this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Did the Saints get on the plane or are they planning to stay the weekend at the Moysant Airport Marriott? I'm tired of watching some poser hacks fill in for the team on the road while they argue over window ...

Only asking it now so we don't have to wonder..

Did the Saints get on the plane or are they planning to stay the weekend at the Moysant Airport Marriott? I'm tired of watching some poser hacks fill in for the team on the road while they argue over window seats and who buys the headsets for the in-flight movie.

I want visual confirmation that they did leave NO on a flight TO PHL.

I somewhat expect an early shock by Philly but believe that Payton and Ryan are more battle-tested and therefore will make necessary adjustments.

I somewhat disagree; I think our offense comes out firing on all cylinders. I've never seen them any different in the playoffs.

The defense may start slow, but they'll adjust and get their bearings as the game progresses

I believe the Eagles will be relying more on the Saints past history of road playoff games and cold weather and will be shocked at how well we play.

If Chip Kelly had a brain in his head he would realize that as bad as the Saints played in our last 2 play-off games, it was the PEDhawks and 39ers that had to come from behind to win!

Correct; they were late game defensive breakdowns... Drew and the offense has always been a stud in the playoffs...

Is it Saturday yet? I'm ready! I still think they should've left early to get familiar with the weather.

Saints were pretty weak in the '06 NFCC game

That settles it then, we are doomed to fail

But Drew did throw for 354 yards and 2 TDs against the 4th ranked defense, I believe...
