Anything could always be worse. Doesn't keep you from having the right to complain.

What you dont understand is that most of the Eagle playoff losses were in games that the Eagles should have won. Very rarely did I walk away from a Eagle playoff loss and say they just had no chance. Even the superbowl, the Eagles should have and could have won it. The lost NFC Championship games, the Eagles should have won them all. And this last game is the perfect example, the Eagles should have won it, could have won it and just didn't. I would rather not go to the playoffs then lose the way the Eagles manage to lose all the time in the playoffs.

So, when a Philly fan says the 'road to the playoff goes through Philadelphia' they're really just saying Philadelphia is a dead end?

That is why everyone picked the packers because for some strange reason the eagles played better on the road.
