Loomis haunted by two Super Bowl near misses
 
“Look, for the rest of my life, I’m going to feel like, ‘We were this close to being in three Super Bowls,'” Loomis said. “And hopefully it’s more than that. . . . Listen, I felt the same way after ’11 when we got beat in San Francisco. The path to getting to the Super Bowl was right there in front of us. Now, look, we would’ve had to complete it — I’m not saying we would have, no different from this one. But there was a path.”

Well not really. We didnt even make it past the divisional round this year or in 11. So really we were a game away from even competing for it. It not a given that we would have beaten the Giants in 11 and I dont think there was another team in the NFL that could have beaten the Eagles the way they played last week.
People act like we lost the NFCCG twice by 1 point with zero seconds on the clock and we didnt even make it there, its like going 0-16 and saying "well we were only 16 games away from being undefeated."
Every team who has ever gone to the playoffs could say the same thing.
We were much closer in 06.
To lose in the divisional round and consider yourself "close" to being in the Super Bowl is kind of a loser mentality.

Maybe if we would have had a black QB like Donte Culpepper we could have made it.

The current near miss haunts most of us everyday. Diggs running down
that sideline keeps replaying during the lowest hours of the night.
My advice is find the best Psycho-Therapist you can and see if he
can remove Stefon and the color purple out of your head.

I barely slept that night. I'd fall asleep for a few minutes and wake back up. Each time I woke up it would immediately start to replay in my head. It was worse than a nightmare. Took a while to shake that feeling of stunned disbelief, and the pain is gonna hurt until we win our next super bowl. Watching the queens get stomped last week did take some of the sting out of it though.

To be honest, I have never seen a replay of that play. Not one. The original in my mind is enough.
