I voted no but I think with Wentz out we are the better team

I wish we wouldn't have lost the Carolina game and they

We're not Steelers fans. We're not stupid enough to look past an opponent in the playoffs.

But I'll say this. If Philly fan comes on this board and starts trolling, then he's gonna get an earful from me. I believe fully that we're the better team. I'm supremely confident in our team's ability to beat the Eagles. Confidence, however, is way different than "looking past" the Eagles.

I'll take it a step further. I'm incredibly optimistic that we actually WILL beat them. Sorry, pessimists, but I'm not walking the Green Mile until I actually get the death sentence. But looking past them? No. I'm focused completely on the Eagles, just as Zimmer and the gang are.

Vikings could be 17-0 and facing the lowest seeded wild card team right now and I'd still have an uneasy feeling. Anything can happen in the playoffs.

I had mentioned weeks ago that the Eagles were no joke. Some doubted this and said they had it so easy up to this point. Even without Foles they are better, imo, then the Saints. They have a solid front 4, and our Oline hasnt been protecting or making holes for the RBs. If they dont this week, we are toast. Th eagles fans suck, they are going to be so loud. I sure hope Zimmer doesnt think just because Wentz isnt playing the game should be fairly easy. At least the weather sounds good so far, but who knows. It could always rain and make the field a mess. Our Oline need to run block, and our Dline need to put some dam pressure on Foles. Its gone to sleep for weeks now. If we make Foles pass a lot, we should be ok with Rhodes, Waynes, Send, and Smith. But we gotta stop the ground game and short passes. And hope the D doesnt completely fall asleep in the 2nd half.

31-0 so far in the voting. Weird how the theory of fans looking past the Eagles doesn't seem to be holding up.

I asked this before but I don't remember the answer. Is there a way to vote on polls from your phone?

No. The Eagles are a good team, regardless of the year.

I watched the Eagles beat the Vikes in January 2005 and 2009,,, I don't take Philly lightly

According to The Football Database site, Vikings and Eagles split the season series 13-13 but the Vikings are 0-3 against the Eagles on playoff games.
