Perhaps one of the best parts of being a Philadelphia Eagles fan is you aren’t a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. Think of how horrible that would be.
It’s been a long-known fact by seemingly everyone except the Cowboys contingent that they’re quite possibly the most delusional fan base in all of sports. While the Dallas faithful talks themselves into theories that they’re winning the Super Bowl every season, Birds fans possess an ability to love their team without losing their connection to facts and reality… most of the time.
Who are we kidding? We’re all fans, and even though we try to tell ourselves to play it cool, it’s been hard to keep recent adrenaline rushes at bay recently when Philly does something exciting. Just ask nine-time MLB All-Star and three-time American League MVP Mike Trout.
During a battle between his Los Angeles Mets and the New York Mets on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, Trout took some time to talk about his hometown Eagles.
It appears the two-time American League Hank Aaron Award winner, Mike Trout, has seen enough to declare his Eagles as a Super Bowl favorite.
We haven’t seen a down of football played in 2022 yet, but we know enough to make certain assurances. The AFC is a better conference from a talent standpoint from top to bottom than the NFC is. The Los Angeles Rams, if there’s no Super Bowl hangover, will be a factor again in 2022. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers will have their opportunities to determine how things play out in the NFC as well.
As far as the NFC East is concerned, there are theories that the Eagles could be the favorites to take the division’s crown. Regardless of where you stand on that, most would agree that this is, in all likelihood, a two-team race between Philly and Dallas.
Mike Trout has his sights on a much larger prize. Take a look.
There’s a man that’s proud of where he’s from, a man that loves his team. Sure, it’s June. Sure, his reasons for picking Philadelphia to come out of the NFC may be based on a little bias, but Trout is loyal to the midnight green, so he’s alright with us.
We expect Trout to take up residency in his end-zone seats as he does for every Eagles home game. Make sure you give him a wave if you’re at Lincoln Financial Field to watch Philly play his season. We’ll revisit that Super Bowl prediction sometime around January to see how things are progressing.
