“Dad, what’s a Super Bowl ring?”

“I don’t know son, we’re Eagles' fans.”

A photo of a Bud Light promotional Eagles can with the words “Finally, a beer that won’t leave a ring on the table.”

“The moment you realize the best player in Eagles’ history was Mark Wahlberg,” with a picture of Wahlberg playing Vincent Papale in “Invincible.”

Yes, I’ve heard and seen every conceivable meme and barb against my Philadelphia Eagles for years, which as one would probably imagine, has increased tenfold since the Eagles overcame a late-season injury to most valuable player-caliber quarterback Carson Wentz and advanced to their first Super Bowl in 13 years.

And standing across the field from us, attempting to stop us from winning our first Super Bowl, will be, who else, but Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.

The Patriots, of course, are playing in their eighth Super Bowl since 2001 and attempting to win their sixth title. The Eagles have been to two prior to this year, having lost them both.

At the beginning of the season, I had high hopes for the Eagles, but they have surpassed all my expectations, especially given the litany of injuries that have piled up throughout the season.

We lost, most notably, two future Hall-of-Famers early in the season in running back and return man Darren Sproles, in addition to left tackle Jason Peters.

And, of course, Wentz, who has been hailed as the savior of the Eagles and the next superstar at the position by many pundits and prognosticators.

As the lynchpin, when Wentz went down, I felt that any chance at a Super Bowl berth was lost.

But never in my wildest dreams did I expect our backup quarterback — and starter from just four years ago — Nick Foles to lead us through the National Football Conference playoffs and onto Super Bowl LII.

After being traded to the Rams in 2015 and later having a short stint with the Kansas City Chiefs — both largely in backup capacities — it seems the rest of the league forgot Foles was a Pro-Bowler in 2013 and threw 27 touchdowns against two interceptions, including being the first player in NFL history to throw for seven touchdowns and record a perfect passer rating in a single game.

Make no mistake about it, while he has not performed at a high level with consistency over his six-year career, Foles has the experience and the pedigree to be in this spot.

He played mistake-free football throughout the NFC playoffs and had a passer rating of more than 100 in playoff wins over Atlanta and Minnesota. He managed the game well and made no mistakes against Atlanta, and went off against the Vikings and threw for three touchdowns — including a perfect passer rating in the second half — to help the Eagles win the NFC title.

Of course, standing in Philly’s way are the mighty Patriots, which essentially everyone I have ever met has not let me forget over the past two weeks.

The Eagles are the underdogs in the Super Bowl to be sure, but it is nothing new for them. Despite having home-field advantage through the NFC playoffs, the Falcons and Vikings were favorites in their playoff games — and both teams lost.

But, let’s be honest: The Eagles don’t have a chance, right?

I mean, I can’t think of a single time there was a young, upstart team with nothing to lose and a backup quarterback leading them into the Super Bowl against a seemingly unbeatable juggernaut that were the defending Super Bowl champions, right? Right!?

(Patriot fans remembering Rams/Patriots 2001 Super Bowl).

That 2001 Patriots team was special. And you always remember your first time.

Most of the elder statesmen Patriot fans I’ve talked to over the last few weeks have told me how much they suffered in the decades leading up to Super Bowl 36 and how satisfying it was to see Adam Vinatieri split the uprights as zeroes hung on the clock to give them their first Super Bowl victory.

They suffered through quarterbacks like Matt Cavanaugh and Tony Eason. They were dismantled by the ’85 Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XX and lost to the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXI, made memorable by a kickoff return for a touchdown by Green Bay’s Desmond Howard.

When they beat the Rams as 14-point underdogs in the Super Bowl, they felt it was owed to them. It was their time.

Now? I feel like this is our time.

I’ve been an Eagles' fan since 1992. I’ve been fortunate enough to watch exciting players on both sides of the ball. Guys like Randall Cunningham and Donovan McNabb on offense, or guys like Reggie White and Brian Dawkins on defense.

But we’ve also suffered through the likes of quarterbacks Ty and Koy Detmer, Doug Pederson (who in two years was a better coach than he ever was a player), Bobby Hoying, Bubby Brister, Rodney Peete, A.J. Feeley, Kevin Kolb and Mark Sanchez, among others.

We went to four NFC championship games in a row and lost three, before finally winning one and falling to the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX. We got to another NFC title game in 2008 and lost to Arizona.

The Eagles have one of the fiercest defenses in the league and with a front four like Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, Tim Jernigan and Vinny Curry — with Chris Long and Derek Barnett waiting in the wings to spell any of them at any moment — they have the potential to give Brady fits and keep him anything but comfortable in the pocket.

Despite that, the Patriots are the favorites — as they should be with Wentz out of the picture — but in terms of the dynasty they have created over nearly two decades, as far as teams that have made the Super Bowl, I think it would be fair to say this Patriots team has the least amount of talent.

They have made it almost entirely on the backs of Brady — the GOAT (Greatest of All-Time) — and Belichick, the greatest coach in NFL history. And, most of the time, that is enough for the Patriots to win the Super Bowl.

The Patriots are a seasoned group, they do not beat themselves, they do not panic in the fourth quarter and their experience about being in a Super Bowl — from the two weeks leading up to the big game to how to keep their emotions in check — give them an advantage in that regard.

But, short of the advantage at coach, quarterback and tight end, I feel like top to bottom, the Eagles, in terms of football players 1-53, are simply better than the Patriots this season. And the Eagles are hungry, they are not overconfident and I feel they all have something to prove.

We have been the underdogs since Wentz went down. And come Monday morning, the newspaper headlines could very well read: “Dogs maul GOAT.”

Fly, Eagles Fly.
