    I think the Eagles could beat us... if they remain healthy providing we get a rematch. Then again I think it's very possible the Falcons beat us tonight despite being heavy favorites. These next 2 Division games will tell us a lot about what kind of team the Saints are... yes they've had impressive victories over NFC, and AFC East teams but the real test comes within the Division, against Atlanta a team that is building up to be contenders for the long haul in the South, and a Carolina team that is built to beat us.

    No doubt, injuries are a part of the game. But all I'm saying is that people are giving them a little bit too much credit for beating the Eagles and that if they meet in the future (like the NFC Championship game) it would be very wrong to assume the game would play out in a similar fashion.

    Move a month into the future and now Will Witherspoon is a big time MLB for the Eagles defense, the veteran Sean Jones is now the starter at FS, Todd Herramens is back and that allows Nick Cole to move back to RG where he belongs, Jeremy Maclin has progressed immensely since that game and most importantly the Eagles have Donovan McNabb back.

    That game was close for an entire half and then Kolb just came out guns blazing like Jay Cutler and Rex Grossman and just started slinging stuff recklessly. The turning point in that game was the pick 6 by Kolb and that will not happen with the McNabb at QB who is the least intercepted QB in NFL history who has only one interception on the year and that was on a great play by Jon Beason. Those momentum killing interceptions will not be there when McNabb is in the game.

    I think the Eagles can beat the Saints when they're healthy and at full strength. Those big runs up the gut won't be there with Witherspoon in the middle (Gaither was hurt) and with Sean Jones in the back of the defense (who just took over the starting FS spot and is fantastic in run defense). And IDK if anyone noticed how much better the Eagles offensive line got when Todd Herramens came back.

    That is impressive, but WTF does that have to do with this discussion?

    edit: on topic, I think it'll be Colts vs. Saints. I am not original.

    I'll still stick with the Patriots, and although I picked the Giants at the beginning of the season and was fairly confident with them in the first few weeks, I'll have to say the Saints based on the Giants' last few games.

    As much as I want to say the Ravens, if we met the Colts in the playoffs, I think we would get torched. Unless our pass defense improves tremendously between now and January, I really cant see us going far into the playoffs. I do agree that if we get hot right around the playoffs, we finally have an offense that can keep us in games, but we absolutely must get better against the pass.

    I do know one thing: The Pats are not a team I would want to play come January. They were a bit out of sync early in the season, but there is no QB Id rather have come playoff time then Tom Brady, and their defense has been lights out recently. I can definitely see them making the SB.

    NFC is a crapshoot IMO. I really like the Falcons to be honest, but they are too streaky for me to pick them to win the NFC. Also, dare I say, Cowboys have looked really good recently, and that triple headed running game could be nice late in the year, as long as Romo doesnt **** it up again.

    Ravens almost got there last yr, so I'll say Ravens. Indy Colts look like the obvious AFC choice but they choke in the playoffs to teams that beat them up physically, so I'm sticking with B-more.

    And the Saints will get there in the NFC is they remain relatively injury-free, but they replaced their fullback last wk. Brees looks more like an MVP every game
