    The Eagles are in the final four and hosting the NFC Championship. Saying they have no chance at this point is a little silly.

    He knows this, he gets defensive cause he knows the AFC East has been a gigantic pile of crap for the last 15 years, so he throws out silliness like "No your division sucks"

    My guess is a NE/Pitt matchup would be the primetime late matchup

    I just read last week in a link that was posted on another thread that Philly had the easiest strength of schedule in the NFL. That is why I wrote it. Could it be that one used last year's records to determine SoS and the other is a fresh metric using this year's final records?

    As for the NFCE, it had been a dumpster fire for years. The whole division just oozed mediocrity until Philly's run this season. Saying it is any better than the AFCE is crazy talk and like most around here, you neglect to consider that New England has been kicking EVERYONE'S ass for a long time. In the Brady/BB era they have a better record outside their division than in it.

    22nd toughest based on this year (playing a 3-13 team twice will hurt that number obviously). 10th toughest based on last season. I didn't say the NFC East was better than the AFC East. They were nearly identical this season. Last year the NFC East had the #1 and #5 seed in the playoffs and went 39-24-1.

    Cleo Lemon is the 2nd best QB in the AFC East in the last 15 years

    He'd be the best Giants QB since Phil Simms retired, what's your point?

    The Eagles have to be hoping the Vikings win and not the Saints.

    Keenum in his first playoffs on the road or Brees? Brees has been there before.

    They would do better vs the Vikings IMO. The Saints would win.

    It's not like anyone around here thinks you know much about football and pretending that your water head QB plays defense is not helping your cause.

    Just sayin.

    Yeah, I think people that know football know how great Eli was in both playoff runs in 2007 and 2011, they have this Google thing out there where you can actually look it up....

    Dont give the Giants defense too much credit, neither defense was a Top 15 unit those seasons, they just got lucky and ran into Tom Brady

    2 Game winning SB drives

    Only in your world where Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning are shitty QB's, would anyone care about your opinion of Eli Manning in those postseasons

    I don't think the Eagles won so much as the Falcons lost. They go hot and cold. Not a team to bet for, or against.
