Oh, and I wasn't alive for the Raiders SB. But from the looks of the game we got our asses kicked. Glad I missed that one.
Vermeil stressed out the players by keeping them on a short leash all week and we were jobbed by the officials.

Couple of weird plays in that SB game too. For example, Eagles good young CB was in better position to intercept a long pass near the end zone than the WR--Cliff Branch if I recall correctly. Some how the WR out jumped him for it and led to TD when it looked like it would go the other way. The clip is actually on youtube at the 2 min mark here

Remember for the Eagles that year the win over the Cowboys in the NFC title game was their Super bowl. The actual Super Bowl was just icing on the cake. Before Vermeil the Eagles did not have a winning record in TEN years! The Cowboys and Redskins pummeled the Eagles seemingly every year. The disdain for the Cowboys is not a recent development.

That's why the Oak Superbowl is not close to being at the top of the Woe is Us list.
