Eagles: To root or not to root?

Eagles fans are torn: Should they cheer for the Eagles to finish their season on a high note? Or should they root for the Birds to tank in the hope that more losing will beget a better draft pick and a new head coach? Les Bowen and John Smallwood of the Daily News present both sides of the argument.

THE CASE FOR WINNING

Les Bowen: You're pretending to be devastated because the Birds won Sunday to get to 5-8? The "don't ruin our draft position by winning" silliness is starting to pile up a little too deep in some Eagles Nation outposts.

THE CASE FOR LOSING

John Smallwood: If you're one of those Eagles fans who think Andy Reid's tenure as coach has lasted at least three seasons too long and you want to see this entire regime blown up, you probably weren't too excited about Sunday's victory in Miami.
