Yea, they’ve won a few Super Bowls and the Eagles haven’t.
Eli Manning and Phil Simms and Jeff Hostetler and whatever.
But let’s check in on New York fans today, beginning with a somewhat “tone deaf” tweet from a dope running the Empire State Building account:
Congratulations to the @Patriots and the @Eagles, The AFC and NFC Champions! In honor of their upcoming trip to the big game our lights are now shining in their colors. Who will you be cheering for on February 4th? 🏈 pic.twitter.com/IsDZLLbrmG

It went about as well as expected:
Is it New York?
Last time I checked, the Giants don’t play in New York, but what do I know.
Same crap from NYG fans at large:

Yea. Yea it could get worse. You could rehire Ben McAdoo.

Now you know how I felt watching Eli Manning vs. Tom Brady.
damn. now i have to root for New England since as a Giants fan I just can't go for the Eagles–not even against the evil empire

Evil Empire? Great album. My favorite song is “Vietnow.” Or “Snakecharmer.”
The Eagles made the playoffs 21 times since '78. In that span, they've made it to 2 Super Bowls and lost both. The Patriots made the the playoffs 19 times since '94. In that span, they've made it to 8 Super Bowls and won 5. As a Giants fan, I am rooting for the commercials.

What could only be worse than the Giants season this year? A Patriots vs Eagles Super Bowl
— TheNewRoller (@TheNewRoller) January 22, 2018
Life comes at you fast.
I could NEVER root for the Eagles or any division rival to win a super bowl. If you root for the Eagles in sb 52 delete yourself from giants nation. And I've been a giants fan for 28 years so you can throw the niners in that list too. #justsaying #GiantsPride

You delete yourself.

We all have to make tough choices.
Looking at an Eagles-Patriots Super Bowl glass half full as a Giants fan:
I don't give a shit who wins, but knowing that the losing team's fans will be absolutely devastated is just so satisfying.
— Nicole Gartner (@cole_gartner) January 22, 2018
Well, Nicole, you’re a real asshole.
The eagles and the patriots going to the Super Bowl. This is the absolute worse season of the fucking NFL as a giants fans
— Mouf (@Mouf219) January 22, 2018
Live with it.
I am ALL-IN on the Patriots. I hate you, and your corrupt, stupid team, you stupid Patriots people, but I hate the stupid, dumb, illiterate, and brain-dead Eagles more. Go Giants. Temporary go Patriots.
— coop (@coopernaps) January 22, 2018
We all hate stupid Patriots people.
An Eagles/Patriots Super Bowl is every @Giants fan’s worst nightmare… I think I’d rather pluck out my eyelashes than root for either one 😐

Easy answer. Giants fan never ever root for Eagles , Never. Giants are only SB wins vs Bill/Brady era. Patriots perfection outside of Giants makes Giants wins more remarkable. Giants fans must root for Patriots.
— 987s (@987s) January 22, 2018
I can understand that.
As a Giants fan, I rather the Eagles get their ring and stfu rather than the Patriots getting their sixth 🤷🏻♀️. But the Eagles got to beat the officials not the team itself.
— Khaleesi (@mayyflowerr_) January 22, 2018
I’d love to get a ring and STFU.
I'm a Giants fan living in Philly whose business partner is from Boston. Looking at flight to Outer Mongolia for the next two weeks

I’ll fly your ass there myself!
I’ll drop you right here:
