    Being an Idaho resident this year, it seems almost criminal that I've never seen the movie in its entirety.

    The Eagles did their part in taking out the Bears for the Lions, but the Lions had already done their part in collapsing in the 4th....

    On the wins thing, as soon as Vick was out of the picture, it was almost smooth sailing. Now go lose at JJ'sDC and be done with it.

    Keep saying bad stuff. I'm superstitious and I think you're bringing good luck with your sour posts.

    The Eagles SHOULD beat Dallas without any problems. But the game is in a hostile environment and hell, the Lions should have stomped the Giants and they were freaking at HOME!! Plus the Eagles are a young group. So you never know.

    Eagles 31

    Dallas 24

    I can't wait. My stomach is all tied up in knots.

    To make matters even more peculiar we are watching the game with another couple that we had a huge falling out with about thre years ago. They asked to get together to watch this game.

    Not only that but.. They are both from Texas. They are passionate Dallas fans.
    The Cowboys and Eagles are bitter rivals. Lunacy, huh?

    Hopefully the Eagles win and we don't kill each other.

    I'm making rules:

    1. Cheer all you like

    2. No in your faces

    3. No derogatory comments toward the other team

    4. Don't being up Boise State ( yup they LOVE them too)

    5. Eat lots of pizza

    6. Drink lots of spirits

    7. Have lots of fun :)

    Eagles 24 - Cowboys 22

    That was scary. Eagles couldn't punch it in from a half yard out but made a couple of big defensive stops. I'm not sure if Foles was choking or Dallas just played good D for once.

    No matter. Eagles the #3 seed in the playoffs so we have a home game next Saturday.BRING ON THE SAINTS!!!

    Eagles almost had a comeback win like the Colts, but too much time left on the clock and they were playing against the old comeback kid in Brees.

    When that winning FG went through the uprights, NBC could have just turned off the sound, because you couldn't hear a sound in that stadium.

    Both Luck and Brees win despite throwing at least two picks in their respective game. If that had been Stafford, those picks would have have been in the last 8 minutes of the game to squelch a comeback or help the other team win.

    Good season for the Eagles!!

    Tough loss by the Eagles. You could see it coming all the way once Philly scored. The Eagles were almost better off just letting the Saints score so they could get the ball back for the final possession.

    Agree with Dre on the good season for the Eagles, but I would even say REALLY good!They rose up from the ashes to go 10-6 from 4-12.

    Agree with Bill on just shoulda pet Saints score quick. I saw it unfolding just the same way and said the same thing.

    Well, disappointing finish. The offense showed no spark until it was too late. But I've no complaints. I see a very bright future. Coach Kelly will learn from his mistakes as will the team. They will draft guys to fit Kelly's needs. I'm not sure Foles is the franchise quarterback. There were times today where although I knew they couldn't put Vick in but they sure could have used his running threat.


    They got what they deserved tonight.

    As a Seattle resident, I'm glad for the Saints win, although 49'ers spot would have been epic. Still more games to play, but looking forward to a Seahawks vs. Broncos Super bowl.

    Foles is the future, Vick is the past.

    I dunno. Those sure seem to be the best two teams ( Broncos and Seahawks) but I was reading something earlier today that said it is rare for the two best teams to meet in the Super Bowl. It said one of the teams don't make it ( I forgot what the figures were though).

    Oh well, I hope the Seahawks make it there for you. I don't know who is going to knock them off in that crazy Richter scale stadium of yours, lol. I wish I hadn't got sick right before my trip to watch the Eagles play the Seahawks a couple of years back. It would've been cool meeting up with you, although that game by Vince Young was said to be the worst performance by a quarterback in the NFL that season.

    The family said how beautiful the city and stadium were. If I could live anywhere in the continental U.S. It would be in Oregon or Washington... But anyhow, have you been able to attend any Seahawks games this year??

    Not this year... the hype is crazy, just like the ticket prices! I've been to 4 games over the last couple of seasons, and have had to tread the line between Lions and Seahawks fan over the years. The Lions have made it an easy choice, despite my loyalty.

    The Seahawks over the last few seasons have built a world class defense, and a secondary that dominates games. Reminds me a bit of the Robert Porcher years of the Lions, but with a much, much better secondary.

    Honestly, years of following the Lions really took me away from the NFL, but the Seahawks have brought me back. These guys are legit.

    Exactly . Don't let the Lions ruin your love for the NFL

    The thing about Seattle is that people tend to think of them in terms of their great defense but they have one of the too offenses too with Marshawn Lynch running the ball and Russel Wilson slinging it.

    After the draft, jAndy Reid said that the Eagles wanted either Foles or Wilson, but Wilson got snatched up by Seattle. I sure wish he was running chip Kelly's plays.
