We won’t lie to you. We’re nearing a month since the Super Bowl loss, and there’s still this stinging feeling. That was a rough night. In a matter of moments, the greatest season in the history of the Philadelphia Eagles quickly became the most disappointing. This one won’t age well. No one will give you a hard time if you’re still bothered by this. It hurts.

Those who are a little longer probably see this as your first sports heartbreak. The more seasoned Philadelphia sports fans have been through this a time or ten before. This is part of the deal when you love sports.

This feels like that pain that came with watching Joe Carter’s home run in the World Series, Ronde Barber’s pick-six at Veteran’s Stadium, and that loss at Lincoln Financial Field versus the Carolina Panthers that came the year after. The sun will rise again though.

30 NFL franchises would have loved to have traded places with the Eagles last February, and here’s the good news. The Eagles are a good team. They have a great owner. They’re home to the best game’s best general manager.

We trust this team. We trust Howie Roseman even more so. He probably wants to win more than any of us.

Howie doesn’t need our help, but let’s offer some anyway. We have a roster to put together. Here’s what we’re hoping gets done.
