NFL Eagles: Defending the title will be a challenge

Next Super Bowl is getting closer


Magical LII Super Bowl is well behind Philadelphia Eagles and now is the time to think about back-to-back. Eagles franchise and people of Philadelphia waited for 57 years to win their first championship and hopes can't be higher as the next LIII Super Bowl is getting closer. Everybody in the team is amazed by their success and they're not hiding it. Rodney McLeod said that he's happy everybody is coming after them. He added that their win "forces everyone to elevate their game and we've got the men to do it. That's the type of guys we have on this team. I'm glad to be in this seat. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."

The whole team is aware that becoming the first NFC team that went back-to-back in 25 years will be hard since everybody will try to hunt them down. This fact doesn't bother Eagles too much since they're using the preseason to prepare for numerous challenges that are in front of them. Brandon Graham is convinced that everybody is gunning for them, but he's sure they'll have a lot of trouble taking the title from Philly. He pointed out that Eagles won't take anybody lightly, even if the opposing team is not at their best. This mindset will hopefully help the Eagles to get over every obstacle on the way to the top. They will be everybody's Super Bowl this year and very difficult challenges are in front of them.

Nick Foles said that "It doesn't happen often where a team can go back to back and repeat and that's a challenge in itself." He also reminds fans that last year's success won't help the team to win future games and possibly the championship. That's the thing they've been preaching in hope to create a motivation for the next game and forgetting the last one.

All this motivation and positive thoughts won't be enough if the team is not really believing in success, and first proofs of their dedication will be visible in September once the meaningful football begins. Real fans who are not in a position to be at the stadium, will be able to support their favorite team by watching the Eagles game online. Either way, fandom will be able to see how serious Eagles are when it comes to winning a consecutive championship title.

It is very important that the team stays resistant to negative critique and learn from their mistakes. A lot of people is talking about Super Bowl hangover and that Eagles can fall victim to it. There's no place for fear if your goal is becoming a legend. Guys at Eagles are well aware of that and they'll do everything they know to make people of Philadelphia proud and happy once again.

There were eight teams that repeated in the Super Bowl, and it looks like Philadelphia Eagles are ready to get on the list and ensure a place in history with legendary teams such as Patriots, Broncos, Cowboys, 49ers, Steelers (twice), Dolphins and 66-67 Packers.

If Your Fall Hookup Is More Trick Than Treat, You Need To Dump Him

Don't be afraid to say "Boy, bye"


With cuffing season almost upon us, it may seem tempting to start finding a serious relationship, snuggling in closer to the casual fling you've been hooking up with, and doing everything in your power to make sure you don't go into the holiday season #SingleAsAPringle.

However, there are some situations in which it's way more worth it to not take that next step, or even to keep up the path you're on with the person you're seeing. If you're not having fun the majority of the time, or if staying involved with this person is causing you more stress than it's worth, it's time to let him go.

Fall breakups can happen for a number of reasons. If he doesn't respect you and just sees you as a sex partner, unless it's mutual, of course, this isn't really someone you want to bring with you into the holidays. Think about it. Do you really want to buy a Christmas gift for someone who won't even buy you dinner? No, no you don't.

If your fall schedule is getting jam-packed with back-to-school and every other commitment and you won't have time for romance, especially if he doesn't understand that and keeps pressuring you to spend time with him anyway, it may be time to say goodbye. While summer is a great time for fun, low-stress flings, fall is the time you're going to either want someone who'll stand by you and understand the realities of day-to-day life or it may be better to just focus on yourself instead.

If your entire relationship exists in the basement of a frat party or in his crusty twin size bed, if he's always pressuring you to shave all your body hair or to perform some sexual act you're not comfortable with, if he won't introduce you to his friends or take you out on a real date, it's time to decide that you deserve better.

Wouldn't you rather snuggle up with a puppy or a genuinely nice guy as the seasons change? I know I would.

Carrying a relationship into the fall is about so much more than having someone to snuggle with when the weather gets cold. There's no room in the season for fuckboys and anyone else who makes your life a nightmare. Honestly, the only nightmare any of us should have to deal with is the fun one for Halloween. But if the guy you're with is a nightmare or more of a trick than a treat, don't be afraid to say "Boy, bye."
