever. They spent a mini-fortune to bring in Plaxico Burgess, Antonio Pierce and Kareem McKenzie. They nailed all 3 acquisitions and huge pieces in the first Super Bowl. They had an incredible draft despite having limited picks (only 4) from the Manning deal. They hit on Corey Webster, Justin Tuck and Brandon Jacobs. Again, 3 huge pieces of the SB run. IMO, this was the offseason where the Giants won a Super Bowl. They were like a team possessed.

In addition, it would be Nick Foles leading that championship run and not Carson Wentz. This would likely result in a dreaded QB controversy. As the Giants found out with Jeff Hostetler and Phil Simms, this is not so easily resolved. Obviously Carson Wentz is the far superior player but he would be reintegrating back to the team, coming off a serious injury and teams develop loyalties to the person who won especially in a situation where this would be Phillys first SB.

Most teams that do win only win Super Bowl. Seattle, Green Bay, Néw Orleans, Indianapolis, etc. It is very hard to win more than one no matter how well stacked they may seem. Only the Patriots, Giants and Steelers have bucked this trend recently. This would likely be Philadelphia’s only Super Bowl.

As painful as it would be to see Philadelphia win the Super Bowl, it is not about te present but the future. It matters not on the current state of affairs. There is no harm that comes from this seasons Eagles win or lose. But a Philly win could motivate the Giants management, cause Eagles QB controversy and they will probably not win again.

No harm in seeing the Eagles do well. It is harder to keep a winning team together. Everyone wants to get paid.

That said...I think the Eagles lose this weekend.
Hell No

That is the most ridiculous take ever...It will never be the best thing for the Giants is to have ANY TEAM in the NFC east to win the SB especially the only one that has NEVER won one.

See djm.

But what's best for me is: not Patriots.
New Englanders will be crying "What Went Wrong???" Blame the turmoil rumors, and it will be liveable here for 4 months without the Patriots year-round love-in.

My worst nightmare is having the Eagles bring a championship to Philly.
No it’s not and luckily it’s not gonna happen anyway

Falcons 28
Eagles 13

Next year, the law of averages catch up to them and they win 9 games.

Not only no but  
mrvax : 1/12/2018 8:10 pm : link
hell no! And the Eagles will have zero QB controversy. When Wentz is healthy, he's the guy. End of story.

In almost every other thread, you will have about 50% of poster agree with the OP's premise and 50% opposed to it.

It's not often a landslide. Outside of an EliteMob thread, that is.

Would the Eagles have a QB controversy?  
twostepgiants : 1/12/2018 8:22 pm : link
Phil Simms in 1990 had already won a SB and was leading Giants to 2nd best record in NFL, started off 10-0 and was having his best season ever. He was looking like a real superstar QB that year.

It was inconceivable that he wouldn’t be the Giants QB in 1991. Then Hostetler’s playoff run happened.

You have to remember that Wentz would likely be rusty, And every time Wentz had a bad game, Eagles fans would be calling for Foles.

A close second to the Giants winning a Super Bowl is the Eagles NOT winning one. You're basically saying... let's let the Germans win WWII, so that they tire themselves out and fight amongst themselves and then we can beat them next time. THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE DOING EVERYTHING FOR!

Holy crap can't believe I'm even typing this. I don't even have a solid metaphor that makes any sense here because something so ridiculous has never been suggested in human history.

but i think if this group is good enough to win a SB with Foles, they would probably win a few more with Wentz

You just posted that you want the Eagles to win a SB on a fucking Giants message board?

Glad I ate before jumping on. My wife said in your final days you won’t look back and wish the Giants had won one more game. I responded with no but I will say I wish the Eagles would have lost more. I literally believe my hate for them is greater than my love for the Gmen. Fortunately I believe they fall short this year. The remaining teams Can all beat them.

Agreed. I think CV36 should cancel any life insurance and show that to his wife right away.

For years I've been saying that the Eagles will never win a SB. I believe God himself, with good reason, hate the Eagles & their fans.
I rarely post, but when I do...  
Larry in Pencilvania : 1/12/2018 9:55 pm : link
It's to tell the OP he's a fucking moron. I have to live in Philly and I don't want to hear shit from those mouth breathers about having a championship.


Fuck them and FUCK YOU
