This is just a very pleasant coincidence.


Alright Dave! i dont see how people put the eagles down, it will be a good game and hopefully the birds will take advantage.


This city is in its Glory! Literally

im not putting the eagles down, im just raising the patriots up. they held one of the most prolific offenses in nfl history to a mere three points. they completely dominated and shut down the running attack of the steelers. they've already rendered such awesome receivers as stokley, harrison, wayne, ward, burress to be non factors in a game. sure, the eagles are a good team, they won the nfc. are they as good as indy who the pats were able to crush? no. do i think theyre even as good as pittsburgh who the patriots dismantled? no.

is it in the bag? no, but do i think the patriots could easily run away with this? yep.

I agree Stlelevation except i think the eagles WOULD beat the steelers and the colts.

for a brief while i was a patriots fan... when parcells left the giants and the disgusting ray handley took over, and i was about 13ish... i decided to root for the pats instead 'cause i liked bledsoe in college and loved parcells.

then when i was 18ish i decided to go back home and become a giants fan again.

thus then... as normal... the pats go on to win two super bowls with a shot for a third, proving once again that i am the black kiss of death.

yayy let's be a mets fan instead of a yankee fan! let's be an islander fan instead of a ranger fan! let's go back to being a giants fan instead of staying a patriots fan!

i suck.

How come you picked the Steelers higher than your Eagles in the playoff pool thread then? Not much confidence there.

Let's think for a second:

Pittsburgh: 15-1, Best rookie season by a quarterback ever, #1 defense in the NFL

Philadelphia: 13-3, Terrell Owens out at least until the Bowl, Brian Westbrook at halfback.

I was just playing the odds here.

I think the Eagles' best shot would have been if there wasn't the extra week off this year. While the 2 week layoff gives T.O. an extra week to heal(I still think he won't play), it also gives Richard Seymour an extra week to heel, but most importantly, it gives Beilichick and staff an extra week to devise a game plan...not good news for Eagles fans.

I certainly don't deny the odds there, but most people pick for their favorite team (if their fave is involved, anyway). I know I picked the Pats even though the odds didn't look so good there either, with all the injuries. I had faith, though, that they would get it done.

Of course. But you have to admit, if there's a city out there that needs a championship, its philly. New England has been riding high the past couple years.
