Soon after the Eagles scored a victory on the first day of free agency by signing cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, ESPN/Grantland scribe Bill Simmons took to Twitter for the tweet above.

To those unfamiliar with Simmons language, he is commonly known to provide reverse jinx tweets in hopes of sabotaging the team/player he roots against.

For example, Simmons delivered this one during Game 4 of the 2011 NBA Finals:

Final score: Dallas 86, Miami 83.

He happily acknowledges that he enjoys such a practice.

His Eagles tweet is a clear sign that he is worried about Philly in some form that threatens his New England Patriots.

Bill, I wouldn’t be quite so worried yet.

I’m not convinced that the Eagles offensive line, linebackers, Michael Vick or defensive line will hold up in the long run. Plus, there is the DeSean Jackson mess and a lack of depth at running back.

They’ve got a long way to go before getting to Indy.

Are you they the favorite to win the NFC East? Absolutely.

The NFC favorite to reach the Super Bowl? Not so fast.
