Eaglefan Is Still Bitter Over Ronde Barber, Bucs

April 8th, 2010

Joe thought he’d give Bucs fans a chuckle this afternoon.

As anyone football fan not living under a rock knows, the Eagles traded Donovan McNabb to their NFC East rivals, the Redskins, on Easter Sunday. For many Eagles fans, this was the Easter Egg they had long hoped to find.

Despite leading the Eagles to five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl, Eaglefan generally loathes McNabb for not being able to bring home a ring.

Since the trade was consummated, docile creatures that they are, Eaglefan has virtually taken over Sirius NFL Radio, either rejoicing in the fact McNabb is now in their rear view mirror, or they are beside themselves that McNabb was traded to a division foe.

One fan earlier this week called “The Blitz,” co-hosted by Adam Schein and Solomon Wilcots, to lay the blame of the Bucs win at Philadelphia in the 2002 NFC championship at the feet of McNabb.

“That beat down the Bucs gave us was embarrassing, it was appalling,” an outraged Eaglefan shouted.

Joe just couldn’t help but snicker. Good to know the Bucs and Ronde Barber are still in the forefront of the minds of Eaglefan.

    …and gave them a loss they’re first game in the Linc.

    Louie, You are right, I forgot about that. Easter came early for the Eagles in 2003, with that shutout and easter egg we gave them.

    I watch the tape on that game 3 or 4 times a year. It remains my favorite game of all time including the Superbowl win. I guess it meant more to me.

  5. Niraj Says:

    I live and work near Philly. And believe me, they haven’t forgotten about that loss. They know that was their best shot at winning the Super Bowl!

    :)…..I’m so enoying the fact that an Eagles fan still feels the Ying
    of my Yang….as the realization the THE BUC’s were GOING to the SUPER BOWLLLLLLLLLLLLLL !

    The Super Bowl win was a tremendous sight to see as a fan. However, an extremely close second was watching Ronde running down the sideline to put the NFC Championship game away. That was a great day!!!
