Evaluating the winning-ness in attendance Sunday at the Eagles' Lincoln Financial Field

Well look who showed up for the Eagles game Sunday

Update: The Eagles lost to the Seahawks 24-14 Sunday. Looks like all that winning-ness came up just short. Better luck next time.

There was some serious winning power on hand at Lincoln Financial Field for the Eagles-Seahawks game Sunday afternoon.

Perhaps Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie figured -- and hoped -- that some of his guests' winning-ness would rub off on his team as they face the defending Super Bowl champs. We'll be honest: It's not a terrible idea. There is, sometimes, such a thing as good vibes. But we won't know if it actually worked until the game is over (duh), so in the meantime, let's evaluate exactly what kind of winning history Lurie packed in.

Mike Trout:

1 Rookie of the Year (2012)

1 MVP (2014)

28.2 career WAR (four seasons)

Justin Verlander:

1 Rookie of the Year (2006)

1 Cy Young Award (2011)

1 MVP (2011)

41.7 career WAR (10 seasons)

152 career wins

Rory McIlroy:

9 career PGA Tour wins

OK, so that's a lot of wins. If you're trying to get the most life-wins in one place, the trio of Trout, Verlander and McIlroy is not a bad start. 

And we know at least Trout and his winning ways are there for the Eagles:

Hey, Ben Revere (4.2 career WAR) is there too, and the Eagles keep stacking up the winning-ness:

Game time!!

There might be a way for Philadelphia to win even if the Eagles lose the game:

Well, they can keep on dreaming, at least.
