    We see the ATL/PHI game the same...I think MIN is going to win a close game at home...the key for them is not giving NO any short fields. The MIN DEF I think is a better matchup vs NO than CAR...they are better off the edge, better in coverage...Saints need the RBs to come thru to give Drew enough time.

    O ya the experience of Brees over Keenum is a huge edge but it mostly ends there

    Thielen and Diggs at least have 1 game under their belt.

    Saints have most of their key players with not much either.

    So if Keenum facing Saints D can offset Brees vs ours. We should be ok

    They got a road playoff win. That certainly a step in the right direction.

    I bet the Eagles do.

    And if the Atlanta defense plays as good as they did in the wildcard round, you’re going to care about them as well. It may be a long day for Nick “3rd down conversion” Foles.

    We didn't even use 3rd downs when we smoked Atlanta last time. 1st down, 2nd down, 1st down, 2nd down, touchdown. 1st down, 2nd down, 1st down, 2nd down, touchdown.

    Seems a lot of folks have already penned New Orleans as the NFC Champ.



    I like Minnesota at home.

    I don't really buy into the whole "overcoming the choke" theories. I think the Falcons have shown late into the season that they are still legit. They got into the dance and looking to get to the NFCCC. That's pretty good, imo. They have enough talent to win it all if they get on a roll. Not easy but doable. I don't think they have to prove anything to anybody, just go out and ball.

    By "they" I assume you are referring to the Falcons?

    Because there is no question which team is far worse now.

    Well considering the last time the Eagles and Falcons faced off was last year, I'd say the Eagles are a better team now.

    So you think the Eagles are better with Nick Foles than with Carson Wentz?

    I think the 2017 Eagles right now with Nick Foles are better than the 2016 Eagles with Carson Wentz.

    I would agree. Until I look at the QBs in that game.

    I'm expecting a Falcons Saints NFCC game. The Falcons might be peaking at the right time.

    ehh. I gotta disagree. Nick Foles has zero intangibles. When a team has a chance to game plan against him, he is awful.

    For me, they only need to go as far as Philly and back.
