PHILADELPHIA -- Over the past three years, the Philadelphia Eagles have won 34 regular-season games and claimed two division titles. The franchise is one of just three in the league to have advanced to postseason play for the last three consecutive years. The young quarterback has played well, and the aggressive defense has been even better.

So such continued success in 2003 would be just fine, right, folks? Uh, not quite.
