The Giants won the SB in 2008 and 2012 while the Eagles have not won a playoff game since 2008. So it;s no reason for the Eagles to be HYPED up especially when they missed the playoffs last season

As a Redskins Homer, I must admit that all the attention we've been getting because of RG3 has been really fun.

As others have already said in here, the Redskins have been so bad for so long, you'd hardly ever hear about them on ESPN or NFL Network. But now a days you see/hear/read more about the Redskins than you do the Cowboys, for the first time since I can remember. It's pretty awesome.

I haven't see anything on ESPN about the Skins. Just the Jets and Eagles

Yep, people complaining today at the Packer site about Tebow coverage (shirtless) plus several other teams dominating all the NFL news.

Packers were 6-0 in their division last year, yet they aren't being picked by some to win the NFC North this year! They beat the Bears 4 times in a calendar year! Geesh!

I thought it was strange this time last year the Eagles got all the hype and the Packers was coming off a SB title and KNOCKED the eagles out of the playoffs on their road to the SB trophy


Strange

and for those who do not see the Redskins as part of the winning season, they will soon find out just how good the SKins are (I hope) It has been years, but everything turns around sooner or later. My dream simply is: the Redskins put the Cowboys to shame: we are a family of Cowboy fans, and they are obnoxious about it: all except hubby and me...

And when the Eagles make it a long tough fall and winter then the Philly media will encourage fans to root for the Flyers and Sixers. That's the ongoing sports cycle. (last sentence deleted) TVSG- your anti Philadelphia threads are grinding on me. I suggest you stop it!
