Byron Maxwell Guarantees The Eagles in The Super Bowl

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.

  1. Can we all guarantee that we won’t talk about stupid guarantees anymore in sports because 90% of them never come true. The last guarantee I can think of that came true was Messier saying the Rangers would beat the Devils in the 1994 playoffs and then scoring a hat trick to back it up.

  2. The media is totally going to make a big deal out of a story that was in the media that I am posting about and talking about how the media is making a big deal out of.

    And endless circle of nonsense, yourself included. Dumb, talentless hipster doofus Jim. Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

    1. Agree with statement no need to bash the man, but yes I agree….Maxwell answered the question as how he approaches the season…his GOAL is the SB, and he has to look at it as a guarantee they will be there.

      “If you think you can do a thing, or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right” -Henry Ford

      ….that’s his mentality, nothing wrong with it, could have been stated differently but who cares……now Philly media will blow it up and let ESPN take it across the country….YAY!

  3. Super Bowl my ass the Eagles are 9-7 bound,with no playoff appearance.

  4. Can someone in the sports media please learn what the word guarantee means?
    Any moron jock can say the word ‘guarantee,’ it doesn’t mean they can guarantee anything.
    I can look past the jock who never took a test in 16 years, but not the so-called journalists whom I presume are educated.
    I guarantee means you make good on a promise or contract. A company can guarantee a product, if the product fails, they refund your money or send you another product.
    An athlete CANNOT guarantee an EFFING thing.
    The ‘journalists’ need to learn the English language and stop writing about guarantees.

    1. Shut up you pion. Members of my P&P club are certified pot stirrers. Sorority gossipers at heart, the media scribes don’t have the intelligence to write real insightful articles about facts. They believe the readers are dumb enough to eat up the garbage they concoct. They prefer to define the expectations for themselves, even if they are far from reality. Case in point, why would 22 year old millionaires like Carts and Richie want to go out in center city and crush it? How dare they.

  5. The only prediction I will make is that Innes will be feasting on Reeha’s XL roast beef platter (with extra gravy) this weekend.

    Take that to the bank Godfather Locks.

      1. I’m am so thankful I didnt eat in the last 30 mins. This image may never leave me.

  6. Man, don’t he know the standard Eagles chant is “we’re going to the Super Bowl this year, baby”. Same shit year after year!

  7. Is he willing to back that up with returning his $$$$ if they don’t?
    SHUT YOUR FUCKING SPOOK MOUTH

  8. I THINK WE HAD A BETTER SHOT AT THE SUPER BOWL IF WE GOT MARIOTTA. I HOPE WE TRADE FOR HIM BEFORE THE SEASON STARTS. MATHIS IS BEING A BABY AND WANTS OUT. LET’S PACKAGE HIM AND A PICK FOR MARIOTTA!

    E-A-G-L-E-S!

  9. Seems more like a mindset than guarantee..

    Would you prefer him come out and say, “I expect us to just make the playoffs and maybe win one game”

    No.

    The media in this town are muck rakers. Especially all the ones looking for their stupid “Chip Kelly is a racist” quotes..

  10. There’s nothing wrong with this. He’s just expressing confidence in the team. It’s different from saying “dream team dynasty blah blah.” I like it.
