Are the Eagles our biggest competition for the SB?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I've been looking at the matchups and I feel pretty certain that the Seahawks and Eagles are going to win their games becuase Dallas is playing like poop and so are the Giants. If they both win do we play ...

The team that is the most complete and playing well besides us is the Eagles. Garcia has the O clicking and the D is back to form. It's going to be either us or the Eagles in the Superbowl barring major injuries.

No, we would play the higher seed which would be Seattle @ #3, Philly is #4. (If they both win.) But, I would rather play Philly again, than Seattle. I do not know why, but Seattle concerns me.

RE: Are the Eagles our biggest competition for the SB?

I have to agree that the Eagles are playing well on both sides of the ball. Jeff Garcia is having a excellent run as a back -up and I would consider them our toughest competiton in the playoffs. However, Jeff Garcia is 35, if the Giants give them a tough close game he is going to have to be superman to come in here and play a vastly improved Saiints defence, and with Hollis back he is going to have to beat us thowing the ball, if we can put pressure on him our offence should outscore them.

redjem25,

I just checked and Philly is the #3 seed so if they win we do play the Eagles? So you get your wish, but I'll start freaking out some. When we play our game consistently we can beat anybody so Payton needs to start game planning for the Eagles. Could be us vs. Chicago in the NFC Championship. If Seatlle beats Chicago the NFC Championship will be in the Dome. Boo-Yah!

Well, the thing I can say is that the Saints have improved since the last game against the Eagles and the Eagles aren't quite as formidable as they were when we last faced them. I'll be surprised and disappointed if the Seachickens don't beat the Bears. Grossman is a ticking time bomb of stupidity and erratic passing.

Yes, if they win we got Philly and I truly believe Seattle will beat Dallas so "Da Bears will play Seattle & lose.

I hope that there teams who hope to be playing the Saints rather than the Bears. I'm banking that no team still is taking New Orleans seriously and that our recent losses have been exremely flatfooted. A solid Payton game plan can really exploit that mindset. That and a riotous Superdome can make things that much more difficult for whomever we will face. So I guess a Seahawk game could be inviting, even though I said Dallas before..

I agree, Philly has got to be our greatest threat! They closed out the season with momentum with Garcia at the helm and their D is on fire right now. GO GIANTS!!
