Maybe it’s because they have abandoned the Phillies, the downspiraling Phillies. Maybe it’s because they cannot quite embrace the post-tanking Sixers. Or maybe it’s because they don’t know what to make of the Flyers because they never know what to make of the Flyers.
Whatever the reason, Philadelphia fans are wildly optimistic about the Eagles -- with an emphasis on the “wildly.”
That it is the main takeaway from last week’s Daily News Survey: Predicting the Eagles’ season. It wasn’t a scientific poll, but more than 14,000 votes were cast on the eight questions, so it wasn’t nothing, either.
And to say that Eagles fans are expecting big things from Chip Kelly in the 2014 season does not begin to describe the expectations of the people who answered our questions.
