How do you celebrate with cheesesteaks and scrapple? He says Eagles' fans will celebrate with cheesesteaks and scrapple when they beat Mike Vick in the NFC title game? Did he really mean Andy Reid will celebrate with lots of greasy meats? The points about the Patriots being the favorite to win the Superbowl are actually pretty good.
Only one team, the 1967 Green Bay Packers, won a Super Bowl after losing its final two regular-season games. And the Patriots will make sure the Packers don't have any company in that distinction, when they defeat the Philadelphia Eagles in Jacksonville on Feb. 6. Yeah, the throaty Eagles fans will get to celebrate with cheese steaks and scrapple as their team knocks off the Atlanta Falcons and audacious quarterback Michael Vick in the NFC championship game. But happiness is not a commodity long-lived in Philadelphia and the Eagles will fall to the Pats and keep the locals miserable for another winter. -- Len Pasquarelli
