6:03 am
panthers fan so we talked with him about what it's like to have a team that is the doing well. >> the way i see it, eagles are a good team and to be dismantled the way it was this year and have a 6-9 record, it should have like 11-5 at least. what can you say. >> how does it feel to have a team that's actually on top right now? >> great. really great. >> are you rubbing it in to the eagle fans now? >> right now, the way i look at it, i'm glad where we're at right now, and i feel like you know, i would love to see you all in the playoffs but that's not going to happen. unfortunately. >> reporter: at least not this season. a lot of these fans are hoping that next season, whatever happens, that we'll be doing a lot better than we are right now. of course there is still one
