Dude, as I've pointed out before, the Eagles have 3 (THREE) league titles. If ya want to discount them since they weren't "Super Bowl" titles, then you sound like my kids used to when they spoke like tv or video games never mattered until their favorite stuff existed. In the realm of timeliness, your Cowgirl trophies become as irrelevant to people as my Eagles' titles appear to you. Accept the fact that my team does, in fact, have league championships in the history of the league.

That's exactly my line of thought.

All I can say is my grandfather on my dad's side was a Boston Red Sox fan...
And I mean a Yuuuuuuuge Red Sox fan..

He watched them win the World Series several times in a few short years in his youth...
Bullet Joe Bush... Babe Ruth... Carl Mays...

Then he died waiting for it to happen again...

So what you are saying is that mccmech and the rest of us will be dead before the Eagles win a Super Bowl?

Timeliness is relevant when these 'titles' were in your lifetime or not. I have 4 Superbowl wins in my memory.

I don't know about that one...

I think spread out a bit in clusters is nicer...
A couple in the 70's and a few more in the 90's...

Gramps was pretty frustrated from 1919 until he died in the mid 80's...
He was really excited in '67 and again in 75, but had a big let down...
He really hated the Yankees...

Of course many is nice, but any is better than none, and yes mccmech, I am talking about the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Well I don't know about that...

I was just saying all those years without a championship had Gramps pretty bitter...

Maybe he needed to pick a back up champion to root for once his team was out...

Perhaps a team in an opposing league that could have a chance at beating his nemesis the Yankees...

I dunno...

It was just sad to see him merely watching a world series in a year when the Yankees weren't playing as he wasn't rooting for the Yankees to lose...
