  1. .. 1st of all, i'm not understanding all this love-fest for the Eagles.. I mean damn, I fly down there for my 1st Saints game in the Superdome, and they absolutely destroyed the Eagles, I mean for my 1st Saints game I couldn't have asked for anything more, was just as I expected.. Now, fast forward to this current day and time, and between the big mouths on TV and my fellow co-workers constantly asking me "ya think the Saints have it this weekend ??" .. smh.. I mean really, did something happen that I don't know about ?? .. & nm Foles, I don't care who's running that offense, I seen what I seen in week 11, that D is just straight harrrrrd, Eagles are about to find out what happens pt. 2.. add to that the Saints O-line is rested and ready to go, and to that you got coach wheeling around cash and a trophy, setting mousetraps, etc.. I mean I just don't get it, hardly a peep on NFLN, ESPN, etc.., almost like no one really wants to believe the Saints are the TRUE #1 seed.. my money sez that Payton is let'n our fellas know that "this game" is the one that shoulda' been played last year, and personally I think they're gonna kick the living crap out of the Eagles (again).. No fanfare, no hype, no props from the media ?? GOOD!.. IMO, the quieter the better, and if anyone doesn't believe it, [Mod edit TVP seek a higher level]

Your frustration is understandable, OP. In the big picture it's probably a good thing though. There's a lot of pressure for Foles to come out and be Superman with all the attention and press so hopefully he'll press and try to make the great plays. The Saints will simply play their game which should be good enough to win. Truth is, Eagles and their fans are doing all the talking but talk is cheap. Game is decided on the field.

The thing is that the Eagles are very capable of winning the game on Sunday just like the Saints are very capable of blowing them out again as well.

The Saints won 8 games by double digits this season and the Eagles won 2 by double D's.

If the Oline can give Brees time to throw I seriously doubt that the Eagles can match the Saints score for score. I just don't see the Eagles defense shutting down the Saints offense. The Saints offense put up about 550 yards against the Eagles the first time and as all the talking heads have so aptly pointed out that this is a different Eagles team and that may well be with Nick Foles at QB but Foles doesn't play defense does he?

All that said the game still has to be played and anything can happen in the NFL.

I remember all the overconfidence and 'dominate them' talk before the Cowboys game. Then the game happened.

That makes me nervous to a degree. I like our chances at home, but don't think it will be a blowout. I expect a close hard fought game.

The 'Minnesota Miracle' also made me not count my chickens.
That’s ok, I ain’t scared so I been counting your chickens for you.

Oh, I get that it's a stream of consciousness. Easier to hear than to read.

I literally watched three segments today on ESPN about the Saints, one on Fox Sports, and another on NFLN Good Morning Football.

This “no one is talking about us” narrative has to stop.

But if it gets a portion of fans amped, then “no respect for the Saints!” away.

In the playoffs everyone thinks they're going to beat everyone else. The Saints haven't blown anyone out in almost a couple months, meanwhile Foles is back on top of an Eagles team which was at its lowest when the Saints were at their highest.

It's just narrative man, let it play out. Media has to tell a story and they've told the Brees story like a thousand times during this season and others. I remember a couple months back and all I could hear on NFL/ESPN news was about the Saints.

The Saints lost their national shine man. Lets hope it's temporary. Meanwhile, Foles has seemingly come back from the dead...after rising from nothing last year, he's back yet again. It's just storyline.

And paragraph breaks are your friend.

Okay failcon pushers, what about what I typed isn’t true???
You underestimate Drew Brees on several levels. What he lacks in youth he makes up for in experience and football knowledge. Processes his reads quick. Philly secondary is a dumpster fire. He's racked up more yards with inferior offensive lines to this one. All he does is WIN. His physical ability is still at about the level of a 30 year old. Expect him to keep winning and playing for 2-3 more years.

Man ignore those things. I’ve seen em on posts that talk about being thankful that someone’s injury will heal. Which is beyond crazy. Just ignore or make light of em.
Stay on the right side of Andrus and the people he chooses to police the place and all will be copacetic. 😊

NFL and media are afraid people will believe this to be a blowout by the Saints.
Ergo build up Foles and the Eagles so people tune in.

What is with all this ridiculous “Oline is hobbled/injured/damaged” talk. If you all haven’t been paying attention, we Haven’t been this healthy going into a game since November!!

I really wonder where all the woodwork is for al these posters to come out from.

Sorry but we aren’t banged up, we are at at almost full health that we could be at this point Sans a pectoral muscle for Armstead! Drew Brees is the most w perienced playoff QB in the NFC and we have a defence that has been playing lights out the last two months on season. And NO I don’t count the last game.

This is over worrying. The simple fact is, we match up best with Philly than any team left in NFC. It’s just a matter of personell. If they couldn’t beat us and got blown out with an injured o line and no WR depth, then forgive me for expecting us to kick their butts to high heaven with our starting line on and Ginn back
