Dynastic Dreams: Super Bowl 2018

Super Bowl LII has two incredible possibilities. Questions have already been asked if quarterback Nick Foles and coach Doug Pederson will be able to ring in a new NFL era at the end of Sunday’s big game. After all, if the Philadelphia Eagles bring home their first trophy, their quarterback/coach team would be reminiscent of the beginning of the Brady/Belichick dynasty in Boston. Last year, the Patriots cemented their legacy with a historic comeback win against the Atlanta Falcons. If they achieve a second back-to-back win, the franchise will hoist it’s sixth trophy in their eighth Super Bowl game of this millennium and make the Brady/Belichick era immortal.

To be fair, as an original New England girl, I’m rooting for the latter. However, as a fan of the sport, I won’t be mad if the Eagles win. What can I say that hasn’t already been said? They are the underdogs coming into this game with their quarterback/coach duo having less regular season career wins than the Patriots in their post-season successes. Who doesn’t love to see the underdogs come out on top? If I didn’t love the Patriots, I might be cheering on the Eagles.

Alas, as last year proved, anything can happen in football. Neither team can be counted out until the clock stops running. It’s a fair fight, and the Eagles could pull off an upset (to the glee of many football fans) or the current Patriots dynasty will become a timeless classic.  One thing is certain – both teams deserve to be there and both deserve to be celebrated Sunday night.

Who are you rooting for? Sound off in the comments!
