Happy thanksgiving everyone, we hope you have an amazing day with your family and friends before tucking into a glorious dinner..who knows, we might even be treated with an Eagles win!
Talking of which, here are the top 5 things that Eagles fans should be thankful for this thanksgiving.
Our division is a mess this year, but if it wasn’t we would have been out of the playoff race a long time ago…thank you to Dallas, Washington and New York for keeping our hopes alive.
They may have had a bad game but with two top five safeties and a cornerback who didn’t allow a single touchdown between weeks 4-10. Sure the secondary faltered against the Bucs but without it, we would have struggled to bail out the Offense in the opening weeks.
Take your Hicks
He might be injured but until that point was arguably the leading contender for Defensive Rookie of The Year. It’s rare to see someone so young calling the shots on the field but Hicks has earned that respect and role already. This season was just a glimpse into a very bright future and that’s certainly something to be thankful for!
Food, Family and Eagles Football, what more could you want?! (Other than a win…that would be nice)
The Bees Knees
Yes he’s had three concussions and a separated shoulder…BUT THE PETITION FOR THE POPE TO BLESS THE KNEES OF SAM BRADFORD MIGHT HAVE PAID OFF. Bradford looks more confident than ever in the pocket and it’s unfortunate that the injury struck when he was red hot. The good news is that he’s no longer worrying about his knee or looking sheepish..you could say he’s looking….GOATish……no? Okay we’ll save that one for an appropriate time!
