Don't question Eagles fans' willingness to go to new lengths.

With Pope Francis visiting Philadelphia in late September, Eagles fans have started a petition at to have him bless the former Rams QB's knees:

The Pope is coming to Philly! 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! Please sign this petition and Go Eagles and Welcome to Philly, Pope Francis!!!!

Supporters reasons for signing include:

Sam Bradford deserves to be healed by the pope's blessing. he's humble and dedicated but has been plagued by injuries, this is his time to shine

I want to see a .gif of the Pope rubbing Bradford's knees

A healthy Bradford would be a... Godsend.

Pretty sure the Pontifex Maximus is a Saints fan, so don't hold your breath Eagles fans.
