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.

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!

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.

Manny in CA : 1/12/2018 10:04 pm : link

Their fans would OWN MetLife Stadium, drowning out our fans with "Giants Suck !" chants.There's a lot of pent-up hatred with the Eagles, watching win four Super Bowls, while they haven't won anything since 1960.

There WON'T be any QB controversy there, everybody knows Wentz is the man there. If Philly wins, everybody knows it's because of the surrounding cast, not Foles.

Only good that could come of it is if this showed the Giants that even a 3rd tier has-been QB can win with a good team (especially a superior O-line in front of him)
Holy shit,  
smshmth8690 : 1/12/2018 10:12 pm : link

arcarsenal : 1/12/2018 11:55 pm : link
No, it's not.

This line of thinking never made any sense to me. It's ridiculous.

You think the Giants' brass is going to try less to build a competitor if the Eagles don't win the Super Bowl as opposed to if they do?

If that's the case, we hired the wrong people - and I'm pretty sure Dave Gettleman's plans are not going to change or be more focused because of what the Eagles do or don't do this month.

This is like being a Mets fan in 2008 and rooting for the Phillies to win the WS (which, they did) because it theoretically would have "motivated" the Mets to do more the following year.

Well, the Phillies won, and the Mets still sucked the next season... and the season after... and the one after that.... and the one after that.. and the one after that... and the one after that.

I don't ever want the fucking Eagles to win a damn thing.
