The second the Vikings tweet, they respond.

We get it. You hammered the Vikings 38-7. You then won the Super Bowl, how about enjoying it?

We're talking to you, Eagles fans, who seemingly can't let a single tweet from the Vikings go by without almost instantly tweeting a reminder of the NFC Championship game.

This obsessive behavior is comparable to the army of trolls who've barracked Cincinnati Zoo with Harambe memes ever since the gorilla's death.

This has been a good week for the Vikings. They've signed THE top free agent QB in Kirk Cousins and on Friday made an already stingy defense (NFC game notwithstanding) even more formidable with the signing of Sheldon Richardson.

They were contenders last year, but the Vikings are putting in the moves that now has them in the conversation as Super Bowl 53 favorites.

Maybe it's insecurity then from Eagles fans, who have seen their team reach the pinnacle and now fear that the only way is down – which is why they feverishly got to typing the second the Vikings put another piece of the puzzle in place.

It's not just on the Vikings page either. Look at this response to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Seriously guys, just enjoy being champions.
