If I was a betting man, I would bet on the over with the Iggles covering the spread.  But still losing.

To be fair, I wasn't referring to the success rate of guaranteed wins, I was commenting on the fact that the Eagles have never won the Super Bowl so it's going to be pretty difficult to "bring that trophy back".

To be entirely fair, I never took "US Sports History 101" or "American Contact Sports in the Modern Era" in college, either.

I figured it meant that should (I know he said when) they win the trophy, they will bring it back with them to Philly instead of leaving it in Minnesota for some reason.

The team is going back to Philly after the game, aren't they?  If they have the trophy with them on that return trip, wouldn't they be bringing the trophy back with them?

His statement doesn't have to be interpreted to imply that he meant that Philly has won it before.

I got the joke, but being a pedant and all, you could simply read that they're bringing the trophy on the flight back to Philly.


On a somewhat related and interesting note, and one the article didn't mention, was Alshon Jeffrey's quote back in January when he was still a member of the Bears (3-13 that season) and said, "We're going to win the Super Bowl next year."  So he still has a shot at being technically correct.

Kinda weird that we don't count Championships won in professional football before the AFL merger/Superbowl, but we  count  NBA Championships Bill Russell won when there were like 9 times pre ABA Merger or World Series the Yankees won when there were like 16 racially segregated teams.

This thread is the opposite of yesterday's Jeopardy show, which turned into a sports fail. This thread has turned into an egghead grammar forum.

Nobody counts AL or NL titles pre-World Series (or 1904) either. The NFL and AFL championships aren't the Super Bowl.

"I though this was kind of interesting," Belichick said while addressing the team. "At first I though it was ... I couldn't believe it, but it's actually true. I'm talking about the Philadelphia parade after the game. It's 11 o'clock in case any of you want to attend that. It's going to go from Broad Street up Washington Avenue, past city hall then down to Benjamin Franklin Parkway and will end up at the art museum."
