I agree. But it very confusing. Why didn't Jerry Jones demand the roof to be closed in Philly? And if you don't have a roof the least you could do is turn the heat up. Was anybody checking the balls? Aw, Jerry. My brother lives in Dallas. I will hear about it from him. It's draining.

As I knew would happen, once the game started, my lizard brain took over and I was all in for the Iggles. And I get an un-natural amount of pleasure out of watching the Cowboys fail. As much as watching the Patriots fail, but the Patriots rarely do and the Cowboys are a pretty reliable buzz for the likes of me. I love that the Eagles ran a bunch of cripples out there and beat a talented team that was mostly healthy. Mostly through sheer guts and just wanting it more.

Assuming the Eagles beat the Giants next week - they should but it's far from a sure thing after taking OT to beat them in Philly two weeks ago - they'll face the best wild card team in the NFC, which is Green Bay, Minnesota, Seattle, or San Francisco. I don't see Philly being competitive with any of those teams, although they did somehow find a way to beat Green Bay early in the season. But they got beaten soundly by Seattle and Minnesota and were a much stronger, healthier team then than they are now...

Oh well, today's game was fun to watch anyway. Nothing better than watching Jerry Jones and Chris Christie up in the owner's box crying in their beer... And now Jerry has to screw up his courage to fire Garrett. Or maybe he won't be able to pull the trigger again...

I get it fellas. I do. But, as you said Rob, itís a win for them...today. I guess they should enjoy it while they can, as short lived as that may be.

Agreed Ray. And therein lies the rub.

But you have to admit there are some um... hard to dismiss, ignore or explain away issues over a 10 year span.
I am not coming at this from the perspective of a Pats hater.

The Eagles showed 'spunck' today. Dallas, not so much. As we move forward we should look for 'spunck'. You know it when you see it. That's what it takes to go far.

I beg your pardon, Sir. The Patriots are as pure as a newborn lamb.

LOL... I think we may have some common ground. I was not trying to start anything negative or flame the Deflatriots.. I mean Patriots. Just ribbing.

As far as Coboys vs Eagles... the Eagles managed to win the game they could not lose, and as far as the spunk, I think that came from the defensive side.

Saints have beaten all three outside in the past and in cold weather. The reason we Southerners like our domes should be obvious to all you guitar players here. Domes are LOUD and they donít call the Super Dome the Thunder Dome for nothing. Yea, I want us to get #1 seed, would be sweet.

But the Saints are 1-5 in away games in the playoffs under Brees/Payton.

Default Meanwhile.....

The hapless Bengals earned the rights to the #1 pick in the upcoming draft with their loss to the Dolphins in OT today.
I feel sorry for Joe Burrows or any other player destined to play for the Brown family in Cincinnati.

He was hurt a bit today. Didn't practice much this week.

Average might be a bit harsh, but I think he is overrated. The really good QBís make things happen when such an important game is on the line. And Dak failed to throw a single touchdown against an average at best team. And the Cowboys are my secondary team since thatís my wifeís team, so itís not like Iím just hating on them. Now they need to win and eagles need to lose next week if they wanna play in the playoffs. The number one offense in the NFL fighting for a number four seed or no playoffs. How does that even happen?

FOX SPORTS brought up an interesting stat yesterday that the Saints have the strongest at home playoff record of all the leading playoff NFC teams currently so yes itís a big thing for them to open the playoffs at home. I just feel real good about this team. They keep coming back against adversity going 5-0 when Brees was injured and playing the last 3 games with key defensive players out.

I realize the rest of the country doesn't care , but how 'bout them AZ. Cards ! Lets face it, they sucked all year, near the bottom in just about every stat. But some how always seem to play good in Seattle.

Yesterday they played their best all around game of the year , holding the Seahawks to 1 TD and a couple field goals. They never gave Russel Wilson a chance to work any of his magic.

Congrats to them, great game !!
