While I respect your opinion, I see things a little bit differently concerning the Eagles. They are on the upswing, especially after the Cowvomits game. Much like we've done in the past (early Gibbs, Schotenheimer) we could string wins together at the end of the season even though we were out of contention. Additionally, McNabb could be auditioning for a new team and the Eagles, as a whole, can let it all hang loose without having to worry about the playoffs. All these factors combined could play in our favor. I hope. Unfortunately, hope is not a plan, but it's all we've got.

Re: Wk 16: Vikings vs. Redskins Playoff Showdown.

The key to beating the Vikes is winning the turnover battle. We saw how far protecting the ball went against the Giants, a team that certainly capitalizes on mistakes by the opponent. Well, Minnesota is much the same. Everyone wants to talk about their great running attack and ability to stop the run, but Minn's turnover ratio is +7, which they have used to their advantage in defeating teams with mediocre records or worse. We all know how our turnover equation has tilted distastrously to the negative side in the close games we've lost to mediocre or dominant teams. Collins is very careful to protect the football, and it seems the Skins have placed a renewed emphasis on avoiding turnovers over the last few contests. If we continue our relatively miscue-free trend, I think we'll be good enough to outwit the Vikings with our offensive and defensive schemes. It's not like they're a 12-2 club vying for home-field advantage, and it's not like they have a stud QB who can single-handedly engineer a victory. The times we have faced a QB with that trait this season, we have neutralized his play (Favre and Romo).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but even if the Saints win out....if the Giants lose both games, and we win out....we're in and the Giants are out....right??? I think that's our best scenario.

Correct, 247. Don't surrender to the idea the Eagles will lose to NO just yet. The Saints are a schizophrenic team, and the Dirty Birds might have enough Dirty "D" to contain Brees and Co. Though, the NYG losing out would be the way we all dream it to happen, I'm sure....
