Starting QB's: The good but the not great

After the Giants duo of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Prince Amukamara posed for a photo with a Giants fan who wore an interesting Eagles jersey, Philadelphia have hit back.

The jersey worn by the fan in the picture who had his back to the camera had written on the back "Super Bowls" with the number 0 underneath.

Clearly the Super Bowl XLVI champions taking a stab at the fact that their NFC East divisional rivals have yet to get their hands on the treasured Vince Lombardi trophy.

It was a prank that seriously angered the Philadelphia fan base and resulted in the two Giants Cornerbacks apologising for their actions.

Now there has been a new attempt by Philadelphia to embarrass the Giants and they have targeted one person specifically.

Giants Quarterback Eli Manning is the subject of the animated video as he is reduced to a little boy who is afraid of the dark and haunted by some Eagles ghosts.

The video was uploaded to the Eagles Twitter page and has thus far been retweeted over 1,400 times.

The Eagles will be wearing all black this Sunday in a day being billed as Black Sunday as the Eagles look to get their season back on track.

The Eagles are currently 4-1 and top of their division but despite their impressive record, there are deeper stories behind their victories that will worry Philadelphia fans.

They were stopped in Santa Clara by a very strong and resurgent San Francisco 49ers defence while their most recent match tells an interesting tale.

The Eagles got the 34-28 win over the St Louis Rams last weekend but the real story is that the Eagles were at one point, up 34-7 and threw away a massive lead in the third and fourth quarters.

Eagles fans will be hoping for a much more solid performance on Sunday against a Giants team with a new offense that has stormed to a 3-2 record so far this season.
