Heard this one on 105.7 this morning. This is the fifth straight year when the visiting team in the Philadelphia Eagles home opener has gone to the Super Bowm

Haven't the previous 4 all won the Super Bowl too?

Yep. And we're less than a day into the build-up for the Super Bowl. Brace yourselves, everyone.

Another fun fact:

Flacco's flatulence expels at 32 mph, which is 14% greater than norm.

Farewell to a legend. Thanks for the memories, Ray Ray!

If you woke up this morning, congratulations. You got another chance

All it takes is one game for a stat line to have an outlier. I'm pretty sure we gave NE some of those outlier stats last night.

Its makes us feel better about our chances, but we need to play some football.

They should really test this theory. Let Philly host the Jacksonville Jaguars.

I had mentioned this. But then you can put out the stat that the past 4 years the team that beaten the Falcons in the playoffs have won the SB. Now we get to see which streak holds true.

The Falcons weren't in the playoffs in 2009. So it's only the last 2. And still, the odds of that happening are high because if you beat a team in the playoffs, they're only 1-2 games away from the Super Bowl.

This goes against all statistics. The chance of this happening is .0000953% (.5^20). Unbelievable!

You're right. I thought they missed in 08 but it was 09. In 08 they made though and lost to the Cardinals who lost to the Steelers so I still was wrong regardless.

Wow, even his gaseous expulsions are super-fast! Air Flacco, indeed!

He's probably read it already and closed his laptop real fast as soon as his wife asked "whatcha reading?"
