Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win the Super Bowl: A Fan's Story of Hope

Benjy MillerContributor IDecember 20, 2008

Yes, I believe the Philadelphia Eagles will win the Super Bowl. Yes, this is a biased Eagles fan writing. 

The Eagles are hot. Really hot. They will go to the playoffs. But they are going to need some help. They are going to need help from many people. Let me explain.


Brian Westbrook is the best all-around running back in the NFL. No question about it. He is the best; deal with it.

Once he is 100 percent, the Eagles will dominate. The Eagles are going to have to get to the playoffs with a 90 percent Brian Westbrook, which is still better than most running backs (no offense).

Westbrook will return to 100 percent. I'm hoping he gets better before the playoffs. He needs rest; I'm not suggesting don't play him the next game or two, because we need him, I'm just saying maybe play him less to prepare for the playoffs—because we are going.


Andy Reid, why must you scare everyone by not being you in the beginning of the season? Now that you're back, you had better stay that way. We need you to get to the playoffs. Without you being you, we may not go.


Jim Johnson, I love you. And I love our third-best defense. Keep it up!


Donovan McNabb is one of the best quarterbacks, above average in every category. Why haven't we secured a spot in the playoffs? You guys are scaring me, so I have a message to McNabb:

Dear Mr. McNabb, 

I am a die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan. I have some insider information you might like to know. It's about how to get to the playoffs/win the Superbowl.

Here it is: Be the Donovan McNabb from the 2004 season. That's it. Only, be better. Spread out your throws, we have some good receivers in DeSean Jackson, Jason Avant, Hank Baskett, etc. And try the run thing out again, you might still have it.

P.S.: I would really like to meet you, if you wanted to send me like an autograph or something, that would be great!


DeSean Jackson was a great draft pick. All you have to do, DeSean, is run your route correctly and catch the balls thrown to you, OK? That's your only job. Sounds simple, no? It's going to be very hard. I trust you, Jackson!


The Atlanta Falcons/Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to be key teams in our quest for the playoffs. Here's how you can help us. Come close, I'm going to tell you a secret. LOSE!!!!! That's it, very simple, eh?


Correll Buckhalter, you're a great running back. How does it feel to be in Brian Westbrook's shoes? Pretty nice, huh? Well, we need you to live up to Westbrook's expectation while he's not 100 percent. Can you do it? This is, quite possibly, the most difficult job out of everyone, but, I trust you.


The Philadelphia Eagles, including those I named, you guys are awesome. Win the rest of the games for the Eagles fans everywhere. We believe in you, we trust you, we know you can do it. So, do it for us, please.


OK, after you guys have gotten into the playoffs, it's time to...stay hot! I know you can do it. Don't let any of these other teams fool you, they're no better than you. You can beat all of them, I know it. Because I've gone into the future, I've seen what happens, but I can not tell anyone, as it may alter history.

Do you even know why you're going to win the Super Bowl? It's a little thing called "hope." I hope. Eagles fans hope. Everyone hopes.

Let's keep this season going for the better! We can do it; I know we can!
