Go to school in the heart of "eagels" territory and had three of my friends tell me that...

- Asante Samuels is the best coner in football
- The Eagles are the best franchise in football
- The AFC East is the hardest divison in football

6 rings. I've only seen two of them but that doesn't matter. 6 rings is six rings.

The Eagles are a good franchise but there is no debate about who is the best franchise. The SBs speak for themselves.

I respect the fact that they atleast have the ability to get there, but ya gotta win some

Seriously speaking though, I do have respect for the eagles, whether other Steeler fans like that or not. I grew up around Philly fans so like to see what the Eagles can do every year.

Since the start of the SuperBowl era:

Philly is 13-16 in the playoffs, and is 0-2 in SBs.

Pittsburgh is 28-17 in the playoffs, and is 6-1 in the SuperBowl.

Philthydelphia should be demoted to New Jersey, and removed from Pennsylvania.

You need new friends.... Maybe find a Steelers bar.

NFC East is easily the most Hyped division due to being in so many big markets.

Samuel is a good corner. Champ Bailey is probably the best. Maybe they mean't highest paid?

I'm curious what category the eagles could possibly use to justify best. They're consistently making the playoffs but you can say that about a lot of teams who actually go to the playoffs a lot and sometimes win the Superbowl.

They probably have the most lousy and infantile fans. Of course they have to share these fans with all the other franchises in town.

Nice. Philly fans do seem to suffer a serious case of Super Bowl Envy. Our games with them seem to mean much more to them than they do to us. After all they are not in our division or conference.

Whoa man, Jersey isnt bad at all. Football is real big around here and we got plenty of good Schools here, Dont get it twisted ! And the Eagles, Theyre all right. Not a good franchise. But they are in a somewhat hard divison
