You know, it's a funny thing. I have been wearing Iggles gear for years now, and very few people have said a thing. Now, I am constantly accosted by Iggles fans on the street. This did not happen in 2004, when they also started 8-1 and went to the Super Bowl. Makes me think that (a) there are a lot bandwagon fans than there used to be; (b) people like Carson Wentz better than Donovan McNabb; or (c) both.
I'm thinking both. It's easier to hop on the Iggles bandwagon when their QB is from the Big Sky Conference and from neighboring North Dakota. At any rate, I am digging. I had a Broncos fan in my FF league who had bet me a fifth of bourbon back in July when the schedule came out, who then promptly welshed on the bet last Monday night when the Broncos got steam rolled by the Chiefs. Speaks volumes to me about Denver fans.
Regardless, I am digging it. Bye week this week, then a trip to Dallas. Hopefully Zeke will be suspended by then.
P.S. to Broncos fans. Why on earth did you ever let Wade Phillips go? His Rams look like the real deal. The new Denver defense is a shadow of its once dominant self. Mr. Ed screwed up.
