    ...to get you to change your mind about Reid and McNabb?

    Well let's put it this way. If we win the SB, I'm not going to feel like I deserve to celebrate it. If I did I'd feel like a bandwagon bitch, and I'm just not one.

    Regardless though, I'd still want them gone. I love QB's that move around and make plays with their legs, and McNabb doesn't do that anymore. He's Randall Cunningham after the broken leg.

    And I don't think I can take anymore of Reid's playcalling, SB or not. When we run the ball and balance the plays, we win. When we pass all game long, we usually lose.

    I know it sounds weird, but I'm sticking to my principles.

    I have the WS anyway. I'm good for a while. :D

    Pitchers and catchers report like a week after the Super Bowl, so I'll be preoccupied by that point anyway. I love my Eagles and all, but this year, baseball season trumps an Eagles SB.

    Everyone is picking the Eagles.

    The score is going to be

    Minnesota 41 Philadelphia 13

    I don't see Peterson beating us up. He's your only weapon. We can bring guys up from the secondary and leave our coverage one on one. Your receivers can't beat our secondary.

    Well, if I were a betting man, I'd pick the Eagles. However, the Eagles have stunk up the joint in several games this year, and I imagine McNabb will be running around a lot in the backfield. Whether or not he escapes will determine if the Eagles win because if you have to convert a bunch of 3 and 12s, you won't.

    I think whatever happens, the game will be decided by a field goal or less.

    Also, if the season had ended after week 16 with the Redskins game instead of week 17 with the Cowboys game, the Vikings would be favored. And I think that Philly hammered the Cowboys because the Cowboys were a mess more than anything.

    I'm not basing anything on the Cowboys game. I'd have been just as happy with a 10-3 victory. We gave them what they had coming to them.

    Far as our game, you have to contend with multiple offensive weapons, where as we only have to contend with Peterson. I would hope that if McNabb is being chased around a lot, we could adjust and hit you with Westbrook.

    We're going to have to establish our running game throughout the playoffs or we won't be going very far. McNabb can't do it all on his own anymore.

    I can't help but be excited about tomorrow's game. I may not like McNabb and Reid anymore, but there's players on this team that truely deserve to win because they play their asses off every week. Dawkins, Westbrook, Runyan, Akers. These guys have been with the team for years through all the heartbreaking losses, and even though McNabb may have ultimately been a shortcomer, these guys deserve a ring.

    I'm pumped the fuck up!
