Well, that was 13 years ago, and I don't think they called anybody a "thug", unless I missed it............ but OK. I see your point there.


Let me get this straight, though. Citizens are rioting in Philadelphia, which has one of the larges African American populations in our country. Officials are declining to use forceful tactics to stop them, and the media is giving them the benefit of the doubt. Somehow we've interpreted this as blacks being treated unfairly? Alright. I think I'll just avoid this "football discussion" for awhile, and let you guys hash it out.

Cardinals’ last NFL Title was 1948.

52 Super Bowls and 32 teams means they’d have to be pretty evenly distributed for every team to have won one.
What do the Cardinals have to do with the NFC East? They haven't been in that division in a really long time so obviously I wasn't including them as being part of the division.

Just pointing out that there aren’t that many SB Titles to go around and that quite a few teams have loooong droughts.

You know there are black people in the photo that you just posted, right?
Not the AP, but from a higher quality news source actually.

I don’t think those were Eagles fans.

SSS but he doesn't have a stellar record as HC. Just ask Broncos fans.
