Yes, this is way, wayyyyy early!

I've already got flight, room and ticket booked. (and three vacation days towards the adventure)

Is anyone else going, or can suggest a tailgate to attend? :texflag:

Been thinking about this one for 4 yrs Dan. THEN, the sch came out and I found out it's on a Thursday night. Traffic in Philly is hell on a Sunday, can't imagine what it would be like on a Thurs. Eagle fans are not always that friendly either, not that that would stop me. Been chatting with jgl35 some, and just not sure I want to chance going. BUT, in case I change my mind, where are you staying? Where are your tickets located?

I'll be at the Sheraton Society Hill Link (http://www.starwoodhotels.com/sheraton/property/overview/index.html?propertyID=166), got a ticket Row 1, Sec 113. I'm making a mini-vacation out of this, as I've always wanted to see "Historic Philadelphia".

We have a few people who are coming in from New York City for this game. We will have to communicate closer to the game and meet up.

We are probably taking the SEPTA once we are in Philly from the 30th Street Station.

I live 45 min from the stadium and will not be attending.
Word of warning-I would not suggest trying to tailgate unless you have a friend who is an Eagles fan going with you. The fans here will be in your face from the moment you walk past-unless you are planning on attending without showing your Texan Colors.
I attended the Eagles-Saints game last year and they were very rude, vulgar and had a habit of throwing stuff toward the backs of Saints fans.

Philadelphia is a great place to visit and see some great history. If you're interested you can still mail a letter from the first post office in the US.

PM me if you want any other info about the area.

Hope you survive the game and get to enjoy it.

That's my issue with the Colts game. Affordable seats available are in the friggin rafters. I was gonna make a roadie out of that one, but, guess I'll be watching from home.

I'm still leary about the Eagles game. I've wanted to go to this one for 4 yrs, but, my gut feeling tells me to pass. I'm a little to old to deal with fans that might send me tumbling down some stairs, or something worst. Not a trip to be made alone.

Dan,

Please don't let me see you on YouTube beating the crap out of Philly fan!! I'm sure he was an asshat, talking s**t, but just walk away man! Walk away.


Shout out to Blue Crewers and Bull Penners. I am starting a collection for Dan's bail money.

So - Blue #80 Jersey or Red #90 Jersey? May have to look into some face paint for this one too!

I wouldn't go to the game (and I live an hour from the stadium) but the city is fun. As long as you know what areas to stay out of.

You should be alright. I lived in the Philly area and went to several Eagles games wearing Oilers gear. The Philly fans don't have issues with Houston. However if you want to be safe, do what I used to do. Get a plain white shirt and have the words "Dallas Sucks" printed on the front. Wear it under your jersey. If anyone starts giving you flak just lift up your jersey. The fans there will high five you. Actually that stunt earned me several free beers one game.

If we're going together, probably not. On that note you need to check your policy.

Call this number and they can tell you where they are going. I have a friend named Stephanie, she is a die hard eagles fan and has invited my friends to tailgate better yet I will PM yall Call her and she will tell you how to get to her tailgate and they are the nicest Philly fans in Philly, Mention me and do not act a fool and you will be fine.

I'm an Eagles fan and I can tell you that we don't have a problem with Houston at all. In fact, Eddie George is from a suburb of Philadelphia so we have always been cool with you guys.

If this was an early game, I would give the green light to you guys but since this is a primetime game, they're likely will be alot of drunk fans there, who have been drinking since morning in the parking lot.

However, just do me a favor. No matter what happens, please don't stereotype all of us like Colts fans did.

Unlike their forums though, I can see you guys have a lot of intelligent and classy fans here.

Sadly, Bill chickened out. Something about not having his life insurance policy up to date. I really don't see the problem, my husband is out of town until late Friday. I am sure he wouldn't mind.

I lived in Delaware for years and attended many Eagles games (even in the 700 level of the old Vet). If they mess with you just smile and say Dallas sucks. With that you will never have a problem there as it always worked for me.

Say hi to Angelo Cataldi for me, I really loved that guy ..lol.

In recent years, Raiders fans haven't been nearly as rowdy as before due to their recent downfall.

I'm not going to the game, but I really hope Eagles fans don't act like idiots at the stadium. The last thing we need is for another fanbase to get a terrible impression of us.

I'm worried, especially with this being a primetime game. I hope Cavs fans throw beer bottles or something at Lebron tonight. Something to take the spotlight off of Eagles fans lol.

I tried that in DC actually, and got cussed at. I was surprised, since they had just played Dallas.

That won't happen in Philly. You start hatin' on Dallas especially being from Texas and they will bond with you. Of course I lived in the northeast for years and knew how to act amongst them.

Personally, this is pretty creepy for me lol. This is the 2nd time, this has happened to me. In our 1st game vs GB, I was talking to a fan on the Packers forum that was going to Philly and supporting his team and he never posted back either.

I'm starting to think our fans, chop opposing fans up and serve them as Cheesesteaks or something.

Thats what I like to hear. Tbh, we might have the worse security in the league. I would have tossed the Deion heckler out in 2 minutes if I was a bodyguard at the game.

It just goes to show you, how far we've come since the days of our old stadium. Primetime game, against a team for Texas and you make it out unscathed.

15 years ago, who knows lol but I'm glad you had fun. Did you stop for a cheesesteak while there?

My brother-in-law lives in Philly. He and his wife are bona fide foodies and they took us all over the place. We had all kinds of INCREDIBLE food. We actually didn't get cheesesteaks, believe it or not! But we visit them once a year or so, so next time I bet we get some!
