The Eagles just made it to the wildcard position and rallied in the last
and the Phils won this year. They made wild card the previous year.
If the Eagles don't win this year could this pattern hold and they might win
the Superbowl next year?
The Phils made wild card two years ago but didn't rally as well.
At that time, they had been in the wild card race for most of September.
What happened is they leaped over the wild card and actually took
over first place in the division.
Took them 6 months to do it, but they finally passed the Mets.
My sister hates the Mets, because on the first day of the season, the Phils
stop Jimmy Rollins was being interviewed, and he said "We are the team to
beat" and he got HAMMERED for it by the Mets and New York press, for some
reason they were really offended by it. She didn't think it was such an
offensive thing to say, she thought it was just 'standard athlete
understand why they were so ****ed off about it. But they just
tortured him about it for the next 6 months, because they had the lead all
season... until the wild card happened.
(And PS Rollins also happens to be the front runner for league MVP until
he really did get the last laugh here after all.)
Two more games left in the season.
If they win one of two, they win the division, hands down, and are assured a
play off berth. No wild card required. But they didn't win, that year,
they made it the next
