If you're a Giants fan like I am, we've had a lot to endure the last few weeks.

First, we're brought up by an unexpected 9-7-1 season, followed by a playoff win over the Minnesota Vikings. Then, it all comes crashing down, and I so mean crashing down with a capital C, as our team gets demolished by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Those same Eagles are going to the Super Bowl. How does that make you feel?

Now there are two ways of looking at this: One way is to be the good loser and wish them and their fans, many of whom you probably know if you live in Central Jersey, the best. You might even root for the Eagles to win the Big Game to also get a win for the NFC, or, more specifically, the NFC East, which is the division where the two teams play.

On the other side of that coin toss is the fact that if you're a true Giants fan, these are the Philadelphia friggin' Eagles!!! The team that brought us Miracle of the Meadowlands, Miracle of the Meadowlands II, and countless other "miracles" in all the stadiums that they've played each other in.

For some reason, the Eagles have always had the Giants' number, and that number is usually less than the number they put up at the end of the game. If you're a Giants fan, with all that you've endured at the hands of both the Philadelphia Eagles as well as their fans, how can you possibly root for this team under any circumstances? What's next, Cowboy love?

I was shocked by the fact that the Empire State Building was lit up in green! No wonder so many people are moving out of that town.

Personally, as hard as it is for me to say, I believe the Eagles will beat the Chiefs next Sunday, Feb. 12; but I will not be cheering in front of my television or singing "Fly Eagles Fly on the road to victory". BTW — how do you fly down a road? Asking for a friend.

I polled my fellow Giants fans to see what they think:

As a Mets watching the Phillies in the World Series. Can Philadelphia go 0-2 in the big games?

They are the luckiest team in the NFL no question

Perhaps, now, the Giants organization will invest in an offensive line
