You might have seen it, you might have not, but today B/R's own Ryan Alfieri published a new article titled "2012 NFL Power Rankings Now That Free Agency is Over".
When I got closer to the end and saw that he had Philadelphia ranked No. 2 in front of San Francisco, Green Bay, Pittsburgh and New York I was overjoyed. Finally, someone who respects what this team has been able to accomplish in the offseason.
My happiness was short lived, unfortunately. Looking below at the comments, I saw that three out of five of them were about how "dumb" Ryan was for putting the Eagles that high.
Really, was that necessary?
For all the doubters out there, I truly do believe that the Eagles are Super Bowl bound.
The common argument against it is, "Oh, Andy Reid is still your coach" or "Come on, you went 8-8 last year" or "Michael Vick will miss four to five games". All three just show ignorance and a lack of thorough research.
The Philadelphia Eagles of 2012 are a much better squad than the Eagles of 2011, and here are seven reasons why they are indeed ready to win the franchise's first Super Bowl.
