When Andy Reid, Jeffrey Lurie and Joe Banner sit down to their respective Thanksgiving Day dinners, all of them will give thanks to their families, relative health, wealth and the bountiful feast set before them.
And then, they will thank the heavens they are not the Washington Redskins.
In the last 12 seasons, the Eagles have been to five NFC title games, a Super Bowl, have enjoyed playoff berths in nine seasons and suffered through just two sub-.500 seasons.
The Redskins, on the other hand, have enjoyed just three playoff appearances in that time, have broke .500 just six times and again in 2011 feature a roster with more question marks than exclamation points.
No, the Eagles have no Super Bowls to their credit, but in the last dozen years the franchise has enjoyed a period of near-unprecedented success while the Redskins continue to suffer a near-unprecedented famine.
All in all, the Eagles are not the Washington Redskins.
And that's something all of Philadelphia can be grateful for.
