No, it just means Cowboys and 49er fans will be joined by Steelers fans (the difference being Steelers fans won't NEED to live in the past like me and Rush do).

That's always the argument thrown up by Eagle fan. "Stop living in the past".

Eagles are going to lose their 4th straight championship game. That's even worse than the Bills losing 4 straight Super Bowls. Ah hahaha.

there's not much else to chat about considering fantasy season is over. If you don't like my anti-Eagle threads, you don't have to read them.

god you are obnoxious.

stop living in the past is relevant, your team stinks.

and what other than hate and the "vick experience" leads you to think the eagles will lose? objective anlaysis doesn't support that conclusion at all.

eagles d is better, eagles o is better. special teams are a wash (and that is generous)

falcons have a whole extra sack on the eagles for the season, but 30 of their 48 came at home.

they have a feared rushing attack, but it isn;t methodical like other teams, so the effect isn't appreciably different than a pass. vick and dunn aren't going to bang up a defense.

historically the eagles corral dunn, and have bottled vick up with slower personnel.

use your head.

Oh, I don't know, maybe it's the fact that they've lost 3 straight championship games, two of which were at home where they were heavily favored to win. Maybe it's the fact that McNabb is the biggest choker in the world when it comes to championship games. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they have no Terrell Owens, and they may not get their lucky "LJ Smith fumbles into the hands of Freddie Mitchell who just happens to be in the end zone" dumb luck.

Even if they do get past Atlanta, New England's going to embarass them in front of what will probably be a record number of viewers.

I dunno about you guys, but I think I'm sold on the Michael Vick experience. I love watching him play.

There's too many haters out there nowadays. Too much "your team sucks because.." and stuff. Why don't we all just enjoy football and focus on the positives and exciting aspects.

the only reason ive ever hated on vick was because he was overhyped, and i get tired of hearing "how good he will be" or "just wait til he learns the west coast offense" . i love watching him play, he is very exciting. i really hope he turns out to be great qb, its good for football. ;-D :-)

Agreed. I also agree with you about Michael Vick. I think the Falcons will win it all. Why? Because the Seahawks suck!!!! ;-)

Seriously, though, I think the Falcons have a good chance against the Eagles. Their weakness on defense is passing, and TO will be out. I know the Rams don't have the best special teams, but with the way Rossum played last week, you have to think they'll get some pretty decent field position, which will be nice for their ball-control offense. If Atlanta gets ahead, Philly could be in trouble. I think the only problem is Vick's passing game, which actually looked pretty good to me last week (again against the Rams, I know, but he passed for almost 300 in the playoffs 2 years ago vs. the Eagles). Also, I don't buy this whole "AFC is way better than the NFC" thing. All that matters is the best AFC team vs. the best NFC team, not the .600 (or whatever it was) winning percentage in the regular season.

And bagobonez, if you were smart, you'd root FOR the Eagles, because then you could argue the only reason you didn't make the playoffs is because you had to play in the same division as the best team in football, kind of like in college football where traditional rivals root for teams from their conference in the bowl games. Damn that dependent clause!!!

Well, that wouldn't make up for the fact that the other two division opponents both finished 6-10. Dallas didn't make the playoffs because Parcells overated the talent on the team, and Vinny Testaverde ended up being no better than Quincy Carter. Dallas split the games with Philly last year, and almost beat them once this year.

Wow, and I thought the whole Viking/Packer thing was the most hate filled rivalry in the NFL. We're just one big love fest compared to these guys!! Kind of fun sitting back and watching these other guys go at it. Pass the popcorn Canadian Cheesehead, anymore Pepsi there TTT Bone? I'm feeling the love for you guys!!
