Pulse checking the board. Are you already thinking Super Bowl or are you focused on the Eagles on Sunday?

I am thinking about the Eagles, but imagining being in the Super Bowl.

What fan of what team still in play at this point is not?

Honestly it's not even about how I think our teams match up. There are no easy games in the playoffs and especially one like this. We're talking about the #1 and #2 seeds in the NFC.

It's been a long time since the Vikings have been past the NFC Championship game. I wasn't alive the last time. I don't think any Vikings fans that watched 1998 and 2009 would consider being in the super bowl a done deal.

they're the number 1 seed playing at home...I make it a coin toss game at best. I'm expecting it to be a tight, defence led game..it may well come down to which kicker is on it on the day

Indeed. I think the thought of fans looking past this game is silly but I've seen that viewpoint tossed around a lot so I wanted to measure that sentiment.

Honestly how do you look past *any* team, when it takes *!THAT!* to get you past your prior game. Also, any Vikings fan worth his salt knows the pain that comes with losing a game he/she was looking forward to, much less past.

Hell no. The fame is outdoor, on grass, in probably wet weather. I will never look past the next opponent. I've been saying for months that Philly is legit.

Right now there are 19 votes and a total of ZERO people looking past the Eagles. So all the lurkers can settle down now.

Of course everyone will say "no." I think the varying levels of confidence might be interesting. My confidence level has gotten worse and worse.

As long as the Vikes aren't we are ok.

As an aside, what do the following have in common?

Hail Mary
Music City Miracle
Immaculate Reception

None of them won the Super Bowl. The Steelers lost in the ACC championship.

Let's hope we don't suffer the same comedown!

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
Had to come to the house of pain on Sunday

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.

Post Re: Are you looking past the Eagles this week?
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.
