I don't get it. We beat them by 41 points last time, yes, 41 points! I can't think of any other team this year that beat another team so badly this entire year. Do you know why we beat them so badly last time? Because they can't stop Brees passing game nor our running game. We ran and passed on them like a yoyo up and down and could have played our backups by the second quarter. In almost every position, they match up poorly against us. Yes, Foles will score more than 7 points unlike Wentz but Foles will not score more than 21 points in the dome and that includes garbage time. Foles doesn't play defense, Foles is not a God, nor does a team will themselves to victory over a much better team. For example, their secondary is so bad made up of third stringers and why Brees had a field day last time. Foles cannot will these third stringers to suddenly play like Deion Sanders. Its the exact same defense this time around. It makes for a great storyline like a movie, but this is real life, and in real life, the much better team wins as we will comfortably. No, it won't be by 41, I say around by 21 points. This is the best divisional matchup we could have hoped for.

What changed from the cowboys game on?
Cowboys were the first team to stop acting like we had a deep threat without Ginn and started sitting down on everything underneath. Others copied after that. Ginn was back for steelers and we put up 31. I'm not worried

You don't get it? Do you even Saints, bro? We're one Brett Favre brainfart away from being the most tragic postseason team in NFL history. Nearly every playoff exit we have is by a flukey team who shouldn't scare us having a play nicknamed on their way to winning.

Beastquake - when a 7-9 Seattle literally ran over us
Minneapolis Miracle?
The Vernon Davis Spectacular Showcase and ... okay, not a nickname, but you get the point.

What are we scared of? We're scared of waking up on Monday having witnessed the Philly Cheese Fake or the Brotherly Shove or the Quaker State Shake 'n Bake or some other nonsense miracle play that will be shown ad infinitum of TV commercials, on ESPN, during every football broadcast involving either the Eagles or the Saints forever.

We're scared of the thought of sitting at home and watching the Dallas Cowboys in the Super Bowl all because we couldn't stop Nick Foles from scrambling for 16 yards to convert a crucial 3rd and long.

Don't tell me about your numbers and matchups. It's not a rational fear, but try telling someone who's been mauled by a bear that he doesn't need to be afraid of that grizzly on the horizon.
2nd most. 28-3. Never forget

Also, defense wise, philly doesn’t have the personnel not even close to try to duplicate Dallas blueprint anyway.

I don’t know why some saints fans are so worried about the eagles front four. Brees pretty much had the time all game to throw at will and open lanes for Ingram and kamara. It’s the same front four as before. Nick is not going to be able to will that front four to suddenly play like warren sapp. I urge you to watch the game again on nfl replay or the coaches tape if you can get that and see for yourself how and why the eagles team could not stop us.

The only difference in the Eagles front four is that Tim Jernigan didn't play in the first game but he will in this one. I still don't see that as any reason to think that things will be different.

I don't think the score will resemble the first game but I also still think the Saints are a better team. We'll find out in a couple of days though won't we?

You’re right, my mistake but he is not a super game changer.
