Local 4th Grader Has Best Quote Ever About the 2012 Eagles

Dec 5, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

A couple of Eagles players including DeMeco Ryans, Trent Cole, and DRC visited a school in Montgomery County yesterday to help promote a healthy lifestyle as part of the NFL’s PLAY 60 campaign. All nice and stuff.

But what really caught our eye was the true wisdom of young 4th grader Sam Smith when asked about his favorite team, the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Even though they’re not very good this year, they were good in 2004.”

So true. So, so true, Sam. Way to study your history, kid. How old was your typical current-day 4th grader in 2004? Two? Were they even born yet?

Which makes me wonder: at which point exactly do these kids turn from nice little kids into jaded, typical Eagles fans? Part of me was surprised the youngsters didn’t even boo.
