Kudos to the Eagles

Recommended Posts

They really showed a level of determination that the Cowboys can only fantasize about.  They will be a force in the NFC for the next decade, there is no doubt in my mind.

Agreed. I hope to see the Eagles and Rams battling it out for NFC dominance for years to come.

I agree.  The Rams have a sharp young coach and a great foundation.

Hopefully.  Shame about Wentz.  Hopefully not a sign of things to come.

The shame of it all, is that the Patriots will more than likely waltz their way to another SB title.

They don't get to play the Titans every week.  I'd argue that 3 or 4 of the AFC playoff teams wouldn't have played postseason football if they were in the NFC.

I agree and obviously they don't play the Titans, who don't belong in the playoffs, every week.  I hope the Saints and Steelers win tomorrow as they have enough defense and plenty if offense to challenge the Pats.  I don't believe the Vikings and, certainly not the Jags, have enough offense to get it done.

Can't say it doesn't leave a very bitter taste in my mouth to see the Eagles play such tough and determined football but I will bow and give credit where it's due. Hope my Cowboys can match their level of intensity in the years to come because it will certainly take a valiant effort to get by the East for as you said years to come. 

 

That goal line stand showed some grit. I was just sure the Falcons had them beat but I should have known better. They are no more good in my book. Choke artists the lot of them. I will never forgive them for giving the SB away.

 

Brady is just too good. I am kind of tired of watching him role over everyone but I love his level of play that makes monster games to beat him.

A Wentz v Brady matchup would have been epic.  Foles will be chickenfeed against Brady.

I think the Vikings, with home field, definitely have a shot if they get there.  Of the three NFC teams remaining, however, the Saints are best equipped to win against the Pats on a neutral field.

 

....notice I never mentioned any AFC team but the Pats.  They're a lock, I'm afraid.

agreed...congrats to the eagles....they tried like hell to hand that game to ATL but they still pulled it out....

 

it was getting annoying watching the rams and eagles do everything in their power to basically drive ATL to the NFC title game....i dont know why...i sort of hate ATL and matt ryan now...and i used to like him....i think it might be something about julios TD output this year but i dunno lol

I think people may be underestimating how good Minnesota's defense is.  And their offense is actually better than average.

That's the sad part, I'm not. 

 

The thing is Tom Brady will go down as the greatest QB who ever lived. If the Vikings get there, I think the Pats roll them in their house. I hope not, I want a good game.

The Steelers rolled the Vikings earlier in the year, the Redskins put up 30 on them and lost, and the Panthers beat them putting up over 30 points. So this defense can be scored on and the Patriots will do just that, not to mention I think the Saints do today.

The Vikings defense gave up the fewest points and the fewest yards of any defense this season.  Pointing out 2 or 3 games where they gave up 30 points doesn't mean much.  Only 4 teams scored more than 19 points on them this season.  That is dominant.

Agreed and I understand those points, but they have shown weaknesses and against all teams who can run and pass the ball interchangeably. Should be interesting to see them playing against the Saints today, who can do both but they did beat them earlier in the year.  However, the playoffs are a different animal. Being home should help. 

 

ETA: And pointing out those 4 games does mean something.  It means it can happen, as it already has and it happened against 3 of 4 teams who are/ were playoff teams.

Last year , the Cowboys dominated and everyone said they were going to rule the roost in the east for a while . This year , they played a big boy schedule and ill be generous in saying Dak had some growing pains . Wentz is the real deal for sure and they will be formidable as hell, but lets not anoint them just yet . That being said , that was a gritty ballsy playoff win against a very potent offense. I tip my cap to them for sure
