Great, this again. Like the “dream team” of a few years ago — though this time stated by a starter — the Eagles may have a prediction hanging over their head this season. In an interview with Jenny Vrentas at MMQB, new Eagle Byron Maxwell had a prediction to make:
Vrentas: Is that similarity in the team culture a big reason why you believe the Eagles will go to the Super Bowl this year?
Maxwell: We will, though.
Vrentas: That sounds kind of like a guarantee.
Maxwell: You can take that as a guarantee. That’s just me believing in my team and the product we’re going to put out there on the field. I really do believe that. I have no choice but to think that way.
Personally, I’ll start lower: You can take it as a guarantee that this quote will get more play than it probably should. Count on it.
