Will there be a Super Bowl hangover…. no and here’s why
4 September 2018 Eagles News
Back on February 4th, the Philadelphia Eagles won their first Super Bowl. Ever since that moment, all we’ve heard about is a Super Bowl hangover during the upcoming season. But, I’m here to ensure you they’ll be no hangover.
Usually when a team wins the Super Bowl, there’s a mass exodus of players and coaches. While the Eagles still ended up losing two offensive coaches, Frank Reich and John DeFilippo, they still kept a solid core. Players wise, the Eagles lost a few key contributors in Vinny Curry, Beau Allen, Patrick Robinson and LeGarrette Blount, but unlike any other team that loses players, the Eagles filled those positions with better players.
Coming into this season, you can say the Eagles have a better team on paper. The added Michael Bennett, Mike Wallace, Dallas Goedert, Haloti Ngata and are getting a bunch of players back from injury. Basically, there’s a bunch of players hungry to win a Super Bowl and the players who were hurt want to win their own.
To say the Eagles are going to be content with just one Super Bowl is a lazy take and to whoever is saying that, you don’t know the Philadelphia Eagles do you. Like Jason Kelce said, the franchise, the players and the fans have been a starving dog for 52 years, one plate of food isn’t enough. The Eagles are not going to get complacent. Just a couple of days ago, Malcolm Jenkins mentioned how he did not like the Super Bowl sign in the locker room. After meeting with the team, they all decided to take it down. What’s that tell you? The Eagles are more focused than ever to win another one. Super Bowl 52 stills seems like it’s a dream and although the dream isn’t over as the banner will be unveiled this Thursday, make no mistake about it, the Eagles have moved on. This year presents a new challenge as the Eagles are the team being hunted. However, that just makes it easier to stay focused.
There will be no Super Bowl hangover. If you’re betting on that happening, you’re just scared of the Eagles. The Eagles, led by Carson Wentz are hungry to repeat and will make sure they do everything in their power to do so.
