Eagles’ Joe Banner: Steelers Aren’t More Successful Than Eagles

Eagles President Joe Banner recently held court on Philadelphia’s sports talk radio station, 610-WIP, to discuss all things Birds including the state of Andy Reid’s future.

The interview also featured Banner’s thoughts on the AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

Banner asserted that the Steelers were no more successful than his Eagles over the last decade, despite Pittsburgh’s two Super Bowl wins since 2005.

His belief was based upon Pittsburgh not reaching the postseason in nine of the last 11 seasons like the Eagles. Also, Philly advanced to a conference championship game on five occasions.

Conversely, the Steelers played in five championship games since 2001, appeared in three Super Bowls (winning two), and own 12 playoff wins to Philly’s 10.

Meanwhile, the Eagles have not won an NFL championship since 1960.

Yep, I don’t get it either.
