The Road To The Super Bowl 2018

Recommended Posts

What everyone but the Philly faithful already counted the Eagles out? Nicky Foles has it in him and we have a pretty good defense. I think there will be some surprised national sports casters on Saturday.

The Titans will get murdered at New England.  The Jaguars will get smoked at the Steelers if they play like they did against Buffalo.  Buffalo didn't deserve to even be a playoff team.

 

Atlanta is a 2.5 point favorite, as a 6 seed, at the top seed Eagles.

 

The Saints are going to find things MUCH more difficult as a road team against the Vikings than they did at the friendly confines of the Superdome.  SKOL

 

Saints aint the same offense or defense 😎

I am glad the media is counting out Philly.  They haven't had anything to play for since the Giants game (which Foles played very well in might i add) and the offense was very very basic the last two games.  I truly think Pedersen didn't want to give teams any film on Foles or keys to the offense.  If the defense continues to play like they have been and they commit to the run they should be able to take care of Atlanta.  One side note is Matt Ryan grew up not far from Philly and I am sure he will be distracted somewhat by all the family nearby.  

 

Gonna be a good one.

Yeah, I wouldn't count Philly out with Foles...

 

That said, it's a very tough NFC mix with Eagles, 

Vikes, and Saints in the mix. Maybe Falcons will

surprise, as well.

 

AFC? Pats or Steelers. Can't see anyone else 

making it to the final game.

NFC is pretty good top to bottom.  I do agree about the AFC but that Jax defense is nothing to laugh at either.  I also have a feeling NE loses in the AFC championship game.  Titans are also playing with house money so who knows what will happen there

Agree with Jax (Sacksonville) D. That's a top D, and I 

am pleased the Bills hung with them for most of the game.

 

Not sure the Titans will go past Pats. But its anyone's

to win. Wouldn't shed a tear if Pats lose to Titans or victor

of Steelers/Jax.

As a Broncos fan I can't see anything on the horizon. It's

very disappointing.

 

:tearyeyed:

I know what you mean. My Cowboys for roughly 20 years were very disappointing. Finally started coming out of their funk in the past 3 years only to start screwing up again this season. It's ok though. Win, lose or tie, I'm a die hard Cowboys fan til I die! Good luck with your Broncos. 😎

I think the Raiders just got closer to winning a SB.

For sure. I would root for them just to see the mark Davis interviews.

Well, let's not forget that the Giants beat the Patriots in two Super Bowls and they

had VIRTUALLY NO CHANCE the first time around. Take your pick, all the teams still

standing have a shot.

We appreciate you still pulling for us :)  The Eagles defense is going to be the key as is the running game.  I truly think that they toned down the offense and played it very vanilla the last two weeks to not give any tape on Foles or the schemes they want to run come playoff time.People are focusing on the last two games but also forget that Foles threw 4 TDs against a division rival to secure a first round bye.

 

I think we get past the Falcons but the game against either Minnesota or the Saints is gonna be tough.  Minnesota is a very well rounded team and their defense is straight up nasty

Unfortunately for the Eagles, they're gonna lose. Foles is a backup for a reason, 1 fluke year, he's not good enough. What sucks is Wentz loses the opportunity to gain playoff experience. Next year, they'll be back if Wentz stays healthy.

We match up well against the Falcons.  I agree that Foles is a backup for a reason but he has the ability to not make us lose a game as well.  It is going to come down to smart coaching and defense.  We have a very good running game that can hit you in multiple ways.  Cox is going to have to create havoc in the middle and collapse the pocket like he has all season.

I see the Falcons coming g together at the right time, they look good. Foles is rob johnson part 2.

I stand corrected..Eagles are on to the NFC championship game.

Once again an Atlanta team finds new and innovative ways to disappoint.

Forever known for the Knee-ster-ception...oh wait, nevermind.

 

Sorry Atlanta, just wasn't in the cards this year. Credit to the

Eagles and a lot of heart. Foles shook off first quarter jitters.

Eagles defense is no joke...they play a lot better at home too only letting up like 12 points a game.  Atlanta wasn't ready for it and i would venture a guess they looked past us a little bit and now they have an entire offseason to think about it...

How 'bout them Vikings?  What a finish!

Next week's games should be a lot of fun.

Eagles vs Vikings will be a defense game. Little points, the winner will probably face the Patriots....again.

IMO, only upside to the Steelers loss in the playoffs is that the Patriots signed James Harrison for no good reason. He'll be cut at the end of the season.

They signed him because they needed someone to set the edge on runs and rush the qb, the 2 things he's doing effectively for them. I don't think for a second he was signed for leverage against the steelers, he's been playing way too much if that's the case. He sat all season, so the pats got fresh legs on a good defensive player.

Fresh legs and something to prove. I really wanted the Chiefs to get him for those 2 reasons. Wasn't at all surprised that the Patriots picked him up.
