I assume the resident optimist, Z, is still water logged from his kayaking adventure, so I will be the voice of hope.

Since 1990, there have been 23 teams in 25 years that have started the season 1-3 and have managed to make it to the playoffs, and one started 0-4 and made it.

Of those 24, one, SD in 1992 started 0-4, and made it to the divisional round of the playoffs.

Our Eagles have done it three times, 1990, 1995 and 2013. We won a WC game in 1995 vs DET, but lost in 1990 to WAS and in 2013 to NO.

Here is how those 23 1-3 teams have fared:

Eliminated in WC round = 9
Eliminated in Div Round = 10
Elminated in Conf Champ = 3
Lost in SB = 0
Won SB = 1 (2001 Cheatriots)

So if there is one a year, why not us??
