Default View of the game from London

There's a group of about 10 of us that regularly get together to watch the Eagles during the season at the Hippodrome Casino here in London. Sunday night, as well as the previous Saturday, it seemed except for the few Vikings fans that showed, the whole theatre section at the casino seemed like it was totally Eagles fans. "Fly Eagles Fly" was sung so much that night, that a few of the Vikings fans left when it got to 31-7. We also took a page out of the Philly fans (the ones at the Linc) by taking the piss out of the Vikings fans by shouting "Skol" after an Eagles TD. At the end of the game, it was very emotional for our group.

For myself, for some reason, this trip to the SB feels different--besides the fact that Foles and not Wentz is the QB. I'll be working the night of the SB, but I'll be watching with my colleague (who was at the Linc when Manchester United christened the stadium back in 2003).

For me, no matter how this game turns out what an incredible ride this season was!!! Pederson and his staff have been really surprising and led this team from start to finish. I cannot imagine how it is for you guys whom I have tailgated with and are actually there.

I cannot wait for Oct to roll around--there is a group that is trying to get a large amount of group tickets to watch them play at Wembley. In the meantime, I cannot wait, like the rest of you for next Sunday!!!

A ride nobody could’ve imagined at the start, in 2004 this was expected. They finally have the horses up front to get it done. I remember cringing during that SB watching NE abuse Fraley and the guards. Brandon Brooks has been a monster all year, getting Wiz back has been huge, and Kelce went from trade bait to playing at an all pro level.

You're not alone as this SB definitely has a different vibe to it and it starts with this coaching staff. Doug has impressed me greatly with his playcalling and willingness to adapt and learn from his mistakes. He's so far removed from AR's f'd-up philosophy it's not even funny. It took FF four ties to get us to the big dance and Pederson busted the door wide open on his first attempt....with BDN leading the way!

I'm really "feeling it" with this group as they're a good mix of seasoned vets who knows what it takes to win and young talented guys who are hungry....and a coach the players seem to love playing for.

And this is just the beginning. We're loaded and ready to roll this way for quite awhile.

Bring it home, boys!
