Eagles Fans Seek Papal Blessing For Sam Bradford's Knees

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Philadelphia Eagles fans will do whatever it takes to get their team to the Promised Land, even if that means seeking divine help. One fan recently started a petition on Change.org to have the Pope bless quarterback Sam Bradford’s knees.

The petition reads, “The Pope is coming to our city! Our city! With this Eagles season coming up, a lot of our Super Bowl hopes rely on Sam Bradford’s knees staying healthy. So, with one of the most religious representatives in the world visiting our wonderful place we call home, how about we get him to bless Bradford’s knees during his visit to Philly! This town deserves a Super Bowl and a healthy Bradford is the only way we will have a parade down Broad Street!”

Less than four days later, the petition is up to 2,170 supporters. Pope Francis will make his first visit to the United States in September. He’ll spend two days in Philly, the city of brotherly love and bane to hitchhiking robots.

From all accounts Sam is having a tremendous first training camp with the Eagles. But, he was off to a similar start last year when he suffered a re-tear of his left ACL which sidelined him for all of 2014.

Maybe a papal blessing is just what Bradford and the Eagles need to get over the hump in the NFC East.
