Are you looking past the Eagles this week?

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.

Mine too... I think it's the cynic in me.

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

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

Hail Mary
