The Philadelphia Eagles may be jinxed.
I have to admit, it’s been fun seeing how much national buzz and attention that the Philadelphia Eagles have gotten leading up to the 2015 NFL season. As I wrote last week, seven ESPN analysts predicted that Chip Kelly’s squad would win the Superbowl, with one even picking they would do so with DeMarco Murray winning the league’s MVP.
Some have suggested that all of this attention prior to the season is bad karma or that it will “jinx” the Eagles, but I find it to be more fun than anything. If the Eagles enter the season with some predicting that they could win the Superbowl and somehow manage to flame out, well, it wouldn’t be the first time.
However, this picture that’s floating around Twitter may just be the thing to jinx the Eagles.Image Credit: Black Sports Online
I started to see this image around last night but have been unable to find out who the guy that got the tattoo was. Anyone with information on that is asked to e-mail Section215@Fansided.com.
As for the tattoo, I like it. It doesn’t look like it was the most professionally done one, but it’s still a cool tattoo. However, I’m not a big fan of neck tattoos. Perhaps a larger one for his back would have been more fitting. It also would be easier to cover up if this doesn’t turn out to be the case.
The pre-season got many of us excited for the Eagles’ 2015 campaign, but perhaps it’s a smarter idea to just enjoy the ride that the Eagles are about to go on then to guarantee things like this. The reality is that it would obviously be a success for the Eagles to win the Superbowl (obviously), but if Sam Bradford stays healthy and the Eagles win one playoff game, the season would probably be a success as well.
While this season may be the most anticipated season since the 2004 season, one in which the Eagles went to the Superbowl, it’s important to remember that the 2004 team had already been to three NFC championship games and was a more complete team. That’s not to say that this Eagles team couldn’t go to the Superbowl, but that probably shouldn’t be the expectation like it was for the 2004 team.
