Just horrible.
Your record isn't the point. I already know what your road record is. The point is your great D gives up a few more points a game, then they do at home.

Will you agree on that?

And since we are home, ours gives up less points.

That's what we are holding our hats on. Two evenly matched team... that the home field will make the difference. But, at the end of the day, our stars have to show up and play mistake-free football. We had two costly turnovers that lead to the only points Atlanta had. We can't afford do that again this week.
Sure, I can agree that we give up a few more points on the road than at home. I'm not trying to pick a fight here. You have to understand, other Eagles fans have come on here and simply trolled. If you're here to actually talk football, then welcome. Let's talk!

Obviously your home-field advantage is real. There's no denying that. Heck, you beat us there last year when we were 5-0.

Strictly speaking in football terms, here's why I think we win. Case Keenum is better than Nick Foles.

The media is somehow comparing these two guys equally, simply because neither was a starter at the beginning of the season. No offense, but I think that's laughable. Case Keenum is in the conversation for MVP of the entire NFL -- as is Carson Wentz, to a much higher degree. Nick Foles had a 27-TD, 2-INT season in 2013 with a 119 passer rating and got replaced. Case Keenum doesn't have those gaudy statistics, but the guy is 12-3 as a starter, and he led us to another win in relief, a game we surely would have lost without him. So we can say he's 13-3 as the Vikings' QB. He takes care of the football (mostly) and extends plays with his mobility. Case also has better receivers and a solid running game, with the ability to run inside (Murray) or outside (McKinnon). That will be very important if the Eagles do what I think they'll do, which is stuff inside runs. Finally, Case has had 16 games as the starter with this team. He has the full trust of his teammates, and his timing and chemistry are phenomenal. Foles just hasn't had the time Keenum has.

Otherwise, the teams seem to be very evenly matched. I just think quarterback play is going to be the difference.

Of course, Case Keenum could prove me wrong and throw 3 picks. Every Vikings fan has that fear in the back of his mind. Foles is not a great quarterback, but he has been excellent at avoiding turnovers throughout his career. A couple of bad turnovers by us, and we'll be on the ropes.

Also, please understand -- I believe we'll win because I'm a fan of the Vikings, but I'm not delusional enough to think we'll win easily. And I realize that we could very well lose this game. I just think, barring a huge turnover disparity or a wonky play on special teams, that we have the better quarterback. In the end, I hope that will be the difference.

Yes, but anyone who watched the Vikes last year knew we were perhaps the worst and luckiest 5-0 team in NFL history. Hadn't had an offensive turnover, couldn't run the ball (one of the worst rushing teams in NFL history), and our O-Line was PA-thetic. This is a VERY different team than that one.

I've been to other city's sporting my McNabb jersey. Had good convos with some Charger fans in San Diego. But Philly is another animal when it comes to Eagles / Flyers games... especially in the playoffs. There's no existing beef with the Vikings fans, like it is Dallas or Giants. But this is win or go home, so tempers will be on high.
At this point it feels like you're just trying to keep purple out of the stands ;)

Seriously though, people aren't allowed to just "put their hands on you" and if they do, call the cops and I bet it'll stop.

One advantage I think the Eagles have when comparing quarterbacks; it seems like Foles may not be very good, but he’s not as actively bad as Keenum can be. It’s hard to articulate, but take the pass Keenum chucked up against NO, for example. I do not think Foles would ever attempt to make a play like that.

Foles seems more willing to play within himself and acknowledge what he can’t do, while Keenum is confident in his abilities to a fault.

Foles may play safer but doesn't mean he is. He had 4 turnovers in 3 starts. 2 int's 2 lost fumbles. He's dropped the thing 6 times. Lucky it only 2 lost. Case has only one lost fumble in 11 starts 7 INT's.

In the words of PA, well done young man!! Even Mikey was giving you props for your choice of “home town”.

It was interesting listening to parts of their broadcast (and the morning show). They sure are a confident bunch. I heard a lot of references to the stats being in their favor, but didn’t hear any breakdown of what those stats were. Maybe they did that earlier on the week. Either way, it is a markedly different listening experience than listening to KFAN.

I noticed everyone in Philly is predicting a very low scoring game. If we can surprise them with the offense we’ve seen much of the season, I like our chances.

To EagleRob and Mawby: Regardless of who wins Sunday Nick Foles still sucks. Period. And whoever said they have no change against New England is dead on. I don't like our chances against New England either; but we have to win tomorrow first.

@Cliff - best believe I could care less if its 10, or 10,000 Vikings fans present today. That place is going to be a mad house, it really won't matter. My organizational advisor from college was Vikings fan. Sported his purple proudly... never had a problem. This one day... I'm concerned about him so much, i'm thinking about PM him through FB. This is a safety issue... nothing more.

@ Mosscarter - you are entitled to your opinion, I'm not going to change your mind 2 hours before the game. All we need him to be today is a game manager.

I'd like to respond to a couple more folks on here, but I've got some running around to do, so I'll end it with this...

I take my hat off to you guys for treating me respectfully on here. I apologize for Mawby, but again, I'm doubting he was even an Eagle fan. THere's only 1 reason why you'll hear from me again. That's if we lose. I'll give you guys props and politely excuse myself. If we win, then there's no reason to come back. I'm not a gloater...

Here's to a good game, no injuries since the winner has to be as full of strength as possible to take on the AFC rep.

Piece out! :rock:

I don't get that. Weren't you and others saying that we had such a superior defense that Foles wouldn't be able to do anything against us? Look what happened. Sounds like sour grapes to me. Personally I'll be rooting for the Eagles, getting a little tired of having the Patriots win all the time.

Sure, the Patriots can probably play better on defense than the Vikings did against the Eagles, but Foles was on another level entirely during long stretches of that game. Brady has performed on that level at times too. I guess what I'm trying to say is, if the defense is just good, but the QB is perfect, the QB is going to carry the day. The Vikings defense was god-awful and met up with a QB in Foles that played perfect. The result speaks for itself. Let's say the Pats defense is better, or even much better. It still might not matter at the end of the game if Foles plays perfect again.

Not saying he is going to do that (I personally believe he won't. Like EVER play that well again), but if I'm wrong then Brady is going to have to be equally perfect. Could be a really exciting contest if both QBs show up and play at that same level. If only one does, it will likely be a blowout, albeit probably not as drastic a demolition as the Vikings defense suffered.

New England is New England and Brady is Brady so they'll win. Eagles looked like world beaters against a Viking team that played with little emotion and looked like their Super Bowl win happened the week before.

Got to hand it to the Eagles fan who posted because he was bang on.
Nothing better then having your team win a Championship like my Toronto Argonauts so please Vikings get it together. 48 years as a fan is way too long to wait. Win or lose I'm a Viking fan for LIFE.
