Eagles Stun the League, Take Down the Patriots

If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, you’d probably agree with me on this statement: It’s about time. All those years of suffering without a Super Bowl ring have finally resulted in triumph. Allow me to give you some perspective. The Philadelphia Eagles have existed since 1933, long before the Super Bowl began. The Eagles’ last championship run occurred in 1960.

Though Belichick is the most revered coach in the NFL today, Brady often gets the majority of the credit for the Patriots’ success. However, without Belichick’s guiding hand, there’s no way Brady would have had near the success he’s had. There are a fair share of talented qua...
