Much like CaveDwellerAF many of the Eagles fans are OK with the Saints winning. They're not admitting defeat or saying the Saints will win. Just that if they had to lose in the playoffs, they'd rather it be the Saints to knock them off. Even RABID Eagles fans aren't talking like this is going to be an easy game (common among Eagles fans... every game is a cake walk, or should be). The most I hear is "it's going to be a good game" or "it'll be close". I honestly think it's tough for ANYONE to root against this team at this time. The local paper in my area isn't doing it's normal 'breaking down' of the Saints, finding all their weaknesses and tearing them down as bad. It's like if the Saints win they want to be able to make sure they don't look like hypacrits the next week when they start printing articles saying how good they are.

Does andone else not in the Gulf region see the same sort of thing happening?
I live right outside Colorado Springs and it doesn't seem that way at all. The Broncos fans I have talked to and the papers I have read are just commenting on how your team has turned it around and the Saints are the team to beat. The story about the devastated area and how the fans need this is no longer the main story. The main story is how well built your team is and its many weapons to include a great coaching staff!

I just keep remembering 92. It's burned into my brain. We had that game, and in the blink of an eye, we didn't. It was like a nightmare you couldn't wake up from. This game is going to be a good one. I have NEVER felt like this before. I am anxious, and nauseous, at the same time. Geez. I really want this one guys. Really bad.
